The #1 New York Times bestselling “queen of paranormal romance” is back with a sexy new series starring a Chicago crime family that hides a dark, mystical secret...

Whether it’s fast cars or fast women, Stefano Ferraro gets what he wants. When he’s not fodder for the paparazzi, he commands Ferraro family businesses—both legitimate and illegitimate.

While their criminal activity is simply a rumor yet to be proven, no one knows the real truth. The Ferraros are a family of shadow riders capable of manipulating light and dark, an ability Stefano thought ran in his family alone—until now…

With little left to her name, Francesca Cappello has come to Chicago in hopes of a new life. She wasn’t expecting to attract the attention of a man with primal hunger in his eyes, driven to claim her as his to protect and to please. And if he discovers her secret, it could ruin her...

Marie's Thoughts
Holy hotness, this book is fabulous! A woman running for her life, a murderous “gangster” (for lack of a better term), and a mysteriously sexy hero…how can you go wrong? Then you mix in action, thrills, some of the steamiest sex I’ve ever read, and a bit of romance, and you have the perfect cocktail for one hell of a ride.

Christine Feehan has been a hot and cold author for me in the past. Some of her books are amazing, and some feel like they just weren’t given the dedication they deserved, and fell kind of flat. So when the opportunity to read Shadow Rider arose, I figured I’d go for it. It’s a 50/50 shot, right?  Boy am I glad I did!

The story takes right off, introducing us to a wonderful back story and strong, darkly delicious characters whose flaws make them absolute literary perfection. Ms. Feehan’s imagination takes us into a brilliantly imagined world and helps to build a wonderful tale of horror, romance and exciting fun!

I am thrilled that this is only book number one in the series…because I cannot wait to see what is going to happen in the stories to come.

I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book gifted to the blog, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
