Book cover of Dark Alpha's Command by Donna Grant“I’ve killed, Rhona.” He wished he knew why he laid himself bare to her. The words were the most difficult things he had ever said. Yet she looked at him with utter trust. The kind he’d never thought to experience again. He shouldn’t be telling her any of this, but he needed her to realize who he was. All of him.

Even the parts he wished he could bury and pretend didn’t exist.

She shrugged as if it meant little. “You killed when you were in the Light Army.”

“That was different.”

“Was it? I’ve killed.”

He snorted. “I highly doubt you did it outside of battle.”

“Killing is killing. I still see the faces of those I’ve ended.”

Balladyn stared across the way into her green eyes. He fought the urge, the primal instinct to go to her, to pull her to her feet and kiss her. How did she have the ability to effortlessly purge the shame and remorse he’d carried for what felt like an eternity?

She shoved her thick locks out of her face. “I sincerely doubt Death would have chosen you for a Reaper if she didn’t see the good in you. Perhaps being a Reaper was your destiny all along. The only way to get there was to experience what you’ve gone through. Look where you are now.”

“Aye,” he murmured. But his thoughts weren’t on his journey. No, he was thinking about Rhona. How he had been called to her. Maybe she was right. Perhaps everything that had happened had been meant to bring him to her. He’d saved her life, but he couldn’t leave.

Because he knew that something else would be coming for her.

His skin prickled with awareness, of the feelings that were growing inside him. Things that he had no right to feel—much less act upon.

What he could do was protect her. The fact that Erith had chosen him as a Reaper spoke to his ability as a warrior. It was the one thing he excelled at. No one would harm Rhona. Balladyn would make sure of that at all costs.

About the Book:

From New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant comes another action-packed installment in her thrilling Reaper series, featuring a brotherhood of elite assassins who wage war on the Fae at Death’s behest—and the women who dare to love them.

There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…

I’ve been a part of so many different worlds I’m not sure who I am or where I fit in anymore. Honestly, with everything I’ve been through, being called across realms and encountering the beautiful Druid who instantly captures my attention—and my heart—shouldn’t have surprised me. But it did. Not as much as discovering how it feels to brush against her magic, however. Now, we must navigate these new waters and fight against our latest threat, hoping that our combined power and that of our allies is enough to defeat our foe. Because the Fae Others want to end the Reapers and take over the realm, and their leader is one of the most formidable enemies we’ve ever faced. The battle won’t be easy, but with this strong, resilient mortal by my side and some help from our friends, it’s a fight I’m more than willing to enter—as long as it means she’s by my side. Forever.
