From Publishers Weekly
A sparkling combination of Southern charm and sexy pyrotechnics, the second book in JoAnn Ross's Callahan Brothers trilogy (following Blue Bayou) jazzes up a familiar formula. Having spent the last few years chasing down a serial killer, FBI agent Finn Callahan is less than thrilled when he's forced to take a leave of absence, but his return to his hometown of Blue Bayou, La., couldn't have been more timely. The cast of River Road, a popular prime-time soap, has descended upon the town and begun filming at a nearby mansion, and the show's gorgeous star, Julia Summers, is in need of a bodyguard. The romance between the by-the-book agent and strong-willed actress crackles, and their verbal sparring keeps the narrative moving at an energetic clip. Readers who have read the first book in this trilogy will be heartily entertained; those who haven't will rush out to buy it after savoring this delightful entry.

In the skillful and satisfying sequel to Blue Bayou [BKL Ap 1 01], Finn, after being temporarily suspended from the FBI for beating a serial killer, goes home, where his brother (and Blue Bayou mayor) Nate inveigles him into bodyguard duty for a soap opera actress, Julia Summers. The series is being filmed in the family's historic house, and the star is receiving threatening letters. To say that the two protagonists are oil and water is a vast understatement. Julia is the outgoing, beautiful daughter of two former hippies turned successful artists, whereas Finn, strong, handsome, and silent, is the stoical older brother who kept the Callahans together after their father was killed. At first he has a hard time distinguishing Julia from her character in the soap; then he has trouble fighting their mutual growing attraction. The inevitable happens, but not before a stalker takes a shot, and Julia almost walks out of Finn's life for good. With its emotional depth, Ross' tale will appeal to Nora Roberts fans. Mary K.
