What do you do when you wake up to a whole new life…with dangerous urges you can’t control?

Medic Drake McKennan has never been good at following protocol, so she doesn't think twice about rendering emergency care when a teenager’s life is at stake—even if the young girl is in the throes of Were fever and any sane human should know better. It isn't the bright shining pain of the bite or even the wrenching agonies of the fever that convinces Drake everything in her life has changed. It's the way she feels about the blonde with the wolf-gold eyes who awakens a dark hunger she can’t control…and doesn’t want to. Sylvan, the Alpha of the Adirondack Timberwolf Pack, is the one female Drake can't have. And the only one she craves.

    Supernatural erotica

    Radclyffe, writing as L.L. Raand, enters the arena of supernatural fiction with a book that is full of dangerous creatures and heavy on eroticism.

    The Praetern species - Weres, Vampires, Mages, Fae and Psi - have revealed themselves to the human world and are now fighting for full recognition as citizens with their rights protected. The leader of the Praetern Coalition is Sylvan Mir, the Alpha of one of the largest packs in North America. Sylvan is beautiful, charismatic and dangerous. She will go to any extent to defend members of her pack, which is how she meets Dr. Drake McKennan. One of the younger pack members is attacked by renegade Weres and Drake tries to treat her in the hospital. Sylvan warns Drake to stay away from Were patients for her own safety, but inevitably Drake is bitten by one that she tries to help. As Drake is initiated into the pack, she presents a distraction for Sylvan and a threat. Sylvan has never mated because she has to focus all of her attention on protecting the pack and pushing through the laws that would protect the Praeterns. A mate would not only distract Sylvan from doing any of her jobs, but would also be a vulnerable point of attack. Drake wants Sylvan, but a relationship could cost them their lives.

    The Midnight Hunt deals with more than one subplot. Supernatural creatures are cast as another group that is fighting for civil rights and the reader can't help but draw analogies with the fight other groups have gone through. There is also the conflict within the Praetern community between those who want to fit into general society and those who don't see a need for that, also reminiscent of real groups. The focus of the book however is the interaction among the pack members, their hierarchy and casual attitudes about sex. This book may be presented as speculative fiction, but it's also a work of erotica, to the point of almost overdoing that aspect. Sometimes the characters are so focused on releasing sexual desires that the reader might wonder how they find the time to do other things.

    There is a good story at the center of this book and fans of supernatural fiction will probably find it particularly appealing. The explanation of Were society is interesting and the book works well as a set up for the later books in the series that the author promises. She may be writing under a different name, but it shows the solid writing for which Radclyffe is known.

    I loved it

    This is the first book in the Midnight Hunter series from Radclyffe (writing as L.L.Raand) and I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of my favorite authors has ventured into the paranormal genre. This book has the same smooth writing style and an fast pace that make for an enjoyable read. I eagerly await the next installment in the series.

    When I first read the synopsis, I was on the fence about it, but

    When I first read the synopsis, I was on the fence about it, but decided to give it a try for lack of lesbian paranormal romance. However, once I got into the story, I couldn't put it down and when I reached the end of the story, buying the sequel wasn't even a question. I had to have it.

    The Midnight Hunt

    If you love werewolves, love female protagonists, and enjoy reading love stories, then The Midnight Hunt by L.L. Raand is an excellent book. I couldn't put the book down! This book is the first in Midnight Hunters Series.

    This is L.L. Raand's first paranormal series and I think she did an excellent job. L.L. Raand is the pseudonym for bestselling romance author Radclyffe, who written over 30 lesbian romance novels.

    I love werewolf, vampire, or any paranormal type story. So, when I read the synopsis on this one, I had to get it and read it. I was skeptical because of the lesbian twist in the story. However, this was a beautiful love story between a human and a wolf Were, both Alphas by nature. Raand did a great job creating her paranormal world and all its characters.

    I suppose the one drawback in this book was the fact that these wolf Weres, as they are called in the story, seem to be in constant heat. They are constantly looking to have sex whenever they feel challenged or fight. Aggression triggers the desire to hump just about anybody. It suggests that being preternatural makes you sex starved. Although, I felt it might have been a bit too much, Raand takes the time to explain why this occurs with her Weres.

    As I said, this book has a lesbian twist to it, so if that bothers you, then don't read it. However, you'd be missing a very good story. I found as I finished this book, I wanted to continue the next book in the series.

    Loved it

    Really enjoyed this book. Couldn't put it down. The vampire/wolf idea is fantastic. I'm glad she did it. I've finished all 3 in the series and would love to know what happens next in their lives.
