For Breed vampire Trygg, a menacing former assassin and the ultimate loner, duty is everything...until his solo mission to destroy a powerful enemy earns him an unwanted partner in the form of Tamisia, a beautiful, ice-hot immortal who ignites a flame in his cold heart, and his blood.
Banished from her Atlantean colony, disgraced immortal Tamisia longs for a chance to redeem herself and return home where she belongs. Her work at a Rome women's shelter has given Sia purpose, but when a break-in results in a brutal killing, her quest for answers puts her in the middle of the hunt for a dangerous enemy of the Order--and brings her up against one of the deadliest of their Breed warrior members, the Gen One vampire, Trygg.
A former Hunter enslaved to the commands of a madman, Trygg has devoted his life to the Order. Duty is his only master now, until an interfering beauty inserts herself into his investigation. The last thing Trygg wants is a partner in his mission, but Sia will not be denied--nor will the fierce desire she stokes in him. Soon the warrior who needs no one is craving the only woman he should not desire, unleashing a powerful hunger in his cold heart, and in his blood.

3 dull-ish stars for MIDNIGHT UNLEASHED.
After Tamisia is banished from Atlantas, she finds solace helping at a women's shelter in Rome, and that's where Trigg finds her. The Breed hunter isn't anything she expected, but it turns out he's everything Sia needs. Trigg reluctantly partners up with Sia to find a dangerous drug dealer, but he can't seem to keep his head on straight when she's around. When push comes to shove, can they both trust that their feelings for each other will help them survive?
MIDNIGHT UNLEASED is a novella in the Midnight Breed series, and also a stand-alone addition to the innovative and fun 1001 Dark Nights series featuring sensual and erotic stories by a variety of popular authors inspired by the classic The Arabian Nights tale.
I had a really tough time getting into this story, and I'm not sure why. The characters just didn't suck me in and I found myself unable to focus on the book and easily distracted. I've read several of the Midnight Breed novellas under the 1001 Dark Nights label, and despite having little love for paranormal reads, I did enjoy them. Sia's character had a lot of potential, but felt that her badassedness was stifled by Trigg and his shitty attitude. He was a terrible MC, and I just couldn't find any love for him in my book world. I have no doubt that fans of this series will adore MIDNIGHT UNLEASHED, but this one just wasn't for me.
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; past sexual assault; lots of violence and murder.
