Dark Alpha's Temptation
Carrying Death's orders is my sole duty. I've never had reason to question her, even if I disagreed. But Kyra's fierceness and willpower sheds light on my mission. She drives the darkness of my world away. The answ ...more
However, I did like this pairing. I like that there was no resistance from Dubhan, and I like how smart Kyra is. She may not be a warrior but she has the mind of a leader. She thinks of things others haven't, which looks like it will help in many ways.
I've always loved Donna Grant's "Reaper" series but this installment fell short in comparison to the others I have previously read and enjoyed. I just wasn't invested in the characters nor storyline as much as I wanted to be and overall, the book was just… blah. You know? Sure it wasn't terrible and to some extent I did like certain aspects to Dubhan and Kyra relationship and their journey but there was no wow factor. Sadly this installment wasn't for me yet nevertheless I very m ...more
Another yummy Reaper meets his match.
This was over much too quick. I want to say so much, but most of it would be spoilerish. Let's just say, no I can't say that, it would be a spoiler. Loved seeing Death, Cael and the other reapers, but not near enough of the Dragon Kings. But that's about to change. Man those Others sure are devious. ...more
Dark Alpha’s Temptation is the 9th installment of the Reaper Series. I have no read any of the previous books in this series, and after finishing this book, I have been clearly missing out. Yes, I have the worst habit of reading series like this out of order, but I will say that this book is written so well that I was able to jump in and follow ...more
DARK ALPHA’S TEMPTATION is book nine in the Reapers series by Donna Grant. As a fan of this world, I do think it’s worth reading the books in order. However, I do find that you can still enjoy the romances well on their own.
This particular features Kyra and Dubhan, which are two characters that I’ve really come to enjoy. I find that Grant’s characters tend to be very consistent so if you like one couple you’re bound to like the others as well. She just writes really admirable characters who ...more
Dark Alpha's Temptation is book 9 in the Reaper series and yes you need to read the previous books.
Anyway, as I said before I love this book and I can't wait to read on this series because wow!! THAT TWIST!! Now I need the next book.
I am giving this 5 out of 5. ...more
Another fantastic novel of the reapers. I thoroughly enjoy Donna Grant’s writing style, it’s so easy to slip back into no matter how much time has lapped. She always makes a point to add in all the details needed so that the reader can follow on easily if (like me) they have read many books since the last release! I really liked the characters in this story and can’t wait for the next!

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’m coming for you…
Carrying Death's orders is my sole duty. I've never had reason to question her, even if I disagreed. But Kyra's fierceness and willpower sheds light on my mission. She drives the darkness of my world away. The answers to the Others' goals lie in her past. For Kyra, I will risk going aga ...more

Dark Alpha’s Temptation was a filler book. There was no progression of the Reaper storyline. Don’t get me wrong; I loved the book. It’s just that I wish the storyline progressed a little more.

That being said, I’ll do my review now. Kyra was fascinated by Dubhan and the Reaper ...more
Reaper Novel #9
Dubhan is one of Death’s Reapers and he is being followed. Who is following him? A woman and what a woman she is! Kyra is Light Fae but she has a special gift that allows her to locate Dubhan easily...a rather rare talent as few are able to do such a thing. Once she saw him she was almost inexorably drawn to him and though a bit stalker-ish she really could not pull away.
This is a snippet in the long story of this realm. A few characters make ...more
3.5 stars. The Reaper series has been hit and miss for me. The story inched the overarching plot along but I didn’t feel a connection to characters.
Dubahn is on a mission to find Xanath and is in a villlsge in Ireland when he realizes he’s being followed. Kyra is compelled to follow Dubhan, four times now, after seeing him fight against Usaeil and the Trackers at the Light Castle. Their attraction is instantaneous and danger follows them as they continue Dubhan’s mission toge ...more
Kyra and Dubhan were great as newbie friends, but fell short as long term lovers. Kyra was intelligent and had a good grasp of thinking outside the box with some very good ideas the Reapers hadn’t considered in the fight with the Dragon King’s and the Others. Then there’s Dubhan... okay, so he didn’t really leave an impression on me. Kyra really dominated the story and Dubhan sort of took a back seat to everything happening. Maybe that’s why he didn’t stand out for me?
At any rate, I l ...more
Next up, we have the ever-so-studly Dubhan the Reaper. Even though this novel was tagged "A Reaper Novel" I felt he wasn't put up high enough on a pedestal for the label. In fact, he's quite forgettable. He needed to have more of a stronger character and be less of a sex object. Poor guy.
As far as the series...more
Yay! Another Reaper book. I absolutely love the Reapers, and the Dragon Kings as well. I really liked Kyra and Dubhan and all the Reapers that show up in each book.
This one was about the “Others” who are so powerful that Reapers are worried. They killed 2 of Kyra’s friends and a Fae that once was her lover. And they aren’t even sure Usaeil is actually dead.
This is such good series of novellas.
There was explicit sex in this and the F-bomb is now Fek.
As to the narration: Victoria McGloven does a ...more
The way this was written makes me think that there will be more. Even more so with the way the epilogue ended.
Yes, the day has come and how the events are aligned. I hope that the next books we will see how it will turn out.
In addition to her novels, Donna has written short stories, novellas, and novelettes for digital-first and print release. She has been dubbed as giving the “paranormal genre a burst ...more
