There are so many good reasons to read "Hunt Her Down ," the pick for our H2H Online Romance Reader's Circle, Sept. 29!* 'Cause, Roxanne St. Claire's outdone her already impressive body of work with this relentlessly appealing and scorching-hot piece of suspenseful romance entertainment.
But all you really need to know about why you should score "Hunt Her Down" takes place in a little tool shed, where lovers reunited after 14 years are locked in close quarters, loaded with unrelieved attraction and so on edge sensually that an erotic whisper from one of them leaves the pair in greater danger from each other than the bad guys they're dodging.
OK. So maybe you're one of those exacting readers who wants details to recommend a book, not just an arrow pointed toward the "good parts."
For you, I offer Dan Gallagher and Maggie Varcik. Dan was an FBI agent trying to bring down a drug cartel when he met, wooed, bedded and left in the lurch pretty 18-year-old Maggie. Maggie was a troubled runaway, drug-runner's squeeze and young woman who thought the guy she loved - who shockingly turned out to be an FBI narc - died when he busted a raid on her boyfriend's drug op using info she'd inadvertently fronted him.
Fourteen years later, Dan - sans his undercover disguise, now a prestigious Bullet Catcher bodyguard - is checking up on Maggie, since her ex-drug-runner boyfriend's out of prison. Once Dan "meets" Maggie again and feels stirrings of what he identifies as the old cravings - certainly nothing more to a confirmed bachelor - he doesn't bother cluing in Maggie that he's her former undercover lover.
Maggie's been doing pretty well since she ran away from the unhealthy lifestyle she lead at 18. But she's sorely tempted to indulge in a little "me time" with Dan, the hot guy who's shown up at the bar and grill she took over when her husband died years before.
Maggie's not sure she should give an inch to this man who makes her feel so sensually alive - and reminds her of the wild, heady days she shared with a lover she's better off forgetting. But when bad things start happening to people she loves, Maggie begins to think she can depend on Dan to help protect her - until a rude awakening that causes her to realizes she may be placing her trust, and her life, in the hands of a man who left her once before when the heat was on.
You think you know "bodyguard" romances? Until you've checked out a Bullet Catcher like "Hunt Her Down " -- with its too-hot-for-his-own-good hero who needs a good dope slap to the heart, and an earthy, making-her-own-way-and-surviving heroine you'd love to have as a best girlfriend - honey, you ain't read nothing "bodyguard" yet.
What do you like about "bodyguard" romances? What are your fave Roxanne St. Claire books? What are your fave "trapped" scenarios, in which a h/hn are forced together in close quarters like Dan and Maggie were?
