Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Jenna Caldwell thinks that her life will be perfect when she marries the powerful and wealthy David Merrick, heir to the Merrick dynasty and fortune. What the marriage brings her, however, is the temper of a man who tries to control her through violence and pain. The divorce delivers no relief, as David delights in the hunt and the eventual beating that will be his retribution. With the help of her attorney, Jenna runs to the Colorado ranch home of Jack Turner, a cowboy with an army past. She arrives at the Turner ranch beaten, bleeding, hanging to life—and Jack immediately is drawn to the haunted, and hunted, beauty. While Jenna slowly heals, she is attracted to Jack: his strength, his safety, and his love. He is the perfect, modern-day cowboy, allowing Jenna to be strong and fight back on her own—as long as she ends the day in his bed!

Verdict This first installment in Ryan’s “Hunted” series presents a perfect example of a woman almost destroyed by the madman that is her husband. While Jenna is beaten many times, she is no victim; she refuses to accept this abuse and further learns that not all men are like her ex-husband. You will find yourself rooting for the battered Jenna and the sexy Jack, who fights so hard to win her bruised and battered heart.—Judy Taylor Garner, Strayer Univ., Glen Allen, VA

Meet the Author

Jennifer Ryan is the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of The Hunted Series. She writes romantic suspense and contemporary small-town romances featuring strong men and equally resilient women. Her stories are filled with love, friendship, and the happily-ever-after we all hope to find. Jennifer lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, three children, dog (Bella), and cat (Shadow).

When she isn't writing a book, she's reading one. Her obsession with both is often revealed in the state of her home and in how late dinner is to the table. When she finally leaves those fictional worlds, you'll find her in the garden, playing in the dirt and daydreaming about people who live only in her head, until she puts them on paper.

    Fast paced page-turner

    Characters were great. Could almost picture the beautiful ranch. The main character's mind was brilliant to keep herself alive and attempt to set herself free once and for all. The underlying lesson is that everyone needs someone to count on, no matter how strong you are. I could have done wothout the explicit sex scenes and occasional foul language - these were just not necessary, the storyline could have stood on its own without that. To each their own, I just know some people like to know if these things are present in a book.

    Content good, ebook format not so good

    I enjoyed reading the book. I will probably read more of Ms. Ryan's books when they are published. I know that an occasional error will happen, but there were a great number of homophones misused. There was also a loop of several pages that you had to use the "Go to" command to get past. If I'm going to read on my Nook, I'd like to see as much care taken with the text as is taken with paperbacks, at the least. As someone as old as dinosaurs, I'm adapting to the misuse of many words and the changing verb tenses that are considered acceptable. However, I am one of those who does not believe in "dumbing down" grammar. Oh, well.

    Kids and grammar nazis

    Between all the kids using the nook as a chat room and a play ground, and the grammar nazis grading the book instead of reading it and plot spoilers giving away the entire story line, its hard to get a true review of the book.

    Loved the way the author told this story. Abuse no matter what form it takes is very hard to get away from. It became very tense at times but I found the heroine a very strong person. Loved Jack and all the secondary characters who helped make the story come to life. To me the story is very believeable. I will continue reading this author's books and hope she will continue with some of these secondary characters. JudyE

    Good at first then very bad

    I was hooked in the beginning but before I was halfway through I was forcing myself to keep reading. I finally actually did quit with about 50 pages to go.

    They fell in love way to quick. And she throws her money around so much that I can't imagine it meaning anything any more and extremely unrealistic.

    look at how poorly that dog has been photoshopped into the picture. If the cover is this poorly designed, what can you expect of the book itself???

    I am very impressed with this author.   Even though this is fiction, this was a real life situation that is occurring in our society today.  If she puts such real life situations into all of her works of fiction,  this author will be very popular for years to come.  Good job, Jennifer Ryan!

    I stopped reading half way through. The storyline was just too ridiculous. Jack falls in love with her while she's passed out and recovering from being beaten. He's lusting after her while she is unconscious, battered and covered in bruises. Weird.
    Then she wakes up and imediately trusts this man she doesnt even know. I stopped reading when she is ready to have his babies after knowing him less than a week. There's no real dialogue or getting to know each other. Too unrealistic for me.

    This book was just ok.  With all her money, why didn't she take self-defense classes or buy a gun and learn to shoot it?  If she was so brilliant then why keep running from a coward? Too sappy and unrealistic story line.

    Not that exciting

    You can pretty much anticipate the next page. Not what I would call a page turner or even humorous.
