BHSV–Missie, The Unread Reader Guest Post + Win A SIGNED “Taken by Midnight”, A “Kiss of Midnight” Audiobook & Bookmarks by Lara Adrian!

50 Lovely Comments!

Recently, I caught up with all eight books in the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian, and one of the things that fascinated me the most about the series were the Breedmates. But what exactly is a Breedmate?

Well, in Kiss of Midnight (Midnight Breed, Book 1), Lucan, leader of the Order, provides this insight during a steamy scene:
And in the instant before his sharp teeth penetrated her fragile skin, his keen vision lit on a tiny birthmark just behind Gabrielle’s ear.
Nearly undetectable, the diminutive mark of a teardrop falling into the cradle of a crescent moon made Lucan rear back in shock. The symbol, so rare among human females, meant only one thing...
He withdrew from the bed as though touched by fire, hissing a furious curse into the dark. Hunger for Gabrielle still pounded through him, even as he grappled with the ramifications of what he might have done to them both.
Gabrielle Maxwell was a Breedmate, a human gifted with unique blood and DNA properties that complemented those of his kind. She and the few numbers like her were queens among other human females. To Lucan’s kind, a race comprised solely of males, this woman was a cherished goddess, giver of life, destined to bond in blood and bear the seed of a new vampire generation.
And in his reckless lust to taste her, Lucan had nearly claimed her for his own.
So Breedmates are special women who have somehow evolved with the Breed race and can carry their sons. They are not vampires, nor can they be turned. They are mortal and their aging slows once they form a Blood Bond with a Breed male and regularly ingests his blood. They also have unique scents and abilities.

So my question today is: Are you a Breedmate?

Well, ask yourself this. What do you smell like?

Breed males seem to really respond to scent. How could they not? They are predators after all. But I have to say, I found the reference to how a Breedmate smelled quite amusing while reading the series. Here's why:  

Breedmate's name | Her scent | Her Blood Bonded:
  • Gabrielle | jasmine | Lucan
  • Tess | cinnamon and vanilla | Dante
  • Elise | heather-and-roses | Tegan
  • Dylan | juniper and honey | Rio
  • Renata | sandalwood and fresh spring rain | Nikolai
  • Claire | vanilla and warm spices | Andreas Reichen
  • Alexandra | wind-and-woods | Kade
Well, damn. That seems like every possible concoction imaginable, yet I'm sure there are more to come as the series continues and we meet more Breedmates. Wouldn't the world of Eau de Toilette be in serious jeopardy if all women had natural scents such as these? If only us regular gals didn't have to spend hundreds to smell as tempting.

But Breedmate qualities don't stop at smells. Breedmates also have keen intelligence and flawless health. Many possessed uncanny extrasensory skills or paranormal talents that are amplified once a Breedmate has blood-bonded with a vampire male.  

The talents of the above mentioned Breedmates include:
  • being able to see through the veil of vampire mind control and being drawn to Vampire lairs
  • ability to heal wounds with touch
  • psychic ability to hear corrupt, dark human intentions
  • being able to see the spirits of Breedmates who have passed away
  • talent for disabling people with mind-blasting
  • ability to dreamwalk
  • natural instinct for knowing when someone is telling the truth or a lie
Do you possess any of these natural talents or abilities? If so, you may be a Breedmate. But if you are still not sure, check for that very unique birthmark on your body, the teardrop falling into the cradle of a crescent moon. If you are unsure what it looks like, check out this post: DemonLover gets a tattoo!

I've gotta admit, I think the Breedmates are pretty freaking ninja. And the best part is they don't fade into the background once their book is over. Each one is very involved in the series, helping and fighting along side the Order throughout the series! It's awesome!

Yup, I'm as much fascinated by the Breedmates as I am about the Breed males.  I have many unanswered, burning questions about Breedmates and pregnancy and their Blood Bonds. As the series continues, I hope to get my curiosities satisfied.

Unfortunately, I'm not a Breedmate, but I sure do wish I was. I wonder what kind of Breed male I'd attract with my natural odor of: Cheeseburger and Fries. Or if my talent, the ability to sit for long periods of time, would be of any use to the Order. Something tells me, not likely, but a girl can dream. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Gabbie says:

    Is it weird that I just spent 10 minutes sniffing myself??

    This was a very fun post. Great Job!

    My scent probably would be of chocolate and cookie dough. I am always snacking on it, it has to be coming out my pores.

    My special ability I would hope is talking to animals. It could be useful to talk to other predators.


  34. Julie S says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! Interesting questions. I would want to smell like lavender. I would love to be able to move super fast.


  35. Tore says:

    Thanks for the giveaway. I have never read the breedmate series so I don't know much about it. I have been wanting to read the series though. Tore923@aol.com

  36. Julie says:

    If I could pick my ability I would definitely pick being able to heal wounds. How cool would that be? I really want to read these books! They are moving to the top of my TBR list :) Thanks for a great giveaway!

  37. My scent would be fresh brewed tea, it's the best scent ever!

  38. Robin says:

    Maybe citrus and pomegranate... I don't know about ability though!

    robindpdx (at) yahoo (dot) com

  39. What would be your Breedmate scent?
    Ummm I guess strawberries and Vanilla since I'm naturally drawn to the scents and therefore all my soaps, perfumes and candles are one of the two scents.

    What would be your Breedmate ability?
    The one I wish I had.. would be stopping time. A realistic ability I do have, I guess I'd say I'm somewhat charismatic. I'm pretty good at finding a place within new groups of people, becoming near the center of things quickly and locating those people who listen to and agree with me. The problem with that though is I don't know how to say no, become over involved and burn out almost as quickly.

  40. Wow this series sounds Hot!!! I would want my scent to be Lavender of some sorts and my ability.... I like the dream walking. I wouldn't want to hear others' toughs or be able to hear corruptness, that would be too disturbing on many levels. I would want dream walking or the ability to read books faster so I can read more than I do :)


  41. Carmen R says:

    My breedmate scent would be the smell of fresh laundry or vanilla

    My ability would be to travel through shadows. Just step into a shadow and I'd pop to where ever i wanted to be

  42. I know some people would NOT want this ability. But I think if I were an empath, that would be kind of cool.

  43. Ren says:

    Umm, since I never read this book before, so I don't have a clue, but I will try to answer :
    - Breedmate scent : Citrus or Lime
    - Breedmate ability : see people past and future just with touching that people.

  44. Breedmate scent: something light, sweet and fruity- apple blossom?
    Breedmate ability: Reading emotions (I've always been very sensitive to other's emotions)

  45. Kanya says:

    This series seems awesome! It's now on my TBR list!
    My breedmate scent would be a very light jasmine and my ability would be to heal without touch.
    Thanks for the giveaway!


  46. My scent would be coconut, because I just love that smell and it screams yummy to me :)


  47. Pam S says:

    Fun post! The Breeds sound really fascinating. Hmm I have that birthmark...ok so mine actually looks more like a mud puddle than a tear drop but if you concentrate hard enough or squint lol...

    smell - I'd want to smell like honeysuckles and cherry blossom after a spring rain

    ability - to dream walk and interpret dreams

    pams00 @ aol.com

  48. Denise Z says:

    I would like my breedmate to smell like vanilla, not the candle perfume like smell, but like the pure extract. As far as ability - I think super strength and empathy. What fun today, thank you for sharing and fir the wonderful giveaway opportunity.
