Book Description: The war for Scotland’s freedom continues as King Robert the Bruce battles on. At his command is an elite army of trained warriors, soldiers dedicated to their king, their country—and to the remarkable women they love.
Prized for his unbeatable tracking skills, Ewen “Hunter” Lamont accepts a dangerous assignment: locate a missing undercover courier. But this is no ordinary target. Ewen has met his prey before as “Sister Genna,” a fiery, forbidden woman forever etched in his memory after one stolen, sinful kiss. Now that he knows her real identity, he’s more determined than ever to keep her safe. But without the protection of the veil between them, fighting the allure of the beautiful lass may be the toughest battle this extraordinary warrior has ever faced.
After her ill-fated attempt three years ago to rescue her twin sister, Janet of Mar has found salvation acting as a royal messenger—until she surrenders to a darkly handsome warrior whose rough, sensual kisses stir feelings the woman in her can’t deny. But when betrayal leads to danger, and a crucial communiqué is put in jeopardy, Janet has no choice but to put her faith in the hunter who can find anything—perhaps even her heart.
Ewen and Janet stole my heart from the very beginning. Janet is the type of woman that I think we all want to be. She is strong and confident and has a way with words. She thinks on her feet and never gives up. She doest care that she is a woman, she knows she has value in a war and she intends to prove it. Ewen is your typical man in that day in age who thinks a woman’s place is at home taking care of the children. It was wonderful watching him come to the realization of just how wrong he was in that belief. Janet makes him see things in a whole new light and she opens up his heart and helps him find true happiness. Their love story had my heart breaking at some points but I was overcome with joy at the end. They are the type of couple that you root for the whole way through. As you read you’re trying to figure out how they could possibly make things work because they have to find a way. They just have to. I truly enjoyed reading The Hunter by Monica McCarty, she yet again captivates her readers and moves them to tears in her heart retching stories of finding true love at a time when the odds are always against you.
