    1. If you've ever thought to yourself: I wonder what it would be like to read a story with a POV of a bear! - Have I got the book for you!! There are pages and pages of the bear's thoughts. Oh, and he's a killer bear. Even better. Nobody wants to read pages and pages of a sweet and cuddly bear's thoughts. That would be boring!Bear thoughts are strangely existentialSo, killer bear is out to eat people. That's his thing. He wants to eat our h & H, Angie and Dare. Frankly, I want him to eat the au [...]

    2. I had been staying away from Howard's most recent releases due to the somewhat lackluster ratings but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I loved this book! Admittedly, it didn't quite reach the five star mark for me but that is really an oddly elusive thing lately, and books that get five stars from me get it for no reason that I can really explainey just have a little extra wow. One of my favorite Howard books is Up Close and Dangerousere's something I love about a couple forced to [...]

    3. *Sigh* How horribly disappointing. This book was flat-out boring. There were actually chapters upon chapters written from a bear's point of view! A bear! Remember Up Close and Personal, where we learned everything we'd ever need to know if we crashed our plane into a mountain? Yeah, well here we learn about bears and camping. I'll give LH props for her research. The woman is an expert on so many things! However, in the end, I had to struggle to finish this. At one point I said to my husband, "Ju [...]

    4. Take rival adventure guides h/H, murderous clients, feral bears, dangerous storms, a run for their lives, enforced seclusion in a mountain cabin and you get the gist of this typical Linda Howard romantic thriller set up in the Montana Rockies. This is her third survival-up-a-snowy-mountain that I’ve read. This book had too much narrative in the first half, although I enjoyed the first couple of chapters where we get the H's pov and get to know her as a person but then it got somewhat tedious t [...]

    5. Murder, Conflict, Sexual FireworksI was rather surprised by the overly harsh reviews I've read on Prey. I'll admit to being a diehard Linda Howard fan so I ignored the reviews and bought the book anyway. After all, as an author, I get bad reviews too, and I like to think that readers are discerning enough to wade through bad reviews if a book's blurb sounds like their kind of book.I liked Prey. In fact, I stayed up way too late to finish it the other night. Nobody does heroes better than Linda H [...]

    6. I have read every book and novella Linda Howard's written, all 53 of them. I started reading her as a romance author, and stuck with her into the romantic suspense territory, even though I prefer books more centered on human relationships and emotions than action and mysteries. Even with bad guys present, she could describe a bit about his background to make him if not someone I'd like to be around, at least someone I can relate to on some level. But a couple of chapters into this book, the view [...]

    7. I'm just continually bummed by Linda Howard these days. In the past she's been so brilliant, but things are hit and miss these days (as I have said many times recently). This book had a FABULOUS concept and the execution wasn't bad. She worked it out so that the scenario seemed plausible, and that was good. She also had characters that were just unique enough to make the story work. (Outdoorsy girl, abandoned by mother, raised by father, bad first wedding, not a quitter. Military man with shrapn [...]

    8. Nothing like I expected from an author of Linda Howard's caliber. It was a total disappointment. Even the lead characters were less than interesting. The bear indeed had a POV -- which didn't much interest me, either. It hurts to review and rate this book so low because I've been a fan of LH's books for many years. She's had some of the best romantic suspense novels I've ever read. Her heroes are almost always exceptional. However, there's just nothing I can say about "Prey" except I just didn't [...]

    9. Overall rating: 4.5 stars!Triggers:Cheating: (view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Love triangle: (view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Sex with om/ow: (view spoiler)[ No and to elaborate on that, the hero has been wanting the heroine for 2 years. He asked her out twice and the heroine turned him down twice. Here is a quote that confirms he has not been with anyone in all of that time. "Except, even though she always looked at him as if he was a pile of steaming fresh cow manure that she'd just stepped in [...]

    10. I'm not going to lie - the only reason I gave this book three stars was because I just can't bring myself to give Linda Howard a worse rating. She has been one of my favorite romantic suspense authors ever since I discovered the genre, and I stay pretty loyal to my authors. But this book was a huge disappointment all around. The book focuses A LOT on how bad the weather is. Of course, that is the main reason why they are stuck together for so long thus making it possible to be with each other an [...]

    11. Angie Powell has decided to throw in the towel. Her guide business isn't doing well since Dare Callahan opened his business. But she has one more trip on the books. This one is a bear hunt. She doesn't like bear but she needs it. Dare is asked by a friend to check on Angie so he goes on a fishing trip so he can be close by just in case. But Angie isn't suppose to make it back alive. Meanwhile, there is a man-eating bear out there and he's hungry. If I were to compare this one to other Linda Howa [...]

    12. **2.5 stars**Prey wasn't terrible, it was just a lot more about camping than romance. Even the man eating black bear had a POV!Angie hates Dare because she feels he ran her out of business. They are both wilderness guides in West Montana and when he set up shop, he siphoned a lot of her clients. Angie acknowledges that it's not all his fault - she made a lot of mistakes running the business she inherited from her father - but still hates his guts.On what she feels will be her last trip she's tak [...]

    13. From Linda Howard's Facebook page:PREY is about a female hunting guide who takes a party bear hunting -- except the bear is hunting THEM. Throw in a killer, as well as a fellow hunting guide who is also her nemesis, add a pinch of terror (I'm now officially terrified of bears, because I've learned too much about them), a scoosh of sexual tension, a cup of grouchy man, a pound of sex, blend well, bake at 350, and voila! -- a book emerges.

    14. I had really, really high hope's for this bookter reading Veil I felt that LH was getting closer to her old writing standarddly I was wrong, this is the lowest rating I have EVER given to one of her books :(

    15. 3.5 yıldız :) Eksikleri olsa da fena değildi Konu güzeldi ama daha çok macera beklerdim Bir dağ kulübesinde beklemektense doğada daha çok zorluk yaşayabilirlerdi Herşey çok oldu bitti ye gelmiş.

    16. 3.5*I enjoyed the suspense plot, the bear, the descriptions of the wilderness and the details of being a guide. I liked both main characters and thought Dare's character in particular was humorous. I even liked the romance, what there was of it!And that's the problem in a nutshell. The story is good, but with more fleshing out and a some layering of the plot lines, it could have been great. It had all the bone structure for a great Linda Howard book. It just needed more meat.Still, it was fun an [...]

    17. Ok these days I am not lucky with the books I chose to read. I love romance about people trapped together so I was excited about this one. No , it is not a good book.

    18. Reread 1/30 2016 Enjoyed this just as much the second time.First read - November 8, 2011.Other than the odd pages we spent in the POV of the bear and 5 or so pages in the head of an NPC who immediately got eaten by said bear, I really enjoyed this book. It was more an action survival book than anything else. The heroine had guts and then some. She had moral fiber to know when to sell out her property and business and she was super tough crawling down a mountain in a storm with a broken ankle to [...]

    19. Düzeltiye dikkat edilmemiş kitapta, bir çok yerde yanlış yazılmış kelimeler vardı bunlar rahatsız ediciydi. Kitap aslında yazarın Fırtına kitabını andırıyordu ama bu daha gerilimli ve daha tutkuluydu. Zaten o kitapta da her şey çok aceleye gelmiş diye sinir olmuştum bunun daha uzun olması ve olayları detaylandırması daha iyiydi. Çifti de sevdim, sonunda herkesin hak ettiğini bulduğu bir kitaptı. Sevdim yani ben kitabı.

    20. this is really a short story (at most a novella) which has been padded, stretched and filled with a lot of repetition to make a regular-length novel. There is a great line in the last chapter which sums it up nicely -- the arc of the story is told in about 20 words.I was actually able to skim through large parts of the story without missing anything.

    21. Good story, but I found it a little slow moving. It ended well, but overall not my favorite one by Ms. Howard. Parts just dragged for me.

    22. Angie Powell is a wilderness tour guide, and she heads out with accountant Chad Krugman, and his client, Mitchell Davis, little realising that Chad is using the opportunity to murder Mitchell, because Mitchell has found out he's been siphoning funds from him!Dare Callahan, a rival who has just about put Angie out of business (so she hates him), heads out as well, as a favour for the friend of one of Angie's late father, to keep an eye on her. Good thing he does, because of course Chad does shoot [...]

    23. Updating book review to add audio review. I waver between 3 and 4 stars. Abby Craden's narrationis quite good for Angie, but her voice for the hero (Dare) is a bit too gravely, strained, and rough (she does this on purpose because he had a throat injury). As for how the audio story flows, the first 8 chapters are slow, with too much time devoted to Angie's thoughts, and few scenes with Dare. The action on the stormy ice-cold mountain with a man-eating bear and a ruthless killer begins at chapter [...]

    24. Linda Howard favori yazarlarımdan biridir benim. Çıkmış olan kitapların, bulabildiğim kadarını almış tek tek okumuş, hatta defalarca da okuyacak kadar çok sevmişimdir. Kadının kendine has üslubu, kaleminin profesyonel oluşu ortada bir kere. Kurgularındaki heyecanlı tempo hiç eksik değildir mesela, bıkmadan sıkılmadan okuyup bitiriyorsunuz kitapları.Zamansız Fırtına da sıkılmadan, heyecanla okuyup bitireceğiniz Linda Howard kitaplarından biri.Konusuna gelecek olur [...]

    25. Audio version. Interesting story not much sex which was good. I enjoyed the wilderness aspect and this was the first book I've read with a bear's POV. Well, the animal sort of bear anyways.

    26. Random thoughts of Linda Howard with a romance thrown in best describes this book. I will rate the chapters I liked best. Chapter two. When Angie and Dare first interact in the book. This chapter was very well written Angie wants nothing to do with Dare as she feels he is the reason her business is going bankrupt and she has to sell and move. She has never told Dare this so he doesn’t understand why she runs from him every time she sees him. He pins her in by her vehicle and the banter back an [...]

    27. I can't see me ever giving up reading Linda Howard books. I've loved way too many to not give each new book a try. And though many readers seem disappointed with her books over the past few years, I've enjoyed them enough to keep going. Having said that, I was a bit disappointed with Prey. Just a bit mind you and I have no problems saying if you continue to be a Howard fan, I don't think this one will change that.As usual, I loved Dare, the hero. There have been very few Howard heroes I haven't [...]
