UF Review: Seeker of Shadows [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Seeker of Shadows" the 2nd book in her new Shadow series by Nancy Gideon.

Product Description


His town.

Susanna Duchamps came to New Orleans to settle a debt and to temporarily escape the controlled constraints of her life among the Chosen. What she finds is an opportunity to make miraculous strides with her research into Shifter genetics . . . and an unexpected, but never forgotten, man from her complicated past.

Her rules.

Shifter club owner Jacques LaRoche is fiercely protective of his freedom. Stripped of his memories of a former life, he longs for the mate he lost . . . until the enticingly familiar presence of a mysterious stranger from the north ignites a primal, nearly uncontrollable need to release the untamed beast inside him.

Their last chance.

Susanna dares not tell Jacques it was she who sacrificed his past and her future years ago, to protect him and the secret she carried. But her arrival in New Orleans comes with consequences. When a bloody confrontation erupts between their enemy clans, will she betray her lover once again — or throw her own life on the line so they can finish what they started?

My Review:

Nica Fraser asks shifter geneticist Susanna Duchamps to come to New Orleans and meet at the Cheveaux Du Chien shifter club.  She owes the assassin a favor.  Nica tells her she has a human friend who has been injured and doesn't have a chance to recover and another friend when she bonded with her shifter male his regenerative genes passed onto to her.  Susanna is very excited with the new project but she's uncertain if she should proceed.

Jacques LaRoche is a shifter who happens to be Nica's boss and when he orders her to get back to the floor Susanna recognizes him as her shifter lover of long ago by his voice and scent.  He doesn't remember who she is but knows what she is and it makes him upset.  She disturbs him but he's extremely attracted to her which makes it worse.

Unknown to him he doesn't realize that he has a past with Susanna because his memories were erased brutally.  Though he has obtained success and health he feels lost.  He knows he has a mate somewhere but where?  Susanna has a secret she doesn't want Jacques to know about.

This book was fast paced from the first page to last with a drool worthy hero and a take charge heroine who doesn't let anyone push her around.  Wow there were some very tense highly charged scenes and some pretty hot love scenes.
