    Pulse-Pounding Paranormal Romance

    Continuing the battle of good vs. evil that began in TOUCH A DARK WOLF, this book is the story of Emerald Linton and Sam Sheridan, two characters who have figured prominently in the first two books of the Shadowmen series.

    Six years ago, Emerald Linton and her young daughter, Megan barely escaped with their lives after Emerald's husband succumbed to the evil infection of a Vladarian vampire bite and tried to kill them. They remained in hiding until nine months ago when a vision led them to Twilight, Tennessee - a mystical mountain town with a prevailing sense of goodness. For a woman with Emerald's special, secret powers, Twilight seemed the perfect place to raise her daughter and make a stand against the evil that she knew would eventually find them. She wasn't looking for a man to complicate matters but Emerald hadn't counted on Sheriff Sam Sheridan. Sexual sparks flew between Sam and Emerald the first day she hit town and have only intensified since then but Sam has no intention of acting on his desire for the Irish spitfire. Plagued by nightmares and flashbacks, Sam knows his soul has been irrevocably damaged by the sadistic drug lord who held him captive and cruelly tortured him for two years. He refuses to get close to someone he could possibly hurt during a flashback to that horrific time in the Belize jungle but fate has other plans for Sam and Emerald.

    A former soldier, Sam is a take charge, no nonsense man who six months ago would have sworn on his life that vampires were a figment of someone's imagination and sexy Emerald was nothing more than a flaky, telephone sex therapist who drove him crazy with desire. But that was before spiritual warriors who morphed into wolves showed up in his town, Emerald and her daughter had strange visions that proved startlingly accurate and Sam led a rescue mission to the jungles of Belize that ended with him being bitten by the same man who had held him captive - sadistic Vladarian vampire, Luis Vasquez. Now demonic forces from Hell and Earth are gathering near Twilight for the coronation of Cinatas, the new Vladarian leader whose goal is to rule the world and Sam finds himself battling demons and vampires while slowly losing his ability to control the violence and overpowering sexual hunger invading his soul. As the evil in Twilight strengthens so does the vampire infection in Sam and he finds himself in a race against time to save the citizens of his town and the woman and child he has grown to love before the evil coursing through his veins overtakes his innate goodness and turns Sam into a monster who could destroy them all.

    In her new series, St. Giles has created a complex, fascinating world where evil vampires live and work among us, holding positions of influence, wealth and power, and seductive, shape shifting spirit warriors move easily between the spirit realm and Earth, battling to save mankind from the evil that threatens both their world and ours. delight. Though one couple is the primary focus of each book in the series and achieves their HEA by the end of their book, there is an ongoing, overlying story arc and an ensemble cast of complex, multi-layered characters (both good and bad) who figure prominently in all of the books. I strongly recommend reading this series in order: Touch a Dark Wolf, The Lure of the Wolf, Kiss of Darkness.

    The latest Shadowmen romantic urban fantasy a fabulous action-packed thriller

    The recent victory cannot be celebrated as the Shadowmen and their allies continue their vigil as their lethal enemy persists on their assault. One mistake could cost them their lives as the malevolent demons and vampires keep the pressure on.

    A vampire bit her husband Eric six years ago in England taking him to the dark side and leaving clairvoyant Emerald Linton alone in fear for her now eleven year old daughter Meggie and a need to relocate and conceal her heritage from everyone. In Twilight, Tennessee human Sheriff Sam Sheridan knows Emerald, who resides there with Meggie, is hiding something, but he fails to get her to open up to him. She knows what a vampire bite can do and he was bitten when Cinatas and his evil minion arrive. Preferring flight rather than fight, reluctantly Emerald has no choice for Meggie's sake except to turn to Sam if she can heal him somehow.

    The latest Shadowmen romantic urban fantasy (see TOUCH A DARK WOLF and Lure of the Wolf) is a fabulous action-packed thriller from the opening prologue in Wiltshire, England six years ago to the final naked truffle epilogue. The lead couple is a strong pairing of two people banging heads even before the vampiric invasion. Fans of the saga will appreciate the tale as the clairvoyant and the bitten sheriff battle evil in small-town Tennessee.

    what a great read

    I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of the book. This is a story that grabs the reader. Once I started reading the book I could not put it down. There are multiple twist and turns in the story line. It realy kept me guessing what would happen next
