What do you do when your father wants to turn you into a vampire and the man who offers you protection has his own, dark agenda?

Shawna Rawley has no choice but to run. Pentim Rawley, one of the most evil vampires who has ever lived, has just discovered that she is his daughter. Now he’s obsessed with finding and turning her. She doesn’t want Pentim to find the people she loves and use them to get to her. She doesn’t want him to find and turn her. She has only one ace up her sleeve. The human in her may be at risk, but in addition to being half vamp, Shawna is also a white witch!

Chad MacFare has an offer for Shawna he thinks she can’t afford to refuse: he’ll protect her from Pentim and his minions. But Shawna doesn’t trust the sexy immortal. She knows he has his own agenda—he wants to kill her father, and he wants to set her up as bait…

Was very surprised by this book!!! Sometimes in books, I tend to skim through some of the more drawn out parts, but this was interesting and the story moved wonderfully. I fell in love with the characters, and the story was fact, I'm looking forward to Damon's story next, just enough mystery about him that I'm hooked!! Well done, Claudy!!

Another great series by Claudy Conn!! I was pulled in right away and found it impossible to put down. I loved the way the story unfolded and the characters were incredible. I have already purchased book 2 in the series and can't wait to start it. I know I will be adding this series to my "must re-read over and over again" list for sure!!

ShadowLove Stalkers by Claudy Conn Shadow Series Book 1 Shawna MacBay, her current last name she’s using since she has run off to hide in Scotland, is trying to stay ahead of the Rawley Clan. Vampires led by her father, Pentim Rawley, who she always knew existed but he only recently learned that he has a daughter. And why wouldn’t she want to meet dear old daddy? He’s a vampire, and a bad one at that, and he will want her to be one of the soulless creatures as well. No thanks! Chadwick MacFare sees Shawna as the perfect bait to finally end Pentim’s life. Chad has his own personal reasons for wanting the vamps existence wiped off this earth for good. But first Chad needs to convince the beautiful Shawna to be the bait that draws Pentim to his trap. Unlike most women who would gladly go anywhere Chad asked….Shawna don’t. What will it take to gain her trust? And gain it quickly as the evil things around them begin to close in. The characters in Claudy's books seem to come alive. Whether it be their Scottish brogues or their unique skills. Alpha men who are taken down by the beautiful women they encounter. She writes so you get to see inside the minds of the main characters and others as well. Sometimes I even get to liking the bad guys because you see what makes them tick but they usually do something evil enough that you don't cry when they are extinguished. We meet a unique vampire in this book as well, Damon Drummond. The second book in this series is called ShadowHeart Slayer and is Damon’s story. **Sexual situations and language

A good paranormal romance filled with vampires, witches, immortals, electricity entities, white magic, black magic and fae skills. These make it sound like a fantasy, but it isn't, an urban fantasy possibly, but definitely is a paranormal romance. Chadwick, an Scottish immortal with visions, is a playa who just wants 'friends with benefits'. He wants to use Shawna as bait to trap an evil vampire. Despite his not wanting to get romantically involved with his bait, he gets a hard-on just from seeing her in a vision. When he tries to talk to her on a Manhattan street, he is actually shocked when she won't talk to him or agree to have a coffee with him. He "had never before been rebuffed by a woman". The more time he's around her, the more he's affected by her, moved by her. He feels it is "so much more than her tantalizing beauty, more than the sexual rawness of a come hither buried inside of her and begging, dripping to be licked.", un huh, he's got it bad. Even though he feels he can't get involved with her, other than to protect her and use her for bait of course, because he cannot offer her a future, he so wants her to want him. He is sure "he had never needed a woman the way he needed Shawna". Shawna, a halfling (white witch and vampire) not yet 25, is a street smart young woman whose father, who has just found out he has a daughter, is the self-proclaimed Vampire Prince and he wants to find and turn her to gain the use of her powers. He is truly evil. So she has to keep on the run until she can come up with a plan to kill him. When she sees Chad for the first time she thinks, "sexy, hot, and handsome in an all too memorable way." She's lonely but feels she must stay alone because she can't drag anyone into the problems facing her. Being a halfling, she requires a little blood, animal is fine, to live and she has many of the strengths of a vampire apparently without the weaknesses. The sexual chemistry of these two jumps off the page. The more she pushes him away, the more he seems unable to keep his hands and lips off her. And she can't seem to stop him. The attraction is hard to deny. She verbally keeps pushing him away but her body keeps trying to keep him close. Unbeknownst to him, she is a virgin. Despite the chemistry, there is really only time in this fast paced, 135 page story for one night of passionate sex. I enjoyed this story very much. The characters are vivid and plot is great. There is bit of foreshadowing perhaps(?) with Damon, Shawna's vampire friend, and an unknown slayer. The only thing that disappointed me about this story is how the evil father is dealt with. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Paranormal romance, urban fantasy and vampire fans should make sure to put this on or near the top of their wishlist.

I love discovering new authors and Con is terrific. Tension between Chad and Shawna is pretty steamy. Love it. Cant wait to read Shadow Heart next.

I loved Claudy's new twist on Dracula's tale. Claudy knows how to write dangerous and mysterious men leaving you wanting to read more of them. So much is going on in this unique tale. All of it blends together perfectly. Shawna and Chad are both independent, secretive and complex individuals. They are a perfect match. Chad comes into Shawna's life just in time to help protect her. They both try to fight the passion between them. Neither want to trust the other completly until they are forced to. Chad is so sexy and his accent is such a turn on making you want him more. He is so confident. The way Claudy describes his chest with his tattoos has you picturing it in your head making you want to rub your hands down his abs just like Shawna wants to. If you are a lover of paranormal and fantasy with a romantic twist you will love this tale. This book was really refreshing. It was very light in the sex department but that didnt take away from the story at all. Im looking forward to reading the next in this series and all the other books Claudy has out.

Title: Shadowlove-Stalkers Author: Claudy Conn Released date: June 1, 2011 Page count: 270 Genre: Fiction, Romance, Fantasy, and paranormal. My rating: 4.5/5 stars Publisher:Create Space My Thoughts: I really wasn't sure what to expect when I was reading this because I won it from another fellow blogger. It took about 20% to fully get into it but the wait was worth it. The Review: The plot takes some time to fully get into because she explains everything over time. It may seem slow at times, but once the story gets going you'll be sucked into it. Shadowlove-Stalkers is mainly going around the vampire and immortals with questions about who they truly are and why. The story had the main conflict that it seemed to stick with normally. It had those small little problems that gave the story feeling. Nothing like a electricity demon thing to only find out some idiot brought his mom back to life. You can see what I thought of him. 03

Avid vampire and paranormal romance enthusiasts are in for a darkly delicious thrill when they sink their teeth into Claudy Conn's newest series, ShadowLove - Stalkers. Conn has a gift for character and plot development that sets her work apart from other romance novelists. There are few romance writers of her caliber, who are able to sustain and build a quality series as she can do. It is a pleasurable gift to all of us that she has launched her writing into the paranormal and vampire sub-genres. Shawna has been running for most of her life. Half white witch and half vamp, Shawna's daddy is Pentim Rawley, the powerful and vicious leader of a ruling vampire clan. Hidden at birth, protected and trained in the magical arts by her grandparents, Shawna has grown into a feisty, independent, beautiful young woman, but she is deeply lonely and now she has to run . . . Pentim has discovered that he has a daughter and he is looking for her. Enter Chad Macfare . . . with secrets and desires of his own. He has visions, waking dreams of Shawna in Pentim's grasp, and what he sees chills him to the bone. Chad is moved to seek Shawna himself, but is torn between the need to protect her and the knowledge that he will have to use her as bait if he is ever to destroy the monster that is Pentim Rawley. This is a deadly game with more at risk for Chad Macfare than losing his heart. Chad is more than he seems. His family has secrets so deep that if revealed would bring them under the eye of the father of all vampires himself, Dracula. Together Shawna and Chad struggle with trusting each other and knowing that the secrets they each keep could place others, innocents, in the hands of pure evil. ShadowLove - Stalkers is filled with steaming action and dramatic tension. Vampires aren't the only monsters taking cover in the darkness of the night. There are other powers introduced for the series, whose intentions and capabilities are yet to be revealed. Claudy delicately plants the seeds for future development and characters without distracting from the excitement and romance of Stalkers. She has taken the best of the vampire and paranormal lore and built in many intriguing twists and avenues, exploring and combing the lore so masterfully that she develops whole areas of the genre left untouched by other writers. The result is that she has a paranormal, vampire series, of romance novels, which carries her own unique and spicy aroma. All that being said and I still haven't mentioned that Claudy fills her stories with enough passion to make the pages spark, sizzle, and steam. She doesn't skimp when it comes to building sexy into her characters. The women are luscious and the men . . . well, the action doesn't stop with the plot. She really knows how to make us tingle with anticipation for her next book. ShadowLove - Stalkers is hot, Hot, HOT . . . and yes, I am blushing.

If you thought you had read everything to do with Dracula, then think again. Claudy Conn - Paranormal Romance Author has given the tale a new twist with her Shadow Love series, of which this is the first book. In this, you get a brief background with a few details to be going on with, and then you are in the action. Finding out who is who, wondering about others, disliking or not trusting yet even more. This is a wonderful story that is well written, well paced and with characters that are fully dimensional and with depth. If you like Alpha Males then you have to choose between Chad and Damon... and even now I'm not sure which one I prefer! There's not as much 'steam' in this book as in others of Claudy Conn's that I have read but that in no way detracts from the story. Excellent start to the series. * Verified Purchase ~ January 2013 * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I definitely was entertained and excited to read more stories. This book has a conclusive end so the longing to read more is purely from the fun ride the author takes you on.

The vampire/witch and the nephew of Dracula meet, get hot, and plan the downfall of an evil vampire who just happens to be her unexpected father. Lots of action, suspense, betrayal, jealousy, and plot twists. Entrancing writing! Grabs you by the brain and won't let go!
