About this author

As a child, Lara Adrian used to sleep with the covers up around her neck, afraid she might become the midnight prey of deadly vampires. Later on, under the influence of Bram Stoker and Anne Rice, she had to wonder if her fear wasn't actually something else: a secret desire to walk in a darker world, to live a dangerous and sensual dream with a man of seductive, preternatural power. It is that twining of fear and desire that fuels Lara's own fantasies today, and the idea that she explores in her New York Times bestselling Midnight Breed series of vampire romance novels from Bantam Dell Books.

With an ancestry stretching back to the Mayflower and the court of King Henry VIII, Lara Adrian lives with her husband in coastal New England, surrounde...more

Lara Adrian Help for a GoodReads newbie, please? Can anyone tell me how to add the "Become a fan" button to my author profile . . . or is it already there, but invisible to me when I'm logged in? Clueless here! Thanks for any and all tips.

JoAnne Kenrick Hi, Lara thanks so much for the friending. I adore the Midnight Breed books...I literally only just finished 'Taken By Midnight', and already I'm impatiently waiting for the next installment -- I hope they'll be plenty more Breed books in the future!

message 4: by Lara

Lara Adrian Hi, Petra! Thank you for the lovely comments. I'm thrilled that you're enjoying my books--in audio, as well as written word. :) I had the pleasure of spending a little time with Simon Jaeger this summer while I was in Germany on book tour, and he was very nice and really funny in person. Plus, he's got such a great voice, I could listen to him all day! *g*

message 3: by Lara

Lara Adrian Hi, Annie! Thanks so much for the kind words about my books. I'm glad you're enjoying them! :)

message 2: by Petra

Petra Thanks for accepting my request! I'm a fan of the Midnight Breed series. I've read them all in English and German. Usually things get lost in translation, but that's not the case with your books. I wasn't a big fan of audiobooks until I heard Simon Jäger narrate your series and realized how good they could be. Looking forward to your next books :-)

Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Thanks for adding me, Lara! I absolutely love your books! Can't wait for the next release! :)
