Dark Hunter Series

Reading the Entire Dark-Hunter/Hunter Legend Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Book 3 // Night Embrace

I am currently on a book journey – one that is over 40 books long. Review for book 1 and the prequel is here. You can read along with me if you choose. I am reading book 3 which is Dance with the Devil.


An ancient Celtic warrior cursed by a god to bring death to any woman he loves, Talon, a seductive vampire, prowls the night, serving as a protector of the innocent, until in modern-day New Orleans, a runaway Mardi Gras float brings him face to face with the outrageous Sunshine Runningwolf.

Dear Reader,
Life is great for me. I have my chicory coffee, my warm beignets, and my best friend on the cell phone. Once the sun goes down, I am the baddest thing prowling the night: I command the elements, and I know no fear. For centuries, I’ve protected the innocent and watched over the mankind, making sure they are safe in a world where nothing is ever certain. All I want in return is a hot babe in a red dress, who wants nothing more from me than one night.

Instead, I get a runaway Mardi Gras float that tries to turn me into roadkill and a beautiful woman who saves my life but can’t remember where she put my pants. Flamboyant and extravagant, Sunshine Runningwolf should be the perfect woman for me. She wants nothing past tonight, no ties, no long-term commitments.
But every time I look at her, I start yearning for dreams that I buried centuries ago. With her unconventional ways and ability to baffle me, Sunshine is the one person I find myself needing. But for me to love her would mean her death. I am cursed never to know peace or happiness-not so long as my enemy waits in the night to destroy us both.
–Talon of the Morrigantes

My Thoughts // ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I loved this book. Talon and Sunshine were great. I really really enjoyed this book so much! Talon and Sunshine were just *chef’s kiss*. This book had me reading until 3am. I loved how even though it is romance there was still plot and that there was character development.

However, I do wish there was a bit more feeling in this book. While the dynamics between the main couple were great, I just wish there was more. I also think there was too much sex in this book. Gasp! I know, can there truly be too much sex in a book. The answer is yes. At least for me. While the romance was so good. I wish there was more emotion.

I loved how Talon thought about how cute and endearing Sunshine’s clumsiness was. It was cute to read about. Overall this was a great read and I did not put it down until I was done with it.

I am loving this series and can not wait to keep reading!!
