Duke should hate Analise Morell. He knows this, his mind knows this, but his heart is being stubborn. Duke is unable to keep her smell from his nostrils or his eyes from looking for and roaming over her figure. He does not trust her, but he wants her. When she calls Excelsior for help, Duke is the last man that should have been sent to help her, but he is the only man his traitorous heart will allow near her. With time not on their hands and a killer to find, Duke will need to stay on his toes to keep himself in control. Yeah. It’s a good idea, but so not happening!
I am glad that the majority of HUNTER’S NEED took place in Alaska. The icy climate was the perfect counterpoint to the scorching hot love scenes with touching and compelling interactions between Duke and Ana which would have melted wax on the pages of this phenomenal read. Plotwise, HUNTER’S NEED is one of the most attention grabbing and consistent novels penned by Shiloh Walker. She has placed just the right amount of emotion and sexual tension in HUNTER’S NEED.
The ability to make characters vulnerable to love but still very strong is one of the traits I find I have to have when reading a romance novel, and HUNTER’S NEED has this and so much more. I didn’t want to put it down – and I actually didn’t! I read HUNTER’S NEED cover to cover and found it to be one of Shiloh Walker’s best, and I’m sure other readers will as well!
