Hunted by Karen Robards

Lovereading view...

Seedy New Orleans shortly after Hurricane Katrina is a very dangerous place indeed especially since most of the cops appear to be bent. This is a fast tale of kidnapping, murder and corruption that turns into a steamy sex tale in the middle and once our couple have sated their lust we return to a fast-paced crime novel. Again all good fun.

If you like Karen Robards you might also like to read books by Nora Roberts, Karen Rose and Tami Hoag.


Hunted by Karen Robards

Caroline Wallace is one of New Orleans Police Department's top hostage negotiators, and she's never failed to get every hostage out alive. But this time, it's different: the hostages include her father - the superintendent of police - and the mayor. And this time, she's trying to negotiate with Reed Ware, a former co-worker who left the force in disgrace, and who is considered to be volatile and extremely dangerous. As police snipers arrive on the scene, Caroline has only a few moments left to persuade the hot-headed, reckless (and extremely handsome) Reed to turn himself in before anyone gets hurt. But when the SWAT team runs out of patience and launches an attack, Reed manages to escape - taking Caroline hostage in the chaos. He then tells her he's uncovered corruption at the highest levels of the police department and city government, and those involved will stop at nothing to keep him from exposing what he knows ...including murder. Now Caroline must question everything she thought she knew about her job and her city and join Reed on the run ...putting both her life - and her heart - in jeopardy.
