Fletcher Lane wants to protect people. It was why he became a deputy. A month ago, it was why he killed a vampire who kidnapped one of his friends. Now, that death has started a cascade effect that’s tearing his life apart, leaving him possessed by magic that whispers to him in ancient Gothic.
While he’s already fighting for control of his own mind, he has to hold it together when strangers come into town looking for the dead vampire. They say they’re bounty hunters, but Fletcher knows that’s a lie. They’re the same kind of murderers who killed Fletcher’s mother. When one of them puts up a kind front, Fletcher knows that people who hunt the supernatural can’t be trusted. However nice Conner Mason seems, the worst thing Fletcher could do is fall for his act.
I am addicted to this series!
So, yeah, I mistakenly read book 4 first. Oops. No matter, now I know how Fletcher and Conner actually met and fell for each other. PSA time kids: don’t read these out of order.
I love the fantasy elements and world building, and how each installment has another piece of the puzzle. I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
Single POV fantasy with low heat, recurring characters, and a HFN cliffhanger ending. This is not a standalone.
Note: The Rowan Harbor Cycle is a series of 9 books – a trilogy of trilogies. The main characters (Devon and Wade, Jesse and Sean, Fletcher and Conner) will have their own book in each trilogy with happy for now endings until the final trilogy where they will finally (hopefully) get their happily ever afters.
