When her father is falsely arrested for passing counterfeit $100 bills, Elaine vows to become a Secret Service agent and track down the man responsible. After barely surviving the arduous Secret Service Training Academy in Laurel, Maryland, she is transferred to bleak and blustery Great Falls, Montana.

In the end, will Elaine find the love and happiness she truly seeks...or will she turn to a life of obscene wealth, power and corruption?

"Good book for those who like a little mystery, a little intrigue, a little romance and an average person as a heroine. I couldn't put this book down. The tone was light and easy going, story well written and easy to follow. Counterfeiting details seem to be well researched, without being boring and technical." – Christine, at Goodreads
"A fun filled rollercoaster Love, revenge, danger, and pride propel the reader through this excellent novel. The protagonist, Elaine, grows throughout this entire story and at each stage the reader can relate to what she experiences. Fantastic read!" – Theresa Fitzgerald, Book Reviewer

i think that readers should know before reading that what they have bought as a series is actually a book and a 120 page teaser for the authors next novel. Well i read the first and wasnt enthralled. next i read as much of the second as i was given. It dealt with the first book's villain. I didn't like him. Although the writer is a man, i suspect that he reads mainly romance novels.
Great reads. Three books in one. Plot twist. Quick fun books...
