Laci Albright’s world has ground to a screeching halt. She’s no longer a field agent for the Exchange—the super-secret agency for handling non-human criminals. Laci lost her partner Taylor Reynaud and now is simply existing, her life empty until the day they tell her he is still alive.

For three horrific years Reynaud—a Reaper panther shifter—has been the prisoner of Shiek Hassan, the world’s most sadistic terrorist. Horribly disfigured and unable to heal himself, Taylor is already dead in his own mind when the SEAL unit rescues him.
Ex-Navy SEAL Dixon Coulter grew up with psychic powers. When he is captured by Hassan he becomes something far more than Reaper. He is the world’s first Gravelord—a being so powerful that not even a Reaper can defeat him.

Now Coulter wants the woman who belongs to Taylor and he will do anything to win her.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave


A Reaper’s Love by author Charlotte Boyett-Compo is the 8th book in her Windword Series.  I will admit this is the first time I have read the series.  I took notes to keep myself on track. I think this series is best enjoyed in order. There is a lot of story, and I mean a lot of story, and I am sure it builds up to the book  I read.  There is some amazing world building, politics, and interpersonal interactions in this book.  I think this is a series to really sink into and immerse yourself in.
Laci when we meet her she appears to be lost. She is suffering from astraphobia and a supervisor that most of us would hate. She has had the loss of her love and her Reaper   Taylor now for about three years.  She is whisked away no one tells her where and then suddenly she is with Taylor.  Who is very much alive but been tortured for the past three years.
I like Laci she is strong, sweet, loyal.  She is what Taylor needs to become well again. She has so much love to give him and he desperately needs that love to overcome the horrors of his past.
Taylor Fallon, he has not had a great time so far in this book. Tortured so badly they were burning the skin right off his body. He was the Alpha before this happened. Now he has to rebuild in his mind who he is and where he fits into this new world.
He is so strong, stronger than even he knows. I loved that he is human, he has faults, yes but love can heal most wounds if he just lets it. He really leans on Laci too, I like that. He was not afraid to be vulnerable. I think it made the couple stronger. Showed they both need each other equally.
That is the main love story in this book, but there is so much more.  I really suggest reading this series in order, and doing it when you can really have the time to get lost inside a new and fantastical world.  I really highly recommend this series, even though I was a tad lost I see so much potential and great writing it makes me want more.
