But a hunter, a good hunter, possessed patience. He trusted his gut, and he always knew the mind of his prey.
Twelve years ago, Sarah Baker was abducted by the Watt Lake Killer and sexually assaulted for months before managing to escape. The killer was caught, but Sarah lost everything: her marriage, her child, and the life she loved.
Struggling with PTSD, Sarah changes her name to Olivia West and finds sanctuary working on Broken Bar Ranch. But as her scars finally begin to heal, a cop involved with her horrific case remains convinced the Watt Lake Killer is still out there. He sets a lure for the murderer, and a fresh body is discovered. Now Olivia must face the impossible—could the butcher be back, this time to finish the job?
As a frigid winter isolates the ranch, only one person can help Olivia: Cole McDonough, a writer, adventurer, and ranch heir who stirs long-dormant feelings in her. But this time, Olivia’s determination to shut out her past may destroy more than her chance at love. It could cost her her life.
Loreth Anne White had me from the beginning, at times I was on the edge of my seat.
A Dark Lure is written from the perspective of a few characters, which adds layers of intrigue. The scenery in the book is written perfectly that it is easily pictured in your minds eye, I was able to feel the characters surroundings and emotions. It is a romance suspense, with the abduction of Sarah there will be sexual and violent scenes. It is a predictable storyline, that doesn't make it less enjoyable. With the characters being so frustrating, strong-willed, determined, loving and downright psychotic, it makes for a suspenseful read.
...It's not a game until both sides know they're playing...
