TROUBLE is actually two of Linda Howards older books in one. I loved them both, it was like curling up with an old friend....a great comfort book.

MIDNIGHT RAINBOW- Grant (H) is retired from a sercret goverment agency and is trying to get his life back while living on a farm. He was hired by a desperate man who's daughter was being held captive in the jungle of Costa Rica and only Grant was trained enought to get her out. Grant was prepared for some dim whitted bimbo but that's not what he found...more

Linda Howard delivers again! In Trouble, there are two stories told, but reoccuring characters in both. In the first half, Grant Sullivan is hired to rescue a socialite, but she is not what he expects. The danger gets closer and closer, so do Grant and Jane. Action packed from beginning until end...

In the second half, Kell Sabin is on a month vacation, until somebody decides to put him permanetly on vacation. Almost dead, he wshed up on shore to be rescued by the young widow, Rachel Jones. She s...more
I should be reviewing these stories separately because the first one wasn't as good as the second one, which is the reason why I gave this book only 3 stars.

The first story, Midnight Rainbow, was too wordy in my opinion... not enough white space on the pages. You'd go three or four pages before you came across any dialog. Some people prefer a lot of description and thought process, but I'm not one of those people.

The story plot itself was great, and Jane was a fun character since you never knew...more
Hmmm… my biggest issue was something beyond the author's control. I don't know if the publisher had a paper shortage or was just trying to keep the size of the book down but the text is really crowded together, to the point that I couldn't read it for long periods of time.

Beyond that, there were some seriously funny moments in these two stories, particularly the first. (although that statement that the heroine worked like a Trojan had me giggling, I don't think it was meant to be funny)

They were...more
Ugh, these were terrible. I like Linda Howard, but these just show how far she's come since the 1980's. The plots were dated and the attitudes even more so. The first book couldn't hold my interest except for the time warp aspect (microfilm is at the heart of this adventure in espionage!, the second had a rescue breathing technique I'm pretty sure was obsolete even at the time it was written); and while I enjoyed the second one more, the squick factor of the female protagonist falling in love wi...more
Hard hitting romantic suspense. First story have to say my favorite part was Jane Greer's slightly out of the box character, funny thing is that did not like Grant Sullivan until book two in this anthology.

Diamond Bay was my kind of read all the way through, overlooking the fact that my favorite character this time was the German Shephard Joe the rest of the story did a number on my heartstrings. I loved Rachel Jones, she is the most at ease with herself female character that it has been my plea...more

Still my go to author for " comfort" reads.
I love the two couples! Grant is even more lovable for being such a great friend to Kell. Jane is a real gem...her mind is really one if a kind and she'll keep Grant on his toes for sure haha. Rachel deserves her happy ever after as does Kell...when you see s strong man go weak for that special moment, it just makes me go aww...Love the Kell Sabin series.
This book is an omnibus of two classic books by Linda Howard regarding military/special ops members. It had lots of action, gorgeous guys, and the amazing women who love them, a perfect mix!
