New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian

Now she uses her legal background as inspiration for her paranormal romantic suspense series the Shadow Keepers, set in and around a secret judicial system hidden within and mirroring our own.

Customer Reviews

Having now read the first two books in the Shadow Keepers series, I can't wait to open up the third.
M. Nix
He wants to blame the attraction towards Lissa on what she is but he can't help like that she stands up for herself and takes crap from no one.
Stephanie G (Reviewer for Paranormal Haven)
I feel that if the characters had been more likable, and I could really feel them that I would have been able to get into When Pleasure Rules .

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The on going feud between werewolves and vampires continues and is getting deadlier each day. The Shadow Alliance, secret organization that governs the paranormal, wants answers now. Werewolf Vincent Rand is back in Los Angeles to find out who is framing his boss Gunnolf for the murder of 7 humans with more bodies piling up. Lissa Monroe is to use her succubus powers and ability to look into her lover's minds to find out more about Rand for the Alliance or will be forced to give up every thing she has worked for and will be sent to prison. What she thought would be an easy task proves to be difficult when they start to fall for each other and will risk anything, including their missions, to save the other.

Vincent Rand grew up on the hard streets of LA and killed his first person before he was even a teenager. He has always had an inner wolf lurking at his surface and finally let it loose after being bitten while over seas. Rand first became a soldier as a human and continue to be one for the werewolf leader Gunnolf once he was turned. He left LA for Paris to get away from his past but is forced to go back after years of being away to see who has been spreading lies about his leader that may cost him his territory. When he arrives he visits Orlando, a club where the women are succubi, and meets its beautiful and take no crap owner Lissa Monroe. He feels desire for her right away but writes it off as the attraction all men feel towards a succubus. Lissa is not sure of what to think of Rand at first. He seems unaffected by her succubus appeal and it both confuses and intrigues her.

This book only took me 2 1/2 days to read! Absolutely loved it!
Vincent Rand is a Weren, he is sent by Gunnolf , the liaison Weren for the Alliance to find who is spreading lies about werewolves killing humans, and if necessary take care of the problem. He must also find out who is responsible for the deaths and make the guilty pay...if at all possible.Lissa owns Orlando's ,a club that trades souls. She meets Rand and they are immediately attracted to each other. The trouble that comes to them, they must fight together. The love they feel for each other helps to heal Rand's soul.The friendships that emerge in this story are wonderful, sadly some may not be as lucky. Betrayal, murder, heart and soul healing. A wonderful book and a story that makes you want more...NOW! I highly suggest this book and can't wait for the 3rd...When Wicked Craves.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
First off, I am an avid reader of many series and am always anxious to start a new series. I read the first book and while I wasn't overly thrilled, I thought the series had potential. I started the second book and I can't even bring myself to continue reading it. I agree with the previous review - I don't even like the starring characters. That makes it very hard to continue. I kept waiting for something that was going to make me like them and there was nothing !!!! It's been a couple of days (and usually if a story is great I can't wait to get back to it) and I haven't picked up the book.

This book is part of a series, but I definately enjoyed the previous ones more than this one. I liked the character well enough, just thought it maybe should have gone in a different direction.

By M. Nix on December 7, 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lissa Monroe is a strong willed succubus who has used her brain and gifts to not only free herself but also became the owner of a very successful business that has allowed her to free other succubus' who now work for her. Lissa, like other succubus, is not immortal but she is reborn time and time again. Usually, they have no real memories of their past lives, but once in a while something comes back to haunt them. Lissa has had this happen and as a result has agreed to become an undercover agent for the Shadow Alliance.

Vincent Rand was career military before he was transformed into a werewolf. Now he is an enforcer to a member of the Alliance Council. Normally Rand is based out of Paris but he has just been ordered to find out who is dragging his boss's name into the middle of seven nasty murders in Los Angeles. Rand grew up in the outskirts of Los Angeles and that past is his own personal shadow.

Lissa is amazed when she finds out that her mission is to get into the head of the werewolf she met the other night - Rand, a man that calls to something in her outside of the succubus. Rand firmly believes he has no room for any form of romance in his life but his beginning lust for Lissa is turning into a consuming passion. As he works to find out where the boundary lines are drawn in the Alliance, Rand is also finding that his need for Lissa is growing. The danger is thick around them when betrayals all but destroy the growing trust between Lissa and Rand. True trust is going to be needed for Lissa and Rand to not only find their future but also to demolish the real masterminds behind the killings.

When you team one wolf with a bad attitude and one determined and savvy succubus you get blistering passion.
