Description from the publisher:

Haunted by memories of her past, Amethyst Lakes left her home to come to Edenton. She was ready to start a new life on her own after being stalked relentlessly.

Hayden Hunter is too busy being Sheriff to take interest in a woman. That is until his officer drags Amethyst into his life. For the first time, he wants to protect and claim.

There’s instant attraction between the two, but Amethyst isn’t ready for anyone since she found out her ex killed himself after she sent him away for good.

Preston has always protected Amethyst, and when he finds out something of legend and nightmares is coming for her, he’ll do everything he can to keep her safe.

Amethyst is either the catalyst to bring nightmares fully into this realm, or the one to end them. Can she find the power to stop the darkness, or will she wind up its prey?

Pretty little nymph, suspicious but sexy earth fae, cocky mage, and a nightmare of old.

This is the fourth book in this series (two are novellas which screws with the numbering system).  It would be best if you read them in order.

Amethyst is the new piercer at Inktastic in Edenton. She is a water nymph who heals with love and lust. Haydon is an earth fae. He recognizes the magical attraction between them at first sight, but Amethyst has been frightened by a stalker ex. Our group of Others in Edenton are all under attack from a Shadow Fae who is encouraging and feeding off of the negative emotions of the citizens. This shadow fae has his eyes set on Amethyst to bring him to corporeal form in the Earth plane. Can Haydon protect Amethyst without frightening her?

When I read SHADOWS FALL, I said, “Haydon isn't going to know what hit him!” Wow, was I right. Once again Ms. Rivers has taken us on a journey into Edenton and what a fantastic journey it is! I love this story of learning to trust your mate, even when you don’t understand the journey they are taking beside you.

I continue to freaking love this series! Ms. Rivers knows I will continue to stalk her on Facebook (don’t worry, that’s a good thing). I look forward to Liz, Tremaine, and Preston’s story in the next book.

Grammar/editing:  A – near perfect
