Virtual Blog Tour for The Hunter by Kerrigan Byrne

They're rebels, scoundrels, and blackguards-dark, dashing men on the wrong side of the law. But for the women who love them, a hint of danger only makes the heart beat faster...
A scandalous proposal.
Christopher Argent lives in the shadows as the empire's most elite assassin. Emotion is something he tossed away years ago, making him one of the most clear-eyed, cold-hearted, wealthiest, and therefore untouchable men in London. But when his latest target turns out to be London's own darling, Millicent LeCour, Christopher's whole world is turned upside down. Overwhelmed by her stunning combination of seduction and innocence, Christopher cannot complete the mission. She has made him feel again. Now, he will do anything to save her life, so that he can claim her as his own...
A perilous passion...
When Millie learns what Christopher was hired to do, she is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this notorious hunter's arms may be her only path to safety-even if doing so could be the deadliest mistake she's ever made. But how can she resist him? As the heat between her and Christopher burns out of control, danger lurks in the shadows. Is their desire worth the risk? Only the enemy knows what fate has in store..

Author Bio:
Kerrigan has done many things to pay the bills, from law enforcement to belly dance instructor. Now she's finally able to have the career she'd decided upon at thirteen when she announced to her very skeptical family that she was going to "grow up to be a romance novelist." Whether she's writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in almost every story.
Her first novel with St. Martin's Press, THE HIGHWAYMAN, is available now and will be followed by THE HUNTER in February of 2016.
She lives at the base of the Rocky Mountains with her handsome husband and three lovely teenage girls, but dreams of settling on the Pacific Coast.

The second book in the Victorian Rebel Series was an edge of your seat kind of read.  Christopher Argent was born and grew up in Newgate Prison .  He watched his mother sacrifice her body to the guards so that he could have a blanket or an extra piece of bread.  Until one night one of the cruelest guards let some vile male prisoners into their cell and raped, beat and cut his mother.  He held her dead bojdy and screamed all through the night calling for help that would never come.  That was the night that he lost his soul and vowed vengenance on all that had abused his mother.

Years later he is a assassin for hire.  He will kill anyone for a price and is ruthless.  He thinks of himself as an empty shell, a monster who has nothing and no one to care whether he lives or dies.  He accepts a contract ot kill an actress, he doesn;t know her and could care less why she has to die.  Millicent LeCour is an up and coming actress with a young son who is making her way in the world on her own.  When she first meets Christopher she thinks he is interested in her and there is something about him that fascinates her.  She accepts an inviatation to dance and then he leads her to a dark corner under a staircase to kill her and she thinks he is going to kiss her.  He is shocked to feel drawn to her and kisses her instead of strangling her.

This starts a journey that will test them both.  Millie is strong, determined and very protective of her son. Christopher cannot seem to kill her and makes a bargain to protect her from the person who wants her dead if she will have sex with him.

This book was amazing in so many ways.  Christopher is truly a man shaped by his experiences.  He doesn;t have friends or family and does not know what he is missing because he has never had anyone to care about him since his mother died.  Millie is hiding a secret that could get her and her son killed. This is truly a story about a love for the ages and a redemption of a man who was a victim of unspeakable violence and abuse. You have to read this book.  I admit I cried at the end, but oh was it worth it!!!
