Evening Shadows by Sheila Kell is the first book in the Agents of HIS series. It is also a spinoff of the author’s hit series HIS. The books can be read independently of each other; therefore, readers can jump into Evening Shadows with no need to read the first series.

Being familiar with the author’s work, I expected to be taken on a journey filled with suspense, action, and romance. She did not disappoint. From the moment the story began, I was hooked and had a hard time putting it down. I was eager to know how the events would unfold.

Evening Shadows had all the makings of a good story. Wonderful characters, a fast-paced storyline, great banter, intrigue, and a hot and steamy romance.

In this story, I encountered danger, betrayal, deception, and secrets while trekking through the Mexican jungle. Danger lurked in every corner. Several times, the author had me holding my breath, only to have me breathing a sigh of relief at the last minute.

I enjoyed the time I spent with the characters. I thought Ken and Sam were perfect together. They are both agents of HIS and Ken is Sam’s team leader. Ken has been in love with Sam long before she joined HIS, but because of his dedication to his job and the dangers that come with it he kept his distance. Now fate has granted him a second chance to be with the one woman who held the key to his heart.

Sam is resilient, brave, loyal, and one hell of a sniper. Ken is protective, caring, and a great team leader. I started out disliking him, as he appeared chauvinistic based on his belief that Sam should not be working in the field. However, as the story progressed, I realised his actions stemmed from his fear for her safety and not because he thought, she was incapable being an HIS agent.

They would find themselves in a situation where Sam would become the protector and Ken would find himself relying on her to help him get to safety. Tensions and uncertainties ran high and I feared for them at every turn.

Some of the secondary characters provided great support for the Sam and Ken, but there those who were a thorn in their sides.
Combined they all made for some interesting moments.

Conclusion/Recommendation
To conclude, Evening Shadows was an enjoyable read and one I would recommend to fans of romantic suspense. Looking forward to the next book in the series.









When deception leads to vengeance, it’s only your heart you can trust.

From Romantic Suspense BEST-SELLING and AWARD-WINNING Author • When his life depends on the woman who holds secrets, can he trust their love will be enough for her to seek the truth? In Sheila Kell’s thrilling novel of deception and second chances, two operatives embark on a dangerous journey that will test them as agents, friends, and lovers.

Time and distance hasn’t impacted Ken “Boss” Patrick’s love for Samantha “Sugar” Milton. When faced with the chance to move them from friends to lovers, forces out of his control make the stakes impossibly high. His mission to win her heart becomes a frantic task to save both of their lives.

To survive a new injury and being captured by their target, Ken must rely on the woman he loves but no longer trusts. With Sugar’s difficulty to separate truth from deception, Ken’s only chance is to convince the agent who holds his heart that the forces working against them are the true enemy.

EVENING SHADOWS is the first book in the Agents of H I S romantic suspense series. Agents of H I S is a spin-off series of the original award-winning H I S series. Just like in the H I S series, each Agents of H I S novel is a standalone novel.



Sheila Kell writes about the romantic men who leave women’s hearts pounding with a happily ever after built on memorable, adrenaline-pumping stories. Or, (since her editor tries to cut down on her long-windedness) simply “Smokin’ Hot Romance & Intrigue.” Her debut novel, His Desire (HIS Series #1), launched as an Amazon #1 romantic suspense bestseller and Top 100 overall, later winning the Readers’ Favorite award for best romantic suspense novel.
