Although the romance in The Defiant Hero isn't vastly different in tone to that in the first book in the Troubleshooter series, it is very steamy and very believable. All three pairings that emerge in this book, Meg, the heroine, and Nils; Eve, the grandmother, and Roger, the man she fell for and tricked at the age of 15; and the stunning Alyssa Locke and Sam Starrett keep the heat of the passion running all the way through the novel.
The action is break-neck, the chase not slowing until the very last pages and continues the pace started in The Unsung Hero. This is a serious must-read for any fan of dazzling romance, tough, caring heroes, SEALs at that, and anyone that just loves a great read in general. Well worth buying and storming through immediately.
First, like the other book, it has a bit of going back and forth the timeline. In this book I found it more irritating than helpful The story of Eve was in no connection to the actual storyline and while a lovely side story, it didn't bring me anything. The going back for Meg and John helped developing the actual storyline but I found some paragraphs were done in a way that I had to ask myself in what storyline am I.
The side story between Alyssa and Sam - good but far too developed, it took time and focus away from the main story.
The main story: I really enjoyed it, Meg and John are complex characters, well written and their ups and downs believable. The ending was good, the author kept the suspense up to the end without making it boring or dragging it out.
I already bought book no. 3 and unless something drastic happens I will continue reading.
One thing I discovered, the book was written 2001, way before 9/11 and the conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq. I think if a 15 year old book can hold up against new releases the author must do something good. In a way I enjoyed reading pre-2001 storylines.
