Dulcie O'Neil is an idiot. For some reason this particular genre has a common type: stubborn, impulsive, overly emotional, with very poor judgment, an..Show More »d Dulcie just may be its poster child. She acts first and thinks later, ignoring both very good advice and flashing neon signs reading "Don't go in there!" The question isn't so much "how is she ever going to get out of this one," it's "how did she ever get herself into this one." And, that's just her professional side. She comes with as much emotional baggage as dysfunctional family of four. But, she is also highly principled and fiercely loyal to those she cares about. When she puts her own life on the line, it's to help and protect others.
The plots and other characters are interesting and, when Dulcie isn’t getting in her own way, there’s enough suspense to keep the reader engaged. By the third book, Great Hexpectations, it appears our little girl may be growing up. The narrator, Therese Plummer is very good and does a great job of bring all the characters to life.
All and all, I do recommend the series if you don’t mind periodically rolling your eyes and thinking, “For God’s sake, Dulcie, grow up!”
I really honestly love H.P. Mallory's books. The story lines are fun and the characters are not two dimensional. The only character that is rather ann..Show More »oying is.... yep, Dulcie. She's a hot head, we get that, but she never allows anyone else to have an opinion, she's way to quick to assume that all any man wants is a piece of her tush, and yep again, she's way too full of herself and her stunning looks. Let her have a few flaws. It would make her more likable. (the being ridiculously cocky flaw isn't lovable)
I zipped through the first two stories of this series and enjoyed them. This one was a little more "sexy" than I like but still an entertaining read...Show More »..with a MAJOR cliffhanger. Curious to see what Book 4 is like!
Therese Plummer did a very good job bringing these characters to life!
This series is running out of steam. This one wasn't so good. I guess the storyline is hard to stretch or something. I think the narrator's okay, but..Show More » the get up and go has got up and went.
There is A LOT OF SEX in this book. That's not true. There is a lot of TALKING ABOUT SEX in this book. I am not a prude, I understand that there was s..Show More »ex in the rest of the story, but with all of the EPIC WAR going on, there seemed to be much more love and not a lot of war.
