More than anything else, Amy Wells wants to be a Colby secret investigator, not some administrative assistant filing paper for the best in the business. She knows she'd be good at it. Driven. Daring. And with a heap of self-confidence, she has what it takes to bring down the bad guys. Now, if only she could convince her boss...
But when Amy's entangled in a case of mistaken identity, she suddenly finds herself on her first assignment--figure out what makes gorgeous oil tycoon John Robert Calhoun IV tick. Out of loyalty to his father--and with the country's oil industry at stake--he's about to agree to an arranged marriage to seal the merger of a lifetime. But what skeletons is he hiding? And what should Amy do about her attraction to the Texan cowboy who's wrangled her heart?

About the Author
At the age of nine, Debra began writing stories for the characters who lived in her too-vivid imagination. By 18 she had turned wife, mother, and career woman, leaving her writing behind. But those imaginary characters just wouldn't go away.
For the next 18 years she did everything from managing a Captain D's seafood restaurant to holding an executive secretarial position at NASA, while the characters and their stories continued to traipse around inside her head. Eventually they just had to come out and Debra began the journey that would take her to where her heart had been all along - writing romance.
Debra was born in Alabama, but now lives in Tennessee. Her journey, however, wasn't a simple trek northward to the Volunteer state. First, Debra, her husband, and oldest daughter did a little traipsing of their own. From Texas to Berlin, Germany, Debra followed her husband's military assignments. Finally landing in Tennessee, they had their second daughter and settled for the rest of their lives in a small community they fell in love with on sight.

Amy Wells works as a personal assistant at the Colby Private Investigator Inc.. Her dream is get out from behind the desk and become a sleuth. Alas however her employers see her as a great electronic and paper filer not as one who works undercover obtaining the information................................ Amy delivers a background check that her agency made on oil tycoon John Robert ¿JR¿ Calhoun to their client his potential father-in-law. JR has never met his fiancée having agreed to marry at the pleading of his father to save his big oil company with this merger. However he mistakenly believes that Amy is his future bride. She goes along with his misconception expecting to learn his dark secrets like Mafioso ties that would subsequently prove to her boss that she deserves to be an investigator. As Amy and JR become acquainted they fall in love, but she knows he is engaged to someone else............................. The plot device has been done a zillion times and the fact that the hero has never even seen a picture of his fiancée though both are offspring of big oil sounds like a Democratic Party effort to expose VP Cheney. Still the mistaken identity story line is fun to follow because of impulsive intrepid and ingenuous Amy who will have readers rooting for her. JR (no one would dream of using that as a nickname of a Texas oil mogul) is a solid counter to Amy. ROMANCING THE TYCOON is a fine Colby romance just not as strong as the previous ones (see GUARDING THE HEIRESS, STRIKING DISTANCE and KEEPING BABY SAFE).................... Harriet Klausner
