Lara Adrian-- "Shades of Midnight" (Midnight Breed series)

Something inhuman is stalking the frigid Alaskan wilds, leaving unspeakable carnage in its wake. For bush pilot Alexandra Maquire, the killings stir memories of a horrific event she witnessed as a child and evoke in her the inexplicable sense of otherness she has long felt within herself but never fully understood...until a darkly seductive stranger with secrets of his own enters her world. Sent from Boston on a mission to investigate the savage attacks and stop the slaughter, vampire warrior Kade has his own reasons for returning to the frigid, forbidding place of his birth. Haunted by a secret shame, Kade soon realizes the stunning truth of the threat he faces. A threat that will jeopardize the fragile bond he has formed with the courageous, determined young woman who arouses his deepest passions and most primal hungers. But in bringing Alex into his world of blood and darkness, Kade must confront both his own personal demons and the even greater evil that could destroy all he holds dear.

***I liked this installment in the series. But Kade is a new member of the Order and has less history. Lucan, the leader of the Order, is 900 years old and has a lot of history and "demons" to escape while keeping humanity safe from the Rogue vampires and their new threat of the Ancient. One of the original founders of the Breed, the Ancient was believed to be defeated in the war between the First Generation Breed and their fathers. But Kade has his own battle to fight with his twin. He is sent to Alaska to take care of the latest incident involving a vampire attack. Only to discover it is much more that just a Rogue vampire. Eliciting the help of a bush guide Alexandra Maguire, he finds himself falling for her. He saves her as much as she saves him. Their story seems somewhat "lighter" than the others in this series, probably because the other members of the Order don't appear much in this book. But it is still a good book. It moves the series along and takes a very interesting twist in the end and i can't wait till the next one to find out what happens.
