Four Star Review for Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn by Author Alexandria Infante from Eternal Press...
Review by Amanda Pierce;
First off I'd just like to say wow!
This is a book about Arieanna, a junior high school History teacher, who gets pulled into this insane world of werewolves, Egyptian myths and vampires. Auron is the man who has been secretly protecting her for months; only she doesn't know it. So, what happens when he is forced to show himself to her?
I completely enjoyed this book; there were many great aspects to it. I like the fact that the author incorporated the Egyptian myths ( I'm half Egyptian so that was boss for me).
There were so many characters that I thoroughly enjoyed. I also liked that the author broke the rules and used more than one POV. Danni, Arieanna's cousin is hilarious, and she gives you some of that Urban quality; and the fact that the main character Arieanna calls her Ghetto was awesomely funny too.
Having said that, the old language the author uses to portray the accents of the main male character Auron and his Foretag members might be a little daunting for some, but I loved it; because it helped me remember the characters were in actuality Scotsmen.
For those who love adventure, romance with a bite, vamps, werewolves and witches, this is a really good read. This is quality writing.
Lastly, I liked the character Auron. He was very charming and at most times very funny. He proved that he would do whatever he had to do to protect the women he loved.
Three & 1/2 Stars for Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn

This is a book about Arie, a school teacher who is pulled into a world of vampires. Auron is the man who has been secretly protecting her for months. So, what happens when he is forced to show himself to her?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book; there were many great aspects. I do feel that with so much going on, as captivating as it was at times it caused some confusion. There were so many characters and so many names, and tales of the past, which made it hard to remember exactly what is going on at all times. Having said that, for those who love adventure or paranormal vampire books this is still a really good read. This is quality writing with a nice tone. Lastly, I liked the character Auron. He was very charming and at most times truly amusing.

I just read
"Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn" by Alexandria Infante'.
I must say beforehand that romance novels are not really my cup of tea, so; I will sound a little biased. The only real drawback I saw in the novel was the plot. A Werewolf is sent to bodyguard a Mundi who unknowingly is the key to an ancient secret. I know vampires and werewolves are hot right now, but the plot was just too cliche' for me.
That being said, Ms. Infante's character development skills are excellent. I loved her heroine. There were many times in reading that I found myself laughing out loud, wondering what she would say next....

Abraham Lincoln once reviewed a book by saying, For those who like this kind of book, this is the kind of book they will like.
Teaching between Midnight and Dawn will definitely appeal to
a certain kind of taste. This is a book for those who want to graduate from
Twilight. Anyone intrigued by the human -werewolf romance theme but who thinks
there ought to be some actual sex scenes after all those smoldering glances at
each other, has just found the right book. Readers excited by paranormal romance and who want a story that moves
quickly will find this a good novel for that plane ride or lazy afternoon at

When did you start writing, and was there a significant
event that prompted you to do so?
I love the Paranormal! Some of my favorite authors are
Laurel K Hamilton, Kim Harrison and Charlaine Harris. However, I didn?t see
myself reflected in the works that I read, and if I did it was a side
character, a supporting character, or a villain; so I thought I'd write my own.
Being multi-racial (Puerto Rican, Cuban, Native American, Irish and
African-American) I wanted to see a character like me, and the fact that this
is rare spurred me on.
Authors like me tend to get pigeon holed into one specific genre like Minority literature, Latina, African-American, or Ethnic, who hardly ever move out of that; and I think that this is completely unfair. I hoped by writing what I believe the genre should encompass, people would see the book for the story and negate the race of the character; that being, anyone could place themselves in the shoes of the character, not just someone of a minority background....
Anne Hofmann (Hacienda Hts, CA USA) - A short review on a great book!! This review is from:Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn (Kindle Edition)
Okay, so I know that you can read the description above so I
will not go into details about the book...because really you should read it to
find all this out!!! This book is very well written, and the author gives great
detail and explanation of the history sounding the plot and main characters.
She also gives accurate historical information so if you like history, and
supernatural, and romance then this is the book for you. As a lover of all things
historical and romantic in nature, I loved reading this book. I could not put
it down... and yes I know that the paperback copy is expensive so if you can
find a way to download the kindle software, and don't mind reading an
electronic copy then that is the frugal way to go.
Neko - Not your ordinary supernatural novel!
Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn
This book takes history and myths from around the world and spins it all into an entrancing story filled with romance, adventure, and action. The writing style really draws you into this world, and the characters are so likeable that you can't help but cheer for Arieanna and Auron as they face dangers. It's definitely a great read!

Saucy and Vivid!
Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn
Very intriguing and creative take on the classical love story (boy meets girl). The characters are raw and intense. Loved the imagery and the authors ability to invite the reader into the main characters Universe. The historical background is detailed and helpful. Simply brilliant!
yesenia - Way better then most supernatural novels!!!
Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn
This is the best book I have read in years! I can't recommend it enough! It is fabulous, and I think they should make a movie out of it. The story grabs you and doesn't let you go, especially when the characters are so sensual to each other. The Scottish Lycans are awesome. I liked the accents that the characters have. Personally I think this book is WAY BETTER THEN TWILIGHT! Once you have read it, you will understand why! I loved it!
