Shadow Rider

Book 1, A Shadow Rider Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The #1 New York Times bestselling “queen of paranormal romance” (USA Today) is back with a sexy series starring a Chicago crime family that hides a dark, mystical secret...
Whether it’s fast cars or fast women, Stefano Ferraro gets what he wants. When he’s not fodder for the paparazzi, he commands Ferraro family businesses—both legitimate and illegitimate.
While their criminal activity is simply a rumor yet to be proven, no one knows the real truth. The Ferraros are a family of shadow riders capable of manipulating light and dark, an ability Stefano thought ran in his family alone—until now…
With little left to her name, Francesca Cappello has come to Chicago in hopes of a new life. She wasn’t expecting to attract the attention of a man with primal hunger in his eyes, driven to claim her as his to protect and to please. And if he discovers her secret, it could ruin her...

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 25, 2016 – Feehan (Dark Promises) inflicts an aggressively sexist hero on her hapless heroine in this poorly rendered contemporary paranormal series opener. Set in an utterly generic and implausible rendering of Chicago, the story centers on Francesca Capello, a woman fleeing her tragic past, and Stefano Ferraro, the scion of a wealthy family with a secret they can travel through shadows. Stefano recognizes that Francesca is also a shadow rider and proceeds to take control of her life. Frequently using the excuse that his control is for her safety, Stefano steamrolls Francesca's weak protests and at one point goes so far as to kidnap her from her apartment and force her to move into his penthouse. The plot's attempts to justify Stefano's actions are flimsy, reverting to cartoonish violence so repetitive that the characters comment on it themselves. Even readers interested in an extreme fantasy rendering of a domination/submission relationship are likely to struggle with the unrelenting misogyny thinly cloaked as chivalry.

Customer Reviews

Another amazing series.

Every series I have read by Christine Feehan keeps me wanting more. Another winner with this one.

Great Characters (Spoiler Alert)

Ms. Feehan is an amazing author, and she has some very well developed worlds from what I can tell.

Fated mates are a little hard to stomach, however, when the woman has had sex once, with one man, but the man tells her things like this, (and so do other characters):

“I didn’t care about any other woman, Francesca. Not a single one of them. I used them. They used me. I have a strong sex drive. I’m always hard. Always. I need a woman to give me relief, but I never wanted one for my own. Women were a tool, a body to bury myself in, nothing more. I didn’t know how to have them mean more because I just couldn’t feel anything at all for them, no matter how much I wanted to or tried.” (Excerpt From: Shadow Rider by Christine Feehan)

It makes him a little slimy, no?

Shadow Keeper

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I do not like dominant men in real life, but strong men and women when I am reading are great!
