They are called the Demons, one of the elusive Nightwalker races living in shadow and struggling for survival against their human enemies. Their proudest warrior is Elijah, a man who bends for nothing and no one...until one woman brings him to his knees...
Some Feelings You Just Can't Fight
He is known as the Warrior Captain--a master of every weapon, a fierce soldier sworn to protect his kind. Powerful, relentless, merciless, Elijah has always won every battle he's ever taken on--until now. Ambushed by necromancers, he is left for dead only to be discovered by the woman who could very well deliver the final blow...Sienna, the Lycanthrope Queen.
With three centuries of warring, little more than a decade of uneasy peace has existed between the Lycanthropes and Elijah's people. Now, after a lifetime of suspicion, the warrior in Elijah is consumed with a different battle--winning Siena's heart by giving her pleasure beyond all boundaries. What starts as attraction and arousal soon burns into a passion with consequences that will echo through the ages for both their people. And as would-be enemies become inseparable lovers, another threat approaches, one with the power to destroy them all...
Surrender to the night.
Cover:  Again I wish these covers were different.  I just don't see the point of plastering a naked guys back on the cover.  
This series started off so promising but for me, they've started to go down hill.  I still liked the overall romance between Elijah and Sienna but the writing for me just became boring.  It was hard to concentrate on it, I found myself re-reading sentences.
Elijah was an interesting character, his warrior personality and general hotness was fun to read but Sienna really annoyed me.  I understood her initial reluctance to mate with Elijah (worrying about him being accepted by her people & thinking he might want to take her crown) but it was far too drawn out.
Overall I give Elijah 3/5.  Again it just didn't match up to the first book and I was left feeling disappointed.  I do have book 4 Damien on my Kindle which I will continue.
