One missing boy could be his redemption…
Detective Newman—well, not a detective anymore—wants to be left alone to lick his wounds after his life fell apart. He can’t blame anyone but himself. When a gorgeous woman with vibrant pink hair and a sassy attitude knocks on his door, he doesn’t want anything to do with her. Except Amelia Benedict doesn’t understand the word no. Her brother is missing. The police refuse to help because they believe he ran away. But she knows her brother is in trouble and insists he’s her only hope. He’s definitely not the right guy for the case. He’s nothing but bad news, and if Amelia sticks around, he’ll destroy her as he destroyed himself.
Warning: This novel contains a sexy hero. He’s not a detective anymore, but he didn’t lose his sexiness. You know you don’t wanna miss his story! Happy reading!
He didn’t want this woman in his cabin, his domain, begging him for help. He didn’t want anyone here or even near him.He was a virus. A disease. Bad luck. No matter where or what he did in life things always went to shit. And if he tried to help her find her brother, nothing good would happen.You might say you’re not a detective, but you miss it. You miss the thrill. The chase. You miss being a part of something.He hated how what she said was true. Too damn much. He missed his old life. His friends. His job. That feeling he was making a difference one case at a time.So maybe he didn’t always infect and destroy things. He and Sauer closed quite a few cases, some tough ones they almost gave up on.But damn it. She didn’t know him. She might’ve hit a sensitive spot, a few things ringing true, but she didn’t know him.Nobody did.“I’m not leaving.” She crossed her arms in defiance.A corner of his lip curled up before he realized what he was doing, immediately turning his smile into a frown. He would not let this woman get under his defenses with her bold attitude. He didn’t care how much he admired her assertiveness. Not simply admired it either. It turned him on. It was hot as hell.And her pink hair… He liked it. She reminded him of a fairy. But not a sweet, docile fairy flying around spreading pixie dust and happiness. More like a warrior fairy, soaring through the world with one thing on their mind. Fortitude. To make the world a better, safer place.What the hell was he thinking?Was there such a thing as a warrior fairy?He was losing his goddamn mind.“I’ll toss you out if I have to. I can’t help you.” Then he crossed his arms in mockery.Her eyes narrowed, two tiny slits piercing him with a death glare worthy of skewering him with one touch. “You can, you’re just refusing to. There’s a difference. Go ahead and touch me. I dare you.”He snickered. “Sweetheart, you don’t want me touching you. You won’t like it.”Neither would he. Not because he was afraid he’d hurt her, but because he was terrified he'd pick her up and carry her to his bedroom. He hadn’t touched a woman in three months. It was like a drug. A sweet, sickening drug that needed to be fueled at all times. He hadn’t had a dose of anything in forever. He needed a fix. With her enticing, defiant attitude, she made it easy to want, to crave a touch of her sweet, delectable body.A sassy smile spread across her juicy red lips as if she knew exactly what he was thinking. “I might like it.” Then her smile disappeared. “But my name is Mel, not sweetheart.”Whoa. Whiplash. One second teasing, then firm about what he should be calling her.He didn’t need this irritation in his life. Letting his arms drop to his sides, fisting his hands tightly, he nodded at the door. “Get out. I’m not helping you.” (Copyright © 2019 Amanda Siegrist)
I love anything that has to do with romance. As long as there’s a happy ending, I’m a happy camper. I love baseball (Go Twins!) and creating awesome crafts. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, working in that field for several years before I became a stay-at-home mom. When I’m not hanging out with my wonderful family, I’m writing a sweet contemporary romance or a romantic suspense that keeps you guessing until the end. I have a few more amazing stories in the works. If you would like to connect with me or see important news, head to my website at http://www.amandasiegrist.com.
