Ten Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Fall For a Hunter By Theresa Meyers

Make no mistake, Hunters, like the Jackson brothers in my Legend Chronicles series, are hunky, protective, all-guts-or-no-glory kind of guys, but if you ever consider falling for one, you might want to think again. When I first met the guys and got a peak at their world, I was stunned by how early they were brought into “the life” and what they’d suffered even when still young. While it makes them fantastic heroes, it makes them not as good as boyfriends. Here’s a quirky list of ten reasons you shouldn’t fall for a Hunter.

10. Hunters are Deadly. If you are a Darkin female (vampire, demon, ghost, shapeshifter or the like), falling for a Hunter can be deadly. Not only will he be on edge around you, he’d be impossible to bring to a family get-together for fear of killing off your relations. If you’re human, he’s likely bringing trouble to your door. Watch out.

9. Hunter are Workaholics. If you are looking for a man who will listen to you, be home on time and be there when you need him, don’t fall for a Hunter. They’re about the job, 100% of the time. He’ll likely be sharpening his weapons or cleaning his gun while you’re talking to him, and never be sure when he’ll be home, or if he’ll even make it home alive.

8. Hunters have Baggage. And I’m not talking about extra luggage. Most of them have seen and done things by the time they are 15 that even a war veteran wouldn’t want to stomach. He’ll likely have nightmares and occasionally be broody. Chances are anything you talk about will bring up an unpleasant memory in one way or another.

7. Hunters are too Sexy. Don’t make the mistake of thinking your eyes are the only one on your Hunter. Everywhere he goes, there will be women, both Darkin and human, putting the make on him. The only good thing is that he’ll likely be as loyal as they come, since he’s seen a lot and knows the value of trust.

6. Hunters don’t make much. Let’s face it, when your primary job is to hunt down supernaturals, it’s not like the pay is going to be good. Most Hunters in the wild west are considered outlaws (since the normal law can seem to tell the difference between a dead vampire and a dead human).

5. Hunters are Loners. Yeah, I know you think you can change him, but for the most part Hunters are loners. Their profession is not something you can politely discuss with the neighbors, and is often dangerous to loved ones, so they find it easier to keep to themselves.

4. Hunters are hell on clothes. If you fall for a Hunter, beware that his clothing is likely to come to the washroom shredded, bloody or singed, or more likely all three. It’s a hazard of the job. You’d be better off to strip him down and keep him home naked (if you can).

3. Hunters don’t love easily. If you fall for a Hunter, remember he may not be that into you. He’s got more on his mind than most guys. And if they are like Winchester, Colt or Remington, chances are your Hunter has had a hard time holding on to the people they love, enough to be wary of involving their emotions with a woman. But once they do find someone they love, watch out. He’ll never want to leave your side for fear of what might happen to you.

2. Hunters are too Serious. A Hunter is not the type of guy to take you out on the town. When they do have down time, they aren’t going to party it up. They are more likely to want to hunker down and keep close to home. And a sense of humor? Maybe, but not likely. The closest you are going to get to a sense of humor with most Hunters is sarcasm.

And the top reason not to fall for a Hunter…

1. Hunting is in the blood. Chances are even if you found the nicest Hunter around to settle down with, he’d always be a Hunter. Just like Winchester Jackson, he can run, he can try to change, but deep down being a Hunter is something that’s bone deep and never changes. And chances are, if you had any kids, they’d be trained to be Hunters too. No Hunter wants to see his family unarmed and unwary of the dangers of the Darkin around them.

I haven’t convinced you, have I? You know there’s more to these guys than meets the eye. So…just in case you still think you might want to hook up with a Hunter, might I suggest peeling back the pages of THECHOSEN?

Happy reading!

Book Description:

The Chosen: a prophecy older than dirt and more dangerous than death. Even as they perfected steam-powered gadgetry and rounded up varmints from Hell, the Jackson brothers didn't believe in it. But when the chips are down, three brothers named for weapons aren't going out without a fight...

A Walk On The Wild Side

Attorney by day, demon-hunter by night, Remington Jackson is used to being on the sunny side of the law, even in the Wild West. But it's showdown time, and Remy and his brothers are getting desperate. They don't have the relic they need to slam the door shut on evil—so Remy is going to have to find and steal part of it.

Enter China McGee, shapeshifter, thief, beauty, and current prisoner. When Remy offers her freedom in exchange for a little light-fingered help, she's pretty sure she's going to end the association with a good old-fashioned seductive double cross. But there's something about fighting through a jungle full of Aztec ruins that makes you want to settle down together. China could change. Remy might be special. But none of that matters if the devil takes them all... 

About the Author:

The progeny of a slightly mad (NASA) scientist and a tea-drinking bibliophile who turned the family dining room into a library, Theresa Meyers learned early the value of a questioning mind, books and a good china teapot.

A former journalist and public relations officer, she found far more enjoyment using her writing skills to pen paranormal novels in the turret office of her Victorian home.

She’s spent nearly a quarter of a century with the boy who took her to the Prom, drinks tea with milk and sugar, is an adamant fan of the television show Supernatural, and has an indecent love of hats.
