It had been several years since I read my last Love Inspired Suspense. When they first came out I bought them every month and I have a couple of hundred of these. I was thrilled in the beginning to have something clean to read. Over time I began to tire of them...the sameness...the tired repeated plots. So I found this one in the powder room tonight where one of my daughters had left it and I thought I'd give it a try. I enjoyed it in the beginning but it the more I read the more far-fetched it ...more
The suspense is sorely lacking in this entry in the Love Inspired series, as socialite/bail jumper Amanda Stowe tries unsuccessfully to elude bounty hunter Chance Walker in Alaska.

There are several good chapters that involve survival in the harsh Alaskan wilderness with Chance, Amanda, and their treacherous pilot, Santana, that are unfortunately sullied by the arrival of Annie and Joe, two minor characters who disappear from the remainder of the story after they rescue Amanda and Chance. It’s ra

This book was good. It revolved around a recently widowed woman who is on the run for her husband's murder. The bounty hunter, Chance Walker, doesn't think she's innocent and hauls her back to D.C. At least, he tries to. A plan crash and some other events gives him a clue that perhaps she really innocent.


My question is this: What happened to the dead pilot? I know it's not exactly important for this book, but I needed it for my own closure. Did they just leave him out there? Did they ca

Bounty Hunter Guardian by Diane Burke is a suspenseful, well-written book. Amanda and Chance's story is full of drama, action and amazing characters. Ms Burke has done a masterful job of creating a book that you don't want to put down. I enjoyed Bounty Hunter Guardian and look forward to reading more from Diane Burke in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

I read a print copy of this book.
I love this author. This is the third book of hers that I have read, and I could not put it down. It was a clean read with plenty of action and plot twists. Add in strong emotions and solid faith. And I love that her characters are not perfect. Amanda had a couple of moments where she faltered or made dumb choices. It really made her character feel more realistic. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense.

I really enjoyed this Love Inspired Suspense. The action never let up, and Amanda's faith even in dire circumstances uplifted me. I found Chance's reactions very believable, and it was easy to fall in love with these two as they fought for their lives. If you're looking for a holiday nail-biter--this is your book!

Amanda is fleeing for her life ...and a bounty hunter is chasing her..all she wants is her freedom and to clear her name with the evidence. I never expected the ending...why would someone kill their own relative like that in such cold blood. I've been rooting for the growing romance between Chance and Amanda til the last pages..

Although the Love Inspired series of books can sometimes be a little heavy on the religious side, this was a pretty good book. There were a few things in the book that I just can't see logistically happening but it's fiction right? It's fast paced enough to keep you wanting to read to find out who did it.

The in medias re opening was a great set up, but I still felt Amanda and Chance's romance happened too quickly, especially since she was a relatively new widow. Most of the mystery of the killings was well played out, but I would have liked a bit more foreshadowing to really sell the ending.

Another great book that did keep me in suspend. Once again I thought I had everything figured out and got almost to the end to fond out I didn't have it figured out after all. Another great read for me.

Great characters! Loads of action and suspense, a really great read. I have not read any books by this author before, but will be looking for her now!

This was really good. Occasionally, the main female character seemed too dumb. Other than that, it had a surprise twist and a great ending.

For me, the author proved herself again. Great twist of the story and the mystery keeps me guessing as who did it. Great read!
