Sherry Fundin, oh man, I read a lot of romantic suspense and Cate Beauman has to be up there with the best of them. Right off the bat, Cate has me teary eyed, with throat tightening emotions threatening to burst forth, when Reagan deals with a terrible loss in the Emergency Room.

That is how she ends up in the back woods of Black Bear Gap, a coal mining town in Kentucky, working as a doctor for The Appalachian Project. And…of course we must have security. Enter, Shane,

I think I’ve shown the last couple of months that I love Cate Beauman’s The Bodyguards of L.A. County series. I started reading them in July 2016 and since then I’ve loved every single book in the series I’ve read. ‘Reagan’s Redemption’ is the eighth book in the series, and the eighth one I read.

In ‘Reagan’s Redemption’ we meet doctor Reagan Rosner. Reagan works in the ER of a New York hospital when one case changes her life. Desperate to forget and escape Reagan accepts a job at a position as H

This installment of the Bodyguards books might have been my least favorite. The suspense part was lacking in my opinion. There wasn't enough action until the end. There weren't any "edge of my seat" moments. The big reveal at the end was not very climatic.

The romance between Shane and Reagan was played very well however. I liked how they had a slow burn and it was sexy to read.

On to part 9!

I think this might be my most favorite of the Bodyguard Books so far. I thought I knew who was behind incidents and then I was sort of surprised as I kept changing my mind. Reagan and Shane, Chase and Jenny are well developed and seriously fun characters. I wanted more of their stories.... the dialogue between these week-written and believable characters is excellent. Kudos!

I really enjoyed this book. She is an amazing writer and it is hard to put down her books before the end and then you are sorry it ended.

I love this series! Cate Beauman has written another great mystery! This is the story of Reagan and Shane who meet in The Gap working in a small mining community. I love how you feel like you are living there with them as she describes what it is like to step into the Backwoods of Kentucky with a group of people who do not want you there. As Reagan attempts to make a difference with the tiny medical clinic, Shane supports her and a friendship blooms. After one really intense teenager delivers a ...more

Beauman has done it again. This story revolves around Dr. Reagan Rosner, a New York Trauma Specialist who loses a patient under awful circumstances. To redeem herself (in her mind), she accepts the position of Chief Medical Officer for the so-called "Appalachia Project", as it's called by Cooke Security. The medical clinic is in a very inhospitable area of Kentucky. Very few patients come to see the doctor and very few medical professionals want to stay. Shane Harper, former U.S. Marshal and fri ...more

This book wasn't as good as the previous books in the series. This is the Bodyguards of L. A. Series. Shane was sent to Kentucky to guard a backwoods government project, including the beautiful Dr. Reagan Rosner. He's attracted to her from the start but she seems strictly business. They develop a friendship but trouble begins to pile up and Reagan makes enemies of some of the people there. It becomes overwhelming and in a moment of stress she goes to Shane' s room and initiates a sexual encounte ...more

Novel received courtesy of giveaway

This is Book 8 in the "Bodyguard of LA County" series. I loved it so much that, as soon as I have time, I'll be finding the first 7 books! At over 500 pages, it was so much more than a romance although you know that's where the story is heading. This was a really "smart" mystery; meaning it was timely and complex.

While Reagan is working as a doctor in Appalachia for a federally funded program, she is supposed to live in the same cabin with the guy

Great series

I have loved this series. This book was slightly different from the others in the series. Though it definitely didn't lack for action, it was certainly heavier on the suspense and emotional development. I enjoyed the setting and quickly fell in love with the characters, especially Jenny and Faith. The story kept tensions high. The romance was at times both sweet and cozy and difficult and volatile. Reagan and Shane were an amazing couple, and their care of Jenny and Faith was heartwa

Reagan's Redemption

Reagan is an ER doctor that needs a fresh start. She becomes the doctor for a small community called The Gap. It is a very poor community with MINE that most of the people work there. She discoverers lots of secrets and she is getting to close that she starts getting threats. Her boss for the clinic has hired a bodyguard to keep an eye on the meds at the clinic. Shane Harper is an ex Marshall that has join Ethan Cooke's security team. He's not looking forward going to The Gap
I wish this author wouldn't have the heroines start off so strong only to get stupid halfway through. I saw the plot coming from a mile away, which is fine because the story was enjoyable. Well, it was until the supposedly brilliant doctor stopped communicating with the people there guarding her. And making Amber the femme fatale two books in a row was a bit much. I'll read the next book because I already own it, but I really hope the next heroine stays smart throughout the whole book, not just ...more

Excellent read A++++

Great story, wonderful characters and a little twist as Reagan and Shane find more than love. The Bodyguard series is a terrific series. Each couple having their own problems and finally finding their soulmates. Cate Beauman tells a great story , I'm looking forward to her next book

Guess I'm in the minority on this one, but this was my least favorite book of the series. At 25% in I almost DNF, but I really despite doing that so I trudged on and by about 50% in the story got better. I just couldn't get into the story line. And while a love Shane's character, Reagan's was just annoying.

Definitely one of the best in the series. I am hoping the next one has a grown up Faith. About 5 years later I suspect would be enough time for Terry to be out and looking for vengeance. A must read for anyone who likes this series.

Another good book in this series. The hero and heroine are, as always, eminently likeable, try hard to do what is right... and communicate horribly. A little less action and suspense in this one, but still a thoroughly enjoyable book.
