Deadly Pursuit

Deadly Pursuit

ISBN: 978-0800734572
September, 2011/352 pages/$14.99

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 intensifies, 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.

Irene Hannon is the author of more than 35 novels, including the CBA bestsellers Against All Odds, An Eye for an Eye, and In Harm's Way. Her books have been honored with the coveted RITA Award from Romance Writers of America, the HOLT Medallion, the Daphne du Maurier award, and two Reviewer's Choice Awards from Romantic Times BOOKreviews magazine. She lives in Missouri.

I loved Fatal Judgment, the first book in this series (my review is here), so it was with eager anticipation that I began reading this one. Be prepared to stay up into the wee hours, because Irene Hannon has written another heart-pounding winner. Once again she oh-so-slowly escalates the suspense and tension of this story, giving enough of a glimpse of Alison's stalker that I practically wanted to crawl into the book to tell Mitch and Cole how to catch him! This novel is a perfect balance of romance and suspense, and the addition of the sibling sparring between Alison and her brothers enhances the story. Irene Hannon has secured a spot on my keeper shelf and I look forward to more of her work.
