About this ebook

Michael Buchanan will need every bit of his extensive skill set when he appoints himself as bodyguard to a woman determined not to need one in this thrilling new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.

Grace Isabel MacKenna has a hundred things to do today. Killing someone isn't one of them. It is supposed to be a quick visit to Boston for the Buchanan anniversary party, then on to Scotland to collect an inheritance. She checks into her hotel and then decides to go for a brisk walk. But after getting lost, she ends up with a wounded man stumbling into her arms—and his shooter coming after them both. When she fires back in self-defense, she doesn’t expect him to drop dead. After Isabel endures an interrogation by police, she is free to go, thanks to the Buchanans dispatching former Navy SEAL and now lawyer Michael Buchanan to assist her.

Isabel knows she should be grateful for Michael’s help, but since she’s harbored an extreme dislike for him for years, gratitude is difficult to muster. Michael has appointed himself her de facto guardian, and she’s stuck with him despite their constant bickering and sizzling attraction. Even when Isabel goes to Scotland to claim her inheritance, Michael follows her—but he isn’t the only thing she can’t shake. Mysterious threats against Isabel surface, and before they can deal with their growing feelings for each other, Michael and Isabel must first survive.

If it didn't have Julie Garwood's name on the cover, I never would have thought it was hers. It wasn't written in her voice, and the characters were missing depth. I will reread the book. Maybe I will find something I missed on the first reading. I love her books so I hope so!! Rest in peace 🙏. 💞 you will be missed 😢!!! I've reread this book and liked it a little more than the last 2 times. No matter what, I'll always be glad I have this book. After all, it's a Julie Garwood story!! 😍

Not a usual Julie Garwood book. The only saving grace of it is it includes some members of the Buchanan family but not all are as they were. The ghost writer forgot that in "Slow Burn" Kate and Jordan are the best of friends.They didn't even have a conversation in this book.Kate's character seems to be uncaring.Isabel's seems to be fickle minded, stupid and gullible. Wouldn't include this in my JG collection. This ghost writer doesn't work for Julie. Seems like she didn't even read the previous book in the series. I still finished the book but only because I never leave any book unfinished. Unlike before, you didn't want the story to end and you're left wanting more. I was only half way through and I was already wishing for the story to be over.Very disappointing especially since I'm a huge Julie Garwood fan.

This doesn't feel like julie garwoods usual writing. I'm dissappointed just reading the sample and won't be purchasing the book. Her previous works were tremendous compared to this latest one.
