A Hunted Man
(The Men of Halfway House #2)
After surviving ten years in prison, Cameron Pierce is attempting to put the past behind him. He tries to adjust to his newfound freedom with a place at the halfway house and a job. But one lesson he learned in prison keeps him guarded: hope is a dangerous thing.
Hunter Donovan, Assistant State Attorney, is a man of justice who loves a challenge. After a lifetime of putting his career first, a milestone brings him to a harsh realization—he’s lonely.
Hunter’s world changes when he meets Cam. The wary young man intrigues him and awakens a desire unlike anything he’s ever experienced. When Cam’s past resurfaces and threatens to rip them apart, their budding relationship is challenged and Cam’s hope for a future begins to dim.
These outside forces hunting Cam will stop at nothing to send him back to prison. But they’ll have to get past Hunter first.

His body, although still lean, was tighter and a little broader from the yard work at the halfway house. A slight tan colored his skin now, the faint golden tone further accentuating the blue in his eyes and the white of his smile. His hair had a sprinkling of highlights as if the sun had kissed his head. Sunrises gave him hope, but they also seemed to awaken a natural physical beauty that had been hidden for far too long.
“How can I help you? Sir,” Cam said when it was finally Hunter’s turn at the register.
Hunter leaned over the counter. “You know that drives me nuts.”
Cam smiled and grabbed Hunter’s tie to pull him closer. “I know.” After a quick peck, Cam released him.
Hunter reached over and rubbed Cam’s stubble. “Are you letting this grow out?”
Cam shrugged. He looked away and scratched his growing scruff. “It makes me look older.”
“Since when do you want to look older?”
Cam shrugged again and fidgeted with the receipts.
Realization finally hit Hunter. He grabbed Cam’s chin and forced him to make eye contact. “Are you doing that for me?”
Cam’s mouth narrowed and his brows lowered. “There’s not much I can do for you. So if growing some hair on my face will make you feel a little less self-conscious, then I’ll grow a full fucking beard if I have to.”
“I read romance to see the incremental journey two people make in their relationship and that’s what I got with Cameron and Hunter. I could feel their loneliness and their attraction for each other.“ ~J9, The Book Vixen, Selected as a TOP PICK for May 2014
“There was mystery-murder, characters that you can relate to and a book that leaves a silly, happy grin on your face after reading. A true tour de force of M/M romance.“ ~ Mark, Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews, Selected as an APRIL 2014 HOTPICK
