A desperate girl on the run with nowhere to hide... A warrior who has made a vow never to claim a bride... Sophia Waterhouse is being Hunted and the only man who can save her is the one she fears the most...Thoughts on Hunted: It's been quite a while since I read book 1 in this series and, well, I liked this book but I REALLY wanted the know-it-all mate to a twin set to be taken down a peg or two. Not Kat. I liked her. The other one. Her sly attitude irritated me enough I wanted to see her put in her place.
Sophia Waterhouse has always been afraid of needles and vampires so there’s no way she wants anything to do with a modern day Count Dracula—even if he does come wrapped in the package of a huge Kindred warrior with blond hair and ice blue eyes. She’s only on the Kindred Mothership to participate in her sister Liv’s wedding and that’s all.
Sylvan is a Tranq Kindred who has made a sacred vow never to call a bride. After a devastating rejection on his home planet, his heart is a block of ice no one can melt—or so he thinks until he meets Sophia.
When their ship is forced down in the middle of a rugged mountain range Sophia and Sylvan are stranded. Running for their lives they have only each other to depend on. Will they give in to the intense attraction between them or will the evil hunting Sophia take its toll? You’ll have to read Brides of the Kindred Book 2—Hunted to find out.
But this is Sylvan and Sophia's story. They take their time coming to terms with their feelings. Quite a long time, in fact. I'm all for stories with slow burn, but the way those two danced around one another took it to new heights. Just suck it up and accept you have a few things to work out so you can get to the sexin' already!
Which isn't to say I didn't enjoy the foreplay. Sylvan certainly puts himself out there as far as making sure Sophia was, well, pleasured. He gives and gives and gives. It just takes him a while to allow her to reciprocate. Which I actually got, since she had such a phobia about the biting and he REALLY wanted to do that part.
Anywho. We got a little face time with Baird and Olivia. Kat and her twin hunks were set up nicely. Plus, there was the whole Xairn thing. That guy totally deserves some happy time after what he's forced to endure with his jerk of a dad.
Enjoyable, if a little slow at times. There's a big cast of characters here and it only looks to get bigger as the series progresses.
