Upon the Midnight Clear (Dark-Hunter Universe #13)

Ever think Scrooge had it right before the ghosts ruined his life? Meet Aidan O'Conner.
At one time he was a world-renowned celebrity who gave freely of himself and his money without wanting anything in return...until those around him took without asking. Now Aidan wants nothing of the world--or anyone who's a part of it.

When a stranger appears at his doorstep, Aidan knows he's seen her before…in his dreams.

Born on Olympus as a goddess, Leta knows nothing of the human world. But a ruthless enemy has driven her from the world of dreams and into the home of the only man who can help her: Aidan. Her immortal powers are derived from human emotions--and his anger is just the fuel she needs to defend herself…

One cold winter's night will change their lives forever…
Trapped together in a brutal winter storm, Aidan and Leta must turn to the only power capable of saving them--or destroying them both: trust.

Books like this make me wonder why I snuggle up with a cup of coffee and read all day long, sucking books up like there is no tomorrow. You know that I am a huge fan of this series but I find myself not impressed with the second of such dream hunter novels. 

There is a difference in this story that is not normal in the Dark Hunter series. The male is the human in this story. He is not a good one either. It seems that Aidan is a constant complainer. Woo-is-me and then when he finally does get his grove on, we find the same lines being used again and again. 

The female in this story is a goddess. Leta. Together they have to fight Dolor, the god of pain that was summoned by Aidan's brother to kill him because he is jealous of his success.

MAJOR ISSUE!!! One, that is a lame ass reason for a evil god to come and kill someone. Plus, all the other male characters in this series have had some of the most horrible acts of vengeance, treachery and or murder performed on them. 

Second issue....We are back to the meet and mate issue I had with the first book of this series. The two lovers are trapped in a snow storm with a night to defeat Dolor. 

Okay, so the good thing was. This was a short book and it gets me one step closer to the 700 page monster that is Acheron. 

Also, Aidan has a lot of money...share owe me after this book. (140 some pages)
