Nine Livesby Sharon Sala
Synopses & Reviews
Bounty hunter Cat Dupree first cheated death when she was thirteen. The second time left her orphaned and scarred. And the only thing that will diminish her lust for revenge is finding the man who left her for dead as she watched him murder her father. Every job she takes is an opportunity to invade the criminal world that hides the tattooed man who ruined her life. And she hopes to hunt him down on her current mission into the rugged deserts of Mexico, where there is no law to watch her back.
Without her knowledge, bondsman Wilson McKay is on the same job, and trailing Cat is the fastest way to find his man. He's willing to share resources--and the reward--especially if that means getting to know the lonely woman beneath Cat's tough, take-no-prisoners exterior. Life's taught Cat that the surest way to land on her feet is to work alone, but Wilson might be the man to change her mind--when they're not competing for jobs or ready to kill each other.
"Sala's latest romantic thriller is a well-written, fast-paced ride, marred only by an implausibly pat resolution. Sala's protagonist, attractive Dallas bounty hunter Cat Dupree, has borne both physical and mental scars from the age of 13, the result of a savage attack by an unknown, tattooed man who left Cat with a slashed throat and a dead father. When the only close friend in her life, private secretary Marsha Benton, disappears, Cat devotes herself to confirming her suspicions: that pregnant Marsha was killed by her powerful CEO boss, with whom she'd been having an affair. Cat finds help in a fellow bounty hunter, a charming lady's man named Wilson McKay, but her all-business, go-it-alone style means the growing romantic feelings between them aren't exactly a welcome distraction. A twisted trail of clues and danger take them over the Mexican border and through the desert before Cat can get justice for her friend, but the conclusion turns on an unbelievable and utterly predictable coincidence, a frustrating move in an otherwise rousing formula piece."
