Alone in the middle of the desert after being forced to put down his beloved horse, waiting for a stage that was late, Reaper™ Glyn Kullen is hot and tired and having one of the worst days of his life. Miserable, lonely, he is not in the best of moods when he climbs into the stagecoach to find a young woman and her daughter staring back at him.
Mystery Butler has no fear of the infamous Reaper™. His dark good looks and amber eyes hit her hard for she can see the pain in those mesmerizing orbs and it mirrors her own. When her six-year old daughter strikes up a conversation with the lawman, she sees a sad, fleeting smile on the shapeshifter's face that melts her heart.
Widowed, Mystery is on her way to the plantation that is home to her brood of siblings. She never expects the Reaper™ to follow her but when she opens her door to find him standing there, she knows her life has changed forever.
While five of his fellow Reapers™ are in the Western Territories battling a new threat from the Ceannus, Glyn is attacked by three different forces of pure evil intent on stealing his immortal soul and turning him into a mindless slave of black magic. Can the love of a good woman save the Reaper™ from being destroyed or will he be plunged into the Abyss?

One thing I really enjoy about this Reapers Series is how each back story of the Reaper is so in-depth. I love getting to know the hero so well. In some books, we don't often get that, but never in Ms. Boyett-Compo's.
In MY REAPER'S DAUGHTER, once again we come face to face with this breed: a Reaper. A man/shifter hybrid with a parasite inside him that keeps him alive and invulnerable. It's an odd notion to be sure, not exactly sexy lol, but it's different and its quirky-uniqueness is something I appreciate.
Glyn is a good hero, strong and stoic, a good man with a kind heart. When heroine Mystery comes on to the scene with her little girl, the depth of goodness in his nature shines purely. But that doesn't mean he's perfect; one thing the author does really well is create realistic characters who still believe in hope and love regardless of their circumstances.
The twists and turns in this tale were enough to keep me awake all night, enough to make me read it in one session! And it's a big book.
A chance meeting on a stagecoach between hero and heroine, then the introduction of an evil entity who once we figure out who it is, actually isn't who we thought it was after all...!
Yes, this is a truly enjoyable read.
My only issue is that while this is a standalone, it doesn't feel like that. I've missed books in the series and I do feel that it matters. So, read the series. Not that that's a hardship, mind!! But truly, these books are easier to appreciate when read in order. :)
