A Hunter Agency Book
Reviewer's Choice

Dear Ellen,
I miss you terribly, and I'm sorry you're dead. I wish it weren't my fault.

Little more than a year ago, Karin Sommers escaped the con man's life she'd grown up in--and in the process, her sister died, gifting her with the perfect cover identity as her last wish. Karin became Ellen, working a small subsidence farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains while hunting options for her future.

But Ellen Sommers was an unknowing witness to a terrible crime, and now Karin once more becomes fugitive--this time not from her own past, but from Ellen's. And Ellen's past comes complete with FBI consulting investigator Dave Hunter--a man driven to find his own answers, but who might well condemn Karin along the way.

Karin's response? Fight back, with all the hard-earned skills that put her in this position in the first place.

"SURVIVAL INSTINCT by Doranna Durgin is nonstop action from start to finish. Using a former con artist as the main character in a story is a novel idea. The characters are flawed, yet still likeable. Kudos to Durgin for an excellent book."
--Romantic Times, Four 1/2 Stars

"Doranna Durgin writes a white-knuckle thriller that will have your heart pounding in your chest from the very first page.... This is one book that will leave you hanging off the cliff until the very last second. And you'll love every minute of it."
--Romance Junkies

"SURVIVAL INSTINCT has to be the best Doranna Durgin book to date...action packed and thrilling while at the same time loaded with an emotional punch."
--Wendy Keel, Romance Reader's Connection, 4 1/2 Hearts

"In this original plot, the characters and circumstances surrounding the heroine are ingeniously developed to create an entertaining and gripping story... With suspenseful moments, unexpected turns and engaging characters, SURVIVAL INSTINCT will hook readers on every enthralling page. "
--Amelia Richard, CataRomance 5 Stars
