Thrill of the Night by Mina Carter

Thrill of the Night by Mina Carter
* I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Part time diner waitress and hotel manager, Gwen’s days are filled with serving locals and making sure the sleepy back-road motel doesn’t have a crisis of epic proportions…like running out of clean towels. She’s a woman with a routine, a cleaning roster and that’s the way she likes it.

But Gwen is a woman with a past. A past which involves guns, knives and a whole lot of weird shit like vampires and werewolves. A past she gave up three years ago for the mediocrity of normal life.

She’s not sure she’s ready to go back to it but then a mysterious customer turns up in her diner. Hot and sexy as all hell, he sparks all kinds of erotic fantasies in Gwen’s sex-starved brain.

When she finds him bleeding from a were’s claws, can Gwen walk away? Or will she give into her carnal urges and risk being pulled back into her old life?

Gwen has had enough of the nomad life of a hunter.  She has settled down in a small town where she works at the dinner and lives in a motel room rent free.  She has convinced herself that she is happy with her new life, until the handsome stranger walked into the diner during her shift.  She can’t get the stranger out of her fantasies, um mind.

Even now, Gwen is always in hunter mode when she is alone outside.  As she is walking home she spots some bloody handprints that could only belong to another hunter.  To her surprise the injured hunter turns out to be the handsome stranger from the diner.

I enjoyed this story and the interaction between Gwen and Jasen but was a little lost at first.  I would’ve liked a little more back story about Gwen and the hunter profession though.

It seems Jasen has his own ideas about he wants to do to Gwen and she is perfectly fine with them.  The scene in the hotel room was very sexy, especially when the guns were involved.  I would love to follow up with the characters and see where they go from here.

Overall I enjoyed Thrill of the Night and would’ve loved for it to be longer.  I give it 3½ Flaming Hearts.
