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 shed 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 against Death’s wishes. For her…I will battle the past and the future itself.

Title: Dark Alpha’s Temptation
Series: Reaper #9
Author: Donna Grant
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Published: January 7, 2020
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Dark Alpha’s Temptation may have been a shorter book, but it certainly delivered on danger, escalation of situations, sizzling chemistry and the intricate twists I now expect from every Reaper story (along with the connecting Dark Kings series).
Kyra and Dubham are a truly intriguing couple considering their differences, yet those same differences are a draw as well. I was, once again, easily caught up in this world and didn’t step away from my Kindle until the final page was turned. Getting to run into other favorite characters from this series is always a surprise and a delight for me, so be prepared to reunite with some old friends.
However, I don’t feel comfortable saying much more since I believe most of what I could say would be considered in the spoiler zone, and it is never my intent to spoil a story for a future reader. Let’s leave it at Dark Alpha’s Temptation brings us closer to the epic battle we all know is coming, Dubham and Kyra are a unique, sexy couple that I enjoyed on all levels, and I’m definitely looking forward to what comes next. These connecting series just get better and better, in my opinion, as the ultimate battle comes closer. You “could” step into this world at this point and enjoy yourself – but if at all possible I’d still recommend starting from the beginning for they are all intricate pieces of an overall puzzle and damned good stories as well.
