This is my 24th installment in my Man Crush Monday meme. Since I read mostly romance, I thought I’d share some of my “book crushes” with you, and possibly introduce you to some new reading material.
I’m changing it up a little – since it’s October and Halloween is coming up, I’m going to highlight men from the fantasy books I used to read. Maybe you fantasy readers will appreciate this – and maybe someday I will get back into fantasy….
My Man Crush Monday for this week is Lucan Thorne from Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian.
Summary from goodreads.com: He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell’s deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.
Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind—and the unwitting humans existing alongside them—from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands. Here, in the arms of the Breed’s formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all. . . .
Lucan is the Leader of the Boston Breed Warriors and a total alpha male. He was very protective of Gabrielle and of his men. There are about 10 books in this series and they are all good. This is a really good series and I would recommend it.
