Summary

Summary

Dear Reader, Welcome to the world of Jamie Swift and Max Holt! My good friend Charlotte Hughes and I have teamed up to create a series of books featuring these two characters and they've taken on a life of their own! These books are not set in the same world as my Stephanie Plum novels, but what they have in common is lovable, dysfunctional characters, villains you love to hate, and a cross-eyed way of looking at life. Jamie and Max have intense chemistry-even though they drive each other crazy. Max thinks Jamie is a magnet for trouble and Jamie thinks Max is the most annoyingly sexy, mysterious man she's ever met. She knows she should stay away from him. But boy, oh boy, do the sparks fly when they get together. Jamie is a newspaper owner from a small southern town. And in Full Speed, she's after the story of a lifetime. Max Holt is right in the middle of that story, and so Jamie tracks down the millionaire playboy, forcing him to take her on as partner. What follows is a story of a corrupt minister, a gang of mobsters on the loose, a hound dog called Fleas, a wise-cracking computer genius, and lots of love in the fast lane. Not to mention plenty of steamy action between Jamie and Max. So have fun with Full Speed. We're going to sign off now and get back to creating more romantic adventures between Jamie Swift and Max Holt. Enjoy and happy reading! Janet and Charlotte

Library Journal Review

In this sequel to Full Tilt, Jamie Swift is on the run from Beaumont, SC, and her job as a newspaper editor and reporter. Millionaire Max Holt owns the newspaper and follows Jamie to Sweetpea, TN. Jamie and Max pose as a married couple to track down the criminal who has threatened Max; a talking computer named Muffin and a dog named Fleas accompany them. Jamie pretends to be a sex addict to trick an evangelist into giving her information, and Max has ample opportunity to use his skills with technology. This series lacks creativity and humor and is quite inferior to Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels. There don't seem to be any sparks between Max and Jamie, though there are many implausible characters and situations. Lorelei King, the narrator for both recordings, reads competently and with enthusiasm. The BBC version has sturdy library packaging; the Audio Renaissance tapes will need to be repackaged for heavy use. Public libraries should buy where demand warrants.-Mary Knapp, Madison P.L., WI (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Excerpts

Excerpts

When newspaper editor Jamie Swift suddenly finds herself minus a fiance and with a major case of the hots for her silent partner, millionaire Maximillian Holt, any bit of predictability goes right out the window. Someones unhappy with Maxs recent business deal dangerously unhappy. Before she knows it, Jamies hotfooting across state lines to help Max and land a story. Posing as husband and wife, with computer genius Muffin and a mutt named Fleas along for the ride, Max and Jamie are in the middle of another crazy case, closer than ever to each other and too close for comfort to the kind of people who will do anything to stop them.
