Trust is more valuable than gold in a world where traitors conspire, and Lady Evelyn realizes that even shadows demand payment.

Lady Evelyn Montgomery, only daughter of the Baron of Rayne, detests the thought of marriage. She will never allow a man to control her. Crushed by the constraints of propriety, she steals away from the safety of the keep and stumbles onto a plot designed to stir up trouble between England and Scotland. When a mysterious hooded man saves her, she fights her attraction to him as they join forces to hunt down a traitor and save her father. But can she save her heart?

Gabriel is a Shadow Guardian. Hiding beneath his black cowl and blending into the night, he is sworn to protect the Baron's daughter. The spirited Lady Evelyn is far from the delicate flower he anticipated. She makes herself crystal clear, no man will possess her. Can he prove to her that love can be more than just possession? Or will the traitor they seek tear them apart forever?

This was a great debut novel by a new-to-me author. I really, really liked this story. In fact, I read it in two evening sittings...I just didn't want to put it down. I like my romance heroines to be feisty and strong, and Evelyn was definitely that for sure. And I like my romantic heroes to be equally strong, but with a spirit that embraces the qualities of women and becomes a teammate rather than an overlord in the relationship, and Gabriel was a swoon-worthy hero that I liked from the very beginning of the story. I liked the bit of mystery in the story and a bad guy that was really, really bad so that I could root for the good guys! This story had all the elements of a terrific story and enough action to keep me riveted to the pages until it ended. Sigh. I recommend this author and I'm planning on reading the rest of her stories.

* Received from author for an honest opinion. Four stars “An Irresistible Shadow” was a great read. I enjoyed the hero and the heroine. Lady Evelyn Montgomery was a very strong female character. She definitely walked to the beat of her own drum. Gabriel, a Shadow Guardian, provided the perfect balance for Lady Evelyn. They had excellent chemistry and had great adventures. The historical background of the conflict between England and Scotland provided a great underlying story. The author blended the romantic and historical aspects perfectly. The writing was engaging and the plot very original. I would recommend this novel and I highly enjoyed it.

I am generally hesitant on trying on "new2me" historical romance authors. The fear of a mousy, submissive heroine gives me hives. The blurb offered me a promise that happily was not broken. Lady Evelyn was a warrior in a dress. She could handle a blade and hand to hand with the most experienced of warriors. She knew her own mind and was determined to bow to no man. Yay!! She also had a sharp tongue, sarcastic wit, but was also kind and compassionate. Gabriel was a doll, open, not afraid to express his emotions and totally head over heels for Evelyn. It is hard to go into a great deal of detail without giving away some major spoilers. (which I NEVER do) He wants Evelyn to be the woman she herself wants to be, but he does have some big time convincing on his hands. He also must guard her from her own fearlessness. The only thing she is truly afraid of is losing her freedom. This keeps Gabriel busy. The story itself moves very quickly and is full of action. There are conspiracies, lots of plotting and plan devising, with a goodly dose of fairly hot romance. (smoking but not too, too graphic) There are some memorable secondary characters who, I am 99.999% certain get their own book that I am looking forward to a great deal.  If you are a fan of strong heroines and their devoted heroes, you will certainly enjoy An Irresistible Shadow. (it's right there in the title)

Fantastic story, well written, had me awake and reading into late night hours because I had to find out what was going to happen. Looking forward to reading more from this author (Kirsten Blacketer). She has a nack for creating characters I can't get enough of.
