He was born to kill her…but he’ll risk all to save her
Wild Hunt, Book 1
Every day, Harley fights the urge to embrace the dark heritage that could turn her Unseelie. Evil. Bad. A nightmarish monster like the ones that wiped out her family. The only thing keeping her on this side of Seelie is a promise made to the ghostly man who saved her that terrible night.
Whenever she’s tempted, she calls up a vision of his eyes. Hears his voice calling her back from the brink of madness. Years later, when she returns to the scene of her living hell, he’s her only hope for salvation.
Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, was created to protect mankind from the Unseelie Court, not love one of them. He never expected the rightness he felt with her all those years ago would explode into desire.
But saving her from a fate she can’t escape could damn them both…and leave the world open for destruction.
Warning: Contains a half-fae woman who could really use a Seelie version of AA to stay clean and monster-free. And a rider of the Wild Hunt who’ll take any risk to keep her safe from her enemies. Including himself.
Note: This book was previously published. It has been expanded and re-edited.
Harley Callahan wants to experience freedom. She will soon learn what it cost her. Calan really needs to see her. And when they finally do come into contact with each other the heat level will go through the roof. These two have personal demons but whose is worse and will Harley realize that they need each other in order to defeat them.
This author shows the fine line between good and evil. It’s not as easy a fight as you would think. If you search the Internet, you will see that this story may have been based on some Celtic mythology. You may even find yourself wanting to know more. We see that there’s a fine line between our two worlds and there are those that protect us mere humans from the unseen. And it’s a great incentive to keep reading the series.
You would think that once they find each other everything would fall into place. That is so not true. There are other forces here and everything will happen when the time is right. And that is also true in saying those three little words – the author has some interesting ways of putting that off. If you like action in your stories then you’ll be happy to know that you will get plenty here. What are you willing to fight for? The ending is not a finish but a beginning – it’s the set up for the beginning of Hunter Forsaken coming out in February.
Hunter Sacrificed, book 0.5…a free read
Arawn is a very lonely man due to the job he has. It’s a little confusing who’s fighting for good and who’s bad but as the series unfolds this will come to light. Arawn seems to be an honorable man – he’s willing to make a personal sacrifice to try and make things right. It comes with a price – nothing is free.
This is the perfect short read to start off the Wild Hunt Series. This story shows the beginning of the mythology that swirls through this series. If you love paranormals that deal with gods, demigods, and fairies; you may want to check out the world that this author has created. The author could have added this story at the beginning of her first book but it would have made the book too long and might have confused the reader. By giving Arawn his own novella, the reader has an understanding how the whole series came to be. And what a great beginning.
