  About STROKE OF MIDNIGHT: A Midnight Breed Series Novella 

  Born to a noble Breed lineage steeped in exotic ritual and familial duty, vampire warrior Jehan walked away from the luxurious trappings of his upbringing in Morocco to join the Order’s command center in Rome. But when a generations-old obligation calls Jehan home, the reluctant desert prince finds himself thrust into an unwanted handfasting with Seraphina, an unwilling beauty who’s as determined as he is to resist the antiquated pact between their families. Yet as intent as they are to prove their incompatibility, neither can deny the attraction that ignites between them. And as Jehan and Seraphina fight to resist the calling of their blood, a deadly enemy seeks to end their uneasy truce before it even begins….

I love the Midnight Breed series. I have been falling behind I missed some of the previous ones. Luckily with this being a part of 1001 Dark Nights it pretty much can be read as a stand-alone. Stroke of Midnight is a quick exciting and hot read. 

Jehan is happy with his life the way it is, being a captain of his own squad in Rome; but he know his time is coming an age old family tradition that he has to fulfill. The joining of two families that were caught in a feud ended the bloodshed by one person from each of the families married. The tradition has them stay for eight days alone to give them time to get to know each other and fall in love. Jehan wants nothing to do with it he thinks it's a stupid and outdated practice he was just going to play through the motions until he saw her...    

Seraphina was adopted into the family after being orphaned as a child, she feels it's her mission to take care of the countless of orphans who weren't as lucky as she was she even uses her own money. She thinks the tradition is outdated but when her father promised to give her her trust early she thought she could just play through the motions and make it through the week until she saw him...

Lust at first sight but when Sera learns what Jehan does she thinks he is just another heartless killer and Jehan thinks she just a money grubbing socialite. The first night Jehan succeeds in pissing of Sera by teasing her to an almost orgasm and then leaves her, for two days they manage to avoid each other until life intervenes. The site where Sera has been working has had their supplies held up so Jehan drives her there to help out. From then on they see each other in another light, they see each other for what they really are. Things aren't always what they seem, people you trust aren't always the good guys.  

Overall, This wasn't as good as some of the other but I think that was because it was so short and it was still good.

“They’re getting away.”
He and his teammates from the Order’s Rome command center had been in pursuit of the four blood-thirsty Rogues since their patrol had been alerted to the killing at the club. They had contained the situation before any of the other humans had realized what was going on, but their mission wouldn’t be over until they ashed the feral members of their own race.
“Split up,” he told his men. “Damn it, we can’t lose them! Close in from all sides.”
His comrade and good friend, Savage, grinned and gave a nod of his blond head before veering right to take one of the other winding alleys on Jehan’s command. The other warrior, a hulking, shaved-head menace called Trygg, made no acknowledgment to his team leader before vanishing into the darkness like a wraith to carry out the order.
Jehan sped like an arrow through the tight artery of the ancient street ahead of him, dodging slow-moving compact cars and taxis who were getting nowhere fast in the district that was clogged with tourists and club-hoppers even as the hour crept close to midnight.
The public out and about tonight was a mix of human and Breed civilians, something that would have been unheard of just twenty years ago, before the Breed’s existence had been revealed to mankind.
Now, in cities around the world, the two populations lived together openly. They worked together. Governed together. But their hard-won peace was fragile. All it might take was one horrific killing—like the one earlier tonight—to set off a global panic.
While every Breed warrior of the Order had pledged his blood and breath to prevent that from happening, others among mankind and the Breed were secretly—and not-so-secretly—instigating war.
Tonight’s Rogue attack had the stamp of conspiracy all over it. And it wasn’t the first. During the past few nights there had been a handful of others, in Rome and elsewhere in Europe. While it wasn’t unusual for one of Jehan’s kind to become irreversibly addicted to blood, the spate of recent slayings in all-too-public places by Rogues torqued up on some kind of Bloodlust-inducing narcotic had fingers pointing to the terror group called Opus Nostrum.
Just a few days ago, the Order had scored a staggering hit on Opus, taking out its newest leader, who’d been headquartered in Ireland. The cabal was hobbled for now, but its hidden members were many and their machinations seemed to know no bounds. They and all who served them had to be stopped, or the consequences were certain to be catastrophic.
