Hi Brianna,
Thanks for your question.
No, it's not necessary to re-read book 1. It has been expanded with a few additional scenes, but the overall story is the same. You should be fine moving on to book 2! I would, however, recommend reading the prequel, Hunter Sacrificed, if you haven't already. It's a free book available just about everywhere.
Here's the page on my website that lists some of the links: http://www.nancycorriganauthor.com/hu...
Thanks for reading!

The night her world became a deadly nightmare, Harley saw the creatures of darkness and she ran while hearing a comforting and powerful voice calling her. That voice belonged to the most compelling eyes she had ever seen, yes, just eyes, the imaginings of a girl desperate for safety or a vision of a being from another world? Harley is part human and part Unseelie, the daughter of the Unseelie King. She has strived to do good, be good, but the years and the hiding are taking their toll as she fee ...more

Clearly not a book interested in a plot, but in sexual situation and romance, or what pass as it in some books. By chap 4 the 2 have met once, but the sexual innuendo or thoughts are fully frontal. By chap 5 she masturbates thinking about him (the same guy she met once, and doesn't really trust). The setting is potential destruction of human world, her life on the balance, and her humaneness too. Believable. Sigh

Here I DNFed. Boring, and downright stupid in my personal ledger. :O

Harley has been tormented by eyes of a “ghostly man” for 9 years, 9 years! She had made him a promise to live and return to him, but she didn’t really understand what those words meant as she was trying to escape the killer of her family. But true to her word, she lived, all while watching those who bec

For a millennium, Calan leader of the Wild Hunt has sacrificed to ensure the horrid creatures remain in the Underworld, but now he’s strength is waning and he must rely on his enemy’s daughter, Harley to save him and hopefully save her from the evil that taints her as well in this mesmerizing paranormal romance. The author has taken an intriguing myth and added her own unique elements to make for a very bewitching and sensational world with captivating characters. There was never a dull moment a ...more

Hunter Betrayed is book one in the Wild Hunt series by Nancy Corrigan. It grabbed me right from the start and kept me entertained. We get action, wonderful steamy scenes and an fascinating plot. Lots of fabulous supernatural creatures from dark fairies, demons, and all kinds of beings of the Underworld including it’s Lord.

I have read quite a few books involving Gods, Goddesses, and even a couple involving the hunt, but I have never read one where the love interest WAS the hunt. For me that set it apart. I admit I was expecting something far different from what I got! Her idea of the Hunt is very interesting and I would love to read more.

We meet Calan, eldest of the Huntsmen in the past as he is fighting to save a baby from being sacrificed to open the doorway to hell. He and his brothers and sisters save the baby

A super steamy and enjoyable paranormal romance, Hunter Betrayed was a wonderful read. From the hot romance, to the threat of the dark faeries, this book was great.

Harley and Calan were both great. Harley was tough, clever, and determined to do whatever she could to save, not only her loved ones, but any innocent caught in the battle. Calan was loyal to those he cared about and a very honorable man who was devoted to his duty as a protector of humans. They were both wonderful and likable charact

Hunter Deceived by Nancy Corrigan is a fast-paced interesting story about Fae that takes place in a modern setting. Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, has been imprisoned by Dar, the ruler of the Unseelie Court, and unable to protect the humans from their wrath. He needs the help of Dar’s half-breed daughter, Harley, to release him. He falls in love with her, and both will need to make sacrifices to save themselves and the world.

Favorite Quotes:
He sagged in his bonds and dragged in a shuddering breath.
Why do you insist on sharing our suffering when you do not need to?
Rhys asked the same question every time they spoke. Calan gave his usual answer. Because it is my punishment, my hell and my sin for condemning you. I would bear it all if I could.
Rhys sighed. You did not know what would happen any more than I did. I would have done the same.
Calan’s next words would’ve been, No, brother, you would’ve saved us all. He co

With this first book in her Wild Hunt series Ms. Corrigan has crafted a sensual and action-packed read with an intriguing mythos of good and evil. In this world it's the Huntsmen, the Devil's offspring, who protect humanity from bloodthirsty fairies. It's an exhilarating ride full of erotic encounters and unexpected heroes where all is not as it seems. When these two worlds collide in the name of love great sacrifices will have to be made before the Huntsmen are driven insane and the barrier fal ...more

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Although I have read several series that are based on Fae legends, Corrigan managed to give Hunter Deceived some twists that I haven’t encountered before. Because of this, I found myself further engrossed in the book because while there are certain Fae rules that are a constant from author to author – they are based on legends, after all – it was the differences between the Seelie and Unseelie that the author made her own th

Hunter Betrayed was an amazing read. I was really surprised by this book. From the very beginning it captured my attention and I was completely swept up in this story. There is one thing about this story that I overlooked for a while because of how good it was. This is a major detail of a book, and this book was written so well with such wonderful detail that I never even noticed...it's written in third person! I can honestly say that I don

Nancy has brought us yet another swoon worthy hero to lust after and dream about, and I think he is my favourite. Calan.....a heroic fighter who has saved the human race for centuries...um yummy!!!!!!

Harley knew she was different from the beginning, her mother locks her away from the world trying to keep her safe, she does not know what her mother is keeping her safe from until one night in her teens and she witnesses something evil enter her house and kill her parents and her siblings.

This is another retelling of the classic battle between good and evil. With the really good stories, it is sometimes hard to tell which is which. Are the pretty elves with their glamour here to help or hurt? And the huntsmen riding their spectral horses straight from hell, they must be evil? Right? Not so much.

I liked how the author played on the “don’t judge a book by its cover” theme. The huntsmen, though they come from hell, are on earth to protect human kind and the pretty elves are actually

Recommendation: Another interesting series on immortal hunters, walking deads, fairies, angels and humans; with a connection to Hell this time around - giving a different perspective to that world.

Hunter Deceived in the first book in the Wild Hunt series by Nancy Corrigan and published in September of 2014. The plot is set in a world where humans, immortal hunters, fairies and the walking dead co-exist. This book revolved around Calan – the leader of the Wild Hunt – and Harley Call

I should have known with the fantastic prequel for this series that there was more amazing writing and story to come. Building on the excellent backstory presented in Hunter Sacrificed, Hunter Deceived tells us the story of Calan, leader of the Wild Hunt and son to Arawn, the Lord of the Underworld (and main character from Hunter Sacrificed), and Harley-a woman with a complicated lineage that includes a direct tie to the Unseelie court.

I had hoped the fantastic writing from the prequel would con

Calan, is the son of the Lord of the Underworld and the leader of a group of hunters who are out to rid the world of the evil fairies from the Unseelie Court. Having the only weapon that can stop Dahm, the ultimate tainted dark fairy, Calan and his hunters try to get to him before he can kill his own child that will open the layers between our world and Hell.

When Calan, immortal leader of the Wild Hunt, first laid eyes on Harley, he was overwhelmed by her aura of innocence. Nine years later, he hasn't been able to forget the beautiful woman who walked away. Time has changed Harley and the taint of her dark heritage has begun to stain her soul.

Powerfully drawn to the strong and honorable woman she has become, Calan is determined to protect her, even if it costs him part of his own soul. The deep desire he harbors to win her love in return is pitted a

My lunch at work went unfinished and I sat in my car when I got home just so I could finish Hunter Betrayed. Nancy has done it again.

To live with a taint so evil even immortals have a hard time not going crazy and staying pure is a miracle. Knowing that Harley not only did this but she also found time and room in her heart for love, wow. From the moment the rebellious teenager burst onto the page I couldn’t get enough. She was tough.

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. Nancy has struck again. She delved into a new arena in the paranorm and it is flawless. We deal with the underworld, fairies, and slaughs. Throw in some romance, condemned love, and death! The characters are well developed, the sex scenes I would give a 7/10 because there just were not enough of them. The links between characters can be felt through the written word. If I had to complain about something (which I really don't), it would be ...more

This story starts off somewhat confusing, with all the different characters to keep track of and the time-jumps and flashbacks going on. It seemed a little disorganized, but I stuck with it. I'm glad I did. I enjoyed the book.

I did think all the half-finished sentences were a bit much (I'm perfectly capable of speech in the throes of passion lol) and the way they both needed each other to calm themselves down -- it made it seem as though if there were any other choice, maybe they wouldn't be tog
