Synopsis (Goodreads):
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?
Thoughts on Caressed by Shadows: It's been a while since I dipped my toes in this world and, oh, it's good to be back. The vampire politics of the various clans vs the hunters who are determined to wipe them out is so fun. Well, fun from where I'm standing. Probably not so much for the people and/or vampires they're attempting to drop the hammer on.

Good things those vampires have the help of some powerful witches on their side. And, you know, they're fast and strong and downright kickass.

So. Falcon and Sonya. We've seen hints of them in previous books and the forbidden aspect of their previous romance (if you can call it that since they both did their utter best to deny their feelings) made me wonder how they were going to work things out. Between vampire politics and Falcon's loyalty to his king, they seemed doomed to ever reach a HEA.

Not to mention that pesky curse the leaders of the vampire clans have to face if they don't find their destined mate. Madness doesn't look good on most people and it has Sonya in its sights.

Entertaining with some quality sexin', I'm looking forward to the next installment. That setup for book 5 was a doozy!
