A special hardcover edition of the second novel in the blockbuster Dark-Hunter#65533; series from #1 New York Times bestseller Sherrilyn Kenyon

As an ancient Celtic warrior, Talon made one giant mistake-- he killed the son of the war god Camulus. In anger and outrage, Camulus cursed him--Everyone Talon loved would die a horrible death in front of his eyes. But when Talon's clan slaughters his young sister while he watches, powerless to stop them, he sells his soul for vengeance against them. Two thousand years later in modern-day New Orleans, as part of the bargain he made, he's now an immortal protector who keeps mankind safe from the creatures who would prey on them. A life he's happy with until he meets Sunshine--an offbeat artist who reminds him what it's like to really live. Unfortunately for both of them, it's Mardi Gras, and New Orleans is teeming with a complex plot of ancient gods, including Camulus, who are now out to re-conquer the world. The gloves are off and it's time for a rematch with Talon out to save everyone, including the artist who makes him insane.

Good but, but to be honest, Sunshine raked my nerves from page 1!!! Talon, on the other hand was awesome. I enjoyed the story once I opted to let Sunshine's "personality" not rake me. I can't seem to get enough of Kenyon, but could sure do without another Sunshine. hahahaha

Book 3 (preceded by Night Pleasures & followed by Dance with the Devil) Story of Talon and Sunshine - this one was not as good as the first one, but still ok.

Once again a great Dark Hunter book. I enjoy reading about the charactors and the stories are well written and intrigueing.

What is the difference between porn and female erotic fantasy fiction? In female erotic fantasy fiction the characters have emotional investment in the sex they are having. In addition the men are deeply in love with their female partners. But as in porn, in female erotic fantasy fiction the sex is long, drawn out and, at times, physically impossible.

And that is essentially Night Embrace. We find out about Talon, the Celtic Dark-Hunter from previous instalments and his irresistible attraction to Sunshine, a half native artist who lives in New Orleans. The sad truth is they can't be together because Talon ticked off a Celtic God who then cursed him by killing everyone he ever loved.

Kenyon series is starting to get predictable. While her world building is quite interesting, you have to wonder how much longer Artemis is going to allow Dark Hunters to get their souls back, because she is losing them at a ridiculous rate. You can also see where she is laying the groundwork for several of the next series of romances in this book.

This is a toothache book. Good for when you need a light, quick read to pick you up. But like most literary junk food, too much of this is not good for ya.

Such a good book with an ending you won't see coming where talon and sunshine must rely on others for help and each other
It's filled with action and sexy guys all around
