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. (July)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
