Deadly Pursuit



A stalker with deadly intent...A woman who protects children...An ex-Navy SEAL turned police detective.

Social worker Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children. But now it seems she needs protecting. When her tormentor's attentions take a violent turn, she calls in reinforcements -- her police-detective brother., Cole, and his new partner, ex-Navy SEAL, Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat and the danger intensities. Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Because protecting Alison has become more than a job, his future depends on keeping her safe.

Filled with nail-biting suspense and heart-melting romance, Deadly Pursuit is Irene Hannon's storytelling at its very best.

My Review:

This really is Hannon at her best. The suspense is there from the very first page, but it's the developing romance that held my attention in the beginning. Beautifully developed -- so natural -- loved the teasing conversations, the banter, the inner thoughts not yet divulged. And then..Kaboom!!!!!!! I was shocked. Truly stunned! I'd seen the foreshadowing but I didn't think she'd actually do it!!!!! Noooooooooooo - I whimpered as I rabidly turned pages. But even in the midst of the angst the hero shone brighter than any knight in shining armor and I was smitten with Hannon again, though I now think it's more of a love/hate author/reader relationship!.
