Book review: Dangerous by author Diane Palmer

This is my first review of a Diane Palmer book. I've read several of her books and while reading them I've been really pissed to totally charmed. Swear i'm not going to read another book of hers and then do it again. I don't know that I've read one I'd read again but maybe this time i may have found one that i would. Are you saying huh? Well my small experience with Diane Palmer books the man is usually at least 10 years older and a real ass. He eventually gets a clue as to how lucky he is at the end but in the mean time you really want to string him up cause he is mean and arrogant. In the book Dangerous, Kilraven is a FBI agent whose wife and 3 yr old girl were gruesomely murdered 7 years earlier. He'll stop at nothing to bring the killer to justice and using Winnie if he has to to do it. Winnie is  a 911 operator who doesn't have to work for a living because she's rich but does so anyway because of a worth ethic instilled in her at a young age. Winnie has some demons of her own as her mother ran off 12 years earlier with her uncle. Seemingly deserting her at a young age.  Can Kilraven open his heart to love again? Course that's the big question. Will he catch his little girls killer? Read and see. Below is a little bit from Dangerous.

He is every inch the desperado.

Tall, lean and headstrong, FBI agent Kilraven lives by his own rules. And one of those rules includes keeping his hands off Jacobsville’s resident sweetheart, Winnie Sinclair, no matter the temptation. Shy and innocent, Winnie couldn’t handle a man like him—a merciless man with a haunted past. And this small town may hold not only the woman he fights to resist, but the answers to a cold case that is very personal to Kilraven....

Winnie has had her own share of sorrow and senses Kilraven’s pain. Even though she tries to deny it, the gentle 911 operator feels a connection with the darkly handsome agent. When he makes the disturbing discovery that her family’s unsavory past might have a bearing on his case, Winnie is determined to help him crack it...and the ice around his heart.

As they combine forces in a dangerous investigation, the stakes rise ever higher. Winnie’s life is on the line, and she’ll need Kilraven more than ever. But if they are to have a future together, her ruthless Texan will need to confront his past and risk it all for their love.

I really enjoyed this book more than any other Diane Palmer i've read. I give it 3 and 1/2 Modokker Book Pick stars. I don't mind the age difference thing in her books but she makes the male leads more nasty than i could put up with. I actually came to like Kilravin though, the hero in this book. He did have a good reason for the way he was and once he finally got past all that it was good. I'd really like to see her female leads be a bit stronger as well. Many of them are just there to be kicked around it seems. Winnie has some guts in this book so perhaps her newer books aren't as bad in that department. I'm not giving up on reading Diane Palmer just yet.
