Winter, a hybrid, has spent her life at war. A group of humans who are part demon, the hybrids, along with the lupines and nightwalkers, have dedicated their lives to defeating demons and protecting humanity. Yet, despite their united cause, the three groups share an uneasy alliance.
When hybrid military compounds come under attack from demon insurgents, Winter has no choice but to turn to the lupines and nightwalkers for assistance. It's a partnership based on necessity and she has no intention of letting down her guard with either group.
Marcus, the nightwalker Lord, has other plans. The immediate attraction between him and Winter promises a passion he can't ignore. To claim her as his own, he'll not only have to fight the demons who seem hell-bent on destroying her, but her own misconceptions about him and the nightwalker race. It's a battle he refuses to lose.
An exciting adventure and romance that grabs you on the first page and never lets go. Winter joins the Order after her husband is killed by Demons, now a Hybrid, she uses her demon strength and abilities to dish out violence and revenge on all demon kind. But she faces more then just the demons outside her, she struggles with the one inside as well. The only way to stop the demons total ownership is to take a mate, but Winter is unwilling to risk her heart again. When Marcus comes to her rescue she doesn’t want nor need his help but this arrogant Nightwalker Lord refuses to back down until he possesses her; body, heart and soul. When the Demons start to organize though and it seems that a Hybrid rogue is behind the attacks Winter must accept help where she can get it. Can she resist the instant connection and intense heat between her and the Nightwalker? The sensual dance between these two is irresistible and full of passion. Not to mention incredibly hot! Kiss of Darkness is non-stop action with sub-plots involving two other couples masterfully woven into the main plot centering on Winter & Marcus. Several twist and turns will capture your attention and distract you from a few foreseen plot points. I highly enjoyed this read from new-to-me author Loribelle Hunt, and look forward to the next installment in this series.
