On the Run: Big Mike and Minnie by Susan Amanda Kelly


World, meet Minerva Coolidge, New York fashion model and disaster-magnet. Now meet Big Mike, her tough, tattooed, taciturn, somewhat reluctant bodyguard.

Minnie is only one runway show away from being a supermodel. She gave up bacon for that show so heaven help anyone who gets in her way. But Minnie has been ordered home to the west coast by her over-protective, criminal family. Trouble has followed her to the east coast. Minnie refuses to give up her hard-won freedom. So her family foists a bodyguard on her until they can fetch her home. Big Mike is exactly the kind of alpha tough guy she left home to escape. Overbearing. Distractingly yummy. And just like the men she grew up with, he totally underestimates her.

Big Mike takes one look at Minnie Coolidge and recognizes her as Trouble-With-A-Capital-T. Killer face, killer body, killer family and the survival instincts of a hen. He begrudgingly agrees to babysit her as a favor to her brother, an old army buddy. How hard can it be for an ex-biker, ex-Special Forces, international security specialist to keep one pretty nitwit safe for one day? And then she runs rings around him. Turns out Minnie's smart, mouthy and tough. Everything he likes. Loves. But he's only passing through. He can't wait to hand the hot disaster-magnet over to her brother, or can he?

Can true love conquer all? Maybe. But first, Minnie and Big Mike have to survive an attempted kidnapping, stash a corpse, rescue her bad-tempered cat, handle her vapid pop star admirer, avoid her geriatric sex-therapist neighbor, outwit the paparazzi and manage her crazily over-protective brother.

About the Author:

Susan Amanda Kelly loves making up stuff in her head. She drives her husband to distraction by suddenly stopping, mid-conversation, and staring off into space. She once spent five hours at sea, on a boat, muttering: "Where would he hide the body?" She hopes the video footage of that trip has been wiped. She finally decided to put the characters that inhabit her head, onto paper. It was like opening the door on a lunatic asylum—glorious bedlam. She hopes her readers come to love her characters as much as she does. She writes action-packed romantic comedies. And her husband is convinced her male leads are based on him. Not the body-hiding psychopath, of course. Sign up to be the first to hear about her new releases:


On the Run: Big Mike and Minnie was a fun read. Minerva Coolidge is a mafia princess who doesn’t want to be cossetted by her family—not even when her life is in danger. She can take care of herself, thank you very much. That is, when she’s not spilling things, dropping things, or trying to run in designer five-inch spiked heels. On the other hand, she’s smart, savvy, and resourceful. And with her perfect features, blonde hair, and big eyes people underestimate her all the time. Especially men.

Big Mike’s used to being in charge. Ex-military, mercenary, he’s been offered bodyguard jobs before. But babysitting the pampered and entitled is not his idea of real work. Until he agrees to do a favor for his old Army buddy and guard his pal’s kid sister. As the blurb says, Minnie runs rings around Big Mike, and they encounter lots of adventure, along with loads of humor and plenty of romance. Big Mike and Minnie will grab you on the first page and keep you running with them right through the last.
