Publisher's Summary

Once, they lived in secret alongside mankind. Now, emerged from the shadows, the Breed faces enemies on both sides - human and vampire alike. No one knows that better than Lazaro Archer, one of the eldest, most powerful of his kind. His beloved Breedmate and family massacred by a madman 20 years ago, Lazaro refuses to open his heart again.

Sworn to his duty as the leader of the Order's command center in Italy, the last thing the hardened warrior wants is to be tasked with the rescue and safekeeping of an innocent woman in need of his protection. But when a covert mission takes a deadly wrong turn, Lazaro finds himself in the unlikely role of hero with a familiar, intriguing beauty he should not desire but cannot resist.

Melena Walsh has never forgotten the dashing Breed male who saved her life as a child. But the chivalrous hero of her past is in hard contrast to the embittered, dangerous man on whom her safety now depends. And with an unwanted - yet undeniable - desire igniting between them, Melena fears that Lazaro's protection may come at the price of her heart....

Not that great

I didn't really like either one of these characters. Way to much sex, and I wasn't convinced of his love for her after loving his first mate so much. Wish I had skipped this one.

I LOVE this series!

So much action and romance packed into a short novella that leaves you completely satisfied. Strong aloha bale breed with an equally strong, intelligent mate. After do many novels I still haven't tried or got bored. Now if our human makes were equally intense we'd all be walking around with a content smile on our faces 😚

Second chance for Lazaro

This story was short and sweet. The narrator was awesome as usual. The chemistry between the characters was just right. Mel and Lazaro were likable characters and they fit together. I’m wish we had more back story about the villain’s choice to betray The Breeds but I’m sure it will come up in later stories.

Couldn't get into it.

Monotone narration kept me from being able to get interested in this book. Didn't finish.

Glad to see Lazaro happy again...

Another great midnight breed book from Lara. As usual, Hilary Huber rocks another perfect story. Glad she continues to narrate this series...

Tipical novella

This novella is about what you would expect. It had the potential to be a great story but followed the typical pattern that hurried to the finish.
