Vittorio s power is in his voice He can use it to compel people to do as he wishes or defuse a tense situation or calm down the woman he loves He also has a seductive undertone that leaks through no

opinion of the book or the content of my review.Shadow Warrior is the most recent addition to the Shadow Rider series and I adored this book so much There is something so endearing about this series and how this family loves and protects one another This is book number four and we see some depths of this family as we see other developments with the youngest sister Emma and her love interest as she battles with herself when he betrays her but their love is a forbidden love and so I am eager for her book so BADLY Crossing my fingers it will be the next one.Shadow Warrior begins with our hero, Vittorio Ferraro, who is the bad boy of the group And with each of his siblings finding love he wonders if it will ever happen to him But while in the club, he finds members of the family that are their enemies trying to kidnap an innocent woman, a woman he finds out that is his fated match, but she takes a bullet for him and Vittorio sees his chance to help his lady out, and find out if they will have what his siblings have with their spouses But there is also a danger involving Grace Grace, has always felt drawn to Vittorio but she has always known that their worlds are so far apart from one another Grace grew up in foster care, but there was one boy, where they protected each other when the were both abused in a foster home But her brother turned out not completely sane, and as they both got older, Grace began to fear him And now she finds herself with the aid of the Ferraro family when her brother tried to sell her into sexual slavery to pay off her gambling debts But with the passion and endearing love blooming between Vittorio and Grace, her brother wants the man she adores deadThis was such a whirlwind of suspense and sensuality and boy every time I read Christine Feehan I fall in love ever with her books I will say that this book really shows her true power in storytelling and I think I am still in a withdrawl of sorts and been focusing on rereading my favorites from this author I adore how she writes alpha males, they get to me every single dang time and I LOVE it I will say that if you love alpha males, then this is definitely a must read for you I really had a blast with this book and was so sad when it ended because this series is one of my favorites from this author although quite frankly I love just about every book I have read from her The love story that develops is sexy, passionate and has its moments of poignant emotion that is displayed throughout the story I really love seeing a character that grows up in foster care, especially seeing how strong and courageous she is and how she has risen above the abuse she has suffered all of these years and become such a sucess She has worked her own career and kept her important hidden from her crazy brother even She works with an event planner, but she is the heart and soul of the business and her business partner is of a cover so her brother doesn t target her closest friend business partner We see a bit of their friendship here, not too much I would have liked to see of their friendship though , and I love how great they work together.The ferraro family also endears me every time I read them and that is no different with this book here We do plenty of drama with Eloisa the mother and boy with each book I begin to like her less and less She is a piece of work, But you see how the siblings really come together and support one another no matter what I love seeing their loyalty and affection for one another flag 15 likesLike see review May 07, 2019 Kayla Brunson rated it

let alone be comfortable with the lifestyle that he wants.Grace was strong and I honestly don t know how she didn t crack under being around Hayden for so long He trapped her and kept her in fear So much fear that I was scared she wouldn t let Vittorio help her heal and find peace in living her life She came out of her shell and gave him the submission he needed.The relationship between these two was sensual and such a joy to read about Vittorio needed someone who would let him dominate the relationship Let him be in control in the bedroom and make choices for their life Grace gave herself to him and it was great when you saw her beginning to trust him and gave him that power However, I did have some issues Feehan spends A LOT of pages dedicated to sex between these two and repeating things that have already been covered in previous chapters This book could have been a whole shorter I like sex scenes as much as the next girl, but like every other book in this series, it s drawn out and not really needed.This was a good addition of the Shadow series and I really need a book on Emmanuelle really soon I received an ARC via NetGalley for an honest review.

With his natural protectiveness, and a hint of arrogance that he could completely back up his full court press was irresistible But Grace was no fragile flower, so she made sure she was strong when

and demands she be released into his custody This is the 4th installment in the Shadow series that can be read as a standalone Each installment features a different member of the Ferraro family who are paranormal beings able to shift and ride shadows and dark tubes in their ongoing fight to dispense justice to those who have escaped the legal system for their crimes Vittorio Grace They have chemistry though the actual story is a slow burn buildup sort of thing The story does includes adult content erotica scenes that for all practical purposes can be tagged as BDSM though the author goes out of her way avoid traditional BDSM norms I guess and this is my own opinion doing that doesn t antagonize readers who have issues with BDSM or maybe it s a lack of research by the author into BDSM I just noticed that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, one can t label it a bald eagle with any real believeability It s for that reason and my own problematic issue in the way the erotic scenes were portrayed that I downrated the story as a whole Secondary characters Characters featured in previous installments return in varied degrees but do not detract from a potential reader enjoyment if one hasn t read previous I am so looking forward to Emmanuelle s story as the author has thrown a wrench love triangle teaser that has me intrigued My issues The story does have voids and incomplete details though they are minor The biggest irritant is the prolonged vague mystery teaser regarding Vittorio that transitions into an easy fix sort of solution That and the fact that the actual relationship was obvious as a BDSM lifestyle situation no matter how it was presented The thing is that is a dangerous situation as someone feeling they fit and would like to seek out a similar relationship doesn t have all the facts A solid read that is easy to follow and enjoyable to read Recommended for fans of this author and series as long as it s realized this is a fictional fantasy

paranormal, it is different and fantastic Refresher Shadow riders have the ability to blend themselves to the shadows wherever they are, making themselves invisible to anyone They have been in existence for centuries, with all members of their families trained to use those abilities The family runs a legitimate business they use their ability to help others in need to solve various problems and dispense justice They are an extremely powerful and close knit family that is totally loyal to one another, also protecting the people that in live in their community.Vittorio Ferraro is our hero in Shadow Warrior We meet Vittorio when he is privately thinking that his brothers have all found their mates, but accepts the fact that this will never happen to him Vittorio is tough, dominant and knows no woman would ever meet his standards When he feels vibes that something is wrong and pulling him to go to their club, he comes across some gang members in the club, who are not allowed there He then tries to come the rescue of the gangsters pushing a young guy into giving them his girl as collection for a big debt and all hell breaks loose The girl is seriously hurt, and Vittorio manages to bring in help, and get the girl to the hospital.Grace Murphy, our heroine, wakes up in the hospital after having major surgeries, and sees Vittorio, whom she only knew from afar As she goes in and out of conscious, she over hears him tell the doctor and nurses that he is her fianc e, and with each passing day, still unable to communicate well, Grace sees that Vittorio stays with her constantly He tells her he will take care of her, and to use the guise of being his fianc e to keep her safe But Vittorio knows that Grace, unbeknownst to her, is a shadow rider, and his mate he has no intention of letting her go, but has to convince Grace that she is meant for him.When he gets to take her home, with all the Ferraro s working together to keep her safe from the boy who grew up with her in foster homes, and is like a brother but a very dangerous and mentally ill person The entire Ferraros are pulled into trying not only to keep Grace safe, but also to keep all members of their family safe from this crazy violent brother They also have to deal with the Saldi crime family, who started this all by having some of their men at the club and involved in the shooting There is a lot of violence, and the Ferraros are determined to not become involved in a war.While this is going on, Grace slowly recuperates, and over a short period of time, she finds herself falling in love with Vittorio, as well as getting used to his dominance Grace was a great heroine, and even though she put up with her bad evil brother , she also helped co run a successful business Vittorio is beside himself that this beautiful woman is made for him and though he is dominant, he is determined to marry her Their romance heats up fast, with steamy sex scenes More into this shortly I did like Grace and Vittorio together, as they made a great couple I love the whole Ferraro family, and the premise of this series is awesome I look forward to Emme s story, and frankly can t stand the mother This was also a very sensual romance, as Feehan had a lot of sex scenes between our couple The intense pulse pounding story was exciting, but as I stated earlier, I did feel that the sex scenes a bit too many If you enjoy the many steamy sexual scenes that possibly takes forefront to the story, then this is perfect for you But if you prefer story, and a bit less sex, be warned What follows is an exciting adventure, where both Grace is in constant danger, and Vittorio is desperate to find the man who threatens her life with the entire Ferraro family working hard to help find him What I love the most about this series is all the wonderful characters that Feehan has created I love all of the Ferrero s, and those they fall in love with that join the family They are an awesome family, with amazing abilities that make this so much fun.Shadow Warrior is a captivating, exciting, suspenseful, action packed story, with a wonderful couple that steams the pages The storyline involving the Saldi s remains open, and I suspect will play a large part in the next book This is a fantastic paranormal series that you should be reading, and very well written by Christine Feehan.BarbThe Reading

story, she has been locked in a trunk of a car, to be delivered to murderous, misogynistic thugs by her loser, dependent step brother as a payment for his gambling debt Grace does not go submissively she literally comes out the trunk of the car like a tornado When Vittorio intervenes, Grace throws herself in the path of a bullet meant for him From this point, the story is a rush to save Grace s life and take down the villains who think of nothing to take a woman for their own vile use Vittorio spends the rest of the book caring for the independent Grace who does not want to put anyone else in the path of her psycho brother Vittorio really has to convince Grace, who runs her own successful business, that Vittorio s image as a wastrel billionaire playboy is a front for what his family actually does, bring justice to human monsters.My heart was hammering the entire book, the focus of the story was on the resolution of who is actually behind the sabotage attacks on the Ferraro family, stopping a sociopathic killer who has held Grace s movements as near hostage, and the family dynamics that threaten to be a catalyst of a war between the Ferraro s and their long time nemesis, the Saldi crime family.I loved this book, with Grace recuperating from a gunshot injury, there was no consummation scene until well past the hallway point of the story, Vittorio was focused on courting Grace and being open enough to gain her trust For me, heroines make or break whether I love the story because it s a really fine line for authors to make the female appear strong without being a wild eyed shrew or a needy, traumatized doormat Too often for my liking, authors trip themselves up and the woman character comes across as either a self centered harpy or irritating twit Thankfully, Grace was an intelligent, resilient, compassionate heroine who complimented Vittorio in every way Despite the vast inequity in their wealth and family, she was an orphan who grew up in foster homes , she did not need him to take care of her and was not impressed by his wealth Grace was confident enough in her own proven abilities to stand at his side as an equal partner.It was wonderful to see the family interacting and working together to welcome Grace into their fold as they try to negotiate a semblance of truce with the smarmy criminal Saldi family It was a nice twist to bring in a fascinating character and member of another shadow rider family, the enigmatic and powerful Archambaults Emmanuelle Ferraro should have waited for a man like Elie Archambault instead being such a fool to ever consider giving up everything, all her training and calling, for a man, that insipid Valentino Saldi no wonder her mother, Eloisa, was so hard on her only daughter for acting like a lovesick cow I hope to see of Elie Archambault and hope he finds a grand heroine like Grace I love seeing such extraordinary women come into the Ferraro family and making the clan stronger Even mean, derisive dragon mum Eloisa fought to protect Grace when it mattered most I m only bummed about having to wait another year to find out which Ferarro story will be next flag 5 likesLike see

exhibitionism and dominance which is fine but I feel that she sometimes forgets that as a series writer she basically writes 2 stories per book the main characters love story and the arc or main story line of her series she invariably drops the ball somewhere for both the stories She is also famous for having some of the most dominant H s but lately they appear to be taking back seats to villains they seem to be dominant all in the bedroom but outside, the villains make them run around like fools and all their declarations of keeping h s safe falls by the wayside Since last year, I have found all her series to be going in the same direction BDSM which is not bad but not really her style because CF has previously written some really great power exchanges without taking matters towards BDSM I also feel she is trying to portray the deepening intensity between all her main characters by using this track but she fails to consider that she writes pnr and urban fantasy and she is also one author who always puts her H and h on a level playing field if the H is a rider, so is the h If the H is a leopard so is the h so why take a level playing field and then have one character fall behind in line with the other one Why take the strong makeup of a h and make her one who is happy to be the damsel in distress The story is well written but CF is getting repetitive not just in one series

peacemaker, trying to control situations peacefully and if that couldn t be achieved he erupted and made every blow count He dreamed of finding someone to give him balance, to anchor him between these two extremes When he finds Grace his heart unlocks, he finds someone who he can open up to, actually needs to open up to, and we begin to see there is so much to Vittorio Ferraro, his masked personality emerges with her He pulls out all the stops to win her love and to save her from the man who has tormented her most of her life Grace, who spent time growing up in the foster care system, some horrible, some good But the most horrible was the Foster brother who latched on to the kindness she gave him, in his demented way protected her from the bad but also removed the good to keep her his She had to control herself and everything in her life to protect herself and those she came across from him Her control gave her the skills she needed for her career, but it also kept her from living Then she meets Vittorio and she realizes how tired she is of being in control How nice it is to surrender her fears, her care, to someone like him as her trust builds He brings to her life the same balance, the same anchor, he wants in his life In turn Grace gives them to him It s Ms Feehan s amazing storytelling that shows this happening, this bond growing into a beautiful relationship Vittorio, the epitome of a dominant alpha Male, is a stark contrast to the psychopath foster brother who torments Grace Hayden threatens her through his control, terrorizing her, removing any relationship in her life Vittorio wants to know her likes dislikes Knows that the strength of a relationship, even a dominant submissive one is one of communication and trust, knowing and acting on what makes each other happy Being brought into the Ferraro family this is important than anything The consequences are high if the trust is broken I was truly amazed at how these two grew as individuals and as a couple The villain, Grace s foster brother, is one of the most diabolical, bone chilling, I ve ever read He is a threat to the entire Ferraro family And the main reason I had to remind myself this is a romance there s going to be a happy ending And yes, with the family structure they gather information and with action packed scenes and special paranormal abilities the Ferraros know how to rise to the occasion All while Vittorio and Grace s story is being shared, I fell in love with the Ferraro siblings and their bond Happenings with the family s rivals, the Saldis, and within their territory let you know something is brewing and the family has threats to be aware of and the reader to realize this Series has a lot to offer in coming books flag 6 likesLike see

just can t be put down The romance area is a mixed bag depending on what one enjoys Readers who love scorchingly steamy, borderline kinky, pages and pages of long sex scenes almost to the point of overwhelming the whole will absolutely adore this romance For those who are interested in a romance that builds emotionally rather than sexually and prefer the story aspect of a book, will get a bit frustrated with all the pages that must be skimmed or skipped in order to continue the plot Totally a personal preference personally, as a plot centric reader, the incredibly rich basis for the

feel refreshed and get sucked in every time I pick up one of the books With all the travel I ve been doing, I was stoked to get to this one in the line up right before a hellish day of delayed flights and being squeezed into the tiny rows and uncomfortable seats of turbulent airplanes.Our shadow riding hero of this installment is Vittorio Ferraro, a strong and silent alpha male who fears he will never find his fated woman Vittorio is demanding, protective, and knows exactly what he wants and requires from his partner His need to be with his woman for all things could have seemed needy, but was instead worked into his dominance and alpha nature I really liked Vittorio, and reading things from his point of view helped me put my own relationship in perspective at a time when I m learning to balance my independence with being part of a couple Vittorio s perfect woman is Grace Murphy, an event planner with a troubled and tragic past Grace lucks out when her abduction lands her in the path of Vittorio, as he was the one man capable of fixing her life and making her ridiculously happy Our inexperienced and vulnerable heroine was balanced by her healthy self esteem, intelligence and work ethic She truly seemed to be the yin to Vittorio s yang, and they complemented each other very well I typically do not go for the inexperienced heroine, but I developed a good emotional connection with Grace in this story As a fated mates trope, this relationship was necessarily a insta love situation but one that I loved I liked seeing the instant attraction and fascination between our couple, and really enjoyed the building of their relationship as the story progressed The romantic plot was balanced with the serial killer targeting those close to Grace, and a possible war brewing between the Ferraro and Saldi families The action sequences and suspense woven into the relationship building and sexytimes kept me enthralled during the 15 hour travel day yes you read that

able to find a woman who would be willing to meet his needs He said this multiple times and I was starting to get scared about what exactly he was into that was strange But, as it unfolds, I think he is just very dominate He isn t into pain or anything like that, but he is controlling However, its not BAD controlling and you recognize quickly that he would never do something his lover didn t enjoy For readers who are skep about Dom Sub stuff, I think this is a great example of the practice used in a healthy relationship Maybe I m wrong I don t know much about it, and I haven t really read much BDSM , but I thought Feehan s approach to this aspect of Vittorio s personality was well handled While Vittorio and Grace s relationship isn t for me, it worked for both of them and you can see that throughout the story Grace is a woman who gives off the appearance of having her life together She works for a very popular event planner and she is the person behind the scenes that makes everything run flawlessly But her personal life has been hell since childhood Her foster brother was truly terrifying and his presence added a layer of genuine fear to the story.Finally, there is lots of allusions regarding Emmanuelle and I m hoping her book is next But, there is an allusion to Taviano and his true love as well There is some drama with a local crime family that has been brewing for awhile now, and all this goes on while Vittorio and Grace are dealing with Haydon Shadow Warrior was captivating from the start and it never let up with its blend of danger and sensuality POV 3rd

the series The highly visible rich kids persona s are a mask they all wear to cover the family business Vittorio Ferraro has been restless wanting the family and home life he has seen his brothers, Stefano, Ricco and Giovanni start The want and need for a woman of his own is a constant emotion, it s the finding that is not going to be easy in his mind, his totally dominant nature will make it hard to find a woman willing to live with such a controlling man That is until Grace Murphy explodes out of the car trunk that her foster brother had forced her into, the key turned in the lock of his heart, just as it had for his 3 older brothers Grace Murphy has risen above the abuse she suffered growing up in the foster care system The only thing still around from that time is her foster brother, once a source of protection, now a monster willing to sell Grace into prostitution for gambling debts In the Ferraro nightclub parking lot, Vittorio rescues her from her brother s attempt to sell Grace to the Ferraro s archenemies the Saldi s to pay the debt In the resulting fight Grace takes a bullet meant for Vittorio All that in the 1st Chapter As to the foster brother, I found him to be one the Scariest villains ever in the Feehan book list and she has had some really scary villains I still find myself looking at vents and attic stairs with suspicion.The Ferraro siblings captured my heart from the very first book The love and loyalty they feel is what all families hope to achieve The demands on their bodies and mind, the rules and restrictions of what they are makes the possibility of finding a person to love so limiting as to make it impossible to find a mate Vittorio s over the top dominant nature ensures in his mind that he will be the one Ferraro to stay single, while Grace s foster brother makes it impossible for her to get close to anyone let alone fall in love But bad guys don t scare the Ferraro s, it s their duty to take them out and Vittorio will never allow a bad guy to keep Grace from him.I tend to say this over and over again, since it s true, it bears repeating Ms Feehan is one of the most intriguing storytellers I have ever read The world building, the suspense, emotion and anticipation from book to book are riveting The romance scenes are hot, hot, hot as the hero s and heroines find their way to each other This is a definite keeper

and doesn t want to smother her with his personality Will everyone appreciate the dynamic between Grace and Vittorio Probably not But I loved it I never felt that Grace was a doormat for going along with what Vittorio wanted made Vittorio and Grace s relationship acceptable because it was all consensual I love that V didn t try to dominate Grace s life before he laid out all the facts for her If she had really not wanted the lifestyle he was into, he would have let her find someone who worked better for her, even if it hurt him That action alone puts him towards the top of my Feehan heroes I will say this book wasn t nearly as kinky as I was expecting, but I think the steam level and the number of love scenes was perfect for the story, and I don t always say that about Feehan novels.If you don t like insta love goodness, this story isn t for you If you re ready for intense family drama, smoking hot love scenes, and one of the evilest villains Feehan has ever written, this book is for you.The only thing that knocked this down a half star was the anti climactic end to the main suspense plot I expected a little bit Plus I think Emme is going to end up with Val and I really hope not, because I hate him, she deserves better.Overall, this is going towards the top of the 70 Feehan novels I ve read I loved it I have been a loyal Feehan fan for years, and with every new book, she

foster brother from childhood has latched on to her and has stalked her Has threatened to hurt or kill anyone that she gets close to She lives a singular life, afraid to let anyone in Vittorio feels something very wrong at the nightclub, he follows his instincts, which leads him to the parking lot where he sees a deal going down, something that should not be happening at a Ferraro club When they open the trunk never does he expect a woman fighting mad trying to escape her fate This is the woman meant for himw if he can only convince her Grace is shot while Vittorio tries to save her he calls his family to their side and gets her to the hospital, protects herls her that he needs to let people know she is his fiancee so he can take care of her and protect her Now, he uses that time to charm her and let her see a side of him that is real, not what she reads in the magazines or sees in the press Grace doesn t want the Ferraro family involved in her issues with her foster brother, she fears for anyone who touches her life Can Vittorio convince her he is the man who can give her a life, his family can ensure she has happiness.If that is not enough the Ferraro family also has someone
