OUTSIDER by New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer is the story of Colby Lane (from PAPER ROSE) who is now assistant chief of security under Phillip Hunter at Ritter Oil Corp. in Houston, Texas. He has a running argument with a small girl who is easily his equal in temper, and discovers that her mother is his former wife of one day and one night — but he believes he's impotent and doesn't suspect the child might be his. Meanwhile, he is attracted all over again to her mother, who is leading a double life and has some shocks in store for him. Under the sensual tension is the hunt for hidden drugs being stashed at Ritter's corporation.
Look for cameos by Cash Grier (RENEGADE), Rodrigo Ramirez and Cy Parks and Micah Steele (THE WINTER SOLDIER), Alexander Cobb (MAN IN CONTROL) and a number of other Jacobsville, Texas, residents. A lot of fun for readers who know the backstories, and some more fun watching little Bernadette cut the ex-mercenary down to size while her mother, Sarina, watches with amusement.
