About Lara (From her website) –
As a child, Lara Adrian used to sleep with the covers up around her neck, afraid she might become the midnight prey of deadly vampires. Later on, under the influence of Bram Stoker and Anne Rice, she had to wonder if her fear wasn’t actually something else: a secret desire to walk in a darker world, to live a dangerous and sensual dream with a man of seductive, preternatural power. It is that twining of fear and desire that fuels Lara’s own fantasies today, and the idea that she explores in her New York Times bestselling Midnight Breed series of vampire romance novels from Bantam Dell Books.

With an ancestry stretching back to the Mayflower and the court of King Henry VIII, Lara Adrian lives with her husband in New England, surrounded by centuries-old graveyards, hip urban comforts, and the endless inspiration of the broody Atlantic Ocean.

Lara’s Midnight Breed series is available in mass market paperback and e-book through Bantam Dell, and in limited edition hardcover through Doubleday Book Club, Rhapsody Book Club, Book of The Month, and the Science Fiction Book Club. Unabridged audio editions are available through Tantor Media, Amazon, iTunes, etc. Lara’s new releases regularly appear on all of the key bestseller lists including: The New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Indiebound, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc. There are more than 2 million copies of the Midnight Breed novels in print in the United States.

Additionally, translation rights have been licensed in more than 16 countries, including Germany, where the two most recent releases have both hit #1 on the Stern bestseller list and spent multiple weeks in the top ten slots on Der Spiegel, peaking at #3. The series has sold more than 500,000 copies in Germany. In Italy, the January 2011 release of Book 4 of the series hit three bestseller lists (La Repubblica at #5; TTL at #7; and Corriere della Sera at #13). The series has currently sold over 100,000 copies in Italy. United Kingdom publisher Constable & Robinson reports more than 100,000 copies of the series in print thus far, with each title returned to press multiple times.
In the USA, Lara Adrian’s new releases regularly appear on all of the key bestseller lists including: The New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Indiebound, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc.
