From the Back Cover

In the shadowy world of bounty-hunting, one man tracks down the most dangerous prey of all—a woman…


One of the best manhunters in the business, Jake King usually chases fugitives on the run. But now he’s been hired to protect a beautiful private eye who’s flirting with danger. Her name is Angela, and the last thing she wants is hired muscle getting in the way of her investigation. But this time she’s so deep undercover, she could use all the muscle she can get her hands on…


Jake agrees to play by Angela’s rules—and lay low while she gets close to one of the deadliest crime lords to have entered the States. But the closer Angela gets to her target, the closer she feels to Jake. As her bodyguard, he has more than just a professional interest in her body—and he’ll do anything to keep her safe. But Angela is playing a dangerous game with a criminal mastermind who can make any woman his slave. And she could be next…

Lorie O’Clare’s novels are:

“Dangerous and sexy… packed with sensuality and suspense.”

More About the Author

Lorie O'Clare was born in 1965 in San Diego, CA. She's the oldest of three children and for the first part of her life traveled with her family, living in many Midwestern states, Iowa, Missouri, Indiana and finally Kansas. She graduated from high school in 1983 as a junior and began her college life at age 17. She received a double major in English and Political Science in 1991. Although her original intentions were to go on to law school, and she went as far as taking the LSAT, being a lawyer wasn't in the writing for Ms. O'Clare.

The same year she graduated from the Univ. of KS. she also married. Ten months later she gave birth to her first son. Her second son was born in 1994 and her third son in 1996. Although she wanted a daughter, this was also a plan of hers that would never happen. Six months after her third son was born she had a hysterectomy.

Her marriage lasted ten years with an amiable parting. During those years, Lorie began reading every romance she could get her hands on. Times were hard and she went through every romance novel her library had, then found very cheap book clubs and received new romance novels in the mail each month. The Internet also entered Lorie's life during this time and she made on line friends with similar interests to hers.

Lorie continued with her passion for reading, merging into other genres when she was convinced she'd read every published romance novel out there. While reading she often experienced the sensation that she could have made the story better. She began writing, purely for her own satisfaction. In those early years, when her boys were young and she was newly divorced, Lorie wrote eight full length novels. All but one of those novels would later be published.

In 1998, Lorie took the push from her on line friends and tried publishing her first novel, a children's story called Dolls Of Tashan. She printed manuscripts on her word processor and mailed them out as often as she could afford the postage. The rejection letters were painful but she kept every one of them, first in one spiral notebook, then eventually adding another, and finally a third. In 2003, Lorie published her first book with a very small epublisher called Amber Quill Press. The book wasn't her children's story but a romance novel. To this day she has not published Dolls of Tashan, the first book she ever wrote.

Later that same year, a good friend encouraged Lorie to try writing erotic romance. Lorie had a completed novel ready to submit. Instead of sending it to her current epublisher, she submitted it to a larger epublisher called Ellora's Cave. Although this was an erotic romance publisher and Lorie's novel was a simple romance, with little more than a chaste kiss, Ellora's Cave contracted the book and assigned an editor who taught Lorie how to write erotic romance. The book contracted was In Her Blood, a werewolf novel. Her new editor suggested she write a short story and turn the werewolves into a series. Lorie did this and her first book published with Ellora's Cave was Pack Law in October, 2003.

Today Lorie O'Clare has published over 60 books. She still writes for Ellora's Cave. In 2008 she sold her first book to St. Martins, which took her name into mass market publishing. Today Lorie has two books out with St. Martins with six more scheduled to release over the next couple of years. She also sold a book to Kensington Press in 2008. Currently she has two books out with Kensington and plans to continue writing for them as well.

Lorie writes full time, lives with her teenage boys, her two dogs, Dude, her Boston Terrier, and Lady, her Beagle. She also has two American Short hair cats, Ernie and Tigger. She plans on writing until she dies. "There is nothing more fulfilling than creating a new world and walking through it with the people who live there," she says, as her fingernails tap away at the keyboard.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
King Fugitive Apprehension is a family affair. The father Greg (see Play Dirty) opened KFA just after retiring from LAPD; his two sons Jake and Marc (see Get Lucky) as well as other relatives quickly signed on too.

Chicago based private investigator James Huxtable comes to Los Angeles to hire KFA to protect his undercover partner, his daughter Angela from the game player nasty Mario Mandela and the slave juice drug. Jake met Angela in Mexico so though he prefers being the bounty hunter, he agrees to protect Huxtable's daughter. Posing as Angela Torres, she walks a thin wire between bringing down Mandela and becoming his slave.

The third Bounty Hunter tale (see Get Lucky and Play Dirty) is an entertaining thriller that continues the overarching theme involved in the game and slave juice, but also contains an enjoyable albeit over the top of the Willis Tower romantic suspense story line. Loaded with action while starring a likeable lead pair supported by their respective families, fans will appreciate this tense novel while staying hungry for more KFA thrillers.

The story is a much slower pace and not as intriguing, then the first two books in this series. I had to put the book down because of the boring dialog beteween the Angela and Jake and after the killing of Marcos father very frustrating read for me.

I liked this book but just really couldnt get into it all that much. I liked the characters but just felt like the story line dragged on and was kind of boring.

Angela Huxtable is on an undercover mission to bring down one of the United States deadliest crime lords. As a private eye Angela knows what she's doing but this case has challenged her like no other. Angela and her father have been working as a team on this undercover operation. When her father is called away on another case he enlists the help of the one of the best fugitive hunters around.

Jake King is good at his job and he knows it. Womanizing is in his blood but there is one woman that left such an impression he can't stop thinking about her. When he gets the call that she could be in danger he jumps at the chance to be her backup. She may not be happy to see him again but he doesn't let that faze him. If there is anything that Jake King can do its win over a woman and this woman needs him while she is walking into the arms of danger.

The heat rises as the danger escalates. Angela isn't interested in being Jake's flavor of the week...again. Can Jake become a one woman man? Can Angela and Jake bring down the notorious crime lord with the vicious drug before they lose it all?

Stay Hungry is a sexy page turner! While I truly wish I had read the previous books in The Bounty Hunters series it is not that hard to follow the story. The chemistry between Angela and Jake is so explosive that it is impossible not to feel it. I was not too keen on the slave juice plot because a designer drug that makes a person a slave to someone else is just plain creepy and hopefully implausible but I did like this couple. Jake a known male whore gets a reality check when he finds the woman he can't forget and she promptly gives him the attitude he deserves. I like that Angela is a strong independent woman who gives as good as she gets. The scenes with Angela and Jake are hot and fiery! Stay Hungry is a thrilling read!
