And Staab has written the alpha vampire. The heroes of the past two Chronicles of Yavn books were not your typical romance novel hero. While they were not the typical alpha they were certainly not weak or useless. Lee oozes testosterone and badassery. He is in charge of the fighters that protect the king and his estate. Lee takes his jobs very seriously. He excels at training new members of his security team. He is the epitome of strong alpha male. His world is about to tumble down around him as ...more

Hunter by Night is the 3rd and final instalment in this part of the Chronicles of Yavn series and it is by far the best book yet.

We first met Alexia, in King of Darkness where she was the heroine, Isabel's best friend. Now Isabel is Queen and heavily pregnant with her first child and Lexi's place in her life is a little less significant. All she really wants is to get a little normalcy in her life, instead she is cooped up, the only human in an estate full of vampires, vampires who are always o

Hunter by Night is the third book in author Elisabeth Staab’s Chronicles of Yavn Series and the book I have been most looking forward to in the series after falling in love with Lee form the very first book. Well, I was not disappointed. This book was everything I had hoped for and more.
Alexia Blackburn is slowly losing her mind. Being the only human stuck in a house full of vampires with the constant threat of war from their enemies, the wizards, is just a tad bit taxing. Especially to

O wow yet another paranormal series featuring vampires to get your teeth (fangs.) into and hey why didn't I discover these books sooner? Ms Staab has penned an interesting series that features purist vampires hiding in plain sight whilst trying not to intermingle with humans if possible. These strong passionate vampires follow a code and have strict rules but you just know that rules are meant to be broken. The vampire king has finally tracked down the woman meant to be his mate and joyfully the ...more

Oh I have definitely been missing out on some damn fine paranormal goodness by not reading Staab sooner! Hunter by Night was a gloriously snarky, steamy and action packed read as vamp Lee--who so doesn't go for humans--falls for the "enemy" tiny frail and sassy *gasp* mortal. Blast those meddling Fates! lol And all while plague wielding nut jobs abound, baby vamps are being born and all kinds of para craziness surrounds them. Lordy it was fun!

I really liked both Lee and Alexia. Near broody

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Vampires, romance – I’m in....:) This was an enjoyable read, not too heavy, some decent action and a real story and hot romance to back it up. I haven't read the first two books but a quick read of the descriptions and it was easy to follow this one anyway. I think reading them first would enhance the enjoyment of this one though. Too many books too little time :(

Emotionally delicious! I love Staab’s snarky dialogue and no character does it quite like Alexia, the human trapped in a mansion of vampires for her own protection. Add in Lee, the vampire warrior who has hated and mistrusted humans his whole life, and you get two people who secretly want each other, but hate the fact that they do. Trading verbal jabs at each other to cover up their feelings builds a lot of sexual tension and you know what happens then…hubba hubba! I'm a sucker for this kind of ...more

I finally get the chance to read the rest of this intoxicating and refreshing series! I've been waiting for so long to read the special story of Lee Goram. The Chronicles of Yavn series has impressed and even titillated me since its release.

I first met Lee in the first volume and as the best friend of the prince / now king of vampires; Thad Morgan. Since I begin this dreaming adventure, I felt in love with many characters but since the end of the second volume, where I learned about Lee's former

I'm a big fan of this whole series, so when I found out I won a copy of this book, I was ecstatic! Lee and Lexi have been dancing around each other for quite some time, and to be honest, I couldn't wait to see what was up with Lee. You can clearly tell, from the other books, that this vamp has a big story, and bringing it to page was not going to be easy. Of course, Elisabeth Staab did a super amazing job with this daunting task. The book was fantastic!

This is the book I was waiting for. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Thad in the first book, he's an introspective hero, and then there is Anton in the second one who is even more that way, gentle and protective too. But there was something about Lee the whole time. He's the growly one, the grouchy one, not the guy who woos with flowers and words, but the one who tells you not to be stupid while he manhandles you but who makes you fee safe and cherished. It was love at first sight with me and ...more

This is the third book in Elisabeth's Chronicles of Yavn series, which is very steamy and action-packed. This one features Alexia, who wants out of the vampires compound and into the sun, but is staying until her best friend has her baby (we're talking about the queen). She's also constantly in "trouble" with the head of security (Lee) and doing things she's not supposed to be doing. The electric current between the two has sparked since the first book and finally comes to a mini explosion, whic ...more

4.5 Loved the banter between Lee and Lexi
Book three pulls you straight into the wonderful world of vampires who are only trying to protect their way of life from an evil hell bent on destroying them and the world. Alexia is the vampire queen's best friend and only human living in a house full of vampires. Staying in one place to long is not what Alexia has planned out for her life and she wants to leave. Lee, the head of the king's security team wants nothing more than to protect Alexia.

I have been intrigued by Lee since King of Darkness. He takes his duties to the King and the Vampires very seriously. He also has a deep seated mistrust of humans, put you just know when he loves it will be very intense. Alexia has serious trust issues of her own, but she also is very loyal to those she lets get close. Seeing the two of them acknowledging their feelings for each other and finding their way in the midst of the evil that surrounds them was amazing. The way the author uses several ...more

Fantastic read, great story with lots of issues taking place in an attempt to possibility wrap up the storyline. Wonderful characters, loving them is a joy, Chronicles of Yavn is a truly great series. I am sorry but I can’t agree that this storyline is over, the main dispute, the war between the wizards and the vampires has not been truly settled, along with new concerns that need to be addressed which is now taking place in this society, the series definitely could be continued.

*I received a free ARC of Hunter by Night from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review*

I actually think this is more of a case of 'it's me - not you'... Hunter by Night is well written, but I guess I may need to read some UF without vampires in them for a little while...

I have been waiting for Lee's book forever. I knew there was more to him! I mean how could you not love a grumpy, pissy, moody vampire? Well let me tell you he has met his match Lexi brought that big bad vamp to his knees figuratively and hey literally as well. Lol this was so worth the wait. The progression of the series has been amazing. As always I simply love all the characters new and old! This as well as this series is a must read!

*sigh* Once again, a beautiful thing is coming to an end. One of my favorite series, Chronicles of Yavn, is ending. I am sad, but also satisfied because. Elizabeth Staab concluded the series with the best book yet! Lee gave me some problems at first and I thought I might have to get out my cast iron attitude adjuster.

Loved this book. I respected Alexia for wanting to go on with her life...she just didn't fit in at the compound and Lee sure as hell wasn't into her or much less liked her. Or so we thought.
These two are dynamic, hard headed and loveable.
Neither one realizes just how much they need one another.
Awesome book; awesome series.
Highly Recommend.

Paranormal Romance
She doesn't belong with the vampires, she's knows this. But for her safety and to be close to her best friend as she nears her due date, the heroine has moved into the secret compound. As s human she is basically an outcast from the residents minus a few friends. And as a rule she generally tries to stay out of the hero's way. He is surly, arrogant and far too tempting to be around. Despite both of them having a gift of irritating the other, the heroine feels attracted to the massive and beautif ...more
I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Staab's fangtabulous Chronicles of Yavn series and have been itching for Lexi and Lee's story since sparks first flew between them in book one, King of Darkness. It was soooo worth the wait.

Lee is 700+ years old, commander of the vampire army who just happens to have a mad hate-on for humans. Lexi is the vampire queen's human best friend. Did I mention that Lee is alphalicious to the core and insanely gorgeous? *swoons* Despite his arrogance and bad attitude, Lexi i

Hunter by Night is the third and final installment in Elisabeth Staab’s Chronicles of Yavn series. Ms. Staab did an incredible job wrapping up her series. We get action, sexual tension, stagger reveals into the Vampire world and character wrap ups.

We meet Alexia and Lee in the King of Darkness where we learn that Alexia is Isabel’s best friend. Isabel is now Queen of the Vampires and pregnant, which makes Alexia’s place a little less significant. Throughout t

He's furious with her because there are troubles brewing that she doesn't know about and is afraid she could inadvertently get caught in the cross fire.

Lee doesn't like humans because of the way his family was killed and because he's lived for so long he's been around to see what humans will do once they find out ab

This really enjoyable book was the third installation of the Chronicles of Yavn series. This is the book we have fans of the series have been waiting for. Lee and Lexi. Finally.

This story picks up shortly after the last one ended. There has been some quiet between the vampires and the wizards but a new foe emerges and makes things much worse than they have been before. Not only do they have the outside enemies, it becomes apparent that there are far more internal problems than Thad and Lee orig

My summary:

Alexia has had a crush on Lee, the vampire king's second in command, since she first met him. Lee is also attracted to Alexia, but he's hated humans for centuries. He pushes her away. Lexi makes plans to leave the vampire compound as soon as her friend, the queen, has her baby.

Meanwhile, a deadly threat from Lee's past is resurrected and there is treason in the vampire community. Humans and vampires are in danger. Lexi is in danger from all sides.

To top everything off, Lee is dying.

I love this series. Even though it's a vampire series their enemy are wizards that are after them to steal their powers by eating their hearts. Yeah, I know...gross. Anyway, this time around we have Lee and Lexi, who have been fighting their attraction to each other from the start. Finally they get a little action that brings them even closer and they get to deal with their relationship. I really liked them together and had been rooting for them from the beginning. We also got to see Xander and ...more

This is an awesome book, with non-stop action, developments, engaging characters and a sexy and hot romance. Truly, is was a pleasure to read Hunter By Night!

Alexia wants to leave the vampire compound without being noticed. Lee doesn't want her to leave but he's a very stubborn vampire who doesn't admit his feelings for the human woman. But Lee has a secretive addiction and he needs the blood of the human variety he despises. As if this wasn't enough, a threat from 650 years ago has returned and

Elisabeth Staab loves passionate stories and happy endings. Her books have been called “emotionally delicious,” “action-packed,” and “gloriously snarky.” When not writing romance about vampires and werewolves and emotionally wounded boxers (oh, my!), she enjoys date night with her husband, reading with her kids, and marathoning her favorite books or TV series.
