Shades of Midnight (A Midnight Breed Series) - By Lara Adrian
Something inhuman is stalking the frigid Alaskan wilds, leaving unspeakable carnage in its wake. For bush pilot Alexandra Maguire, the killings stir memories of a horrific event she witnessed as a child and evoke in her the inexplicable sense of otherness she has long felt but never fully understood . . . until a darkly seductive stranger with secrets of his own enters her world.
Sent from Boston on a mission to investigate the savage attacks and stop the slaughter, vampire warrior Kade has his own reasons for returning to the frigid, forbidding place of his birth. Haunted by a secret shame, Kade soon realizes the stunning truth of the threat he faces--a threat that will jeopardize the fragile bond he has formed with the courageous, determined young woman who arouses his deepest passions and most primal hungers. But in bringing Alex into his world of blood and darkness, Kade must confront both his own personal demons and the even greater evil that could destroy all he holds dear.

--Shades of Midnight was a good book, the first in the Midnight Breed Series that I've read. Maybe I should have read the other ones first to get in the mood for this one? I'm not sure, but it honestly took me a little bit to get into it. Don't get me wrong there were some great scenes in the first half of the book, like when she stumbles upon Kade half naked, or what they shared in the cabin. ;) But once the chemistry ignited between Kade & Alex the book went to a whole different level for me. Their ups and downs through the second half of the book kept me on edge. At some point I couldn't even put the book down to sleep. Having so much of Kade & Alex's personal stories in the book I think really helped bring them together and layout a great plot. Now I can't wait to read Taken by Midnight to find out what is happening with the cliff hanger that was left WIDE open at the end of this book!
