Reckoning by Shelby Gunter The Shadow Series: Book 1Vigilantes. Black widows. Femmes fatales. We’ve gone by many names, but our goal has remained the same: exact justice for those whom the system has failed. Myself included. Except I’m not looking for justice. I’ve sacrificed many things to find the men who murdered the love of my life. Friendships, careers, relationships… all left behind in the name of revenge. That is, until I’m given a second chance at love, and I have to make a choice: Share my secrets with the former Navy SEAL who understands me better than anyone, or continue on my path alone. The thing about my SEAL is, he won’t let me go it alone. And the closer I get to my day of reckoning, the more I’ll need his help to make it out alive.
Relentless by Shelby Gunter The Shadow Series: Book 2Programmer. Coder. Hacker. I uncover secrets no one wants me to find. Celebrities, international fugitives, even my neighbors. No one is off limits. All I need is a name and a location, and the dirty things they try to hide will suddenly come to light. My biggest fault? Believing I don’t need help, despite all the evidence to the contrary. And the one person capable of aiding me turns my body to Jell-O. I don’t want to rely on Isaac Hayes to help me solve this puzzle. But the pieces don’t fit together, and we’re running out of time. If I can’t set my pride aside and allow Isaac to help me, the ghosts of my past will take more from me than just my life.

Excerpt from Reckoning (The Shadow Series, Book 1) Copyright 2022 Shelby GunterThis was such a bad idea. I shouldn’t have impulsively booked a flight after my talk with R.J. I shouldn’t have told Bittie what I was doing or listened when she emphatically encouraged me to fly to New York. I shouldn’t have gotten her address from the file Isaac sent me when I landed. Let’s just label all the decisions I’ve made in the last twenty-four hours as things I shouldn’t have done. Fuck, I have to go inside. I can’t continue standing outside her building like a creeper, and I also can’t stomach the idea of getting back on a plane without seeing her. Taking a fortifying breath, I walk inside her apartment and start for the elevators. “Excuse me, sir. Can I help you?” I snap my head up, surprised someone is talking to me. “Oh, uh… I’m here to see a friend.” I point at the elevator like an idiot. Obviously, this guy knows how I’m going to get up to Hailey’s apartment. “I’m sorry, sir. Guests aren’t allowed to go up unless they’re with the resident or on an approved list. What’s your name?” Shit. Well, maybe this is a good thing. If she doesn’t want to see me, I won’t have to hear it directly from her or worry about looking stoic while she smashes my heart into a million pieces. God, I’m pathetic. “Dax Pierce. I’m probably not on Hailey’s list, so maybe just call her? She’s not expecting me.” He nods his head and picks up his phone. I tap my fingers against my thigh and adjust my duffle bag over my shoulder. What if she’s not even home? She could be out on a date with some other schmuck who’s falling just as hard for her as I did. No, she’s been texting me constantly since she left. That would be shitty if she went on a date with another guy while she’s been flirting with me. I don’t believe Hailey would do something like that. “Good evening, Miss Adler. I have a Dax Pierce here, who is asking to come up.” He listens for a second before saying, “Okay, I’ll send him up.” Elation has my chest puffing out, and I head directly to the elevator without waiting on the desk guy. I push the up button, but nothing happens, and it’s then I realize I need a key card to work the elevator. Now everything makes sense. The desk guy comes striding up to me, holding a grey key fob that he taps against the pad above the elevator button. The doors open with a ding, and I step in. “Thanks,” I say before I press the number for Hailey’s floor. The desk guy doesn’t respond as he turns around to walk back to his desk. I don’t even care. My excitement is almost palpable at this point. When the elevator opens on her floor, I turn left down the hallway, then take the corner until I see Hailey standing outside her apartment. She looks gorgeous in her gym shorts and cutoff shirt, and the little smirk on her face does something to me. My eyes trace down her legs until they stop on a huge bruise on her thigh that makes me frown. How the hell did that happen?
