First You Run, Roxanne St. Claire

 

Bullet Catcher Adrien Fletcher is on a mission to track down a baby given up in a black market adoption thirty years ago.  He has a list of possible names and one tantalizing clue: the infant had been marked with a tiny tattoo.  And since tattoo-hunting will mean getting up close and personal with the women on his list, he’s the perfect man for the job.  But when Fletch meets Miranda Lange, he knows she can never be just a name on his list.  If she’s not his target, he should move on and find the right woman, despite their electrifying attraction.  But Miranda is on her own mission, and every step takes her closer to a deadly trap.  Fletch may be the only man who can protect her…forcing him to choose between duty and desire.

 

Dude!  This book was absolutely fabulous.  Seriously.  Fletch was an alpha male, without being one, if that makes any sense at all.  By that I mean he respected Miranda enough to put his own needs aside to see to hers, all the while protecting her.  As a heroine, Miranda was interesting and smart without being an overly verbal brainiac, and when she and Fletch get together it’s combustible, baby!  I’m holding out for the next book in the series because I’m hoping Ms. St. Claire is at the RWA Literacy signing so I can nab an autographed copy…and even better?  If she is, we’ll be signing in the same row *g*!
