The fresh and provocative talent of Karen Leabo intrigues us with RYAN'S RESCUE (4), a spiffy romance with a nifty suspense plot in which a senator's beautiful daughter is kidnapped by ecological terrorists. The problem is that when she escapes she can't convince anyone her story is true except for a handsome reporter looking for a hot scoop. Although more could have been made of the suspense plot, Ms. Leabo's cleverly developed romance is a winner.
