Man in Control by Diana Palmer

Ever since DEA agent Alexander Cobb had given Jodie Clayburn a Texas-size brush-off, they'd been sworn enemies. But eight years later, an undercover operation brought them back together again. This cynical Long, Tall Texan couldn't believe the baby-faced schoolgirl was now an understated beauty who electrified his senses and his heart. Or that she'd help him crack the drug-smuggling case that threatened all of Jacobsville. Tantalized to the core, Alexander would risk everything to possess—and protect—the untouched young woman. This fearless secret agent always got his man—or in this case, woman. But this time, would the man in control get caught in his own web of danger…and desire?

This is an older story, and not bad, but just strange to read considering the change in the romance genre recently. It was the usual angst driven love story with rich man and young virgin. It's the kind of story Diana Palmer does best, so if you're looking for an easy, mindless read, this is a good one.

Handsome,rich, older hero determined never to marry, combined with the innocent, morally conservative, younger heroine crushing massively on him. Only when the h faces grave danger does the H admit his love for her. Yes, Ms. Palmer has told the story before, but reading her books is like watching a Shakespeare play; you know from the start how it will end, but the enchantment comes from finding changes - even slight nuances - that make each version fresh and interesting. Plus, the inclusion of details about characters known from previous books keeps everything new. She is a good storyteller, her plots are strong, characters believable, plus, she includes just enough detail on science, technology, and business/social/political events to keep the stories current. I just love her Texas stories.

Walking from the medical bay after my weeks of bed rest was a blessing. Everything was cleared and l was ready to go back to work. Vengence once said it was a unwise choice to go right back at it. I disagree. I was heading to the combat room for some early training. I would spend hours in their at time before the attack. Now i need to train to get away from the scary nightmares. Holograms poped up a few minutes later. I went at them swinging. I punched a "con" hologram in the face before bashing my knee into the metal gut of the guy. "Not bad." I spun around aiming for the mech that startled me. "Calm down i'm on your side!" The silver mech put his hands up in surrender. "Sorry l dont like being startled and right after the..." l didnt finish my sentance. "Its understandable. I am Sideswipe. Its a pleasure to meet you." He responded with a cheerful tone. "Silentecho." I replied softly. I bid my good bye quickly sprinting out of the combat room. I ran into Vengence. Just my luck. "Why are you running Echo?" "Oh , hey Vengence. I'm not running just...moving at a slightly fast pase." I replied. He gave me a look. "Echo.." "It's fine you big over protective bear." He gave a grin. "Aww but who else would care for you." He said. I shrugged and waved good bye to him. I made my way to the medical bay with regreat. "Ratchet...You in here?" i called out. I heard a grumble coming from deep in the bay. "You and your brother on my last nerve Sideswipe. " Ratchet yelled. I gulped. Sunstreaker and Sideswipe were known for their extream pranks and their tag team in battle but put against Ratchet. Not so pretty. Their was a yelp. I cringled only imagining what was going on. "Ratchet" l yelled. I heard a crash and winced. I walked further in and yelped when a wrentch hit my helm. "Ratchet", l whined rubbing the area. "Sorry", came his gruff responsive. "My weapons, were they put in my room?" I asked softly. I looked down from the watching optics of Sideswipe. Rathets tone softend."Echo they are. I had the trigger happy one put them their." "Thank you Ratchet." I barely whispered before basicly turning and quickly running out of their. I heard some along the lines off "Shes kinda cute" come from Sideswipe before a loud crash came across metal hitting metal. "To cute for you trouble maker", Ratchet grumbled. Good old Ratchet is just like an over protective uncle. A small smile graced my lip plates. Optimus was out to go see family. I think he mentioned about having a baby sister he wanted to see meaning that no one would be in the data room. I made my way to the data room and started to read on the golden age. I got settled down smiling as l continued to read the data pad. Something beeped. I looked up smiling. Little Spark was curled up by me. I gently petted his spiky metal furish frame." Aww come to keep me company little one." He responded with a soft tap of his tail. My optics started to close as l faded into a peaceful recharge. My recharge was filled with horror. Nightmares of what would have happened had the autobots not gotten me. Nightmare of Megatrons evil presence burned into my head as i turned restlessly in the chair that which I had fallen in statis on. I awoke with a start to dark blue optics staring straight into mine.
