5.0 out of 5 starsAwesome!!!
Reviewed in the United States on January 10, 2015
Diane Palmer is one of my favorite authors. I love her books. They make laugh, they make me cry and the romance in them is awesome. This is about an attorney that witnesses something that a drug lord stated. So she is sent into hiding, because there is a threat on her life. So she sent to this farm to work. At this farm there is a government agent there, but neither of them know about each other. This agent is also trying to bust the drug lord. So she thinks that he works for this drug lord and that he is the hit man. He is in love with his ex partner and when ever she comes over he is very happy until he hears that she is expecting. He then talks this lawyer into marrying him to ease his pain. He makes all these nasty remarks about to his ex partner and she hears it. He doesn't think that she is educated and calls her a country hick. She decided to leave. After she leaves, they run into to each other and he is always saying nasty things to her. He realizes that he does love her and in the end he does get her back.

Gloryanne Barnes is a highly respected assistant prosecutor for the San Antonio office. She has had a perfect record for convictions of gang members and drug smugglers up to now, when she lost the case against Fuentes the new drug lord. She was sitting in the hall when Fuentes came out of the courtroom and couldn't resist bragging about his victory. He sat down beside Glory and boldly threatened her. Sadly for him, Glory had been wearing a court-sanctioned wire at the time. He was arrested and released the very next day. Fuentes had put a contract on Glory earlier, and as she left the courthouse, a bullet missed her head. It was such a close call that Detective Marquez decided to relocate Glory to a safer place.
Detective Marquez worked out an arrangement with Jason Pendleton that allowed Glory to work on his farm, which was near Jacobsville, the small town where she had grown up. Neither Glory nor Det. Marquez had any idea she was right in the middle of the drug smugglers' investigation until it was too late.
Glory arrives at the Pentleton's farm only to be insulted by Rodrigo Ramirz, an under cover DEA agent, although neither, he or Glory knew anything about each other's identity or purpose. Rodrigo, the hero was always complaining, treated Glory very cruel throughout the book only toward the end did he redeemed himself, but by then I was forcing myself to finish Fearless. Rodrigo was in love with a married woman and he liked to describe to Glory how perfect she was. Several of her books the hero turned out to be too rough or too aggressive toward heroine. I' am very disappointed in her last two books.
Fearless, could stand alone. Although, I would recommend to read Outsider first before Fearless. Paper Rose, Once in Paris were excellent books.
One of my favorite books by this author, I have it in paperback and now on my kindle. I give Gloryanne credit for her forgiveness of her husband, very cruel, but I have seen and heard real life people talking like that to one another. Like.

Typical Diana Palmer. Nasty cantankerous man, virginal woman, find love after months/years of him being verbally abusive. UGH. Don't know why I keep reading them as I remember why they get on my nerves early into the reading.

Another disappointing read from DP. I was so looking forward to this book because we have had little tip bids about Rodrigo in a few previous books, so I was very curious about him, however, unfortunately both the plot and the H, didn't lived up to mine expectations. He was actually one of the worst H I have ever read so far.
3.0 out of 5 starsBetter but still room for improvement
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 2, 2009
Not as bad as I was fearing given some of the previous reviews and the last couple of DP releases.
However, that said it took ages for the story to get going, then the charactors suddenly decide to get married then divorce about two pages later. The hero then realizes he's made a mistake gets kidknapped and rescued (again in about 2 pages) and they get back together with not much effort.
This book would have been better if the final couple of chapters had focused on the characters getting to know each other as they were in reality before the epilogue and finish of the book - especially given that the hero spent most of the book pining for someone else and telling everyone why he would never want Glory!
That all sounds very negative but a major plus - Glory was at least not a total wimp and was allowed to have some humour and guts that made us like DPs heroines in the first place - however she does have the usual traumatic childhood.
