Overview

Hunted Heiress by Aeriell Lawton

Rich heiress is kidnapped for no apparent reason. Her plane crashes into dense forested area where it just happens that a police detective is taking a much needed rest from his undercover operations. He guides her back to civilization and safety. Her ordeal is over, or is it.
Although ""Hunted Heiress"" is a formulaic romance, the setting makes it somewhat different from most romances. It is somewhat annoying and amusing at the same time; for example, remember that the heiress is such a whiny little pain in the rear who has never in her life slept on the ground, or so much as seen a bug, let alone been swarmed by them. She readily adapts, however, to find herself attracted to her rescuer in spite of his ""common"" social standing. For a romance, this is both an amusing and entertaining short story. I would recommend this book to fans of romances. Also, if you have never read a romance, and think you'd like to try one, this is a good one to start with.

Hunted Heiress is a short read at 79 pages in .pdf format. Unfortunately, the story feels rushed. The author wastes no time on details, not even basic descriptions of the characters or their surroundings, making it difficult to picture the scenes. Main character Miranda is a New York socalite and daddy’s girl, being the only daughter of a famous business tycoon. She has the personality of a shoe, meaning, zero. She treats people like crap, she behaves like she’s the queen of the world, and she’s, in one word, annoying. When Miranda goes out on a trip to France, she gets kidnapped. Her kidnapper takes her on a plane, but unfortunately the plane crashes. Miranda survives and is recued by Ryan. Ryan is everything Miranda isn’t, and so much more. He’s handsome and attractive, and most of all, he’s friendly, brave and trustworthy, qualities Miss Perfect has never even heard of. But because he has a soft spot for damsels in distress, Ryan helps her out. He teaches her how to survive in the wilderness until they reach the nearest village. But with each passing day, the two of them grow closer together, and Miranda’s kidnapper gets closer to them… Like I mentioned, I liked Ryan, but I couldn’t stand Miranda. She did grow through some character progress in the novella, but it felt forced, too sudden and too quick for me to fully believe. The plot wasn’t that original either – girl gets kidnapped, is then rescued by a handsome stranger – but I thought the execution was rather well done. The writing was okay, and I didn’t feel bored at all while reading. If you’re in the mood for some quick, fun romance, then check out this novella.

Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite "Hunted Heiress" by Aeriell Lawton is a short tale that starts out with a rather arrogant, spoiled. rich girl getting ready for a trip to France, and winds up as a romance. In between, she is kidnapped; survives a private jet crash, as does her captor; and is rescued by a nearby camper who just happens to be a policeman. After her rescue, she has to camp out with her rescuer for two nights as they slowly trek toward the nearest town. At the same time, her captor awakens from being knocked out in the crash, and quickly ascertains that his captive has been rescued. He follows their footprints, but as they had pitched their tent some distance from the trail, he walks right past them and beats them to town. When they finally get to town a second kidnapping attempt is foiled once again by the vacationing policeman, and the kidnapper is arrested by the local Sheriff. The story ends as all romances end, so I won't go into details. Although "Hunted Heiress" is a formulaic romance, the setting makes it somewhat different from most romances. It is somewhat annoying and amusing at the same time; for example, remember that the heiress is such a whiny little pain in the rear who has never in her life slept on the ground, or so much as seen a bug, let alone been swarmed by them. She readily adapts, however, to find herself attracted to her rescuer in spite of his "common" social standing. For a romance, this is both an amusing and entertaining short story.
