Dark (Stronghold #1) received 4 stars at Manic Readers!
I found myself just as fascinated by Greyson as Eva was. He was strong but silent, grouchy but sensitive, not to mention smokin’ hot.
I thought Ms. Leaf gave us a wonderful new series. I thought the book was well written complete with a feisty female lead. I enjoyed her interaction with Greyson and found myself rooting for her success. I am so looking forward to seeing what Ms. Leaf has in store for Greyson’s brothers.

Greyson Dark doesn’t like strangers in his territory.
Eva Waverley doesn’t like being told to keep out.
After her father’s suicide, hiking is the only thing that makes the bullying in Eva’s new school bearable. When Greyson rescues her from a tumble, she falls for him despite his autocratic demeanor. She’s leaving for college soon—what does it matter if she crushes on a man everyone else fears?
Greyson suspects Eva is his true mate, but duty demands he remain aloof. She doesn’t know he’s a long-lived Sentry, sworn to protect Earth from the Spiders, an ancient alien menace. When she leaves for college, he’s relieved, but four years later she comes back, all grown up and more gorgeous than ever.
Greyson can’t afford to care for a mortal woman, no matter how compelling. Hackers are attacking Stronghold, the Sentries’ net, and Spiders are swarming beyond the moon, but when Eva is attacked, he discovers he can’t just let her die…
Be Warned: anal sex.
