In this book, another raper finds its soulmate. Dubhan the previous dark fae finds that light fae Kyra is following him for a long time and knows about reapers. Dubhan and Kyra start a new adventure in which they find a few interesting unknown facts about the Other, feelings about each other and unexpected facts from their families. I loved the book, the story is yet again great written. Both Dubhan and Kyra are well developed and their love story develops beautifully and at the right pace. I loved that the story has more than one unpredictable twist and patiently waiting for the next one. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for NetGalley

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy. This is a great romance of a specific couple, Kyrra and Dubhan, in an overall series that has an ongoing story line. It has been awhile since I read a book in this series so it took me a bit to remember the characters and the back story. There were quite a bit of surprise twists in this book and I don't want to give away these and spoil it for other readers but after seeing the Light Fae Queen defeated, I was not prepared for what was revealed. A new group to face is brought to light and has ties to both Kyra and Dubhan. It was also great that we see more of the Dragon Kings and Cael and Death make an appearance. Can't wait for the next Reaper's story! Will they ever find Xaneth??

Dark Alpha's Temptation is a fantastic journey into the heart and mind of yet another Reaper. I don't know about anyone else, but I seriously love these guys! They are fierce and strong and determined and yet when love crosses their path, they soften and accept as any man would who recognizes the incredible gift that love is. I seriously can't get enough of this stunning world and its fascinating characters. I look forward to many more amazing stories that are sure to entertain and delight! Kyra just wants to live life on her terms. She has been told what to do and how to act growing up and now she just wants to savor and enjoy what life has to offer. She doesn't put demands on life, and yet one day she finds herself inexplicably pulled toward another being who endlessly fascinates her and pulls her in at every turn. Dubhan knew what he life as a Reaper would entail. He doesn't ask for more or different. He is content to do what Death has asked of him. In one breath, he finds that Fate has altered his life. Not sure what to think of is, he hesitantly explores this new possibility. When he discovers the truth and depth of what has been given to him, he grabs hold of it and savors it for as long as he can. Can two lost and hurting souls find shelter and healing in each other, or will this new dream quickly turn into a nightmare of epic proportions? I had no idea which Reaper we would be getting to know better, but I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Dubhan. He is an intriguing character with a dark and mysterious past and yet not to be outdone by his lady love whose past is just as mysterious as his. Together they explore, discover, and attempt to turn the tide for good. Not only do they try to accomplish Dubhan's task, but they find themselves entangled on a much more fundamental level. Oh what a fun and thrilling adventure that I found myself on! Donna Grant gives us yet another tightly woven and magnificently written work of art that digs deeper and reveals just a little more of her massively brilliantly multiple threaded plot. Her books whisk me away into a world of fantasy, love, adventure, and danger. I couldn't ask for more, and I always long to return soon after. Grant is a fabulous author that has won my heart and reading devotion, and I hope to read more of her for many years to come!

This much loved series of Dark and Light Fae , Reapers , Dragon Kings and a new enemy The Others continues with two new strong main characters , fated to find each other . Kyra Kavanaugh . a Light Fae from an 'old family' line , unwittingly witnessed the Reapers in their recent battle against Fae Light Queen , Usaeil . Her gaze soley focussed on the battling Reaper , Dubhan ……… she cannot explain her attraction … is he her mate ?. Dubhan , puts aside his search for Xaneth in his quest to get to know Kyra better - for she has abilities that might just aid them against the Others . However the Others have become aware of Kyra - she now becomes a target …………. can Dubhan and the Reapers keep her safe , for they will need her abilities in the coming battle . This book starts a new chapter in the ongoing series featuring the Dragon Kings and the Reapers in their fight against the Others …………… but it still leaves us with questions - where is Rhi . where did Usaeil's body go after she was killed . is she really dead and most of all can the Others be defeated ??? These books go from strength to strength and keep the reader invested in the fate of all the Dragon Kings and their allies . I look forward to the next in the series I was given an ARC of this book by Netgalley and the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Dark Alpha's Temptation is Kyra's insta-love story. Although she's a bit wet behind the ears, she is a pretty good puzzle solver. How she fits into the overall series is very intriguing. Next up, we have the ever-so-studly Dubhan the Reaper. Even though this novel was tagged "A Reaper Novel" I felt he wasn't put up high enough on a pedestal for the label. In fact, he's quite forgettable. He needed to have more of a stronger character and be less of a sex object. Poor guy. As far as the series goes, Dark Alpha's Temptation fits in nicely. Donna Grant has a knack on adding stories into the series while also moving the plot line forward. I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book, so I could give an honest review.

I received an ARC of this title from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Kyra and Dubhan are destined for each other. They are initially bound by an inexorable attraction that quickly deepens to true affection. Their love is endangered by the secrets of Dubhan's origins, the scheming of Kyra's former lover, and the impending battle with the Others. I enjoyed the latest installment in this world.

This is a much beloved fantasy series of Light and Dark Fae, Dragon Kings, Reapers and now the Others. Dubhan and Kyra are two strong leads. Their story is so well fleshed out you connect with them and care when they have to see the truth of their heritage. This is a story that can be read as a stand alone without you getting lost but then go back and enjoy the series. It will end with you wanting more. I was given an ARC of this book by Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Loved reading the fabulous and fantastic paranormal story. When Reaper Dubhan discovers someone is following him, he finds out she is a beautiful woman and Fae, Kyla. Read the highly recommended, wonderfully written, and a must read love story.

Dark Alpha's Temptation is the next story in the Dragon King's overall story line though technically a Reaper novel. More of a love at first sight story with significantly less action, the story is hot and sweet. Kyra learns that Reapers are real and not just legend when stumbling on them in the midst of battle. All Reapers are impressive but the sexy Dubhan keeps occupying her mind. A little stalking later leads to meeting that leads to danger and a super sexy and sweet love story with some unexpected truths uncovered. New information about the Others emerges in this novel but not as much battling with them as in past Dragon King novels. A sweet and sexy love story in the Dragon King's world, the book is an easy, fast paced good feeling inducing time. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

This wasn't my favorite one of the series but that's only because the series is so good. It really feels now that the series is ramping up in anticipation of a major ending. I think it will be the Avengers Assemble of the whole intertwined story lines. :)

Donna Grant’s latest installment in her Reaper series, part of her Dark World, is the story of Dubhan and Kyra. Kyra is a Light Fae but lives her life as if she was human. She never really fit in with her Fae family, but she doesn’t really fit in with the humans either. Dubhan was a Dark Fae before he became a Reaper, and like the other Reapers, found out that where he really fit in and belonged was with the Reapers. Kyra’s world changed when she saw a battle she shouldn’t have seen. In that battle, she saw a Dark Fae who she could not forget, Dubhan. She didn’t know why, but she had to find him. When she found him, which she should not have been able to do, she had to follow him. Dubhan knew he was being followed, but not why. When he confronts her, she did not know the danger that would follow. Dubhan and Kyra are a perfect match and the couple we needed to tell this part of the story. We learn more about The Others. We see what could be the strengthening of an alliance that has existed through previous books and could change the course of this Dark World Donna Grant’s readers have come to know and love. I have been reading Donna Grant’s books for years and I anticipate each book in this larger story. This book gave me some answers I was looking for and some new questions I need to be asking about future books. Each new book of Donna Grant’s give us what we want in our main couple without forgetting the other characters we love. I can’t wait to see how Erith, Cael, the Reapers and their mates move forward in this war between The Others and the Dragon Kings. I am sure new twists and turns are awaiting all of our favorite characters.

This is a Reaper story but is part of a continuing saga of the Dark Kings and Dark Warriors novels. I think this works as a stand alone but is better if you know the background. Dubhan is one of a team of reapers that serve death. Unknowingly, Kyra observes his team fighting a battle in which it appears that the leaders of the light and dark fae have been killed. The fae world is struggling without leadership and other factions are gathering together to try to control the realm. Kyra can’t stop thinking about Dubhan and they end up working together to invest these other factions. This is a very short book mainly focused on Kyra and Dubhan as they discover the others. I liked it. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Dark Alpha's Temptations is the next book in the incredible Reapers series by Donna Grant. This isn't a stand-alone book, but part of an incredible tale of Fae, Death, Reapers, Druids, Dragons and Dragon Kings. It reads in sync with her Dragon Kings series. If you haven't started either series, I can't recommend them enough. Kyra is a Fae with a secret. One that could put her very life in danger. She has seen something she wasn't meant to see and now is in search for answers. She has a very strong talent for finding answers. Dubhan is a Reaper in search of a lost friend of the Reapers. Together they are unstoppable. Once again Donna Grant has given us a strong independent female lead and swoon-worthy male lead. Highly recommend this series and the Dragon Kings series.

In this latest installment of the Reaper series by Donna Grant, we follow Kyra and Dubhan's burgeoning romance. The backdrop is Ireland, amidst the backlash of the events that took place in the Dark Kings book Fever. Dark Alpha's Temptation is not a stand-alone novel. Many books lead to this point, and I fear a new reader would be lost if this is their first in Donna Grant's Dark World series. Prior publications are worth the experience, and one could go back a long way. I love a richly developed setting, and this series is one of my favorites in the urban fantasy/paranormal romance style. Dubhan is what you would expect out of a Reaper. Who can resist a sexy, immortal, justice dealing Irishman? Kyra is a courageous heroine to match. Together they are an attractive, charming couple. Overall I enjoyed their story. Random spoilery thoughts: This book gave us more information on the threat to Reaper allies, and the Reapers themselves, which I enjoyed getting. After the events in Fever, I was hoping for a theory I had to be confirmed here, which it was not. I could be wrong, but time will tell. Until then I will have to deal with the lingering sorrow and frustration.

Dubhan has lived his life in the dark. Betrayal had sealed his fate until Death made him an offer to become one of her Reapers. Kyra is a Light Fae who knows the Reapers, if she can talk to one, can help her find her aunt. Little do they suspect, they were meant to meet. “For someone who hadn’t known what love was, he was surprised that he recognized it. Then again, something that profound wasn’t easily overlooked.” The next installment in Donna Grant’s Reaper series carries on a storyline that had a few large plot events in the last couple of books. This one starts spooling us up for the next one. The plot line and character development are what we’ve come to expect from this author. You can’t go wrong with your one-click.

Dark Alphas Temptation is the 9th in the Reaper series by Donna Grant. It is the story of the Reaper Dubhan & Light Fae Kyra. The character of Kyra is wonderful. She is strong, smart - & speaks her mind – to everyone, but it’s her thoughtful approach that helps people see the wisdom in her words. With the events in the last several Dark Kings and Reaper books we are learning more about the others but still have so many questions! A must read to keep on top of the whole story line.

I'm still new to the world of the Reapers and the Dragon Kings, but this story drew me right in. Though she doesn't know why, Kyra drawn to the Reaper. For his part, Dubhan doesn't know what to make of the fae who is following him. What they find when they meet is unexpected. I loved the quick pace of the story and was intrigued by the revelations uncovered. It only made me want to immerse myself more fully in their world. I received an ARC of this book and voluntarily offer my review.

I’m a huge fan of Donna Grant. Everytime a new book comes out in this series and the Dragon Kong’s I get super excited. I don’t know if it’s just me but I get so immersed in the books and I feel like I can visualize everything as if I’m present. Dark Alphas Temptation does not disappoint. This book is about Kyra and Dubhan, and of course the others make appearances. I’m getting more amped as the series is nearing its end, I cannot wait to see how it all unfolds.

Love this series! Another great book by Donna Grant. Her characters are bigger than life. This series is still so fresh even though this is the ninth book in this series. If you haven’t read them yet you’re missing out on quite an adventure .

I think this is my favorite book in this series. Dubhan is a Reaper and one of the Death's rules is no one can know of the Reapers. So when he catches Krya stalking him it gets his attention. Krya is a White Fae who tries to live as a human, not using her magic. But once she has seen the Reapers in a battle and caught sight of Dubhan, she became smitten with him, even though he was a Dark Fae. I liked the way Krya was so positive, smiling at everyone, being nice, enjoying simple things. It was as if she opened a new world for Dubhan. And the Reapers are still looking for Xaneth, I really hope they find him soon, I really want to see more of him. I received an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
