BOOK REVIEW & TOUR Seeker of Shadows by Nancy Gideon @NancyGideon @Pocket_Books

Book Description

May 29, 2012 Series: Moonlight #6
Susanna Duchamps risks discovery in New Orleans to settle a debt and to temporarily escape the controlled constraints of her place among the Chosen. What she seeks in the shadows and finds is an opportunity to make miraculous strides with her research into Shifter genetics . . . and an unexpected, though never forgotten, link to her complicated past.

Shifter club owner, Jacques LaRoche is fiercely protective of his freedom. Stripped of his memories of a former life, he longs for the mate now lost to him . . . until the enticingly familiar presence of a mysterious stranger from the north ignites a primal, nearly uncontrollable need to release the untamed beast inside him.

Susanna dares not tell Jacques that she was the one who sacrificed his past and her future years ago to protect him and the secret she carried. But her arrival in New Orleans comes with consequences. When a bloody confrontation erupts between their enemy clans, will she betray her lover once again or throw her own life on the line so they can finish what they started?

About the Author
Nancy Gideon has written award-winning category romances, historical and paranormal bestsellers,  earned a “Career Achievement for Historical Adventure” and a HOLT Medallion, and has had two original horror screenplays optioned for film. A Michigan native, she works full time as a legal administrative assistant.



This story starts off brilliantly with a lot of action in the form of a mysterious woman betraying her lover and you will have to read through the book to find the exact details.  Susanna has turned in her lover, Jacques, all those years ago and striped his mind of memories.  Now she owes the assassin, Nica, a favor that may cause her to betray Jacques again.  Susanna is a hard character to unravel since she seems so secretive.  It takes a few pages to really understand that her background and childhood really play into her nature.  I did warm up to her though.  Even though, Max and CeeCee are only briefly mentioned, I did miss the pair but this new arc of Susanna has drawn my attention.  Gideon really knows how to weave a mystery with wonderful paranormal elements.  

Jacques was totally swoon worthy and I like that he was much easier to get to know, even more so than Max.  There are some seriously hot parts to this read as well as enough action to keep me interested.  Since this is the sixth installment of the series, it does help to have read the previous ones but I think this one can stand alone because of the new characters and direction.  I really enjoyed this one and fans of Larissa Ione and Nalini Singh should really check this out.
