About the Author

Lynn Rush holds a psychology degree from Southwest Minnesota State University and a master's degree in Mental Health Therapy from the University of Iowa. Her experience as a former Addictions Therapist and competitive athlete lends to stories about complex heroines and the men who dare to love them.
Growing up in the land of 10,000 lakes and cold, snowy winters, Lynn has been known to weave a little of that cool Minnesota climate into her stories, but these days, she much prefers desert living. She resides in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband, and when she's not busy writing her next trilogy, she can be found pounding the pavement, training for her next endurance event.

More About the Author

Driven to write, Lynn Rush often sees her characters by closing her eyes watching their story unfold in her mind.

All of Rush's books are dedicated to Lynn, her namesake.

Rush holds a degree in psychology from Southwest Minnesota State University and a master's degree from the University of Iowa. Originally from Minneapolis, Rush currently enjoys living in the Arizona sunshine by road biking nearly 100 miles per week with her husband of 16 years and jogging with her two loveable Shetland Sheep dogs.

Violet Midnight is the start to a really cool new series. I was a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in high school so as soon as the book jumps right into a scene where the main character calls a cross bow out of thin air and kills a vampire, I knew I would like this book.

Emma is freakin' awesome. She is a hunter, although since she is one of a kind I don't really know how everyone knows to call her the hunter, but the name isn't really too important. What is important is that she kicks butt! Although I would hate not sleeping or eating or drinking. I love food! (I would probably get way more done if I didn't have to sleep though) When Emma met Jake, I could feel the connection the two of them shared. It was so cool to watch them try and uncover the mystery surrounding them. Jake is pretty cool too. He really is a sweet heart. I knew right away that he was not like Emma, but I loved watching the story unfold the way it did. And their connection never wavered- that was what I liked the most about Violet Midnight.

Violet Midnight is an interesting take on vampires. I was riveted. The book is pretty brisk. The action just keeps moving alone. There are no dull moments or lags in the storyline. It took awhile before we got any sort of real answers but it was so worth it. The plot just kept building and building until there was an epic ending! I loved Violet Midnight and I can't wait to read the second book. I am a little curious as to the direction that it is going to take. I'm excited to find out!

*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review.

A kickass heroine and a swoonworthy hero fighting evil Vamps on their college campus...who could ask for more? :D Finished this in 24 hours and just couldn't put it down. The juxtaposition between paranormal elements and the normal college experience I had never seen done like this before and Lynn Rush does it so well. Such a breath of fresh air to the new adult category. Move over contemporary because speculative new adult fiction is here to stay! And good lord the steamy steam between Emma and Jake. So hot and heavy. Bring your fans because this one is scorching! Can't wait for the sequel to learn more about this sexy Vamp hunting duo!

Format: Paperback
Violet Midnight is full of mystery and high anticipation. We are introduced to Emma who knows she isn't like others. Having went through some serious changes after a family accident, she has never been the same. The tattoo on her wrist proves this. Furthermore, the glow that comes from it when certain people are around has alerted her that there are other beings beyond human.

Emma knows nobody else like her. She has learned not to get close to others, fearing that they will find out about her. But when a public vampire attack takes place, Emma learns that she isn't alone. Jake claims to be just like her. Having a mysterious glowing tattoo and all to prove it, they decide to work together, with a beautiful relationship that we get to see form between the two.

The story behind Jake's past is a bit different, and when people start to resurface claiming things he never thought true, he learns that he needs to reevaluate things. His life in particular and his relationship with Emma. When you are told that you have no choice in a matter, do you just go along with it, or fight for what you believe in? Jake has some hard decisions to make, and he must make them fast.

Format: Paperback
Lynn Rush has a new series about young vampire hunters that grabs your attention from the opening scene and refuses to let go. The action scenes are intense, the heroine is strong and capable, the romance scenes sizzle and none of the vampires sparkle.

This "new adult" book is set on a college campus, but the main characters are all over 21. Vampire Hunter Emma Martin lost her parents in a car crash that left her "marked" with a mysterious tattoo that glows whenever there are vampires (she calls them "vamps") nearby. After losing her mentor to a vamp attack, she swears she'll never let anyone get too close. Until she meets Jake Cunningham, and starts dreaming of the possibility of something resembling a "normal" life.

Jake also lost his parents and grew up in foster homes, and has glowing tattoos of his own that are different but seemingly complementary to Emma's. The attraction between the pair is immediate and crackles with energy and tension as they train together and fight vamps together... and share steamy, Kindle-melting kisses. But everything is not as it seems on the idyllic rural campus, and hard choices face both Emma and Jake as they meet his real family and discover the true meaning behind his marks.

Ms. Rush has a clean, clear writing style that keeps the reader turning page after page until well past bedtime. I love that Emma is strong-willed and capable of defending not only herself but those she cares for and everyone else around her. Move over Buffy, this new young vampire hunter deserves a lot of attention! I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series - hurry up and write more!
