    I admit I picked up this book because the author is well known and successful in another genre and I was curious but do not read paranormal Judging by this 1 book I cannot see what the fuss is about The writing style is simple the romance is so so the suspense plot is feeble with only 2 viable suspects and the heroine pulls a couple of TSTL moves The plot centers around a serial killer offing prominent society

S herself subject to the ironclad will of her new protector In spite of her frustration Grace is drawn to John Smith in ways she can't explain For beneath his tough exterior and dark past there's an inner core that is tantalizingly seductiveJohn knows that when you're a professional bodyguard it needs to be all business But such conduct makes for a solitary life. Having read the Moorehouse Legacy series which I ravenously devoured in a matter of days and the first and so far only O Banyon Brothers book which I loved I had some pretty high expectations for An Unforgettable Lady which might be part of my problem with the book Don t get me wrong I enjoyed it but I didn t LOVE it as I did the other Jessica Bird books that I ve read Important Message This book has been re released and included a nice note from the author explaining the evolution of her stories and writing style The only part I ll mention here because I feel that it s most important and speaks volumes to her growth as a writer is that she s stopped allowing her Rice Krispies to decide the direction her stories will take She still allows them some input but she s much disciplined a writer now and she not her breakfast cereal has the final say Whew And praise the Scribe Virgin for that because comparing this book with what I find to be her professional polished work found in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series written under the name J R Ward I have to say that I m not sure the BDB would have the same intensity if Snahp Crahckle and Pohp were calling the shots Can you imagine what the Brothers names might be like Fibher Whohle Grahain Mihlk Nutrishous Delishous Yeah see those just don t have the same feel nor would they strike the same level of terror into the Lessers as names like Tohrment Zsadist Phury Wrath Tehrror Vishous Muhrder or even Bloodletter doBut I digressThe first half moved a bit slowly for my taste and there was an exorbitant amount of internal dialog which sounded a lot like this John Smith I want her but I can t have her She deserves better My job is dangerous she d never be safe She s just a job When this is over I m walking away I have to say that got really really old really really fast And from Grace Hall we got a whole lot of So what if I m a trjillionaire socialite and he a bodyguard that shouldn t matter to him one bit Why does he care if I m a Countess it s by marriage only and speaking of marriage why should it matter that I m a married woman we re getting a divorce So yeah spending a book inside their heads like that just didn t do it for meThen we get to the 2nd half and things finally start taking off People are being gruesomely killed by a neat freak who rips their throats out and then tidies up their clothing a chef who is 2 eggs shy of a 3 egg omelet trying to singlehandedly take over the catering needs of most of New York City and a disgruntled employee who is trying to overthrow the Hall Foundation s hierarchy Those things made for some interesting reading One thing that bugged me was Grace s incessant griping about not needing a body guard when clearly she did she was on the list of women featured in the newspaper article which was also the killer s checklist for who was next on his hit list Well she wanted a body guard but didn t want to have to alter her lifestyle at all Not exactly the brightest bulb in the box if you ask me I didn t feel anything special for her or about her and didn t feel that she was deserving of John as her happily ever afterNow John Smith sigh Wow What a man He was angsty sexy demanding scarred sexy intelligent intense sexy whether writing as JR Ward or Jessica Bird this author knows how to put together one incredible hunk of male Did I mention he s one sexy guy who can guard my body any dayAnd speaking of sexy the sexual intensity was uite high but there wasn t much of the act itself They wanted each other they knew they did but kept talking each other out of it I was like WTH I mean when Grace finally gave John the green light and he was getting into it she throws on the brakes Then later he s all hot and bothered she s like oh yeah then HE puts a stop to it It worked for awhile but then seriously it went from being exciting sexual tension to frustration and overkill Overall after looking past the slow start to the story and Grace s TSTL Too Stupid To Live moments it was an enjoyable read I can t say I ll add it to my keepers shelf but I am glad I read it and I m looking forward to An Irresistible Bachelor
