Book of the Week!

This week's featured book is FIRST YOU RUN by Roxanne St. Claire. Can I just say, hunka hunka hunka holy hero Batman! Wow! I'm officially a Bullet Catcher fan. If you haven't been properly introduced to any of Roxanne St. Claire's mega-alpha smokin' hot bodyguards (Bullet Catchers) trust me when I say you're missing something mighty good.

FIRST YOU RUN is a very hot, page-turning suspense. I loved the plot of this book as much as I did the characters. There are some really interesting threads of Maya culture woven throughout, with a touch of shamanism, and even a little Aboriginal wisdom. Miranda, the heroine, is a newly published author and professor at Berkeley. Miranda's book contradicts a doomsday theory that the Maya calendar predicts the end of time. There are people who desperately want to sabotage the promotion of her book, and they don't mind killing her in the process. Of course our Australian god of a hero, Fletch, isn't about to let that happen. Aaaahhhhh! I swear that man's voice could deflect bullets...or melt them. (Believe me that was a necessary digression. Now back to the story.) Fletch is already on a case that Miranda doesn't realize she's a part of. And when she finds out why he orchestrated their first meeting, he knows she'll hate him for it.

This is a very well-written novel. I truly loved, loved, loved it. It's a fast read, and one of the most interesting stories I've gotten lost in, in a while.

To celebrate another fabulous read, I'm going to give away one of Roxanne St. Claire's other Bullet Catcher books, TAKE ME TONIGHT. All you have to do to get your name in the drawing is leave a comment. I will announce the winner tomorrow.

Next week I'll be reviewing THE SINS OF THEIR FATHERS by Emma Wildes and Lara Santiago.
Countdown to Yummy Sunday - 4 days!

Thanks for stopping by, Marie. This is definitely one of those books that is perfect for the beach, or any nice breezy place out in the sun. I'm looking forward to the second book. Oh lord! Did I forget to mention this is book 1 of a trilogy?
