Get Lucky

Lorie O'Clare, St. Martin's Paperbacks, $7.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-312-37216-3

O'Clare's second Bounty Hunter novel (after Play Dirty) has a butt-kicking heroine and enough action to satisfy adrenaline junkies while leaving room for romance. After an unstable childhood, gorgeous London Brooke is content with her orderly life working at the Elk Ski Lodge in Aspen, Colo. Then bounty hunter Marc King shows up at her front desk and forces her to question whether her sheltered existence really counts as living. London isn't sure where her relationship with Marc is heading other than the bedroom, but when they both receive cryptic packages, they have to work together to save their families. If readers can accept occasional plot holes (why exactly do the bad guys want an army of bounty hunters?) and crude language (must Marc refer to London as his "woman"?), they'll find plenty of excitement and passion.
