From the Publisher
Bestselling author Julie Garwood crafts another tale of mystery and romance with FIRE AND ICE. Sophie Rose is a high-spirited Chicago journalist, whose crime boss father is known far and wide. When Sophie picks up the lead on a story that takes her to Alaska, she is forced to travel with a bodyguard, due to her father's shady reputation. Soon she and FBI Agent Jack Prescott are off on a wild adventure as they try to get to the bottom of Sophie's big story. Despite the danger they face, some rather intense feelings begin to blossom between them. Garwood is the author of the hugely popular SHADOW DANCE.
Journalist Sophie Rose leaves her job at a major Chicago newspaper for a small local paper, but when she stumbles into the middle of a bizarre story, she follows the trail of the mystery north to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, accompanied by bodyguard Jack Prescott.
Editors Note 2
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 Sophie’s business card neatly tucked inside–are practically all that’s found after runner William Harrington’s 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 doesn’t realize is that her father’s infamous reputation has spread even to the far reaches of Prudhoe Bay. Sophie’s 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.
