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)
