She’s the one woman he can’t have.
Past experience has taught FBI Special Agent Clay Bauer not to trust his judgment when it comes to the opposite sex, yet despite his jaded outlook there’s one woman he can’t get out of his head—and she’s off limits. They’re opposites in every way but Zoe’s gotten deep under his skin and when she’s drawn into a dangerous situation against a faceless enemy he steps in to help protect her. Then she disappears without a trace and the loss leaves him reeling. Now he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back alive.
By the time he realizes what she means to him it could be too late.
Former family lawyer Zoe Renard has been through her own heartbreak but she can’t ignore the magnetic pull between her and Clay. When he comes to New Orleans for a conference, it’s the perfect opportunity for her to see if there might be something real between them. Just as desire ignites into something more powerful than either of them imagined, she’s targeted by a madman bent on revenge. With her life on the line, it’s a race for Clay and his teammates to find her and save her from certain death.
Heartrendingly beautiful love story with breathtaking action and suspense.
Clay and Zoe are absolutely marvelous together! Clay is so broken from past experience that has turned him into a cynic when it comes to love, such a big alpha warrior, but so vulnerable. Zoe is strong and independent, holds nothing back, Goth girl to the last detail. Together they are so accepting of each other, loving, and tender. The friendship they have built over the months as the foundation to the developing feelings.
The action is on the edge, explosive, with the constant unknown threat.
The author pulled me into the story so that I could really feel the raw emotions the characters felt. The agony, sorrow, pain, fear... I was in tears, it was so coarse, natural, fresh.
Kaylea Cross is one of the very few authors on my auto-buy list, I absolutely love her work. Hunted doesn't disappoint either, I highly recommend this (or any) of her series! ~ Five spoons!!
