C. L. Hunter

C.L. Hunter started writing poetry as a young girl. Her grandparents owned newspapers in Arkansas: the McCrory Leader and the Augusta Advocate. She’d send her poems to them. In return they’d print them in the weekly newspaper and send the clippings back to her. That started her love for writing.

She attended Arkansas State, studying business, but started a family early having three children. Hunter considers herself a Floridian, having lived in Saint Augustine since the age of seven. She loves the beach and hot, humid weather—the hotter the better.  ...See more >

A tragic death opens a door to the spirit world, offering a new chance for two broken hearts.

Nolan O’Neill, wealthy CEO of a multinational company based in Ireland, feels shock and guilt when his American colleague Thomas Stone dies in a car accident in Dublin. As he sits by Thomas’ deathbed, Nolan witnesses the visit of a celestial being, Calista, who escorts Thomas into the “Land of Eternal Youth”; Thomas also charges Nolan with taking care of his wife, Emmalyn. Nolan begins, tentatively, to fulfill that responsibility by writing to Emmalyn, and the two commence an epistolary courtship that evolves into real-life romance when Nolan visits Emmalyn in Hilton Head, South Carolina, where she lives, then whisks her away to Ireland in his private jet. It’s at about this point where the novel—which up until then has benignly dabbled in fantasy, romance, and travelogue—abruptly veers into straight-up erotica, with an initial sexual encounter between Nolan and Emmalyn that goes into graphic detail and lasts for three full chapters. The graphic sex is complemented by Nolan’s excessive courtship, which includes $40,000 champagne as well as scouts and hidden treetop guards to “protect” Emmalyn. Readers might expect that, à la Fifty Shades, the calculated seduction and submissiveness evolves into a darker, more complicated relationship; somewhat disappointingly, it does not. Instead, the narrative focuses on the grotesquely caricatured displays of wealth, power, and relatively unproblematic sexual dominance. A thriller aspect enters the fray via Nolan’s troubled past, which comes back to haunt him in the form of a few secondary characters determined to destroy his love with Emmalyn. The few action scenes aren’t well-integrated into the larger narrative, but they do provide Nolan with several more opportunities to be the heroic savior to Emmalyn’s damsel in distress. Book’s end includes an excerpt from a planned sequel in which angels will apparently also indulge in kinky sex, and Nolan and Emmalyn’s best friends will have their own chance at romance.

Over the top and frequently under it; might please fans looking for another shade of gray.


Contemporary romance, fantasy, erotica

From the busy city life of Dublin, Ireland to the quiet little town of Hilton Head, South Carolina, two lives are pulled together by tragedy and something more—call it fate, call it faeries. After giving up a daughter for adoption at sixteen, KATLYN REYNOLDS has built a successful advertising company to keep her mind busy and her heart safe. But this pain from her past has made Kate a use ’em and leave ’em kind of girl, bypassing love and commitment to protect herself. And this system has worked— —until she meets DEACON O’MALLERY, a sweet, sexy, striving Irish businessman. Deacon is known as a jammy, a lucky bastard. As second in command at the largest intel company in Europe, he has the world by the balls, leaving the orphaned boy who grew up with nothing—any everyone else—behind. Then Katlyn Reynolds walks into his life and he’s smitten. Kate is his maité Sol, his soul mate; he just knows it; even his wanker can’t stop thinking about her. And, for the first time, after hearing Kate’s story of brutality and loss, he wants to find his birth mother, the woman who abandoned him. Kate’s feelings for Deacon are confusing. She cares enough to reveal her past, but insists he find love somewhere else. Now this stubborn bloke has two missions: to find his mother and to make the girl across the ocean stand by his side forever. Ádh mór ort, Kate! Good luck, he thinks. She’s going to need it to fight him off, for he has more than good looks, charm, tenacity, and money on his side. Deacon has Thomas and Calista: spirits he unwittingly beckons into his life. Angels are in the midst. They walk among us here on earth. All you have to do is believe…. In the second book in the Soul Mate Series the cross-continental frolics continue with Kate and Deacon. Drama blends with desire and an off-the-charts plot, creating the heavyweight champion of page-turners in this sensual romance.
