by Lara Adrian
Series: Midnight Breed #14
Release Date: (about)June 1, 2016

An immortal warrior must decide between loyalty to his people and desire for a beautiful Breed female determined to bring a powerful enemy to justice at any cost, in this new novel in the “steamy and intense”


This book is a total mystery to me. I haven’t checked out the FB pages or Twitter to get more of the scoop, but there has to be more about this. The blurb is tiny and it’s only available for preorder at iBooks. (Which you can support me and the author by clicking on the image and preordering). For a release that is coming up in just a few weeks, this info seems pretty bare bones. This, of course makes me even more curious about the circumstances surrounding the book. The newsletter from November mentions that the other preorders will be up when they have a firm release date, so I’m not totally sure that June 1 is drop-dead release date.

Anyway, I do know that this book is about Zael, and Tavia’s breed half-sister Brynne. I really have been interested in Zael’s character. I think I’m going to love him. His attitude has had me grinning in the previous books.

I hope the preorders pop up soon, and the exact release date is announced. There is also going to be a Virtual Signing, which of course, I will be jumping in on. I may even get a signed one for a lucky winner on the site. We’ll see how fast they go on sale day.

If you have been following the breed series and just how wide the world has been expanding, you are going to want to get Defy The Dawn. New things are popping up all the time. Between the Atlanteans and Opus Nostrum, the Breed are a busy bunch!

About Lara Adrian

As a child, Lara Adrian used to sleep with the covers up around her neck, afraid she might become the midnight prey of deadly vampires. Later on, under the influence of Bram Stoker and Anne Rice, she had to wonder if her fear wasn't actually something else: a secret desire to walk in a darker world, to live a dangerous and sensual dream with a man of seductive, preternatural power. It is that twining of fear and desire that fuels Lara's own fantasies today, and the idea that she explores in her New York Times bestselling Midnight Breed series of vampire romance novels from Bantam Dell Books.

With an ancestry stretching back to the Mayflower and the court of King Henry VIII, Lara Adrian lives with her husband in coastal New England, surrounded by centuries-old graveyards, hip urban comforts, and the endless inspiration of the broody Atlantic Ocean.

LARA ADRIAN is a New York Times and #1 international bestselling author with nearly 4 million books in print and digital worldwide and translations licensed in more than 20 countries. Her upcoming release is FOR 100 REASONS, the third book in a contemporary romance series that reviewers are calling "phenomenal" and "one of the hottest series of the year."
