Sexy Agent and Damsel in Distress

FINAL DECISION: This story is unrealistic and simplistic but has larger than life characters and a sense of fun and lightness that are enjoyable. The hero is simply adorable.

THE STORY: In the middle of the night a knock comes on the door of Derek Ross, troubleshooter and sometimes government agent. Derek opens the door to find a beautiful woman dressed in an evening gown. Shannon Brown has come to find Derek after fleeing for her life. Someone is trying to kill h

While I much prefer Kay Hooper's Bishop series over her romantic Hagen series... I still enjoy the Hagen series. That being said I found this book incredibly boring, choppy, and just hard to get into. First Kay Hooper book I've come across I didn't care for.

I loved it !!! This is one of Kay Hooper's old Loveswept books that has been reissued. I have always been a fan of Kay Hooper, especially her Loveswept books that were usually interlinking stories. I have no doubt that this was one of the interlinking books. I'm going to go back and find the other books that this story was related to. Outlaw Derek is the story of Derek and Shannon. Shannon was a little too curious at the company she has been working for and asked questions of the wrong people. S ...more

** 4.5 stars **

Despite the cheesey (sp?) cover here (updated one is MUCH better, lol), this is a really good book! I have read the others in the series & didn't realize this was part of it...it stands alone fine.

Of course, romance is part of the plot, but sonis treason, military weapons, spies, etc...definitely worth the read.

Not much of a review as I am anti-spoilers, but wanted to make sure my fellow readers (Kay Hooper fans) truly do NOT judge this book by its cover! ;-)

Thank you and ENJO

The interpersonal development and the action parts were not well integrated and with the short format neither had enough time in the end to make a convincing story. I didn't go in expecting an amazing read but usually I am more amused by these old romance novels. This one sort of only confused me.

Didn't like this one.
Hard nosed derek falling in love that fast. Not believable.
Though I must admit I didnot see the twist.

For some friends are there through all things good or bad. For others friends are there as long as their own ass is covered. There is a lot more to our Outlaw Derek than meets the eye. Shannon has a lot going on in her little world and things just seem to keep getting worse. All the way to the point she has to decide to leave or stay. Trust or walk to the other side. This one has no Hagen and his pain in the ass schemes or half truths.
