Character Profile Ryder- Shadow Play

His name is Ryder; he is one of only eight remaining Trackers living. But who is he?

Ryder is a fighter and the best damn Tracker on the planet. There isn’t a track he can’t take and win. He thrives on the hunt and capture. But you won’t want to run into him in a back alley because he is just as likely to walk away from you as he is to kick your ass. However, once you get past his defenses (if he lets you) you have a friend in good and bad. He never walks away from a friend. And if your lucky enough to count yourself in his inner circle then in Ryder’s eyes you are family. And he will kill for his family, making him one of the most dangerous people on the planet.

Book Description:

A small town in the mountains of Marshall, Montana is being plagued by an unknown entity. It’s mutilating and killing the women of the town. At his wits end the Sheriff of Marshall has nowhere to turn but to a friend. A friend, with the abilities to track and kill any prey.

Ryder doesn’t normally do mortal issues. However, he can’t turn his back on a friend. Besides he is the best at what he does. After all he is a Tracker, an ancient race with unparalleled abilities to track down any prey. With one of the three essential elements: Taste, Touch or Smell. Heartless and cold, Ryder knows what needs to be done and performs his duty without feeling.

Kyra, an Air Element and the only female Elemental Enforcer, is sent on a fact finding mission to Marshall, by the Druid Council. She needs to find out exactly what is happening in Montana before the Tribunal goes in and kills everyone.

The last thing she expects to find is a Tracker, and is even more surprised to find out that he is on her side. But can they get past their initial feelings upon meeting and the sexual tension? Or will the evil that is living in the mountain kill them both.

Ryder and Kyra must learn to work together to destroy the shadow and save Kyra from a fate worse than death. When pure evil is involved is love enough?
