GENRE:  Mystery

A detective has a smooth-talking heartbreaker for a client, but there’s a problem.

Quinn has scorch marks from her last relationship and plenty of chemistry with Ben, but he could have killed his twin brother. He demands to work the case with her, claiming it’s his life on the line.

A partner is the last thing Quinn wants. What she wants is to prove him innocent. But she’s finding plenty of evidence he isn’t.

Enjoy an Excerpt:

The Starlight bar’s back door was unlocked, and the old door creaked like a rusty garden gate. If Kat was already there, she knew someone had arrived. Quinn ran through the corridor and past Ben’s dark office toward a light burning over the mixologist workstation. Ben was dropping orange peels into a steaming pot of water and wearing earbuds. He was humming softly to himself.  

“Ben,” she yelled as she raced up the steps to join him. 

He turned around and jerked out the earbuds. “What’s going on?”  

Suddenly, the lights went out, plunging the bar into the dark. The only light came from the gas flame flickering under the bubbling pot. “Call the police,” Quinn said.  

“It’s okay. It’s the storm. I have a flashlight around here somewhere.” Ben bent over and pulled a light out from under the counter.  

Quinn whirled around to stare into the back hall. She’d heard something, but it was black as pitch, and she couldn’t see.  

Ben must have heard it, too. He aimed the powerful flashlight into the hallway. “Who’s there?”  

The overhead light flickered once and came on, and the hairs on the back of Quinn’s neck rose.
