Whether writing historical or contemporary fiction, Ms. Garwood is the best and, once again, she does not disappoint. I have read the other books featuring the Buchanans and enjoyed them, so I was looking forward to reading Sizzle and I enjoyed it as much as I did the others.
This time, however, the Buchanan family had more of a background role than in the other books. The connection comes through Sidney Buchanan in that it is Lyra Prescott, her college roommate, who is in trouble and her bodyguard is Sam Kincaid, an FBI agent who saved Alec Buchanan's life.
I liked seeing their interactions and the storyline was as fast-paced as the previous books. I would have liked to see more of Sidney in the book, but that was understandable as it was Lyra's book. Good read and highly recommended!

As the noose of deadly intrigue tightens and the feelings between them deepen, Lyra and Sam must place their faith in each other's hands—and stand together against the malevolent forces about to break loose.
No one mixes life-and-death suspense with feverish desire better than Julie Garwood. In Sizzle she burns hotter and brighter than ever, keeping the action and passion blazing till the incredible,unforgettable end.
