He succeeds in murdering the old man, but only wounds Charlotte who escapes. Still, Robert slightly adjusts his nefarious scheme with some unwitting help from Police Chief Bryzinski from murder suicide to murder insuring the evidence proves Charlotte killed her dad. --- Ailing from her wound, Charlotte escapes to Mexico while a national manhunt for her as dangerous occurs.

They are attracted to one another, but a wary Charlotte hides her quandary from him. Matt hopes the woman he loves will share what makes her constantly look over her shoulder while Robert needs her silent forever to take over the Court billions permanently. --- This exciting romantic suspense thriller stars two likable combatants recuperating from their wounds while falling in love. Charlotte turns from pampered princess to amazon warrior as she prepares to take down her enemy. Matt needs to be with her when she steps into danger, but wonders what she is about to do as she hides her past from him. The final kick is extremely realistic as the audience will cheer for Charlotte to take down the clever Haine. --- Harriet Klausner

This is a great read, irrespective of the fact that the cat gets killed. The lead characters are interresting and their need for each other is very compelling. I was hooked from the first page and can't wait to read more from this author.

Charlotte Court witnessed her father¿s murder by the CEO¿s right hand man. She was shot and framed for the murder. On the run, she met Matt Sanders, former Navy Seal . There is an instant attraction between the two of them. He vows to find out what has her scared and protect her. Pursuit by Elizabeth Jennings is a fabulous read. I did not want to put this book down. The plot is fast-moving and has nonstop action. The combination of intrigue and romance makes this a real winner. I look forward to more books by Elizabeth Jennings.

I looooved the story line and the chemistry between the characters. The story was sweet, raw and Steamy at the same time. I loves the prose of the love scenes and all the emotional play that went into it. The author truly built a strong story with believable characters that touch you and make you relate on a deeper level. truly recommended!!

Worth every penny of the $2.99. I skipped over a lot of it al-though the story line could have been great without all the repetitive thinking. Oh well, you get what you pay for. I will try another by this author though.

OUTSTANDING! I absolutely loved this book. It kept my interest the entire time. The suspense was superb. The heroine was amazing as was the hero. Talk about compelling: Yowza, he was intense and hot. Every time he said " honey " I just wanted to melt. Definitely worth your time and money.##

I bought this book with the expectation and understanding that it was a romantic suspense, knowing that murder and mayhem would occur. What I did not know is that this writer includes a very gory and graphic slaughter of a Persian cat by the bad guy. What is it with writers that feel that this type of thing enhances the book? As an animal lover I find this offensive, and totally appalling. It adds no value to the plot of the story as I already knew that the bad guy was crazy.For this reason I will not purchase another book by this writer.Nor,did I finish this one. Publishers and authors wake up. This type of thing and the foul and nasty language is a Turnoff. If you are planning to buy this book, I would save my money.
