Sneak Peek Saturday~ Veil of Midnight by Lara Adrian

Bound by blood, addicted to danger, they'll enter the darkest—and most erotic—place of all.

A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man—vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability—a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence—a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness…and pleasure beyond imagining.

A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed—and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata’s powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she’s forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata’s life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond—and a passion that could save or doom them both forever.…

Initially, I resisted reading Adrian's Midnight series because I am a die hard J.R. Ward fan and I'd heard that Midnight was just a sorry excuse for a knock-off. Then she changed her covers and I accidentally scooped one up one day while on a book binge and I've never looked back. Say what you will, but this series is fantastic and holds it own in the vampire world. So, here's an excerpt to get you started :)

 "Would you like to see what she can do?" 

Fabian's glittering gaze was answer enough. Lex led the way back into the lodge and found Mira creeping down the hallway toward her bedroom. He went up and grabbed her by the arm, wheeling her around to face the Darhaven leader. She whimpered a little at his rough handling, but Lex ignored the brat's complaining. He pulled off her veil and pushed her in front of Edgar Fabien. 

"Open your eyes," he demanded. When she didn't immediately comply, Lex persuaded her with  a rap of his knuckles against the back of her small blond head. "Open them, Mira." 

He knew she had because in the next moment, Edgar Fabien's expression went from one of moderate inquisitiveness to outright wonder and amazement. He stared, transfixed, his jaw slack. 

Then he smiled. A broad, awestruck grin. "My God," he breathed, unable to tear his gaze away from Mira's witchy eyes. 

"What do you see?" Lex asked. 

It took Fabien some time before he answered. "Is it...could this possibly be my future I am looking at? My destiny?"
