    Half way through the book and it's just not working for me. The two main characters seem so "smart" but are making rediculously dangerous decisions. I am skipping over quite a bit, but will have to force myself to finish it.

    Morgan is absolutely certain that what happened to her friends is a terrible and highly tragic accident. After all, who would purposely target three young adults who were doing nothing more than looking for animals in a nature preserve? So when she decides to travel out to their last known location to finish the research (and possibly learn more about their deaths) she’s certain there’s no danger to her. Of course, convincing her father of that is impossible so he hires a sexy ex-special ops body guard to watch over his precious daughter. What happens between them however is far more than he ever could have expected in Morgan’s Hunter by Cate Beauman.

    This story definitely fascinated me from beginning to end. Hunter and Morgan live such entirely different lives from each other and from what you would expect, given their place in life. After all, Morgan is filthy rich but prefers to spend her days slogging through the back country with wild animals. Hunter, on the other hand, is a bodyguard who’s often paid to watch out for girls from her circle of life as they head to salons and shopping trips. They’re definitely not prepared for each other but it’s interesting when the two come together. 

    I loved the way that these two individuals had so many flaws and so many problems coming together but they managed to overcome it all in the end. It was amazing how they managed to set aside their differences (which made them seem like real people instead of just fictional people on a page) and make sacrifices to be together. Morgan’s Hunter is a great story of romance and intrigue that will keep you on your toes throughout.

    This is a new to me author, and of course my first book by her and I have to say it will not be my last.  I loved the romance and suspense characteristics.  The characters were developed wonderfully, you almost felt as if you were sitting there watching the scene play out.  I thought I had the bad guy pegged, then I kept guessing, it was great to see it all unravel. I can't wait to keep going in this series.

    I'm always looking for new authors to read, so to find one whose written three enjoyable books was a real treat. Easy reads that are full of romance and suspence. I didn't want to put them down and can't wait to read her next book.

    HOTTT new series for Romance junkies!

    ARC (advanced readers copy)

    Freaking LOVE this series!

    Just when I thought Ethan Cooke was all THAT! (I read book 2 first).

    I loved every bit of of Morgan's Hunter. The moment Hunter is assigned to protect Morgan, the heat is on! Their first encounter immediately embarks on a love/hate relationship.

    Hunter is in for one helluva mission when he realizes Morgan is not the snotty, rich daddy's girl he's used to babysitting. She knocks his socks off *make that his pants* with killer looks and one sweet little bod to go with her hot temper. She's determined, feisty, mouthy, and hell-on-wheels... and he's falling for her. Hard. And fast. And she's going to get them killed if she continues to disobey orders.

    Feeling's mutual. Morgan cannot resist Hunter's sexy-as-hell appeal. But, his all-too-sudden mood swings have her doubting him. Her heart is in his hands and he doesn't even know it, and despite her best efforts to push him away, swallow her unwanted feelings, temptation is far too great. He pushes all the right buttons, and he pisses her off! She wants to hate him, but no matter how hard she tries, he always works his way back in, and Morgan doesn't want him there because that's not a direction she can protect herself from. And that's not an option she wants to take.

    Discovering an illegal operation in the rocky regions where Morgan's best friend's lives were all-too-suddenly ripped away, they face the dangers that could ultimately destroy them both. Their lives are on the line, their hearts dithering, but when secrets are revealed, tempers boil out of control, and control is something Hunter cannot afford to lose. He will do whatever it takes, even if it means breaking her heart, and his, to save her life.

    The journey to survive, the passion and heated scenes, to the slippery and rugged terrain, Morgan's Hunter is thrilling, stimulating, and electrifying with plenty of flame that begs you to keep reading!

    I cannot say enough about The Bodyguards of L.A. County, other than... I WANT MORE! And I'm going to have it! Rumor has it, there are 4 books to the series (maybe more?)! And I want all of them! So good! You won't be disappointed!
