Review: Dark Alpha's Temptation by Donna Grant
When a being is used to being an elite boogieman for the power fae, it make come as a surprise when the tables turn. Dubhan is one of Death's reapers. He is good at his job and currently, it is all hands on deck to figure out what the Others are planning and to see if they will play a part in the big showdown the Dragon Kings will have against their mysterious foes.
Being a reaper provides Dubhan with the ability to move around unseen. When Kyra is able to follow him around, this shocks him and others. What is it about Kyra that makes her so special? Other than her sometimes ill advised snarky attitude to Death? If Kyra really knew more about Death, I think she would step a little more lightly around the leader of this supernatural SWAT team.
I have to confess, of all the books in this series, this one is not as memorable as the others. It is a sweet read as all of Ms. Grant's books. The characters are fun as they try to understand each other through various miscommunications. Their initial wariness is quickly replaced with admiration and yearning. Will it be possible to be together? Or will their worlds tear them apart? Yes, a bit melodramatic but a reoccurring theme in this series.
What I was hoping to see was more enlightenment on the Others. I was also hoping to find out if the reapers will ally with the Dragons and that we would see some more battles. This provides some good hints of what will come. The storyline just feels a bit drawn out. I am eager to read the next book in this series. Recommended to paranormal romance readers who enjoy the battle between good versus evil.
