Elsa Leone founded Maysville Good Samaritans, a group dedicated to ridding the city of crime, but her involvement endangers her life. She has received threatening phone calls and letters, and was almost killed when a truck tried to run her down. Rafe Devlin, hired as her bodyguard, developed feelings for Elsa when he saved her life a year ago. Could they get in the way of protecting her now? In DOWNRIGHT DANGEROUS (2), Beverly Barton sets up a good foundation for the main characters to build on their growing relationship, but the inclusion of too many secondary characters overshadows their romance and slows the novel's flow.
