In 558 A.D, Talon of the Morrigantes was a proud chieftain and a survivor who led his clan. His parentage was not respected at all, he had endured the murder of his aunt, his mother, his uncle, and his wife, but Talon laid aside his grief and lived only for his clan's welfare. But in one heartbeat, he was betrayed as his cherished little sister was bound and slain before his eyes. Talon, tied and bound as well, was helpless to stop either his or his sister's execution. At his death, a cry for vengeance gave this Celtic warrior a place among the Dark-Hunters. Talon was taught by Acheron to bury his pain so deep that it wouldn't prick him anymore. It has been a very long time since that horrible night, and talon loved his life, or should I say his immortal life. He was the baddest thing to ever prowl the night. He knew no fear as he commanded the elements and protected the innocent. He was proud to watch over mankind, making sure that they were safe in a dangerous world that the humans knew nothing about.
Talon had all he could ever ask for. His chicory coffee, his warm beignets, and a hot woman for a one night stand every now and then. Or so he thought, until the night he met Sunshine Runningwolf after he was run over by a Mardi Gras float. She saves his life from being road kill, she's beautiful, wants nothing beyond one night, wants no long term commitments, and she's perfect! Except for two things, Sunshine is extremely forgetful; the poor woman can't even remember where she puts Talon's clothes! And the pain and dreams that Acheron taught Talon to bury centuries ago are starting to resurface every time Talon looks at Sunshine.
Loving Sunshine would mean her death and his too. As long as Talon's enemy is still lurking in the night, he will never know what peace or happiness is like with Sunshine. He would never put her life in danger just to love him. But Talon notices something about Sunshine that seems so familiar, something that reaches out to him, something he can't quite put his finger on.
Can Talon of the Morrigantes accept his curse? Or does he fight for the one who baffles him and taught him how to love again? Read Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter Novel Night Embrace and find out.
I highly recommend this book as well as all the others in this Dark-Hunter Series. For only $6 this book will draw you into the fantasy realm of the unknown.
