5.00 · 1 ratings · Published: Oct 12th, 2015 |
After the Great War and subsequent Cataclysm, nations lay decimated across the globe. Borders fell, economies were ruined, and lawlessness prevailed. Amid chaos and uncertainty, the Jaeger Consortium rose up as the beacons of chivalry, truth, and justice. They were the international investigators, police, judges, and executioners with the sole purpose of hunting those who sought to oppress the weak. Charity Carmichael, Countess of the Theocracy of Dixie and heiress to the Carmichael fortune, returns home from University to find she is to be married to Baron Edward Spence III at summer’s end. Charity does not love, or even like, Eddie. She longs for real love and adventure, but she must do what her parents and society expects of her. But while dolefully planning her wedding, she is surprised to learn that her bank accounts have been drained. Charity requests permission to travel to the tropical island of Elysium to visit her best friend, Ayla, while the investigation into her lost finances takes place. What was to be a simple last vacation as a single woman, quickly becomes the type of adventure in lust and love that she’s yearned for. Ayla introduces Charity to her dangerously handsome and flirtatious accountant, Lucas Wolverton. As a favor to Ayla, Lucas uses his position within the Consortium to conduct his own investigation of Charity’s accounts, while attempting to win Charity’s affection. As the investigation deepens, Charity cannot resist Lucas’s charm and she begins developing a strong desire for him—a desire she has only read about in the erotic novels she secretly enjoys. Charity struggles to resist while Lucas shows her a world wholly different from the Theocracy of Dixie; a world of passion and intrigue, where people are encouraged to follow their hearts and desires, not society’s expectations. Shadow, the first book in the Jaegers Consortium series, is a story of romance, lust, crime, and mystery that’s set in a world of steam-powered transportation and elaborate décor. Join Charity as she navigates her way through the danger and conflict.
