Shy and unpopular high school student Sophie Alton has had a crush on Hunt for a long time. Convinced he wouldn’t give a girl like her the time of day, Sophie never approaches him, but that all changes when Hunt rescues Sophie from a groping druggie at a party. Afterwards, they spend a surprisingly passionate night in each other’s arms. Hunt is leaving for the Army the next day. They know they’ll probably never see each other again. The best night of their lives was a one-shot deal.

 Twelve years later, Sophie has become a journalist. She has written several articles about Megan Rawlings, a young runaway and convicted drug user. While in prison, Megan gave birth to a baby girl who was swiftly taken from her. On the day Megan was reunited for a visit with her daughter, she and the baby disappear. Marc Hunter is Megan’s brother. He’s in prison after being convicted of murder. Marc finds out about Megan’s disappearance. He is convinced she is in trouble and is determined to help her. Although Marc hasn’t seen Sophie in twelve years, he knows she’s the only one who can help him. He grants her an interview and once she gets close to him, he takes her hostage and escapes. When Sophie realizes that Marc Hunter is “Hunt,” she is shocked and dismayed. He’s remained a very special man in her eyes, but now he is a criminal. Hunt has spent the last twelve years wanting Sophie back. On the run and fighting for their lives, Marc and Sophie’s love is rekindled as they try desperately to find Megan and her baby. Sophie is a target now and Marc knows he’ll either end up dead or back in prison. There is no future for them, but Sophie doesn’t want to let Hunt go, again.

 Unlawful Contact is dark, edgy, and intense. Hunt is brave, honorable, and sexy. Sophie is sweet, smart, and tough. The chemistry between them is very strong, the sex scenes are incredibly hot, and the romance is achingly tender. The characterization in Unlawful Contact is fantastic. There are so many great characters, both good and villainous. I was on the edge of my seat from first page to last. Unlawful Contact is amazing and the ending is perfect! It is a very well written and moving story.
