I am more attracted to her than I should be, yet her loyalty lies with a man determined to bring about my destruction.

Though her stormy eyes tempt me, there is too much at stake—not merely my life, but the lives of my vampire Brotherhood. And I am not above using Vivian to achieve my goals, even if it means denying my own heart. The battle to end all battles is just beginning, and I must fight . . . if I could only let my desire be damned.”

Meet the Author

My husband says I have the best job in the world. The only thing that could top being paid to do what I love is if Avon Books decided that all their authors had to be hand-fed chocolate by Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, or John Cusack. But my husband probably wouldn't think so much of my job then, so instead I'll let him feed me chocolate and go on being forever thankful that I have the best job—and husband—in the world.

Chapter One

Somewhere in Europe, 1899

He should kill her. Whether or not he could wasn't the question that plagued him; it was why hadn't he done so already?

Lying on a narrow cot in a cool, dank cell, Temple listened to the footsteps on the floor above. Long, determined strides carried his visitor toward the door that led down into the cellar where they'd sequestered him for . . . he had no idea how long. He knew that stride almost as well as his own now. It came out of the fog they'd kept him in—the fog that had been steadily clearing for days, though he never once let on that their drugs no longer worked.

Yes, now that he had regained much of his strength, he was very tempted to kill his sweet-smelling captor.

He was tempted to do all kinds of things to her.

When they had first taken him, they used some kind of drug—a poison—on him. It deadened his nerves and rendered him unconscious. They kept him that way for much of the journey. And when they finally arrived at their destination—wherever the hell that was—they switched from their poison to opium, great amounts of it, given to him by the one person trusted to deal with him. The one person who his captors obviously believed could handle him if the need arose.

Vivian.

Her heartrate almost doubled whenever she came near him. Temple knew this because he could hear it. Lying on his bed, in his prison of silver, he could hear her approach and the muffled woomp-woomp-woomp beneath her ribs.

Being a vampire had its advantages, and one of them was knowing when a woman was sexually attracted to him. Vivian was. She also feared him with equal or superior passion. It wasn't personal. It was because he was a vampire. But regardless of how wary she was of him, that wasn't the sole reason her heart kicked up a fuss whenever she came near him. Thank God she couldn't hear how his heart reacted to her.

He could smell the delicate ginger-peach scent of her skin as she came down the cellar steps. He didn't put his bare feet on the floor—three days of painful, oozing blisters after he tried to escape the first time broke him of that. The floor had flecks of silver in the paint that burned his soles. And every hour another guard came and sprayed a fine mist of holy water through the bars—just in case blisters—and opium—proved not to be deterrent enough.

Still, even the thought of blisters wasn't enough to sour the sight of her. And his vision had cleared enough that he could fully appreciate her. Oh, he could kill her on the sheer premise that she was one of them, but there was no denying the woman was a ripe piece of heaven personified.

She had to be at least six feet tall. It was difficult to tell as he'd never had the honor of standing next to her. Clad as she was in a shirt, trousers, waistcoat, and boots, there was never any chance of her being mistaken for a man. Her thighs were far too shapely, her hips too round, her waist too small, and her breasts . . . Well they were abundant handfuls, and Temple had big hands.

And that was only the beginning of her charms: skin the color and smoothness of rich cream, cheeks and lips naturally burnished like a succulent peach. Her eyes were the same shade as a storm-swept sea—he'd always harbored affection for inclement weather. But it was her hair that drew the eye. Nature rarely bestowed a red so vibrant on any human head, nor gloss or thickness.

And she was strong too. Fast. More so than a woman should be. What other special abilities did she have that Villiers put her in charge of the big bad vampire?

She was a member of the Order of the Silver Palm, that much he had long ago deduced. The man she answered to—Rupert Villiers was obviously high in the organization's ranks, if not its heart and soul. Vivian hadn't been with them when a group of them found his lair in Cornwall, poisoned him and took him captive, but she had been a daily torment ever since with her sweet-smelling skin and flaming hair.

Yes, he should kill her. He could do it now. Draw strength from the vein in her long slender throat, and make his escape. He should.

He should.

"Are you awake?" she asked in an English accent as rich and crisp as a gingersnap.

Temple made a low groaning sound, slowly turning his head toward the cell door as he heard the key clank against it. He didn't open his eyes very far, so she couldn't see the clarity in his gaze and realize that his body had adapted to the opium—it was no more effective than a glass of wine now.

That Vivian and her boss didn't know that his body worked that well was an unexpected boon, because they obviously knew enough not to starve him and allow him to become feral.

A slippery bunch, this Order of the Silver Palm. They'd started growing in number the last ¬couple of decades, their interest in vampires—particularly Temple and his friends—increasing as well. He didn't know what they wanted from him, and his own curiosity had led to his being taken prisoner. He should have put up more of a fight, but he wanted to know what they were up to.

And he had grossly underestimated their abilities. He'd only killed a ¬couple of them before the others overpowered him with their poison.

"Dinner time," Vivian murmured as she closed the cell door behind her, pocketing the key. She was carrying a bottle of what had to be blood, and a washbasin. "Time for a bath as well."

    Six Star Rating - Love it love it LOVE it...

    I LOVED these books. I'm so happy to have stumbled upon this amazing series. It was so good that I finished all five books in a week. This last installment was my favorite of the five, though it was a close call since all the books are amazing. **Possible spoilers ahead** This last book is about Temple and Vivian. As mentioned in the previous novels, Temple is the considered as the leader of the Brotherhood of Blood, a group of warriors that was initially searching for the Holy Grail, but instead found and drank from Blood Grail which turned them into vampires. In this last installment all the brothers and their wives come together to help Temple stop the Order of the Silver Palm once and for all. This book contains the reunion of Saint and Marika, Marcus and his new lady friend (I'm so glad he found love, he's a feisty fellow) and best of all, the novel centers around the growing relationship between Temple and Vivian. Lots of twist, turns and tons of steamy sex (in the rain and in a hammock no less...WOW!!). The end of the book/series was fast paced and I was soooooo sad it had to end. I HIGHLY recommend this series.

    an exhilarating tale

    In 1899 Europe, Temple the vampire knows he must kill his six foot plus jailer, but something prevents him from harming Vivian though she is aligned with his enemies the Order of the Silver Palm and their leader Rupert Villiers. Still he tastes her blood that he covets, which stuns him giving him hope. When he asks her what she is, she flees hurt that he reminded her she is a freak. She loved his bite and fears she will betray Rupert. Temple realizes she treats the evil Rupert like a loving father and realizes his evil foe set a trap for his four vampiric friends. When he escapes, Rupert sends Vivian to follow him explaining he will flee to Clare Island, Ireland. Her task is to make the vampire believe she is his so that Rupert can catch all five of them.<BR/><BR/>On Clare Island, Temple waits for Vivian as he knows she pursues him. They fight and she does extremely well until he finally pins her. They make love and he takes her blood though he does not trust Vivian. He also knows Rupert lost his fiancée to a vampire twenty years ago, but believes his enemy wants much more than vengeance. Vivian explains Rupert rescued her from a freak show that her father sold her to; she is torn between loyalty to Rupert and love for Temple. <BR/><BR/>The latest Brotherhood of the Blood historical romantic fantasy (see NIGHT OF THE HUNTRESS, TAKEN BY THE NIGHT and LET THE NIGHT BEGIN) is an exhilarating tale starring a fabulous unique heroine. The relationship between the lead couple is terrific as they are attracted to one another and fall in love, but distrust one another while the ending contains a terrific final twist. Although the villain is brilliant yet is unable to accept his ward has changed sides in spite of the evidence and the five vampires fail to implement an obvious strategy, saga fans will want to read Kathryn Smith¿s exciting ¿Night¿ tale.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Night After Night after Night

    I loved this book. I could feel the bite on my neck. I have read many books and a wide selection of authors. Smith is a good write who makes you feel the scenes. I loved the story lines, history of characters, and pace in which the entire story moves. I could see her scenes in my mind like a movie and look forward to reading more of her work. I could not put the book down. I started with the first and continued thru the entire series with in 2wks I had them all read and looking for more like them.
    I was eager to keep the story going.........

    Disappointed

    After waiting quite awhile for this book to come out I was really expecting more after reading 3 other books in the series I was expecting more in this final book.

    Temple Personified

    Out of all the Brotherhood of Blood I still think Saint is my favorite. Temple is just as fiery and sexy though. I loved the book and wonder if there could possibly be more but with the ending to this I doubt it. I also felt the ending was too quick but besides that I really enjoyed the book. I will check back to see if another book will be released of this series, if not then I give the entire series a A-... Minus for not continuing these sexy hotties and also for the ending of Temple Book.

    night after night review

    i enjoyed this book and read it with eagerness to see how everything turned out. i couldn't have been more pleased with how kathryn smith delivered this book. all the characters were finally brought together and it was great to see how they all intereacted with eachother. And anyone who has already read these previous books couldn't wait to see the reunion of saint and merika! i don't want to give away the story, as no one likes being told all the juicy details of what happens in a book or movie they intend on reading. this book is worth the wait to read on your own without the spoilers coming from me. curl up with a nice blanket, cup of hot tea or coffee and endulge yourself for the next few hours reading this conclusion of 'the brotherhood of blood' series. you'll like temple and i'm sure you'll understand him as he was intended to be, a man, a lover, a fighter, a vampire, a leader.
