Shadow series #1
by Christine Feehan
a Suspenseful Paranormal Romance
In SHADOW RIDER, Stefano Ferraro commands the family businesses—both legitimate and illegitimate—and is used to getting what he wants. The family’s criminal activity is a well-established rumor, but no one knows the truth. The Ferraros are a family of shadow riders, capable of manipulating light and dark.
When Francesca Cappello comes to Chicago desperately seeking a quiet, peaceful new life she didn’t expect to attract the attention of the most powerful and dangerous looking man she’d ever seen. The way Stefano looks at her makes her want to trust him with everything, but if he finds out her secret it could ruin her.
Review by pearls
I loved this book! It combines the darkness of an Italian mafia storyline with the fantasy of a paranormal romance. Francesca is a strong female character, reluctant to lean on anyone for help. Stefano was raised to help people under his care. As she sees his love for the community members, she warms up to him. Meanwhile, we see the ugly underbelly he fights against. He has a cast of memorable family members, each deserving of their own stories. Enjoyable start to a new series.
