Beschreibung des Verlags
A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, and a PI are bringing the heat to the New York Times bestselling author’s action-packed series.
Sinners, whores, and sluts beware—your time is at hand: a faceless menace is threatening lingerie models on a cross country tour. Working as a bodyguard for Brodie Operations Security Services, Inc., Ethan Brodie is there to defend and protect.
Ethan’s learned the hard way that beauty is no substitute for character. So even though Valentine Hart is one of the most breathtaking women he’s ever seen, he’s keeping his hands off and his eyes open. Or that’s what he tells himself.
Then one of the models is murdered, and the closer Ethan gets to the answers, the closer he finds himself to Valentine—and the hotter the pressure feels. There’s more to Val—more to the other girls—than he could have guessed. But one is keeping a secret that could kill them all.
Praise for Kat Martin
“Kat Martin is a fast gun when it comes to storytelling, and I love her books.”—Linda Lael Miller, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Martin is a terrific storyteller.”—Booklist
“She dishes up romantic suspense, sizzling sex and international intrigue.”—RT Book Reviews
“[A] master of suspenseful romance . . . Martin doesn't hold back on the page-turning thrills or steamy love scenes.”—Publishers Weekly
Martin (Against the Tide) introduces the members of Seattle's Brodie Operations Security Services (BOSS) in a choppily told romantic thriller about the fierce protectiveness that the strong, handsome heroes feel toward beautiful, complicated women. After the high-class models of LaBelle Lingerie receive threatening notes that escalate to an actual murder, Ethan Brodie takes on the 24/7 protection of model Valentine Hart. The two quickly ignore BOSS's no-fraternization rule under the pressures of close proximity and strong attraction. Martin draws her characters with little moral ambiguity. Her reliable men of action put themselves out to take care of their families while saving their women from villains and sleazeballs; the women worry about the dangerous nature of BOSS's work, but fidelity is never in doubt. Plot shifts and revelations are unsatisfyingly abrupt for those whose focus is on the mystery side of the story, and the lack of repercussions for breaking the company's rules leaves the reader with a sense that the story has been streamlined at the expense of reality.
