Owning the Night (Hunting the Dark Lord Book 4) – Ann Jacobs

Determined to honor the memory of her lost lover, Mara Leone has dedicated herself to tracking down the vicious vampire Louis Reynard. When the trail leads her to Alexandre d’Argent, Mara feels a hunger she hasn’t felt in years. Struggling to protect her heart even as she surrenders to the undeniable passion that flares between them, Mara must decide if she’s ready to let go of the past for a sensuously erotic future.

Alexandre has followed Reynard to the site of his latest killing spree, but before he can lay his trap and slay the sadistic vampire at last, he meets the gorgeous and alluring Mara. She is the first woman in centuries to reawaken his deep sensual nature, and Alexandre knows he must protect her from Reynard if he’s to have any hope of making her his for all eternity.

As Alexander indulges Mara’s every burning desire and seduces her with the promise of eternal vampire life, he must expose himself to draw Reynard into their final battle. But like all hunted creatures, Reynard is even more dangerous when he’s cornered, and Alexandre must destroy him before Reynard destroys Mara and any chance they have for eternal love.
