Publisher's Summary

With the acclaimed Midnight Breed series, New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian has written thrilling novels of electrifying romance and heart-pounding suspense - books in which humans and vampires live tenuously side by side. In Crave the Night, Adrian brings the Breed and its world to the brink of war, where even the deepest passion can shatter into violence.
Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order - an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires - Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan's hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire - a woman of wealth and high social standing who has long been promised to another Breed male, and who may also prove to be the key to rooting out Nathan's elusive quarry.
Jordana lives a life of glittering privilege as a member of a prominent Breed family in Boston. Surrounded by fine things and fawning admirers, Jordana wants for nothing - until she crosses paths with a dark, intense warrior from the Order and finds herself swept into an impulsive, sizzling kiss that neither of them will forget. As much as she tries to deny her deep feelings for Nathan, Jordana cannot resist the craving to be near him, to break through his forbidding walls and see the man he truly is. But getting close to Nathan will thrust Jordana into a treacherous new world, forcing her to risk all she has and all she knows about herself and her past. And loving this seductive man could be the most dangerous temptation of all.

great story, lousy performance

What did you like about this audiobook?

This is a great addition to the Midnight Breed series but the performance of the reader is so bad it's distracting. Fortunately I'd already read the book when I bought this.


How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

The eBooks continue to keep my interest in the series, the lacklustre performance of the reader of the audiobooks are a major turnoff however.


Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Lara Adrian writes in full flowing picturesque dialogue that draws the reader in - I've enjoyed all her books.


What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Awful, dreadful - so awful and dreadful it was just a major distraction to my enjoyment of this audiobook. The only positive thing I can say about Harriet Hubler's performance is that she enunciates well. Other than that, she sounds like she's about to fall to sleep either from boredom or a snoot full of pills. Her sleepy, slow style of reading makes both the heroes and heroines sound vapid, which is no mean feat when you consider the nature of the characters! These stores are written as fast paced action/erotic romances. Ms Hublers performance conveys everything BUT those qualities. In short, she ruins the creative works of Lara Adrian's writing. Please, please find someone else to read these works.


Do you have any additional comments?

I shan't bother to buy this series again in audiobook until a new performer is found.
