McCarty’s second Shadow Reapers paranormal western (after Reaper’s Justice) surrounds an unexpected romance with emotional turmoil, danger, and sassy attitudes. Protective and stubborn Cole Cameron tries to rescue his cousin Addy from the shapeshifters called Reapers. When evil Reapers attack him, Addy’s Reaper mate, Isaiah, saves him and brings him to a secret Reaper village where solo humans are not welcome. Though he’s a human, Cole cannot resist his attraction to Miranda, a Reaper. Emotionally wounded yet resilient Miranda wants only to protect her human daughter, Wendy, even if that means being mated to an abusive Reaper and denying her attraction to Cole. He declares himself to be an alpha and stakes his claim for Miranda using Reaper law. But trust does not come easily for Miranda, and with Reaper internal and external struggles escalating, she has no idea how to figure out whether Cole is the right choice. As they wrestle with personal demons and a rocky relationship, they learn to handle danger as a team. Readers willing to buy into the scantily detailed Reaper world will be rewarded with a soul-satisfying love story. (Mar.)
