Romantic novel about vampires. I found myself laughing very early on - but not for the right reasons.

Laurent, the hero of Master of Darkness, is one of those characters who stands out, demands you notice him and goes out of his way to keep your attention. He first appears as a quasi villian in I Hunger For You, seemingly working with Tribe Manticore, the lowest of the low.

In Sizemore's world, there are 3 classes of vampires; The Clans, who are like royalty; The Families, who are upper to middle class; and The Tribes, the poor cousins. Laurent's mother, a Clan vampire, was captured by Justinian

This was my first book by Susan Sizemore, might be my last. Not sure yet.
This book had a very good premise, a brilliant setup, and an intriguing plot, yet it didn't deliver.
I felt the story was all over the place, without a proper focus on the blooming romance between Laurent and Eden. They just met, and then Bam! they are lovers. I couldn't detect that special bonding between them, the connection that could make a vampire hunter change her life for a vampire or why a vampire, as confused as he

This is the 4th book in the Primes series by Susan Sizemore, and I will definitely be reading the whole series now! I was drawn into her world of Clans, Families, Primes and even werewolves and Hunters. It was a little hard at first diving straight into the 4th book without any background (I got the book secondhand and didn't know it was a series), but it was great. My favorite line of it was when Laurent and Eden were fighting some Manticores, when Laurent shouted at them, "Hey! That's MY human ...more

A great series if you like the sexual strong male characters and their equally strong minded mates. For those who like vampires and romance will not want to put the book down. Laurent renegade vampire Tribe Manticore has a bounty on his head from Justinian. Vampire hunter Eden Faveau cannot believe she gave up Hawaii to hunt vampires to work with Sid Wolf a member of Clan Wolf, on a drug dealings with Dawn. Laurent misguides Eden into the assumption that he is Sid Wolf when they first meet. The

Read this in two days. Could not put the book down. Awesome chemistry between the main characters. I really was curious about the ending and I can't wait to read book 5 in the series next.

Ok, before we get to the review, I have to lodge one of my "what the heck were they thinking with this cover model" rants. Why, why, why can't they at least check with the author and ask the simple question, "what do the hero and heroine look like?" But no, this seems to be an idea that publishers can NOT get into their teeny, tiny little brains. Our hero, Laurent, is a blond with long hair. The cover model is a brunette with SHORT hair. Sigh.

Ok, having gotten that rant out of the way--I enjoy S

Book #4 of the vampire “PRIMES” series.

Bad boy vamp Laurent was introduce in “I Hunger for You”; his story is fleshed out and concluded in this book. I got'ta say I’ve always had a soft spot for misunderstood bad boys, who have a wicked sense of humor and deep down really want to be the hero. Such is the story of the renegade vampire, who doesn’t really want to be saddled with a mate and would rather be foot loose, fancy free, and rich from stolen wealth. But as they say things don’t always turn

Okay, I picked up this book just by chance but I instantly fell in love with it during the first chapter. It's got a great plot - really interesting and Sizemore always kept me guessing what was going to happen next. The characters are funny, witty and of course sexy. Laurent is a great personality. He's charming, and as Eden describes in the book "quirky". I love Eden. She's strong, independent, smart and resourceful but you can always see the feminine side of her that falls for Laurent.

Gotta get the rest of the series and investigate the differences between Families, Clans and Tribes! While I have only read two int he series, and not in order, I have gleaned plenty of info about these differences, but this second instalment has me hungering for more!

This is number 4 in the Primes series. If you like action, adventure, paranormal romance and sex, witty heroines and some implausible relationship snafus (typical paranormal romance stuff) then you'll enjoy all the Primes books, this one included.

Finally - a bad boy. Like this one better. I need my characters to have a little more depth and we had more of a comprehensive storyline with this one.

Probably my Favorite from the 'Primes' series. (All of which I really enjoyed). I have yet to read anything of Susan Sizemore's that I didn't like!

Good. I liked it a lot. I liked how both characters evolved into less narrow-minded people and they found happiness at the end.

I was actually hoping that Susan Sizemore would make a novel about the Tribes. The fact that she did made me very giddy and extremely excited. This novel was excellently madeto me. The characters made me laugh on multiple occasions and I really did love them all. I mean honestly, how could you not love a dangerously sexy man, with long hair, and a to die for grin. I certainly didn't and I did so with great pleasure too. Your imagination goes wild with this novel, creating new scenes in just a bl ...more

This is one of those books I've been tossing around for a while and have decided to finally give it a fighting chance. Why? Because lots of people seem to recommend Sizemore and her blurbs are all over the place. Plus, a series about vampires and werewolves? Of course, I had to try it on.

But first, let's take a moment to rant. The whole vampire/werewolf thing... done to death, am I right? I mean, I get that in a world where vampires exists it seems only fitting to allow for werewolves and what h

What I HATED!!

1. Cover - The dude is supposed to have supe long platinum blond hair. Who is on the cover? Not him.

2. The language - it is so old. Old terminology drives me nuts. "Was I missed?" in stead of "did you miss me?" Just little quirks all through the book including her romantic interlude (her words) and it's description.

3. Several conversations were incongruent to what was happening. Things brought up, but never answered. Partial info. that needs to be answered now, not in a couple boo
