Fantastic book for her first Romantic Suspense book. From page one the book caught my attention, and didn't stop. When you hate to see a book end is when you know it was good, I hated to see this book end. Great Alpha Male without being overbearing. Heroine was feminine without being too hard or too clingy.
I am so glad I read this book. I had no idea that Lisa Marie Rice also wrote under the name Elizabeth Jennings. I love her erotic novels and am thrilled that I can now satisfy myself while waiting for her latest offering by reading all the Elizabeth Jennings books I've missed.
Charlotte is in trouble, wounded, and on the run. Her old sheltered and cosseted life just a memory now. She's concentrating all her energies on surviving and certainly doesn't have time for a man.
Matt is rebuilding his own life. His was torn apart just like his body during his last mission in Afghanistan. He's reached his lowest ebb and just when he thinks there's nothing left to live for...he sees her. His Angel. He doesn't know her name, who she is, what she does. But he does know she's survived something terrible. When he finds out how terrible, there's nothing he won't do to help her and avenge her.
What a pair. What a story. Whatever name she writes under, Jennings/Rice can yank you into the world of her characters with ease. It's not until the book is done and the story told, and then you surface back into the real world with your heart thumping. Absolutely fabulous.
I was engrossed in this book. It was a capturing story comparable to a early suzanne brockmann novel. I enjoyed the idea that two people can find eachother and realize their passion can be within and with each other in life.
Good read - contemporary romantic suspense. Great plot and interesting characters. The hero and heroine are both trying to deal with what happened in the past while seeing their way to the future. He is an ex-Seal who has been given a second chance at life [literally as he died in Afghanistan only to be brought back, endured multiple surgeries, spent weeks in a coma followed by months in a VA hospital trying to regain the use of his body]. She is a 'princess' - wealthy, loved, devoted to her family and her art - who sees her beloved father murdered, is shot by the murderer, accused of BEING the murderer by the machinations of the ultimate bad guy, and pursued by both good and bad guys.
They both end up in San Luis, a small, touristy, coastal town in Baja Sur. He is fighting to regain his health, she is fighting to regain some segments of her life. They are drawn to each other when he rescues her from drowning and he appoints himself her protector. He knows she is afraid but she refuses to tell him anything... And the ultimate bad guy hires an assassin to find and kill her.
Warning - there is one scene where the baddie kills her cat - suggest you flip rapidly past this [I did] if you are an animal lover.
On the plus side, I will look for more of the author's romantic suspense books - I've read her erotic ones [written as Lisa Marie Rice] and enjoyed most of them. However, if you're looking for frequent, detailed sex scenes - stick with Lisa Marie Rice. The h/h eventually get there but it takes many, many pages. Kind of charming, actually!
Loved it! Fast paced, page turning book! Who can protect Charlotte from the killers searching for her? Matt is a wounded Navy Seal trying to get his body back in shape after being in a coma. Can she trust him enough for help?
It seems I'm the dissenting voice in regards to "Pursuit".
As EJ is aka Lisa Marie Rice, I really wanted to like this one, but it ended up being bogged down with far too much superfluous description, and too much time spent in the 'big bad's" viewpoint.
The story itself wasn't bad, and I liked both the Heroine and the Hero, I jsut would have liked more time spent on the story and building their realtionship and
less time spent inside the characters heads.
