Good not great. Fairly typical contemporary romance. ( )

Roberts proves early in her career that she can write a touching love story that also includes an element of suspense and have both be very satisfying.
Chantel, the oldest O’Hurley triplet is a famous actress who is getting some very disturbing phone calls and letters. She hires Quinn Doran to track down her stalker, and the two embark on a relationship that becomes more personal than business.
Quinn is a little chauvinistic and misogynistic for my taste, but Chantel can hold her own with him. Her strength is the perfect temper to him, bringing out his vulnerable side. A very satisfying third book in this series and I am looking very much forward to reading the fourth and finally meeing the triplets’ elusive brother, Trace. ( )

Chantel O'Hurley knew that being a movie star came with fans, people always watching her and looking at her, but she never expected any of them to go this far. The noramally strong and self reliant Chantel needed help dealing with this one and asked her friend/agent for advise. Quinn Doran, private security specialist didn't like to do the fieldwork himself anymore, he always had employees for the grunt work, but Miss O'Hurley insisted on the best and that is what he was.

A predictable love story between the movie star and the body gaurd. The way that the story is drawn out makes you want to strangle them both from time to time. The end is a bit of a surprise and the climax of the mystery fan is such a small part, it feels like a bit of an afterthought.

This was book 3 of the 4 part series. I am very interested in book 4, it should be a bout long missing big brother Trace. ( )

Book description
The high price of fame meant learning to deal with obsessive fans. But this one was different. He was watching and waiting, and Chantel O'Hurley was afraid. She needed help, and it came with a $500-a-day price tag, a P.I. with the kind of tough, go-to-hell looks that made a woman's pulse race.

Private investigator Quinn Doran resented playing nursemaid to a spoiled star. But one look at the cool blonde showed him how easy it was to become obsessed with a woman like Chantel....

Even though Chantel was being harassed by an obsessive "admirer," she didn't want some two-bit P.I. telling her what to do. Chantel didn't need Quinn's arrogant insinuations. She needed to stay alive.

THE O'HURLEYS! Entrancing triplet sisters with three compelling stories to tell.
