Several years ago, FBI agent Kilraven’s
wife and daughter were brutally murdered. His only thoughts
since have been of revenge. Nothing will get in his way, not
even sweet Winnie Sinclair. When an opportunity arises to
find out who killed his family, Kilraven jumps on it, even
of it means Winnie gets hurt in the process. Winnie has
loved Kilraven for as long as she can remember and she’ll
take whatever she can get from him, even if it’s temporary.
When Winnie’s life is threatened, Kilraven may realize too
late how much Winnie really means to him.
Diana Palmer strikes a winning
combination with Ben and Winnie in Dangerous.
Winnie heals Kilraven’s broken heart and cracks the wall he
has built around himself. In the process, she has to deal
with his obstinate and often over-bearing attitude, though.
The anguish that Kilraven feels is staggering. A lot of his
surliness and single-minded intensity towards finding the
killer is understandable, but there is also a sense that
he’s a guy who takes what he wants and damn the consequences
as well. Winnie gets caught up in a mess that is sure to
break her heart because of her feelings for Kilraven. She’s
a bit naive and a hopeless romantic when it comes to him.
Kilraven knowingly uses her to get what he wants. While
there is a lot of excitement, angst, and drama in
Dangerous, the storyline and dialog are a bit old
fashioned. Even some of the characters admit to it!
