Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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

After she witnesses the fatal shooting of an FBI agent, Dr. Ellie Sullivan is targeted by a shadowy criminal couple called the Landrys; and, after Agent Max Daniels pledges to protect Ellie until she takes the witness stand, the two of them find their close quarters leading to passionate feelings.

Library Journal Review

When trauma surgeon Ellie Sullivan witnesses a crime and saves the life of the victim, FBI agent Max Daniels fears she may be in danger from the perps. But Ellie has her sister's wedding to attend and can't put her life on hold, so Max tags along as her "date" and ends up dealing with a stalker, vindictive crooks, volatile family dynamics, and the surprising passion that is rapidly developing between them. VERDICT With her classic combination of easygoing humor, heart-stopping romance, and nail-biting danger, Garwood takes a tough, protective hero and a brilliant, courageous heroine on a risky, romantic journey that will have fans cheering as the good guys win, the bad guys get their comeuppance, and Ellie and Max get their much--deserved happy ending. Garwood (Sizzle) lives in Leawood, KS. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
