The Haunted and the Hunted

Teresa Reitnauer

Xlibris, 113 pages, (paperback) $19.99, 9781524531324

(Reviewed: March, 2017)

Sparks fly when a relentlessly stalked author and a vet crippled by PTSD find shelter together in a secluded cabin in this well-plotted and engaging romantic suspense novel.

Writer Rachael finds her life upended when a mentally unbalanced book clerk begins pursuing her, starting with silent phone calls and flowers at her doorstep and then escalating into destructive acts. Elsewhere, Randall, a Marine discharged after a roadside bomb in Afghanistan wounds him physically and mentally, grapples with how to get a grip on life stateside.

Through a twist of fate, Rachael and Randall end up at the cabin together—she to escape the stalker and he to find himself while offering some protection for Rachael. As their attraction for one another grows, the stalker continues his pursuit, determined to claim ownership of the woman he considers his “soul mate.”

This fast-paced, carefully crafted book delivers deftly written dialogue. In addition, it successfully builds a strong plot around steamy, intimate sex scenes between its likable protagonists. However, while the details of Randall’s vulnerability make him richly alive, Rachael’s personality is somewhat flatter. Some standout quirks would help round out her character, as would the exhibition of more palpable fears of the stalker.

The stalker, developed through short “thought dialogue” paragraphs written in italics throughout, arises as a sinister and haunting figure. Still, this character could benefit from added traits that more deeply develop his personality and details that visually follow his secretive movements. His actions at the climax also could use more depth of intensity.

While a build-up of the above-mentioned details would enhance the story, overall, the novel’s strengths far override the limitations of some of its characterizations. This is an inventive and absorbing book, sure to please many fans of romantic suspense.

Also available in hardcover and ebook.

Recommended Books

I have read two books this week that really stand out for me.

The first is Power Play by Maria Luis.  It is entertaining and funny at the beginning, but has its serious moments. The characters Charlie (Charlene) Denton and Duke Harrison really bond together in this book. Yes, they have their ups and downs. but I loved the book. Maria Luis knows how to bring her characters to life. I received an advance copy for a honest review. The book comes out April 13th.

The second is Forbidden Dance by Deanna Roy. A well written book. The female character, Livia, is a sheltered 21 year old that breaks out of her shell with the help of her male counterpart Blitz Craven (Benjamin). I reviewed it on Amazon and here is the link:

I would read any book written by these two authors again.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone has a safe New Year’s Eve. I took a hiatus from writing, but starting strong on the new year. I am finishing one book and in the middle of another. They belong to a 3 book series involving the Lewis Security Agency, that was introduced in my first book. Keep a check and I will let you know when the books are going to be released.

Happy New Year.
