Book Description

A hot-blooded bodyguard. An heiress worth a cool billion. And one dangerous attraction.... Roxanne St. Claire delivers a heart-pounding thrill ride in the second Bullet Catchers novel!


Max Roper never lets emotion get in the way of his job -- not since the tragic shooting that killed his fiancée's father. Now the former DEA agent is a Bullet Catcher, and he's managed to block out Cori's bitter goodbye -- and their sizzling passion. Those dangerous desires come back with a vengeance when Max is assigned to protect a recently widowed heiress: who turns out to be Cori. But Max must also discover his ex's dark secret...and they both know she can't hide anything from him.


Her luxury lifestyle suggests that Cori has gone from being a trophy wife to a merry widow, but nothing could be further from the truth. Suspicious of her billionaire husband's sudden death, she hires a bodyguard. But her protector is the one man who can melt her every defense -- the one man she blames for her deepest sorrow, the one man whose six-feet four-inches of solid muscle ignites reckless passion in her. And as they close in on a killer who hides in plain view, their high-stakes affair could cost her everything...including her life.

By Cassie
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
When Max Roper is given a new assignment by Lucy Sharpe owner of Bullet Catcher's he doesn't show one sign about how he feels about it. The reason is the assignment is to protect Mrs Corinne Peyton who was once engaged to Max nearly three years previously. Their relationship ended when Cori assumed and Max didn't correct her that he was the reason her father got killed on an assignment.

Max arrived at her home the night of a benefit and her stepson Billy shows up angry about Cori inheriting everything from his father. Max escorts him home and tells him to leave Cori alone. This is not the only excitement to occur in Cori week, later someone shoots at her in one of the houses in the island while she is with Max and later on when she is at her masseuse, someone comes in and knock her out after they threaten her life. Max is seriously concerned now for her and he asked his associates to investigate the death of Cori husband William.

Cori also discovered that William might have been cheating on her and this upsets her because in her own way she loved William. Max is suspicious of everybody in Cori's life from her best friend Breezy to Swen her masseuse. Cori and Max have a lot of history and Max even considers that Cori could have murdered her husband but his friend Dan finds evidence to prove Cori is the next one on the hit list.

As more and more threats are made on Cori's life Max rushes to find who really wants her dead and why...

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrills, Twists, Turns! A Hot Read with an Incredible Cast of Characters! 20 Jun. 2006
By Marilyn Shoemaker - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Thrill Me to Death is an exceptional addition to Roxanne St. Claire's Bullet Catcher series. It's emotionally packed with all sorts of twists, turns and danger not to mention the sensual tension and scenes between the main characters Max and Cori.

If you've read St. Claire's books Max Roper, first appeared in Tropical Getaway, her debut novel. Max left the DEA and followed his best buddy, Dan to the security and personal protection business as a Bullet Catcher. Max also makes an appearance in the first book of the series, KILL ME TWICE One gets the impression that Max is not only handsome and strong but shows absolutely no emotion. Wrong..... in this book, the reader will absolutely fall in love with this man who keeps to himself, holds back and will soon have the answers revealed in his past.

Enter Cori Peyton, Max's Bullet Catcher assignment. Max is assigned to protect Cori and is hired to be her bodyguard and security expert. They have a past history, at one time they were in love and hoped to marry. However, things happened and Cori ended up marrying an older millionaire who has died and his death is being questioned and Cori's now in possible danger. Max is to sort this out and put all personal feelings aside.

I enjoyed THRILL ME TO DEATH due to the danger, the cast of characters and of course the romance. Max and Cori's love story is so full of passion and tension and how they find their way back to each other is an emotional rollercoaster ride. There are so many twists and turns to this very exciting romance/suspense and again St. Claire has written a winner!

There are other interesting characters, her stepson, attorney, best friend Breezy and a cast of other Bullet Catcher's. This is a book I've been waiting for since I read KILL ME TWICE and I wasn't disappointed. I can't wait for the next in this Bullet Catcher series. Again, Roxanne St.Claire has written an entertaining and steamy story, just in time for the beach!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrill Me To Death 23 July 2006
By M. Nix - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Max is a bodyguard. He works for the Bullet Catchers Bodyguard Service. His current assignment is guarding Corinne Peyton. Cori's husband, billionaire William Peyton, died three months ago but Cori doesn't believe it was from natural causes. Max has been told to not only guard Cori, but to find out as well if she could have killed her husband. The fact that he and Cori were once lovers may or may not be an advantage.

Cori is in danger. Discovering who the threat is proves difficult though. Cori's stepson Billy is harassing her, and someone has tried to kill her once already. Some of her friends are acting strangely as well. Max and Cori discover a suspicious signature and they start an investigation of their own. The more they discover, the more questions they have.

As they get closer to figuring out who killed William and why, Cori discovers the truth about why her relationship with Max truly ended. If they can't find the killer before he finds Cori, they may lose the last chance at a life together.

Thrill Me To Death is fantastic! It's sexy and thrilling. I was completely engrossed from start to finish. Cori and Max are very loving and passionate together. Max is gorgeous and all alpha male. Cori is beautiful, kind and generous.

Thrill Me To Death is an excellent romantic suspense story. It kept me guessing until the end, and the romance is hot and sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than book 1! Max Roper is a dream hero. Cori is a smart but vulnerable heroine. Their love story is gripping. 28 Oct. 2007

The Bullet Catcher Series:

Kill Me Twice

Thrill Me To Death

Take Me Tonight

Roxanne St. Claire has me hooked. Her hero characters, known as The Bullet Catchers, are incredible. Each has a unique personality, an interesting past, and a noble heart. None would hesitate to sacrifice himself for his client. These men are intelligent and powerful, yet still ordinary guys who make each other laugh with good- natured taunting.

St. Claire really hit a home run with "Thrill Me To Death". Her Bullet Catcher, Max Roper, has everything that makes a woman melt. Not only is he towering in size, he has a big heart as well. His friends and clients don't see it, because he hides behind a "tough guy" facade. His one true love left him 5 years ago, taking the laughter from his soul and the smile from his face.

Now Max has been assigned the job of protecting the very woman who turned his heart upside- down. His hardest task is keeping his feelings out of the picture. However when the two see each other, 5 years melt away as if they had never parted. Both are wary of rekindling their relationship, but their need for one another is undeniable. Max, known as "Mad Max" to his fellow Bullet Catchers, is brought to knees. He finds himself throwing caution to the wind, confessing to Cori that he accepted the assignment of protecting her because he never stopped loving her. Although Cori had pushed herself to move on by marrying a different man after their break- up, she admits to Max that she thought of him every single day.

Cori is caught in a web of lies. All of the people who matter in her life eventually become suspects in the murder of her late husband. That same murderer is now targeting Cori. After losing both her father and Max 5 years ago, Cori clings to every friend she has. She can't believe that any of them could be a killer. Max must keep her close to guard her life as he works to solve the mystery. The thought of losing her again is unbearable.

I never wanted to put this book down. Not only were the characters and the love story great, but the mystery was excellent as well. St. Claire kept me guessing. It has been a very long time since I read a crime story that was not predictable. Every time I thought I had figured out who the murderer was, she threw in twists that changed my mind. I was enthralled with this tale. I can't wait to read the next in the series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrilled me.... 2 Jun. 2012
By Jonetta (Ejaygirl) - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Lucy Sharpe assigns Max Roper to protect the widow of billionaire William Peyton following his death and to find out if she had anything to do with his death of natural causes. What complicates matters is the widow...she's Max's ex lover, Corrinne (Cori) Cooper Peyton, and they didn't leave on good terms. Needless to say, Cori's not happy to see Max when he shows up for duty.

I liked both Max and Cori individually and as a couple. She's smart and sharp but without an edge. He's smoldering and brooding but clever and quick witted. Max has good instincts, as does Cori, but both let their relationship get in the way of smart thinking a time or two in this story. There are two suspense elements in the story: was William murdered and is someone out to harm Cori. The clues related to both intersect late in the story and it keeps the tension heightened. Max and Cori's developing romance doesn't overshadow the mystery and suspense and vice versa. There's a good balance of the two and both are well done.

There are some plot issues that require a suspension of belief at times but they are not big enough issues to affect the enjoyment of the story. I quickly got past Cori's occasional too stupid to live moments because they really were out of character and she is so likable. While the clues are all here, I missed guessing the villain in a large way, which makes this book even more compelling.

I'm really liking this series and plan to go the distance. This one kept me hooked until the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love those Bullet Catchers 12 Sept. 2006
By Judy - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Roxanne St. Claire writes another thriller in her Bullet Catcher Series... Thrill Me To Death.

Bodyguard Max Roper never lets his feelings come out when he is on the job. He has his work cut out for him on his latest assignment. Max has been assigned to watch former lover Cori Peyton. Max and Cori's relationship ended very badly years ago. Now Max has to guard Cori and try not to give into their sizzling passion.

Cori Peyton is now a wealthy widow. After her relationship with Max ended she met and fell in love with an older man. Since her husbands recent death she has been receiving death threats. Enter Max who still makes her heart pump furiously. Cori must place her life and trust in Max's hands in order to survive.

Thrill Me To Death is an intriguing, fast paced story. It will keep you guessing who is out to harm Cori. The passion between Cori and Max just sets the pages on fire. I can't wait to read the next installment in this series.
