Title: If there be dragons

Author: Kay Hooper

Publisher: Bantam Books

Copyright: 1984

ISBN: 978-0-553-59050-0

Series or stand-alone: Stand-alone

Setting: Montana

1st Sentence:

"Please, Cody? You're the only troubleshooter I know."


At the request of his friends, Cody goes to the wilds of Montana to check on Brooke Kennedy, a raven-haired, green-eyed psychic beauty with relationship issues. During the course of a blizzard, Cody breaks down Brooke's defenses - and in 251 pages, they live happily ever after.
There was an overabundant usage of the word "shutter", a lot of adverbs, and even though a psychic was involved, it was way too lovey-dovey ("I love you. I love you, too, darling.") for me. It was, however, a reissue of an older book, so I'm blaming that. I know Hooper is a much better writer than this book portrayed.
