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...

I absolutely loved everything about SHADOW RIDER. I didn't want to put it down and when it was over I raced to Goodreads and the authors website to see if I could find out when the next book would be coming out and I was so sad when I couldn't find out any information about it. Hopefully I won't have to wait too long to get my next fix.

I have absolutely nothing to complain about when it comes to SHADOW RIDER. I thought every scene was interesting and I thought all the characters brought a little something extra to the story. I honestly can't wait to learn more about each of Stefano's family members. The action scenes were both highly entertaining and full of surprises. I loved the world and the different parts that made up the shadow community. What an interesting ability. The family has a hard job, but they do it the right way in my opinion.

Let's talk about the relationship of the story. Stefano comes off really strong and he's definitely over protective, but he loves with everything he has and treats Francesca like a queen. Francesca is hiding a lot and takes a while to open up, accept the new world and relationship she found herself in and really show how much she cares, but when she does she jumps all in. Together Stefano and Francesca are so much more than I can even explain. They complement each other perfectly and are HOT in the bedroom.

I can't wait to see what will come next for this series. If book two is anything like SHADOW RIDER I predict that it will be a must have series on my bookshelf. CAN'T WAIT for more!

I gave it 5/5 stars
