Then You Hide is the 5th book in the series and continues the search for the three sisters that were sold as babies to reunite them with their birthmother, which started in the previous book, #4 First You Run.

Bullet Catcher Wade Cordell is assigned to finding the second sister, Vanessa Porter, the successful NYC workaholic, who is on her own mission in the Caribbean to find her missing BFF, Clive someone or other who also happens to work with her.

Lots of things happen to the two on the Caribbean

Wonderful book in the Bullet Catcher Series...This is part two of a trilogy (subset) WITHIN the Bullet Catcher Series you could, essentially, start with this Trilogy:
1. First You Run
2. Then You Hide
3. Now You Die (Sep 2008)

Starting on page 252 of this book there is a brief mention of the previous Bullet Cather's and other characters from previous books--all gathered around for a meeting. FYI

Great suspense, romance, and twists to the plot that were surprising to This Reader. Well written, some fu

3.5. This book is the second in a trilogy, but really one of many in the Bullet Catchers series. Then You Hide is about Wade and Vanessa.

I thought this book was pretty good, but fell a step short of being really good. Wade takes and assignment from Lucy, head of the BC, to find the second or three sisters that were sold in a black market baby operation. Their mother is in jail for a murder she might not have committed and is dying of leukemia. Jack (a fired BC) is looking for the sisters to find

Wall Street hedge-fund manager searches for her missing co-worker & BFF in the Caribbean. Security-specialist Hero promises to help heroine only if she will go see her comatose biological mother in prison after the search & find out if she's the right match for the bone-marrow transplant her mother needs to survive. Their search generates danger, surprises, & an affair b/w Hero & heroine.

I didn't like this book as much as St Claire's First You Run (The Bullet Catchers). This was

This was my first book by Roxanne St. Claire. I was going to give the book 2.5 stars, but I'm giving it three stars, because I like the hero, Wade. He's a good Southern guy. A bullet catcher,ex-marine (I wished that he was more of a bad boy though). He was hired to find Vanessa - a Wall Street employee, because her mother -a woman who she doesn't really know, due to her giving Vanessa away on a black market, needs her help. He goes to the Islands to find this woman and when he does, he learns th ...more

I've read a number of "romantic suspense" stories before. Maybe I picked badly because they always seemed 98% suspense and 2% romance. The two books I've read of Roxanne St. Claire's are far more evenly balanced and, for my money, much more enjoyable. I have the next book of her bullet chaser series on deck to read next, and I'm sure it will just as good. (These Bullet Chasers are pretty hot, hunky guys.)

I liked this a whole lot more than all the other Bullet Catchers but I could not give it more than the 3-star "I liked it" rating because of the plot weakness.

The person responsible for Eileen Stafford's predicament is supposed to be someone so powerful he "can do anything" to quote Eileen. Yet thirty years later, the circumstances haven't changed in that Eileen is still afraid of this person just as this person is afraid Eileen will spill secrets? I don't buy this - she accepted the deal to go

"Then You Hide" is the second book in the trilogy within the "Bullet Catchers" series (or book number five overall). And man oh man, this one is difficult to review. Overall, this story was much more intriguing and exciting than "First You Run". Really fantastic. However, the thing that kept me from loving it was the female lead. In the last book, I had a hard time with the male lead...But Roxanne St. Claire had me really liking him and rooting for him by the end of the story. That is not the ca ...more

3 stars – Romantic Suspense

This is my least favorite book in the Bullet Catcher series so far. I found it a bit boring and slow paced, and although I liked sexy, sweet, southern boy Bullet Catcher Wade Cordell, the heroine Vanessa Porter drove me nuts. This has been the only blah read for me so far in the series, so I’ll definitely still continue on and read the next book. 3 stars.

Erster Satz: "Wen haben wir denn da? Ist das nicht die hübscheste Verdächtige von ganz Charleston County?"

Auch im fünften Bullet Catcher Band dreht sich alles um Eileen Stafford und ihre Drillingsmädchen. Nachdem Adrien Fletcher eine ihrer Töchter, Miranda Lang, im letzten Band ausfindig gemacht hat, diese jedoch für eine Knochenmarkspende nicht infrage kommt, beauftragt Lucy Wade damit Mirandas Schwester, Vanessa Porter, aufzusuchen und sie ins Gefängniss zu ihrer leiblichen Mutter zu bringen.

The second in the trilogy (but book five in the Bullet Catchers series). We now know that Eileen had triplets which she gave up for adoption. Miranda is not a match for Eileen so the hunt is on for the other two daughters.

Lucy wants former sniper Wade to join Bullet Catchers and offers him a dream assignment. Track down a blonde (Miranda's sister) in the Caribbean.

Unfortunately, Vanessa is a potty-mouthed, Wall Street Fund Manager trying to track down her best friend who has gone AWOL on a Cari

Then You Hide by Roxanne St. Claire is the second in the “Bullet Catchers Trilogy.” Able to stand alone, you won’t want to put down this story of suspense, intrigue, murder and of course a fantastic love story. Once again Ms. St. Claire wows us with her prose, keeping us on the edge of our seats until we’ve turned the final page.

Wade Cordell isn’t really a Bullet Catcher – at least not yet. So far he has worked only contract jobs for them but now they want him to be a permanent part of the team.

Bullet Catchers are an elite group of personal protection specialists ruled over by sleek and sophisticated Lucy Sharpe. They are called into jobs where expertise in guns, technology, undercover, surveillance, and, yeah, defensive physical moves are needed. Their clientele must be referred and is comprised of the upper cream of society. While they are supposed to be professionals through and through, sometimes getting close to their principal (protected client) means letting the principal into t ...more

I enjoyed Then You Hide even more than I did First You Run, the first in this mini series in a series. It was nice to leave that whole Mayan Myth stuff behind and just concentrate on the two leads -- easy going, Southern boy Wade who is dealing with his past as a sharp shooter and soldier and fast moving, faster talking, tough New Yorker Vanessa.

Wade finds Vanessa very off-putting for the first third (or more) of the story, at least whenever she opens her mouth. For an ex-marine, he has little

Book five of the Bullet Catcher series, and book two of the middle series trilogy. This book is about Wade, a southern gentleman and government sniper, and Vanessa, a New York hedge fund manager. Wade is slow and casual. Vanessa is fast and tense. Wade has been sent to locate Vanessa Porter on her first holiday in 6 years, in the hopes of getting her to come back to the states for bone marrow testing for Eileen Stafford, her biological mother. But Vanessa is not on holiday, she's searching for h ...more

Then You Hide
4.5 Stars

Fast paced and exciting - definitely one of the best in the series.

Vanessa initially comes across as hard and abrasive but it quickly becomes clear that she is loyal to a fault and her cool facade is really a defense mechanism concealing her fear of being hurt and losing someone she loves. Wade is simply gorgeous with his soft, sweet, sexy southern drawl that just makes you melt. He is dead set against liking Vanessa but she gets under his skin and he cannot help falling f

After a forced reading break I decided to go easy and immediately decided to go for the next book in this series. I really liked it. Wade is great character, I totally liked his slow and calm apparently southern attidute that seems to clash with Vanessas fast and sometimes impatient behaviour.

The story kept me guessing until the end. I really didn't know what to think about Clive, if he was innocent or not, what to think about his friend Bones and all that other stuff you get thrown at you throu

I read it this book because many reviews compare this author to Suzanne Brockmann and the story to 'Romancing the Stone'. While I can see the similarities, both Brockmann and Romancing are the real deal while this author and story is just a good, but second rate version. Its a fun, light suspense novel with good guys and bad guys. The fun was trying to figure out who is good and who is bad. The story twists and takes you to interesting place, so I thought it was pretty good. The romance was weak ...more
Lynn Aoude
Great plot. I gave it a 3 instead of a 4 is that the "connection" between the main characters is just not there. I hated Vanessa with a passion. She's the ultimate ice queen. Not just that but she's the most hateful, self-centered, selfish, rash bitch. Every one of her words and her actions just put me on edge. She wants her thing now, to hell with safety and to hell with anybody else. And her transformation at the end is just not realistic. She's never thought about anyone but herself, so the t ...more

Yep, this hit home big time. I still miss a dimension, but seriously, one of my favourites so far.

Sassy Vanessa with her closed off persona and her heart filled with anger and hate. Oh, did I love her. She was fast and took no nonsence. I want to be her when I grow up :) I love the fact that she ditched Wade. Made me love her even more.

I also loved Wade. Although it felt like I didn't know him. I never felt connected to him. It was all about her and I missed so much of him. Sure we got to know

I didn't think I was the type of girl to like the slow-talking Southern charmer, but it kinda grows on you. There's nothing sexier than a man who know when to go fast and when to slow down. And the greatest part was that I was experiencing the transformation of feelings Victoria had towards Wade right along with her. I'm a fast-talking, fast-walking city girl from the north and the whole southern charm thing was lost on me. Although, I gotta admit, there's something to be said about chivelrous m ...more

This one kept me guessing as to what will happen next. WTF. HAHA.It came as a surprise when the real mastermind behind the killing-spree was revealed. Whoa. I so did not expect that. Page by effin page kept me on edge.

Wade is such a sa-weet hero. Like he said, 'an old-fashioned Southern boy with an accent that makes good girls go bad' XDD

Then You Hide is the 5th 'Bullet-Catcher' novel by Roxanne St.Claire and the continuation of a story line started in First You Run. It is Wade Cordell and Vanessa Porter's story. I really enjoyed the book and liked these two together. Seemingly opposites, they are certainly attracted to each other from the beginning.

This continues the story about the triplet sisters who were separated and adopted shortly after birth. The Bullet-Catchers are looking for the three and hoping to reunite them with
