Lara Adrian is one of those authors that had me from book one page one. She’s in my top 10–the 10 authors I read everything I can get my hands on of theirs, follow their newsletter, and wait with bated breath for their every new release.
Lara writes action, tension, and romance so incredibly well. Her Breed race represents a unique twist on vampires. She fearlessly takes on themes of good and evil. And I’m a gonner for the New-England-based world she has created, being a New Englander myself, though I live in Seattle now (I’m one of those freaks who actually misses the snow!)
Please enjoy these couple of memorable lines from Lara’s most recent release Darker After Midnight. Please run out and buy it and the other books in her Midnight Breed series. You can read more about Lara Adrian and her books here: http://www.laraadrian.com/home.php#quiet

Against her will, she stilled, her senses responding to him like the tide stretching to meet the moon.–(p. 126)
