Ever since reading Anne Stuart's Ritual Sins, I can't seem to get enough of this author.
Shadow Lover was another Anne Stuart masterpeice. Dark, powerful, with many twists and turns. Eighteen years earlier, Alex MacDowell ran away leaving a distraut mother and Carolyn, the foster child. Now that his mother is on her deathbed, he's back. Is it the real Alex, or an imposter?
Throughout her childhood Carolyn Smith idolized Alex, even though he tormented her. On the night he left, Carolyn followed him to the beach and watched as someone shot him and murdered him. Now another Alex is in the picture and Carolyn has fallen in love with him. Has she fallen in love with an imposter?
Anne Stuart's Shadow Lover is one of those books that grab you from the beginning and you can't put it down until all questions are answered. This is a hands down must read!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sally McDowell is dying and has many regrets, but most of all she regrets the disappearance of her son, Alex, nearly two decades ago.
Carolyn Smith loves Aunt Sally and is very defencive of the woman who treated her like a daughter. Eighteen years ago, she loved Alex, followed him around with stars her in hers. But one horrible night she shadowed him to the beach, saw him meet someone and watch as that person killed Alex. She went into shock, and they found her nearly dead with pneumonia. When she awakes from nearly dying, she finds the family believes Alex stole from Sally and ran away...they are so convincing, Carolyn actually doubts she saw Alex killed, but was part of her fevered imaginable.
Sally and Carolyn's quiet world is rocked when the stranger comes, claiming to be Alex. Sally, so ill, wants desperately to believe this man is her long lost son, but Carolyn knows better. His coming brought the nightmare back, and she KNOWS she saw Alex killed nearly twenty years ago. Yet, the man knows too many small things, knows how she yearned for Alex, but was too young to handle the attaction...and that attraction is still there, only amplified by Alex as a grown man. Despite knowing in her heart she witnessed the 'real' Alex's death, she cannot run from the strong physical sparks they create. Only, is this man here to hurt Sally, steal the inheritance meant for the real Alex? Is her life in danger by the very man who stirs her blood, because unless Sally changes her will Carolyn inherits everything that was to be Alex's?
No one does the blackhearted bad boy better than Anne Stuart. She is the Queen of this sector in romance, and her continual deliver time after time, historical and contemporary, keeps me spellbound with stories that will haunt you long after you put them down.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Multi-millionaire Sally MacDowell, knowing that she will soon die, regrets that her son Alex disappeared almost two decades ago without ever returning. That abruptly changes when an individual, claiming to be Alex, arrives at Sally's home. The claimant insists that he wants to reconcile with his mother before she dies.
Carolyn Smith loves her Aunt Sally, who raised her as if she was her own daughter. Eighteen years ago, Carolyn adored Alex, following him around like a puppy dog. One night, she secretly trailed after him when h quietly walked to the nearby beach. She saw him meet someone, who shot and killed him. However, before she could report her observance, she was hospitalized with a severe case of pneumonia. The family members concluded that the feral Alex took off without a word as befitting his personality. Now, someone has arrived, claiming to be the deceased Alex and Aunt Sally believes him. Worse yet, Carolyn desperately wants to believe him too because she has fallen in love with the seductive intruder, who knows things that only she and Alex shared.
No one writes romantic intrigue better than multi-award winning Anne Stuart does. Her fifty plus novels all share in common the fact that they entertain, frighten, and caress the audience with their suspense and romance. The latest novel from the grandmistress of the sub-genre, SHADOW LOVER, is typical of the awesome author. The story line is filled with increasing danger and doubt while the intelligent characters bring wit and charm. Once again, it is obvious why newcomers are compared to the incomparable Ms. Stuart, who always makes reading a pleasure.

Is he or isn't he who he claims to be? Is Alex really dead or not? Did Carolyn really see Alex murdered on the night he left? Is the man claiming to be Alex an imposter trying to get his hands on his "mothers" millions, or is he really the son he says he he is? This book has it all - suspense, mystery, intrigue, danger and above all romance. Anne Stuart is the undisputed Goddess!I could not put the book down. Thank you Ms Stuart for another terrific read. Five stars is not enough for this book!

I enjoy Anne Stuart's books. She has a really twisted mind, lol. Her heroes ranged from spies, sorcerers, heretics, conmen, and even the Grim Reaper himself! If you want a ride to the darker side of love, where lust, danger, and obsession blend into one exciting shade, read this book.
The mystery is very good. I never know whether Alex is really Alex or not until the very end. And Anne Stuart writes very well.
And I find the characters memorable as well. The dear heroine initially is a doormat, but gradually she regains her backbone. The hero is an intriguing rogue. They make me smile.
