I have never read a Harlequin novel but I image one would read like "Witness"; full of implausible, over the top, two dimensional characters, who are blessed with the most unbelievable talents and capable of the most unbelievable behavior.
There is the domineering, cold hearted, "chief of surgery", evil to the core, mother and her pure, super intellectual, photographic minded, submissive 16 year old daughter, who, in spite of her amazing intellect; she speaks several languages, including Russian, and is wise beyond her years, is completely submissive to her evil mother. Oh, and btw, mom knows nothing of her daughters real interest; in becoming an FBI agent.
Then, this highly intelligent, rational and wise beyond her years hooks up with a 16 girl she barely knows, makes her a false ID, and together they hit the "club scene", knock down 5 "cosmos", hook up with the "hot" Russian club owners, who take them home and she remains standing and able to recall the horrific events that follow.
When the dust settles on the horror of the evening the evil mother appears and behaves like the evil queen in Snow White and when the protagonist is removed to the second safe house in chapter 4, or 5, she is met by a handsome, muscular, deputy in a tight white T-shirt and jeans.
If all this isn't pure Harlequin then I know what is.
