"A vow to the dead...the mark of the Hunt...a love with one chance to survive."

"Wild Hunt," Book 2

In the slice of a moment, Ian Callahan lost everything he cared about-a deed done by his own hand. He awakens on the edge of sanity, chained in his own personal hell. He is to be the newest rider in the Wild Hunt, if he can learn to control the rage and guilt that consume him.

Then...a whiff of vanilla. The face of a lover he's seen only in his dreams. He doesn't know her name, only that she stirs the hungry beast within him.

For a millennium, Tegan and her sibling riders of the Wild Hunt were imprisoned, suffering under a curse meant for the Unseelie Court. Though her body is free, she carries the curse with her-and the additional burden of finally knowing the name of her destined mate. A human named Ian Callahan.

He's her Trojan horse, the only one who can heal her heart. Just one last challenge stands in the way of claiming each other, once and for all. Failure means facing eternity the incomplete halves of a whole.

"Warning: Contains a hero who's more than just the total...package. And a daughter of the Underworld who thought she knew what Hell was...until she fell in love. Boundaries of monogamy pushed, pulled, stretched-but never broken."

Hunter Forsaken by Nancy Corrigan (Wild Hunt #2)

Hunter Forsaken (Wild Hunt #2)Ian Callahan is a demigod in a human body, for three years he has dreamed of love with a beautiful and mysterious woman, and for three years he has hovered on the brink of insanity. Now he is to become part of the Wild Hunt. Little did he know his dream woman would become reality and she would be one of the most powerful of the Wild Hunt’s most powerful leaders.

Tegan had a millennium to suffer the curse meant for the Unseelie Court, now free, she still carries the burden of that time and a long held secret, the name of her true mate. You guessed it, Ian Callahan. He is said to be her inner healer, her destiny, but she wasn’t expecting Ian to have a fragile human body, or for him to be an incubus. Is this Hell’s way of playing a practical joke on her/ she has been betrayed before and refuses to be betrayed again. She wants a one woman man and Ian hardly fits the bill. She doesn’t need a protector in such a delicate body, she is more than capable of taking care of herself, but it seems her heart may be betraying her now, as she fights the attraction that the gods have deemed her fate.

Nancy Corrigan takes us to Hell and beyond, into the world of the faeries where returning is not always possible. Action-packed, highly charged with sexual tension, and written with a blistering pace, there is little time to relax as we watch one man discover his past, and the havoc it can raise and one woman deny herself what she is afraid to trust in.

Drenched in sexual undertones and scenes that are blistering hot, they are part of the story, not gratuitous page fillers, Ian is an incubus, it is part of him, both a curse and a means of survival. That said this is clearly not for those who blush easily. Enter the world of the children of Arawn as they come to terms with the lives they have been dealt while finding their hearts can still crave another through eternity or until death do they part.

I received this copy from Nancy Corrigan in exchange for my honest review.
