Born and raised as an assassin in the notorious Hunter program, Breed vampire Cain has since put his specialized skills to use as a mercenary willing to clean up any problem for a price. Or so he thought. After a job in Las Vegas strains even his dubious code of honor, Cain pulls up stakes and lands in Miami for a much-needed break. All he wants is time away to clear his head and regroup, but then a beautiful young woman is nearly killed in front of his eyes and the ruthless former Hunter becomes the only thing standing between her and a sniper's bullet.
Marina Moretskova is no stranger to dangerous men. As the niece of a Russian organized crime boss, she's grown up around killers and criminals. But her uncle wants out now, and he's enlisted Marina's
help in buying his freedom by delivering valuable intel to a secret contact in exchange for protection. Not even Marina's bodyguards are aware of her mission, so when an attempt on her life is averted by a handsome, steely-eyed vampire, as grateful as she is for Cain's intervention, the last thing she needs is the shrewd Breed male nosing around for answers. Cain's cold, haunted gaze and merciless abilities attest to his brutal nature, yet the rough, solitary Hunter stirs a powerful longing in Marina--a darkly seductive hunger she can neither afford nor resist. With a target on her back and covert
enemies closing in from all sides, trust is a risk that can prove deadly . . . and the safest shelter she may find is in the arms of the most lethal man she'll ever know.
Marina is a beautiful woman, and she is in danger. The Russian mafia doesn’t forgive or forget, and Marina knows it. She wants to help her uncle out of that life, but to do so she needs help. She travels to the states in an attempt to exchange information that will guarantee her life and the life of her uncle safety and out of Russia.
But when it comes to the mafia, nobody is safe including Marina. Cain watches from his hotel room the beautiful woman swimming, but the last thing he thought he would witness was someone trying to kill her. As the crime unravels and Cain serves as a witness he can’t stop himself from reacting and taking action. And when he does, he knows there is no going back.
I thoroughly enjoyed this installment. The chemistry between Cain & Marina was explosive and flat out melting hot. Adrian always delivers great action and fun twists, and Hour of Darkness was no different. As these two characters navigate the dangerous and deceiving nature of the Russian mafia, their attraction keeps on pulling them closer and closer to the point of no return. As these characters witness first hand the deception and the deceit, they can’t help but count on one another to keep each other safe. As Marina uncovers the truth behind her uncle’s mafia dealings, Cain can’t help but slowly fall for Marina’s beauty and intelligence.
In an engaging and sensual way, Adrian brings these two characters together, their difference and complicated nature add to the story appeal. The balance between action and sensuality is what keeps me coming back to Lara Adrian books, she has mastered the ability to write stories with passion, action, and love. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for action, slow burn scenes and a fantastic love connection.
