Roxanne St. Claire will keep you on your toes with this novel. Nobody is what they seem and that includes the hero and heroine too.

Constantine Xenakis is a former Navy Seal, one time Bullet Catcher, and thief. He wants to be a Bullet Catcher again and he wants Dan Gallagher’s job as Lucy Sharpe’s right hand man.

His first mission back on the team is a test of his character. The dive site is the El Falcon and it’s rumored that the long lost Bombay blue diamonds are somewhere among the wreckage. He’s to ensure the safety of all treasure found, but can he resist the temptation to keep something for himself?

There’s a thief onboard the Gold Digger. Treasure found on the dive site is going missing. It’s Con’s job to find out who is responsible and stop them. He catches Lizzie Dare red-handed the first night on board, but she insists she was just trying to get documentation about the finds so that Paxton, the client behind the Bullet Catcher case and owner of the finds the diving crew bring up, can’t profit from them illegally and claim they never existed.

It’d be so easy to turn her in and call the job done, but Con decides to hold his peace for now and keep a closer eye on everyone’s, but especially Lizzie’s doings.

Roxanne St. Claire turns up the heat for Make Her Pay. The sexiest scenes, in my opinion, are when Con and Lizzie are showering together in a little cramped space on the boat. Yum. Con’s headspace was particularly fun. Poor guy.

Rating: ★★★★☆

Buy: Make Her Pay (The Bullet Catchers)

Roxanne is a funny person. She hangs out on the blog http://www.murdershewrites.com/ with a lot of other great authors. I haven’t read any of her books yet.

This sounds like a good little mystery. I haven’t read very many entertaining mysteries lately. I’m glad to know people are still writing engaging ones. I have added this to my list!
