Volatile Breath of Darkness by Candice Stauffer
Breath of Darkness Series Book 5
Nikolas Drake has lived a very long time. He has become bored and hardened in his ten thousand years. And then he found her, his mate. He would watch over her and care for her but only from a distance. He was too old and powerful, not to mention extremely stubborn, to change. And now when maybe he is having a change of might be too late.

Brianna Larkin has loved Nikolas from the start. When she merges with h

This story is about Nikolas Drake, a demon, and is so in love with Brianna Larkin. He fights his love for her because he's so afraid of hurting her since she's a human. Brianna loves Nikolas too and she gets angry with him because he keeps procrastinating. Will these two ever get together as they should be? There were times I wanted to smack Nikolas on the side of his head to wake him up!!

We have some old friends from previous books in this story too. We have Joseph and Mia (just love the way th

Enjoyed this story. Have been waiting for Nicholas and Brianna's story. A lot of twist's and turns, as well as background for why Demetri has acted like such a bastard in the previous books. Also wasn't sure of a happy ending or not, right up to the end. I like a story like that, the worst is reading a book where you know to soon whether the character's will end up together or not. All good romance's have meet, fall for each other, and then mistrust and betrayal until the end when love triumphs. ...more

This is Nikolas’s and Brianna’s Story. Brianna is Nikolas’s chosen mate. She is beyond frustrated that he does not want to claim her/ take her. This story takes us on One hell of a roller coaster ride. But like all the books before it and seeing how I love my DRAGON shifters this one ROCKS as well.

Will Nikolas finally let go of

This is sort of a review of the series so far so sorry if I break protocols.

Volatile Breath of Darkness is the fifth book I have read in this series. While the idea of the series is good I am having a great deal of difficulty with Candice Stauffer's writing style. At times she writes like English is not her first language: she leaves out the words "of" and "a" and she uses awkward phrasing that would benefit from the use of commas or semi-colons or even just re-wording. She also has a whole lot

Ok. This book was fantastic. I cried a few times. We have seen this relationship between Nikolas and Brianna unfold for three years. I'm still mad at Nikolas for all the pain he has put Brianna through just because he's scared of himself. What sn idiot male! He really and truly almost looses her in the end because of his hard headedness! They're together now, but I hope Brianna makes him sorry for all he did. For at least a few centuries. I'm hopping up and down waiting on the next book in this ...more

I have so many unanswered questions at the end of this book, it is driving me crazy to have to wait for the next installment. I thought more would be resolved but not yet. As the song goes "You just keep me hangin' on". The excerpts from the next 2 books have only made it worse. This is an awesome series!!!

Nicolas just keeps pushing Brianna away, thinks he's doing it to help her and keep her safe , she could have a better life without him.when a serial killer kidnaps her, he does everything in his power to find her before she slips away from him forever , he needs to prove they belong together to keep her .Loved it, another great part of the series by Candice Stauffer.

I live in Zeeland, Michigan, where half the year is winter and the other, much shorter half, is summer. It’s a wonderful place to live as long as you own a four-wheel drive vehicle and happen to get a kick out of measuring the snowfall in feet rather than inches.

I write paranormal romance because I love to explore and manipulate the limitless possibilities of the genre. To be completely honest, I’
