Review: The Hunter by Kerrigan Byrne

A scandalous proposal.

As one of London's most elite hunters, Christopher Argent never misses his mark and always gets his man. But when his latest target turns out to be a woman—the popular, and stunningly beautiful, actress Millie LeCour—it turns his whole world upside-down. Overwhelmed by the heat that simmers between them, Christopher can't complete his mission. On the contrary, he'll do anything to save Millie's life—even if it means risking his own...

A dangerous passion...

When she learns what Christopher was hired to do, Millie is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this dangerous man's arms may be her only path to safety—but giving in to her desire may be the deadliest mistake she's ever made. With both of their lives in jeopardy, Millie and Christopher must learn to trust the real feelings they're hiding—to find the true love they're looking for...

Christopher Argent is a dark, powerful man.  He's also a trained hunter/assassin, who is paid well for his jobs.  He's tasked with killing Millie LeCour, but once he sees the actress, he duty changes.  

The beginning of The Hunter details Argent's beginnings.  He's a little bit haunted by those experiences, naturally, but they also helped shape him into the gritty man he is now.  He is instantly attracted to Millie, despite the fact that he's supposed to kill her, and he begins to sense there is more to Millie's story than he's being told.  

I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed The Hunter.  Dark and brooding heroes aren't my favorite, but something about Argent really drew me to him.  I'm very much looking forward to The Highlander in August. 

(A very special thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of The Hunter.)
