Dark Alpha's Temptation by Donna Grant
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This world is so vast and has so many moving parts, but somehow this author manages to focus in on new pairings each time, while simultaneously moving the larger storyline along.
If you're joining this story already in progress, welcome! There are dragon kings and reapers, fae and "Others," all fighting for different things. We go by TV show rules, where if you don't see a body, chances are good that someone is still plotting and lurking. We also believe that everyone is fated to be mated, and we will find a way to pair everyone off, even if it takes 100 books! In this one, we get Dubhan, a reaper who I'm sure I am not pronouncing right. He's gruff and determined to be the best reaper for Death, but he is also strangely drawn to his latest stalker, Kyra.
For those of you who didn't go through all the Rhi drama, there was a big fight at the end of a previous book, where the reapers stepped up to fight on the side of good instead of remaining impartial. This particular fight is what Kyra magically witnessed, and where she first saw Dubhan. There's a lot wrong with what happened, but the right thing is her magical pull towards him. These two are seriously fated mates, so if you're looking for a drawn out courtship, this ain't it. There's some sexy times, lots of quick love declarations, and ultimately a lot of big plot reveals! Who doesn't love that combo? I do, so I'm all in for the rest of this world.
