What a Pleasure this book is....curl up -get comfortable and enjoy..excellent story and characters with NONE- YES NONE (YEA) of the totally un-necessary voyeur graphic Sex that can only be described as Porno that is sooooo prevalent in romance books today..... This only adds to the ambience without the descriptive specifics even my hubby would blush at!....This is not to say there are no romantic interludes- there are- just the right amount- NOT pornographic!!!.

Format: Paperback
On the planet Da'tarn the illegal crystal asberylite, banned in much of the Alliance because of its addicting lethal quality, was found by the miners. Pirates led by Synika raided the planet and took much of the ore for its value to put the holder in a sexual daze. They killed many of the planet's inhabitants and took others to sell as slaves. For five months, Mona de'Lacy and her crew aboard the ship the Solitaire have been chasing the pirates because they killed her husband and son.

Needing repairs, the Solitaire is forced to land on Valtar, a planet inhabited by a winged vampire like race who need blood to survive. Their leader Lord Zurellius takes one look at her and knows she is his soul mate. He intends to go with her to find the pirates because they took his brother and his wife and he intends to rescue them. Zurellius is no ordinary Valtarian because he drinks predator blood which gives him extraordinary powers but also turns him into an ancient who has killing rages that he has under tight control for the moment. He fears he will one day lose control making him wonder if Mona is better off without him.

L.F. Hampton has written a fantastic futuristic romance involving a species that has vampiric like powers. The hero is afraid of what he has become since he drank predator blood but by doing what is forbidden, he turns into an excellent ruler who brought his people back from the edge of extinction. The heroine sees him when he turns yet though the changes shock her, it doesn't destroy what she feels for him. In between chasing space pirates, this couple finds the time to bond for a lifetime.

Winged Darkness picks up seven years after the first book, Winged Victory, the Valtar world is now closed completely to outsiders. With her ship is in distress, Mona makes a forbidden emergency landing and seeks the help of the Valtaire ruler, Zurellious, hoping that since the reason her ship is damaged and the cargo that she carries both have a personal connection to Zurellious, she will be able to obtain his help. And Mona ends up getting way more than she bargained for in the fierce, winged, blood drinking Zurellious.

After being quite taken with its predecessor Winged Victory, I just had to read the sequel, Winged Darkness. I enjoyed the story with its darker hero Zurellius, who is solitary,and glorius with a barely leashed hidden predatory nature. His 'alien' heroine Mona - whom he calls 'hawk' - as a 'warrior' herself, is well suited to Zurellius. However, as a heroine Mona suffers a bit in that her focus is so bent on gaining revenge for the deaths of many people on her home colony world, including her husband and young son, that she does things which are really stupid - something that always bugs me in a heroine. This and the fact that the results of the big discovery in the previous book undoes some of the world building related to Zurellius' people, the Valtaire, that grabbed me in the first book - such a huge cultural shift in a mere seven years, when there are still way more males than females didn't feel quite right to me - meant that Winged Darkness didn't knock Winged Victory out of its spot as my favorite book in the series. (Also as a FYI, in Winged Darkness, author Hampton ups the sensuality of the romance a couple of notches from mild to moderate.
