HUNTED ~ KAREN ROBARDS
This is the first book I've read by this author, but it definitely won't be the last. I definitely was hooked to this romantic suspense novel by her.
Reed Ware gets a call from Hollis that something bad is going down. He is even able to get pictures of what is happening, a shooting in the cemetery.
The action begins.......Reed holds some of the New Orleans elite hostage and a hostage negotiator is called in. The first surprise is that the hostage negotiator is someone that Reed knows. He was once called in to do security for her family and she, Caroline, was 17 and had a crush on Reed. Caroline went so far as to kiss Reed, who kissed her back, only to dump her in a pool.
Caroline ends up going into the house that Reed is holding the hostages with Hollis and boom, bang, the hostages are set free and Reed manages to escape with Hollis and takes Caroline along as a hostage. After that they are being "Hunted" by none other than the New Orleans police.
This book had a great cast of characters who were easy to like and the book wrapped up with some unexpected twists and lots of suspense.
