Publisher Description

Whether it's exhilarating historical romance or spine-tingling contemporary suspense, #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood weaves magnificent stories of passion, adventure, and intrigue. Now she raises the heat and spices up the action with a sexy, smart, daring new heroine and a smoldering thriller that's classic Garwood—and pure Sizzle. Lyra Prescott, a Los Angeles film student, is closing in on graduation and facing important decisions about her future. She's already been offered a job at her hometown TV station, an opportunity that could ultimately launch her dream career as a film editor. But heading back home would also mean dealing with her overprotective brothers, social-climbing mother, and eccentric grandmother. Unsure of her future, Lyra dives into work on her final school assignment: a documentary transformed by a twist of fate into a real-life horror film. After she unwittingly captures a shocking crime on camera, a rash of mysterious, treacherous incidents convince Lyra that she's trapped in a sinister scenario headed for a violent ending. Running scared, she turns to her best friend, Sidney Buchanan, whose connections bring dauntless and devilishly handsome FBI agent Sam Kincaid into Lyra's life. As the noose of deadly intrigue tightens and the feelings between them deepen, Lyra and Sam must place their faith in each other's hands—and stand together against the malevolent forces about to break loose.   No one mixes life-and-death suspense with feverish desire better than Julie Garwood. In Sizzle she burns hotter and brighter than ever, keeping the action and passion blazing till the incredible, unforgettable end.

    " I enjoyed this reader, no accent problems and the story was captivating. I really like Julie Garwoods books and have had to previously buy CD's which I find difficult to listen too when wandering around. Or even in car as few cars now have CD or DVD players. The pace of the reading was just how I like it. I know I can adapt but sometimes that makes it too fast or too slow. I recommend this audio to all. So thanks to audiobookstore for the audio. "

    " The first half dragged like crazy. Many characters didn't even meet until a quarter of the way through the story. Lame romance, pretty good mystery. Downloaded it free from the library - you get what you pay for. "

    " This was a good suspense in that it kept me guessing a bit. One young woman suddenly finds herself under FBI protection due to a break-in at her apartment. Throughout the book, we read about the men following her and assume they're all related, but are they? It's a good story. "

    " I'd make this 2.5 stars. I really liked Garwood's historicals, but I realize that authors like to move on. There were some of her fun moments in this one, but they didn't quite compensate for the dragging sections. "

    " This was a standard Garwood contemporary romance. It had a number of new characters with just a few recurring ones. The plot was decently paced, and I enjoyed the parts of the book focused more Lyra's film studies. Overall, it was an entertaining break from every day life. "

    " This author is known for romantic suspenses. Sizzle is a mystery story with a bit of the romantic angle. A film student sets up an automatic camera at a city park, and inadvertantly records a crime. The criminals figure this out and.... It's a fast-moving fun read. "
