Virginia is strong-willed, loyal, and hard-nosed. She more often than not repels others and finds satisfaction in her life through her family's business. Fortunately, Virginia is a woman who could change for the right man. She simply needs a man who can... handle her.
Dillon is a man's man in every way - going along with Lori Foster's already set method for writing her heroes. He's strong-willed, intelligent, resourceful and never cruel. Dillon spells out what he wants and then he takes it. Once he reels Virginia in with his sexy body but wimpy facade, he figures she won't know what hit her until it's too late. But he will make sure she's found satisfaction in ways she never previously imagined.
Taken! left me with a warm, fuzzy, feeling. It was so believable, as well - a trait that is often lost in romance novels. The physical attraction that Dillon had for Virginia was sudden while his overall attraction to her was gradual, as it often is in real life. How often do we find ourselves lusting after someone only to find their personality does not match ours, or - if we're lucky - that the other is more our match than we even initially imagined?
With its believable plot, characters with actual character, and fast moving storyline Taken! sucked me in quickly and I loved every minute of it. Foster, not so surprisingly, has hit another ball out of the park with this one.
