FINAL DECISION: The story isn't complex and neither are the characters, but I love the story for its clear good and evil stance. The characters are fun to read and the stories are a fun.
THE STORY: Rafferty Lewis the the attorney for the wealthy Josh Long. Rafferty, along with Josh and his friends/employees got "drafted" into helping a secret government agency. Rafferty's time has come up to help. He has been sent on a mission to masquerade as a newlywed and travel to a war torn South American country to retrieve some information for the U.S. government. HIs partner is Sarah Cavell to whom Rafferty is immediately attracted. The two have to work together to complete their mission without allowing their attraction to get in the way.
OPINION: I love this series of books because of the memorable characters. The stories are larger than life and at times too incredible to be believed, but the romance is heartfelt and the characters are fun. The hero and heroine are not very complex characters -- they are the good guys and it shows, but I have always liked how the story comes together. The appearance of the other characters from the series is also welcome as it gives more depth to the story. Just a fun read.
WORTH MENTIONING: This book was originally written as a category romance written in the 1980s. The story reflects the types of category romances being written at the time.
CONNECTED BOOKS: RAFFERTY'S WIFE Is the second book in the Hagen series. It can be read as a standalone, but I think readers will enjoy it better understanding what happened in book one.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4.5 stars.
This one on the other hand, was awful. It was not believable in any way, shape or form. I found myself increasingly disappointed as I read further into the book. Forgive me if I seem like I had too high of expectations in a romance novel, but it seemed like the detail was lacking.
Two people thrown together into a situation, speak two sentences with one another and instantly they are talking of marriage and "forever". It just seems like Kay Hooper is expecting us to just believe this quick jump of storyline wholeheartedly, which is just too much to ask so early in the book. There is no back story, no buildup....just two people (who have never had serious relationships up to this point in their lives, at the ages of 30-35) that `magically' let down all their walls and instantly know each other's ins and outs right away. I'm sorry, I just need more than that.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Kay Hooper's books. I have read `Finding Laura', `The Wizard of Seattle', and `Out of the Shadows' so many times I could recite it front to back. I suppose that's why I am so disappointed by this book.

Eigentlich sollte es ein gewöhnlicher Auftrag werden für Rafferty Lewis. Doch trotz allen von Hagen getroffenen Vorkehrungen kommt die Liebe dazwischen, diesmal in Gestalt der hübschen Sarah Cavell. Doch die Gefahren lassen nicht lange auf sich warten...
Romanze und Krimi treffen wieder einmal aufeinander in einer unwiderstehlichen und unvergesslichen Mischung.
