Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one th

After not loving some of the more recent offerings from this series - I'm talking about you Reaper's Fall and the even worse Reaper's Fire...


Sorry, Gage/Talia flashbacks...

As I was saying.

After the two catastrophes mentioned above, I was a little wary about where the next book might take us - and whose dirty snatches our supposed "Heroes" might find their dicks buried in - but thank GAWD this one was not like that.

I really enjoyed this little nugget.

Once again, we are privileged to be able to spend more time with the REAPERS MC. They are one of my favorite outlaw biker gangs. Each Hero we meet is over the top ALPHA and oozing with panty melting sex appeal! They’re rough around the edges and most definitely caveman-ish, but somehow

Biker/Reaper fans this novella is so worth the read! Joanna Wylde’s writing and storyline all equated to one solid story with a bunch of likable characters. The story starts with our heroine helping support her sister and nieces by working at The Pit, a biker bar. Mandy is in a relationship with a biker named Rebel. Rebel shockingly makes a deal with Shade, the national president of the Reapers Motorcycle Club and things get very interesting.

I have read all the books from Reapers MC series and when I saw this novella I was so excited to read it because I missed this world and Joanna's writing. Shade's lady is a sweet, fun and sexy read!


I loved Shade, he is sweet, hot and bossy. He couldn't have a better girl than Mandy. This girl is strong, independent and funny. I loved their chemistry and connection. They are hot together and sweet.

The plot is interesting and refreshing! If you are looking for a fast paced story with a

Shade's Lady is a short novella set in the Reapers MC world. In it we're introduced to Mandy, an overworked waitress at a biker bar who's trying to get her life straightened out. Which means her plan does no include Shade, badass biker. But when her no-good boyfriend (now ex) tricks her into going to the Reaper's club with Shade all of those plans change.

I really enjoyed this book and getting to see more of the Reapers. This has been a favorite series of mine for years, and this book give me ye

I’m really becoming a fan of these 1001 Dark Nights novellas.  I’ve read several over the past few months and they’ve all been exceptional!  The same holds true for Shade’s Lady!  Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reaper’s MC to tell Shade and Mandy’s story.

Here’s the breakdown:  Shade is the National President of the Reapers MC.  Because of that, he rarely stays in one place too long.  He travels around to all the local chapters.  Moving on has never been a problem for him until Mandy.

Shade’s Lady is the kind of fairytale I can get behind!

As a young girl, I’ve always thought Prince Charming was a pansy-assed prissy marshmallow type of man. Why any girl would fall for a Prince Charming was a mystery to me. Now though, after getting a glimpse of Joanna Wylde’s version of Prince Charming, I suddenly understand the attraction.

Shade (Hello, even his name is sexy) is not only a biker, he’s president of the Reapers MC. He’s badass and scary as hell but oh so very hot. This anti-hero

If you’ve never read any MC book for fear it would be too gritty and violent for your palate just try Joanna Wylde’s books. Even better, read this novella to make up your mind.

I love her books! They always have:

Shade’s Lady had everything I love about a Reaper’s story. In fact, this one took me right back to the feelings I had when I first read about Horse and Marie – they are the reason why I fell for Joanna Wylde’s unique story telling.

Shade wanted Mandy the moment he first laid eyes on her. She works at the local bar in a small town, about 30 miles away from the Reaper’s clubhouse. There is just something about her, could be that she appears unaffected by his interest which makes her even more desir

Another awesome novella in the 1001 Dark Nights series.

I love this series.

After reading Kristen Ashely’s Rock Chick Reawakening and K. Bromberg’s Sweet Rivalry I had the pleasure of reading Joanna Wylde’s Shade’s Lady.

I love her Reapers MC, and have been looking forward to every single book so far. Lucky me Shade’s Lady didn’t disappoint in the slightest.

Shade had his eyes set on Mandy from the very first moment. Even so she was in a “relationship” with Rebel, a weekend biker, he couldn’t’ get h
After quite a few misses from this series Shade's Lady was brilliant, it really was. And the best thing .... not a single TSTL move was pulled.

So why not 5 stars?? Because there was no fricking ending to the book! I was happily reading away and gearing myself up for the big finish and ......... nothing! The damn thing just ended right there with a sort of(ish) HFN.

I've had this gem sitting on my kindle waiting for me, but I even though I did pre-order it I was a little nervous to actually buckle down and start reading. It's been awhile since I've read a Reapers book, or a MC book for that matter, and I remember thinking after I finished the last book in the series, I may be over this.

I'm so glad to say, TOTALLY NOT OVER THIS!! Once I got into this story and the characters started to form I was hooked. I love Mandy and I think Shade is pretty damn

It's been ages since I read a Reapers, I'd forgotten how good they are.

This was the shortish story of MC President Shade and Mandy, a down on her luck bartender.

I loved the way Shade pursues her, in his gruff and growly hot ass way. Naturally he has a huge reason for his cockiness, but he's never wanted anyone to stick around until Mandy, so that was satisfying to read too. The chemistry was scorching and the smut was hot so not much to dislike. I wish it had been longer because I was enjoying

I am completely, totally, unapologetically in love with the President of an outlaw Motorcycle Club! Shade is the s***! I did not expect to love this book this much. Shade is a badass sweetheart- not like a mushy, pushover kind of sweetheart, but a take charge BA alpha male, don't mind killing someone, President of an outlaw motorcycle club kind of sweetheart.

Joanna Wylde is back, and she’s nailed it with this short, sexy, funny and dramatic MC novella that is a fantastic read from start to finish. It’s set in the Reaper’s MC World but doesn’t really tie in to the other books in the series so can easily be read as a standalone. It features Reaper’s National President, Shade, and introduces his kickass heroine, Mandy.

Mandy is a down-on-her-luck waitress who has had a hard time, but who has moved to a dead-end town in Idaho to help her sister

Batman was stronger than Wonder Woman. Fucking stupid men.

And so we briefly return to the Reapers MC world with Shade and Mandy who deliver a funny, sexy and the longest one night stand to exist. Mandy has bad luck when it comes to men. From jail to her situation that mixes with Shade, she can't catch a break. With the help or not help of Wonder Woman, Mandy gives in to the temptation of Shade but not without her demands.

Shade has been interested with Mandy for a good while but he was biding

I was about to swear off this author for good after the last craptastic books from her. But there was a blizzard today. I'm stuck in house with five kids, three dogs, six puppies and four read this book I did....and it was great! It reminded me quite a bit of Reapers Property, my fav book from her. She recycled a few elements there but the story was good. I kinda wished we got more of an HEA here instead of HFN. But it was good. Five stars by default for not sucking like last few book ...more

Surprisingly sweet (for a MC) story with Shade, yes another Shade a Reaper this time not a Lost Rider, in love lust with Mandy's nice cleavage, even better rear end and her sassiness. Mandy is a hoot. She knows she makes terrible choices with men and plans on changing that at some time. She's just not sure when.

Shade is not exactly a knight on a white charger, but he is not as bad as he thinks he is. He's faithful, looks for ways to extend their ONS that's not really a ONS, and helps save the da

4.5 stars

To be honest, I didn’t recall Shade from the other Reaper’s novels, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the hell out of him. He was just as sexy and confident as all of the other Reapers, and adding in the title of ‘National President’ made him just that much more badass. The novella was fun and dirty and trashy (I mean that in the best way possible) and as every MC story that Joanna Wylde writes, I can always count on it to deliver. She is the standard up against which
This was a super-quick, easy, raunchy read for me. It's part of the Reapers MC series, but can be read as a stand-alone. If you're already reading this series, you'll want to check out this novella about the President of all the Reapers (and the youngest one in their history--I'm guessing mid to late thirties?)--Shade. (Sorry, but I cannot recall his full name--if one was even given?) Shade's been mentioned a time or two in the previous books, but we don't know much about him.

What we do know:
I didn't realize HOW MUCH I missed Joanna Wylde's MC men until I DEVOURED Shade's story!

"I'm out, Shade. I don't want to be part of your world."

Badass bikers, feisty females, raw and unadulterated passion around every corner? Yep, this MUST BE a Joanna Wylde MC Romance. This fast-paced biker-filled piece of goodness has EVERYTHING to get your motor runnin'. Filled with drama, suspense, and overprotective alpha-deliciousness, SHADE'S LADY pulled me in from the very beginning and wouldn't let me

Mandy has terrible luck with men. She literally has no good experience with a man any time in her life. Shade is the president over all the Reapers. He's alpha of course. He's had a thing for Mandy and has just been waiting for an opportunity to pursue it. Mandy secretly has sexy thoughts about him also, but she's afraid of his lifestyle and her track record.

I liked both leads and most of the supporting characters. Nothing feels over

It really has been way to long since I've read a Reaper's MC novel (not that I'm blaming anyone) but reading "Shade's Lady" really brought home just how much I'd missed my biker bad ass boys and their crazy way of life. This delicious little novella was classic Joanna Wylde. It really was. There were the thrills, spills and drama that go hand in hand with the Reapers and then of course there
