In the fifth installment of her Bullet Catcher series, bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire shows the art of the deal has never been so dangerous...or so passionate.
When Bullet Catcher Wade Cordell is offered a cushy assignment to track down a woman on vacation in the Caribbean and persuade her to meet her birth mother, the secret ops sharpshooter decides it's the perfect antidote to his stressful job. Except spirited and sassy Vanessa Porter isn't on vacation, she's on a hunt for a friend who has disappeared. Wade's news doesn't faze a woman who swims with the sharks on Wall Street—Vanessa knows she's adopted and has no intention of meeting or helping the woman who gave her up in a black market scheme. But as it becomes clear that her missing friend is deep in hiding and deeper in trouble, Vanessa strikes a shaky bargain with the sexy bodyguard who's an expert at finding people who don't want to be found. How high a price will she have to pay the Bullet Catcher willing to put his life on the line for her? Will she sacrifice her pride ...her heart ...even her life?
Ambitious investment banker Vanessa Porter is hot on the trail of her friend Clive, who has disappeared in the Caribbean. On her heels is sexy Wade Cordell, of the security-for-hire Bullet Catchers: Wade has a plea for Vanessa from the birth mother she has tried to forget, recently incarcerated Eileen Stafford. Wade, who thought catching up with Vanessa and delivering the message would be a cinch, soon struggles to protect Vanessa from people who want to throw her off Clive's trail or worse. Meanwhile, other Bullet Catchers (from St. Claire's First You Run) dig into the truth behind Eileen's arrest. Vanessa is a spitfire of a heroine, dedicated to her friends and passionate about her life, and Wade is the quintessential Southern gentleman warrior. The plot, while disjointed, pulls itself together enjoyably.
