Now, Fae Hunter is not necessarily a stand alone. You can read it and you’ll understand what’s going on, but you won’t get a truly good picture of what Bitsy and Keegan have to work through unless you read Fae Encounter. (And you should read it. It’s no hardship. Trust me.) And boy oh boy, do Bitsy and Keegan have some stuff to work through.
As you can see from the blurb, werewolf shifter (and pack alpha) Keegan came up with the idea to hunt Bitsy’s kind, the fae, in order to use them as livestock (basically) in a Texas-style rodeo. (There’s that original thinking I was telling you about, eh? You don’t see faerie rodeos in Kresley Cole, Jeaniene Frost, or JR Ward reads, now do you?) He had his reasons, which are logical (if not totally reasonable or fair). Nothing he did was out of sheer hatred of her species or out of meanness. (Which doesn’t make his actions OK, but I digress…) Honestly, I wasn’t sure how the author was going to redeem Keegan after Fae Encounter, but my concern was unwarranted. He groveled and made amends with Bitsy quite nicely, which was lovely.
Bitsy is a pretty tough cookie, too. She doesn’t automatically fall on her back with her legs up in the air the first time Keegan apologizes. She makes him work for it, and I totally appreciated that about her.
Long-story-short: Get your 1-clicking fingers ready. Feel free to start binge-reading the series at any time.
Full disclosure: We received an ARC from the author at no charge.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It’s clean and sober. No rehab needed.
