Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sophie Rose, a tough and determined newspaper reporter, is the daughter of Bobby Rose, a suave, charming, and handsome gentleman who also happens to be a notorious big-time thief sought by every law-enforcement agency in the country. When the major Chicago daily where she works insists she write an exposé about her roguish father, Sophie refuses, quits her job, and goes to work at a small newspaper. Far from her onetime high-powered crime beat, she now covers local personalities such as the quirky winner of several area 5K runs whose trademark is goofy red socks.

Those red socks-with Sophies business card neatly tucked inside-are practically all thats found after runner William Harringtons shredded corpse turns up in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, the victim of a mysteriously dramatic death by polar bear. With an unerring nose for a good story, Sophie heads north to Alaska.

What she doesnt realize is that her fathers infamous reputation has spread even to the far reaches of Prudhoe Bay. Sophies assigned a bodyguard-Jack MacAlister, a sexy FBI agent who grudgingly takes the assignment while recovering from an on-duty injury. But they will soon be fighting more than growing passion.

From the Compact Disc edition.

Synopsis:

Sophie Rose, a tough and determined newspaper reporter, is the daughter of Bobby Rose, a suave, charming, and handsome gentleman who also happens to be a notorious big-time thief. The major Chicago daily where Sophie works insists she write an expose about her roguish father. Instead, she refuses and quits, going to work at a small local newspaper. When a local human interest story takes a bizarre twist, Sophie's journalistic instincts are aroused, and she follows the mystery north to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.

Because her father's infamous reputation has spread far and wide, Sophie's assigned a bodyguard--Jack Prescott, a sexy FBI agent. Amid great danger and brutal intrigue, she and Jack form an uneasy alliance-- one sparked with intense attraction. But they will be fighting more than growing passion for each other: Powerful forces will stop at nothing to prevent the exposure of the far reaching conspiracy they are about to uncover.
