Hunters are a lonely breed, and Conor’s no exception, until the day he meets Brenna. Even though she slinks in unannounced and kills the wight he was hunting down, the girl’s a mystery and he can’t get that blinding smile or those gorgeous curves off his mind. Since they’re both after the same caster who’s unleashing these monsters, he suggests teaming up, and despite her initial reluctance, the hungry way she scans him down promises something powerful.

However, her secrets have repercussions, and faster than Conor can lift his Glock, he’s drawn into the web of kidnappings and Unseelie mischief, all concealing the machinations of a darker foe—one that plans to bring Philly to ruin.


Review: I once again found a new author. I have fallen in love with Ms. McIntyre’s world. She writes about a world within a world that is very easy to understand and follow. It was a world that I found very easy to lose myself in while having fun reading about new and old magical beings. I loved how she blended the magical beings we are used to in stories with some new ones that fit while adding a whole new dimension to the magical world. From the witches, the hunters, the mantacors, the faries and sprites to name a few to the new breed of Unseelie and wights, I couldn’t put this story down because I wanted to keep reading I didn’t want it to end.

Sparks fly literally for Conor and Brenna when they first meet and it doesn’t stop. This lonely hunter has a soft spot; not only for half-breeds but also dogs. From the moment they met things didn’t seem as if they had a chance to become a couple but despite what they were up against the sparks and passion was so hot they smoldered and you knew they were going to survive.

The characters whether they were major or minor were very likable and easy to relate to. I liked Conor because he was supposed to be this tough guy hunter yet he had a soft spot for those in need of help. Don’t get me wrong he was tough when he needed to be. Brenna was easy enough to like even with her rough, tough girl attitude. After all in the world Ms. McIntyre created you can’t be a softie. You have to have an edge. I would have liked to learn more of Jev. She seemed like a person I would want to hang out with. Conor’s father was even a bit likable with his gruff play it by the book attitude.

Ms. McIntyre wrote her scenes with such vivid descriptions that I was not only able to visualize what she was portraying but I also could smell the burning flesh, sense the danger all around, feel the pain… I think you get my drift. I could even see the mantacor shooting the poison from the end of his tail, the fire as Brenna expelled it to kill the enemy.

I simply enjoyed this book with the way Ms. McIntyre kept your interest with her well written characters and story line. I can’t wait to read more from this author.  If you like something a little different with a natural blend of everyday magics with exciting and interesting new ones you might just want to try Ms. McIntyre’s world.  So grab Hunting for Spring and settle in for an adventure into a new world of magic.
