Rancher Annie Monroe is drawn to the dark stranger who turns up on her land wounded and seeking shelter. Going against common sense, she takes him into her home and is drawn into his world of demons and darkness. Believing his tale to be a hallucination brought on the horrors of war, she slowly begins to believe in his fantastical tale when strange deaths start to occur. But Caleb’s strongest power is the desire he stirs in her body.

As a solider, Caleb Tanner is so vicious they nickname him The Reaper. Bitten by a demon, he survives and vows to track down the monster who slaughtered his men. He never wants to bring Annie into his dark battle, but he cannot be without the seductive rancher.

Can Caleb fulfill his destiny and save Annie’s life?

The Reaper’s Seduction is one of my favorite erotic novels of the year so far. It had everything I was looking for – an interesting story, intriguing characters that are most importantly, likable. The sex sizzled. What I enjoyed was the build up of sexual tension between the characters. Ms. Gayle did a wonderful job of making me feel like I was about to explode if Caleb and Annie didn’t have sex!

Another big plus point to the book is the storyline. The vampire genre is saturated with plots that are very similar and I enjoyed the fact Ms. Gayle deviates from the usual ‘brooding vampire meets heroine and she saves his soul’ cliché. Without giving too much of the story away, Caleb’s future ‘reaper’ status was an intriguing twist, one that kept me reading.

Caleb and Annie are both memorable characters – she’s extremely feisty without being overbearing and I loved her attitude to life on the frontier. I also enjoyed the historical western setting for the novel.

Overall, The Reaper’s Seduction is sensual, dark and as seductive as hot chocolate on a frosty evening. I cannot say enough good things about it. A real keeper of a novel.
