I was sucked in from the first page as always with the one of a kind world that Donna weaves for us! Baylor and Jordyn are great together and their chemistry is off the charts!
Seven men gave their souls to Death more than two thousand years ago for a chance for vengeance after betrayals. They are called Reapers. They are judge, jury and executioners that enforce justice among the Fae, Light and Dark. They have rules that they must follow at all cost and the number one rule is no attachments and do not fall in love.
The Reapers find themselves hunted by an unknown enemy that throws them all off-balance and for the first time question all that they know.
They have orders to kill all the half Fae and it goes against everything in them to hurt an innocent.
Jordyn has always been drawn to the lore of the Fae, until it has become an obsession. When she lays eyes on Baylor, she knows he is something more. He stirs a longing in her she never imagined she could feel. Baylor has sworn to protect Jordyn at all cost, even if he has to defy Death. Having more than one night can only lead in disaster but his enemy has set his sights on her and Baylor will risk it all to keep her alive.
Edinburgh is not safe with all the unsolved murders and Dark Fae trying to take over Scotland and now the Reapers have their own deadly fight to survive.
Her beauty was undeniable, catching the attention of everyone around her – though she didn’t seem to notice. He liked the way her dark blond hair was cut short and trendy with it swept to the side in the front. A pixie cut, he thought he heard a human call it.
The mortal was tall and thin, with every curve just the right size. Her turquoise eyes were large, and there was a hint of innocence about them that drew him again and again.
She wore large earrings that brought more attention to her beautiful oval face. Her brows were thin and arched delicately over her eyes. When she smiled, she dazzled. Her lips were just wide and full enough to be alluring.
He’d laughed when he heard her mumble “jerk” to the man who hadn’t held the door for her.
He knew immediately that she had Fae blood. It wasn’t just her beauty. There was an air about her that was as distinctive as a beacon. And he was happy he found her before the others.
Baylon waited outside the library for another glimpse of her. She walked out a short time later carrying a large book. She was entranced by it. Several people had to walk around her because she wasn’t looking where she was going— she was too intent on reading.
He wanted to see what kind of book was so interesting. When he put himself in her path, he never expected to look down at a tome all about the Fae.
His shock was quickly replaced with a blinding and penetrating desire when they bumped into each other. Then she looked up at him.
He was completely taken by her, tumbling into incredible turquoise eyes.
If he didn’t speak, he was liable to do something stupid—like kiss her. His gaze lowered to her lips, an ache gripping him, begging him to take her. To taste her.
“Sorry,” she said.
Her Scots accent was soft and lilting. Beautiful, just as she was. What was it about this half-Fae that held him enthralled so? “Must be an interesting book.”
Her gaze slowly raked over him, heating his blood to such a degree that he fisted his hands to keep from touching her. Didn’t she realize she was playing with fire?
If her gaze wasn’t so guileless, Baylon would have suspected she was proficient in teasing a man to such a degree. But it was the need in her own eyes that made his cock instantly hard.
He glanced down at the page she was reading. “Fae, huh?”
“Research,” she said breathlessly.
Warning bells went off in Baylon’s head. Research? Did she know she had Fae blood? It was time he found out more about her. Besides, he was going to make sure none of the other Reapers found her.
“Good luck with your research.” He bowed his head and walked around her.
He then stopped and turned to watch her, wondering if she would look back at him. To his exasperation, she didn’t.
