Book Description

1 Sep 2011 Guardian Angelinos (Book 3)
Private investigator Vivi Angelino loves living life on the edge, but stepping into the shoes of a movie starlet to bait a serial killer isn't just a thrill . . . it's a ticket to the big time for her fledgling security firm. That is, as long as a certain risk-averse FBI agent stays out of her way-and out of her fantasies. Assistant Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang isn't above using his well-worn rulebook to stop Vivi's latest walk on the wild side. But when they learn her client is involved in something far more insidious than bad acting, Vivi and Colt must work together despite the electrifying attraction arcing between them. For each new clue is bringing them closer to a high-profile crime with a dark and deadly truth at its core . . . and a cold, calculating murderer with nothing left to lose.

If you have not read any St Claire books yet then my question to you is WHY??!

The 3rd installment in the Guardian Angelinos series brings us Vivi & Lang's story, I think us Rocki fans have all been waiting to get our hands on 'Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang' ........ And WOW you will not be disappointed.
Vivi's story is a very powerful one, filled with plenty of sexy, funny, tense and sizzlingly moments (especially the lap dance!!); at times I cried with Vivi but also laughed out loud at the sharp wit shared between the two main characters.
If you are going to buy a book today then buy Roxanne St Claire - I promise, You will not be disappointed!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating! 17 Sep 2011
By Maria
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read all of Ms St Claire's books and this series has all of the ingredients to be right up there but it doesn't work for me. I really enjoyed Edge of Sight but Shiver of Fear drove me crazy: the way the story unfolded and what the characters got up to was so daft. But I thought it was maybe a one-off so I'd try again. Unfortunately same feelings all over again though.

In summary, an easy read with lots of hot action but I expected more....

5.0 out of 5 stars Can we make it 10 stars, please? Maybe 100? A 1000??? Thanks! 26 April 2011
By B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
To be perfectly honest, I loved this book so much, it feels that whatever I write is not going to be good enough to make justice to it. Every once in a while, we come across a book that has the perfect balance in plot, character and essence. That's how I felt about Face of Danger, like it was complete, like there was nothing missing to make it perfect.

We met the heroine, Vivi Angelino, two books ago (and loved every bit of her as a secondary character), but in her own book, we find out there's much more to her than meets the eyes. When she offers herself to be a body double to Oscar winner actress she looks remarkably alike, after the winners for the two previous years were murdered, Vivi finds herself neck deep into an investigation that goes far beyond the glitter and glamour of Hollywood, and crosses a the boundary of very personal to herself, and she'll risk her own life to stop the bad guys and make sure justice is met. In this book, it felt to me that every page we uncovered layers of Vivi, things we might never have imagined from her tough girl, kick ass attitude, but, to me, the more I saw of her, the more I loved and admired her character.

Then, there's hero, goody-two-shoes FBI Agent Colton Lang, whom we find to have deep reasons for his rule follower façade. He's against the idea of Vivi taking the case from the start (but, of course, as typical Vivi, she goes against him anyway), but he knows when she wants something, nothing can keep her from it, and realizes trying to stop her is useless, so, when the case ends up in his jurisdiction, he works closely with her to catch the bad guys and make sure Vivi doesn't let her passion get the better of her judgment. The tension between them grows, burns and explodes (literally, a few times! :P) , and Lang finds himself in the position of having to overcome his past if he wants a happy future. Is the spunky, sassy, mouthy skater girl, who turns out to be the perfect girl for him, enough to make him break his own rules and allow himself a shot of happiness?

We can't forget the incredible set of secondary characters, which complete the book giving it even more life and laughs. I think Roxanne St. Claire did an amazing job showing the bonds of family and partnership in the Guardian Angelino series. It's impossible not to love Chessie, Uncle Nino, Zach, and OhMyGosh GABE! They're the perfect addiction to an already strong, fun story. They give the exact right balance to make it perfect. To me, the Rossi/Angelino crew is so real, they're so true, fun, funny, supportive, they're like friends. Calling them characters just doesn't feel right.

I've been a fan of Roxanne St. Claire's book since her Bullet Catchers. I've followed her work, loved her characters for a long time. To me, she outdid herself with this book, giving it depth and heart and light like never before. It's, hands down, my favorite book by her and so, so worth the read. I recommend it to everyone. An amazing, amazing book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just gets better and better... 26 April 2011
By RVAbooklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I honestly don't think I can put into words how much I loved Face of Danger. Vivi Angelino takes on a new client, becoming a body double of an Oscar winning actress. The FBI also has stakes in the actress, as she is connected to a suspected sex trade smuggler. Agent Colton Lang is assigned to protect the actress, but ends up with Vivi, instead.

Colton Lang is sublime. Buttoned down to within an inch of his life, ordered and rule driven, we have been getting glimpses of him from the beginning of the series. In Face of Danger, he just explodes out of the gate, grabbing the reader's attention. There is never a doubt about his agenda and his motivation for his need for rules and control is spelled out early on. Vivi sets his world on edge, flaunting his love for order with her risk taking. But he is drawn to her. As he becomes more and more attracted to Vivi, we feel his anguish and his fear of taking the risk of falling for her.

Vivi Angelino...what a heroine. I have loved her since Edge of Sight. Confident in her skills, striving to bring her firm to the top of the heap of private investigation/protection agencies, Vivi wants to be the best, and throws herself whole heartedly into the growing of her familiy's business. Vivi has a past, though. Her traumatic experience changed her from a cheerleader/ballet dancer adolescent just coming into the exploration of her sexuality to a pierced tomboy who dressed in baggy clothes, doing her best to hide her feminine side. Learning about her trauma was heartbreaking. Watching her overcome her past, with Colt's help, was liberating.

Vivi and Colt together...put on a flame retardant suit to read the love scenes! Consider yourself warned... Jaysus....from the airplane to the bathroom to the wall...I kept expecting the pages to go up in flames! Beyond the omg! sex, these two had a connection and an attraction to each other that read as very real and believable. Instead of Colt giving up his rules or Vivi giving up her need to be herself, they learned to work with each other. Their coming together was not without issues. Both have trust issues, and Colt is scared to take a chance on love. He is totally on board for "no strings" sex, but love? That's a little more than he thinks he can do. Vivi wants the whole package. The sexual tension and the longing these two had for each other was palpable.

This book has lots of twists and turns in the suspense department, some of which I figured out fairly early on, some I didn't see coming until the details were revealed. There is a lot of action throughout, all tightly written to keep the pages turning. Ms. St Claire is a master of this genre, and this is definately one of her best all time efforts.

There is an appearance by Johnny Cristano, of Bullet Catchers fame, at the end. All of the usual suspects are here, and we get a good deal of time with Gabe(please let his book be next!) I am head over heels for this series, can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars What does it take you to forget past pain and let love take control? 29 April 2011
By Mary J. Gramlich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Viviana Angelino took her family's love and turned it into a family owned private security business that is just starting to see growth and expand into other areas with every new family member that comes onboard. Vivi loves what she and her family of misfits do but one small factor of following all the exact rules required to be legit is tripping her up. Especially when complete stickler for rules and regulations, Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang the FBI liaison that she is working with and throwing business her way. Now Colton believes in doing things the right and formal way, which Vivi is anything but, yet he cannot stay away from her and his desire for her, makes no sense since she does not even own a pair of Khaki's. She is nothing like his prior relationships and her looks are over the top nonsense right down to her nose ring and skateboard. Colton knows trouble when he sees it and Vivi is nothing but a bad idea.

However, Vivi does have a striking resemblance to a movie star that is in the path of a serial killer who hates Oscar winners. Vivi steps into the latest winner Cara Ferrari's fabulous strappy sandals and pretends to draw everyone one way while Cara goes another. However, Vivi finds that there is more than one secret hiding beside her in Nantucket and while no one wants to talk, Colton would like to do some investigating of his own one-on-one with Vivi sans any clothing. Colton got lucky being assigned this case and can keep a very special attentive eye on Vivi while trying to prove his muster with the FBI. Occasionally a rule needs to be broken and if Vivi can convince Colton of that, they really might have a great time and possibly a future together. That is after they figure out which was the tunnels go; who this woman is living in Cara's house; and find out who the Red Carpet Killer is. But other than that, this relationship is moving along nicely.

The third book in this series tells the story of the founder of Guardian Angelinos Vivi's story. She needed a great one and this storyline provides it with killers, mysteries, and mayhem along with a great alpha male by her side. Colton may talk as if it is 1954 but he lives in the 21 century and knows how to get the crook and take home the girl all before sundown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Wait 24 May 2011
By MoranReviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Roxanne St. Claire is a bestselling author of twenty-four novels of suspense and romance. In addition to being a four-time RITA nominee, her books have won the National Reader's Choice Award for best romantic suspense for two consecutive years, as well as the Daphne du Maurier Award, the HOLT Medallion, the Maggie, Booksellers Best, Book Buyers Best, several Awards of Excellence, the Aspen Gold and multiple Gayle Wilson Awards of Excellence. Roxanne holds a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Market Communications from UCLA and completed several post-graduate courses in Marketing Management at Harvard University. Prior to launching a full-time career as a novelist, Roxanne worked as a television actress and news reporter, appearing in Bosom Buddies and Laverne & Shirley, and hosting a regional news program in southern California. She then launched a career in public relations and marketing, including seven years as a Senior Vice President for Hill & Knowlton, one of the world's largest communications firms. Roxanne joined the Romance Writers of America in 2000, held a board position in her local chapter and is currently active in three chapters in her home state of Florida. Other titles include: Hunt Her Down, Make Her Pay, First You Run, Then You Hide, Now You Die, and Hit Reply.

Private investigator Vivi Angelino started the Guardian Angelinos security firm, and her new assignment could financially stabilize the company, or bring it down. Vivi loves living life on the edge, but stepping into a starlets shoes to bait a serial killer is a bit much, even for her. FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang follows all the rules, and isn't above trying to stop Vivi in her latest mission. Yet when they learn the client may be involved up to her eyeballs in something far worse than bad acting, they must work together to bring down a calculating killer with nothing left to lose.

This is book three in the Guardian Angelinos series, with Edge of Sight and Shiver of Fear coming before. Though part of a series, these are all stand alone reads. Though I read and loved the other books in the series, this one is my favorite. The sexual tension between Vivi and Colton in previous books made me eager to jump in this one, and it didn't disappoint.

With a touch of "Miss Congeniality" thrown in, this was both humorous and intriguing. It was hilarious to watch skateboard-wielding Vivi get decked out to double as a movie star. And to watch Colton finally give in. The bantering between these two was phenomenal, and the mystery behind the killer and the family was captivating. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars tense romantic suspense 30 April 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Two Oscar winners are murdered by the Red Carpet serial killer. Viviana Angelino realizes she is a near dead ringer for the Best Actress favorite best actress front-runner, Cara Ferrari. Seeing an opportunity for her struggling Guardian Angelinos firm to gain a foothold, she offers her services as a double. Cara accepts but stipulates that Vivi fly to Nantucket on the actress' private plane.

FBI agent Colton Lang is irate with the replacement. At Cara's estate, someone attacks Vivi demanding where she hid the key. Angelino and Lang are bewildered by the assault, but more confusion will follow on the red carpet.

The latest Guardian Angelino romantic suspense thriller (See Edge of Sight and Shiver of Fear) is a tense tale of opposites who fight, fuss and fall in love. The fast-paced story line is loaded with danger and stunning twists as treachery makes the case that it is much more perilous and risky to the lives of the lead pair and others as well as to the respective hearts of Vivi and Colt. Fans will swear they can smell the cacciatore as Roxanne St. Claire provides a taut thriller.
