Publisher's Summary

With her best-selling mix of thrilling twists and characters to cheer for, Fern Michaels delves inside Washington, D.C.'s halls of power - and into the heart of an independent woman driven by passion and bound by duty.

Raised by her loving but eccentric aunt, former F.B.I. agent Quinn Star has always relied on herself - how else could she have survived the Bureau's old boys network, or navigated the heartbreak of a thwarted affair with her boss? Now Quinn risks her life every day in the Secret Service, protecting the First Lady of the United States. Only she can't safeguard her from the ruthless advisors intent on hiding the President's debilitating illness for their political gain. Suspecting a conspiracy that places the fate of the President, his wife - and the nation - on the line, Quinn whisks the First Lady out of the capital to her South Carolina home. But nowhere is truly safe from whoever is pulling the strings in a lethal game designed to keep Quinn from uncovering the truth. And no one can tell Quinn if she should risk her heart when a lover emerges from the shadows of the past....

This is my second Fern Michaels book, love the way she writes and really enjoy the story line. The Real Deal is also a wonderful story but am finding the narrator, Andrea Gallo quite frustrating to listen to as she reads slowly and can hear her swallowing after sentences. I feel as though I want to shout down my iPod to "get a move on"! This has unfortunately changed my rating.

Watch that next turn

Great twist on the happenings in the White House. Have always loved how Fern Michels is able to put a smile on my face in the midst of something adverse taking place.
