When FBI 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. Months of surveillance and careful planning down the drain, Kincaid’s partner is furious and lets Olivia know that she’s ticked off the wrong guy. After all, he’s FBI.

But Olivia isn’t intimidated by his partner’s bullying because she’s something even scarier…she’s IRS.

And working for the IRS is no picnic. She’s on the trail of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, one that threatens to ruin the lives of naive and unsuspecting victims, and one she has personal reasons to be angry about. But after she asks the wrong people questions, her life is suddenly endangered. She’s accustomed to looking out for others who are weak, but being vulnerable herself makes her realize she needs help. In desperation, she calls Grayson Kincaid.

Together they join forces to fight corruption, but Olivia is also fighting the immediate and intense attraction she feels for Agent Kincaid, and that may be a battle she is bound to lose.

“As always, Ms. Garwood creates engaging characters who come alive page after page. The banter and interaction between Ellie and Max is beyond charming. Ellie is a spirited and strong heroine, and Max is charming in a stoic, gruff sort of way.” —New York Journal of Books on The Ideal Man

“Julie Garwood creates masterpieces every time she writes a book. Indeed, she is the Rembrandt of romance novels.” —The Kansas City Star

“Julie Garwood has become a trusted brand name in romantic fiction.” —People

“It’s [Garwood’s] timely subjects set against a timeless background that attract so many modern readers.” —USA Today

    " By far, the best book from Julie Garwood lately. The characters remind me a little of her original historical series - which are still amongst my favorite to read. "

    " What a delightful story, hero and heroine, Grayson and Olivia. Looking forward to Collins, Jane and Sam's stories too. The Pips are indeed that! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raynell | 1/27/2014

    " Basically, I second every negative review on this book, plus one point. Ms. Garwood (or her ghostwriter) would benefit tremendously from indulging in research and employing a fact-checker. This book reads like a fairy tale: everything is black or white, no grays; and the prose is kindergarten-reading level simple, and as compelling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 3/1/2013

    " Always a guilty pleasure, but I was struck this time around by the over-use of the word "reeked." I'm pretty sure that eyes cannot reek. On the plus side, the heroine had a core group of friends, a change from the rugged and solitary female lead. "
