THE STORY: In the middle of the night a knock comes on the door of Derek Ross, troubleshooter and sometimes government agent. Derek opens the door to find a beautiful woman dressed in an evening gown. Shannon Brown has come to find Derek after fleeing for her life. Someone is trying to kill her and she comes to Derek for protection. In trying to find out who is after the sweet, innocent Shannon, Derek finds that he cannot resist the woman who doesn't believe in her own beauty.
OPINION: I loved this book primarily because Derek is such a sweetheart. Here is an man who is rich, smart, a secret agent and also incredibly considerate the the damsel in distress. This book was originally published as a category romance in the 1980s so it has limitations on content and length, but despite that I love this story. The story is not realistic contemporary -- the entire plot is somewhat incredible, but it has a fun larger than life quality. Everything happens in this book in a matter of days. That being said, I really enjoyed the connection between Derek and Shannon. Shannon is emotionally damaged but her exposure to Derek and his patient and insistent love changes the way she sees herself. The action part of the story is interesting as well. I love these old stories although the tone and innocence of the stories are somewhat dated.
WORTH MENTIONING: Josh and Raven make significant appearances here.
CONNECTED BOOKS: OUTLAW DEREK is book 6 in the Hagen series. This book can be read as a standalone although all of these books are better as part of the series.
STAR RATING: I give this book 5 stars.
