Image of The Hunt

Marsh quickly draws you in and then shoots you down a dark and twisty tunnel full of sex, cats, Egyptian lore and some creative worldbuilding. With so much going on, the action is confusing
at times, but the pace keeps the reader motivated to find out what's going to happen next. The relationship between the heroine and her sexy guardian cat isn't deep, but it's enough to be interesting and entertaining.

Miu is a woman on a mission. Actually, she has to pretend she's a virgin, evade the sex-hungry guardian cats, find her way through the maze of tunnels in the Temple of Amun Ra and steal a necklace from a crypt. All to save her sister and keep a promise to her employer, Lierr. What she doesn't count on is being hunted by Jafar, a Guardian, who has decided she's going to be his mate.

Jafar knows Miu is trouble the moment he sees her, and you'd think with his past mistakes he'd avoid her, but something about Miu compels him to find out more. When he discovers she's a thief, he must decide whether to follow his heart and do what feels right, which means risking his life, or follow the rules he was created to uphold.
