There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I am coming for you…

I answer to no one but Death. I am impenetrable, impervious, immortal. I exist to do Death’s bidding and no one–not Reaper nor human nor Fae–can stand in my way. Except for the bewitching half-Fae, Catriona. She s

description

I’m not sure I fear Death or the Reaper anymore.

Who would have thought Death wore ball gowns? I had no idea and I can honestly say that I’m now coming to realise that I’m easily influenced. Someone showed me a picture of a bony guy holding a scythe and I never questioned that was what Death looked like. But, then again, I also thought that Death and the Reaper were one and the same. Turns out I got it all wrong. Donna Grant has shown me the errors of my ways and put me on the right track. To be

ARC received for review

Fintan is so closed off that I was surprised how easily he gave into Cat. Then there was Cat's ability that she didn't know she had. Loved seeing all the previous Reepers.

Can someone please kill Bran already and then we can have a new terror to fight. Why does it feel like we will have to wait for all the Reapers to have a HEA before he dies?

So, I keep jumping into these Donna Grant books mid series. Its becoming an annoying habit! However, Dark Alpha's Lover worked for me! I was a little confused at the characters and the dynamics between them, but Grant did a good job of fleshing it out without adding too much background to the story. It did help that I had read the most recent Dark Kings book because the series are intertwined.

Cat is a half fae half human hybrid. Her siblings were as well, but they have been killed. Cat is sure

4 - "Then I met you..." Stars!

The fourth book in Donna Grant’s Reaper series finally gives us Fintan’s story. The quiet one of the group has definitely got more about him that we have seen so far, and it was good to get into this Fae’s head.



And I liked that his story was very focused on him and the woman he falls for Cat Hayes; a Halfling herself, she is dealing with the loss of most of her family through Bran’s Dark Army, but the reasons as to why he has directed his attention on her are less t

I hadn’t realised this is the fourth book in a series when I requested and read it but I have to say, it still worked well even though I hadn’t read any of the earlier books. In this fantasy world there are Light and Dark Fae, humans, halflings and, the elite Death’s assassins who are the immortal Reapers. In this story Fintan is the Reaper who is carrying out an assassination when he is spotted by the half-human, half-Fae Catriona. He’s amazed when she doesn’t panic at the sight, standing, faci ...more

In book four of the Reapers series by Donna Grant, DARK ALPHA’S LOVER has a different tone than the other books. While it still has the powerful heroine and the mysterious hero, I found that I wasn’t completely invested in the story from the get-go. I wondered if it was because of the hero, and while I enjoyed Fintan, I’m not sure that he’s my favorite of the Reapers.

You can definitely read this book as a standalone, but as always, I recommend reading the series in order. While the hero didn’t

Another corker of a story from this author who loved to bring magic and romance together. This the fourth Reaper story sees former dark fae Fintan stepping into the spotlight and having his world shaken up! He's a male who has forsworn emotion although he does remember betrayal and yet he's found his place working for Death . Nothing touches him until a young half fae, half human female stands before him unafraid , resigned and definitely unexpected!

Dark Alpha’s Lover is the fourth book in of Donna Grant’s Reapers series. The writing is rich, the characters are intriguing, and the action both in and out of the sheets keeps me on my toes. Although some have had no problem reading them as stand-alones, there is an ongoing storyline to these books so I recommend reading them in order.

Fintan is a dark fae, in fact, he was the darkest fae of them all before he was betrayed and became a reaper. Since then, he has kept himself completely devoid of

4th installment in The Reapers Novel is the story of Fintan and Catriona. While these can be read as a standalone, I wouldn't suggest it. Each character is continued on to the next book. Each installment are about one of the Reapers finding their mate while in the middle of fighting a war with a spurned Reaper.

Reapers work for Death who is named Elith. Fae are not allowed to know about the existence of Reapers so when Bran told his mate, a Fae, that he was a Reaper Elith killed her, hence the st

Dark Alpha’s Lover is the fourth book in the Reaper series by Author Donna Grant. I first saw the cover of this book on the author’s website and after viewing the synopsis I knew I had to read it! I had learned about the world that this story is set in via Firestorm, a Dark Kings novel so I knew this would be a good read for me. The entire world is just fascinating and I was excited to learn about the reapers who are very much a part of this world, just they are the unseen part.

Of all the books I've read in this series, I enjoyed this one the most.

Finton is the least likely of the reapers to fall in love. He's suppressed his feeling over the years and they are well hidden. As a result, it takes a bit for them to reappear. That meant the instalove feel is missing from this one. The previous books had a lot of instalove in them. Some better done than others. Finton resists, a lot.

The plot felt stronger too. The series plot is richer and brings in the Dragon Kings. It co

DARK ALPHA'S LOVER is a fast and exciting story of family, betrayal and love; very rich in details and completely draws you in. This is my first book in this series but it feels familiar because I recognize characters from the author's Dark Kings series and it's a credit to her writing that having read only two books from two series, I'm not struggling to make sense of the story, but I'm excited about going back to read the previous books and looking forward to reading more upcoming books in bot ...more

Paranormal romance lovers who enjoy alpha males, intrigue and star-crossed lovers, this is the book for you. This series is a spin off of the Dark Kings series and it is the fourth in this series. It can be read as a standalone as Ms. Grant does an excellent job of making needed references and keeping the stories self contained. It is recommended to read all the books because it will give a better view of the world and all the interconnected characters.

This series focuses on the "Reapers". Just

Better than the last one..

This was much better than the last Reapers book. I really liked Fintan and Cat. Fintan had closed off ANY kind of feelings over thousands of years and Cat taught him to feel again. And Cat thought she didn’t have any magic, which she had a lot of. I’m still getting tired of Bran, though. I mean, really, he has to get away in every book? That makes the Reapers look a little worthless, IMO. They all keep trying to kill him by stabbing him. Why doesn’t someone just cut his

Yet again I am jumping into a series that is already and progress. Some portions were no problem for me, others I was somewhat lost.

I absolutely adore Fintan! I just smile thinking about him! I have been dying for his book and finding out why he is the way he is! He is so different from the other Reapers! He is set apart by not only his white hair and red eyes, his life in general. He was the most feared of all the Dark Fae and is still talked about as one of the most deadly among his kind. He was sold to Tarreth, the King of the Dark Fae at a young age to be his slave, trained to be his most lethal assassin, until Tarreth h ...more

Book four of the Reapers series, Dark Alpha's Love, has a different tone. It still has the typical mysterious and strong hero and a powerful heroine but for some reason I liked this story a lot better then the previous books in the series. The story line was good, the attraction between Fintan and Cat was delightful to say the least, and the chemistry! Oh don't get me started.

Cat had to be one of the most interesting heroines by far in this series. Since every member of her family has died, min

Her books continue to surround the reader with sharp details, intrigue, brokenness, redemption, evil, mystery, paranormal happenings and love.

The fantasy world that she's created is complex but believable, her characters are engaging; what I like is that none of them are stereotypically evil or good but have the multilayered depth of personality that are present in real life.

The first time her grandfather had told her of her heritage, she’d laughed, thinking it was a jest. But as they’d walked down the streets of Galway, he began pointing out the Fae.
That was the day her life changed. At eight years old, she’d felt the weight of the world drop upon her shoulders.
