Enslaved In Shadows (Shadow Unit #1)
Expected publication: June 18th 2012 by Book Rhythm
A man's Past leads to his Future......
Agent Stone of the Shadow Unit's job is simple, most days. Work in the Shadows, police his own Kind.
When an unwanted assignment turns out to be his darkest fantasy from the past, Draven can't help but be conflicted by the memories of the past and his responsibilities in the future. But his decision has been made.
The Heart of a woman is Tested........
Jes can't let the tall dark agent back into her life.
How can she trust any man after what she's endured? Years of abuse have broken her down and she doesn't have room for more. The man she turns to for help hasn't abused her physically but he's tormented her emotionally. A past betrayal left her scarred, but also brought her life.
Can she accept him into her heart and trust him again?
One will survive and adapt, the other will realize hearts can be mended even if it’s a bit too late.
The road to forgiveness sometimes only brings more pain. Unexpected events set their lives on two separate tracks leading to one outcome. Lives will be changed and an emotional battle to save their souls will leave them both trapped and enslaved in their need for one another.
My rating 5 / 5
Awesome, this book is a pure delight! I honestly did not expect this kind of story: I subscribed to Tigris's newsletter on her website and I had the chance to read the first chapter of Enslaved. I was done; I wanted to know the rest of Draven and Jes's story!
Jes is on vacation with her friend when she meets Draven. They share a wild night together (They didn't even exchanged names!) and never seen each other after this one night stand. A few years later, Jes and Draven will encounter again on a different and peculiar field. Draven is part of a special unit filled with paranormal agents and Jes is asking for their protection in exchange of her help to track down a dangerous vampire who's actually her ex-husband.
Everything in this story is amazing! I like Tigris Eden style and she knows how to put her readers on the edge! The suspense around the general plot is unsustainable and I want to tell you why, but it will ruin everything (or a major part)!
Jes is strong, courageous and a beautiful woman. I felt a connection with her because she's a smart mouth and no one does will push her aside! I love her personality and I easily saw myself in this character!
Draven was also my kind of alpha male: werewolf, dark but not too much, sexy, nice shape: muscular, possessive of his mate, willing to give up everything for his female! Yes my kind of PNR male!!!
The plot was super exciting! Finally something different! It's not that the plot is brand new, but still: refreshing and unusual, this story was a ''page-turner'' and I thought about it night and day! We even met new or mixed paranormal creature, even now, I'm not sure about some of them!?!
The best part was the ending: OMG what would I give to see this part of the story in real life or in a movie! I just don't know what to say or words to use to express my feeling when I read the final chapter! Speechless! LOL
Enslaved is a MUST READ, I think it will suit every kind of PNR Lover!
There is really not much to say... I love to write, read, and listen to music. My attempt at a music career sadly ended at the Apollo one warm night in May! LOL (Side note: I was not booed just outdone by two munchkins rapping to Biggy Smalls but they were good!)
Military brat extraordinaire; have traveled to a lot of interesting places.
The very first time I put pen to paper in story fashion, was in 6th grade. It was called The Case of the Missing Pepperoni.
It was a cute mystery where all the ingredients and shop appliances came to life when the store owner closed up for the evening.
Sequel: Burned in Shadows
