Emma Holly is a phenomenal storyteller and doesn’t disappoint with her latest paranormal offering, Kissing Midnight. She has brilliantly created multi-dimensional characters with a lot to say, and the lead players literally explode on the pages with plenty dynamic interplay. Passionate sensuality, red hot sex and charisma abound throughout this book. Normally, I’m not a huge fan of shape-shifting, but Ms. Holly absolutely convinced me to change my mind so that I was on board from page until the astounding end. Kissing Midnight courageously goes out on a limb in ways that many erotic romances fear to tread. The conclusion will have you going back over what you read to ensure you didn’t miss anything-that’s how surprising the ending is. If you haven’t read the erotic masterpieces of Ms. Holly-shame on you!
