Continuing our Authors After Dark Spotlights, today we are featuring Lara Adrian. She published her first Breeds book, Kiss of Midnight in 2007, and tomorrow will release the tenth book in that series.
Lara Adrian’s Breed series is a dark, convoluted PNR world filled with non stop action, blood curling suspense, and hot smexy characters that will hold you hostage to the very end. The Breed is a group of otherworldly warriors, descended from aliens who landed on our world thousands of years ago, who have chosen to stand between humanity and rogue breeds who prey on those weaker then they. Imbibed with powers that are determined by their genetic similarity to their ancestors, these warriors have a similarity to vampires but only in the fact they require blood to live. They have a strict code though that they NEVER take from a human, least they succumb to the bloodlust and become what they are fighting against. Mates are found through humans who are predisposed with a genetic marker that allows them compatibility. Each breedmate is determined through a birthmark they carry. Each book gives us the story of one Breed member’s search and finding of their one true love. It’s not a easy journey for either and that’s one reason I love this series. Ms. Adrian doesn’t guarantee that our heroes and heroines will have an easy time of it and she often makes them work very hard even after mate to ensure their HEA.
