Giovanni Ferraro, known to the paparazzi as the wealthy
playboy, is in truth a member of a family who uses shadows
to bring justice to those who might slip through the legal
system. Right now he is bored, because of the screws and
metal in his leg for recuperating from being shot, he can't
use the shadows to work. This SHADOW KEEPER has to play the
part that he hates, the spoiled bad boy. Unfortunately, he
is overheard talking about a "game" he devised to entertain
his fellow wealthy Ferraro brothers and cousins with the
women who were throwing themselves at them. Words he wishes
he could take back, but something about Sasha Provis pulls
him in and his legendary control is going haywire.
Sasha Provis is thrilled to be on the top tier of the
nightclub she waitresses in. It means better tips, but some
of the drinkers are obnoxious. She knows how to protect
herself, having grown up on a cattle ranch and now surviving
in Chicago. The last thing she expects is to be first
propositioned by one of the owners, then protected by him.
She doesn't have time for any man in her life and a man like
Giovanni Ferraro is a big mistake. So why is she finding
herself irresistibly drawn to the mystery man.
SHADOW KEEPER takes us back into author Christine Feehan's
Shadow world in this explosively, twisted continuation. I
loved Sasha! She tried so hard not to fall for Giovanni's
bad boy persona, but kept getting glimpses of the real man,
the shadow rider and that man succeeded in drawing her in
deeper. Giovanni put his foot in his mouth with Sasha and
really tried to get the other one in too, before he finally
came back into control. But having done so, he had to work
harder to get Sasha to see the real man.
The Ferraro family
is amazing as they are always right there for one another.
In this book, they rallied around Sasha and her brother, the
heartbreaking real reason Sasha is in Chicago, without
question. The only pain in the family continues to be
Eloisa, the mother, whom I had hoped would mellow after the
death of her husband. Instead, she seems to get worse,
haranguing everyone she doesn't believe belongs in her
family. One of the best moments in SHADOW KEEPER was when
Sasha got in her face, not for insulting her, but for
bringing up her brother and insulting him. Adding another
personal note, the situation between Emmanuelle and Val has
me even more intrigued by this "Romeo and Juliet" couple
and can't wait to see what happens next though a lot of
what they are going through is shrouded in mystery. There
is also Nicoletta and Taviano we have to keep an eye on.
Hopefully these are all hints of future books to read in
this amazing series.
SHADOW KEEPER is in a word -- a keeper! If you love hot men,
sexy women, the good guys winning against the bad guys, love
(both sweet and ultra steamy), and family that stands
together then this book is all that and even more.
One family brings its own brand of justice to the streets
of Chicago's shadowy underworld as #1 New York Times
bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to a series hot
enough to burn...
The paparazzi can't get enough of infamous bad boy Giovanni
Ferraro. But unknown to them--and the women he beds--he's
just playing a role. Keeping the spotlight on himself keeps
it off the family business. And if this lethal shadow rider
can't hunt in the dark, he'll find his pleasure elsewhere...
Sasha Provis grew up on a Wyoming ranch and thought she knew
how to protect herself from predators. But in the nightclub
where she works, she's fair game--until one of the owners
steps in to protect her. Giovanni is gorgeous. He's
dangerous. And his every touch takes her breath away.
The devil at her heels may have finally met its match...
