A SHADOW IN THE WINDOW
Nia Hollister doesn't scare easily. She's returned to Ash, Kentucky, with a vengeance--and with a mission: find the killer who brutally ended her cousin's life. What she didn't count on was trembling with desire every time she sees Law Reilly. If any man can help her escape the nightmares for a while, it's him. But can she allow herself to take comfort in those strong arms when her sister's killer still roams free?
She may think she's a bad ass, but she should not have come back to "his "town. He is watching her--as she slips into Law Reilly's house, as she storms into the sheriff's office. These men won't be able to protect her when her time comes. Timing is everything, though he can't wait forever. She's nosing around the woods, looking for his hiding place. Yes, he is watching her . . . through the window . . . in her bed . . .
If she's not scared, she should be . . . because he is very good at what he does.

SPOILERS AHEAD...do not read further if you havent read this book.
At the half way point in the book Law,Ezra and Nia have used some old maps to find long forgotten basements of houses that were torn down years ago. They find the last one and Law goes down with a camera phone and a flash light. He finds the killer's torture cell. It is of course awful and bloody, we know from previous books that there are shackles. He finds a bloody saw that the killer has been using to cut up the women. Law takes pictures.He tells Nia he wishes he hadn't seen the place because now it's in his head forever. They go to her cabin and it's been destroyed,ripped to shreds.Then they go to Law's house and he tells her she does not want to see these photos. He deletes the photos after emailing them to Remy. Okay, Law leaves his cell phone on the counter and takes a shower. Of course Nia HAS to see the photos so she opens the email and looks.IT SO BAD SHE IS ALMOST CATATONIC when Law finds her so............they discuss how to get these awful images out of their heads. It's so bad neither can sleep or close their eyes without seeing the images.
NOW comes the reason I gave the book a 1 star. Her niece was held in that basement, beaten, brutalized, raped, sodomized, tortured and choked to death.
(Nia and Law know this from the autopsy) and to sooth the awful images they have wild crazy sex,they even have a few words exchanged about submissivness and bondage and he would like to see her in black leather... WTF ??????????
I read alot of erotica and have no hang ups about sex but this was by far the most unlikely and badly placed moment in the history of books for an author to slip a little sex in. What person in the world would see what they seen and go straight to "Oh I'm so hot for you baby, I want to see you in black leather !!" instead of finding the nearest place to loose their lunch, unless they were as messed up as the killer in this book.
This one scene screwed up the whole book to the point that I have to rank it 1 star.!!
Kel and Angel were inseparable. From the first moment that Angel met Kel, she vowed then and there, at eight years old, that she was going to marry him. Of course, that is not something that a boy wants to hear, but as they grew older and became first friends and then lovers, Kel and Angel's feelings for each other never dimmed. When Kel is killed protecting Angel from an evil her mind can't fathom, Angel feels as if her life is over. She battles depression and dark dreams. She feels as if she is going crazy. But through it all, she still loves Kel with every beat of her heart. While she thinks she is losing her mind, she can feel his presence and wishes he was with her.
Twelve years ago, Kel became one of the undead. Protecting his Angel against a vile and viscous attack, he was turned into the very thing he was fighting. Unable to get past the fact that he is now a vampire, Kel fights his destiny daily. One of the hunters now, he spends his time hunting down and eradicating rogue vampires. When Angel is threatened once more by the rogue that attacked them years ago, Kel has no choice but to protect Angel. He knows that he can't have her any longer, but he is unable to leave her alone and at the mercy of the evil that is stalking her.
HUNTER'S EDGE is a dark and stormy read. Not a typical romance, everything is not candy and roses for the hero and heroine. Their lives ended almost twelve years ago and since then, neither has been able to forget the other. Angel's memories are plagued with nightmares and yearnings she can't explain. Depression is predominant and Kel experiences pretty much the same. He loves his Angel but refuses to expose her to the darkness that has become his life. I found myself teary eyed more than once, but I can promise that while HUNTER'S EDGE is suspenseful and edgy, it also has a happy ever after. Shiloh Walker makes sure of that! HUNTER'S EDGE is available from Samhain Publishing.
Angelica (Angel) Pierson knew who Kel would be to her from the moment she laid eyes on him. Angel never doubted that Kel would be there for her and he always was, even one horrible night when she was attacked. But when Angel woke up in the hospital, it was to learn Kel was gone. Picking up the pieces of her life and going on only half-worked for Angel.
Kel was changed that night and now twelve years later, he is still trying to get over not being able to be with Angel. He knows that the others are unsure what to make of him even though he is on their team. One night Kel learns that Angel is in danger and nothing, not even his boss, is going to keep Kel from protecting Angel. Angel has been just going day-to-day and missing Kel every one. When danger once again targets Angel and she learns about Kel, will their lives be able to begin again? Or will time, distance, and pride keep them apart forever?
When fate has decided one thing, and what happens when it is interrupted, is what I discovered Hunter's Edge was all about. Angel just knows things sometimes and she knew that Kel was to be with her. Kel never expected to meet the girl he would love when he was seven, much less have her say so. My heart went out to both Angel and Kel, as the events that kept them apart seemed to be ongoing. Then when Kel fought like crazy to get to Angel and then she fought for him, once again I felt the sting of tears. All through Hunter's Edge, I kept thinking that you just shouldn't mess with what fate and love have decided is going to be. Kel and Angel showed not only that their love was strong, but also when you are lucky enough to find it with your soul mate, nothing can keep you apart.
I have loved and followed all of Ms. Walker's Hunters and from that respect, I have to say that Hunter's Edge is a must read. But if you have never picked up one of the Hunters books, then no worries, you can begin with Hunter's Edge and learn how the Hunters will grab you up and keep you in their grip.

If you remember from the previous book, Nia Hollister came back to town to expedite the investigation into her cousin Jolene's murder. She was definitely a strong woman, who didn't take crap from anyone. She carried her own gun, and she made sure people knew she wasn't going to be anyone's victim. She made her appearance in book 2 where she pulled a gun on Edward Lawson Reilly ("Law") and his friend Hope. Hope had been a suspect in the murder but was later cleared. But Law felt a connection to Nia and chose to protect her during that incident. From then on, Law and Nia felt a pull towards each other.
The one thing with Nia is that she is head strong. She uncovers evidence that the person from Book 2 is NOT the murder. So Nia begins gathering evidence to support her believe that her cousin's killer is still out there. She wants to make sure her cousin/best friends killer was brought to justice, but now Nia has stirred up the hornet's nest. The killer starts with subtle threats but now started losing control as Nia was getting others to buy into her suspicion. Nia, Law and the rest of their crew have to quick uncover the killer's identity before one of them become a casualty. Nothing like fear, grief and adrenaline to build up sexual tension and Nia and Law definitely gave in. Their relationship was too fast, but I guess they work. I wish the author built it up slowly like she did Remy and Hope's relationship.
In the end, I am happy Nia and Law finally came to terms with what they were feeling. The two of them deserve some happiness as they had the most intense relationship out of the other couples.
This story was a little frightening because that ticking time bomb nutjob was normal in some instances and crazy in the next minute. I think I should keep an eye on my neighbors for similar traits (just kidding, well maybe not). The ending was really satisfying. If you love suspense and romance, this trilogy is a must read for you.

The only negative with her quest in her mind is in Ash is Law Reilly who she obsesses over as much as finding who killed Joely. Law reciprocates her attraction and goes up in her mind when he does not scorn her theory but actually supports her assertion. As Nia scrutinizes the police report and other related public documents, Law fears for her safety from an unknown enemy watching her. He will soon learn that sometime paranoia is justified when her room is haphazardly searched.
The final Ash romantic suspense is a great finish to a strong series. The overarching whodunit is brilliantly resolved while the romantic subplot takes a back seat to the increasingly dangerous investigation. Although it behooves the audience to read the previous novels in order (see If You See Her and If You Hear Her) as they build up and directly lead to this suspenseful climax, Shiloh Walker completes the fabulous Ash saga with another super entry.
