From the Back Cover
"Without question, this is one of the genre's most fascinating, distinctive, and mesmerizing paranormal series."--Romantic Times
Hail Glorious Reader:
I was born the noble son of a legendary Roman senator. I walked through the ancient world as a general, admired and supreme until a brutal betrayal caused me to bargain my soul. Now I'm an immortal Dark-Hunter, bound to protect mankind from the evil scourge that haunts it. Over the centuries, I've seen many frightening things: plagues, pestilence, disco music...
And now Tabitha Devereaux. A human, she has trained herself to fight vampires every bit as capably as any Dark-Hunter. Idiosyncratic and off-beat, she is my personal bane-and yet she beguiles me. There are only two small problems. She happens to be the twin of my mortal enemy's wife. More than that, Tabitha and her sister are being stalked by a power that will not rest until everyone she holds dear is dead.
Unlike my Dark-Hunter brethren, I rely on no one but myself. They spurned me and I turned my back on them. But the only way to save Tabitha and her family is to find some way to bridge a two thousand-year-old feud.
They say opposites attract, but can they stay together when even the Fates conspire to keep them apart? Then again, the Fates have never dealt with the likes of Tabitha Devereaux before. They're going to be in for quite a fight...
"An entertaining thrill ride."--Publishers Weekly on Kiss of the Night

When he runs chest first in the stake of Tabitha Devereaux, the last thing he expects is for her to nurse him better and show him kindness. After all in all his two thousand centuries, more than half the Dark Hunters he knows would happily stake him and leave him to rot in the street. But then Tabitha is not like anyone else Valerius has ever known.
As Tabitha discovers the true reasons behind Valerius's aloof and often seemingly cold behaviour she becomes fiercely protective of this misunderstood immortal. As they work together against the evil forces threatening her family, Valerius struggles to protect Tabitha as well, and to find acceptance from her family, which includes her brother-in-law and his long-term enemy Kyrian, who died a brutal death at the hands of Valerius's grandfather.
The love story between these two characters was everything wonderful that we've come to expect from the Dark Hunter series, but the ending was wrapped up a little quickly for my liking, with not enough time spent on the relationships with other Dark Hunters that Valerius has always had difficulty with.
But regardless this was still a great story in the Dark Hunter series and has left me eager for the next one on the shelf. Definitely recommended for fan of the series!
This is the seventh book in the series and features the Dark Hunter Valerius and Tabitha Devereaux. We have already met Valerius in previous books and he has come across as being quite standoffish and generally not a character I thought I would like however when teamed with Tabitha who is totally free spirited he has to come out of his shell. Valerius is not liked by the majority of the Dark Hunters with him being from ancient Rome and the majority of the hunter's being from ancient Greece and to top everything off he has his now God brother tormenting him with rain showers, thunderbolts etc for his revenge/amusement. Tabitha goes against the family by having feelings for Valerius as he is her brother in law Kyrian's enemy as he looks identical to his grandfather (of the same name Valerius) who was responsible for the murder of Kyrian when he was human. Desiderus is back from the grave and wants revenge on Kyrian for managing to kill him and sets after Tabitha. I really liked this story as I loved the way Tabby manages to get Valerius to come out of his shell and that I got to see a different side to a character I didn't initially like from the other books.
It took me quite a while to get around to discovering this series as when you look up Sherrilyn Kenyon on Amazon and these books in list order it actually shows Dragonswan as being the first book (but it's not) and Dragonswan is never ever available to buy! As a girl who likes to read all books in a series and most definitely the first one in a series, thinking that I couldn't get the first book did actually stop me starting the series. I have only just discovered that the first book is actually Fantasy Lover, read this and have now proceeded to order the rest of the series:) Sherrilyn has now joined the ranks on Gena Showalter and Kresley Cole on my favourite authors list and I can't wait to read the next one.
This was a very good book( I read it twice) I loved that we had a chance to see other characters from the previous books. I was a little sad during his wedding but Zarek made up for it.(notice how many times I used the word love!)
I hope the other book are as good as this.
The Dark Hunter series is full of twists and turns and amazingly written characters.
Book Seven in the series, this was one of the trickiest stories for the characters as there was a lot of background info for them to get over and sift through.
And an old enemy to get rid of!
