Night Embrace (Dark Hunter #2)
9 journalers for this copy...
Talon was once a Celt warrior cursed by his ancient gods. Following the murder of his sister, the dying Talon had made a deal with the goddess Artemis. He had been given one act of vengeance against the clan who betrayed him, in exchange for his soul and his eternal service as a Dark-Hunter. Talon has sworn to fight Dalmons and rescue the human souls they've captured. He has never had cause to regret this choice - until he meets Sunshine Runningwolf. The unconventional Sunshine should be Talon's perfect woman. She is beautiful, sexy and isn't looking for a long-term commitment. But the more time Talon spends in her company the more he starts yearning for dreams of love and family that he buried centuries ago. But loving Sunshine would be dangerous for both of them. Talon is destined never to know peace or happiness while his enemies still seek to destroy him and everyone close to him...

Sent yesterday to the next person in the ring!
I am enjoying that each book is centered on a set of characters and information about other characters in their sphere is just pieced out. The books feel less like sag ways, and more like complete stories. Now that I am reading the first book I can see that this book’s writing is little smoother and provides more descriptive language.
I look forward to reading more of this series. This book will be shipped along with #1 and #3.
I liked this book a bit better than Night Pleasures, the first in the series. Though some of the same things that bugged me about Night Pleasures still plagued me here as well. For instance, mostly towards the beginning of the book, Kenyon would drag on an on about how gorgeous Talon's body was, how sculpted his pecs, saying the same thing over and over and over.... Those parts read like some sappy romance novel to me and I find my mind wandering. I remember thinking, like I did with the first book, that if this didn't stop, I was putting down this book and not picking up any more in the series.
Fortunately, after the first 100 pages or so, the author must figure we've got the picture: Talon is a hottie! Okay, enough already! I guess you can't say that she doesn't develop her characters well... I just think it's a bit too well sometimes, and a bit too syrupy. But once all that has stopped, you can really get into the meat of the rest of the story, and the danger stalking Talon and Sunshine through the streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras.
Unlike Night Pleasures, which left me unsure as to whether or not I want to continue reading this series, this one left me wanting more. :)
