5/5 Star Review of Heart of the Hunter by @Lara_Adrian (Tina St. John)

Ariana of Clairmont would risk anything to save her kidnapped brother, a quest she knows is fraught with peril. Her only ally is Braedon le Chasseur, a formidable knight with a mysterious past, whose scarred face and brooding nature mask a soul filled with pain. Ariana fears this dangerous man and the secrets he strives to conceal—but Braedon’s touch is pure seduction, his kiss a potent lure that tempts her into a passion she is powerless to resist.

Once known as The Hunter, now haunted by a dark legacy he struggles to deny, Braedon lives in a world of shadow and isolation—until he is thrust together with an innocent beauty in need of his protection. Embarking on a journey that will lead them to a legendary treasure, Braedon will be forced to confront old enemies and the stunning secret of his true nature—or risk losing Ariana and the only happiness he has ever known. . .

Taken from Goodreads


I’ve never been interested in reading Historical Romance, but when Lara Adrian released this series – Dragon Chalice – again that she’d written as Tina St. John, I downloaded it immediately. I’ve loved all her work and I certainly wasn’t disappointed with Heart of the Hunter. As I read, I experienced such a wide range of emotions that I found it hard to put the book down. If my body would have allowed it, I would have gladly given up sleep to keep reading.

During the journey that Ariana and Braedon are fated to take to save her brother, Braedon must face his past and the realization that this stubborn woman has not only convinced him to help her, but has wedged her way into his heart. This is an exciting tale of action packed adventure along with a sensual relationship between Braedon and Ariana and the beauty of two hearts finding each other.  Adrian does a fabulous job of keeping the excitement of the story moving along, while building the relationship between Braedon and Ariana in a way that causes us to hope that in the end they will be together.  The innocent Ariana captures the pained heart of Braedon and Adrian does such an amazing job of allowing us to feel what both the hero and the heroine are feeling!

I truly, truly enjoyed reading this story and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series!  I definitely highly recommend Heart of the Hunter!  I am giving this a 5 out of 5 Stars!
