Stroke of Midnight is novella number 15 in the 2015 1,001 Dark Nights line up as well as part of Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series, a series I have loved for years now. This novella from start to finish was a complete package of heat, emotion, and even some suspense. I loved it!
Seraphina and Jehan find themselves in quite an unwelcome predicament. The bond that has kept their two families from warring for the past few centuries is in danger of becoming no more and the only two people who can save it is them. Together. As in mated. Not something either one of them was interested in…ever. And yet here they were, stuck in this ridiculous hand fasting ceremony that is supposed to last eight long days. They figure it will be fine. They can spend the eight days on opposite ends of the villa they were sequestered to. There was only one problem: there was no way ignoring the spark of attraction they felt towards each other would be that easy. Of course fate would have a hand in pushing them together as well…
Whoa. Who would have thought that so much scorching heat and emotion could be poured into anything other than a full length book? I should have known better. I mean it IS Lara Adrian after all. She was able to out so much into these pages and I loved everything about Sera and Jehan’s meeting and mating. It started out with a slow burn and soon turned hot and heavy between them and oh my, it was positively delicious. As if that wasn’t enough tot love about these two, Ms. Adrian threw in some suspense and duplicity I never saw coming and it added a wonderful element to this story. Bonus? It only drew Sera and Jehan closer together which had me swooning!
The midnight Breed series is a series that continues to grow and evolve with each installment and never gets stale or old.

STROKE OF MIDNIGHT was a stroke of PNR genius! If you are looking for a GO-TO author in this genre, Lara Adrian is your woman! You CANNOT go wrong with the MIDNIGHT BREED series!

This amazing novella will give you a sexy, succulent taste of what this author is truly capable of. With an exotic backdrop, vivacious storyline, and gorgeous and intriguing characters Ms. Adrian gives us another winner in her next installment of this gigantic series! From the very first page, Adrian seizes her reader’s attention with both an intriguing mystery element and a passionate, sizzling romance. Adrian clutches her reader’s hearts while captivating them with an intense and exiting plot that will keep you guessing. Emotional, rich, and adventurous, this series and this author will immediately make their way to the top of your TBR lists!

I loved both Jehan and Seraphina. The sexual tension and the spark was instant, but they still fought the urge to do anything about it. They will do what is right by their family and their lineage because they are loyal to a fault, but it doesn’t mean they have to enjoy it. They will fight this pull. They will battle their fate. They will dispute their feelings. They will deny, deny, deny, until…they can’t anymore.

I couldn’t keep the smile off my face the entire time reading this. To travel back to this splendid world Lara has created, brings me such great joy and wonder. STROKE OF MIDNIGHT was a suspenseful and mesmerizing masterpiece. Hang on tight as Adrian dives back into the scorching hot, alluring world of the Breed. Full of action and passion, Lara Adrian is sure to make tons of new fans with this great installment of the series.

Oh how I love the world of the Midnight Breed. I have loved this series since book one (Kiss of Midnight). And with each book in this series I believe the stories get better and better.
I enjoyed this story very much. I love meeting Jehan, Savage & Trygg all from the Rome division of the Order (already looking forward to learning more about Savage & Trygg).
I really loved Jehan & Seraphina. I loved the tension, love the banter, loved the sandstorm and the results of said storm ;). I just loved this book.
As with all of Ms. Adrian’s stories I want more. I need more. I will have more. I really can’t wait to see what is next for this series.

(RabidReads.com)The Midnight Breed books have always been favorite reads for me. They are usually well written, with a great romance, and all the action one could ever want out of a book. Great back stories, as well as complex characters also characterize these reads. This is the second 1001 Dark Nights book by this author, and now I have read both. They are novellas and I am one the people that enjoys novella length books-usually. I did have some problems with this read.

Jehan is a member of the Order and spends his time searching for rogue vampires that are suffering from blood lust. It’s up to the Order, made up of vampire warriors, to keep the human population safe from the insanity that afflicts those with blood lust. He is stationed in Rome, but is originally from Morocco, where his family was once considered royalty, making Jehan a prince, albeit only if he lived back in ancient times. As the eldest son of his family, due to an ancient pact, he is supposed to mate with the eldest daughter of another prominent family, someone he has never met. Seraphina is an aide worker at refugee camps in the area. She doesn’t want to mate for eternity with someone she has never met anymore than Jehan does. However, both of them take one look at each other and there is a definite immediate attraction.

Since it is so short, I am not going to go any farther into the story. I liked the main characters, and as long as you don’t mind the inst-love element, then the romance was a good one. Very little of the Midnight Breed trademark action makes it into this read. A bit here and there, but nothing really intense. Instead, most of the book centers mostly on the romance, which wasn’t exactly what I am used to when reading one of these books.
