A Time To Die
A Time to Die by Beverly Barton
Ten years ago, Black Ops commando Deke Bronson's bullet left up-and-coming journalist Lexie Murrough paralyzed. It's taken years of painful physical therapy to bring Lexie back from the brink. And Deke is just grateful that she has no memory of his part in the incident that left her injured and him emotionally scarred. He's tried to put the past behind him, leaving the military and joining the Dundee Agency, but he's never been able to forgive himself.…
When Lexie, now head of an international charity organization, begins receiving terrifying threats from the son of the dictator killed during that long-ago operation, it's Deke who's assigned to keep her safe from harm.
Maybe it's fate's way of giving him another chance, but falling for Lexie isn't supposed to be part of the deal. And what if she finally discovers the truth?

This book was pretty good. Not awesome like some of her others but pretty good. There were lots of things that i liked about it, nothing that I hated, but nothing that I absolutely loved either. I liked that I did not know who the bad guy was (had an inkling but was not sure) . I liked that there was some angst with Deke and his feelings (but not whiny) for shooting Lexie but he did not dwell over it too much. He got over it to get the girl. Steamy, but not as hot as some of her other books. All around decent book, but nothing I am jumping up and down and saying "go buy this book".

hey there Kris :D

Happy New Year!!

Can you tell me which books by this author you liked the most? I've seen her on the shelves at the bookstore, but never knew which ones were good and which ones were not :P

Happy New Year to you as well.

nath, I enjoy her suspense books, I have not read many of her Protector series (most of her little Harlequins are in this series). Of the suspense books three are linked, The Fifth Victim, As good as Dead and The Last to Die. The rest are stand alone. I have enjoyed most of them. If you are buying I would probably steer clear of The Dying Game and this one.

Of her older books i have read very few but one that i did read that I enjoyed very much was Lone Wolf's Lady (if you want to borrow it, let me know and i will send it to you).

jenster, hey girl. It was a decent read but nothing great. I would probably not pay full price for it if I bought it at all. I got mine from the library.
