However, it failed to pack the punch its predecessors did. Sloan Reynolds is an idealistic cop with a perfect life. She has a doting mother, a spunky best friend, a town full of people who either want to be her or be with her. Sloan tells him to go to hell, but a meeting with FBI agent Paul Richardson convinces her to go to Palm Beach, with him posing as her friend, to spy on her father. With time, she begins to fall, not just for Noah, but also his irascible teenage sister, Courtney, and his charming father, Douglas. The rest of the novel follows the pattern McNaught has stuck to in all of her books.

Welcome to Judith McNaught at high voltage -- in her most masterful, enthralling novel yet.
A dedicated and popular policewoman in a small Florida community, petite, blond Sloan values her investigative work more than a Dior dress. As a child, Sloan was aware that the small-town life she shared with her divorced mother was a long way from the rarefied world of privilege inhabited by her socialite father and her elegant sister, Paris. Yet, instead of resenting her sister, Sloan dreamed secretly of being reunited with the family she'd never known.
Total strangers to her, they have never tried to contact Sloan -- until her father's heart attack is followed by a sudden invitation to meet him and Paris, and indulge in the Palm Beach social season. Now, unmoved by his long overdue parental gesture, Sloan ignores the request, until FBI agent Paul Richardson informs her that her father and his associates are being investigated for fraud, conspiracy, and murder. Richardson persuades her to accept her father's invitation, and to bring him along as her "significant other.
Instantly she senses that he is the kind of man she is most afraid of wanting, let alone loving. The intoxicating mix of wealth, glamour, and lush living turns sinister when an FBI informant is murdered and another killing takes a shocking personal toll on Sloan.
