Shot Through The Heart

The Silver Screen had never shone as bright . . . Mia Sinclair is the First Lady of Love, a beautiful film goddess known across the globe for her romantic roles. But in reality life does not imitate art and love is not as easily found in the real world as it is in the movies.
Leo Henderson is the Brit living in L.A, loving the lifestyle and photographing the stars - mostly when they least want to be photographed.
When Mia meets Leo, the sparks fly. But is dating a paparazzi the biggest mistake of her life? And how will she cope when Leo becomes jealous of her friendship with co-star Billy Spencer, the hottest actor in town but a man hiding a secret he's worried could destroy his career?
Shot through the Heart is Matt Cain's debut novel, a Hollywood tale of romance, heartbreak and the lengths some will go to maintain that unblemished movie star image.

Matt Cain's Shot Through the Heart is a first-class ticket to Tinseltown. A novel full of glitz, sex and secrets, it's over the top and fabulously good fun. I raced through it.
Fanny Blake
If you like your romance glitzy, topical and funny, you'll love this.
A deliciously sexy romp that blows open the scandalous secrets of Hollywood.
