The Hunter. Prince Themba bu Kumkani has spent his whole life putting family and kingdom above his own wants and needs. With his impending bonding ceremony on the horizon, he’s gifted a coveted spot in The Hunt. His catch and release strategy is forgotten once he lays eyes on the human female. Their hide and seek game is fuel to the fire raging out of control for her. He’s staked his claim on a mate he cannot have, but can’t live without.

Now Themba has to choose between love or family. One choice will bring happiness while the other will cost him his homeworld and title.

The Prey. With an ex who didn’t want to be an ex, and an impending divorce hanging over her head, Payton Cole already thought her life had gone to hell in a handbasket. Then she woke up in an alien survival of the fittest game. Her top priority is to keep herself and her dog alive until the end. Winning The Hunt means gaining her freedom, but returning to Earth isn’t a high priority.

She doesn’t know where she’ll go or what she’ll do, but one

Hunted by the Alien Prince is the second book in The Hunt series. This story takes place in the same timeframe as the first book in the series, The Game Warden’s Mate. Humans have been taken from all over Earth and taken to an alien planet to be “hunted”.

In this story, we follow Payton and her dog, Jake. Payton has had a hard life. She is currently on the run from her abusive ex-husband. She even got Jake, the former and retired military dog, to help protect her from him. She was taken along with other humans to be used as prey for The Hunt.

The hero of the story is Prince Themba bu Kumkani. He is going on this hunt as a fun way to relax and nurture his more primal side before his upcoming bonding ceremony. He isn’t mating for love, but instead, as many royals, for kingdom. Themba always puts his kingdom before himself. His plan was to catch and release his victim. He just wanted it for the entertainment aspects. That all changed once he laid eyes on Payton.

I have had a really good time with this series so far. I enjoy the world that Ms. Griffin has created. The Hunt takes place in an arena, which can be controlled by the game wardens (similar to the Hunger Games, but that is were the similarities end). The hunters return to their rooms at night, which gives the huntees time to relax and figure out their strategy for the next day. The hunters can do whatever they want with their prey. They can keep them as servants, mates, some might not even survive (though hunters can only kill prey in level three).

This is a really fun series that I think fans of science fiction romance and paranormal romance would enjoy. I’m hoping we will get another story with another victim of the same group of humans. I really enjoyed most of the humans used as prey and would love to hear stories their stories.

About A.M. Griffin

Author: A.M. Griffin Bio Image

By day I see myself as Clark Kent – or maybe a girl version of him. I’m working hard at the day job, trying not to blow my cover. Then, in the face of danger – or in my case, at night, I’m a super-hero.

In my head, I’m fighting crime wearing a black-leather cat-suit. And since this is my fantasy, of course I have the body to make my outfit work. I’m wearing a black mask, with my glossy (and split-end free) black hair hanging down my back. To top this uber cool (and slimming) ensemble off, I’m wearing fire engine red lipstick over full, pouty lips. On my skinny sexy legs, I have on stiletto boots that ride up to my knees.

Now I’m ready to fight crime – cool like (wha-cha).

Oh wait, I let my imagination run away from me. I don’t fight crime, I spin tales in my pajamas. Which, to keep the flow on the cool side, could be imagined not as flannel with snowflakes pictured on them, but as black silk.

So with my black silk pajamas on, after putting in hard hours at the day job, at night I sit at my computer looking cool as hell and spin tales of alien invasions, sexy alien kings, tough-as-nails Earth women, fighting, murder and of course, alien dismemberment.

I’m Melanie, and I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. I will read contemporary romance on occasion, but not often. I will occasionally throw in a biography, usually autobiographies of people that I find interesting. Listening to autobiographies that are narrated by the author have been great in my experience.

I started listening to audiobooks when a new book in a series was coming out and I wanted to get a refresher, but didn’t have time to read all the books (I think it was Anita Blake). I fell in love. I stayed with strictly re-reading books that I’d already read for a long time. I eventually tried an audiobook for something that I hadn’t read first and was hooked there too. Now, I listen to audio for both re-reads and first time. I have some series that I’ve given up reading and only listen. I try to get any many books/audiobooks from the library to help save on my budget. Books on CD and the newer digital downloads from the library really allow me to listen more. I then purchase my favorites (because who can wait in line for your favorite book??) and less mainstream books from Audible or some other online retailer.

  1. I have yet to venture into more PNR, scifi romance and aliens. And while it interests me it is unlikely I will manage it in 2019. With everything happening, I can’t take on any new stuff this fall, because different stuff requires mental energy and I’m at the max for now.

    Great review! This sounds like one to consider when I get going on different things in 2020.
