Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Suzanne Brockmann knows exactly what makes hearts race and pulses pound: peril and passion. No one succeeds more brilliantly at blending these exhilarating elements in breathtaking novels of men and women forced to grapple with the deepest 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 never learned how to take a vacation. So when he finds himself facing a month's leave, he offers his services to Troubleshooters Incorporated. Founded by a former SEAL, the private-sector security firm is a major player in the ongoing war against terrorism and known for carrying out covert missions too volatile for official U.S. military action. But Richter's first case is anything but under the radar.

High-profile maverick movie producer Jane Mercedes Chadwick hasn'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 - and the storm of advance media buzz surrounding it has drawn the fury of extremist groups. But despite a relentless campaign of angry emails, phone calls, and smear tactics, Chadwick won't be pressured into abandoning the project. Then the death threats come.

While the FBI appears on the scene, nervous Hollywood associates call in Troubleshooters, and now Chadwick has an army of round-the-clock bodyguards, whether she likes it or not - and she definitely doesn't. Her stubbornness doesn't make FBI agent Jules Cassidy's job any easier. The fiercely independent filmmaker presents yet another emotional obstacle that Cassidy doesn't need - he's already in the middle of a personal tug-of-war with his ex-lover and fighting a growing attraction to Chadwick's brother.

Determined to succeed - and survive - on her own terms, Chadwick will face off with enemies and allies alike.

Cosmo and Stunning Jane

Chief Cosmo Richter takes some leave to help his injured mom, but uses some of it to work a bodyguard job for Troubleshooters Inc.
J Mercedes Chadwick aka Jane is just trying to produce her WWII movie but has a stalker who has already killed once. Jules Cassidy of the FBI is also working to catch this killer; but when he goes to LA, he gets jerked around by his ex Adam, who wants a movie part.
Add in Jane’s brother Robin Chadwick who is so far in the closet that he won’t admit he’s gay or alcoholic. No matter what sparks are flying, Jules has had enough of them both and walks away.
Meanwhile, Cosmo and Jane find they have the ever after kind of compatibility.
Lawlor does a decent job of narration.
Ewbank’s voice is complementary.

Great story all the way around.

Most stories only give you the the one story of the main character. In this book everyone had a story to tell. Very entertaining

Hot Target

Cosmo and Jane are a most unlikely pair but not only do the mesh with Suzanne Brockmann's wonderful humor they are in depth characters. Having read the book several times I loved having it read to me with the narrators giving life to each character.

Great read.

Great addition to the Troubleshooters series. Cosmo wasn't what I expected. I think he might be my new favorite Seal. I look forward to reading the stories of the new guys in Troubleshooters Inc. It was great seeing Tom and Kelly again in this one. I've missed them.
