Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is about mighty warriors who are sworn to protect humanity, shape-shifters known as the shadowmen who move between two worlds. Dr Annette Batista is searching for her missing sister, finds an amulet and inadvertantly summons a shadow warrior, this book is a carry on from 'Touch a Dark Wolf' which is the first of the series. The book has an okay plot although the heros tend to spend a lot of time 'naked' as they dont understand why they should wear clothes. I expected more 'shapeshifting' in the book and I wouldn't class it as a 'werewolf' novel, but more of a sci-fi/romance with the typical good versus evil and the everlasting love between the heroine and hero. The 'Evil' is a hero gone bad who is trying to create more 'baddies' to rule the world and of course the only thing standing in their way are the 'shadow men' and their stubborn but brave females.
I bought this book so as to try another author whilst waiting for my favorite authors latest books, its an okay read but in my opinion not up to the standard of Cole, Ward, Hamilton and Feehan who I am an avid fan of as I like a book that you can't put down.

More than just a romance - but still it sizzles... 8 Sept. 2007
By melindeeloo - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
One thing I really like about the Shadowman paranormals is that the author, Jennifer St. Giles, not only fleshes out her main characters but also allows them to grow through their experiences. She also makes excellent use of her supporting cast, carrying them forward from her previous book The Shadowmen: The Lure of the Wolf (Book 2). While there is plenty of steamy stuff to keep the romance fans sated, the characters both good and bad are developed so well that they have life beyond the pages and the plot framework gives them a reason for that life.

Annette and Aragon move to center stage in this book. Each has a quest that they are totally committed too. Wolf-shifter Aragon's is ridding the world of his evil former mentor Pathos. Aragon betrays his oath as leader of the Shadowmen and accepts the death sentence he knows that will bring to right a wrong his honor can no longer tolerate. Annette will risk everything, even her very soul, to find her missing sister Stephanie, the sister she feels she's failed. As Annette and Aragon come together and find a true connection with each other mind, body and spirit, the shadow of their inevitable parting hangs over them. Knowing that neither can forsake their search no matter the cost they themselves must bear.

Although not the stars of the show, the sparks continue to fly between Sam and Emerald, and they play important roles here. Sam, the skeptic, in the last book becomes a grudging believer here. Now that he is fully on the team his covert ops skills and contacts are key to the struggle. We learn of Sam's hidden vulnerabilities, scars that he carries from his tortured past. This knowledge gives us insight into Sam's protective nature and his fight to hold himself apart from Emerald. Emerald is as fascinating and fey as ever but we find out that she is also way more than she seems and are given a glimpse of her true power here. Emerald struggles against Sam's pigheadedness and though he doesn't realise it yet he has already lost the war, she just hasn't told him yet.

St. Giles does an excellent job of moving her series along and setting up the characters and situations for her next book. Is Sam at risk from his encounter with the vampires? Has he been handed clues to a missing piece of his past? Will he stop fighting his attraction to Emerald and allow her to help him heal? And what about Stephanie and Sirius the dragon-shifter shadowman, is there a connection there? I can hardly wait for the next installment to find out.

Let's turn up the heat! 7 Aug. 2008
By L. L. Gray - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Aragon, the former leader of a band of Blood Hunters, has deserted his duty and has condemned himself to one of the worst punishments possible for a member of the Guardian Forces. He is doomed to become a faded warrior, a formless spirit trapped between life and death, for eternity. He has knowingly chosen this fate to atone for his failure as a leader, pledging to kill Pathos, the leader of the Vladarian Order. Ages ago, Pathos succumbed to a poisoned bite and turned against his fellow Guardians to become one of the strongest and most evil of Heldon's minions. Aragon intends to hunt down and destroy Pathos before he completely fades away. But he hadn't counted on Dr. Annette Batista finding his Blood Hunter medallion and using it to call him to her. Annette intends to find her sister, who has been missing for 6 months, and she needs all of the help she can get. It has become increasingly obvious that Stefanie's disappearance is in some way connected to her job at Sno-Med, a medical corporation with ties to the forces of Heldon. Jared (a former Blood Hunter), Erin Morgan, Sherriff Sam Sheridan and the mystical Em have all pledged their help. And Aragon has sworn to find Stefanie before he destroys Pathos. He is slowly losing his warrior powers, but his growing love and passion for Annette provides his weakened spirit with the strength he needs to fulfill his oath. The search for Stefanie leads them from the burnt shell of Sno-Med's research facility in Twilight to the jungles of Central America, following the trail of Pathos. Can Aragon keep his promises before completely succumbing to his fate? Can he submit to the Guardian Council's punishment now that his spirit is irrevocably melded with Annette's?

"The Lure of the Wolf" is the second offering in St. Giles' Shadowmen series. This one is better than the first. St Giles has a talent for weaving complicated plotlines and characters together to create an exciting whole. Characters from previous volumes in the series return as the plot shifts its emphasis to the viewpoints of others and her heroes get sexier with each book!! And even though there is a continuing story arch, each novel stands on its own merit, a quality I have seen in St. Giles' other books. If you are a fan of romantic fiction with a twist, this one is a must read. Fans of St. Giles' other work will not be disappointed. My only problem is that I have to wait until spring of 2009 for the next 2 books in this series!

The second Shadowmen romantic fantasy suspense thriller is an entertaining tale 12 Aug. 2007
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Aragon made some horrendous mistakes when he led the Shadowmen; errors caused because he trusted his mentor Pathos. Aragon knows he will suffer deservedly for eternity for his transgressions regardless of the cause, but he feels he must do one last deed; he must kill the malevolent Pathos.

Dr. Annette Batista suffers two traumatic shockers. First her sister vanishes without a trace and then she learns that Dr. Cinatas is providing sustenance to vampires. She plans to stop Cinatas and find her sibling. She finds and touches Aragon's tossed away amulet only to connects with the anguished shapeshifting former Shadowmen. They quickly realize that they share the same quest, but neither expected love to enter their shaky relationship nor that duty might tear them apart.

The second Shadowmen romantic fantasy suspense thriller (see TOUCH A DARK WOLF) is an entertaining tale mostly because of Aragon's obsessive quest. His debt of honor means more to him than his eternal soul; yet the love of Annette makes him reconsider what he perceives is his damning responsibility as he holds himself accountable. Although Annette is out the female heroic handbook and likewise Dr. C is from the supervillain guide, sub-genre readers will appreciate the lure of Jennifer St. Giles exciting tale.

The Shadowmen 13 Aug. 2007
By M. Nix - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dr. Annette Batista is searching for her missing sister, Stephanie, who worked for the research facility Sno-Med. She is determined to find her, but so far, has had no luck. When Annette finds a strange amulet at the site of Stephanie's disappearance, she isn't sure what to think. Then, while taking a bath at home, she rubs the amulet and a strange man appears.

Aragon is a Blood Hunter, half-man, half-werewolf. In an effort to track down a Blood Hunter who has turned evil, he forsakes his vow as leader of the group and travels to the Earthly plain to track down Pathos and kill him. When a strange woman somehow pulls him to her side, he isn't sure what to do. When it happens again, he is equally confused, but he knows there is a bond with this woman.

Annette isn't sure what to do about Aragon, but she knows that she wants him. Together, they search for her missing sister and work to find Pathos and a number of evil minions, who deserve the fate of death.

The Lure of the Wolf is a fascinating tale of good verses evil. Ms. St. Giles has created a world full of mythical creatures and entertaining humans that come to life on the page. Aragon is full of honor, and full of love for Annette. I loved the strength that Annette showed through the entire book, even in the face of danger.

The Lure of the Wolf is a wonderful continuation in the Shadowmen series and I can't wait to see which Blood Hunter will be featured next. Lovers of paranormal should run to pick up a copy of The Lure of the Wolf. This book is the second in the series, and although it's not necessary to have read the first book, Touch a Dark Wolf, it will increase a reader's enjoyment of The Lure of the Wolf, as the characters are introduced in the first book.

Can't wait for more! 1 Jun. 2009
By Tami W. - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
OK, the first book caught me, and the second book hooked me. And to be honest with you, it hurts. I want to pick up the third right now and find out which set of characters I get to delve into next. This book throws us into the lives of Dr. Batista. From the first book I really thought this chick was an ice queen. Now that we get to meet her and see what is going on in her world and get to understand her world, she has a right to be an ice queen. Again, I guess we shouldn't judge the proverbial book by its cover. Now, Aragon **sighs deeply and heads into the other room to change into something a little more comfortable** is smokin' hot. These Shadowmen just keep getting hotter! How is this even possible? Jared was hot, but Aragon has got to be my favorite so far..... OK Ms. St.Giles, what have you got in store for me now? Well written characters...check. Action...check. Steam...check. Hot men...check. Strong women...check. What more could I ask for? Let's find out in Shadowmen 3......I'll be back!
