#8 IN THE SERIES OF THE SPEAR AGENTS!

Margaret Watson can definitely write a well put together story but this one leaves a lot to be desired.Marcus Waters, introduced in the previous story, is supposed to be a loner -- he sure loses it. Marcus fears emotionaly entanglement but tends to have the hormones of a 17 year old. [35 and he is at it almost every night? yeah! right!]Jessica Burke, a really smart, well educated woman, for 21, is finally a woman who doesn't wilt at the thought of her man living a dangerous life. She will deal with it. Marcus opens Pandora's box when he takes Jessica's virginity, which she willingly offers. Now they are bed hopping every time they touch?? What ever happened to the plot with Simon??Again he is a shadowy figure and all the action stems from his minnions and their capture. Could have all been written in two chapters.Marcus's partner, SPEAR agent Russell Devane is set up for the next book when Steve Trace bites the dust. Finally a little bit of reality. You need to check out these characters.Golly gee, you can bypass this book and still follow the gist of the SPEAR series. Poor Marcus gets lost in all that hands on, touchy, feely -- his character needed more action [in the field].Ah well, on to the next in the SPEAR saga -- #9 THE ENEMY'S DAUGHTER by Linda Turner and the SPEAR Agent, Russell Devane as he invades Simon's territory.

She was worth a small fortune

Kidnapped by order of a man called Simon, the young and sheltered girl would provide some much needed money, which the traitor finds himself in desperate need of. But Jessica Burke, a brilliant scientist, manages to escape her kidnappers and swim to the shores of Cascadilla where SPEAR Agent Marcus Waters is "vacationing" and lying in wait for Simon. The moment he rescues Jessica, he is attracted to her fresh-faced beauty, innocence, and implicit trust. He vows to protect Jessica from harm including the feelings he has for her which leaves her endangered and him disarmed. Margaret Watson's installment of the "Year of Loving Dangerously" series implies that there will be a great deal of suspense, if not action. But this proves to be misleading. Though Simon is indeed determined to hold Jessica for ransom, it is only because he is strapped for cash. Jessica is merely a small fish in a pond beyond her comprehension. Most of the action that takes place is derived from the tension between Marcus and Jessica, which stems from their mutual attraction for each other. The action doesn't pick up for most of the story. Fortunately for the author, this allows for some much needed development in the relationship these two share. Marcus, who is considerably older than Jessica, is hard-edged and cynical. This shell protects a noble heart that understands the heavy price that comes with loving someone. Jessica is his polar opposite but she is intellectually wise beyond her years. What makes their love credible is not the heightened and unusual circumstances in which they meet but the give and take Watson illustrates between the two which makes them better and more admirable characters as a team than they are apart.
