A little extra from the Midnight Breed, as Gideon and Savannah finally get their story told!

In the books that span the Midnight Breed series, Gideon is the smartass tech-geek of The Order, an elite group of Breed (vampire) Warriors. He is the tireless control centre of their operations, and unlike the rest of the warriors, he remains at the compound, never going out to fight with his brothers. He is also happily mated to his one true love, Savannah.

This is the story of how Gideon and Savannah met, fell in love, and how Gideon found his unique place within The order.

Set in the 1970s, Savannah is a College freshman, while Gideon is a 300+ year old Warrior. While this may sound like an unlikely pairing, when these two meet, the feels are there from the very beginning. Sparks fly and the relationship between them unfolds very quickly – including some smoking sexy time (up against the wall, no less!). But the emotion between them is really strong and, getting the story from both POVs, we get to see exactly what they are feeling as they fall for each other.

I loved getting to see Gideon as a warrior, in full-on protector mode.

“You make me feel safe, Gideon. In a way I never knew before. You make me feel as though nothing bad can touch me so long as I’m with you.
“It can’t. I won’t allow that. Not so long as I am breathing.” His voice was thunder, deep and rumbling. “You’ll always be safe, Savannah. I’ll stake my life on that”

And he even managed to bring the romance and make me swoon…

“Let me love you … Say you love me, and let me start being the man you want me to be.”

There is a secondary storyline featuring nastiness from Gideon’s past, and Savannah’s Breedmate gift of seeing the history of an object with one touch, and that leads to some excitement, and a few surprising developments!

Fans of the series will love the brief glances (and I do mean BRIEF) of Lucan, Dante, Rio and Eva, and Conlan and Danika, and we even get a little bit more insight into one of my faves – Tegan.

But it’s Gideon’s story, and although it’s shorter than I would have liked, and things are wrapped up very quickly at the end, it shows us the beginning of this fantastic couple, and answers the questions that I wanted answered.

I really enjoyed it – 4 stars.
