Women are being taken in Virginia, and FBI agent Mark Gallagher is determined to put a stop to it. Certain he’s closing in on the killer known as The Embracer, Mark is less than thrilled when he’s partnered with rookie agent Colleen Law, worried she’s a liability when there’s so much at stake.
But like everyone in the Krewe of Hunters, Colleen has talents that extend beyond the usual investigative toolbox. She can hear the voices of the victims in her head, and they’re telling her she and Mark are near to uncovering the truth.
When Mark’s prime suspect takes a liking to Colleen, he’s surprisingly protective of his new partner, even as he admits her connection to the victims is key. But tense interrogations turn dangerously personal when someone close to Colleen goes missing, luring the agents deep into the shadows of wooded rural Virginia, where nobody can hear them scream.
The Krewe of Hunters world is vast; most of the novels are part of a trilogy which then moved on to the next case that will begin a new trilogy.

While I’ve read the entire Krewe of Hunters series over the years, I have not reviewed each novel, and to go back now would be quite daunting and time-consuming. So, I stick to reviewing the more current trilogy.
This is an adult 18+ story that may contain language, possible violence, and/or sexual situations geared to an adult audience.
Resident bad boy and saloon owner Grady Carson knows his brother is not a murderer, and he’ll do anything to prove it. But partnering with Laurel Delaney? Worst idea ever.
The beautiful by-the-book cop challenges him like no other. Bad family blood–and a killer at large– make their attraction unthinkable. Dangerous. Reckless. How can they solve a crime to prevent a family war and then let forbidden love ignite it anew?
Titles in the Carsons & Delaneys series include – Wyoming Cowboy Justice – Wyoming Cowboy Protection – Wyoming Christmas Ransom
Carsons & Delaneys connects to the Carsons & Delaneys: Battle Tested series which includes – Wyoming Cowboy Marine – Wyoming Cowboy Sniper – Wyoming Cowboy Ranger – Wyoming Cowboy Bodyguard
If you read books then you have a To Be Read list/pile/tower of doom — we all do. They might be physical books on your bookshelf, ebooks stored on your e-readers, or simply books that you’ve written down somewhere to get to “someday”. Yeah. We all have TBR piles – and mine is so out of control it isn’t even the slightest bit funny in a haha kinda way but more of an Oh My Goodness what have I done! way.
I’m picking twenty (20) books from my bought but haven’t read yet TBR – all from various lines of Harlequin™. This past year has been heavy with NetGalley ARC commitments, way more than I should have but put a book cover in front of me and I’m like a kid in a candy store — they all look so “good”. But I’ve put the brakes on (or at least I’m tapping the brakes) so that I can get to some of my purchased books from 2019. All of my adult reading life I have adored Harlequin. Yet, I haven’t read as many or gotten caught up on ongoing series in recent years due to other online and real-life commitments. That changes in 2020 as I’m taking more time for my own personal reading experiences and this challenge will work perfectly to help me keep on track to get those bought but not read books into my brain, my heart and off of my Kindle. I’m determined.
My list of books will follow in the next section of this post. When read and/or reviewed they will either be crossed out or linked to the review post here at Keeper Bookshelf.
After five seasons as a wallflower, Lettie Fairchild is resigned to spinsterhood. Mostly. Determined to claim more meaning for her life than seeing her younger sisters married, she seeks a purpose. She finds what she’s looking for when she happens upon a book describing seven curses that plague London.
Nathaniel Hawke is attempting to adjust to civilian life after retiring from the military, but his injured leg and memories of his time in the service prevent an easy transition. On his long walks during London’s darkest hours, Nathaniel is appalled by what he sees taking place on the dirty streets and alleyways. He is determined to take action. Coming upon a proper, if rebellious, lady in the desolate area both intrigues and frustrates him.
Nathaniel’s disregard for his personal safety infuriates Lettie even as her heart is touched by his determination to aid the city’s neglected children.
As the two wounded souls stumble upon each other time and again in slums and ballrooms, they realize they fight a common cause–and share an unbridled passion.
Will the curse they fight be their downfall? Or will love win the day?
