Book review: Shiver of Fear by author Roxanne St Claire

Shiver of fear is the 2nd installment in Roxanne St Claire's newest series The Guardian Angelinos. The first book in this series is Edge of Sight which i reviewed here a while back when it came out. To get a free taste for this series though you can read a free short story prequel entitled "Taken to the Edge" which introduces you to the two main characters of Edge of Sight and gives you a glimpse into other characters in this series and a taste of what's to come. Click here to read it. I believe it's about 26 pages or so so easy read. Nice way to see if this series is for you. Romantic suspense has turned into my favorite genre these days and Roxanne St Claire's other series The Bullet Catchers is one of my favorite Romantic suspense series. Let's start with a little back cover blurbage shall we?

The legacy that haunts her . . .
The mystery she must solve . . .
A man who threatens to reveal her secrets . . .
and break her heart.

Burned by a failed marriage, former FBI agent Marc Rossi wants back in the investigation game with no emotional strings attached. Taking an assignment for his enterprising Angelino cousins, he heads to Northern Ireland to pry a key piece of evidence from a missing socialite-any way he can. But when the ice queen turns out to be warm, beautiful, and on a secret mission of her own, the job becomes a passionate reminder of what happens when duty and desire mix. The daughter of an infamous fugitive, Devyn Sterling has survived betrayal only to find that her mother has mysteriously disappeared. When her search uncovers secrets, lies, and threats, Devyn and Marc must trust each other when every instinct says they can't . . . and a terrorist wants to make sure they won't live to try.

We meet Marc Rossi and Devyn Sterling in Edge of Sight. Devyn's husband gets murdered in the first book and she takes off in search of her birth mother in Northern Ireland for answers to burning questions about her parentage. She was adopted as a baby and always felt out of place and then she found out who her real parents were and was not happy with what she found out. In this book Marc gets the assignment for the Guardian Angelinos working for the FBI to find Devyn and convince her to get out of Ireland. Marc finds her easily but getting her to leave Ireland is tricky business he finds out. Roxanne St Claire takes you on a wild ride thru Northern Ireland. You feel like you're there and there are so many twists and turns in this plot just when you think you've figured out who the bad guy is as it were you're wrong. I totally did not see the ending for what it was. I was definitely surprised. I like that i must say lol To read a excerpt from this book or check out the other books and characters in this series you can go to Roxanne's website by clicking here. You can also take a peek at her Bullet Catcher series which some of those characters are reported to appear in this series. I give Shiver of Fear 5 out of 5 Modokker Book pick stars! I love a good romantic suspense that delivers the romance, the suspense and some good laughs in the mix as well and Rocki delivers with this book!
