He's an immortal, herculean warrior. She's the love of his life, a mortal tragically killed in battle the night before their wedding. Centuries later ... could it be she's still alive?
When Roarke—a handsomely brooding, supernatural Cynn Cruor warrior—catches a glimpse of Deanna—a beautiful Scottish maiden he pledged his undying love to eons ago—he thinks he's lost his mind. Because, unlike him, she's human. He's a hybrid warrior—part human, part vampire, part werewolf, bred by an ancient alchemist to guard humans from the evil Scatha Crurors, a race of dangerous shape-shifters led by the maniacal Dac Valerian.
Roarke met Deanna over 500 years ago. The night they vowed their undying love to one another, Deanna was murdered by the Scatha Cruors. And Roarke swears he buried her himself. But when Deanna turns up in Dac Valerian's club, a shock ripples through him, leaving him both fiery hot and stone cold. Roarke needs to know why she’s hidden herself from him all these years.
And he needs to make her his again.
Knowing her secret can only destroy whatever feelings Roarke has left for her, Deanna remains silent...until a twist of fate forces her to reveal everything.
Both heartbroken, Roarke and Deanna have to work together if they are to find a way of ending Dac's vast power once and for all. But their unquenchable desire for one another cannot be suppressed.
Their passionate flame rekindled, can Roarke and Deanna destroy the vile Scatha Cruors, who tore them apart once before? Or will they be torn apart forever?
This second paranormal romance novel in the Cynn Cruors Bloodline series is the perfect read for lovers of werewolf/vampire romance and spicy, steamy erotica alike.

Totally agree that this was 150+/- pages of well written and engaging erotica with an intelligent and entertaining story that binds it all together in a nice package. One "complaint" I have with all fiction writers...I wish they would give readers a hint as to how to pronounce these often outrageous and extremely foreign names and places they create! ("Cynn Cruor" for example.) Reading would flow so much smoother if I wasn't constantly stumbling over the pronouncement of these words. My husband won't even attempt to read ANY of my fiction books for this very reason! Of course, his is only an excuse but is one I can understand and commiserate with. On a more positive note, I can appreciate the talent and effort expended in trying to make the "ride" as interesting and believable as possible for your readers. Thank you for sharing said talent and effort with me. I appreciate what it takes to put yourself out there. Kudos"!
Love Deanna’s and Roarke’s story! Get your tissues and prepare for the emotional rollercoaster ride. The history between these two is jaw dropping. Deanna and Roarke have mated, they belong to each other, forever and ever. But, is forever a myth? Roarke lost Deanna when the Scatha destroyed his fastean. She died. He buried her. She was lost forever. He was to live his immortal life alone. He sees her one night and thinks his mind is playing tricks on him. But little did he know that she is alive and has been looking for him. They are once again in each other’s life and sparks fly! And these scenes are hot, Hot, HOT! But the past and the future threaten to keep them apart. Dac Valerian is still at it as evil as ever trafficking women and children. Deanna has seen this first hand and she along with the Cynn Cruor go after him to stop him. This is a beautiful story of incredible heartbreak but also amazing love. He once thought he would remain adrift forever, but she was his anchor, his safe haven. She was his strength and the love his eternal soul had searched for. You can’t help but to feel the love and despair within this story. Roarke’s fastean brothers come together but then split again. There are so many other stories that are about to come to light. I’m loving the Cynn Cruor series!
"Forever at Midnight" is book 2 in the Cynn Cruor Series. This book picks up where book 1 "Rapture at Midnight" left off. Before reading book 1 of this series, I was not a fan of Vampire/Paranormal Romance. Isobelle Cate won me over with "Rapture at Midnight" and "Forever at Midnight" did not disappoint either. Both are well written & the story flows easily. I enjoyed the characters & story. Looking forward to read what happens next with the Cynn Cruor.
