Such is the dilemma that confronts Tegan when she comes face-to-face with the man that has haunted her dreams and helped her maintain her sanity for the past three years. While every indication points to the fact that Ian is her mate, Tegan isn’t ready to trust another man, not after the last one she gave her heart to cheated on her at every turn. Were that not enough, Tegan has spent the last millennium in eternal suffering in order to maintain the gates of hell, a curse visited on her and her siblings, the hunters of the Wild Hunt. She and her brethren have only recently been released from their torment and some barely maintain their sanity while others are not so lucky. The world without the Wild Hunt has become more and more infested with the evil machinations of the fae and their work is cut out for them if they are to save the humans. Combine this with the manipulations of the gods and deities and life is rather uncertain on just who can be trusted. Every indication is that Ian is not what he appears, a human turned hunter. Nothing explains how they were able to connect in their dreams. But, as the pieces of the puzzle come together it’s very apparent they have been manipulated from the beginning. So, are the feelings they have for one another to be trusted.Read more ›
Ian Callahan has seen her face in his dreams and even though he doesn’t know her name she stirs the hungry beast and the reader can’t help but get pulled into the emotional turbulence that flows from the pages as Ian and Tegan struggle to heal each other and find a way to complete their mating. The chemistry isn’t a problem between these two because its explosive but not even the attraction or a goddess’ manipulations may not be enough to bring this relationship to its destined conclusion when the past, unraveled secrets and father’s wrath causes havoc with it. These strong compelling characters demand readers attentions as the fast paced and smooth flowing plot enthralls readers with lots of suspense, excitement, turmoil and romance.
Anticipation and spine tingling tension builds throughout the story as the time for Tegan to figure out the sacrifice she must make runs out and lots of adrenaline pumping excitement builds as Ian makes a vow that could cost him his soul in order to right a wrong with unexpected twists keeping readers guessing and of course all the danger and mayhem that is caused by the Red Caps with side trip or two to the underworld and inside fairy rings to spice up the excitement even more. The intriguing events draw readers in from the very beginning and ensure that there is never a dull moment to be found in this well written story full of vivid details that bring it all to life.
The Wild Hunt series just keeps getting better and better the more I learn about the Riders and those that created them and they are quite a manipulative bunch so there is never really any way to know exactly what will happen next, of course I can’t wait to find out.
Book 2 in the Wild Hunt series.
Tegan is one of the huntsmen and Ian is human turned into a huntsman who is slowly losing his mind bar his visions of sexy women visiting him in prison. It turns out Tegan and Ian are destined to be. They are a sexy pair and Ian won't give in on his claim for Tegan even if things don't go to plan.
I thought this book was okay, enjoyable and sexy with a good variety of characthers. I just didn't connect with the main characthers that well. The story and twists are good as is the flow of the story.
I did love Arawn, his the one I find most interesting.

First off I have to lead this review by mentioning that I gave this an extra flame, not because there were extra explicit sex scenes, but because this entire book revolved around sex and the need for it. That’s not to say that it’s over done, but I just want to prepare you guys for some serious sexual tension, attention and wowza moments.
Nancy Corrigan has done it again. Whisking us off into a world full of Demigods, Angels, Demons, Fairies and Huntsmen. Is this a stand-alone? Nope. You absolutely need to read the first one to follow this storyline completely. Although there are explanations of “the past” given in case you choose to jump straight to this one.
Ian is the brother of Hartley (from Wild Hunt #1). At the end of the first installment we find out that Ian has succumb to the rage, anger and insanity that can happen with new Hunters. While being held in a cell in Hell, he continues dreaming about the mystery woman he once mentioned to Hartley in the first installment. Can you guess who that mystery woman is? Yep…Tegan, the beautiful Huntress herself.
Tegan has spent a millennium being tortured, killed and mentally abused thanks to the dog on curse her father, Arawn caused. When she and her siblings were freed by Hartley’s love (Wild Hunt #1), she’s forced to attend to the one human that has helped keep her sane for the last 3 years; if only in her dreams. But his past and her past hold too much weight for her to get over. Will Ian’s love he enough?
I will admittedly confess that I didn’t enjoy this installment as much as the first, but that’s not saying much. I still totally loved the storyline. Nancy has set us up with wondering who the next will be about, but I’m putting my money on Rowan. I can’t wait to see if the Demon King gets what he wants or if the human will prevail. Ahhhhhh…..to love.

Hunter Forsaken gives us Ian’s story. We met Ian in Hunter Deceived as he is Harley’s human brother who joined the Hunt in an effort to save her and his fiancé, Cynthia. When the book begins, Ian is locked up because when he was forced to kill Cynthia and failed to save her sister, Allie, he was consumed by rage and none of the other Hunters have been able to reach him. Except for Tegan, one of only two female Hunters who escaped their time in hell with their minds still intact. Tegan is also third in command of the Hunt and trusts no man with her heart because she was betrayed once before. Because of this, even as she is drawn to Ian, she resists him. But when Arawn threatens to withdraw the mark of the Hunt, she has no choice but to go to him.
Much like Hunter Deceived, there is a ton of action in this installment. As the Hunters continue their fight against the Unseelie fae, Craig, one of the redcaps responsible for Harley’s troubles and Allie’s disappearance, comes front and center once Tegan’s presence calms Ian’s rage. It’s as if Craig knows that Ian will be searching for Allie, and when Ian and Trevor finally get a lead on a fairy circle, they arrive in the nick of time for a botched rescue attempt. But wait, I’m getting ahead of myself here because the first chunk of the book is Tegan denying Ian as her mate, refusing to accept that he’ll be any different from Bjorn (the man who broke her heart), and trying to discover what it is that Minerva is up to. Oh yes, the games are afoot as the goddess of love holds the secret as to why Ian and Tegan have been dream sharing, and just who – or what – Ian really is. You read that right. Once Tegan finally gives into her attraction to Ian, she becomes aware in the most pleasurable and painful of ways that he’s not as human as they all believed him to be, including Ian himself. Tegan often has to make life and death decisions and knowledge of Ian’s true heritage puts her decision-making to the test more than once. Can she trust Ian with her heart? To be faithful to her? And can she save herself from the Triad’s curse?
What I enjoyed about this installment is that even as Tegan resisted her love for Ian and eventually lost that battle, the series thread continues to develop. Once Ian’s parentage is revealed and Minerva shares what she knows, it becomes obvious that there are much larger plans in play regarding the members of the Hunt. While Harley and Calan’s sacrifice may have freed the members of the Hunt, each member will have to make a sacrifice to save themselves from the Triad’s curse. Even as questions were answered, the end of Hunter Forsaken left many questions unanswered, which insured that I will be on the lookout for the next book in the Wild Hunt series because not only do I need those answer, but I have to know what’s behind Rowan’s strong reaction regarding Trevor.
Corrigan’s unique take on the wild hunt was a fantastic backdrop for this intriguing novel. It opens readers up to a myriad of new concepts and possibilities. The well-developed history and mythology behind it provided context for the increasingly captivating plot.
I loved the power dynamic between Ian and Tegan. The way that it was constantly shifting to suit the situation created a couple that you could really see lasting for millennia. The chemistry between them was off the charts. The way that Corrigan developed their relationship both physically and emotionally created a whole that not only left the pages sizzling, but also tugged at my heart. Minerva’s character also became very intriguing to me. Her secrets begin to come out, creating another character that I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know better.
Corrigan has created an unforgettable novel that is a brilliant addition to the series. The build-up of the backstory of the Wild Hunt was just as captivating as the erotically charged relationship between Ian and Tegan set the pages on fire.

Years ago, all of his family except Ian and his sister, Harley were brutally murdered by the Slaugh. He has spent the intervening years hunting the fae, burning their fairy rings and living the life of a two man army of retribution with his best friend Trevor. His dreams were filled with erotic fantasies of one woman. As much as he hungered for satisfaction and craved sex, no woman, in reality, could hold his interests. Not even his fiancée . Considering she had no intention of giving up her virginity it seemed a perfect match. That is until she came to the attention of the Slaugh. Then when things became dire, he was invited to join the ranks of the Huntsmen. His fiancée was killed and now his world is out of control. He has powers he can’t get a handle on. He’s on the verge of losing it and his one hope is Tegan, the woman he has fallen hopelessly in love with. The only problem is she isn’t jumping up and down to be with him. Now he’s finding out that life as he knows it has all been a charade. His origins are a mystery and finding out the answer could spell the doom to any hopes he has with Tegan. No matter, this is one man that no matter the temptation will remain steadfast and true.
If Tegan and Ian didn’t have enough challenges, they are fighting a ticking time bomb when it comes to the curse Tegan lives with. She has a limited time to discover the cure to her curse that could see her living a life of endless torment and every time she takes a step forward it seems to knock her back two. Hunter Forsaken is full of all the action and adventure you could want. The chemistry between Tegan and Ian is off the charts hot. It’s an emotional roller coaster ride that I thoroughly enjoyed. Call me nuts, but I really like a book that has me cursing at nameless entities and their vagaries. If you are looking for an outstanding paranormal romantic fantasy series then the Wild Hunt delivers.
