Excerpt

He closes his eyes for a moment and rasps out, “F***, this isn’t going to work.” His strong hands stop caressing my thighs. He stares at me again, but this time with a glint of anger shining in them. “Jazz. Is that your real name?” I can’t tell if he’s just too turned on or if he’s angry by the way he’s looking at me. “Yes, Michael,” I lie with equal fervor. I never tell a patron my real name. I slide down his body, my knees planted down where my feet once were and I’m straddling his thighs. Face to face. Chest to chest, with a man I want to devour but I shouldn’t have. Neither of us say a word. We stare into each other’s eyes for a long moment while the song finally ends. The strong need to dance evaporates right out of me, and pure hunger for his mouth takes over. I stare into his dark blues eyes, knowing full well I’m might fall—no, drown in them. I lean in a bit, inhale his scent. Can’t tell if it’s cologne or just Michael. Either way, he’s addictive. “I want to kiss you,” he confesses but his words sounds weary to me. “Kiss me,” I whisper back. “Just one kiss. That’s all.” Never taking his eyes off me, he leans in and claims my lips in a searing demand. But just as quickly, he pulls away fast and studies me once more. “Jazz.” This time, my name comes out tight, not the lustful way he said moments before. My splendid euphoria is cut short. I lean back and peer at his handsome face. Trepidation begins to rise inside me when I answer. “Yes?” His eyes turn flat and cold and narrow on me. “Why did you kill my friend?”

 

Las Vegas stripper, Jazz Connolly is wrongly accused of murder and finds out the killer may be her identical twin. With help from a Denver cop Mike Mitchell—the latest victim’s best friend and her accuser, Jazz uncovers facts about her past, a dark secret twisted with lies, and clues to the killer’s true identity.

When Mike finds Jazz on his doorstep, he can’t resist the temptation and helps her track down details of her past. As they uncover clues, he can’t ignore the potent chemistry between them. In this tangled web of chaos, their passion ignites, but can they learn to trust each other? While the body count grows, they will have to fight back, love hard, and survive in order to learn the truth and expose the real killer.
