I first picked up Lara Adrian as my friendly local librarian had bought the series in and had reserved them for me, thinking that I might like them, given that I like most paranormals. I tried out the series, and immediately saw a resemblance to the BDB series by JR Ward, but the characters seem more believeable (Noughties-living guys, but not freakishly huge like the BDB, believeable romances and some hot sex!!)and seem to move on quicker. So far, Midnight Rising has been my fave, as Rio is a tortured soul and Dylan helps him come back and believe in himself. I think that when eventually Tohrment's book comes out, it will not be dissimilar to this one. I strongly recommend reading the entire series, in the order published for continuity, and look forward to the Dec 08 release. Hey, amazon.co.uk., why don't you have it available to preorder yet?
