Detective Scarlet Reid has spent the past three months trying to make her alter ego, Ms. December, a ghost of Christmas past. Forced to become the sexy centerfold in a high-stakes undercover assignment, she’s spent more time pulling copies of her naked butt off the bulletin boards at the precinct than she has collaring criminals—and it’s far from over.
A deadly agenda. A gruesome new case has revealed a disturbing trend—one that has placed Scarlet on a list of possible targets. With limited options, she’s going to have to resurrect Ms. December—and her old partnership—which means facing the one man who stole more than just a kiss.
A love worth fighting for. Federal Agent Roman Kinkaid has some explaining to do. His final assignment with Scarlet changed him, and he’s been running from her ever since. But he’s ready to make things right—only he’s not alone. His partner and lover, Special Agent Aiden Cross, is just as invested and determined as Roman is to claim Scarlet as theirs. And they aren’t taking no for an answer, especially when their souls—and Scarlet’s life—are on the line.
They have three weeks to catch the stalker before Scarlet’s time runs out and they lose their one chance at a happy ending.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of voyeurism and a scene including rough penetration.
Publisher’s Note: This book was previously released by Totally Bound under the same title. It has been considerably expanded, revised and re-edited for re-release.
Scarlet, Roman and Aiden are a very HOT trio. I really enjoyed Scarlet’s sassy attitude – she was tough, but soft at the same time. She knew how to take care of herself and was able to play with the best of them.
This had great twists and turns – I loved the mystery within the story. It helped create more depth to each of the characters. While I didn’t really like Roman all that much, in the end, I forgave him.
I liked how Roman and Scarlet’s chemistry ebbed and flowed like a normal relationship. I wish I knew more about Aiden, but overall, these characters meshed well together.
This book combined what I love reading: Sex, Mystery and a happy ending.
Kris sees herself as somewhat obsessive and feels she tends to push the boundaries of common sense sometimes. Her friends graciously see her as passionate and adventurous. After all, speed limits are only a guideline and shouting is just her way of rising above the chaos. Kris loves the outdoors. If she’s not on her computer— or chasing after her three kids— she’s out on a trail somewhere, either running with her dog or riding her mountain bike. Kris took up adventure racing a few years ago, and tries to enter one or two races every year. Kris started writing some years back, and it took her a while to realize she wasn’t destined for the padded room, and the voices chattering away in her head were really other characters trying to take shape. (And since they weren’t telling her to conquer the human race, she went with it.) Kris loves writing erotic novels. She loves heroines who kick butt, heroes who are larger than life, and sizzling sex scenes that make you squirm in your seat, and leave you feeling just a bit breathless.
