He was born to kill her…but he’ll risk all to save her
Wild Hunt, Book 1
Every day, Harley fights the urge to embrace the dark heritage that could turn her Unseelie. Evil. Bad. A nightmarish monster like the ones that wiped out her family. The only thing keeping her on this side of Seelie is a promise made to the ghostly man who saved her that terrible night.
Whenever she’s tempted, she calls up a vision of his eyes. Hears his voice calling her back from the brink of madness. Years later, when she returns to the scene of her living hell, he’s her only hope for salvation.
Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, was created to protect mankind from the Unseelie Court, not love one of them. He never expected the rightness he felt with her all those years ago would explode into desire.
But saving her from a fate she can’t escape could damn them both…and leave the world open for destruction.
Warning: Contains a half-fae woman who could really use a Seelie version of AA to stay clean and monster-free. And a rider of the Wild Hunt who’ll take any risk to keep her safe from her enemies. Including himself.
Note: This book was previously published. It has been expanded and re-edited.
Hunter Deceived placed a new twist on fairies that I have not come across before. I always knew of the Seelie and Unseelie but this took an even darker turn with the lore. Harley has been on the run and in hiding all of her life in order to escape her fate of becoming Unseelie by succumbing to her darker nature. The one thing keeping her dark side at bay is the mysterious ghost of a man she met years ago whom she made a promise to. However it proves to be increasingly difficult to resist her dark side as the lives of those she loves are threatened.
Harley and Calan’s relationship was steamy all the way through, although it felt a little rushed without a whole lot of development it was definitely still enjoyable to read about. Calan is not your typical male lead by any means, but he is quite the badass and intimidating through and through (hello leader of the Hunt). There were plenty of plot twists and gory action sequences in this book. They were almost non-stop, however, some of them ended before they even started which was a little bit of a let down at times but each scene had a purpose that was fulfilled.
Overall, Hunter Deceived was a unique New Adult novel that will bring in all the swooning and keep you on the edge of your seat throughout.

A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there’s a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won’t find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with women strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone’s norm.
She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she’s the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she’s married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.
