Book 2 in The Guardian Angelinos starts off with cousin Marc Rossi joining in the agency’s quest to land some great jobs ~ with his former cohorts, the FBI. When Marc is recruited on what appears to be the simpliest of tasks ~ simply go to Northern Ireland and get Devyn Sterling to leave ~ the job is too good and easy to pass up. Even if the FBI is being tight lipped ~ and even if they suspect there is more to this job than what the face value is. Heck, how can they pass up the chance to land the FBI as a paying client?
What Marc finds in Devyn Sterling is way more than he expected ~ not the cold, unemotional socialite he thought he’d meet at all, Devyn is a woman who has been so much with her dead husband (if you’ve read Book 1, you know the back story here ) and with the people who had adopted her when she was a baby ~ and now she’s just looking for that elusive ‘something’ to complete her, to make her life ‘more’. Could it the birth mother she’s never known?
Marc and Devyn find themselves pulled into a terrorist operation ~ and their lives in peril everywhere they turn. As they draw closer to one another, and trust begins to build, the connection between the two was something I felt growing with the story. I thought their story was so believable and it made my heart ache for them both ~ while rooting for Devyn to not only get Marc, but to find the answers she seeks. I loved it, and was guessing until the end ~ and guessed WRONG, which doesn’t usually happen for me!!
I’m never dissapointed in Roxanne St. Claire’s books ~ and while I was sad to see The Bulletcatchers end, I’m loving this new series, and am so intrigued by the characters she’s introduced in the big Angelino/Rossi family. I’m hoping we’re looking at a long series of great books here!!
