New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood delivers a contemporary romance that's pulse-pounding in every sense of the word.

Dr. Ellie Sullivan has just completed her residency at a large urban hospital. While jogging in a park nearby, she witnesses the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of wanted criminals, a couple identified as the Landrys. The only person to see the shooter's face, Ellie is suddenly at the center of a criminal investigation.

Agent Max Daniels takes over the Landry case. A no-nonsense lawman, he's definitely not the ideal man that Ellie has always imagined, yet she's attracted to him in a way she can't explain.

Ellie heads home to Winston Falls, South Carolina, to attend her sister's wedding. Shortly after she arrives, though, she receives a surprise visitor: Max Daniels. The Landrys have been captured, and she'll be called to testify. But they've been captured before, and each time the witnesses are scared into silence-or disappear before they can take the stand. Max vows to be Ellie's shadow until the trial, and it isn't long before sparks fly.

I loved this book. Attraction, suspense, and humor.....a spectacular combination.

A quick, enjoyable read. Heroine is not TSTL (Too Stupid To Live) and was cool in a crisis, as befits a trauma surgeon. Hero was pretty generic (which is ironic, given the title). You'll flip the pages like crazy pants while you're reading it, even if it doesn't stay with you for long.

Loved this book. Pretty typical Garwood story and likeable characters. Ellie is a brilliant surgeon who loves her job. Max is the hero FBI agent and sparks fly immediately. You know how it will end, but the suspense is the telling of the story.

Julie Garwood is definitely my guilty pleasure author. The books are never going to win any literary awards, but they're just so easy to get through and enjoyable that I can't help myself!

Formulaic & unoriginal. No surprises here as the ending is never in doubt.
