He’d always been a hunter. But now federal agent Jackson Castle was both savior and prey, tracking a deadly killer who had targeted the woman he’d loved and lost. But first he had to convince her to open her heart to him all over again.  Claire Munroe had put her stormy affair with Jackson behind her two years ago. Now he’d returned, bringing danger to her door, rocking her secure life. Ill-prepared to confront the man who’d stolen her heart, Claire had to decide which posed a greater threat—their reignited passion, or the murderer who hunted them both…

I don’t read many categories anymore, not sure why, but I just seem to be gravitating toward “bigger” books for reading pleasure.  But regardless of what my current preferences are, I know that anything written by Maggie Price is NEVER going to disappoint, and this book is no exception.  Jackson and Claire face real-life dilemmas that are deeply rooted in their childhoods and bone-deep beliefs, rather than two people who are angsting because it furthers the storyline.  They know they’re perfect for each other on a physical level, but their belief in what makes a life whole and complete is what separates them…and they both acknowledge it, rather than falling into the tired and oft-used “misunderstanding”.  As always, Price writes with unwavering authority about police procedure and delves into the personalities of her characters with an accuracy and believability that makes all of her books seem much longer and fuller.  If you want a book that only takes a few hours to read, but blazes by in nonstop action and freakin’ phenomenal writing, pick this up before it disappears.
