Format: Mass Market Paperback
After performing as a superstar in a male world, Quinn Star quit the old boy network because she could not crash through the glass ceiling. She blames much of her failure on her former lover and ex boss "Puff" Lapusky, who she felt held her back. Quinn enjoys teaching law at Georgetown and loves her fiancé Judge Alexander Duval, ironically nominated to be the next FBI Director.

For the first time in over seven years, Puff visits Quinn asking her to serve as a secret service agent protecting the First Lady Lettie Jaye, who has been acting strange. The Feds want her under surveillance and protected. Puff believes that Quinn is the best "man" for the job. The assignment proves problematical as Lettie uncovers a high level government conspiracy to hide the truth even if it means killing the current temporary occupants. The most difficult aspect of Quinn's job is not keeping the First Lady safe; it is the return of Puff. She now realizes that her negative feelings for him were a way of hiding her hurt because she still loves him.

Fern Michaels is THE REAL DEAL when it comes to an exciting contemporary romantic suspense. Her latest tale moves on two intertwined subplots. The romance between the engaged Quinn and the man she hates and loves Puff, who should have been fired for messing with a subordinate (where is Mr. Clinton?) is remedied a bit too easily. The exhilarating White House suspense plot is filled with twists that will fool the audience who will enjoy every moment of the manipulations of those in power. This exciting romantic political thriller will appeal to fans who like the works of Nora Roberts and Jayne Ann Krentz

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sally N. Crowe on September 11, 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fern Michaels is one of my favorite authors, and she does it again with The Real Deal! Quinn Star (what a great name!) engaged to a boring judge, steps out of the realm of everyday life in protecting the eccentric, wacky, First Lady of The United States. However, the First Lady is right on the map about her husband. Who would know better than she that the love of her life is in trouble?

I was intrigued with the tunnel that runs between the two houses in South Carolina, and I just had to laugh out loud at Quinn's (also wacky) Aunt Birdie who enjoys "doctoring" up dead people!

You can always tell when reading Ms. Michael's books that she is a canine advocate. Although I'm not real intrigued with dogs myself, I do enjoy the escapades that show up in the books by this author. I highly recommend this book for a lazy summer afternoon.

This is the first of Fern Michaels I've read and I just could not take this book seriously. first of all the whole so called scam in the white house was so ridiculously far-fetched and the dialogues were so jumbled that you could literally forget how it actually started especially when the first lady rambled on and on. the characters of agent Star and Wilson were so not of women aged 40 and who have such serious top-notch jobs, they were so immature. but im willing to try more of her books...lets see.

As always a great story with a great ending. I have learned so much from Fern Michaels Books. I found my first book @ the recycling center in a dumpster, I grabbed the book, for it had a Yorkie on the cover, I now am trying to read all her books & went to a Kindle, so I am a #1 fan of hers & have not read one bad book! I must say the "Sisterhood Series" should be on the Hallmark Channel or a mini series on TV! Thank you for getting me back to reading everyday!!!

Some people choose strange things to do for their jobs like Birdie, but things finally worked out for Quinn. It is book I don't think I will read a second time like I usually do with ll Fern Michaels books, but do give it try at least once.

Had already read it and loved it. Will probably pass this on to someone else so they can enjoy it as well.
