An FBI agent and a lawyer are falling in love—and making a federal case out of it in #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood’s hot romantic thriller.
When Special Agent Grayson Kincaid first encounters Olivia MacKenzie, she makes quite an impression. The beautiful, tough young attorney has stumbled into the middle of an FBI sting operation and reduced it to chaos. Olivia has ticked off the wrong guy. He’s FBI. But Olivia is even more intimidating. She’s IRS.
Olivia is on the trail of an elaborate Ponzi scheme for her own very personal reasons, and her investigation has enraged some ruthless people and endangered her life. She’s no stranger to tight situations, but she’s smart enough to know when to call for help, especially if that help is tall, dark, and handsome.
Together, Grayson and Olivia make a great team to fight corruption, but they’re also fighting an intense attraction—the one battle they’re bound to lose.
In this intrigue-laden, passion-filled romantic thriller, beautiful IRS attorney Olivia Mackenzie is committed to making the most of her life, alone. Though she has recovered from her childhood illness, Olivia won't let anyone get close enough to suffer with her should her condition recur, and her abusive father has taught her not to trust anyone. When she meets handsome FBI agent Grayson Kincaid after a crooked businessman mistakes her for an agent and assaults her, her resolve begins to weaken. Grayson seems to understand Olivia's fears regarding her outwardly charming but vicious parents and the lengths they will go to protect their own wealth and prestige. As Grayson protects Olivia after further attempts on her life, they both become increasingly aware that the attraction and concern they feel for one another shows no sign of abating. Some cumbersome writing weighs down the story, but a great plot with strong characters and red-hot romance will keep readers engaged.
I want to know about this group of girls and there lives after their illnesses.
Engaging characters. I laughed out loud and chuckled at the personality traits; conversations were vivid emotional depth was clearly attained. Loved it!
Julie Garwood is my very favorite author of all time. She’s funny, witty, and a great story teller. I can’t put her books down, and have read every single one of her books. Wish she’d write more, I would buy them! I especially love her early pieces from the 1100 time period.
