I picked up this romantic suspense after reading a Facebook group recommendation. It didn’t disappoint and I look forward to reading more about Kate Howard.

Kate never expected to see Paxton Banks again after disappearing from his life 12 years ago. She didn’t follow orders. She almost got him killed. Now he’s an FBI agent and he reluctantly needs her help finding a domestic terrorist that has made his crimes personal to her. But her heart can’t survive another run-in with Paxton. After all, she

Excellent Story & Narration🎧 A Captivating Thrill!
High Heels and Handguns
A Kate Howard Novel, Book One
By: Lisa Heartman
Narrated by: Stephanie Nemeth-Parker

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the story grabbed my attention right from the start and held it captive straight to the end. Lisa Heartman is a gifted author, the storylines she created are interesting and original. Her characters are complex and nicely developed, they are likable and easy to relate to. I love that Kate Howard is her own pers

I was given an ARC of High Heels and Handguns. Kate Howard is independent, unrelenting, and stubborn to a fault. Throw in a lot of sass and you will be left rooting for her while shaking your head at her antics. Insert Paxton Banks into the scenario and you get an intricate relationship between the two, teetering between getting over their history and past mistakes while figuring out how to work together and explore their deep-rooted feelings.

Lisa Heartman does a good job of balancing the seriou

Lisa Heartman is a new author for me, but I loved High Heels and Handguns and will be watching for more of the series. There were great descriptions, an interesting story, good tension and likable characters.

I listened to the Audible version. Stephanie Nemeth-Parker is as new narrator for me, but she did a fabulous job. I would listen to her again in the future.

What a fun read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. In South Africa it would be described as a Skop, Skiet en Donder with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. Absolutely fabulous Lisa. Eagerly waiting for the next one.

High Heels and Handguns is a fun novel! Perfect blend of action, romance, suspense, and badassery! I can't wait for a follow up!

I listened to the audio book, which is superbly narrated. I would definitely listen to more by this narrator.

Captivating book

I choose this eating as this book was captivating. I did not want to put it down. Lisa drew you into the book the first page and then kept it going to the end. I hope to read more of her work in the near future.

I loved this book by Lisa Heartman! I was given an advanced reader copy and read through it pretty quickly. The suspense on what was gonna happen next had me staying up late reading for 4 nights. I'm sad that I finished it but absolutely loved the happy ending. I hope Lisa writes more about Kate and Paxton because I quickly fell in love with their characters.

Not what was expected

Couldn't put the book/reader down; even had to move to a quieter spot of the house so there were no interruptions! Well written. Enough heat, humor and angst that I look forward to more of these characters. Would even reread!

I was given an ARC of High Heels and Handguns. Kate is smart, resourceful, and one tough lady! The book opens with her protecting a state senator, and all hell breaks loose before we get through chapter one. On top of having a crap day on the job, the FBI agent assigned to the case is her former Army captain who she used to be in love with. From there, it's a roller coaster of emotions that kept me turning the pages to find out if they would catch the bad guy before someone else got hurt, and if ...more
3.5 stars

First time I'm reading from this New To Me author. If you enjoy bad ass (on the taller side)  heroines, army veterans, suspenseful stories with a dash of Romance, angst, and sexual tension, then this is your jam. We have Kate an army veteran who now works as a body guard, This book had me wanting to punch Kate becuz even though her heart would be in the right place she would go about things the wrong way sometimes, we see her struggle with guilt alot,  I liked how even tho she made a m
