    One thought on “The Hunter”

    1. I am feeling lazy and don't wanna write a big review so I really liked it. Not as much as the first one but it was still really good. Loved both the hero and heroine. The sex was hot. The action was kick ass. Wish it would have had an epilogue.

    2. *An ARC was given in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to the writer and the publisher for the opportunity to read this.*My conscience and I had a little debate earlier. Apparently, that loyal motherfucker felt bad for giving this a rating of 3.5 stars (and because I downgrade, I ended up giving it 3 stars). Conscience: Daniella, you get your ass back there and read that book again. That 3.5 rating feels wrong.Me: Er, what the hell are you talking about? I've already rated—Conscience: R [...]

    3. The hunter became her ensnared prey.Kids these days…have it SO good. Just today I asked my son three times to get out of his pajamas and unpack the dishwasher. It wasn’t until I very calmly walked up to him and asked if I could look at his iPad (sucker ha…ha…ha…ha). I then told him he could MAYBE have it back if he did what I asked. The indignation and horror on his face were PRICELESS. How dare I ask him to do his chores and make him stop having fun for 5 minutes…10 minutes tops? Ba [...]

    4. "If I have to listen to those fucking people for one more moment, I'll spill their entrails on the floor in front of everyone."I know the feeling, Mr. Stone Cold Assassin! And, let me tell YOU that if I have to read one more page of your whining, "poor me. I'm not good enough for her. I'll ruin her. I'm so dark and cold and evil" blah blah blah I might just spill YOUR entrails all over the floor.And, another thing. Mr. Stone Cold Ass, if you are so cold and heartless, how do you insta-love so mu [...]

    5. He didn't fear death. Didn't appreciate life. He was fond of nothing and therefore didn't fear pain or loss.Holy WOW! I'm obsessed with this series. I loved this book even more than the first and I freaking LURVED the first. If tortured anti-heroes are your thing, it just doesn't get much better than Christopher Argent. A ruthless and cold blooded killer; his reputation is one of legend. But what happens when a killer for hire falls for his mark?This must be what religious men felt as they fell [...]

    6. “I have killed so many,” he murmured. “Don’t you know that it’s too late for me? Don’t you realize that if there is anything but oblivion after this life, I am well and truly damned?” This book starts off with a heartbreaking and horrific prologue of when Christopher was young. Christopher Ardent was born in Newgate Prison. His mother, Christine, was a prostitute who let the prison guards use her body in order to procure food and firewood for her little son. She loved him very much [...]

    7. 3.5 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Christopher Argent is a name that is only whispered. He is London's underworld premier assassin and born in Newgate, he has no mercy in his soul. It is when he has his hands around Millie LeCour's neck that the first crack of emotion starts to reveal the man underneath the darkness that has encased him all his life. Born in Whitechaple, Millie has becom [...]

    8. On one hand you have this normally indiscriminate killer falling in insta love with his mark and in a way it's all romantic. He fights it but pretty much is done for Millie. On the other hand This dude is willing to kill anything but kids if the price is right. It seems to me that having gone through a heartbreaking experience with his mother, he shouldn't be able to do that to women so readily, but nope. He doesn't give a fig. Unless it's a kid. That's the biggest hurdle to get over for me. Th [...]

    9. BeautifulThe prologue was a punch so strong it was! I was horrified!The hero, Christopher reminded me of Sicarius from The Emperor's Edge. He is cold, seemingly heartless assissin.But, since you know what happened to him in the prologue, you understand him and don't judge. At least I didn't :)I loved his blunt and honest opinions and how he spoke with the heroine, Millie. He was always brutally honest and I loved that he sometimes make her uncofortable!I also Like Millie. She's a true friend and [...]

    10. 5 stars!***Thank you so much to Netgalley, Kerrigan Byrne and the publishers for allowing me the opportunity of reading this book for a honest review.***Let's start by sayingWOW.So I fell in love with Kerrigan Byrne's writing with The Highwayman and it only improved with The Hunter!Meet my Christopher Argent:Meet my Millie LeCour:Like, Dorian Blackwell, we have Christopher Argent who is broken, no, ruined beyond repair and he has nothing to live for. He's an assassin for hire but he no longer ne [...]

    11. 3.5 Let Me Fix You StarsChristopher Argent is another beautifully broken bastard. He has a cruel and brutal origin story and I really wanted to sit down and cry and eat an entire box of chocolates after the prologue. Born to a prostitute in prison he has been chain born all of his life and knows nothing else. His mother does the best by him that she can and so she lets the guards do unmentionable things to her in order to have extra food and wood. She is the best mother she can be to Argent in a [...]

    12. I hate that I am so late writing this review. It's in no way a reflection on this book, because I loved it. Christopher Argent is the real deal. He is in every way a lethal assassin. Yes he really does almost kill Millie. But he can't do it. Something about her, he just can't. They form a bond that is terribly inconvenient to Christopher, he's a damaged soul who has vowed not to love anyone or anything since he lost his mother in such a horrible way. He is rich beyond calculation, has a fearsome [...]

    13. 1/07/18I’m in a major book funk and have been for awhile so I’ve been rereading some old favorites and decided to revisit Christopher and Millie. I love their story, I highly recommend even if your not a huge historical romance fan (like myself) this series is FAB-U-LAS!! Audio book review:5 Deadly Hero Stars!!Christopher Argent is stone cold and seemingly heartless. The way he grew up and the things he was exposed to and endured in his childhood makes you feel for him…you find yourself gi [...]

    14. *** 3.65 ***A buddy read with the Hysterical Romantic Saps at the MacHalos:):):) This author obviously likes to start with prologues that break your heart, break the main character, and then spends the rest of the book trying to put both of them together It is a very cruel strategy, although it obviously makes for a compelling read. Just as in book one, we are in London of the late 1800's and another boy who grew up in the Newgate Prison as a kid, having lived through unspeakable horrors, has gr [...]

    15. The Highwayman was one of my top reads of 2015, so I was beyond excited when in a conversation where I gushed about it to the author, she offered me an arc copy of The Hunter! My very first arc, and Kerrigan Byrne did not disappoint. She continues to delight me with her beautifully written, passionate romances. The gut-wrenching emotion grabs you right from the prologue. Christopher Argent is every bit the tortured antihero with the tragic past. He is cold and emotionally closed off, but after t [...]

    16. 3.5 StarsI liked the first one much better but this was a good one, too. I love how angsty these books are! I can't wait to read the next one.

    17. After reading The Highwayman, the first book in Kerrigan Byrne’s Victorian Rebels series last year, I knew I had found an author who was willing to push the established boundaries of historical romance with her dark, gritty, compelling stories and dangerous, tormented anti-heroes. The Hunter certainly didn’t disappoint.We were introduced to the mysterious Christopher Argent in The Highwayman. He is Dorian Blackwell’s business associate; a cold, ruthless assassin who kills for money without [...]

    18. I just finished reading the first four books in this series. Of the first four, this is my least favorite I should probably give it a 4 star rating, yet I can't help compare it to the other four books so this one gets a 3. #BadPennyAs with all of Kerrigan Byrne's books in this series, the writing is wonderful and the hero is unapologetically flawed. My issue with this novel was the heroine. She was too perfect. She literally had no faults. As such, I had a hard time connecting with her as the bo [...]

    19. I liked this one even better than The HighwaymanThat ending, holy wow. So emotional. Wonderful, unique author who turns heroes on the verge of losing their souls into men who worship the woman that saves them. Yum.

    20. I've given this a B at AAR.Kerrigan Byrne certainly knows how to open a book with a bang! The prologue to The Hunter (second book in her Victorian Rebels series) is one of the most gripping and emotionally draining things I’ve read in some time. In it, we are introduced to the hero of the novel, Christopher Argent, as a young boy living in Newgate Prison with his mother, a prostitute and thief. Born behind bars, Argent has never been outside the prison walls; but as we are later to learn, his [...]

    21. No lo he disfrutado lo que debiera, por falta total de tiempo (por eso me ha durado tanto) y porque me sigue costando mucho leer en inglés. Pero poco a pocoMuy del estilo del anterior que leí de la autora. Protagonista masculino muy peculiar (asesino a sueldo,sí) atormentado, frío, de esos que terminan derritiéndoseElla de carácter fuerteEn general es una novela bastante previsible, donde los sentimientos de Christopher y su evolución llevan el ritmo de la historia. La autora es muy metic [...]

    22. I really had no idea how good this book might be, I did know a couple of things:1. I tend to dislike historical romance, I am a PNR/UF reviewer mostly with a very few other genres occasionally that I read as a favor usually.2. I am in a forum of readers and last year they ALL were gushing over a book called The Highwayman which after much abuse by them I got a copy and it become one of the best things I read in all of 2015 . historical romance for a straight white guy sounds a bit odd but this r [...]

    23. So listen. I don't really feel like I can be free with my words. I chose to read this book at the same time add two other books, all with fractured our tortured heroes. And this book came on the heels of a Kinsale hero and we all know just how tortured they can be. I'd read another book by this author in a heartbeat. I loved both characters although the tortured hero trope went on and on. Again, my guess is my brain was full of tortuous business, so I'd say I was biased. You should read the book [...]

    24. This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceSummary  Christopher Argent, is one of England's most elite hunters and assassins. He has learned over the years to not care about anything but himself as means of protection. He is cold and he is ruthless and nothing and no one can stand in his way. He has never let a target go unmarked and killed. His latest target, is the beautiful actress Millie LeCour. Their first meeting in a ballroom, where they dance and share a searing kiss chang [...]

    25. This is book two in the "Victorian Rebels" series. I have read book one " The Highwayman" but this book in a standalone book, so you don't have to have read that book to enjoy this one. With that said I must say both theses books are so good I would not miss a one! When I had read the first book I though this series couldn't get any better but than I read this book and knew that this was now my favorite book! This had so much emotional upset and so much feeling that it just took you into the sto [...]

    26. 3.25 ✭So I was a teensy bit disappointed with this one. Just a bit. I loved The Highwayman and The Hunter wasn't quite as good as that one. My expectations were maybe too high?Ms. Byrne can write. She can make you feel. But Hunter got a little wordy. A little too introspective. H and h inner monologue--Repetitive. So story: Christopher is an assassin. He was born in Newgate prison and had, needless to say, a horrible upbringing. It made me cry. He is another tortured Hero that Byrne writes so [...]

    27. I haven't read the previous book in this series, something I intend to remedy ASAP, but I don't think that book is relevant to this story, this is Christopher and Millie's story. Christopher Argent is an assassin for hire, he is hard, cold and impervious to all softer emotions until he is hired to kill Millie. Millie is a famous actress, she lives for the stage and her son Jakub, although she fears danger is stalking them both.I loved Millie, she has worked hard to pull herself out of the London [...]

    28. Thank you to ST. MARTIN’S PRESS and Netgalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.3.5 starsI’m not sure what it is with this series but for some reason, I’m unable to give myself over to it completely. There just seems to be something ‘too’ about it. It’s trying too hard to be intense, and it’s trying too hard to make the men seem badass. The thing is, when your hero is too badass, sometimes it’s hard to buy his soft side when you see it with the he [...]

    29. While I enjoyed this read,I much prefered the 1st book in this series,The Highwayman.My heart went out to Argent for what he had to endure as a child while he was in the prison with his mother.
