Blurb: 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.
My Thoughts: Shadow Rider is the first book in a new series by Ms. Feehan and I really enjoyed it. I found the concept of the Shadow Riders fascinating and am looking forward to learning more about them, especially the mechanics of how they travel and their early training in future books. I found the suspense in the plotline enjoyable as well. Having said that, I will comment that I felt the relationship between Francesca and Stephano happened very quickly and bordered on erotica. Now, I enjoy reading erotica also, but felt that for a contemporary paranormal romance, the sex scenes were a few too many and more inline with the erotica genre. I hope that future books in this series are as interesting as this one.
