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.
Just like Beauty and the Beast, Dark Alpha’s Claim’s Jordyn loves books…how could you not love that…
Baylon is a Reaper in Erith’s, AKA Death, service. His job, be the judge, jury and executioner of the evil dark Fae.
When a command comes down for the Reapers to kill all the human – fae half breeds, they baulk. But Baylon seems to baulk the most. When he discovers one, Jordyn, he can’t seem to stay away from her. Let us just say their chemistry is combustible.
In an attempt to protector her, he disregards Erith’s rules…which could mean his death.
Together, they discover a devastating plot with the Dark Fae at its core.
The story has a good pace with us not waiting long for the couple to connect. Boy, do they connect.
Jordyn, in my opinion, steals the show. She is, absolutely, weaker than all around her but is willing to give it all to protect those she loves.
I really enjoyed the story, but that essential spark that makes you a participant and not just a by-stander wasn’t there for me.
I'm sure this book and series is going to thrill Donna Grant’s paranormal fans. If you loved the Dragon Kings you should definitely check out Dark Alpha's Claim.
