4.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a Roller Coaster of a Read!, 16 Mar 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Night Play (Dark Hunter 8) (Paperback)
Night Play was my introduction to the Dark Hunter series. I loved it! The way the main characters interact. The way our beautifully masculine 'hero' Vane seems so vulnerable and confused about his feelings for Bride. And the sex! Whoa! Left me breathless. The feelings and emotions leading up to, and after, each scene - namely, a man (well, wolf in this case) taking pleasure in pleasing his lady - are extremely well written. Definitely my kind of read.

We also get introduced to some of the other characters we know will be in other DH novels, which makes us want to read more and connect the dots. And Acheron, the first of the Dark Hunters, features in all of them. Great marketing strategy. It must work as I've read most of them.

What endears me to this particular book is the fact that our heroine, Bride is a 'normal' woman. She's a size 18 (14/16 UK?)and curvy. She has a total lack of confidence in her appearance, especially as Taylor, her ex-boyfriend is so condescending of her. So she doesn't understand why this beautifully 'masculine man' (she thinks that a lot) finds her not only attractive, but beautiful. He doesn't understand her self deprecation as he adores her just as she is. He re-introduces her to her femininity in a really loving way. And I love the way he 'deals' with her ex...

Yes, I know it's a little bit cheesy, and there's a lot of our hero saying: "I'd rather cut my arm off/die than see you hurt" stuff, but the DH series are pure, unadulterated fantasy after all, and the ecapism is great, so Dammit! Why shouldn't the good guy fall in love with a good girl, make hot love to the good girl, vanquish the bad guys, make love to the good girl some more and dance the Macarena with a demon and a load of other Were-animals in a club? Bring it on!!!
