New Hunter Legacy book!

Cain and Marina

“Let’s get something straight, Marina Moretskova. I may have saved your life back at the hotel, but that does not mean I won’t dump you out of this car right here and now. I don’t need your problems. I’m sure as hell not the kind of man you want to play games with or try to bullshit.”
“I know what kind of man you are, Cain Hunter.”

We met Cain in the Born of Darkness
He was the head security team of a casino and he did not seem to be a nice Breed.

Cain Hunter has been adrift since leaving Las Vegas several months earlier. He’s restless. He’s bored. He desperately needs to find something to occupy his time and just as he decides to leave Miami he saves the life of a beautiful women who turns out to be a breedmate now he vows to insure he safety since she is still the target of a powerful organization.

Hour of Darkness is the second book in Lara Adrian's Hunter Legacy series but these books have all specifically been written to work as standalone stories so you can read them in any order. If you did read Born of Darkness then you'll recognise Caine as the Breed Hunter who was working in the casino and who had made more than a few questionable choices before he came through and helped Asher and Naomi in the end. He's the only character we've met previously though and through him we get to meet ...more

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I have such bad memory at times that when I started reading this book I couldn't really remember much about the previous book in this spin off series.  What's great about Lara Adrian's writing is that she can deliver a fully standalone story even as it's part of a much bigger world.  So if you are just jumping into this series, feel free to do that

A fast-moving, exciting, suspenseful and romantic PNR read, I loved this one!

This is the second book in the Hunter Legacy series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. Cain was introduced in the first book of this series, Born of Darkness, but I honestly could not remember him at all, and I was able to pick up this story and get completely caught up in all of the action and excitement with no problems at all.

Cain is a member of the Breed, a vampire known as a Hunter. Cruelly bred

This book was pretty predictable with what I've come to expect from the Breed series and this spin off series. Cain, a bit grumpy, on the outs with his family, or so he thinks, they all have been missing him. Marina, a breedmate, who needs help. The only question is who is after Marina. I really thought I knew who the bad guy was, instead I was pleasantly surprised, glad that Marina is a good person and she protected those that needed it. I also loved that Cain talked to Marina about why he thou ...more

Another terrific Hunter Legacy (Midnight Breed) story. I wasn't sure if I was going to want to read about Cain, but he definitely redeemed himself when he saved Marina! Can't wait for more of this series!

Inexplicably, this book had given me one of the most amazing beginnings of any books! Cain and Marina were so unbelievable together. I could feel right off that she was going to be his perfect Breedmate 💕 She shared what he needed to know so he could keep her safe. No annoying mystery that would've come back to bite them later. Sure, she did keep her important piece of secrets for just a little bit longer. As for Cain . . . he was totally super romantic! Nothing of a born Hunter and an assassin ...more

She has done it again. This book was so good. Lots of action and intrigue. It made me fall in love with the series again. This was the kind of book that made we want to go back and read the series all over again.
Cain is a great hero. Marina his perfect mate. I think the Hunter series is off to a great start.

I received an ARC for my honest review.
I gotta say I was quite disappointed with this one. First, I didn't like the hero, almost right from the start, and second the story line and the whole interaction felt predicted, you know this pattern and you've read it in too many PNR books. I don't read as many PNR as I used to these days, mostly stick to Contemporary so many that's part of my problem. Big-ass-bad-Vampire, moody, arrogant, killing-machine, alpha, aggressive, over-protective, knows what's best for the heroine. You've met "him" ...more
This book was not as good as the previous one. It had some exciting moments and twists for sure but there was one thing lacking; captivating characters.

Both main characters felt a little bit flat in my opinion. Cain was talking about his lack of honor or "if he were a better man..." for the most part of his book. Marina had two great scenes and everything else was just plain even though she had such a promising personality.

New secondary characters in this book are; Bram, Lana, Raze, Logan and Kn

This was a good read, but I wish it was a little longer! There was some action and mystery to enjoy, but the romance needed a little more space to develop. Cain and Marina’s relationship happened in a blink of an eye, but the sizzling emotional link from Breed mates happened way later than I was expecting, making it difficult to completely buy into the declarations of love.

Born and raised as an assassin in the notorious Hunter program, Breed vampire Cain has since put his specialized skills to use as a mercenary willing to clean up any problem for a price. Or so he thought. After his job for a low life casino boss in Las Vegas strains even his dubious code of honor, Cain pulls up stakes and lands in Miami for a much-needed break. All he wants is time away to clear his head and regroup, but then a beautiful young woman is nearly killed in front of his eyes and the ...more

Cain played a great part in the previous book, but this story delves deeper into his personalty and the reasons why he leads his chosen lifestyle.

Marina was raised in a Russian mafia environment. This is the only life that she has ever known. Her uncle, a prominent figure in the Bratva is her only family.

There was a whole lot to like about Cain and Marina’s story, Hour of Darkness, by Lara Adrian. The book follows Cain as he saves Marina from certain death and whisks her away to safety. Cain is a member of the Breed and when he finds out that Marina is a Breedmate he feels compelled to keep her from harm; he also finds himself attracted to her in a way that he hasn’t felt in a very long time. Locked behind the walls of a Darkhaven that Cain was once a member of, Cain and Marina try to figure out ...more

I fell in love with this author's Midnight Breed series. This spin off Hunter series gets better and better.
Lara Adrian knows what she's doing when it comes to damaged vampires and the women who help them overcome.
I'm going to try to write this without any spoilers, so please bear with me.
Cain is as dangerous as the rest of the Hunter vampire's. He makes his money doing what he does best. Being what he was made to be.

Hour of Darkness is the second book in the Hunter Legacy series, which is an offshoot of Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series. This story focuses on Cain, a Hunter that we met in Las Vegas in the first book of the series, Born of Darkness, and Marina Maretskova, the feisty Russian female that is his match. Cain can seem be a somewhat unlikeable character as he is rude and behaves like an a$$ to everyone much of the time, however we know that he behaves badly because he is hiding his fear and how ...more

Exactly what one would expect of a Lara Adrian novel, Hour of Darkness manages to be even more exciting than the one that came before it. In Born of Darkness we met Cain Hunter in Las Vegas, bitter and disillusioned, ready for a change. In the beginning of Hour of Darkness nothing has changed, Cain is still the same person only he's relocated to Miami. Enter Marina Moretskova, beautiful, Russian and trouble waiting to happen.

The Hour of Darkness is the second book in this series and it is as you would expect full of action, intrigue, and romance.

Pageturner and a Heartbreaker!!!

Omg, I don't know how she does it, but honest to God, her books just keep getting better and better with each one!! I think the reason they are so believable, so REAL, is because even though they are vampires, she writes them as real people you can relate to. This one in particular broke my heart for Marina, who loved her Uncle so completely, she didn't even see anything coming!! She trusted him implicitly. I personally would have hated him after what he did to he

Cane has something in his past that affects everything he does now. Because of this issue, he wants to live life with no connections to any person. But when he receives a vision his life changes abundantly.
Marina is from Russia but is on a mission in Miami for her uncle. Then a large Breed male jumps in to save her from an assassins bullet. He saves her life several times throughout this story. But the question is who is after her and why do they want her dead?

I loved reading this book, I was pleasantly surprised that it was about Cain. I might or might not have known it would be about him but since my brain is a bit fuzzy at times I assume I didn't know it would be him. There for it took me a bit to connect the dots and when I read that he left Las Vegas I realized we've met him in the previous book.

The story about Cain is wonderfully written, and I expected nothing less from Lara. She always knows how to make you dive into the story and not want to
