Betrayed by Shadowsby Nancy Gideon
A good man drowning in bad deeds. A bad girl denying a good heart. Reluctant hero Giles St. Clair doesn't need a problem like Brigit MacCreedy. Fleeing the retribution of her dead lover's clan, Brigit is willing to do whatever it takes to protect her family…except trust the human who puts himself between her and her powerful enemies in a battle he can't win.
While balancing a criminal empire and a shapeshifter clan war, Giles St. Clair is charged with protecting Brigit MacCreedy. How much trouble can the head-strong and manipulative Shifter beauty get into in two weeks? Plenty, when her schemes range from kidnapping to fleeing the retribution of her dead lover’s clan.
With her family’s lives on the line, Brigit is willing to do whatever it takes to save them. The only thing standing in her way is an immovable stone wall of a man she can’t bully or beguile…a human, no less, who has promised to protect her from the secrets and dangers she conceals.
Risking her own safety gets complicated when an honorable and annoyingly desirable man puts himself between her and her powerful enemies in a battle he can’t win, in this “Taming of the Shrew meets Shifter Goodfellas on the Bayou” tale of consequences, redemption, and finding love in all the wrong places.

Another great read. Highly recommend it :)
I had the opportunity to read Masked by Moonlight, the first book in this series, back in 2010, and really enjoyed it. It was a series that I knew that I wanted to read more of - but of course, hundreds of other books got in the way. When I was given the opportunity to read this one for review, I jumped on it! I missed out on a lot in the five books that came in between - but this book does read well as a standalone. I really liked Brigit - she was all tough as nails on the outside, but once you got within the walls that she built up, she was really just lonely and looking for someplace to call home. Giles was sort of the same way. He had given up his family and home for revenge and just saw a lonely life stretching before him. He had sold his soul to Jimmy Legere to exact revenge for his father's death, but since Jimmy died and Max Savoie has taken over the business, his dark side has started to retreat. He has mixed feelings toward Brigit though. You see, Giles is human and Brigit is "one of them". Giles has always been big on compartmentalizing everything, but he is having a hard time trying to figure out where Bree should fit. Trouble seems to follow her, regardless of her intentions, and before you know it, it has found her in New Orleans. Giles packs her up and takes her down to the backwoods where he is from to try to keep her safe. They let their guard down and actually start to get close, but will the trouble that pursues her be too much for a fledgling romance? This is a very fast moving book and you barely get a breather between crises. There is a lot of family loyalty, whether related by blood or friendship, where people will put everything they have on the line to save another. Warning - there are sex scenes in the book, but they are not vulgar. They are gentle, sensual, and leave you breathless. I will be doing my best to find some time to go back and fit in those books that I missed, as this is one author that I really enjoy reading.
BETRAYED BY SHADOWS by Nancy Gideon is an interesting paranormal romance. Book 7 in the "By Moonlight" series. It is a steamy story set in New Orleans. While this is book 7 in this series, I had no trouble keeping up with the story line, characters, or plot. A compelling,steamy story of love,romance, passion,danger,intrigue,shapeshifters, and hidden,dark secrets. This is my first by this author but it will not be my last. With a spellbinding cast,intrigue,a strong plot, sizzling passion,and supernatural elements,what's not to enjoy. Fast paced and filled with action,and spine bounding suspense. A must read for anyone who enjoys paranormal,romance,shapeshifters,and suspense. Received for an honest review from the publisher. Details can be found at the author's website,Pocket Star,Simon & Schuster and My Book Addiction and More. RATING: 4.5 HEAT RATING: SIZZLING REVEIWED BY: AprilR, My Book Addiction and More/My Book Addiction Reviews
I'm not usually a reader of paranormal, but this series hooked me from the first book. Unexpected plot twists, fast pacing and characters who defy the ordinary (and make your heart pound), all come together to draw the reader into a world of dark intrigue that captured my imagination and left me breathless. Ms. Gideon's extraordinary writing skills brings the exotic sights, sounds and flavors of a lesser-known, darkly seductive New Orleans to life with her latest shape-shifter page-turner. A winner!
