Book Blurb: 
When hotshot reporter Max Malone gets a rare shot of Buckmaster Hamilton with a blond woman near Beartooth, Montana, he chases down one of the senator’s daughters to verify that the woman is Hamilton’s supposedly long-dead first wife. But Kat Hamilton won’t give him the time of day, let alone any information about her mother.

Kat can just tell that Max isn’t used to female sources denying him anything with his tousled blond hair, sexy stubble and an old straw cowboy hat topping off his long, lean frame. But when her own life is put in jeopardy, it’s Max who comes to her rescue. Seems someone is prepared to kill to keep the past in the past. Kat can’t deny she needs Max to find out what happened to her mother, but will getting closer and closer to each other lead them to the truth or to danger?

Review: Lucky Shot is book 3 in the Montana Hamiltons series. B.J. Daniels is a master at writing romantic suspense. She's written tons of books for the Harlequin Intrigue line. If you haven't read any of her books, this series is a good place to start. Heck, this book is a great place to start, because it is one of her absolute best!

I usually don't like books that involve politicians, especially ones that are Republicans, but all that aside there's no politics in the book, but a lot of drama surrounding a senator's former wife, who disappeared 22 years ago and returned and reporter Max Malone want to find out more about her. He does this by getting involved with the senator's daughter Kat, and together the try to find out more about her mother Sarah Hamilton. There's a lot of intrigue surrounding Sarah and it involves an anti-government terrorist group from the 70s called The Prophecy.

I know this is a romantic suspense, but it is the Sarah Hamilton part of the story that was really what I loved. That's not to say that there wasn't great chemistry between Kat and Max, because there was, but this book was more about the suspense rather than the romance between Kat and Max. Not to worry, romance lovers, their is a love story here as well, it just isn't front and center.

The mystery is really what kept me turning the pages, because there's so much creepy stuff involving this women. Did she fake her death? Why? Whats with this brain wiping stuff? Does she really have amnesia.

There are so many questions, and the ending is quite the cliffhanger. I usually hate cliffhangers, but for some reason this didn't bother me. In fact it really makes me want to read the next book. In short,without spoiling anything, you get answers but not all of them, and some of the answers you get may not be the right ones.

Highly recommended!!!!! Really! Go buy this book now!
