Johann Kozac is an agent with STORM.
He’s also a vampire but he hasn’tcome out to the public as
many Talents have. Right now, he and the rest of his team
are trying to meet an informant at a party, who supposedly
has information about a doctor they’re hunting for. Johann
was only supposed to be backup for this meet until the agent
who was supposed to be in the lead sees someone at the party
who knows him, now Johann has to be the lead for this meet.
Instead of finding the informant, Johann has uncovered a
very different type of operation going on at the party.
Ania Zelinski is part owner to the
company providing the wait staff for the hotel party. After
being away from the business for personal reasons, Ania
thinks she has discovered something rotten within her
business and has gone undercover with her own staff to find
the true facts. What Ania discovers is things are worse
than even she had thought. Ania’s cover is broken after an
incident brings her to the attention of a dark haired man
who had already attracted her attention.
The original meeting between Ania and
Johann turns steamy in a hurry, only to go stone cold as
Ania learns about Johann and is guided by her own
impressions. Besides, she has enough to worry about right
now without adding a social life to things. Johann wants to
track Ania down and find out what happened, but due to his
obligations to STORM, he leaves it alone for a few days.
Ania and Johann come back together with just as much passion
as explainations clear away all misunderstandings. A happy
ending might not be on the horizon because there is danger
that threatens both of them. Johann believes it’s because
of his job until actions show otherwise. For Ania and
Johann to get their happy ever after, a certain doctor is
going to have to go down – no matter what it takes.
What happens when a vampire falls for a
woman who believes only the worse about them? In Red
Shadow Johann needs to find out what gave Ania such
a bad impression of his species. Ania thinks very little of
vampires based on what she knows of them. Sparks of all
types appear immediately when Ania and Johann meet. I loved
watching as they worked to discover not only what was
between them, but to correct misunderstandings and get rid
of the danger that threatened any type of future. The
ending was perfect with Ania and a very protective Johann,
one I wouldn’t have guessed how it would happen. Once
again, Ms. Connolly has delivered a wonderful Talent love
story. Red Shadow combines eroticism with
danger, and then sprinkles on the love and humor to make
this a paranormal keeper.
