Genre: Paranormal Romance
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.
I find the myth unique although a little vague. Or maybe it's not as complicated as your run of the mill night crawlers. It's very literal and these Shadow Riders are like a vigilante group/assassins for hire. There's some action and the final confrontation is perfect! But as SHADOW RIDER is a PNR, CFeehan focused more on Stefano and Francesca's relationship, building the romantic tension to the point where I'm shouting at Stefano and Francesca to do the deed and get it over and done with.
I love SHADOW RIDER, it's formulaic and like coming home. Half of me got the feels, I had to take mini breaks just to catch my breath because Stefano is so effing intense! He's every bit an Alpha, very commanding, always frowning, on the edge, ready to snap at the smallest provocation and Stefano is SO DAMN SEXY! That said, part of me find Stefano and even Francesca your stereotypical PNR couple. After a while, I started to find their antics amusing and I would play their scenes like a parody. Anyway, read SHADOW RIDER, you won't be disappointed.
