Book Description

She wants out

Party girl Alexia Blackburn is only hanging around the vampire compound until her best friend—the queen—has her baby. After that, nothing is going to stop Alexia from getting back to daylight, safety, and feeling like a normal human being. But leaving the vampire world has one big catch...

He needs her to stay

Head of vampire security Lee Goram has hated and distrusted humans for centuries. Feeding on vampire blood has kept him strong...but now it's killing him—and he's horrified to discover that Alexia may hold the key to his cure. He'd rather die defending his king than admit his weakness, but time is running out for the great vampire warrior...

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally delicious! June 3, 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Emotionally delicious! I love Staab’s snarky dialogue and no character does it quite like Alexia, the human trapped in a mansion of vampires for her own protection. Add in Lee, the vampire warrior who has hated and mistrusted humans his whole life, and you get two people who secretly want each other, but hate the fact that they do. Trading verbal jabs at each other to cover up their feelings builds a lot of sexual tension and you know what happens then…hubba hubba! I'm a sucker for this kind of troupe.

Oh, there’s some other stuff going on in the book like an evil monk from Lee’s past trying to bring another plague on the world, the Vampire King’s wife is having a baby, and a sweet secondary love story finds a conclusion. All good stuff! I have really enjoyed the Chronicles of Yavn and would recommend the series to any PNR lover. They can all be read as stand alones, but why cheat yourself?

Let’s get back to Lee and Lexi. I like to highlight favorite quotes as I read, but by page four I had to get a little pickier because there were too many to use. Here are some of my favorites to give you a taste of what fun these two are:

“Her tank top and cargo shorts had been just fine outside in the sticky August air. Inside the royal vampire estate where they kept the lights down and the temperature meat-locker fabulous? Not so much.”

“Listening to Lee talk was like getting buffed all over by a loofah in a hot shower. Abrasive and raw, but at the same time decadent and delicious.”

“On a good day, Lee and Alexia managed to push each other’s ‘don’t make me cut you’ buttons in ascending order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars not enough! June 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The third book is even better and that's not easy considering how good the previous books were. Elisabeth Staab has the ability to deliver excitement in the paranormal realm without losing any of the power of human emotion and it is addictive, enthralling and just plain good reading. It is not so much that Lee is super sexy, super strong and super smart like an alpha male that wins our heart but rather that he is plagued by doubts and fears common to all of us as he struggles to protect his world. Lexi too has issues and these give her a vulnerability that again is easy to relate to: her background for one has its hidden pain and then to be an human outsider in a place where she has no control is frightening and so we want them to overcome their problems, we want them to be together because everything about them is so vicariously delicious, and because together nothing can defeat them.

This is one very good author because underlying the romance is a strong plot, an amazing interweaving of previous characters both good and bad that strengthen the world-building and an ability to manipulate words that keeps us glued to the page. Please keep writing in any genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun sexy read June 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Hunter by Night, Elisabeth Staab
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Vampires, romance – I’m in....:) This was an enjoyable read, not too heavy, some decent action and a real story and hot romance to back it up. I haven't read the first two books but a quick read of the descriptions and it was easy to follow this one anyway. I think reading them first would enhance the enjoyment of this one though. Too many books too little time :(
So, we've human hater vampire Lee, 700 years old, and holding a grudge all that time, blaming them for the death of his family. He's guarding the queen's best friend, human Alexia. Poor Lexi, she's been friends with the queen back in the human world when they were just two carefree people, and now the queen is with the king, and having his child Lexi is stuck in a world where she feels she doesn't fit. Lee's not the only human hater here, she's made a few friends but in the main she's lonely, lost, and doesn't know what she's going to do. It doesn't help that she's a huge crush on Lee too....and yet all she seems to do is irritate him at every turn. That's just the sort of pairing I love – where they have to work to find a way to each other, where there are obstacles at every turn. Its fun seeing just how they make it, and there's always drama when things go wrong, and you know by now how much I love, love, love lots of that!
Alongside their romance is the very real feeling of danger, of looming war threatening both humans and the vampires, the difficulties of who to trust, of whether “my enemies enemy is my friend” is really true when dealing with both Guardian and Wizard enemies....There's lots of action from different sources, and romance problems between other couples too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one yet! June 3, 2014
By Mich_Mc
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hunter by Night is the 3rd and final instalment in this part of the Chronicles of Yavn series and it is by far the best book yet.

We first met Alexia, in King of Darkness where she was the heroine, Isabel's best friend. Now Isabel is Queen and heavily pregnant with her first child and Lexi's place in her life is a little less significant. All she really wants is to get a little normalcy in her life, instead she is cooped up, the only human in an estate full of vampires, vampires who are always on the brink of war with the wizards.
Lee is the head of security and always seems to be catching Lexi doing exactly what he has forbid her from doing. Lee and Lexi have butted heads since they first met, they have snarked and sniped at each other for 3 books and now we see their relationship evolve as Lee has no choice but to trust her with his secrets if either, or both of them want to survive.

This is the book I have been waiting for since I first read King of Darkness, I had a hard time enjoying Thad and Isabel's story as I found myself desperate to read on to see if Lee and Lexi had any more interactions. I love the banter between them, Lexi is a fun party girl with a hell of a sharp wit and Lee is a strong alpha male who doesn't take any crap but together, the sparks really fly. They both have secrets and hard painful pasts that we have been glimpsing as the story evolves. The budding romance isn't the only thing in this book, battles are waged, traitors are uncovered and tentative truces are born as new enemies emerge. It was a fantastic tale which had a little bit of everything. I have never known two little words to give me goosebumps like "Lee surrendered" did. I hope Elisabeth revisits the series in the future cause I'd love to read more, I am so glad Lee and Alexia got their turn in the spotlight.

ARC received from publisher in exchange for an honest review.
