Summary from the publisher:

Enter the dark realm of Nocturna in Jeaniene Frost’s redhot tale, where blisteringly sexy Raphael dominates the demons of a lawless dimension and tries to help a beautiful young woman avenge her cousin’s disappearance.

My Musings:

Let’s get something straight before I even begin, I love Jeaniene Frost.  I think her Night Huntress, World Huntress, and Night Prince series are all fantastic.  If she writes it, I want to read it.

Night’s Darkest Embrace isn’t related to any of her previous series.  It has the same great writing and similar components but takes place in a completely different world.  This is a world filled with humans and different levels of demons.  There are ancient fallens as well as their descendants,  the pureblood demons.  Next in line are the partials, that’s what is created when humans and demons have children. Each level of demon hunts and feeds off the level of demon below them.  Demon stories are my favorite type of paranormal so I was thrilled to discover this world.

It took me a chapter or two to get a feel for the world but I liked it once I got into it.  The main characters are Rafael and Mara.  They have a similar feel to Frost’s more popular characters, Bones and Cat.  Rafael is the ruler of Nocturna. He is powerful, a bit scary, and a total mystery.  Mara is a partial who enters Nocturna to hunt down the pureblood who killed her partial-demon cousin.  Mara is a fighter and has a tendency to be reckless but is very likeable.

The build up to the romance between Mara and Rafael was great.  I could feel the chemistry between them.  Once they finally stopped fighting each other and gave into their desire, I liked them together.  Frost is known for great sex scenes and she didn’t disappoint with Rafael and Mara. 

Night’s Darkest Embrace is a 100 page novella. This world was a lot to take on in a novella.  I would have preferred a full length novel, but I was still happy with what I got.  It had the perfect balance of action and romance for me.  It’s a very good read and I recommend it to fans of paranormal romance.


Overall: 4 stars
Sensuality level:  3.5

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
