    What does it take you to forget past pain and let love take control?

    Viviana Angelino took her family's love and turned it into a family owned private security business that is just starting to see growth and expand into other areas with every new family member that comes onboard. Vivi loves what she and her family of misfits do but one small factor of following all the exact rules required to be legit is tripping her up. Especially when complete stickler for rules and regulations, Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang the FBI liaison that she is working with and throwing business her way. Now Colton believes in doing things the right and formal way, which Vivi is anything but, yet he cannot stay away from her and his desire for her, makes no sense since she does not even own a pair of Khaki's. She is nothing like his prior relationships and her looks are over the top nonsense right down to her nose ring and skateboard. Colton knows trouble when he sees it and Vivi is nothing but a bad idea.

    However, Vivi does have a striking resemblance to a movie star that is in the path of a serial killer who hates Oscar winners. Vivi steps into the latest winner Cara Ferrari's fabulous strappy sandals and pretends to draw everyone one way while Cara goes another. However, Vivi finds that there is more than one secret hiding beside her in Nantucket and while no one wants to talk, Colton would like to do some investigating of his own one-on-one with Vivi sans any clothing. Colton got lucky being assigned this case and can keep a very special attentive eye on Vivi while trying to prove his muster with the FBI. Occasionally a rule needs to be broken and if Vivi can convince Colton of that, they really might have a great time and possibly a future together. That is after they figure out which was the tunnels go; who this woman is living in Cara's house; and find out who the Red Carpet Killer is. But other than that, this relationship is moving along nicely.

    The third book in this series tells the story of the founder of Guardian Angelinos Vivi's story. She needed a great one and this storyline provides it with killers, mysteries, and mayhem along with a great alpha male by her side. Colton may talk as if it is 1954 but he lives in the 21 century and knows how to get the crook and take home the girl all before sundown.

    LOVE Vivi & Colt!

    My Review:
    From the very start of this series, Vivi has been a wonderful character. A skater chick with a tough as nails attitude to match, but the brains of an ace investigative reporter tied up into one sexy little bundle. The Guardian Angelinos is her brain-child and she has HUGE plans for this company going big! I couldn't wait for her story, and OMG, it did NOT disappoint! This story was wonderful!!!

    FBI agent, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Colt Lang, showed up in book #2, Shiver of Fear, and it was no secret from the very beginning that he and Vivi simply did not see eye-to-eye. He's a by-the-book, straight-laced kind of guy who wears golf shirts and chinos. She has a nose piercing, wears skate-boarding loose, baggy clothes, and has short spiky black hair. She has no issue with making up the rules as she goes along if it nets the right end-result. He had a former partner and fiance who died because of that same personality flaw. He refuses to fall for another girl like that who will shred his heart when she gets killed. They are both drawn to each other, but they each have their own valid reasons for not wanting to get involved. Unfortunately, (well for them anyway...for the reader, it is pure reading gold) they have been thrown together on the same case working very closely to one another which makes temptation really hard to resist.

    From the word "go", this book is sizzling!! OMG, the scene on the airplane...so incredibly hot...and the whole book is like that!! Absolutely sizzling with scorching sexual chemistry, incredible twists and turns, fantastic suspense, and in the end...just a beautiful love story between two people who cannot be more perfect for each other. I really, really loved this story. Vivi has this tough, in-your-face bravado, but she is really just a marshmallow inside. She has been crushing on Colt a long time, but has NEVER let on about her feelings until she has to distract him from blowing her cover. Then there is no turning back. BUT she has a reason why she has never approached Colt, or any other guy before, and when it all comes out, it's just heartbreaking.


    Colt has loved and lost once. He has absolutely NO DESIRE to ever go through that again and Vivi's impulsiveness terrifies him. But it's her impulsiveness and zest for life with their investigations that snags him over and over. He doesn't want to be drawn to her, but he can't help it. I loved that he lost control when he's around her, even to the point of breaking the rules to keep her safe. That was a wonderful twist with his character and so well-written.


    This entire series, so far, has been absolutely amazingly good!! Roxanne St. Claire is simply an wonderful writer. I cannot wait for more installments in the Guardian Angelinos series!! But while I am waiting, I am adding her other series, The BulletCatchers to my TBR pile!!!

    Worth the Wait

In addition to being a four-time RITA nominee, her books have won the National Reader's Choice Award for best romantic suspense for two consecutive years, as well as the Daphne du Maurier Award, the HOLT Medallion, the Maggie, Booksellers Best, Book Buyers Best, several Awards of Excellence, the Aspen Gold and multiple Gayle Wilson Awards of Excellence. Roxanne holds a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Market Communications from UCLA and completed several post-graduate courses in Marketing Management at Harvard University.

She then launched a career in public relations and marketing, including seven years as a Senior Vice President for Hill & Knowlton, one of the world's largest communications firms.

Other titles include: Hunt Her Down, Make Her Pay, First You Run, Then You Hide, Now You Die, and Hit Reply.

    Private investigator Vivi Angelino started the Guardian Angelinos security firm, and her new assignment could financially stabilize the company, or bring it down. Vivi loves living life on the edge, but stepping into a starlets shoes to bait a serial killer is a bit much, even for her. FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang follows all the rules, and isn't above trying to stop Vivi in her latest mission. Yet when they learn the client may be involved up to her eyeballs in something far worse than bad acting, they must work together to bring down a calculating killer with nothing left to lose.

    This is book three in the Guardian Angelinos series, with Edge of Sight and Shiver of Fear coming before. Though part of a series, these are all stand alone reads. Though I read and loved the other books in the series, this one is my favorite. The sexual tension between Vivi and Colton in previous books made me eager to jump in this one, and it didn't disappoint.

    With a touch of "Miss Congeniality" thrown in, this was both humorous and intriguing. It was hilarious to watch skateboard-wielding Vivi get decked out to double as a movie star. And to watch Colton finally give in. The bantering between these two was phenomenal, and the mystery behind the killer and the family was captivating. Highly recommended.

    a taut thriller

    Two Oscar winners are murdered by the Red Carpet serial killer. Viviana Angelino realizes she is a near dead ringer for the Best Actress favorite best actress front-runner, Cara Ferrari. Seeing an opportunity for her struggling Guardian Angelinos firm to gain a foothold, she offers her services as a double. Cara accepts but stipulates that Vivi fly to Nantucket on the actress' private plane.

    FBI agent Colton Lang is irate with the replacement. At Cara's estate, someone attacks Vivi demanding where she hid the key. Angelino and Lang are bewildered by the assault, but more confusion will follow on the red carpet.

    The latest Guardian Angelino romantic suspense thriller (See Edge of Sight and Shiver of Fear) is a tense tale of opposites who fight, fuss and fall in love. The fast-paced story line is loaded with danger and stunning twists as treachery makes the case that it is much more perilous and risky to the lives of the lead pair and others as well as to the respective hearts of Vivi and Colt. Fans will swear they can smell the cacciatore as Roxanne St. Claire provides a taut thriller.
