    Denise A. Agnew Misses the Mark

    Over the past few years of reading Romantica, I've been a fan of Agnew's. This, however, is -not- a good example of her storytelling skills. DANGEROUS INTENTIONS (2006) is a reworking of a piece originally written in 2001 and the first installment of a 2-part series involving the Taggert Security Team. (If this is a massively improved rewrite, I shudder to think what the 2001 version is like.) I found the female lead character to be extremely annoying and stubborn. While I like independent women, she was down-right rude and for an independent woman, and she had a distinct lack of common sense. The male character was completely awkward as an Alpha Male as well. His distorted sense of women/relationships did not match with his history that supposedly has affected him to disdain both. While I understand this is a work of fiction/fantasy, and this combination of character traits is somewhat important to the plot (which I also found to be the over-used and over-done "rich girl needs a bodyguard"), there were many times where I wanted to fling my Nook away in disgust with what a horrific example of the female gender she was. Even fiction needs to have -some- plausibility and I found myself repeatedly rolling my eyes as I read. In addition, if you are a follower of Ellora's Cave Romantica, this novel does not subscribe to the typical formula regarding the intimacies of the characters (frequency/quantity). The romantic relationship between the characters does not begin (other than poignant looks and reflexive body reactions) until more than halfway through the work.

    If you're looking for strong likeable characters, passionate scenes, and well constructed plotlines, I recommend the Special Investigations series of Agnew's, or even to try author Lora Leigh as an alternative.
