The war between otherworlders and humans changed Earth beyond recognition. It also saved Bride McKells's life. Before, the gorgeous vampire was a target for every fanatic with a stake and a crucifix. Now, she's free to roam the streets -- and desperate to find others of her kind. One man claims to have the answers she seeks. Devyn, King of the Targons, is a warrior and a womanizer, and he makes no secret of how much he wants Bride -- and how dangerous he could be to her in every way.

An avid collector of women, Devyn easily seduces human and otherworlder alike. Until now. Not only does Bride resist him, but she leaves Devyn feeling something entirely new...a bone-deep need bordering on obsession. Her blood is the key to curing a vicious alien disease, but helping Bride uncover her origins will compel her to choose between electrifying passion and a destiny that could tear her from Devyn's side forever.

SEDUCE THE DARKNESS is my favorite in Gena Showalter’s Alien Huntress series! And it’s mostly do in part to the hero, Devyn. He’s a total man whore and full of himself. Devyn is both sexy and fun. He had a repressived childhood, where sex and the body was thought of as dirty and vile. But Devyn has escaped that life and he is making up for lost time with the ladies. He loves to “collect” women of different species and has a rule to not screw the same species twice. Until he meets Bride.

Bride is a vampire living alone and in hiding. She’s lived long enough to know that she can’t let people know what she is are they would hunt and kill her. Bride has never met another vampire and knows little to nothing about them. Then she meets Devyn.

Devyn is intrigued by Bride. She’s sexy and his charms and looks has no hold on her. Even though he’s already bedded vampire he can’t stop thinking about Bride. She has him feeling things he has never felt before.

Bride and Devyn use each other to get things they want and they find themselves falling hard for each other. Their journey to a HEA is sexy and snarked filled. I loved every minute of it.

Justine Eyre does a fantastic job with the narration of the Alien Huntress series. She has a super sexy voice that works well with romance stories. She nails both the female and male voices. Eyre is outstanding with accents. Her voice for Devyn was soon worthy!

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. I’ve never tried Showalter’s Alien books. I’ve read all of the Lords of the Underworld books and enjoyed them (some more than others, but that is to be expected with a series that has 11 books in it). Maybe I’ll try this one someday.

    • I’ve tried the prequel and book 1 of the LotU series and didn’t like it as much as this series but that might be because of the narrator so I’ll try it again in ebook format someday.

      I really like Justine Eyre’s narration. I’ve listened to her do others books besides this series.

      I finished up the novella that’s labeled as #4.5 in this series yesterday but it really should be read before this one. My review on it will be post by the end of the month.
