What began as a chance encounter in a museum for Daniel Hart and Rhys Daveth blossomed, sometimes painfully, into a romance that spanned continents, endured secrets and defied danger. The pair of men couldn't be more different; one a scholar, dedicated to preserving the past, and the other a shape-shifting thief bent on stealing history for his own gain. Their road togethe ...more

Wow, what an adventure! I'm glad I read all three in one book because stopping at any point would have been frustrating. Rhys (Reese) was not a likable character at first. He came across like some kind of smooth, icky playboy even though he did have the smexing moves down. And Daniel (Danny), what a nice guy. A normal, kind of geeky museum helper working on his doctorate. I just picture him with glasses and perfectly pressed khakis. Reese had his number from the start and didn't hesitate to use ...more

This was good. It started off in one direction, and then switched gears.
This was broken into 3 parts. Each part took a different direction.

The first portion, I was hooked from the get go. I didn't really like Rhys to much at that point. He was to smooth, rich, and a little coincided. But I did still like them as a couple. You knew what the betrayal was going to be, and was braced for it, but it still sucked when it happened.

The second portion Rhys was more likable.
I started this book almost a MONTH ago, I don't know if I should even try and blame the book for the fact until yesterday I only read 14% (!) of it.. (the rest I actually finished in one evening) Truthfully I had ZERO time! But one thing I can't deny.. Both Daniel and Reese weren't my favorite characters. Took me long enough for them to "grow on me" I guess.

The world Daniel Hart lives in contains magical abilities and though Daniel isn't a very talented spell caster he has found his calling wor

Pursued is the collection of 3 novellas (Treasured, Shadowed and Reclaimed). I am not sure if rating each novella individually they would have all received 5 stars but, read all at once, the overall feeling I have is that Pursued is a 5 star read.

I really enjoyed this action/adventure series that included some hot,smexy romance! It was well written and definitely a page-turner. The plot was exciting and there was a crazy-ass villain in the final story that made my skin crawl. The main character

This book sucked me in from page one. It was intriguing, hot, and really fun to read. I am really glad I got to read it as one collection because waiting in between installments would have killed me! The touches of magic were engaging and the whole theory of Rhys (Reese) was fascinating. But the heat.... Whoa! Especially (view spoiler) When I finished, I blinked b ...more
3,5 Stars

My feelings about this book are really mixed. This full story is composed of three short stories. The first part let me annoyed by Daniel's behavior: (view spoiler). The second part is better with this kidnapping in Venise and some action. The third one recapitulate the two previous parts and ends with a better morality than the first part.

I picked this book up as a recommendation for the Scavenger Hunt Challenge. It's devided in three parts and I have to say that this aspect makes it very hard to rate the book. The first two parts were terribly boring to me; I didn't like the characters and the idea of doppelganger shifters. Only the third part was ok, I liked the paranormal interaction between the characters. That's why I'm rating the book with 2 stars!

4.5 stars

A lovely read. The first portion of the story Treasured didn't really paint Rhys is a very likable character sort of way for me. I kind of hated him for using Danny. Even more so I hated that Danny allowed him to do so. The other two parts helped change my mind about it though and in the end I really enjoyed the story. The plots were intriguing and the story flowed really well.

Lovely read...could not put it down; it just pulled me in and swallowed me whole :))

This was an interesting book. Each of the first two books end on a uncertain note without anything really being accomplished. This is really one book separated into parts that was originally sold as multiple pieces. There were things that bothered me but usually they were rectified by later in the book. There was great action, danger, peril, conflict, thrills and chills, etc., totally up my alley.

Well, didn't everything progress rather quickly. Not that that is a complaint. This read was fast paced, entertaining, and hot.

I liked Danny and Rhys from the beginning; I couldn't help but adore Danny for his kindness and strength of character, Rhys I found simply charming and confident (but without the sleaziness or arrogance), there was that one moment when he was a jerk but I still couldn't bring myself to be angry at him for long. I also found myself wanting to know a little more about Dan

This was one of those books I had picked up because it sounded interesting then forgot about. I read it as it fitted a challenge and I am glad I did. It was a fun interesting read.

Daniel is a Doctorate student working at a museum there he meets Rhys who has a much more interesting career as a thief. Despite a rough start the two of them develop a relationship and go to Venice together. Here Rhys's past catches up with him and things get more complicated for the pair.

Although it is a
An entertaining read. I'm glad I read the collection of all three stories together, otherwise I would have been terribly annoyed with the characters after the first book, and never have read the following sequels. For the following sequels brought redemption, a realization of their amoral doings and righting the wrongs.

I loved the travel and descriptions of their adventures in Venice. Action, suspense, lots of stuff to keep me entertained. I did find the book lacking in any descriptions or ackn
I don’t really know what to say. Again it was only okay. I liked the adventure aspect. There wasn’t a lot of magic and that sort of bummed me out. Although, I did have to say it took me a while to get into the story. It was a bit boring at first.

This book was definitely a fun read, but I don't think it's a 4 or 5 stars for me only because the three part novella's didn't have natural stoppage points. Which annoyed me to no end since I don't really read books in one sitting anymore.
