Hunters are a lonely breed, and Conor’s no exception, until the day he meets Brenna. Even though she slinks in unannounced and kills the wight he was hunting down, the girl’s a mystery and he can’t get that blinding smile or those gorgeous curves off his mind.

A Hunter meets his match - 5 magical stars!

This is a fast paced and engaging urban fantasy romance which pairs Conor, a hunter of otherworldly abominations, with the mysterious Brenna. It is the second book that I have read by Katherine McIntyre, the other being the Steampunk romance Stolen Petals, and I hugely enjoyed it.

After his life is unexpectedly saved by Brennna, Conor joins her on her quest to rescue her stolen pendant from a common foe. He becomes spellbound by Brenna’s combination of b

This story kept me enthralled. The writing is rich with character, and makes you lose sleep because you can't put it down. Yes, I said you CAN'T put it down! I look forward to reading more of Katherine's masterpieces.

Born to be enemies but destined to be lovers!

Conor is a hunter who has vanquished creatures of all kinds. Raised to be ruthless, he is expected to kill enemy fae on sight. But when a chance encounter puts him in the company of a lovely half-fae, he feels more inclined to kiss her than kill her. And after learning of her need for assistance, Conor finds himself playing knight-in-shining-armor to the trouble

Conor Malone isn’t just another hunter of paranormals. Living in West Philadelphia defending innocents, he was raised to hate all things paranormal especially Fae. Until he meets Brenna, Brenna who is part Fae (which he does not know right away). Conor finds himself in a situation where Brenna winds up being at the right place at the right time. Immediately you get a sense of something between her and Connor, and her banter with him-too funny.

>Book Review – Hunting for Spring –

>This is a standalone paranormal romance that ends in an HEA. The paranormal realm in this story is hidden from most of the human race, except for those humans born to hunt the dangerous entities, or Unseelies. Conor is a human hunter. Conor’s father, also a hunter, is so prejudiced against the paranormal that he cannot see good or evil. Conor’s father just wants to kill all paranormal entities, even if said entities are half human.

I really liked this book. I'm a PNR junkie so I know what I'm talking about.

Conor the Hunter was so engaging. Reminded me a bit of the Supernatural boys (Sam and Dean) and that is never bad. Brenna, a half-breed, was spunky and a good match for our Hunter.

There's a lot going on in this story. Zombies, witches, Seelie, slaugh/Unseelie, daddy issues, prejudice, secrets...but it all works. I never lost interest in the story. However, Brenna and Conor could have moved a little quicker with the sexy

Conor Malone was a Hunter, responsible for tracking mythical beasts, most especially Fae. Unlike the rest of his family who hunted the Unseelie fae with no compassion or mercy, Conor had a big heart for dogs, a conscience, and a sense of fairness.

Brenna is a fiery, feisty half-fae female determined to hunt down and retrieve her property. Crossing paths with Conor, realizing that he is not like the other Hunters, that he is himself willing to work with others when it made sense, Brenna decides t

Conor has too much heart to ever be like his dad or his foster brother. So when dear old brother banishes Brenna to the Other world without the needed protection of her amulet, Conor will do anything to find her as he has some mighty strong feelings for her despite her being fae and the arch enemy of his hunter team. An excellent storyline and some great storytelling. I loved it!

I once again found a new author. I have fallen in love with Ms. McIntyre’s world. She writes about a world within a world that is very easy to understand and follow. It was a world that I found very easy to lose myself in while having fun reading about new and old magical beings. I loved how she blended the magical beings we are used to in stories with some new ones that fit while adding a whole new dim

In West Philadelphia born and raised hunting sluagh and fae is where Conor spent most of his days.....Ok in all seriousness this was a good paranormal story.

Conor Malone was a mythical being hunter. Born and raised to wield knives and use iron against the fae was his only purpose in life. Raised by his father Patrick Malone who was rather rough and tumble and callous. He raised his son and his best friends son Liam with one purpose that all fae are evil no matter what they do. Cono

I was provided a copy of Hunting for Spring in exchange for an honest review. This was a story line and a concept that I honestly found to be original, and for once, rather refreshing. No vampires here.

We have Conor who is a hunter; think Buffy in men’s clothes. He also has a bloodhounds’ nose he uses to track prey. I found that a bit amusing, him standing around sniffing objects to pick up scents. Here you go Conor, find the bad guy; good boy! You get the idea. While tracking a zombie type cre

Enter a fascinating new paranormal world with hunters, fae, witches and so much more!

Conner is a hunter, but unlike others like him he is not cold and emotionless. He's also willing to accept help from others when needed.

Brenna is a spitfire determined to get back what was stolen from her even if it means working with the often feared hunter. But realizing he is different from the rest only makes it easier to accept his help and trust him.

Hunters, Fae, and loads of magic and mayhem. Conor and Brenna should be enemies, but sometimes fate has other plans as these two find out between dangerous situations. Hunting for Spring is a can't catch your breath, action packed start to a new series, and Katherine McIntyre certainly knows her stuff when it comes to exciting storytelling. The story starts with danger and doesn't let up as the tension snowballs right up to an edge of your seat conclusion. This tale of romance, betrayal, and fam ...more

Hunting for Spring is the first book in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles and we have the world building that will enable us to read the rest of the series, knowing who is who and who does what. Hunter is a human Hunter - usually of the Fae - but he understands that just as not all humans are nice, not all Fae are 'bad'. Unfortunately, it's an opinion that is unpopular with his father and the man who was brought up as his brother. When he meets Brenna, he thinks she is a normal fae, which is als ...more
