As part of the Dark-Hunter series, this one lives up to its expectations: the tortured hero, the woman who feels bad for him, people feeling sorry for themselves, and millions of characters that have you listing off names just to keep up. But somewhere in that, there's a story of Talon, an Celt who became a Dark-Hunter after his wife died giving birth to his stillborn son and his sister was killed before his eyes. Flash forward to the present and Talon is in New Orleans, eating beignets, drinking coffee, and doing the naked pretzel with any willing girl. Then he's hit by a Mardi Gras float and meets Sunshine Runningwolf, a painter who's brain scatters faster than kids on bath day. These two find mutual attraction, sleep together for a whole day, depart but come back together after... something happens. I don't know what, and that's pretty sad considering I soak things up like a sponge. There's some mention of the god Dionysus and some other Celtic god, Sunshine's the incarnation of Talon's long dead wife, more sex, Dark-Hunters picking on other Dark-Hunters... that's really it. If anything, I'd say read the books for Acheron and Nick, they make it worthwhile.

I really enjoyed her previous books (Fantasy Lover and Night Pleasures) so I practically tore this book from the shelves when it came out. But then I regained my control and decided to pay for it. The story goes that Talon, another cool Dark-Hunter, had everything he loved taken away from him. In return for vengeance, he sold his soul to the goddess Artemis and became an immortal, powerful being called a Dark-Hunter. Zoom to the present and you have evil brewing in New Orleans. He's there, living the 'high' life of a DH until he gets hit by a float and lands in the arms of Sunshine Runningwolf. Their relationship from then on seems purely based on lust. Sunshine's mindframe: 'He's so hot! He makes me scream after we make love. I know I love him.' Talon's minframe: 'She's beautiful and has a great body and I've never had so much sex before. I am so in love with her.' Okay, so that's all there really is between them, but all is forgiven because there's a great story behind them that I zip through pages. And the introduction of new characters who will have their own stories later on will guarantee to keep me reading. Especially Zarek and Acheron-- those two will definitely keep me glued to this series! I am especially fond of good ol' Ash-if only men like him really existed...

Night Embrace was another great addition to the Dark-Hunters series! Was there ever a doubt though? No way, this is DH that we're talking about here people! Talon and Sunshine have an instant chemistry that blazes but the roles are a bit reversed here, which when an author switches up the norm in romances is always a nice touch. Sunshine really stole the show in Night Embrace I thought; she was funny, quirky and a free spirit. I loved her attitude and sense of the world. She handled the warrior, Talon, well and they really made a most excellent match. Talon himself was definitely drool-worthy and even though he suffered a big loss I loved his fun attitude. He didn't see Sunshine as a complete ditz either for her forgetfulness and instead treasured her uniqueness. Night Embrace had plenty of action of course, a fast-paced plot and a nice little twist at the end. I can't wait to see what happens next in the world of the Dark Hunters!

Fantastic book. Read Fantasy Lover off the cuff, then Acheron which was fabulous - this one is part of the journey of Acheron and all the people he meets on the way. Love getting background to I book I stumble on even if its out of order. Now I want to read/hear all the stories. If you want a new twist to the vampire/werewolve thing (which I was not looking for - said it was aboutt he Gods that what grabbed my attention), this puts a new spin on that but also encompasses the Greek Gods, the Gods of Atlantis, even the old Celtic legends of Morrigan and Bran. Can't wait to read the other 15-18 books.

For better or worse, what I got wasn't at all what I expected after reading about this book here on bn. If I were more impatient the beginning may have soured me on the whole thing since there were so many characters mentioned that it made me regret having gotten it without realizing this was a part of a series. It doesn't stand alone as well as other series I've read. That being said a little less than a quarter of the way through I remembered why I was intrigued. It is plenty steamy and that fact somewhat made up for the underdeveloped secondary characters and the lack of depth in the relationship between Talon and Sunshine. It¿s just presumed that as long as their soul mates and have the hots for each other that tgeir relationship needs no further development. There were just too many characters to absorb for one book. I'd hope that the other books in the series expanded on the characters but I can't say I'm inspired to read any of them.

Reading this series back-to-back instead of waiting for the next release, you think to yourself "not another I-love-you-but-I'm-scarred-not-worthy-and-it-will-never-work-out type of theme" -- but then find yourself getting wrapped up in the story that you have to find out how it ends! It's nice to see main characters returning in the next book of the series instead of fading away as some series do - just wouldn't seem right without Acheron, Kyrian, Nick and Talon!
