Pursued by the Rogue by Kelly Hunter is a twist on the Ugly Duckling and I thing she did it well. Dawn has her reasons for only doing casual sex, so when she gets the opportunity to be with her friend's older brother Finn again, she takes it. Well, Finn and Dawn have a past. They lost their virginity to each other ten years earlier and the result of that caused scars for Dawn. That, combined with some family health issues, causes Dawn to push everyone away. Finn falls for Dawn immediately and knows that she is the one for him. He starts pushing her for more, but she is pushing him away. When her secrets are revealed he must decide if he wants to stay with her or let her go for good. This was a well written story and a good start to a new series. Kelly Hunter is a talented author and I look forward to more books from her in the future. I give this book a solid 4 stars and will be reading more from both this author and this series in the future.
A no-strings affair between two dedicated professionals? It should have been the perfect solution.
duckling Dawn Turner doesn’t do relationships. She has her reasons and
they’re good ones. But she can’t resist the magic in Finbar Sullivan’s
touch, so she negotiates the next best thing with him. Scorchingly
perfect, utterly casual sex.

Sullivan always pushes the limits to get what he wants, and he wants
Dawn. All of her. Love, commitment and a future together. So he reneges
on the deal and composes a new one.
So what’s stopping her? And will Finn’s latest offer be enough to change Dawn’s mind?
