Review ~ Shadow’s Pleasure by Molle McGregor


Brought together by circumstance. Bound together by chance. Despite the danger, passions ignite...

Sequestered for over ten years and manipulated by those that were supposed to love and protect her, Sorcha wants nothing more than her freedom. When her childhood friend and two other Shadows are kidnapped and held by a sadistic Director hell-bent on changing the very nature of their existence, Sorcha knows it’s past time to escape. With the help of the sinfully sexy Kiernan Black, she finally gains her independence, but the depths of her passion for the Warder may be more dangerous than the mission to save her friends.

As a Warder, Kiernan Black has never turned his back on an innocent. So when one of his own is working with a demon to brutalize innocent Shadows, he knows he must save them. With the beautiful, brave, and infuriatingly stubborn Sorcha Davis as his partner, he embarks on what might be the most dangerous mission of his life. But if he can find a way to make the fiery Shadow his along the way, the rewards could outweigh the risks.

“I plan to,” he whispered against her lips.
 “Plan to what?” Sorcha whispered back. Kiernan’s lips, warm and soft as silk, slid over hers. A whimper caught at the back of her throat.

 “Plan to take care,” Kiernan said, lips brushing hers as he spoke. “You belong to me.”

Molle’s writing career started when she was seven and suffered terrible insomnia. Night after night she couldn’t sleep until long after mid-night, only to wake a few hours later. Frustrated with her inability to just go to bed, (and her penchant for sneaking a book and a flashlight under the covers) her grandmother said, “You like to read so much, why don’t you tell yourself a story until you fall asleep.” With this brilliant advice, Molle’s overactive brain was off and running. Now, years later, she’s finally taught herself to sleep, but she’s never stopped telling stories.

When she’s not reading, writing, or staring into space making things up, Molle is getting into trouble with her husband, two sons, two dogs and vicious attack cat in the mountains of North Carolina. She likes to hike, cook, listen to music way too loud, and hang out with her boys. She does not like dusting or emptying the dishwasher.

My Thoughts:

Shadow's Pleasure is a great stand alone book but reading the previous books is sure to be enjoyable for you. ;-)

I thoroughly enjoyed this one from start to finish. I especially liked the slow build up of the romance between a shadow, Sorcha, and a warder, Kiernan.

Typically shadows and warders avoid each other and have only one thing in common, they both want to rid the world of demons. Long ago these two groups bonded with each other.

I love these characters. Sorcha is tough and feisty despite being oppressed for many years by a menacing mentor and awful parents.

Kiernan is a great guy. He is loyal to a fault, tough, protective, and fierce. Oh, he is also incredibly sweet at times and he likes to take his woman shopping. ;-)

This story had a steady pace that was helped by the mystery, action and romance.

I am really liking this series and I can't wait to read the next book. I am also eager for Kate and Ben's story!

If you like paranormal romance, something different, great characters, or a promising series to follow, do yourself a favor and check this book out.

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought it was wonderful.
