Riverina Romantics: Review of Caressed by Shadows (Rulers of Darkness #4)
Black Knight, Falcon Kenwrec is powerful, relentless, and fiercely loyal, his only allegiance – to his king. But he is torn between duty and desire when the war between the vampire clans and the Red Order hunters escalates and the enemy captures the one woman he longs to claim as his own, Sonya Rebane, Queen of the Voidukas Clan. Falcon will risk everything to save her, even if it means forsaking his king.After weeks of imprisonment, Sonya is stunned when the chivalrous knight that she has secretly loved from afar appears outside her cell. As they fight and struggle to elude their enemies, they must battle their overwhelming attraction for each other and their love that is forbidden.
As every perilous moment draws them closer together, every smoldering kiss drives them to the brink of a passionate destruction. Will they be able to resist temptation? Or will their love be their ruin?
I have been waiting anxiously for Falcon and Sonya’s story for what seems like forever. They were so about each other and I’m so glad their story didn’t disappoint. The Journey they go on really proves how perfect they are for each other.
I have loved Falcon since the beginning. He captured me and made me want to know everything about him. He is the epitome of loyal, it knows no bounds. He was respectful and honest, and always looked out for the well-being of others. He knew his place and was dedicated to doing his duty. He always had a strong sense of honor, a perfect warrior in every way. I found all of these qualities to really show how genuine and passionate of a man he was. He took pride in his position and loved everyone around him. He isn’t easily rattled, but when it comes to Sonya, nothing else matters. I loved the struggle in him. To see that Sonya was so important to him that he would risk everything for her was beautiful. It was nice to see someone so in love that they would do anything. It really played to the romantic in me. The passion and love he had for Sonya was a treasure.
Sonya is the kind of woman I’d like to be. She can kick your ass to hell and back, but she is also capable of equal passion. She is danger in a body of beauty. She is respected just as much as she is feared. And although she is so formidable, I found her relate-able because deep down she was a pure-hearted woman in love. She knew the rules, she but loved anyway. She gave her all and was determined to make the best of everything. She was never a weak-willed woman, always planning, always calculating. But when it came to Falcon, all bets were off. Everything was instinctual, emotional. It was an all-consuming, uncontrollable lust that exploded into a kind of love that would last an eternity.
I have to say this story is my favorite so far. I was so in love with both Falcon and Sonya, it was great to see them finally get their happily ever after. I wonder who is next to catch the love bug.
