Caressed by Shadows by Amanda J. Greene

Caressed by Shadows (Rulers of Darkness, #4)
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Rulers of Darkness #4

Black Knight, Falcon Kenwrec is powerful, relentless, and fiercely loyal, his only allegiance – to his king. But he is torn between duty and desire when the war between the vampire clans and the Red Order hunters escalates and the enemy captures the one woman he longs to claim as his own, Sonya Rebane, Queen of the Voidukas Clan. Falcon will risk everything to save her, even if it means forsaking his king.

After weeks of imprisonment, Sonya is stunned when the chivalrous knight that she has secretly loved from afar appears outside her cell. As they fight and struggle to elude their enemies, they must battle their overwhelming attraction for each other and their love that is forbidden.

As every perilous moment draws them closer together, every smoldering kiss drives them to the brink of a passionate destruction. Will they be able to resist temptation? Or will their love be their ruin?

My Rating: 3 Roses

An enjoyable romance, Caressed by Shadows was a lovely read. With its sweet and steamy romance and paranormal thrills, this book was a good read.

Both of the main characters were great. Sonya was tough and definitely a force to be reckoned with. Falcon was strong and a formidable opponent, but also sweet and imminently honorable. I liked them both.

The romance was filled with sexual tension. Sonya and Falcon had loved each other from afar for decades and that led to a lot of pent up lust. I thought that tension was well portrayed and it definitely led to some steaminess. And, these two were sweet together. The cared for each other deeply and it was obvious that each would sacrifice anything for the other.

The plot was well paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. There wasn't really anything special about the book, which is why I didn't give it a higher rating. It wasn't an amazing book, but it was a nice read. I enjoyed the story and the ending wrapped up the romance while leaving a few things open for the next book.

Caressed by Shadows was an enjoyable read that I quite liked. Romance lovers, this might be a book you'll want to check out.
