HOT PURSUIT by Julie Ann Walker is the eleventh book in the
Black Knights Book Series. I fell in love with this series
from book one. Every time I read the newest book, I
immediately look forward to the next book. The main
characters are Emily and Christian. Emily is an ex-CIA Agent
who was born and raised in Chicago. She is extremely
intelligent, very well organized and extremely witty. She
also has her mind set to not mix business with pleasure.
Christian is an ex-SAS Agent from across the pond. He is
super sexy with a stiff upper lip, very well dressed and a
hidden desire for Emily. He has a rule of never talking
about his past just like any other operative from the BKI.
Together they are hiding out until they can make it back to
Chicago. Everything is going as planned until they get
caught. This is where Walker's writing truly shines and the
suspense builds. Combine the complete unknown around the
next corner with a hidden desire for romance between the two
and you have an explosive story that is sure to leave you
wanting more. Walker uses the setting and character
backstories to create a very hot and steamy read with just
enough suspense to make you second guess what is about to
happen. This book is a part of a series but can be read as a
stand-alone. I feel that reading the previous novels helped
me to better understand the complexity of the story and the
desire shared between Emily and Christian.
Again, I feel you can still read this even if you have not
read any of the other books in this series. I was drawn into
the story from the first chapter and the more I read the
more I wanted to know how this was going to end. Walker is
an amazing writer that creates stories where you feel you
are a part of the action, right there in the middle of it
all. Overall, an outstanding read that I highly recommend to
anyone loves a good romantic suspense novel!
Christian Watson, a former SAS officer and current BKI
operator, never thought he would return to England after a
terrible turn of events forced him to abandon his homeland.
But now he's back on British soil where old enemies are
determined to do him in. Fighting for his life is pretty
much SOP for Christian. Doing it with the beautiful, bossy
Emily Scott in tow is another matter entirely.
In hot pursuit.
Emily lost her coveted job at the CIA because of a colleague
turned rogue, and now she has just one rule when it comes to
men: they're for recreational purposes only. But when she
and Christian are thrust into very close quarters while
evading two mysterious men who want Christian dead, she
can't help but question all her ideas about love and life
lived on the edge. Battling the bad guys is hard enough,
battling her feelings for Christian just might prove impossible.
