The Hunter by Kerrigan Byrne

REVIEW

This story made me so angry! …

Angry, that I didn’t have a time machine at my disposal so that I could jump straight to August when the next one comes out. Yes! It is that good!

Kerrigan Byrne reshapes the role of the dark, “anti-hero” hero once again with THE HUNTER. Her second book in the Victorian Rebels series.

Christopher Argent, is known as the coldest, deadliest and most efficient assassin to ever emerge from the dark underbelly of London with good reason. After a childhood that will give any mother nightmares, Argent’s thirst for blood seems to be all consuming…until he comes across the one target that changes everything.

Millie LeCour is the darling of the London stage and absolutely nothing like the calculating and venomous creature Argent was told about, when he took the contract to end her life.

From the moment they meet, (whether he admits it right away or not) the last thing on his mind is killing the beautiful creature who set his dreams on fire with a simple waltz and a kiss. Protecting her on the other hand, quickly becomes an obsession.

As in the first Victorian Rebels story, THE HIGHWAYMAN, Byrne pulls no punches when it comes to telling a story that is so raw, dark and gritty, but also emotionally powerful that the reader becomes completely absorbed—heart, soul and mind—into each and every, scrumptious page.

They're rebels, scoundrels, and blackguards-dark, dashing men on the wrong side of the law. But for the women who love them, a hint of danger only makes the heart beat faster...

A scandalous proposal. Christopher Argent lives in the shadows as the empire's most elite assassin. Emotion is something he tossed away years ago, making him one of the most clear-eyed, cold-hearted, wealthiest, and therefore untouchable men in London. But when his latest target turns out to be London's own darling, Millicent LeCour, Christopher's whole world is turned upside down. Overwhelmed by her stunning combination of seduction and innocence, Christopher cannot complete the mission. She has made him feel again. Now, he will do anything to save her life, so that he can claim her as his own...

A perilous passion... When Millie learns what Christopher was hired to do, she is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this notorious hunter's arms may be her only path to safety-even if doing so could be the deadliest mistake she's ever made. But how can she resist him? As the heat between her and Christopher burns out of control, danger lurks in the shadows. Is their desire worth the risk? Only the enemy knows what fate has in store...
