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.

I should have known with the fantastic prequel for this series that there was more amazing writing and story to come. Building on the excellent backstory presented in Hunter Sacrificed, Hunter Deceived tells us the story of Calan, leader of the Wild Hunt and son to Arawn, the Lord of the Underworld (and main character from Hunter Sacrificed), and Harley-a woman with a complicated lineage that includes a direct tie to the Unseelie court.
I had hoped the fantastic writing from the prequel would continue on here in Hunter Deceived, and I was not disappointed at all. Descriptive writing that pulls you deep into the story and makes you feel like you're surrounded by this amazing world, coupled with characters who you can't help but feel tied to and truly care about, combined with a storyline that contains plenty of twists and turns makes for a highly engaging read that I did NOT want to put down for even a moment.
Calan is written so you feel his pain, along with his love and euphoria with Harley. In fact, I was pulled into the emotions of all the characters in the story-even those who were merely supporting the main cast. They are all expressive and command your attention, and you'll finish this book wanting to know all of their stories (boy, I sure hope the author is planning a LOT of books in this series!).
Just when you think things will go one way, a bit of a twist will happen to add suspense and depth to the story, pulling you further and further in. Things will get crazy, the emotional highs and lows will drive you nuts, but in the end you get satisfaction--and the result opens up a whole lot of stories for the future.
If you are a paranormal romance fan, mythology-based story fan, fan of oh-my-goodness-hot-and-steamy stories bordering on the erotic...and especially all of these things wrapped up in one thrilling package, you will not want to pass this story-or series-up. Hunter Deceived was a 5-star read for me, and as of now this series has found a home on my Top Recommendations list. Strictly for those 18+ readers due to adult language and sexual content.
I need more of this series, ASAP!
