Here's a little more about the book:


The Bulletproof action continues in BULLETPROOF TEXAS when a brooking ex-park ranger and a sexy research scientist fight for control over a cave that holds the secret to curing cancer.

Nothing and no one could him... Except maybe a beautiful doctor full of secrets.

Escorting Dr. Maxine (Max) O’Neil into the cave known as Devil’s Hallow was Zach Douglas’s job. Relishing the sparring matches with the type-A scientist was his pleasure. He ran the show in the Texas Hill Country cavern—until sabotage and murder struck the site. Hours spent in the dark, cozied up in tight quarters with Max had shown Zach her passionate side. Now he wanted to see the truthful one. What was in that cave that was worth dying for? Only one thing was for sure” Whether Max liked it or not, Zach would de everything in his power to keep them from being Devil’s Hollow’s next casualties.


Scientist Max O’Neil things there may be cure for cancer in the clear waters of a pond recently discovered in an underground cavern. Her pharmaceutical company sends her out there to investigate. But park ranger Zach Douglas’ sister was killed by a corrupt pharmaceutical company’s renegade enforcer, so he doesn’t buy Max’s explanations that she’s conducting research for women’s cosmetics. Then equipment is sabotaged, a student is murdered and rumors of diamonds have desperate townspeople trying to close down the cavern for their own exploration. Thomas’ characters are not easy to like, but the unwinding plot it taut, tricky and worth the read.

    Would you now, MM? Hehe, I'm gonna tell the Native American you're cheating on em with a Texan! Now where was that website again?

    Scarlet, scampering off to get MM in trouble.

    The ladies here didn't know about my Native American.

    I picked up the book at Dreamin' in Dallas this past weekend. HQ was nice enough to provide it early for the booksigning.

    Let's hope one of us wins! Wouldn't that be cool?

    Dang! I was at the bookstore this afternoon, but I hadn't read the blog yet.

    Can't wait to read Bulletproof Texas! Better than Bulletproof was soooo exciting, so I'm eager to read the sequel. Unbearable suspense, woo-hoo!
