"Exciting contemporary romantic suspense"
After performing as a superstar in a male world, Quinn
Star quit the old boy network because she could not crash
through the glass ceiling. She blames much of her failure
on her former lover and ex boss "Puff" Lapusky, who she
felt held her back. Quinn enjoys teaching law at
Georgetown and loves her fiancÚ Judge Alexander Duval,
ironically nominated to be the next FBI Director.
For the first time in over seven years, Puff visits Quinn
asking her to serve as a secret service agent protecting
the First Lady Lettie Jaye, who has been acting strange.
The Feds want her under surveillance and protected. Puff
believes that Quinn is the best "man" for the job. The
assignment proves problematical as Lettie uncovers a high
level government conspiracy to hide the truth even if it
means killing the current temporary occupants. The most
difficult aspect of Quinn's job is not keeping the First
Lady safe; it is the return of Puff. She now realizes that
her negative feelings for him were a way of hiding her
hurt because she still loves him.
Fern Michaels is THE REAL DEAL when it comes to an
exciting contemporary romantic suspense. Her latest tale
moves on two intertwined subplots. The romance between
the engaged Quinn and the man she hates and loves Puff,
who should have been fired for messing with a subordinate
(where is Mr. Clinton?) is remedied a bit too easily. The
exhilarating White House suspense plot is filled with
twists that will fool the audience who will enjoy every
moment of the manipulations of those in power. This
exciting romantic political thriller will appeal to fans
who like the works of Nora Roberts and Jayne Ann Krentz
