Sophie Rose, a tough and determined newspaper reporter, is the daughter of Bobby Rose, a suave, charming, and handsome gentleman who also happens to be a notorious big-time thief sought by every law-enforcement agency in the country. When the major Chicago daily where she works insists she write an exposé about her roguish father, Sophie refuses, quits her job, and goes to work at a small newspaper. Far from her onetime high-powered crime beat, she now covers local personalities such as the quirky winner of several area 5K runs whose trademark is goofy red socks.

Those red socks–with Sophie’s business card neatly tucked inside–are practically all that’s found after runner William Harrington’s shredded corpse turns up in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, the victim of a mysteriously dramatic death by polar bear. With an unerring nose for a good story, Sophie heads north to Alaska.

What she doesn’t realize is that her father’s infamous reputation has spread even to the far reaches of Prudhoe Bay. Sophie’s assigned a bodyguard–Jack MacAlister, a sexy FBI agent who grudgingly takes the assignment while recovering from an on-duty injury. But they will soon be fighting more than growing passion.

    " It was an interesting piece with a couple of twists. I wouldn't go crazy to pick it up. A little more "romance" than some of the female suspense writers I have read but entertaining nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 2/20/2014

    " This was a very good book! I enjoyed each chapter! Julie Garwood really nails this story, which keeps you turning the pages to find out more! I enjoyed how no one could find Bobby Rose, who they think is a thief, and all along he can get in touch with his daughter at any time! This is another book that I could not put down, and fell asleep with it open on my bed! I give major kudos to Julie Garwood for writing such a great book! "

    " What a interesting and adventurous story, Sophie and Jack are the couple you would be jealous to see together, their chemisty is to spellbinding, that you wish you can find someone who makes your blood run, like Jack MacAlister, and Sophie Rose "

    " I wish that the love story between Sophie and Jack was more developped. However it was a pleasure to get better acquainted with Sophie and to catch up with Regan and Alex, especially because I started this series with them. I hope that Cordie will have her story and will end up with Aidan. "

    " romantic-suspence between an FBI agent and a reporter (and the daughter of someone whom the police want to talk to), who is doing a story on a man who is supposed to be running a 5k, but ends up dead in Alaska. The ending surprised me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 5/22/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 2/15/2013

    " Audiobook read by Rebecca Lowman. More like 2.5 *. I really didn't care for this one all that much. I didn't connect with the characters as much I normally do in a Garwood. I found the audio rather boring to listen to as well. "
