Book Description

March 13 2004 Dark-Hunter Novels (Book 2)
Dear Reader,

Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to be immortal? To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power? That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to thousands, but am known to none. And I love every minute of it.

Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare: a conservative woman in a button-down shirt. Or in Amanda's case, buttoned all the way up to her chin. She's smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal-in other words, me.

My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Yet every time I look at her, I find myself wanting to try again. Wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist.

Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there's any way a woman like Amanda can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he's not sure it will ever beat again.

Kyrian of Thrace

PRAISE FOR SHERRILYN KENYON

"Kenyon is the reigning queen of the vampire novel."--Barbara Vey, Publishers Weekly

“An engaging read.”—Entertainment Weekly on Devil May Cry

“Kenyon’s writing is brisk, ironic, sexy, and relentlessly imaginative. These are not your mother’s vampire novels.”—The Boston Globe on Dark Side of the Moon

 

From the Inside Flap

Amanda came awake to an awful throbbing in her head. She felt terrible.
What had hap-
She tensed as she remembered the unseen man.
His words.
Terrified, she pushed herself up, and quickly learned she was on a cold concrete floor, in a very small, dust covered room...
And handcuffed to an unknown blond man.
A scream wedged itself in her throat, but she held it back.
Amanda took in her surroundings. There was no furniture or anything else. The only light came from a small bulb in the center of the ceiling.
Okay, so she wasn’t in immediate danger.
Still far from comforted, she looked at the body beside her. He lay with his back to her, and he was either dead or unconscious.
Hesitantly, she reached out and placed her hand against his tawny neck to check his pulse. A strong, heavy heartbeat thumped against her fingertips. Relieved he was alive, she tried to shake him.
He moaned low in his throat, then slowly blinked his eyes open.
With a curse, he grabbed her by the shoulders.
Before she could move, he rolled over with her, pinning her against the floor beneath his body as he held her wrists above her head.
Those dark, captivating eyes searched hers suspiciously.
Every inch of him was pressed intimately against her and she became instantly aware of the fact that his arms weren’t the only part of his body that was rock hard and solid.
His hips rested dead center between her legs while his hard, taut stomach leaned against her in a way that brought a flush to her cheeks. Made her feel hot and tingly. Breathless.

Awesome book 2 to introduce the Dark-Hunters. I just finished book #15 and Kyrian will always hold a special place in my heart. Great story mixed with love and mythology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stand in line for Yummy Leather Guys! April 27 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Have to have pointy Teeth & Leather? Well Kenyon's books are for you!! Her Dark Hunter Characters are Lovable & Unique..Unlike Many of the other "vampire" themed Novels I've read which seem to have the "Same" character, but with a different Name, background and Girlfriend....LOL!
Kenyon has a knack for mixing the Modern with the past w/ a Somewhat Spunky & Punky Twist!!
In this Book, our Yummy Dark Hunter find's himself Handcuffed to a Woman who Tries to Deny the reality of Who & What she is. Her family consists of Witches & Vampire Hunters :) Who could have guessed this of a Straight laced Amanda Devereaux. Again, Sherri greats us with a mix of Laughs & Steamy Love scenes.
If you Love guys in Leather...You gotta read her books :)

4.0 out of 5 stars You will not be disappointed! April 2 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Keyon has done it again! Kyrian is HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT! I'd give just about anything to wake up handcuffed to a mane like him! Whew! (**fans self vigorously).

He was a Dark Hunter, and she was an uninitiated human. The two were not to mix!.
When Amanda Deveraux, a self proclaimed "Boring and as straight-laced as they come" accountant went to her sisters home to let the dog out, she had no idea the adventure in store for her!

After entering her sister's home, Amanda finds that she is not alone. Someone is there! Before she can finish the thought, Amanda is hit over the head and kidnapped by Desiderius, an evil soul sucking vampire, or Daimon, who we later find out is after Amanda's deeply buried supernatural powers. Hours later, Amanda awakens to find herself handcuffed to a yummy "Macho Babe Boy"!

Kyrian of Thrace, formerly a prince and renowned Spartan General from ancient Greece, never new what was in store when he woke up cuffed to "sexy, witty, and smart" Amanda Deveraux. After the ultimate betrayal by his wife over 2000 years ago, Kyrian was given one chance at vengeance in return for an eternity of service to Artemis (Greek Goddess) as a Dark Hunter - A vampire, who is sworn to protect humans from the Daimons. And it's as a Dark Hunter that Kyrian must follow his duty and protect Amanda at any cost. But, what if that protection comes at the cost of his broken heart?

With twists and turns that kept this reader turning the page for more, Night Pleasures is a thoroughly entertaining and sensual read! You will not be disappointed!

Fav Comical Quote, Page 26:
"What is a Dark Hunter?" she asked. "Is it like Buffy the Vampire Slayer?" He laughed at that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, Fun, and Fabulous Series! March 16 2006
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you enjoy some fantasy mixed in with your romance, or some romance mixed in with your fantasy, or some Greek deities with a penchant for meddling in modern mortals' affairs mixed in with anything - then this series is for you. The writing is sharp and sassy, the characters are quirky and loveable, and the premise is fresh and creative - which is no small feat!
Start with Fantasy Lover, and then move on to Night Pleasures. There's a whole world waiting for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Am I missing something? June 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm a fan of romance, but I just don't get the vampire thing here. Aside from not really being able to care about the characters, I failed to sense anything dark enough to be disturbing or erotic enough to be really sexy. The book was mildly entertaining--adequate to break up an 8 hour international flight--but I can't agree with all the rave reviews. Perhaps I've read too many Anne Rice books to switch to vampire romances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yummy leather guy! June 18 2004
By Lealing
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kyrian of Thrace traded his soul two thousand years ago and has been a Dark Hunter since, an immortal who rids this world of the dangers of the vampire like Daimons who feed on the soul of humans. One day in New Orleans he wakes up to find himself handcuffed to Amanda Deveraux, an accountant who leads a normal boring life and likes it that way. They have been captured by Desiderius, a powerful Daimon who can only be killed by a Dark Hunter with a soul. The only problem is no Dark Hunter has a soul. A dark hunter has to win back his soul. Kyrian and Amanda managed to escape and they must hunt down Desiderius before they become the ones who are hunted down.
Kyrian of Thrace was gorgeous (as with all of Ms Kenyon's heros) and you can just imagine all those rippling muscles, 6 pack abs jumping off the page. Amanda was a tough heroine and stuck by her man even though she wasn't sure there was any future for them together. The sex scenes are hot. Your fingers will get burnt turning the pages. I also like the introduction of other Dark Hunters such as Acheron and Talon (who is featured in the following book Night Embrace). Ms Kenyon's writing is full of humour and modern slang which adds a certain pizzazz to the book which is unique. A thoroughly good read and I can't wait to read the following books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Responding to the French Teacher's Review June 7 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved the book. I thought that it was as well-executed as the other Dark Hunter books. Each book stands alone but, together, they form a complex puzzle of mythology, legend, and romance spanning centuries and beyond. If you like romance books, vampire books, mythology books, or are just looking for something different, give this book a try.
