Rachel Fortier is a much sought-after expert when it comes to exotic planets—especially the deadly kind. So when she’s hired by Earth Fleet’s most respected scientist to join a mission to the tightly closed planet Harp, it’s a dream come true. Until she discovers their mission is to capture shifters and sell them to the

Shifter Aidan Devlin is on patrol far from his clan when he sees a shuttlecraft landing where it definitely shouldn’t be. As the invaders emerge, he’s surprised to see a lone lovely woman, who doesn’t seem to belong. But when he’s captured and put in a cage, he has no one but her to help him escape.

Drawn together by a hunger they can’t resist, and desperate to discover who betrayed Harp, Aidan and Rachel first have to survive a deadly journey to the city. But once there, they find themselves confronted by a conspiracy that goes even deeper. Because Harp is harboring a traitor. And he’s willing to destroy their world—and everything in it—to get what he wants.


“I'm so happy D.B. Reynolds revisited the planet of Harp. Her ability to build a world unlike any other is fantastic without overshadowing the characters or plot. Rachel and Aidan had loads of chemistry and the give and take kept me hooked. The pacing of the story was perfect without unnecessary additional information. A must-read for lovers of paranormal romantic suspense.” -Sheila K., Goodreads

“This author always gives her readers strong, uncompromising heroines and the character Rachel we meet here is no different.” -Marta C., NetGalley

“The story was well developed, well-paced and had lots of action, drama, great secondary characters, romance and steam. Highly recommend!” -Tammy E., Goodreads

“I loved It!  Rachel is smart, capable and amazed me with her ability to cope with the terrors she faced on an alien planet. The world building was exceptional.  The "Green" was enough to create all sorts of unique situations.  The creatures alone were diverse while being nightmare material.  The justice administered to Dr. Wulfrum was as shocking as it was just.  All in all, a most enjoyable read!” -Karen M., NetGalley

“Shifter Planet: The Return is a gripping and enthralling read, with a depth of mystery and intrigue that is usually only found in thrillers.” -Karen R., Goodreads
