{November 21, 2008}   Beyond Shadows by NJ Walters

OMG! I have total cover envy. Yeah baby! Syneca is a cover goddess!


An immortal warrior of the Shadow Realm, Blade’s self-control has been honed to a razor’s edge by centuries of fighting, but it vanishes the moment he lays eyes on Jacqueline Harris. The mere sight of her stirs his blood and he craves physical pleasures long forgotten.

Jac is an accountant, not a risk taker, preferring to live her life quietly. That all changes when she is sent to see a client by mistake and stumbles onto a crime ring. Now she’s on the run for her life.

The sexy stranger appears at her beach house, swearing to protect her at all costs. Dark and dangerous, he resembles the assassin she first fears he is. The last thing she expects is that he can morph into the deadly panther tattooed on his chest. The undeniable passion between them flares to life, but it is more than attraction. It is a soul-deep knowing that he will change her life forever. Blade becomes both protector and lover, but it’s up to her to save him from the shadows that haunt him.

Nic’s Recommendation:

Beyond Shadows is the sequel to Shadows Stir, which is part of the Dreams of the Oasis, Volume IV anthology. While each story stands on its own, I highly recommend you read them both because they are great reads! I especially love the scene from Shadows Stir that takes place in the alley. Whoo-damn…that’s hot!

N.J. Walters has created an incredible world, the Shadow Realm, for her Shadow Ryders. Her vivid story-telling never fails to paint incredible imagery for the reader. Blade is one hot alpha with a very tender heart. Jac may be an accountant, but she’s one tough lady. Together, they turn on the heat and keep the reader riveted.

Beyond Shadows is a great read you won’t want to miss! You can find this and all of NJ Walters’ other amazing books at Ellora’s Cave Publishing.


Thank you so much for the amazing recommendation, Nic.

And Syneca is a cover goddess!
