Midnight Breed Week & Giveaway (US): Meet Dante

Name: Dante Malabranche

Physical Description: Dante is the image of a Greek god, well built, dark hair with medium length. His physical strength radiates off of him in waves, visible to any who cross his path. He is ruthless, strong, and fierce.

Special Powers: Dante is clairvoyant – he is able to see the future death of his breedmate and himself, just as his family before him.

Personality Type/Quirks: Dante is the type of guy that likes things to go his way or the highway. It’s pretty much his way and whoever else disagrees be damned. Dante also loves his Doc Martens… nothing like a pair of sturdy shoes under your feet. Lastly, he is forever a gentleman, even when deadly hardware and an aura of danger wash in visible waves off his huge body.

Spotlighted in: Kiss of Crimson (Midnight Breed series #2) by Lara Adrian

Mated to: Veterinarian Tess Culver

Memorable Quotes:

A long silence answered, and for a moment Dante wondered if the agent had actually slunk away as he hoped. No such luck.
“I understand how you feel, Dante.”
“Do you.”
“I think so, yes. Now I think I understand a lot of things that I didn‘t before.”
“Well, good for you. Fucking brilliant of you, former Agent Chase. Write it up in one of your pointless reports and maybe your buddies in the Darkhavens will pin a goddamn medal of commendation on you. Harvard finally clues in on something.”
~ Dante to Sterling Chase, Kiss of Crimson

Extra Info

Dante and his Breed brethren reside in Darkhavens, or in the case of the Order, their Headquarters. Dante’s kind, the Breed, is a hot-blooded hybrid mix of Homo-sapiens and deadly other-world creatures. They aren’t the typical gothic vampires; they are neither undead nor devil-spawned. Since Dante and his brothers are hybrids, they are able to mate with certain human women and produce offspring, and must consume human blood as their life source.

Dante is of the old world, one of the best warriors of the Order. He is an enigma, the alpha and the omega. Few would dare to cross his path of justice, and none make it out unscathed.  Dante despises the blood thirst element of his kind, an existence of loneliness with no future, and lives and fights like there is no tomorrow. However, as fate would have it, wounded during a battle, Dante lands right in front of the beautiful Tess Culver. Suffering from extreme blood loss, hallucinating, and out of humor, Dante drinks from the first human he comes into contact with. Little does he know, that one selfish act seals his fate, and hers.
