Deadly Pursuit (Blood Hunter, #2)

             Deadly Pursuit (Blood Hunter #2)


Breaking assassin Jonathon Decker out of a maximum security prison on Trakis One seemed like a good idea at the time. Now, pursued across space by the two most powerful factions in the universe, the crew of El Cazador are having second thoughts. They'd like to give him back. Unfortunately, that no longer seems an option.

Jon is used to working alone. Now, he's stuck on the space cruiser El Cazador until he can work out just what he's supposed to know that puts him on everybody's most-wanted-dead list. He s not happy that the crew includes a runaway priestess with designs on his virtue such as it is. Jon likes women, but he gave up the role of protector a long time ago, and Alexia, High Priestess of the Church of Everlasting Life, is an accident waiting to happen.

After twenty-four excruciatingly boring years of doing her duty, Alex is finally having some fun. She never meant to run away it was a rash impulse and she means to go back eventually. But first, she's going to squeeze enough excitement out of the situation to last her a lifetime. And what could be more exciting than a stunningly gorgeous werewolf?

Meanwhile, the Church are chasing their missing priestess, and the Collective are pursuing their escaped assassin. Being hunted has never been more deadly...or more fun.

  Deadly Pursuit is Nina Croft’s second novel in her Blood Hunter series and it’s fantastic. I love Nina Croft’s writing. She is an awesome writer. Croft has the prefect balance of action, drama, and romance that creates the most can't-put-this-book-down-until-the-last-page feeling. I also loved every one of these characters in this series, and they’re all back in this second novel with one new addition of Jon. A gorgeous werewolf that they rescue from prison at the ending of the first book Break Out. Where the romance between Rico and Skylar in Break Out was humorous and fun, and had me rolling with laugher, Jon and Alexia’s love had my heart breaking for the hard loner Jon.

Alexia had everybody fooled as the cabin boy, Al. She’s been hiding out on the blood hunter from the church so she could live a little before she has to return as the High Priestess. Well, that was her plan until a gorgeous werewolf came on broad the blood hunter, and then she wanted one more thing she hadn't got to experience as a High Priestess. Jon’s not interested in what Alex's wants or needs. But you know what they say about the tougher a man is, the harder they fall. Alex, at five foot, is going to bring this six foot werewolf down to her level and melt that cold heart he hides behind.

I love the way Nina Croft brings all the characters into the romance between Jon and Alex, and where these two are so serious. Rico with his cocky self always brings out the fun in serious situation. This is one awesome series. I highly recommend Deadly Pursuit as a must read, and if you haven't read Break Out yet, then I recommend you do. Nina Croft's Blood Hunter series is one you don't want to miss out on reading.
