Duke is a shape-shifter who was betrayed by Ana 5 years back when Ana and Duke had first met. Duke is a hunter, a part of an elite group who all have special powers. Some of them are vampires, others werewolves with a couple of witches thrown into the mix with shape-shifters as well. Ana is a psychic who had to use her ability to save her younger brother from the clutches of a sadistic vampire by luring Duke in. Duke had never forgiven or forgotten the fact that Ana had almost cost him his life. Going out of his way to avoid Ana is the hardest thing Duke has ever had to do since he still wants her like crazy.
Ana can't help but want Duke as well. But knowing that Duke despises the very ground she walks on finally takes its toll on Ana and she leaves the Hunter's school and moves to Alaska to settle down. A year on, Ana has a job and a place to call home, together with a nagging feeling that there is something horribly wrong or evil lurking around the mountains that surround the city. This feeling intensifies when Ana finds out that girls have been going missing, some of them turning up dead, others never to be found. And all the girls bare a strong resemblance to the first girl Marie that went missing, whose murder was at first blamed on her fiance' Paul, who now lurks on the streets mumbling and muttering to himself.
Ana knowing that she wouldn't be able to handle whatever evil that lurked around, calls in the Hunters for help. Duke who had been growing ever so restless since Ana left, is the one to pick up the call and eventually the one to head to Alaska to figure out whats got Ana so riled up. From the moment these two see each other, its all sparks and high powered jolts of lust between the two.
As these two team up to find out the source of evil who has killed dozens of young girls, the ghosts of these young women tend to haunt the two and eventually end up helping Ana to identify the killer who turns out to be much too close to comfort to the first victim.
All in all, great romance, a pine tingling mystery and a yummy shape-shifter with whom a gal can never go wrong!

Ana Morell is a complex character; when readers were first introduced to her in "Hunting the Hunter", (book 7), her actions lead to the suffering of others, including Duke Lawson. When the heroes of that book rescued Duke, they also saved Ana and her brother Brad, and drew them into the world of the Hunters. Ana views her new world in black and white; the good guys, including the Hunters, are powerful, fearless, heroes, whose actions meet the highest moral standards. Using such criteria she is unable to see her own strengths, and can't forgive her past.
Duke Lawson has been drawn to Ana since the beginning; it's strong, it's inexplicable, and it lead to his torture at the hands of a psychotic vampire. He has needed time to heal, both physically and mentally. When Ana needs help however, Duke must answer his Hunter's call, and they are soon working together to solve a 30-year-old mystery.
Walker does not take the easy way out of Ana's problems and doubts. Her powers don't suddenly metamorph into an offensive weapon, absolution doesn't exist, and love doesn't solve all. Instead, as Duke and Ana struggle to find a killer, Ana must learn to see that the world actually exists in shades of gray, for both Hunter and non-Hunter alike. Watching their development throughout the story is a pleasure.
The mystery is engaging and will keep you wondering, however it would have been even better if it were a bit more developed. Overall, I thought it was more realistic than many mysteries I've read (how often do you write that about a book involving a shape-shifter and a psychic?); the clues aren't just sitting there for them to find, and the answer comes more by accident than design. Perhaps because of that, the end to the mystery comes a bit abruptly. It is resolved in such a satisfying manner, though, that you won't mind.
Duke and Ana, like many of Walker's characters don't fit the typical romance mold, and they are all the more interesting for it. "Hunter's Need" was an excellent read and I can't wait to see what comes next.
