When a villainous wizard escapes from exile, the devastatingly sexy Doomsday Brethren must defend all magickind in the spellbinding second book in bestselling author Shayla Black's seductive new paranormal series.
Ex-marine Caden MacTavish has shunned his magical heritage all his life, but he will do anything to heal his desperately ill brother, a Doomsday Brethren warrior in mourning for his missing mate. Posing as a photographer, Caden must convince firecracker tabloid reporter Sydney Blair to reveal the source of her recent exposé on a supernatural power clash. Unfortunately, keeping his hands off the sizzling redhead proves as hard as getting them onto the potent and mystical Doomsday Diary he discovers at her bedside. A bloody rebellion led by an evil, power-hungry wizard is imminent. If Sydney divulges the book's existence, she will jeopardize magickind's most deeply guarded secrets and become the ruthless wizard's number one target. Caden has never trusted magic's cruel and dangerous powers, but he will protect Sydney with his life and magic -- even if it means risking his heart(courtesy of amazon)
2nd in the Doomsday Brethren series, I was closing book 1 and opening this book moments later. Black dives you right in to keep the momentum. Seduce me in Shadow follows Tempt me (book 1) and keeps you engrossed in the series. Some how Black manages to toss in little twists that keep you reeling for each one of the brethren in this book.
Action comes only second to the steamy scenes between our leading wizard brother – Caden mixes the human soldier with the mysterious magic world all wrapped up in a hot package. Sydney is one woman we can relate to, as she is working to be successful, prove herself, and gives that spunk when needed.
As the romance unfolds, the story still holds onto the battle to keep the world – both magic and human – safe. Wrapped up in it all is the choices Caden must make to protect his Sydney, his brother, and his brethren. I say it again, Black twists up little stories for each of the boys and keeps you burning for more.
