An ancient vampire, an ancient grief…a love that makes his blood sing…
Midnight Playground, Book 2
Aleron is ancient, powerful, immortal…a vampire who idles away his time playing at his favorite haunt, Midnight Playground. His favorite toys: beautiful young men. His game: BDSM, experiencing through the minds of his partners the sensations he can no longer quite feel himself.
The one thing he has vowed to avoid at all costs is love, especially for a woman. In a hundred years he has never been tempted to break that vow—until a lovely mortal woman enters his dungeon to watch him play. And his blood hums the ancient song of long-forgotten desire.
Raised in the Indian slums of London, exotic dancer Meeraj enters Midnight Playground a woman with nothing left to lose, numb to all but the most extreme forms of stimulation. As she watches Aleron’s blood play, she knows only his razor-sharp skills will satisfy. And she catches an odd mental glimpse of the grief that shadows his heart.
From their first touch, they are caught up in a whirlwind of exquisite agony that releases their emotions from the weight of the past. Exposing them to risks they’ve both fought to avoid. Love…and loss.
Is there anything more sexy then an alpha vampire? Aleron has been spending most of the last three hundred years never letting anyone close. Oh he had companions, but only male because he could not see himself ever falling for another female after Emeline. Until Meerja came into his dungeon and never let him go.
Meerja has had a very hard life. Fearing nothing, she ventures into Midnight Playgrounds in hopes of catching the attention of a vampire. Little does she know not only is she going to snag the vampire she was seeking, but that he was to become hers forever. The bloodsong sings strong between them both, and neither can or wants to deny it.
I fell in love with Aleron in the first book and even more so in this one. I enjoyed how Ms. Bradley put them together at the hands of Hex and Nissa. It was a great way to pay Aleron back for bringing the two loves together in the previous book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. It was filled with some of the hottest, steamiest scenes -- both M/M AND M/M/F I have read in a really long time. I don’t know if there will be future books, but I am hoping that Ever gets his own story at least, but would be thrilled to see many more characters to come, because I do not want to see an ending to this series. It is well worth the read now and over and over again. A keeper.
