Slow Heat

Bounty Hunter, #5

I love reading about the King family and their apprehension agency (bounty hunters). So, I was thrilled to see this series continued and grabbed up this book just as fast as I could. As usual, the story flows and the romance is perfect. Though only the older Kings play a big part in this book, as the “kids” have all moved on, Micah brings a new life to the agency and another character of interest is introduced. But the integrity of the agency is brought into question by Micah’s past and his interest in Maggie, someone who may be covering for her uncle in jail.

Micah and Maggie meet during the apprehension of Maggie’s uncle. The attraction is immediate but Micah knows better than to act on it. He’s only going to be around for another 9 months and Maggie is a forever type of woman. In fact, Micah is only playing a role for a year until he can go back to his real life as an assassin. Maggie is from a large loving family who’s tempers only is matched by how much they care about each other. Her mother is sure that her baby brother is innocent and Maggie’s older brother doesn’t want Maggie around Micah or their uncle’s club. There are lots of reasons not to get together but that’s not going to stop Maggie and Micah. However, when Micah’s past collides with his present, that, may change everything!

This is a fantastic addition to Lorie O’Clare’s Bounty Hunter series. There is lots of action, shooting, caring and suspense as this tale unfolds. Though part of a series, it is not necessary to read the previous books to thoroughly enjoy and love this one. Each can be read separately from the others. However, each is a gem and you’ll want to read them all!

Book Blurb for Slow Heat

As a new trainee at the King family’s bounty-hunting agency, Micah Jones is trying to keep his cool. But his latest assignment—to bring in a night-club owner suspected of money-laundering—heats up fast when he meets the “brains” of the outfit: an irresistibly beautiful bookkeeper who’s resisting arrest. So Micah takes her into custody—by taking her into his powerful arms and not letting go…

Held for questioning but released by police, Maggie O’Malley is still a person of interest—to Micah. And Maggie is interested, too—in his services. With his iron-hard muscles and tough-guy exterior, the Harley-riding bounty hunter is just the man Maggie needs to track down the real crook at the club. A slow-burning attraction ignites a firestorm of insatiable desire—until the secrets of Micah’s past are exposed. Explosive passion now must prove stronger than a history so terrifying it might haunt them forever…
