"Sizzling magical sexual tension"

This second installment of the Doomsday Brethren begins soon after the events of the first book. Caden hates magic. Unfortunately, he was born into a family of magic users. For years, he has ignored his family, moved away, and lived a normal life. But, when his elder brother becomes sick, he returns to England and is drawn into the war brewing within the magical community.

Sydney is a reporter for a tabloid. She wrote a story about recent magic attacks, but most readers assume the story was fictional, except for those in the magical community. To learn the names of her informants and keep the story from spreading, Caden is assigned to watch Sydney.

Caden and Sydney have an instant bond, but both are afraid of the consequences of their attraction. Can they survive the coming war and overcome their emotional fears?

I really enjoyed this book. The pacing was well done and balanced between the sizzling love affair between Caden and Sydney with the dramatic elements of the war. The two aspects of the story are tied together, keeping interest and building intensity during the course of the story. I was drawn to Caden's character because he is incredibly broken by the events of his past. His relationship with Sydney could save him or break him further. Plus, the sexual tension is incredibly intense.

Seduce Me in Shadow hints at the next book, teasing the reader into wanting more. I cannot wait!

When a villainous wizard escapes from exile, the devastatingly sexy Doomsday Brethren must defend all magickind in the spellbinding second book in bestselling author Shayla Black’s seductive new paranormal series.

Ex-Marine Caden MacTavish has shunned his magical heritage all his life, but he will do anything to heal his desperately ill brother, a Doomsday Brethren warrior in mourning for his missing mate. Posing as a photographer, Caden must convince firecracker tabloid reporter Sydney Blair to reveal the source of her recent exposé on a supernatural power clash. Unfortunately, keeping his hands off the sizzling redhead proves as hard as getting them onto the potent and mystical Doomsday Diary he discovers at her bedside. A bloody rebellion led by an evil, power-hungry wizard is imminent. If Sydney divulges the book’s existence, she will jeopardize magickind’s most deeply guarded secrets and become the ruthless wizard’s number one target. Caden has never trusted magic’s cruel and dangerous powers, but he will protect Sydney with his life and magic—even if it means risking his heart.
