BOUNTY OF LOVE
by Scotty Cade
(Dreamspinner Books, August 2011, $14.99 softcover)
Zander Walsh wakes up in a hospital to learn that he, his fiancé Darren and his parents were shot by an apparent thief they surprised at his parents' home, and only Zander survived the shooting. As he tries to put his life back together, some bits of information seem to suggest that this was not a random theft, by a planned assassination of his father, an influential senator. FBI agent Jake Elliot is assigned to the case, essentially to shadow Zander and make sure he remains safe, a situation that results in a familiarity that evolves into mutual attraction. As more details about the crime become available, and Jake notices some strange reactions among his FBI superiors, the two find themselves in a confusing and potentially very dangerous situation.
It's a riveting (though occasionally over-the-top and a bit unrealistic) story of corporate greed and political jeopardy, with lots of nail-biting scenes to appease any action junkie. Generally well written, and I'd give it four stars out of five.
