Description

New York Times bestselling author SuzanneBrockmann knows exactly what makes hearts race and pulses pound: peril andpassion. No one succeeds more brilliantly at blending these exhilaratingelements in breathtaking novels of men and women forced to grapple with thedeepest emotions and the highest risks. And there's no better proof than Hot Target—which will thrill on every level.

Like most men of action, Navy SEAL chief Cosmo Richter neverlearned how to take a vacation. So when he finds himself facing a month'sleave, he offers his services to Troubleshooters Incorporated. Founded by aformer SEAL, the private-sector security firm is a major player in the ongoingwar against terrorism and known for carrying out covert missions too volatile forofficial US military action. But Richter's first case is anythingbut under the radar.

High-profile maverick movie producer Jane Mercedes Chadwickhasn't quite completed her newest film, but she's already courting controversy.The World War II epic frankly portrays the homosexuality of a real-life hero—andthe storm of advance media buzz surrounding it has drawn the fury of extremistgroups. But despite a relentless campaign of angry emails, phone calls, andsmear tactics, Chadwick won't be pressured into abandoning the project. Thenthe death threats come.

While the FBI appears on the scene, nervous Hollywoodassociates call in Troubleshooters, and now Chadwick has an army ofround-the-clock bodyguards, whether she likes it or not—and she definitelydoesn't. Her stubbornness doesn't make FBI agent Jules Cassidy's job anyeasier. The fiercely independent filmmaker presents yet another emotionalobstacle that Cassidy doesn't need—he's already in the middle of a personaltug-of-war with his ex-lover, and fighting a growing attraction to Chadwick'sbrother.

Determined to succeed—and survive—on her own terms, Chadwickwill face off with enemies and allies alike. But she doesn't count on the bondshe'll form with the quiet, capable Cosmo Richter. Yet even as their feelingsbring them closer, the noose of deadly terror all around them draws tighter.And when all hell erupts, desire and desperate choices will collide on akilling ground that may trap them both in the crossfire.

      • content:

        December 20, 2004
        Known for her adrenaline-laced Navy SEAL romances, Brockmann displays a new, more political side in this brisk but bumpy romantic thriller, which advocates gay rights. Though the book follows the exploits of sexy, silent Cosmo Richter, the man of mystery from Brockmann's earlier romances (Gone Too Far
        , etc.), Cosmo must share the limelight with Jules Cassidy, a gay FBI agent and also a recurring character in Brockmann's books. Both Cosmo and Jules are charged with safeguarding hot Hollywood producer Jane Chadwick, who has come under fire (literally) for making a movie dealing with two gay war heroes. A few contrived plot twists find Cosmo and Jane initially butting heads, then coming together as friends and finally burning up the sheets as lovers. More compelling is Jules's struggle to stay away from his egocentric ex, an actor who conveniently lands a starring role in Jane's film, and from Jane's brother Robin, who's so deep in the closet that he has turned to drink. At times, Brockmann goes too far in pushing her agenda—even Cosmo is a card-carrying member of PFLAG who, thanks to his gay father, "can name every Barbara Streisand album ever made"—and readers won't need second sight to foresee the story's twists. Still, Brockmann's uncanny ability to give each character an authentic voice and dialogue to match will pull readers through this shaky installment.
