A Starred Review from PW for Kiss opener, THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY


Hunter (Cracking the Dating Code) launches Harlequin’s Kiss contemporary romance imprint with an emotionally powerful and beautifully rendered love story. Evangeline Jones spent the best and worst week of her life exploring kinky sex with Logan Black. Eleven years later, she’s a confident and successful business woman. When she agrees to marry her business partner, Max Carmichael, so he can access his trust fund and invest in their company, he introduces her to his family—and Evie is shocked to learn that Logan is Max’s half-brother. Brooding, controlling Logan will do anything to get Evie out of his life again before she realizes she’s the only one who can get under his armor. Evie and Logan’s smart, snappy banter quickly explodes into achingly satisfying lovemaking, but tentative steps toward a relationship are hindered by old demons, secrets, and fears. Readers who thrive on empowered women and dangerous men will relish this carefully crafted, intense romance with a modern, relevant voice, which sets a very high bar for the Kiss line. Agent: Jennifer Schober, Spencerhill Associates. (Feb.)

  1. Loved this book so much. An early book of Susan Napier had an abused child/damaged man theme back in the nineties and handled it as well as Kelly Hunter has. At times Kelly reminds me of Susan Napier, maybe because both authors are not out of a mold but so different to all the others and both authors have been top of my ‘any kind of book’ list since reading their first. I not only own all books by both but all ebooks by both as well.

    • Thank you so much for leaving a comment, Joan, and especially this comment. Susan Napier writes wonderful stories, so I’m thrilled to be mentioned positively in the same sentence!

      Apologies for the late reply – I’ve only just fished the comment out of the spam filter.

    This is sounding like a great read, can’t wait. The new Kiss line is looking good!
