Plain Brown Wrapper: Shadow Lies - Dawn Montgomery

 

This is a tantalizing prelude to either something upcoming for Ms. Montgomery or something on the back burner - I do hope it is the former. The general layout sounds exciting; with one very determined man and woman with a chip on her shoulder, and a whole lot of trust issues.
Alexander, a vampire returning home after fifteen years, comes face to face with Kris, a past lover he had never forgotten. He is back to claim her, but it would appear; this may not be as easy as he thought, as something is coming, and Kris is not the same girl he left behind.
Kris comes face to face with a past she didn’t expect to find, whilst in the heat of battle. Lust rules the moment and although older and wiser, she throws caution to the wind and indulges. After all she is not the same girl from fifteen years ago, or is she.
SHADOW LIES takes place in the time of vampires, demons and spells and their counterparts, guardians, protector and avenging angels. Kris and her team mate Shanna are two of the latter. They are swift, concise and determined, and they take no prisoners.
I loved all the innuendo of time passed and chanced missed tension that are in these few pages. If the love scene is a taste of things to come - bring it on.
I am shivering in anticipation for the rest of this book; tension, lust and regret are all here.
Great read from Ms. Montgomery.
