BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt of Linda Howard and Linda Jones's Running Wild.
Thirty-two-year-old Angie Powell has always spoken her mind, but in the presence of Dare Callahan she nurses a simmering rage. Three years ago, Dare returned home to rural Montana and opened a hunting business to rival Angie’s own, forcing her to close up shop. The infuriatingly attractive Iraq war vet even had the nerve to ask Angie out, not once but twice. Before Angie leaves town, she organizes one last trip into the wilderness with a client. But the adrenaline-fueled adventure turns deadly when Angie witnesses a cold-blooded murder and finds herself on the wrong side of a gun. Then a bear comes crashing through the woods—changing the dark game completely. Luckily, Dare is camping nearby and comes to her aid. Forced together for survival, Angie and Dare must confront hard feelings, a blinding storm, and a growing attraction—while a desperate killer and a ferocious five-hundred-pound beast stalk their prey.

My assessment and my disappointment stems from the fact that I wanted more interaction between the male and female protagonists.

This is high adventure and non-stop romantic suspense. Leave it to Howard to entertain her readers with male fantasies. PREY is pure satisfaction.

The book is aptly titled on a couple different levels and Ms. Howard once more delivers another suspense-filled read.

Both Angie and Dare likeable enough, it was their love connection that I didn’t buy.

Reviewed by Maggie on Oct 06 2011

With the lack of romance in general it read closer to a psychological thriller than a romantic suspense, of which the former I do not read.
