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 speci

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

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".

Bride is a vampire who lives on the Earth's surface. She has never met another of her kind and has, for some reason, started getting sick when she dri

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

Finally!! I've been waiting for Devyns book and it was well worth the wait.

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

I'm not sure what I was expecting from SEDUCE THE DARKNESS by Gena Showalter. I think I was expecting a good book, a fun and entertaining read. What I got instead, was a fantastic book with an absolutely wonderful story! I think I expected the passion in SEDUCE THE DARKNESS to take center stage with a plot line that moved the story forward but just added cushion to the romantic side of the story. Instead, the story was really quite wonderful with the romantic element acting as the icing on the c ...more

I didn't read the previous books in the Alien Huntress Series, but I didn't have any problems keeping up with the story and I don't feel like it took anything away from the story. Although, there were times throughout the book, that I did wonder about one or two of the other characters' back story. So, to find out their stories you can be sure I'll be reading the previous books.

This is a futuristic, paranormal romance set in Chicago, water is now a very precious commodity, so much so that people
