As a born hunter, Kadence has been sheltered from the world for her entire life, never allowed to step beyond the walls of her home. It’s not a life she’s happy with, but it’s one she’s come to accept. Everything changes the day her father is slaughtered by a vampire and she escapes the walls that have kept her caged.
After she’s attacked by the monster responsible for killing her father, Kadence is unsure how to react when she’s rescued by Ronan. Though raised to hate vampires, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Ronan as she slowly begins to realize that everything she’s been taught over the years may not be true. Now, she must decide what she wants more; Ronan, her family, or the elusive freedom she’s finally found.

It will shake and stir you in the best of ways. I couldn't put it down.' TheDemonLibrarian.com - Janice
'Kane, the vampire in question, was just ridiculously sexy. I mean ridiculously so; no woman even stands a chance. I wouldn't even bother putting up a fight, to be honest. Just accept the sexiness that is Kane, because resistance is futile. But as well as all that yumminess, he was also a very intriguing and complex character; a real anti-hero and an alpha male of the highest order.' TheDemonLibrarian.com - Lynsey
'Blood Shadows is a wonderful start to a new paranormal romance series by Lindsay J. Pryor… Weaved around the emotional romance is an amazing plot. It has a complex storyline with twists and turns. You won't be able to put this book down, and you'll be wondering what is going to happen up until the last page.' Paranormal Opinion
