Posted April 9, 2013 by Shari in Book Tour, Guest Post / 0 Comments


Elizabeth Hamilton has created the quiet life she’s always wanted with good friends, a close-knit family, and her sweet treats. Her Decadence Bakery is the talk of the town. With lines out the door every day, she’s a busy businesswoman who loves what she does. Brides often stalk her in hopes she’ll create the perfect wedding cake to complete their ideal wedding.

Brides-to-be aren’t the only stalkers dogging her heels. Elizabeth’s ex has deluded himself into thinking she’ll marry him, gaining him entry into her exclusive circle of wealthy and influential friends. Rather than wanting to give her his name, he wants to use hers to get what he wants.

As if her life isn’t busy and complicated enough, she saves FBI agent Sam Turner and unknowingly puts a target on her back. Bridezillas and a delusional ex she can handle, but a serial killer bent on silencing her before she can identify him is going to take all her strength and perseverance. Thankfully, Sam is by her side.

Sam feels responsible for her in a way that goes far beyond protective custody – it’s personal. Playing her fake fiancé to thwart her ex quickly becomes a game Sam wants to make a reality. Elizabeth can’t wait to start her life with Sam, the only man who’s ever seen past the Hamilton name and fortune and seen her. Before their life together can begin, they’ll have to eliminate the threats against her. She’s counting on Sam to keep her safe, and trusts him with her life – even when he’s got a gun pointed at her.

The Hunted series continues as Special Agent Sam Turner discovers protecting the FBI’s star witness is more difficult than he thought!

Bakery owner Elizabeth Hamilton’s quiet life is filled with sweet treats, good friends, and a loving family. But all of that is about to turn sour when an odd sound draws her outside. There’s a man lying unconscious in the street, a car speeding toward them. Without hesitation, she gets the man out of harm’s way before they’re run down.

Unwittingly, Elizabeth has put herself in the path of a serial killer, and as the only one who can identify the FBI’s Silver Fox Killer, she’s ended up in the hospital with a target on her back.

The only man standing between her and death is Special Agent Sam Turner. Against his better judgment, Sam gets emotionally involved…determined to take down the double threat against Elizabeth – an ex desperate to get her back, despite a restraining order, and a killer bent on silencing her before she can identify him.

They set a trap to catch a killer – putting Elizabeth in the killer’s hands and Sam desperate to save her. If he’s lucky, he’ll get his man…and the girl.
