Publisher's Summary

Paul Grove finds love in the beautiful alien woman who takes his breath away. For the first time since his wife died, Paul wants someone of his own to hold. When a madman threatens his new family and takes the woman he is determined to claim, he will use all of his skills in hunting, tracking, and guerilla warfare to get her safely back by his side.
Morian Reykill discovers that the alien male who has claimed her is the true mate she has always hoped of having but thought an impossible dream. Will she be able to save him before a powerful enemy kills him as he did her first mate...or will she lose not only her true mate but her entire family? She is willing to sacrifice anything to protect them. What she does not know is that Paul is the ultimate predator when his family is in danger: when he is in pursuit of an enemy, his prey never gets away.

what an inventive imagination

Would you consider the audio edition of Paul's Pursuit to be better than the print version?

Susan has built so many world's I'm wounder-struck by her imagination.I have All of her books and by all I mean ALL of her books. They are quick reads that keep you in your seat wanting more.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Paul is such a strong character and he fits right in with the Valdear he has that heightened seance of possession, you know when he say's "Mine" he means it. He's smart and personable and fit's right in with everyone else and teaches them what they need to know to win.


What about David Brenin’s performance did you like?

David is wonderful with these characters It's odd though I have always been of the mind if the books main character is female the narrator should be as well. He's doing a great job with these books


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Try to hurt what's mine, you gotta go through me then you can feel the pain

I was so excited for this story...

I was very excited for this book, maybe too excited. It wasn't exactly what I expected, a very good read but not where I thought things were headed. It just felt like Morian wasn't exactly as spunky as she could be, I wanted more of her fire. Her dragon annoyed be much of the time, she just did not have the spark that her sons had in previous books.

I really liked the way the story brought us to where Paul was and what happened to him while the girls were missing. It helped to get to know him better and see his thoughts, which were more telling than Trisha's memories. He has a whole core of strength and loyalty to family. You see how he is a perfect match for Morian and her sons!

The story here is mixed narrative as usual, you get the leads thoughts as well as supporting. The supporting POV are a bit jumpy and random. It makes things feel choppy. I wish these were better managed, because they take you out of the stories. It is a great way to keep the reader on the inside of what is happening, I just wish it were more consistent with the supporting cast thoughts.

The steam factor is delicious as always! Some seriously yummy smexy scenes that will scorch you to the core. Oh my yes, this is an extremely hawt read! Be prepared for a break when things get sexy, cause they are delightfully detailed.

This moves us into the battle with the big bad and finally a resolution to that issue. The uncle is seriously deranged! It was also interesting to get more of Morian's backstory and role as a priestess. I kind of wish we could have had a bit more on her adventures as a youth. She was a real character who would have fun to read more about. What we did see showed her to be more than the sage matriarch we have come to know.

The audiobook narrated by David Brenin is a scrumptious feast for your ears. I am never disappointed in his reads, always delightful listen. He has a yummy rumble to his voice that catches all the masculine characters alpha tones. His feminine voices have just enough of a touch to make them realistic. Usually I listen to reads at double speed, not in this case. I like to listen to his reads at regular pace, because they are quick enough and I like to savor the time I have with him reading to me.

Even though this is kind of the end, it is also far from it. There are several side characters who have books to tell their stories. I expect they will cover a few events we already witnessed. It will be interesting to see how those stories layer with the ones we know.
