Ginger grew up way too early. She had to. Her mother was worthless, her father non-existent, and she had a little sister to feed and protect. There is nothing Ginger wouldn’t do for her little sister and she’s proven it over and over. Now she’s doing the best thing ever; getting them both far, far away. Just her luck she moves in across from Derek Tyler, gorgeous alpha extraordinaire. And she likes him, much to her chagrin. Or at least her girly parts do. How to hide her past while building a future?
Derek doesn’t do involvement but can’t seem to help himself when he meets the mouthy new neighbor. She lights him up like a Christmas tree, but she also sets off his radar. Being a detective he does what he does best, and then determines he’s in for the long haul. Now he just has to keep Ginger from running.
OMG this was an awesome read. I’m waaaayyy stingy with my 5 rating but this was just that good. Derek had me drooling from the get go, and that man can talk dirty. This was a suspenseful read that also provided emotion, secondary character stories, and some scalding hot sexual tension all building up to the big bang. This promises to be an author who will be an auto-buy for me. Highly recommended.
She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.
The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds—$50,000 to be exact—could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...
Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain—Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste.
And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law.
