“To Catch a Thief . . . For Keeps!”
It takes honey to catch a thief – or is that bees? All I know is, if I were Grace Kelly in that famous movie, I would have left a trail of diamonds for Cary Grant to follow back to my hotel room. So, okay, he was a thief, but what a thief!
Reformed thief Constantine Xenakis could teach Cary Grant a thing or two, but he’s trying to do the right thing for once. It takes a thief to catch a thief, and Con has no doubt Lizzie Dare is the culprit he’s after. Roxanne St. Claire takes us on a rip-roaring ride to romance in “Make Her Pay,” dazzling us with a shipwrecked galleon, legendary Bombay Blue diamonds and treasure seekers with hidden agendas. The only thing missing is a swashbuckling pirate – but St. Claire’s handsome-to-the-max hero will shiver your timbers as well as any lusty buccaneer.
Lizzie may have heard “When a thief kisses you, count your teeth,” but when Con’s around, it’s not her teeth she needs to worry about, it’s her clothes – and her heart. She’s burning, wobbly and naked within seconds of their first meeting. Is it any wonder she’s at a loss for words when confronted with a huge, dark, naked and (minor detail) extremely furious stranger? It wasn’t her fault she thought he was a pirate or a rapist when he caught her stealing treasures that were hers by right – she’d never have thrown acid at Con if she’d realized he was the new diver on the team!
Teaming up with Lizzie after she damn near scarred him for life is just common sense, but now Con can’t get the image of her naked body out of his head. He has to bring in the booty Lizzie and everyone else is after, even if it does belong to her family – completing the mission is his only chance to succeed as a Bullet Catcher. As long as Con can convince the sexy thief he’s on her side, he can save his career and her oh-so-tempting ass.
Fans of the sensational Bullet Catchers series already know that Roxanne St. Claire delivers unforgettable heat along with non-stop action. In “Make Her Pay,” she keeps us guessing “whodunnit,” yet there’s never any doubt that Con and Lizzie will end up, well, as thick as thieves. Take a deep breath before you dive in, because once you start reading, you won’t want to come up for air until you reach the end. Fasten your life jacket and --

Roxanne St. Claire shakes up our expectations for a romance in "Make Her Pay" -- instead of a slow seduction, Con and Lizzie are buck naked (or is it butt naked?) before they've exchanged names. It's not mad, passionate sex, though -- it's our hero's protective instincts coming to the fore. Why is it that acts of strength and caveman-like "Don't worry, Jane -- Tarzan take care of you" behavior can be so romantic in a book, whereas in real life a guy who pulled a stunt like that would likely get kneed in the nuts? What does that say about us? (Not that I would claim to speak for all women -- I'm just sayin'.)
