About this ebook

From New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant comes another gripping story in her Reaper series featuring a brotherhood of elite assassins who wage war on the Fae at Death’s behest—and the women who dare to love them.

There is no escaping a Reaper. They are elite assassins, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says a Fae’s time is up, they are who she sends…

The Fae Others think they have me in their grip, but little do they know that I’m working as a double agent. My alliance now lies with the Reapers and Death, and it is my mission and duty to destroy the malignant organization before their rot spreads. Unfortunately, a surprise splits my focus—a more than welcome one. I never thought to reunite with my lost true love. And now that I have, I must find a way to shelter her from the evil Six and convince my new friends that she’s not a threat. Admittedly, there is some doubt. How can there not be? But I trust her. And I haven’t seen her, held her, kissed her for centuries. I loved her then, will love her always, and will do whatever it takes to keep her by my side for as long as we have. Her cunning and courage hold me captive, and our passion knows no bounds. If only the timing were better—and the world safer.

Ruarc gave up his true love, Chavonne, years earlier to take care of his family and fulfill obligations. When Chavonne unexpectedly shows up looking for closure, it's like they'd never been apart (even though it's been 300 years!). Then Ruarc has to give her up again when the Fae Six force him to betray his friend, Rordan and the Reapers, or watch everyone he cares about be destroyed. Chavonne has her on run-in with the leader of The Six, L-*itch (perfect name being bandied about). Will everyone survive the upcoming battle? Phew! So much happens in this book. A new Reaper, love lost and found only to be lost again, betrayal, Ulric and Aisling, Erith and her battle swords, meeting the evil leader of The Six (L-*itch), danger, happiness, steamy scenes. And we get a glimpse of the Skye Druids. The last books of this series should be epic. I cannot wait!!!

DARK ALPHA’S PASSION is the fourteenth instalment in Donna Grant’s contemporary, adult REAPER paranormal/fantasy romance series- a spin off from the author’s Dark Kings series. This is Light Fae Ruarc and Chevonne Quinlan’s story line. DARK ALPHA’S PASSION can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading the series in order for back story and cohesion as there is a continuing premise throughout. SOME BACKGROUND: The Reapers (believed to be a folk lore amongst the Fae) are a group of Dark and Light Fae, selected by Death (aka Erith), on their own deathbed, to do her bidding-Death is the judge and jury; the Reapers are the executioners. The Reapers are not harbingers of death, but are tasked with destroying the Light and Dark Fae who have crossed a line from which there is no return. All Reapers must follow two rules: never to fall in love; and never to reveal their existence to anyone but a group known as the Others, have declared themselves the rulers of the Fae, and their next ‘mission’ is to take down the Reapers, having failed to destroy the Dark Kings. Told from third person perspective including Chevonne and Ruarc, DARK ALPHA’S PASSION sees a new member added to the ranks of Erith aka Death’s army of Reapers. Approximately three hundred years earlier Light Fae Ruarc broke the heart of the woman he loved, a woman who continues to haunt his fantasies and dreams. Fast forward to present day wherein Ruarc will come face to face with said woman, Chevonne, another Light Fae, but a woman who is about to be pulled into the depths of betrayal and power. A war is on the horizon with the group known as the Others, a war in which Ruarc will not survive. What ensues is the rebuilding romance and relationship between Ruarc and Chevonne, and the potential fall-out as betrayal forces Ruarc and Chevonne to take sides in a battle neither won can ultimately win. Meanwhile, Aisling continues to search and keep track of Xaneth, a Fae damaged and broken by torture and brutality but a man determined to exact revenge wherever evil lives. The relationship between Ruarc and Chevonne is one of second chances but Ruarc is caught be head and heart knowing that he is about to betray the people in charge. Chevonne has no idea what is about to unfold, and finds herself forced to make a decision to save the people she loves. The lone $ex scenes is passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful and energetic secondary and supporting characters including the return of several of the couples we have previously met including Erith and her mate Cael, Rordan , Talin and Neve, Catriona and Fintan, Bradach and Maeve, Sorcha and Cathal, Balladyn, Daire, Kyran,Torin, Dubhan, Aisling and Xaneth. We are introduced to Chevonne’s cousin Cillian, her parents Hugo and Clare, and sisters Eileen and Shannon, as well as her father’s sister Lena, and the return of the Druids from the Isle of Skye. DARK ALPHA’S PASSION is a story of betrayal and vengeance, power and control, family and obsession, and rekindling love. The fast paced premise is entertaining and revealing; the romance is captivating; the characters are charismatic and lively.

The Reapers, Erith and their allies are still tackling The Six. Ruarc's family was threatened and he was coerced into working for The Six. But he sees his chance to help overthrow him and makes contact with the newest Reaper, his brother-in-law. He has nothing to lose anymore, o one else to love that the leaders don't know about, no one else they can threaten. except just as he makes this momentous decision Chevonne drops back into his life. Chevonne has always kept Ruarc in the back of her mind. It may have been decades since they were together but no-one has ever matched him in her mind. Her latest beau leaves her cold, she's only really dating him to keep her family happy. Ruarc dropping into her life is a big wrinkle. Chevonne and Ruarc are incendiary together and fall back into each others arms after a false start or two. You will need a hankie or three - this pair is going through the mill and tragedy awaits them. This series just goes from strength to strength.
