When will Gena stop?! SEDUCE THE DARKNESS was mind-blowingly-awesome. I love the ALIEN HUNTRESS series, I've read the first three books but never got around to read the other three and now I'm wondering why? Seriously? This book was everything I love and Gena is such an amazing writer, her characters, her descriptions, her books are never boring and this one was hot! Yes yes yes, Gena I love you!

Devyn is the King of the Targons, he sometimes works with AIR (alien investigation and removal) and h

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! What can I say! I love Devyn's character. He's sexy, he's sweet, he's funny, he's hot, he's self-centered, and he thinks he's God's gift to women... And I've been waiting for his book since he showed up in this series in book 2.

I really enjoyed this story, so far my favorite in the series, but they get better with each book. I definetely recommend the Alien Huntress series to everyone. The alien angle is done perfectly, and it's a

Seduce The Darkness is book 4 in the Alien Huntress series. This time we get to see what makes the flirtatious AIR agent, Devyn, tick. I haven't read all the books in the series, but I did read the last one, Savor Me Slowly, so I'm pretty up to speed on the world. I think they stand on their own pretty well, but you'll probably enjoy it more if you have the back story.

Bride McKells has been a vampire for many years. She's never met any of her kind and lives in fear of being hunted for what she

SEDUCE THE DARKNESS is my favorite in Gena Showalter's Alien Huntress series! And it's mostly do in part to the hero,Devyn. He's a total man whore and full of himself. Devyn is both sexy and fun. He had a repressived childhood, where sex and the body was thought of as dirty and vile. But Devyn has escaped that life and he is making up for lost time with the ladies. He loves to "collect" women of different species and has a rule to not screw the same species

Loved this couple! Decadent Devyn of Targonia was as delightful during his star turn as he has been in his previous supporting roles as he manipulates Bride McKells to do his lascivious bidding in exchange for information. Bride, who's earliest memory is of her draining a good Samaritan in a dirty New Chicago alley is desperate for that information. She wants and needs to find out about vampires since all she has learned about vampirism has been learned from paranormal romance

Abandoned as a child, Bride McKell has survived on Earth by using her wits. As a vampire, Bride needs blood to survive and is desperate to learn more about her race. When she encounters Devyn, King of the Targons, he promises to be both a source of information and irritation. Devyn, a notorious womanizer, is used to getting his own way with the fairer sex, but Bride pushes every button he never knew he even had. As Devyn and Bride grow closer, a

Having just made a very bad review.... about an author I absolutely loved, and how I found myself wanting to read this book again due to the similarities in characters.... I found myself enjoying this a million times more. This is by far my favourite of the Alien Huntress books (my second favourite is the first one of course) and I enjoyed EVERY SINGLE BLOODY THING ABOUT IT!

We have the playboy hero with a cheery attitude but a dark past that has made him vow against marriage (again). Then we al

Devyn, King of the Targons, is a worthy fighter and has a sexual appetite like none other. After one encounter with a woman, he is done and moves on to the next. None resist his charm, except for Bride. Bride is a vampire in search of her lost friend and information about her kind. Devyn has the answers she needs and he will use it as leverage to get what he desires. Bride.

When you first meet Devyn in Enslave Me Sweetly, he comes of as a womanizing, conceded man who will do anything to

Good read, action paranormal plot with a futuristic setting. I haven't read the earlier books so I can't vouch for them or whether reading order is important. I can say that although there were interesting references to past storylines - the author provided what you really needed to know to navigate this one. The hero is Devyn, an agent for Alien Investigation and Removal, with a slick beauty, powerful skills, a voracious appetite for women and a very narcissistic personality. At first you figur ...more

What did I think? TRIPLE WOW!!!

I've never really taken to Devyn, he is so egotistical and there is nothing in the universe that will change that fact - not even Bride!!! - However, and it is a HUGE HOWEVER, Devyn grew on me at an incredible speed, I was loving him before I even knew it, I fell for both him and his ego!!! .... and so did Bride...

Bride is looking for her friend that she lost a number of years back and she believes she is the only vampire in existence, well let's face it, vampires

WoW! Okay Devyn and Bride are a cute couple. How Gena was able to make Devyn the "S*** that they know all over the Galaxy" but still redeemable and worthy of love, I have no clue, but she pulled it off. LOL.

Once again the action was great, the exchanges between Devyn and Bride, heck Devyn's exchanges with everyone was hilarious! But with he and Bride they were hilarious and oh so sexy. Another great chapter in this series. I love how someone as jaded as Devyn and self serving, was able to find

This is a love story. The serial playboy, Devyn, has finally met his match. Her name is Bride and she's a vampire. though she knows hardly anything about being one of the species.
The meeting was an accident? or maybe the fates knew that these two needed to be together in order to ensure Bride's survival. Devyn is Bride's life blood and soon her heart will follow in that same direction. Devyn will give it all for her, blood, trust, faith and even brave what might be the depths of hell as he know

Enjoyable sci-fi romance with some truly memorable laugh-out-loud moments, primarily brought on by the super-sized egos of the Hero, Devyn King of the Targons, and the heroine Bride McKells, a vampire orphan living unrecognized amongst humans. Devyn is, admittedly, a man-ho whose arrogance is approximately the size of Texas, but his sense of humor is also super-sized, which makes him likeable as a romantic lead. Bride is a good match for him, and the sizzle and banter between the two of them as ...more

I think I've found my new go-to author for whenever I'm in the mood for a great, fun, and sexy story! As far as romances go, it has none of that typical, melodramatic feel. It's cheeky, over-the-top, and heavy on the sexy - in all of the best ways. Gena's sense of humor is great and it definitely adds something special to the interactions of the hero, Devyn, and heroine, Bride.

At the beginning, Devyn is a whore of a man with an oversize ego and sense of entitlement when it comes to women and sex

For it's smut genre, I thought it was pretty creative with incorporating vampires and aliens into the same plot. The premise of the story was nicely done, you have the "tortured" prince and a vampire who suffers from amnesia. 2 troubled people slam into each other, and everything they least expect seems to happen to them. Devyn reminded me of Barney from 'How I met your mother' series only in the sense that they are both egotistical playboys. Unfortunately he did not come with Barney's sense of ...more

This is the fourth book in the Alien Huntress series by Gena Showalter. While I thought the first two books in this series were okay; I really didn't like the third book all that much. Unfortunately this book followed the third book as far as how much I liked it. I did really like her first book in the Extraordinary girl series "Playing with Fire".

Seduce the Darkness is book number four in Gena Showalter’s Alien Huntress series. I really have enjoyed almost everything Gena has ever written. Her books are like candy. They are filled with such wonderful goodness. You have to love a hero who basks in his greatness and wants everyone to know it. Devyn, the king of the Targons is such a hero who should disgust readers. He is proud that he can make any woman sleep with him. He is the ultimate horn dog, or a big man whore. But Gena has written h ...more

Comecei a pouco tempo a ler esta nova série da Gena e embora não possa afirmar que goste tanto desta como dos LOTU's os livros dela tem sempre algo de especial.

Desde que o Devyn apareceu que tenho imensa curiosidade sobre ele, e acho que não podiam ter arranjado melhor par que a Bride. Adorei vê-los juntos e as cenas de "batalha" entre eles são hilariantes.
Continuo com imensa curiosidade sobre o Dallas, aliás cada vez mais e agora sobre o Nolan e a rainha dele também.

I love Gena's Alien Huntress series, and have devoured all of them (still anxiously awaiting Dallas's story)
Seduce the Darkness is my absolute favorite out of the 6 books that have been released thus far. I'm not quite sure what it is about that makes it stand out for me. But I am fairly certain it has something to do with Devyn. He is extremely cocky, but in such a way that is so extremely entertaining that it makes it impossible not to love him (while secretly waiting for the woman to come alo

The story was freaking fabulous. I love Devyn, Dallas, Mia, Eden, Hector, Mischa, the whole gang. I don't understand why this series is not going to be continued. Bride, Hector, and Macy are a great addition to the series. I felt the love between Devyn and Bride. I like that Vamps were added. My gosh, why can't Showalter get another publisher? This is disgraceful. I need more of this series. Great storyline. I definitely recommend, but only if you can grasp the idea that after # 6, there will be ...more

I just finished reintroducing myself to the Alien Huntress series, and it was refreshing. For some reason, I had stopped following this particular Gena Showalter series. I have no idea why. I love Gena Showalter's style of writing and there were several moments where my heart experienced real angst for the h/H. Devyn and Bride's story, while set in a futuristic and alternative world, was believable. Their reactions to each other and from their past experiences were re

Beautiful Bride McKells is a vampire. She has no memory of her early childhood and the only reason they know her name is the brand/tattoo on her wrist, and that she had been found and placed in several foster homes run by abusive people. The day one pervert parent tried to rape her was the day she knew she was a vampire, because her fangs dropped down and she latched on and drained the perv dry. Which put her on the run and she found what was to be her best friend: Aleaha. When scrounging for fo ...more

I was surprised by how much I liked this book. I read the first story or prequel to the Alien Huntress series a long time ago and didn't like that one at all, but for some reason, I had this book on my To Read shelf, so I gave it a try. The premise of the series is that aliens of all sorts came to Earth, there were lots of wars, and now they coexist in an uneasy truce, though Earth's resources were significantly depleted or harmed during the war.

Several times I almost threw this book across the room. Devyn, aka, controlling asshole, pissed me off very frequently for about the first half of the book. However, his character grew emotionally throughout the book and his eyes were opened. I loved Bride. I enjoy Showalter's LOTU series too, but like this one better. Too bad she writes more of the other one. I like this world and the different species.

Devyn, King of the Targons, has had a lifelong goal to sample a female from every race and breed of alien and human. When he meets Bride McKells, he's not terribly interested, since he's already had a vampire, but as it turns out, he just can't get her out of his mind.
Vampires are an interesting addition to Showalter's Alien Huntress series. She weaves them in nearly seamlessly, implying they are another race of alien, just one who's been here on earth much longer than the more recent alien imm

Aliens had never been this hot.

I ordered this book and two others from the Alien Huntress series on a whim, after reading The Darkest Touch and wanting more of Gena's characters. Nobody does PNR like Gena.

The hero, Devyn, was a man-whore. He was also egotistical and narcissistic, sleeping his way through every race of women out there. Rarely did women tell him no. Actually, there have been just a select few from AIR. Until he comes across Bride. Better said, until she slams into him.

He made a perfect match for Bride, looking forward to the next book! I admit I already have a little crush on McKells.
