As the weather is turning colder who isnít looking for a way to warm up? I suggest you get a cozy blanket, a hot beverage and a good book; for fans of Katherine Garbera that would be her newest offering Bare Facts.

As the story opens three beautiful women have been called into a meeting with their boss. The way the meeting takes place and the fact that each woman is assigned a very specific job within the case theyíre all assigned is very reminiscent of Charlieís Angels. If you were a fan of that show, and that type of heroine then youíre going to want to continue reading, if you werenít this might be the first hint that you have that Bare Facts is not the book for you.

Charity Keone is the bodyguard of the group. She once was a top super model, but a tragedy in her life has turned her into something of a vigilante, and sheís now using those skills to earn her living. She and her partners, Justine and Anna are being assigned to protect Daniel Williams and find out whom is blackmailing him.

Daniel, when he realizes who has been assigned to protect him decides that maybe he doesnít need protecting, but should rather draw out his blackmailer and fight to the death to protect what he sees as his and his family.

As the story unfolds Daniel has to tell Charity exactly what they are up against. Itís not your typical blackmailer, but rather the leader of a powerful Japanese Cult. Itís upon this revelation that readers have to really begin to suspend their beliefs in what people are capable of, and that humans can withstand some of the beatings and tortures that are outlined in the Bare Facts.

Bare Facts is published by Brava, which I have been led to believe is supposed to be slightly more erotic, and hot. I found the chemistry sorely lacking, and the heat didnít radiate off the pages.

Iím still new to Ms. Garberaís writing, so Iím going to be interested to listen to what those who are more familiar with her style have to say about her new book, but for me I was left wanting.
