Centuries ago, this magnificent chalice sealed my fate as a vampire, and now I am its protector. Many have hunted me for it, but only Vivian has accomplished the task. Strong, lovely, haunted . . . I am more attracted to her than I should be, yet her loyalty lies with a man determined to bring about my destruction. But I am not so easily locked in a cage, and now the capti ...more

5 stars – Vampire/Historical Romance

The fifth and final book in Smith’s Brotherhood of the Blood vampire historical romance series doesn’t disappoint. The series has a unique take on vampire mythology, centering on six soldiers who became vampires by drinking from an ancient chalice infused with the essence of Lilith. Night After Night focuses mainly on vampire leader Temple’s relationship with feisty red-headed heroine Vivian, but it also reunites all the characters from the previous novels. Th

This series was the first I've read by Kathryn Smith and it has made me a fan. This last book pulls the 5 vampires together to take down the Silver Palm once and for all. It is Temple and Vivian's love story and it is HOT. KS tells a fantasy, action,hot sex, and tear jerking romance as good as any of my favorite authors.
I can't recommend these books enough, they will satisfy the most picky PNR reader!
I really love the epiloge when she lets you know how everyone is doing now and how their lives t

Great end to a great series! I loved it.

It was original, fun, and enjoyable. And the author saved her best to the last. This one held pleasant surprises, and the epilogue was so satisfying. Not all were 5 stars worthy, but you will not be disappointed! Loved it.

A satisfying end of a great series! I'm really glad Temple's story did not disappoint, especially after four wonderful books leading up to this final showdown. Temple is not what I expected. As a leader of the group, I expect him to be a real stick-in-the-mud but to me surprise, he's not. On the contrary, he's fun and sexy and a real charmer. And Vivian is not a bad character herself.
I finally picked up this last book in the five book Brotherhood of Blood series, featuring the vampire Temple and Vivian--the ward and protector of the Brotherhood's arch enemy Villiers of the Order of the Silver Palm. I started this series several years ago when I was a newcomer to reading romance. The series is a really great blend of paranormal and historical romance. The overarching series plot is well thought out and executed throughout the five books with a successful conclusion in this la ...more

The fifth and final book in the Brotherhood of the Blood series doesn't disappoint (only barely). This story is of Temple and Vivian in yet another captor and captive saga. The tension between the two is palpable from the beginning, and the couple don't make any qualms of getting it on early while the going's hot.

Temple has been captured by Rupert Villiers (a fine name for a villain, I say) and Vivian has been assigned to "take care" of Temple. Of course, she feels immediately drawn to his viva

OMGOODNESS!! I love love loved the way this series ended! It was awesome. Temple's story did not disappoint in the end or the middle. I must say though, from the beginning til about page 85 I was a bit worried. I felt that he and Vivian became involved physically, too quickly because there was really nothing there for me, that explained their "undeniable" pull to each other, other than the fact that you are being told that it's there by the author. But I kept reading because I was more intereste ...more

The series had potential and this vampire's story was long awaited. The book was a good read but as the final installment for the five original vamps, it is a let down. A couple of the books are good but not this one. If it was not the last one, it would have been for me. I don't like that the book ended in the present time without clearly demonstrating how the vamps worked together to vanquish their foes. I thought Ms. Smith did a great job describing the timeframe -- early 1900s or so, maybe e ...more

Good book but not sure I'd rush out to buy the others in this series. I liked Vivian and learning more about her as the story progressed. Temple is a vampire and a likable hero. I also enjoyed the ladies at the Garden Academy and how they befriended Vivian and made her feel welcome. However, I felt the ending was a little too easy but still entertaining.

This is the last book in the series around the 5 vampire friends who have to fight together against a big enemy. Slowly but steady you understand the different pieces of the books before. Unfortunately the end is very strange and corny. I don't like it to be honest. This could have been better. But ok. The story between Vivian and Temple was nice even a litte bit too much of romance and dramatic. Temple is a really interesting character you will like very much. Vivian is a interesting person eve ...more
Wants to have a short and easy read while having a bath - stays up till midnight to finish the book.

It is exactly what it promises to be. Sex scenes are surprisingly good. Historical accuracy ... well, not that important. story is quite entertaining :)

I so loved this series! Where I only gave some of the books 4 stars the series needs 5 stars. I love that there is a begin and an end the the story. There are only 5 books and I would have read more but I like that the story starts and it gives me closure! I loved each couple and I loved the story that was unfolding. I don't know which is in the back drop the story of the "silver palms" or the love stories. KS wrote the books so well that I can't tell nor do I care, it was so interesting. I foun ...more

This is the last installment in the Brotherhood of the Blood. I loved all the books in the series. The latest book is Temple's story. This series was originally recommended to me. From the first I was taken by the series, the time period and the history & myth of the vampires. I thought it was great that all 5 vampires came together finally. In every book you get the sense they are ever moving towards each other. This last book is a coming together, of vengeance and of course love. Although ...more

Like the other books from this series, this is a romance novel so I get why the author didn't pay that much attention to the action and tried to focus on the love story but, whilst in the other 4 novels she succeded in creating an entertaining romantic story (I had to overlook the fact that the type of women she chose are weak ones), in this one she saddly failed. While trying to overlook the mediocre sequence of events I wasn't terribly impressed by the love story either. The writing style is e ...more

This was a great book. I loved how it put everything together from all the other books. And you learned why all those things were happening. It was great how all the couples got together and fought. I just loved it. And Temple was great! And it just broke my heart to see Temple crying at the very end. When that happened you just knew how much he loved her and how he regretted not telling her sooner. O it was great. I enjoyed reading about what happened to them all in 2009. The epilogue tells you ...more

I love her take on vampire origins. I enjoyed the series, but after reading the last book, I was a little lost trying to remember what each couple's story was. There was a reunion of sorts, so they're all in the same room. Reading the other books, or maybe even the backs of them, might be helpful. You do get some clues to jog your memory, but I've read so many books in between that it wasn't as helpful as quickly as I would have liked...but that's just me. I remember now, too, that the books get ...more

reread 2015
I really wanted to like this book, since its the last one and all but I just didn't. I couldn't wait to see how things turned out and how they were able to take out the Order of the Silver Palm. I'm not one thats uncomfortable with steamy sex scenes but there was just too much of it in this one and not enough story. At times I felt like Temple hated Vivian and was just a jerk. I also felt Vivian should of had more of a backbone. This one just left me shaking my head a bit and disappointed.

I was looking forward to this last book in the series because I wanted to see all 5 of them working together to defeat the Order of the Silver Palm, and that part of the book was really glossed over. I thnk the book would have been better with less of the 3-4 page love scenes and more of the interaction with all the brotherhood, which isn't quite the response you expect to get about a Paranormal romance. The characters were so interesting that I missed reading of them.

This 5th book is the conclusion to the Brotherhood of Blood series. As in the entire series, Temple was a great alpha male hero. In fact, he is the leader of the Brotherhood of Blood. Vivian was an interesting heroine, torn between her love for Temple and the man who raised her. I did find the ending to be a little silly; however, all loose ends were brought together, and the romance was very, very hot. All in all, a satisfying series.

If I could I would give this book 10 stars for the best ending to a series I have read to date! I would have to write for days to say all I enjoyed about this book. I will leave it simply as this....

Fantastic characters, and story completion. Love that knows no bounds. A surprise conclusion that is both vindicating and lovely. Finally, an epilogue that tied everything up perfectly!

One of the best paranormal romance series ever! Great job!!
Sep 03, 2013 Raven rated it it was ok
Not much I could say about this one. The story itself sounded solid with lots of romance and action, but I made the mistake of listening to the audio version and it sucked! Maybe the book alone would have been good - but I struggled thru it, listening to the driest monotone reader ever. I normally love these kinds of stories, but because this was soooo hard to get thru I will not be attempting to read any of the other books in the series.

I've read many other reviews of this series and I am going to have to agree with them. I continued reading to see how the heroes' romances unfolded, while I remained disappointed in the activities of the villains. The subplots were utterly predictable, no twists or turns, I couldn't even really feel bad when one of the minor characters gets herself killed. Overall I'm glad I read them but they are still only OK.

c2009. Aarggh - this was a GR recommendation! I have lost all faith in the new recommendations that are added to the right hand side of the screen where the formulae pick up one just one word of the plot. In this case, it must have been 'vampire'. This was just awful....and recommended because I have liked some of Ms Kresley Coles books. This is in no way a similar read.
Mar 18, 2009 E. rated it liked it
A bit disjointed but perhaps this is because one needs to read the first 4 books in the series. An odd twist on the tale of Lilith which indicates that vampires are her offspring and that other branches of her family are present as well. A paranormal romance with the requisite erotic encounters that presupposes prior acquaintance with many of its characters.
Mar 04, 2009 Dana rated it liked it
This is the final book in this "okay" series. New twist to the vampire story with some historical accuracy in the referrals to Lillith. However, characterization of Lillith completely bizarre and doesn't really fit for me (kinda picture her more like L.A. Banks writes her).

Not the greatest series but if you run out of books, these will work.
May 08, 2010 Rachelle rated it it was ok
I read this book first in the series and I wonder if it would be better if I read them in order. Temple's lust/love for Vivian threatens the brotherhood of the blood. The love scenes are good but I feel like I'm missing some of the background and the book really didn't show how the battle was won. I'll try these in order to see if that helps.
