As a Marine and a sharpshooter, Wade Cordell has seen more than his share of violence and death. Currently an independent contractor with Bullet Catchers, an elite security and investigation firm, he's feeling a little burnt-out after a recent "messy" assignment. So when Lucy Sharpe, the head of the organization, offers him a full- time position, he immediately says no. But then Lucy suggests that Wade take on an easy job while he thinks things over; he'll travel to the Caribbean, find beautiful blonde investment banker Vanessa Porter, and bring her back from vacation to meet her birth mother. Eileen Stafford had triplet girls and gave them up shortly before being convicted of murder. She's now very ill in prison and needs a bone marrow transplant, so Bullet Catchers is tracking down her daughters. Wade may need to use some persuasion to convince Vanessa to cut short her trip to help a total stranger, but other than that, the job seems simple enough.

But Vanessa Porter isn't on a vacation, she's on a mission. Her friend Clive Easterbrook has disappeared somewhere in the islands, and she's worried about his mental state, as he's prone to depression. Like a hurricane, Vanessa is storming through Clive's last-known whereabouts, demanding answers to her questions. When a handsome gentleman helps her out of a tight spot, she's grateful but certainly doesn't need a partner. Shocked when Wade explains why he's sought her out, Vanessa quickly recovers and uses her Wall Street wiles to make a deal: If Wade helps her find Clive, she'll go to meet Eileen. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Wade is incredibly sexy and there's a heat between them that has nothing to do with the tropical climate!

Their search begins to uncover some unsettling details about Clive's recent activities, however. They may be in more danger than Clive as they draw the attention of some people who may not want him to be found...ever. Both Vanessa and Wade must open their carefully guarded hearts and trust each other if they're going to make it back to the states alive.

This latest entry in the Bullet Catchers series will grab readers from the first page and not let go! Vanessa has some hard edges that Wade has to smooth down, and the friction between them heats up the pages. At the same time, there's also intrigue -- both personal and professional -- back at Bullet Catchers headquarters, related to Eileen Stafford and her murder conviction. The heady combination of romance and suspense will leave readers breathless and eagerly anticipating the next installment.
