Book Description

Big-city Lawyer. Country Farmer.

In the normal course of events, their lives would never intersect...
But some accidents aren't meant to be avoided.


When attorney Reggie Meyers crashes into Dylan Monroe on the freeway, it makes a bad day even worse—or so she thinks until she discovers she’s the prey in the deadly hunt of an unknown killer. Now, trusting this man she hardly knows is Reggie’s best chance for survival. The problem? Reggie doesn’t trust anyone.

When Dylan catches a glimpse of Reggie’s ransacked apartment, his protective instincts kick in. He wants to help her, but she’s not inclined to believe a simple country farmer has what it takes. Reggie doesn’t realize Dylan knows a lot about hunting—and being hunted. He’s up for the task of trapping a killer, keeping Reggie safe, and winning her heart—if she’ll let him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lillian has written a five-star story August 17, 2011
Format:Paperback
The ultimate test of a good novel is the story told, and Lillian Duncan created a powerful story with Pursued. First the attorney, Reggie (short for Regina) Meyers is in danger of losing her job because of a grammatical error on a contract.

At the airport on her way home, a woman accidentally whacks her in the head with luggage when she takes it from the carousel. Still dizzy from the blow, Reggie tries to weave her way through heavy traffic. She swerves to avoid a dog being chased by a child and an old pickup collides with her car.

She doesn't care how handsome the driver is, she's angry. Since her vehicle absorbed most of the impact, he offers to drive her home. After he uses some persuasion, she goes with him only to find the door to her home wide open, her apartment ransacked, trashed and the furniture slashed.

The owner of the pickup, Dylan Monroe, insists she can't stay in that apartment after such vandalism. The person might be a killer.

Thus begins the chase. Reggie is pursued by someone who is serious about killing her. She's shot at, her phone is bugged, and bombs are placed on her car.

Although Dylan just met her, he insists on protecting her. He takes her to his sister's house. When she's followed there, he moves her to his parents, then to a friend's place that is difficult to find and equipped with detection equipment.

It takes a while for Reggie to understand why Dylan wants to help. He's a committed Christian and feels it's his calling to do what he can for a person in need. Reggie, abandoned by her parents at a young age, is in need of someone who cares. She grew up in foster homes and knows little of committed love and devotion. She fights being attracted to Dylan because he's a farmer and she's an attorney.

The story is a great read, and that's why I give it five stars it deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story! December 7, 2012
By Dovon

If you like mystery and a bit of romance sprinkled with Christian values, this book is for you. I enjoyed the intrique and the budding love story made so much more pleasant by the Christian undertones. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Christian Mystery! August 11, 2011
By Granny
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. I read it in a few hours since it was hard to put down!
I can't wait to read the sequel to "Pursued." I love it when a writer gives historical information about the place where the story takes place. It made me feel like I'm a part of the plot. Ms. Duncan is a gifted Christian writer and I look forward to reading many more of her mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! July 21, 2011
Format:Paperback
I loved this book. I did not want to put it down and hated to see it end. It was like reading a Dean Koontz novel only with an inspirational twist. I'll be looking for more books by Lillian Duncan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! July 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Reading "Pursued" was an absolute delight. I tend to be bogged down in deep, non-fiction books and often need something to lighten the mood. This was perfect! The tension was built beautifully. The romance was subtle and didn't make me squirm in my seat (something I DEEPLY appreciate). Lillian Duncan infuses her writing with her faith, but doesn't beat you over the head with it - it is like a perfect seasoning. The jokes made me laugh out loud, and Duncan's book made me think to pray. "Pursued" is an excellent adventure, keeping you on the edge of your seat while still giving you something to think and smile about. Bottom line: buy the book, lean back, and prepare to enjoy yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Romp through Ohio (and PA and VA) July 17, 2011
Format:Paperback
Reggie Meyers is a high-powered lawyer, at least she wants to be. Right now she's an apprentice lawyer who has just bungled a big contract. And crashed her car into a farmer's pickup. And found her apartment trashed. Oh, and someone keeps shooting at her.

But the aforementioned pickup belongs to studly Dylan Monroe, who sneaks in some farming among some mysterious "other things." After driving her home and seeing her trashed apartment, he's not going to leave her alone until she's safe. And the way things are going, that might take a while.

Lillian Duncan's romantic suspense is a delightful romp through Ohio (and Pennsylvania and West Virginia.) Populated with interesting characters, a couple of running gags, and the steady drumbeat of suspense, it's an entertaining and quick read.

I'd tell you more, but I might have to kill you.

I've had the privilege of critiquing Lillian Duncan as a fellow ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writer), a sequel to this story. This was an excellent start to the series. The characters are entertaining and grab your interest.

As stated, the author is a Christian and there are elements of Christian faith in the story. If a positive portrayal of Christianity bothers you, pass on this good story. But is it preachy? Not at all.

I will admit there's one cliche that tended to get overused. I could tell you what that cliche is, but... Never mind about that minor weakness. Duncan does a great job of having you guessing what will happen next. I thought the epilogue was very well written. And you really care about the main characters, as well as excellent supporting characters, such as Reggie's art gallery friend. And just wait till you meet Billy Clyde!

Due to time, I had to miss certain sections of the above mentioned sequel. I can't wait till it gets published. Maybe I should pick up Deception to hold me over.

One last comment. I won this book in a contest, and the author asked me to review it, which I would have anyways. There was no arm twisting or begging or bribing for me to give a positive review.
