Book CoverVeena’s review of Shadow Reaper (Shadow Riders, Book 2) by Christine Feehan
Paranormal Romance published by Berkley 30 May 17

Now that eldest brother and head of the Ferraro family Stefano has found the one woman meant to be his, there is hope for his generation of shadow riders.  Next up is dark, smoldering, troubled Ricco Ferraro with his love for Shibari and his desire to find a rope model to help soothe his spirits.

Ricco had almost given up hope of finding the perfect rope model when she walked in. With her Asian features she soothed something deep in Ricco’s soul and, most importantly, her shadow connects with him.  Can both of them find a way to handle the blackness of their pasts and find a future together?

It’s quickly apparent that she’s the little girl he once sold his soul to save. Unfortunately, her life has not exactly been a bed of roses. Brought up in hate, deprived of her true name, she has survived against all odds with a sweetness of spirit and compassion.  She’s been planted in Ricco’s home to search for his vulnerability and take him down, but it soon turns out that she truly is a white hat and determined to save Ricco.

This story takes unexpected twists and turns as Ricco finally deals with the darkness of his past and confronts old enemies, in order to free himself to walk in the light with his rightful mate by his side.  Readers will enjoy how the story unfolds and, of course, in true Christine Feehan style, there are enough steamy and erotic scenes to keep readers happy along the way.

Just when Ricco has given up hope, he meets her—a mysterious woman whose shadow connects with his.
