    IF YOU DON'T LIKE SEX, READ TEEN BOOKS!

    I haven't actually started this series but I have read Angela Knight before and love her books and plan to start this series now. But as I was looking through the reviews some people posted, I got quite annoyed. For those of you who don't like to read sex scenes whether they be soft and sweet or hard and crude, then read from the young adult/teen section!!! HELLO! It is the 21st century and you have picked up an ADULT book falling into the category of Paranormal ROMANCE!!! Obviously there is gonna be sex, get with it!!! Either quit reading the ADULT books, or get over it! It is unfair to the author, the book and future readers of said book for you to give it a poor review simply because you are prude and don't like to read sex scenes. I give Angela Knight two thumbs up. She is an amazing author!

    Great fantasy romance

    In Avalon, Reece Champion, the Champion of the United States since 1780 just as Arthur is to Britain, learns from Lancelot that a terrorist cult apparently is using a mage, but not one of there¿s or their rivals the Sidhe. Reece will work with the Feds, as he has done in the past, to uncover and stop the new threat............................... The Outfit assigns Agent Erin Grayson to seduce businessman Reece Champion; she thinks this assignment will enable her to obtain the revenge that obsesses her. They meet at a business gala and soon are kissing one another. As they fall in love, a powerful malevolent essence captures the duo. This being plans to use the pair as the keys to eradicate the mages and humanity. To defeat their deadly evil opponent, Erin must embrace the paranormal powers she has ignored all her life and use them in conjunction with Reece¿s vampiric skills or know she went to her death with the culpability of billions joining her............................................ MASTER OF THE NIGHT is a terrific paranormal romantic suspense thriller that never slows down until the final confrontation between good and evil. The action-packed story line moves at a fast clip, but the key to the tale is the believability of magic and other supernatural skills due to the cast, regardless of species and talent, seeming so real. Angela Knight is a rising star in the paranormal pantheon, whose backlist will be sought after this fine tale................................. Harriet Klausner

    Great Find!!!

    I found this series when I was reading Bite and couldn't wait to actually read a whole book from this author. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed when I read Master of the Moon (the second book in this series). Now that I've read the first book, I love this series even more. Sign me up for the next book right now... I can't get enough!

    Perfect!

    I loved Angela Knight's Master of the Night just as I have loved the other two I have read Master of the Moon and Jane's Warlord. I still haven't read The Forever Kiss but can assure you that after these it is worth looking forward to. Never have I enjoyed another author's books as much as hers. She makes me impaitient when ordering the next one but the wait is well worth it for such an author. I hope Angela Knight will write for years to come and bring forth more of the perfect romance novel writing I have come to expect from her. Readers have no reason to be dissapointed with her. I've read many romance author's books on the shelves, but Angela Knight will always take the top on my list. I will continue to reccommend her books to others with a love for intense sexual paranormal romance that she displays. Amazing Author!

    Amazingly HOT!!!

    After finishing this particular romance novel, all I could say was WOW!!! Superbly sensual and fantastic Master of the Night gives both vampires and Knights of the Round Table a whole new twist. This is a type of book to be read from cover to cover. This is definitely a keeper. Can't wait for other books in this series.

    Super new series

    Angela Knight shows her brilliance by combining the very hot vampire genre with Grail lore, and creates a very original concept. A concept that will put her on the bestsellers list! The first in the series, Master of the Night, we get a wonderful, fast pace tale that will have you hooked from the start. In September, smart people <winks> had a taste of the hot premise in Hot Blooded, an anthology (Knight, Christine Feehan, Emma Holly and Maggie Shayne), where Knight premiered her storyline with her tale 'Seduction's Gift'. In that novella, we learnt the 'rules' of Knight's new magical realm. Eschewing the Ann Rice's sexless bloodsucker and the promiscuous predator male who equates blood with good sex, Knight has struck out on her own - and conjured gold! Rice's writing while amazing, left me cold where romance was concerned. Her vamps were often Androgynous, if not gay or bisexual, so this limited the range of emotions provoked by her prose. On the other end of the pendulum - the Vampire as a strictly romance hero always presented me with troubles. Problems of disease aside, how could a woman love a man who must go around 'necking' with hundreds of dames to stay alive? This seems more a male oriented fantasy - the accepting of a hero 'sleeping around' on the heroine. Knight deftly handles both of these extremes, by promptly dismissing them, and travelling her own path. Vampires are not as we know them from Hollywood created lore. First off, they are male, never female. They can drink the blood of humans, but it's not the focus of their existence, not how they survive. Most would rather not. Where they get their true life giving essence is they must drink the blood of a Maja - a witch, and the Maja must have the vampire take the blood in order for her to survive. A true symbiotic relationship, which dismisses the disease question, bars the vampires 'forcing' his will on another, and removes the sexuality of the act out of the question - unless the vampire and witch just enjoy that, too. You see, Camelot was a myth. But not the myth as we know it. Merlin and Nimue were from a race of beings outside of Earth. They came as protectors to the fledging human race, and still exist in their own magical realm. There are actually three realms on earth, the realm of the Mageverse, the Sidhe and the mortal world. Mortals know nothing of the other two realms, though both often play roles in shaping the normal world. In the Mageverse, the vampires and witches are the ladies and knights of Camelot. They're sworn to be protectors of mortal man. From the children of moral man and woman, come the potential vampires and witches of future generations. They are called Latents. Not all mortals who are Latents can be turned. Many cannot handle being changed into an immortal, and all the powers that come with the change, and often can drive them mad. And change can only be accomplish by having a male vampire turn a female Latent, or the female Maja witch changes the male mortal, through the sexual act. Knight creates these original and imaginative perimeters for her series, and then sets back and has a great time. She is a bold, sexy writer that has a strong Southern (US) wit, and is THE writer to watch today. She is going places, and Master of the Night is the first sounding shot that this talent is here to stay. In Master of the Night, Vampire Knight Reece Champion, Knight defender of the USA, and also agent of the US government, senses the Latent Erin Grayson. Erin is on a mission to romance international businessman Reece Champion. She believes seducing the sexy Champion will put her closer to the revenge she is seeking against a murderous organisation. Only, what Erin does not comprehend, she is a pawn being used against Reece by the very people she is trying to stop. Sex with Erin is dangerous. She is a Latent. Three times of the 'big whammy' and he would turn her into a Maja. It's forbidden for any immortal to change a Latent, with

    It wasn't terrible

    The story was... meh. The characters were kind of blah. But the sex scenes were steamy and the world building was interesting enough that I'm going to give the second book a chance.

    A Must Read!

    I thought I knew what this book was going to be about but I had no clue. I am a major fan of fanasty romance and Angela Knight has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I could not put this book down I had the whole book read in two or three hours tops. A lot of author's have trouble mixing the love scenes with the rest of the story, but she had no problem. Each scene left you wanting more wishing she would have drug it out longer. This book has quickly became one of my favorites. I can't wait to read the next two in this series.

    Disappointing and crude...

    Very disappointing. I really wanted to enjoy this book, but couldn't. It had an interesting premise, but the sex scenes were ridiculous! No romance, just crude, vulgar language and scenes out of a bad porn movie. Very distracting and disappointing. Gave it two stars instead of one because the idea was good, just the execution sucked.

SHE TOOK ABIT FROM SHERRILYN KENYON, CHRISTNE FEEHAN AS WELL AS KAREN MARIE MONING. IF YOU WANT TO READ ANY GOOD BOOKS TRY ANY OF THE THREE I JUST MENTIONED BUT STAY AWAY FROM HER BECAUSE SHE STINKS.

    Loved It...

    The book I must admit was a little slow for me in the beginning but toward the middle it started to heat up. I liked that there was so much going on in the book. Angela Knight is a very good Author and she knows how to peak your interest. I was pleased with this book and I would recommend it to my friends..
