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 has 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.
Olivia isn t intimidated by his partner s bullying because she s something even scarier . . . she s IRS.
And working for the IRS isn t for the faint of heart. 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 questions of the wrong people, her life is suddenly endangered. She s accustomed to fighting for the underdog but being vulnerable herself is a very different story. Smart enough to know when to call for reinforcements, she contacts Grayson Kincaid.
Together they make an excellent team 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."

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. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Aug.)
