Edge of Darkness (#3 Hunter Legacy) Lara Adrian

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian is back with Edge of Darkness, the latest sizzling, spellbinding novel in the Hunter Legacy series of vampire romances set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.

As a survivor of the horrific Hunter program, Breed vampire and former assassin Knox is a solitary man, closed off to the pain of love—and loss. A loner by choice, Knox deals in death and dark justice, expecting nothing in return. Until one snowy night he drifts into a remote town in northern Maine, where a determined beauty enlists his lethal assistance, tempting not only his hunger, but his wounded heart as well.

Lenora Calhoun has lived in tiny Parrish Falls all her life. Owner of the local diner that’s been in her family for generations, Leni’s as stalwart and stubborn as the tall pines that surround her. That unshakable resolve doesn’t sit well with everyone, least of all the most powerful family in the logging town. Leni’s been the target of their animosity for years, but with their escalating threats now putting an innocent child’s safety at risk, she takes a desperate chance on a dangerous stranger—a man who is something more than human. Knox’s deadly skills and turbulent gaze should be warning enough for Leni to guard her heart, yet she cannot deny the yearning he stirs in her blood. For the merciless Breed male is the only man she can trust in a town full of secrets, and where taking a stand could rip away everything she holds dear.

While this novel is Book 3 in the Hunter Legacy series, each story in this Midnig
ht Breed spin-off series can be read as a complete standalone with HEA and no cliffhangers. 

Five Stars

This new addition to the Hunter Legacy Series has an intriguing storyline. The main characters are interesting and are exquisitely portrayed.

Knox doesn't have a set destination in mind, and he goes where his boots take him. What is meant to be a short stop in a diner changes everything.

Leni is happy running her family diner until the past returns to threaten her and what she holds dear.

Knox is a hunter, born through the terrible regime of Dragos. His heartbreak of a recent loss has caused him to become a loner. When he meets Leni and witnesses the attempt to intimidate her, he struggles against his protective instint. When he realises that there has been a deliberate attack on her life, he decides to hang around to make sure that she is safe. Leni is independent and usually fends for herself, but she isn't so confident when it comes to the one she has sworn to protect. She also has a secret.

Knox and Leni have a shaky start even when the attraction between them is hard to ignore. The story development is well paced and besides romance, there is danger, and there is corruption.

This story captured and held my attention right through. I would fully recommend to readers of the paranormal genre. Terrific series.

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
