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…

Christine Feehan has done it again! A great start to a thrilling new series! I want a Ferraro of my very own! Whew! This was one scorching hot book! The chemistry between Stefano and Francesca was off the charts! I am also counting down the days for the next one!
Many think the untouchable Ferraro family are criminals that are above the law but they are something all together different. More lethal. For hundreds of years their family have protected the innocent. They are assassins that make right the wrong and seek justice for evil.
Stefano is the leader of the Ferraro family and can be called many things. Tall, dark and handsome. Intense, loyal to a fault, and most of all deadly. He is a shadow rider trained in lethal combat from an early age. He is able to ride the shadows and slip in and out unnoticed. The perfect assassin.
The Ferraro’s are well-known for the spot light. It’s not unusual to see them have women on each arm, until Francesca Capello walks into their lives and everything changes. For the first time Stefano’s siblings Vittorio, Ricco, Giovannie, Taviano, and their sister Emmanuelle all have hope for a future. They see their brother’s connection and the powerful drawl of finding their true soulmate. Shadow riders are rare and often they are forced to marry to continue their line out of obligation instead of love. Now they are given hope of finding the one rider that their shadow recognizes and the chance of having more than just duty rule their lives.
When Stefano’s shadow touches Francescas he knows she is the one and he will do anything to have her. He has put all of himself in dealing out justice to those that deserve it that he has lost a part of himself, but Francesca fills that space and brings laughter back to his dark life.
Francesca is homeless and on the run from a killer. Making a new start in Chicago is her last hope. Last thing she needs is to get involved with a man like Stefano Ferraro. He is scary as hell but when he touches her, he ignites a fire that refuses to be put out. For the first time since her life turned into a nightmare, she feels safe when she is in his arms. After all her time running, the past has finally caught up with her. The Ferraro family is working to give her the justice she deserves, but with enemies all around seeking to destroy them. Francesca is having a hard time trying to stay alive!
**I know a lot of fans will want to know this and are concerned about the hero being to harsh because Aleksei from Dark Promises was very, very dominate.**
I think Stefano was the right amount of everything! Sweet and dominate. . He is in no way abusive and doesn’t do anything that Francesca didn’t love. He likes control and Francesca doesn’t mind giving it to him. She actually has him wrapped around her finger lol
I think this book had more sex in it than her Dark Series! Stefano may like it rough in bed but out of it he is a complete sweetheart with a heart of gold!
