Former DEA agent turned Bullet Catcher bodyguard Max Roper would rather be anywhere but on his latest case, since it involves his lost love,
Cori. Cori blamed Max for her agent father's death and later married older billionaire William Peyton. He recently died, leaving Cori in charge of his estate. The insurance company finds his death suspicious, and when Cori requests security, Max is given the two-pronged job: Find out if someone killed William and keep Cori from harm.

Still grieving from her sudden
loss, Cori isn't pleased that her bodyguard is none other than her lost love. She thinks her husband was murdered, and she doesn't know who to trust. Should Cori risk her life and her emotions on Max one more time?

Bodyguards are hot and oh-so-sexy in the second installment of St. Claire's fascinating Bullet Catcher series. Intense emotions and evocative characters make for dynamic reading. (Aug., 384 pp., $6.99)

Thrill Me to Death

Submitted by Robin in PA on September 30, 2012 - 5:25pm.

Max Roper's new assignment for the Bullet Catchers is to protect the rich widow of Billionaire William Peyton who died three months ago, and find out if she had anything to do with his death. It seems like an easy assignment until Max learns that the wife is Corrine Cooper Peyton, Max's former fiancee. When Max arrives in Florida, Cori is not happy to see him; but she knows he will be good at his job. Someone has threatened Cori's life...probably the same someone who killed her husband.

This is the second book in St. Claire's Bullet Catcher series. The lead characters are both smart and likeable. The supporting characters are well drawn and add to the atmosphere. The story had many twists and turns that kept the reader guessing throughout the book. Even though the heroine has a Too-Stupid-to-Live moment in the middle of the book, the story got back on track quickly. My rating: 4 Stars.
