Private investigator Vivi Angelino loves living life on the edge, but stepping into the shoes of a movie starlet to bait a serial killer isn't just a thrill . . . it's a ticket to the big time for her fledgling security firm. That is, as long as a certain risk-averse FBI agent stays out of her way-and out of her fantasies.

My favorite of the series! I absolutely loved everything about this book--the characters, the plot, the romance, the suspense, the who-done-it, the action...all of it worked for me, and as an added bonus, it even made me cry.

Face Of Danger is the third book (you must read these in order) in Roxanne St. Claire's Guardian Angelinos series, and it was a real pleasure to read. We first meet the heroine, 32 year-old tomboy skateboarder, Vivi Angelino of the Boston area in book #1 (Edge of Sight), whe
I won this book in Goodreads First Reads.

I'm surprised by how much I love this book. The first book of this series, Edge of Sight, was pretty much an Epic Fail. The second book of the series, Shiver of Fear, was a Mild Epic Fail, due in large part to Devyn's ridiculousness. So, the whole time I was reading Face of Danger, I really was surprised by how much I was actually enjoying it, and that it ended up being an Epic Success for me by the end. I was actually really intrigued by the whole concep
Face of Danger was fabulous and it has to be one of the best books of 2011 for me. Move over Bullet Catchers, this is my new favorite by Roxanne St Claire.

Review posted at:

Face of Danger is book 3 in one of my current, favorite, must read series, The Guardian Angelinos. These are absolutely standalone books, but I enjoy the layers you get when reading a series starting at the beginning. We first meet Vivi Angelino in book 1 as a feisty reporter who’s trying to talk her brother, Zach, into starting a family owned security firm. After much convincing, the firm is started up and The Guardian Angelinos are born.

This book was so good I don't even know where to begin. I have to admit, I was not Vivi's biggest fan before I started this one. It's not that I disliked her, but her feisty nature and tomboyishness were problematic for me. But once I started the book and got inside her POV all my hesitations were washed away. I've always been a sucker for a straight-laced hero paired with a troublesome heroine, and from the first Colton Lang pushed all my hero buttons. The story itself is intriguing, involving ...more
I just finished reading this book. I wanted to wait for it to be on Kindle, but yesterday I was at a neighborhood bookstore and the owner was putting it out, so I grabbed one. I'm so glad I did, just because this one needs a place on the keeper shelf.

This book had absolutely everything I want in a romantic suspense. The main characters were wonderful, funny and real. The story line was "big" like a movie (in fact, it would make a wonderful movie) with action and plot twists and surprises. And th

This author is wonderfully creative! I love this series. This was fast paced and action packed. I had no idea that Vivi (from the previous books) was so darn cute.

Vivi Angelino is on a mission to get the name of her new company known. She decides to approach famous actress, Cara Ferrari, about working as a body double in order to protect her from a possible serial killer. When Cara agrees, Vivi finds herself disguised as Cara and under the protection of Special Agent Colt Lang. They’ve worked together before and she knows hiding her identity will be even harder than hiding how bad she has the hots for him. Colton has always thought Vivi was cute, but won’ ...more
Love how the characters in this book Colton (Lang) and Vivi are brought to life. You get to see them in the other books but here they get to shine on their own. It's their story.

Auntee had already posted a great review of this 3rd installment so I'll just say that I agree with her twice over. After the disappointing Shiver of Fear, Face of Danger was refreshingly, and thankfully, satisfying on every level.

The sexual chemistry between Vivi and Lang had already been primed and prepared from the previous book from which we know Vivi's vivacious personality versus Special Assistant Agent-in-Charge Lang's (or is that Asst Special Agent-

By far the best of The Guardian Angelinos series. After SHIVER OF FEAR, Shiver of Fear (The Guardian Angelinos, #2) by Roxanne St. Claire
I was a bit leery of picking up and continuing with the series, but I did want to read Vivi and Lang's story. WOW - What a ride! Ms. St. Claire did not disappoint.

These two, Vivi and Lang, would be voted the least likely to succeed: Opposites attract. Vivi has kept a dark secret from her family for many years and it has affected her relationships with men. Slim to none would be the ca

I really liked Vivi, she's strong even if she may seem a little too risk-taking. I liked how the attraction she feels for the hero makes her overcome her trauma. I liked Lang, he's strong, resolute, quite stubborn, and it was delightful to see him struggle between reason and feelings. The plot is interesting, but I found the final culprit was dealt with a little too quickly.
Loved this book. Gabe! Please let his book be next. Im glad Vivi and Lang finally got their story. We learned a little back ground on both if them and why what's happened to them in the past has shapped them today and how they approach relationships. Uncle Nino is a favorite and makes an appearance as do other family members. Hope Roxanne St Claire writes some more of the Guardian Angelinos!
Vivi Angelino may look like a Sk8ter girl but sometimes looks can be deceiving and sometimes they can land you the gig of a lifetime. Vivi’s the brains behind the Guardian Angelinos Protection and Security business she runs with her extended family and she‘s very proud of the company she‘s built from the ground up. She wants nothing more then for the Guardian Angelinos to be the best in the business evah! And she's willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that happens.

Face of Danger is definitely my favorite in the Guardian Angelino series; I have been eagerly awaiting Vivi's story along with the delectable Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang and I loved absolutely everything about it.

I’m going to apologize in advance for all the gushing that is about to happen. Face of Danger is beyond fantastic! I knew I’d love Vivi. She has a great personality and she’s the creator and the brains behind The Guardian Angelinos. Her personality shined in the first two books and knew that it would continue to shine in this one. FBI Agent Colton Lang and Vivi bumped heads from day one. He’s a strictly by the book kind of guy and Vivi likes to break all the rules. When they are forced to work o ...more

As with any suspense novel I expect there to be a crime that I get to make guesses about the who done it while I’m reading. St. Claire has really made me feel differently about suspense novels. Face of Danger was complex with numerous twists and turns, it kept me guessing right up to the end. As soon as I would figure out who I thought the criminal was there would be a twist and I would begin to believe that person could possibly be a victim. Vivi steps into Cara’s life to try to prevent a seria ...more
Since this series has started I have been waiting for this book. Vivi is a such a fun and larger than life character. I loved how she bullies her family, how she single handedly got them all to buy into her vision, The Guardian Angelinos. Being able to see the whole family work together is the biggest appeal of these books. They all are so different, but have such a fierce love for each other you can't help but to love them. Especially the odd ball aspects, Uncle Nino, everyone should have someo ...more

St. Claire has struck again with another phenomenal book in the Guardian Angelino’s series. This is book three, which focuses on one of the main founders of the ever-growing agency, Vivi Angelino, and her desire to once again push her company’s name into the spotlight by inserting herself in yet another dangerous investigation. This time, however, things are a little different as Vivi herself is the one to serve as a double for an actress whose name could

My Review:
From the very start of this series, Vivi has been a wonderful character. A skater chick with a tough as nails attitude to match, but the brains of an ace investigative reporter tied up into one sexy little bundle. The Guardian Angelinos is her brain-child and she has HUGE plans for this company going big! I couldn't wait for her story, and OMG, it did NOT disappoint! This story was wonderful!!!

This book was soo much better than the last one, I was relieved to find out. Roxanne St. Claire is too good an author to ruin herself by continuing the bad pattern that could have started after Shiver of Fear.

I'm really liking this series and not just the close family feel of it. The characters are interesting and not your typical cookie cutter romantic suspense hero and heroine. I was particularity interested in Vivi Angelino right from the start of the series. Now it's time for her story and it didn't disappoint!

Vivi Angelino isn't what comes to mind when most people think of a PI. She's has her own unique style that's a reflection of her love of skateboarding. But looks can be deceiving and Vivi i
Best of the series so far. This installment focused on Vivi Angelino, the quirky, nutty, skateboarding, journalist punk sister of Zach who was the main character in the first novel. Ever since the first one, she has been my favorite of the series so it's no stretch I would give this a 5.

The writing was fantastic, St. Claire has such a gift with character development and infusing so much emotion in her characters that they almost seem real to the reader. You can't help but get involved. The story

I was going to say this was my favorite book of the series but I love all of them. They are all books you can read over and over.
