Reader Review: I love the character of Notorious Modern-day Robin Hood here. Also the presentation of daughter's loyalty and love to her father. The works of Julie Garwood is trully brilliant.
Sophie Rose is a crime reporter at a major Chicago newspaper and the daughter of Bobby Rose, a charming gentleman and big-time thief. When asked to write an exposÉ about her notorious father, Sophie quits and goes to work at a small newspaper, covering local personalities such as William Harrington, the 5K runner whose trademark is red socks. Those socks—with Sophie's business card tucked inside—are practically all that's found after Harrington is killed near Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, seemingly in a brutal polar bear attack.
Sophie heads north to investigate, but danger follows in her wake. After one attempt on her life, she's assigned brash but sexy Jack MacAlister as a bodyguard. But Sophie and Jack will soon be fighting more than their growing passion for each other. Powerful forces will stop at nothing to prevent the exposure of the sinister conspiracy Sophie and Jack are about to uncover.

Fire and Ice
Chapter OneA polar bear did him in. The biggest damned polar bear anyone had ever seen in or around Prudhoe Bay in the last twenty-five years, or so it was reported.
Arrogance got him killed, though, and if William Emmett Harrington hadn't been such a narcissist, he might still be alive. But he was a narcissist, and he was also a braggart.
The only topic of conversation William was interested in was William, and since he hadn't accomplished much of anything significant in his twenty-eight years on earth, he was painfully boring.
William lived off his inheritance, a hefty trust fund set up by his grandfather, Henry Emmett Harrington, who must have had an inkling of the lazy-ass gene he was passing down, because his son, Morris Emmett Harrington, didn't work a day in his life. And William happily followed in his father's footsteps.
Like all the Harrington men before him, William was a handsome devil and knew it. He didn't have any trouble getting women into his bed, but he could never lure any of them back for a repeat performance. No wonder. William treated sex like a race he had to win in order to prove that he was the best, and because he really was a narcissist, he didn't care about satisfying his partner. What he wanted was all that mattered.
His past conquests had come up with various nicknames for him. Pig was one. Quick Trip was another. But the one that was uttered most behind his back was The Minute Man. All the women who had gone to bed with him knew exactly what that meant.
Besides self-gratification, William's other passion was running. He'd made it a full-time job because, as with sex, he was shockingly fas...

Sophie Rose lives in the shadow of her infamous father, Bobby Rose. He's a notorious modern-day Robin Hood, suspected of stealing from other nefarious groups and individuals. Sophie is trying to make it on her own without her father's financial assistance. Her best friends, Regan and Cordie, are supporting her independence.
Sophie is a struggling reporter, working for a small city paper, and inadvertently walks into a dangerous assignment. Enter FBI AgentJack MacAlister, Alec Buchanan's partner, who ends up having to provide her protection. Though Sophie is loathe to get involved with a lawman, both cannot avoid the attraction.
The dialogue in the story is snappy and fun. Sophie and Jack are a great pairing and the mystery, while not rip roaring, is interesting enough. The poker games hosted by Alec make for fun interludes, with characters from earlier books in the series making substantive appearances.
I highly recommend this 7th book in the series.
