InD'Tale Magazine says: Primally exciting, sexy and downright fun, "Saving Jace" is an absolute winner! ~5 stars, Crowned Heart Review
NOTE: Saving Jace is the start of the Darktime Trilogy featuring the Baltimore Earth Fada Clan. All books are standalone with an HEA, but the stories and people interconnect. If you crave dark shifters, steamy romance and intense emotional storylines, this book is for you.
Read an excerpt:
Someone was watching her. Evie gripped her keys and glanced around.
Across the alley, a pair of luminous green eyes stared at her from the shadows.
Her heart kicked into a gallop. "Jace? Is that you?"
Please let it be him.
He stepped out of the shadows. She blew out a breath. It was Jace.
He crossed the alley in a few long, loose strides. An atavistic tremor went down her spine. This was the real Jace—and he was nothing like the injured, feverish victim of last week. No, this man was dark. Powerful. Raw-boned. A panther in a T-shirt and jeans.
She squared her shoulders and lifted her chin, because damn it, she'd saved the man's life. She refused to let him spook her.
He stopped a few feet away. "Hello, Evie."
He was bigger than she remembered, but then, last week he'd been hunched over nursing his injuries. Now she realized he was a good half foot taller than her with the lean, hard build of a soldier. Another shiver went down her spine—but this one had nothing to do with fear.
Shapeshifters created during Dionysus's infamous bacchanals.
They're dark, ruthless, untamed—and when they love, it's forever.

Best paranormal I read in a while. Well written with a strong plot. Likable characters and interesting. Good job. Please keep writing. MR.
This was the first book that I read by this author and I absolutely loved it. I need to read the others ASAP. Jace is visiting his niece and is attacked and left for dead. He finds himself being saved by a human woman named Evie. Evie is raising her younger brother on her own and now her and her brother are pulled into Jace's shifter world. Jace and Evie have some undeniable chemistry together. Jace doesn't want to be attracted to her because she is a human but his cat wants her so that's that Also, he lost his sister because of his prejudices so maybe he should be more open minded. I really loved being a part of this journey and seeing this shifter world that Rebecca Rivard has created, she put a nice, unique twist on things that you'll love!! Received a free copy of this book from the author
There are Fae, Humans, and Fada. Fada are a mix of fae, human, and animal, also know as a shifter. There are those that live on land known as earth fada like bears, tigers, panthers, etc. Those that live in or near water are know as river fada like sharks, dolphins, etc. Jace is an earth fade-black jaguar-that was attacked an injured when he meets Evie-a human. She saves him with the help of her little brother. Unfortunately she gets caught up in a fight against an evil fae prince. Great read. Can't wait for the next books.
once you start this it is really hard to put down. I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of this book.
Saving Jace By: Rebecca Rivard ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Review by Kristie K An amazing tale of fantasy, magic, and soulmates…Rebecca Rivard delivers it all… What do you get when you crack open the pages of Saving Jace by Rebecca Rivard? You get a tantalizing tale of action, adventure, magic, mystery, and yes….shifters! Paranormal romance is a favorite of mine, and shifter tales rate near the top of that list. Ms. Rivard delivers a fantastic world for shifter lovers like myself, filling it with heart, soul, love, passion, and plenty of edge-of-your-seat action. The storyline and plot are unique, and the world created is unlike any other I’ve read. Dark and tortured pasts collide, and fantasy becomes reality in the same breath. The characters are enchanting, their personalities making them unforgettable. A truly sexy tale, in a world that I look forward to returning to soon. Kristie K
Are you purring? 5 FAE LIGHTS “Yeah,” he said with a sheepish smile. “The cat likes you.” Shifters didn’t mix with humans... His cat wasn’t happy, but the man told the cat to suck it up. he didn’t do humans. Now that was blown to hell. She tried not to notice how good he smelled—warm, sweaty male. Down, girl. Sure, the man was sexy in a dark, dangerous way, but he was a fada—and a Baltimore earth fada at that. Everyone knew they were a murderous clan. HOLY SINGING CRYSTALS, What a truly JAGNIFICENT story!! How do you know that this is a great book? When the author has you falling in love with "The Enemies"! LOL And did I ever fall!! Fast, hard, deep...aaand that did not come out quite right! But you know what I mean! Saving Jace is stuffed full with humor, friends, family, love, honor, enemies, mysteries, traitors, passion, shifters, fae, heartbreak and so much more! I did cry a couple of times, but smiled, chuckled, giggled and outright laughed a LOT! I love the ingenuity of the quartz, the things they can use it for, over and above the most basic needs/uses! Given that I hadn't yet read all of The Fada Shapeshifter Series, I eagerly jumped at the chance and surprised even myself by loving this series so much I literally read a book a day, even staying up all night reading Tempting the Dryad (book 3) and then the next night reading this one! However I have to confess that I was a little leery to read this one when I discovered it’s the first book in the Darktime Trilogy about the Baltimore Earth Fada Clan! I had fallen in love with Dion, Cleia, Rui, Valeria, Tiago, Alesia and the rest of The Rock Run River Fada and was loyal to them, so to leave them behind & switch to reading about their rivals made me a little nervous. (and feel a little guilty, like I was betraying them!) *snort* Shame on me! By now I should know better and to trust Rebecca! Because I had ABSO-FADA-LUTELY NOTHING to be worried about! She had me completely captivated from the very beginning! Turns out that they aren't so diff... OOOPS! Almost let a spoiler slip out! Not much else I can say, but I can and will say that I love, Love, LOVE Jace's story!! And that I LOVE that even though we have switched clans, the storylines continue, the stories keep flowing, the same depth, enrichment and everything else I loved from the first books is still there and just like in the first 3 books, we still do see bits of the “other guys” aka The Rock Run River Fadas, further proving that this IS all one big happy, passionate series! With the complex characters, intriguing storylines, perfectly detailed descriptions and the privilege to experience it all through both Jace & Evie's point of view, I was living this story with, for & AS both of them and thoroughly enjoying getting to know The Baltimore Earth Fadas! Everything I have mentioned, and everything I haven't, blends beautifully & perfectly together to deeply enrich and enhance this book, transporting me into it so completely I felt like I could see, hear, smell, feel & live everything as it happened! Rebecca is one phenomenally talented author with the true, strong, exceptional Gift of Storyteller! (If you haven't already read the entire series, I personally recommend reading them in order as it will deeply enhance the Reading Experience! However, they can also be enjoyed on their own too.)
Jace Jones still feels the guilt of not having to protected his sister all those years ago, because of his misplaced prejudices regarding her chosen mate The only thing that keeps him sane is the knowledge that he still has Takiro's daughter, his niece whom he sees on a regular basis. She was found and adopted by the Water Fada Alpha after her father Silver illegitimate son of the Dark Fae Prince was killed and is loved as their own. She turned out to be a Black Cougar Earth Fada like her mother and him. On one of his visits close to where his niece lives, he is attacked and finds himself saved and in the arms of an angel Evie Morningstar. Worst is that his beast is purring in her presence which is a bad thing since he swore to never mate a human. Now his Alpha is giving even more disturbing information about his human. Evie Morningstar is in for some very surprising information about her progeny.
