The secrets he knows about her could get him killed.

Transferring to the New Orleans Police Department, Detective Silas MacCreedy has a hidden agenda: to secure his clan’s place once again in the Shifter hierarchy. What he didn’t count on was stumbling upon a sexy assassin who could shred his best intentions and lead him into a dangerous dance that threatens to engage his heart.

But the ones he doesn’t know . . .

Monica Fraser knows just how to make a man beg—for his life. But she has no clue how to fight her attraction to the fiercely intense detective who seems determined to get in her way, both professionally and intimately.

. . . could kill them both.

When emotional attachments to the past and an unexpected glimpse of a different future have her questioning her deadly purpose, Nica must discover the truth about her secret abilities in order to free herself from the forces that control her. But that freedom comes with a price—trusting those she’s been ordered to eliminate.
Hunter of Shadows starts out of the gate with action. Silas and Nica meet when he happens upon her thinking she’s a damsel in distress, but is far from it. The two of them had major chemistry, even when Nica was trying to kill him. The only time she wasn’t trying to kill him was when they were trying to jump each others bones. They both have issues with trust, but can’t seem to stay away from one another.

Nica was unlike any heroine I’ve read before. Sure I’ve read books with strong female leads, but Nica is so much more than that. She could hold her own against the men in this novel and at times best them. Silas is the only one who can get through to her and keep her from her deadly mission.

Nica comes from a tragic past, and Silas come from a place of always being the provider. With his responsibilities to his sister and childhood love, he doesn’t really have anything that’s all about him. Until Nica. Both characters have such depth that you can’t help but to be drawn into their story. As far as his sister Brigit goes, at times I couldn’t stand her, but by the end of the book I was hoping I’d see more of her in the future.

Of course we also catch up with super couple, Max and Cee Cee. These two never fail to entertain. This latest installment in the Moonlight series has twists and turn that I didn’t see coming. I was totally engrossed in this one and could hardly wait to see what was around the next corner for these characters. I look forward to reading book six.
