"Two souls who have long buried their passions are about to be consumed"--Page 4 of cover.In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two souls who have long buried their passions are about to be consumed…

Ever since their scorching affair ended years ago, Julian, the Nightkind King, and Melisande, daughter of the Light Fae Queen, have tried to put the past behind them—and distance between them. But when a war breaks out between Julian and Justine, a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind council, they find themselves thrown together under treacherous circumstances…

Kidnapped as leverage against Julian, Melly is convinced that her former lover won’t be rushing to her rescue. But when Julian gives himself up to save her, they both end up Justine’s captives. Armed only with their wits and their anger, Melly and Julian must work together to escape. But will they be able to ignore their complicated history, or will the fiery passion that once burned them blaze again?

Midnights Kiss3.5 Sta...

Midnight's Kiss3.5 StarsJulian, the Nightkind King, and Melisande, the Light Fae heir, were once involved in a torrid affair until trust issues tore them apart and led to hurt feelings and a war of words. Thus, when Melly is taken hostage to use as leverage against Julian, no one is more surprised than he at his willingness to sacrifice himself for a woman he believes betrayed him ... can Melly and Julian put aside their differences to escape their captors and protect the Nightkind demense from internal and external threats?Series Note: It is highly recommended that the books be read in order for the backstory to Julian's character. It is, however, essential to read book #7 prior to this as as book #8 is a direct continuation of that storyline. A decent addition to the series but not one of the best.Melly and Julian's second chances romance has its moments with their bickering and "sex on the run" scenes ratcheting up the chemistry. That said, the whole 20 years of holding a grudge because they couldn't or wouldn't have an honest conversation with one another until they were locked up in a cell is definitely irritating. Furthermore, the reason for their silly misunderstanding is overly simplistic and it is difficult to believe how easily they were both deceived. The secondary plot involving Justine's attempts to take over the Nightkind council is underdeveloped and the identity of her accomplice is glaringly obvious. The confrontation scenes at the end are, nonetheless, action packed and satisfying and it was good to see Xavier and Tess as well as Carling and Rune. All in all, Midnight's Kiss is surprisingly entertaining despite its problems and I look forward to reading Graydon's book, which is next.

Review courtesy of All...

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy. allthingsuf.com MIDNIGHT'S KISS promises to show the sexier side of the vampire from SERPENT'S KISS, as Julian was first heir to Carling's throne and then a threat to her life. And while this transition from villain to hero was successful, neither Julian nor Melly were able to steal my heart. If you love old lovers thrown together and working through past misunderstandings, MIDNIGHT'S KISS offers just that trope with a side of political intrigue, immortality, and vampirism. While Harrison's vampiric society is intellectually interesting, political struggles alone weren't enough to keep me invested in our hero's well being. Even Julian's romance felt flat, as his reactions and reflections on Carling had more emotional impact for me than the rather telenovela explanation for his past break up with Melly (which managed to feel both predictable and a little ridiculous). Despite this, an Elder Races novel with a few weaknesses is still a sexy, well written Paranormal Romance that has me anxious for the installment in the series. Ignoring what kept Julian and Melly apart, their chemistry together is undeniable. While Julian and Melly aren't going to unseat Dragos and Pia, or Grace and Khalil, or even Carling and Rune as my favorite Elder Races couple, they're still in good company. Getting a glimpse of Julian's motivations and relationships, both with Melly and his fellow vampires, was a nice compliment to his earlier presence in the Elder Races world. It was just that switch from villain to hero that was my favorite part of MIDNIGHT'S KISS, so new readers will be missing out if they start the series here. Sexual Content: Sex scenes.
