However, someone steals a valuable object belonging to Kristina's dad followed by the snatch of the child. Raquel plans to retrieve both safely.
These are four fun Christmas romances that will have readers home to finish a novella a night.
Linda Lael Miller's "Christmas of the Red Chiefs" has a traditional tone and an endearing family atmosphere. Joe Courtland is a real keeper.
Catherine Mulvany's "Once upon a Christmas" is a magical, flirty tale.
My favorite stories, though, are Julie Leto's "Meltdown" and Roxanne St Claire's "You Can Count On Me." The sexy, exotic characters are absolutely scrumptious.
Plus, St Claire adds a tingling thrill to the Christmas season with a fabulous New York setting, a gorgeous, passionate foreigner, and a bullet catcher heroine. (I've been anticipating the arrival of a female bodyguard, and I wasn't disappointed)
Overall, this is a fun read that's definitely a terrific jump-start to the holiday season.
Roxanne's characters are always full of heat, heart, spunk, charm and her latest bodyguard Raquel Durand is no exception. There is a scene in the limo with a sexy Russian and some vodka that will knock your socks off!
If you haven't read any of the series, here's a profile of Raquel from the author's website:
"Raquel Durant is about to get the promotion of her dreams. She's worked for three years as Lucy's right hand investigator, helping run The Bullet Catchers while she launched extensive background checks on suspects, tracked missing people and generally Made Things Happen like no one else. But Raquel is ready for field work and in December, she gets her first assignment. However, nothing about the "simple" job is simple...starting with the sexy fomer KGB agent who takes Raquel on a search for missing Faberge eggs and teaches her an entirely new technique for drinking vodka. And it doesn't involve...clothes. "
Again, Roxanne St.Claire has delighted this reader and fan of The Bullet Catchers! You won't want to miss this entertaining series.
