Now You Die (Lucy Sharpe's story! Due for release in September 2008)

Each book in this series can stand on it's own, but you will miss out on some of the bonds and history between these body guards if you start the series in the middle. Every book in the series so far is excellent. I recommend starting from the top.

Five stories strong, The Bullet Catchers series has never let me down. Roxanne St. Claire writes modern mystery- thrillers that are vivid enough to make you "see" the scenes unfold. All the while, she develops a romance that is both steamy and emotional. Her heroes are big, powerful, intelligent (something I personally find very hot in a man), and completely loyal to their job and their loved- ones. Put these page- turning traits together and you have "The Bullet Catchers".

In "First You Run", our hero is an Australian charmer complete with knee- weakening dimples. Adrien Fletcher, or "Fletch" to his friends, is known for being fearless. Raised by Aborigines in "The Bush", there is very little about the modern world that can frighten him.

Adrien's principle is a highly intelligent college professor, author, and doctor of Maya history. Miranda Lang is ready to launch a book- signing tour to promote her new controversial non- fiction novel. Her book shatters a myth that many Maya historians believe to be true. One man in particular wants to make sure that Miranda's book fails to reach the public. He'll scheme, threaten, and even commit murder to meet his goal.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When Adrien Fletcher agrees to help his best mate, ousted Bullet Catcher Jack Culver, find a baby adopted through a black-market ring thirty years ago, he never dreams he'd be thrust into the world of Maya culture. He's given a name - Miranda Lang - and a clue - she was marked with a tattoo. Together, they may be able to solve a thirty-year-old murder.

Miranda, an anthropology professor at Berkley, is promoting her book which debunks the theory that the Mayans predicted December 21, 2012 as the end of the world. But someone is out to stop her. Signings are disrupted or mysteriously cancelled, books disappear by the case and her life is threatened.

If Miranda is indeed the adoptee Fletch is looking for, he must keep her safe from the lunatics who seem determined to stop her. And if along the way his attraction to Miranda turns into more, he'll just have to deal with that too.

Fletch, a former member of the Tasmanian Special Ops, is the most engaging Bullet Catcher to date. He's fearless in the face of danger and known for his ability to get a woman horizontal and naked in under five seconds. Miranda is his intellectual match, but she's a woman hounded by fears. Who better to help her conquer them than Fletch? Watching these two in action was pure bliss.

Sexy, thrilling, spellbinding, romantic - FIRST YOU RUN cover all the bases of a great romantic suspense while including a little history and geography lesson as well. The plot and characters hooked me from the first page and kept me hooked until I finished at four in the morning. This book - especially the hero - was well worth losing a night's sleep.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Aussie Security agent Adrien is between assignments and agrees to help a friend find the adopted daughter of a woman who has spent the last three decades in prison for a murder she didn't commit and now needs a bone marrow transplant due to cancer. The only distinguishing characteristic is a tattoo somewhere on the daughter's body. After quickly going through the first several gals on his list, he comes across author Miranda, an authority on all things Mayan, who is being targeted by an extremist group. With a couple days to kill, he provides protection for Miranda and quickly falls under her spell and realizes she has no idea she was adopted, nor does she appear to have a tattoo. Can he move on to the next candidate and leave the woman he is suddenly falling for in the lurch?

St. Claire has penned a sexy new entry in the Bullet Catchers series, and this one has an open end, which could be good or bad depending on the reader. I personally like for stories to get resolved in a single novel so I don't have to wait several months to find out how it all turns out, so I was disappointed in that respect. But her heroes are always sexy as hell, her writing first rate, and her plots are always intriguing.

Roxanne St. Claire's First You Run will keep you on the edge of your seat from page one.

Bullet Catcher Adrien Fletcher wants to help a friend find a missing daughter that was put up for adoption many years ago. He convinces his boos Lucy Sharpe to let him use their resources on his own time to locate the grown woman. Thirty years ago this child was marked with a tattoo somewhere on her body. Adrien is willing to do anything to help his friend. The first name on his list is Dr. Miranda Lang.

Dr. Miranda Lang, Maya expert is out promoting her new book about the ancient civilization when trouble occurs at her first book signing. Seems there are a few fanatics that don't like what her book represents. A handsome stranger takes her to safety when the crowd becomes unruly. Miranda is taken with Adrien Fletcher and agrees to a dinner date. She agrees as well to the protection that Adrien is offering but she does not know his true motives.

Adrien is trying to find that illusive tattoo and at the same time trying to keep her safe. She is getting under his skin in more ways then one. Will Miranda continue to be with him once she discovers the truth?

First You Run is another thrill a minute read in the bullet catcher series. Adrien and Miranda send sparks off of every page. You will want to know what makes them who they are and each new discovery is a delight.
