There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…

Reborn to serve, I have never once questioned Death’s directives. Until my mission leads me to a Halfling who stirs things within me that I’ve never felt before. Sorcha’s past intrigues me, but not as much as the gorgeous and stubborn Halfling herself. Though the Others are no more, our enemies still lurk around every corner. I can feel it. But for her, I will battle whatever comes my way—be it present dangers or ghosts of the past.

Dark Alpha’s Caress comes after Inferno of the Dark Kings series. Since I did not read these in order, and it’s been a long time since I read Inferno, there are a few things I’m kind of behind on. For instance, I think something happens in Inferno that makes Dark Alpha’s Caress start off on another story arc. I can sort of guess what happened, so I’m just going to flow into this story.

We start off with the Skye Druids. We have seen them here and there along the series, but Dark Alpha’s Caress will really bring them out. Sorcha is a halfling who has been in her house alone for the last 10 years. She does not practice her magic at all since she blames herself for the loss of her mother and sister. Rhona, her cousin has heard some things about Druids forming their own group like the Others. She really needs someone to investigate. Rhona believes the best way to spy on these Druid’s meeting is to have Sorcha climb up the ridge and listen in. She has some trouble coming down because of a storm, but a big, handsome guy just happens to be at the bottom of the ridge to catch her.

The Reapers have also heard the rumors about the Druids and therefore send Cathal out to investigate. He spies Sorcha and has the pull to follow her. He blames it on the need to find out what she knows. But he becomes very protective of her. Aisling makes an appearance to try and help Cathal be able to keep watch over Sorcha without questions.

As he watches, interesting things happen, besides the attraction between them. Fae seem to be coming from everywhere with this weird attraction to Sorcha. The story that evolves from this phenomenon really had me glued. Little by little Sorcha’s world is blown apart by revelation after revelation. During one skirmish Cathal & Aisling find themselves in dealing with what seems to be a new threat.

I truly enjoyed Dark Alpha’s Caress. Everything was so new to Sorcha. She is tough though and I feel like a great match for Cathal. I loved the way everything played out throughout the book. It built step by step each it’s own revelation. Great way to keep me from putting the book down.
