He has a dead body. She has the seedy connections. To solve the crime they are forced to work together.

To keep her mother’s reputation from destroying her, Ashley Dix Gibson had to learn at an early age to persevere and tune out the lies, gossip, and the bullies. Detective Michael DeMarco has no desire to team up with a woman with ties to the underbelly of the porn industry but if he wants to solve his case, he has no other options. When Ashley and DeMarco combine their resources to find a brutal killer, sparks of distrust turn into the fires of passion.

The house was large. Actually--more than large. A mansion with dozens of rooms upstairs and many more on the ground floor. I took the long way, thinking I would give a light tap on Jillie’s door, just in case she was in and maybe had company keeping her occupied. There was a staircase, just past Jillie’s room, down to the kitchen. More for the use of the household staff, but Jillie didn’t have anyone who lived in so it was only used when the help came on their usual days.

Sucker punched. The odor. Undeniable. Unmistakable.

Knowing it wouldn’t make a difference, I prayed to the gods for a break. There wasn’t a chance it was anyone but Jillie, but for once, I found that small molecule of hope glowing in my heart. Hesitating, just for that moment, I gathered my strength.

The master suite was down a short hallway opposite the dining room. The hallway narrowed and lengthened. A scream inside my head ordered my legs to move. Great, now Master Sergeant Craven was in my head. I forced myself forward.

I knew what to do at a crime scene. I’d been an MP for the last four years and had seen more than I wanted to.

My stomach rolled and pitched.
