The secondary characters in this book, Ulric's pack, really make the book.

Yes, I read the first book in the series, CATCHING MIDNIGHT, and loved it as I became acquainted with the race of Upyrs.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I can't believe I'm giving this book a five-star rating when I gave the predecessor only two stars, but Hunting Midnight, the follow-up to Catching Midnight, is a true phenomenal, spellbinding read. This novel picks up where Catching Midnight left off. Ulric, the leader of a pack of shape-shifting vampires known as "upyr," is heartbroken. Gillian, the love of his life and object of his fixation, has left him for a mortal. In order to keep his pain at bay, he has one-night stands with mortal women. But when a particular mortal woman named Juliana, desperate to escape from an arranged engagement, asks for help, his existence isn't the same. Juliana, wooed by Ulric's sensuality and charisma, wants to become upyr, but she does not know that Ulric does not possess the ability to convert her into one...

I love the combination of romance and erotica in this novel. It is far steamier than the first installment and it doesn't go on explaining the life of the upyrs like in the first part. Also, the characters are far better developed this time around. It was great to get reacquainted with some of the characters. All I knew about Ulric in Catching Midnight was that he was very possessive, but he is far more dimensional in Hunting. And he is one irresistible hero! I even found myself thinking that wolves, at least the ones in the novel, were sensual and erotic. Though I find it strange that in this series the characters are shape-shifting vampires. I always thought that in these sorts of books the characters are either vampires or shape shifters, not both. But I suppose that paranormal fiction writers are free to be as creative as they want to be. Anyway, I also loved the medieval setting. The aforementioned setting added a great deal of magic and darkness to the story. This is classic Emma Holly!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
They roamed the Scottish forests for centuries until 1370. Ulric, leader of the pack of upyr shapeshifters, is irate that the female he should be protecting, Gillian selected someone else to be her mate. Angry, Ulric leaves the safety of the forest and his pack to wander the streets of Bridesmere to see what the excitement of humans is to Gillian.
Juliana Batoc flees an arranged betrothal. Ulric sees her, but instead of his usual taste for human blood, he feels a need to keep her safe due to some weird attraction. He agrees to help her, but soon she knows his deepest secrets and demands he bring her over as he has done with her virginity. He wants nothing more, but first she must meet the pack who must accept her as one of them. Inside that Eden resides a new snake prepared to cause trouble for the pack through the human female.
Though very similar in tone to its predecessor CATCHING MIDNIGHT, fans of historical vampire romances will appreciate Emma Holly's paranormal tale. The strong couple and his pack make believers of the audience. The story line hooks the reader with its prime theme of acceptance of her by his kin though the intrigue of the troublemaker makes it a bit too easy to reject Juliana even if it adds suspense. Fans of fourteenth century paranormal tales will enjoy HUNTING MIDNIGHT.

This book has it all: adventure, romance, HOT love scenes, and great paranormal characters. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a wonderful paranormal romance. Before reading this book, I was in a "reading rut". I had a hard time finishing any book that I started until I found this one. It is going to stay with me for a long time and I can't wait to read more in this series!

I've been a fan of Emma Holly's from her Black Lace days, and this new series is no exception. I would probably rate the first "upyr" book, CATCHING MIDNIGHT, as a 3-4 star read, but this one is a solid 5! Very sexy, very intriguing, and slightly dangerous. I wish there were more medievals like this!

Setting - England, Bridesmere 1370 --- Enter the world of Emma Holly, an author that will spin you another tale of the Upyr - shape shifting immortals. Upyrs are generally content to stay hidden in their own woods - running in packs and feeding off of the animal inhabitants of the forest. Except, Ulric, leader of the pack, betrayed by his long time lover, has left the safety of the forest and now roams the streets of Bridesmere to see what humans have to offer. Would it be fate then that on these streets he would meet Juliana Buxton, the once dutiful daughter of a successful merchant? Fleeing from a betrothal with a much older and wealthier man, Juliana noticed the aura surrounding Ulric - which in it's own way was unusual for a human to see. Ulric who was in the process of `thralling' a crowd, as would a `pied piper', immediately sensed Juliana and the attraction would be mutual. Learning of her plight he agrees to assist her in an escape, mainly as a step in seducing her, but as the two travel across the land to his domain, Juliana on an erotic journey of her own in which there was no return, would be the one to enthrall Ulric who fought hard against feelings for any woman -- his feelings still raw from so recent a betrayal of the woman he had loved for so long.
In a word - WOW! This is Emma Holly who, in my mind, is rapidly becoming one of the most amazingly sensual erotic writers of the decade! Yes, I read the first book in the series, CATCHING MIDNIGHT, and loved it as I became acquainted with the race of Upyrs.
