It's been a while since I've read a book by Linda Howard. Part of the reason is that I haven't been into romantic suspense in the last few years. But I was feeling it, so I picked it up. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. The characters are the type you'd like to know. It starts with Angie Powell putting her fathers wilderness business up for sale because she know longer has the clients she once had. They are all with Dare Callahan (Don't you love the name?) These two are mad at each other without really knowing why. Angie takes two clients out to the wilderness, with Dare following her as a favor to Angie's fathers best friend. What should have been a simple hunting trip turned into terror and pain. With Dare's help she gets to safety. Oh, did I mention the bear? What until you read about him. Howard gave him thoughts! Loved it! I really enjoyed Prey and now want to read her next book. Happy reading!
