Night Embrace

Official information

Night Embrace Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: Dark-Hunter

Publisher: St. Martin's

Life is great for me. I have my chicory coffee, my warm beignets, and my best friend on the cell phone. Once the sun goes down, I am the baddest thing prowling the night: I command the elements, and I know no fear. For centuries, I've protected the innocent and watched over the mankind, making sure they are safe in a world where nothing is ever certain. All I want in return is a hot babe in a red dress, who wants nothing more from me then one night.

Instead, I get a runaway Mardi Gras float that tries to turn me into roadkill and a beautiful woman who saves my life but can't remember where she put my pants. Flamboyant and extravagant, Sunshine Runningwolf should be the perfect woman for me. She wants nothing past tonight, no ties, no long-term commitments.

But every time I look at her, I start yearning for dreams that I buried centuries ago. With her unconventional ways and ability to baffle me, Sunshine is the one person I find myself needing. But for me to love her would mean her death. I am cursed never to know peace or happiness-not so long as my enemy waits in the night to destroy us both.

--Talon of the Morrigantes

My review

Night Embrace proved to be an interesting dichotomy. It has sexy, rich and (as always) tortured hero, who is more than a thousand years old. A heroine who is a nutcase. A curse. An impending threat. The impossibility of them ending up together. And the passion which makes difficult for them to keep their hands to themselves.

On the other hand, we have a Hot hero, a somewhat unique heroine (not the brightest bulb on the tree I grant you that, but she sure was refreshing after tons of look-alikes), lots of humor, compelling secondary characters (can't wait for Zarek's or Acheron's stories), an evil plot and a world full of danger and ancient myths coming to life.

Well, I enjoyed Night Embrace thoroughly and simply know more pleasure is in store for me if I keep reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's books.
