Ryder and Kinsey! They couldn’t be more perfect for each other! Both are computer geniuses. Their chemistry is off the charts. Angst and unrequited love galore! Secrets, lies, and more mysteries. I think at one point I wanted to smack my jelly donut eating Ryder! Lol! I felt a roller coaster of emotions with this one. I wanted too just scream at them both and say quit being so stubborn and admit that you love each other! I have so many theories running through my head and even still have no idea what the future is going to hold with the Dragon Kings.
Kinsey fell madly in love years ago but Ryder shattered her heart and left her without a word. Then one night in Edinburgh years later all hell breaks loose and the streets are littered with death. Kinsey comes face to face with the man she thought she knew and is terrified yet feels betrayed. Nothing in the world is as it seems. So she did what any sane women would do. She ran from him. Even after all those years apart as soon as she sees him, all the sparks and emotions she has denied and pushed deep for so long come rushing back full force. Her hurt from his rejection and fear of the unknown have left thick bitter walls around her heart. Ryder will have to work hard to earn her trust and start trying to fix the hurt he caused her. While being at Dreagan, Kinsey realizes that it could have been possible for them to have the future that they had always talked about together, and it was his choice not to tell her the truth about himself. He could have come back for her, but he didn’t.

Years ago before any of the Dragon Kings had even known it was possible to find their mate, Ryder met his Kinsey. He longed to have a future with her but as enemies tried to expose them as dragons, he left behind the only women that he had ever loved and it tore him to pieces. He left her to keep her safe, but little did he know it didn’t matter his enemies where closer than he realized. When he is given hope of having a second chance with her his greatest fear of all happens … she runs from him.

The Dragon Kings are in the middle of a war with the Fae and trust doesn’t come easy. Humans are already watching their every move at Dreagan and Kinsey’s arrival is very suspicious. Another betrayal could very well be the end to the Kings. Far more is going on than any of them realize. Rhi is finally finding her some much deserved happiness but it may just bring her more trouble and more pain in the end. Their enemies are close and seem to always be one step ahead. Ryder will have to let go of his fear and learn to trust Kinsey, even though the evidence looks damning. Torn from his loyalty to his fellow Kings and the love he once let go, he may realize too late her innocence and lose his chance at love with her forever.

Release Day Blitz ~ Dark Alpha’s Claim ~ Donna Grant ~ A Reaper Novel ~ Review!

Dark Alpha’s Claim 
(Reaper Series, #1)
by Donna Grant
 
cd1a8-book2bblurb
There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I am coming for you…
My whole existence is based on taking what Death wants. Born to eliminate Fae guilty of unforgivable crimes, my reckless, wild nature makes me the perfect assassin to carry out Death’s bidding. I’ve seen more sinister and violent dealings than anyone could ever imagine. But it was the sight of her face that stopped me cold. I’ve never wanted a woman-never mind a human-so badly; never felt my heart, hardened by death, burn brighter and hotter until it burst into flames. She is everything I desire. The kind of woman that compels you to stake your claim on her, to let the world know that she’s yours. A Reaper saving her life will only attract danger, but I vow to protect her at all costs from the Fae that hunt her, and keep safe the woman who has claimed me, body and soul.

I am so excited about this new series!! I absolutely loved the Dark Sword, Dark Warriors & Dark Kings! This new series is about the Reapers and they are connected to Donna’s other series!! We heard whispers about them in the last few Dragon King books and they are finally here! The Warriors and Dragon Kings are gonna have some parts to play in the books to come, because it all takes part in the same world! How can it get any better than that!
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.
This book can be read as a stand alone, and will make you want to read the other Series if you haven’t already! =)

3979f-excerpt
Baylon was sitting on the steps outside the library watching the mortals when he saw her. She stood out amongst the humans like a star in the midnight sky.
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.
“It is.”
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.

Nights-Blaze-168x279That one simple kiss slayed him as nothing in his very, very long life had ever done. It physically hurt him to release her and turn his back on everything she offered, but it was for the best.

A KING WHO WALKS IN DARKNESS

The Rhys who has existed for centuries is gone. Stripped of his ability to shift forms, Rhys can no longer embody the majestic, powerful dragon he was at birth. Cut off from his heritage by one of his own, this Dragon King must remain a man, haunted by demons who torment his every waking moment. The darkness would swallow him whole…except a woman so beautiful and haunted becomes the one beam of light in his world…

A DESIRE THAT WILL NOT BE DENIED

Lily Ross is taking the first step in building a new life for herself. Still reeling from a relationship that nearly broke her spirit, Lily is wary of her attraction to brawny, brooding Rhys. The passion burning so brightly between them is a potent temptation, but any entanglement is destined to end in disaster. Yet when a spectre from Lily’s past threatens their growing bond, Rhys is forced to choose with his heart, or lose this woman who has become his one chance at salvation…

Lily and Rhys are fantastic!
I love Lily! She is a strong women on the brink of something far greater than her troubled past. With the help of one devastatingly handsome dragon she will find the confidence and passion she needs to have the life she has run from for years.
Lily has felt an overwhelming connection to Rhys since she first came to work at Dreagan. The only thing is that playful and carefree Rhys always has a different beautiful women on his arm, so Lily has resigned herself to longing from afar. Until Rhys completely shocks her by kissing her like she has never been kissed before. Her fear of the past has kept her from living her life and is threatening her growing love for Rhys. Since Rhys’s disappearance, she can tell something in him has changed. He looks to be carrying the world on his shoulders. He is not the same as he was, he is … Darker.
Rhys after being injured and having lost his ability to shift to his true form is feeling angry yet useless in the fight to uncover the enemies trying to expose all at Dreagan. As he spends more time with Lily, he discovers there is a lot more to the women than her baggy clothes and shyness than meets the eye. For the first time in all his years on earth he has never felt more alive than when Lily is in his arms. Even having lost a core piece of himself, Lily is slowly filling in the pieces.
After fighting his desire for so long to be with Lily and wanting to claim her as his mate, Rhys is finally ready to make her his but it may be too late as the past comes back to haunt them all.
