Review: Hunter by Night (Chronicles of Yavn #3) by Elisabeth Staab

She wants out
Party girl Alexia Blackburn is only hanging around the vampire compound until her best friend—the queen—has her baby. After that, nothing is going to stop Alexia from getting back to daylight, safety, and feeling like a normal human being. But leaving the vampire world has one big catch...
He needs her to stay
Head of vampire security Lee Goram has hated and distrusted humans for centuries. Feeding on vampire blood has kept him strong...but now it's killing him—and he's horrified to discover that Alexia may hold the key to his cure. He'd rather die defending his king than admit his weakness, but time is running out for the great vampire warrior.

And Staab has written the alpha vampire. The heroes of the past two Chronicles of Yavn books were not your typical romance novel hero. While they were not the typical alpha they were certainly not weak or useless. Lee oozes testosterone and badassery. He is in charge of the fighters that protect the king and his estate. Lee takes his jobs very seriously. He excels at training new members of his security team. He is the epitome of strong alpha male. His world is about to tumble down around him as he discovers that the blood that runs through his veins will be the death of him and the cures lies within something he loathes on principal alone, a human.

Being the lone human at the vampire estate has begun to take its toll on Alexia. She’s tired of the hours she’s expected to keep. She’s tired of the constant sneaking around to live her life and enjoy the fun that can be found away from the estate. She has become lonely because she has lost her best friend to a loving mate and soon to arriving baby. Most of all she is tired of the sexual frustration that comes with an attraction to a male vampire that despises humans. Lexi knows she has got to get out of her current living arrangement. Just when she sees daylight at the end of the tunnel the tables turn when Lee and Lexi finally give into the want that has been keeping us readers begging for this moment for way too long.

Lee and Lexi finally set the pages ablaze! Oh I have been waiting for this book. I knew it would be good and Staab did not disappoint. Hunter by Night lived up to every single one of my expectations. She revealed more secrets of her vampire world. I liked the way she made Alexia and Lee work. I was wondering how she would give the human a long life with her very sexy vampire. It worked for me.

I was so very pleased to see more of Xander, Theresa and little Eamon. Those three have really stolen the show for me with this series. I know they only have a little side story but I LOVE every single minute of their page time. Xander truly is swoon worthy and so perfect for Theresa. They are doing this weird dance around each other and he finally just says what I’m sure everyone is thinking, “I see no point in worrying about ‘too soon’ when there may not be a later.”
