A Taste For Killing

Mystery and Romance blend together when competing detectives Carolyn Woods and Jack Heart are both hired to solve a murder, only to realize they are working the same case. To complicate things, Carolyn and Jack have an on again, off again relationship. Then there is Evan Jones, a handsome architect— but he's also a suspect.

Can Carolyn solve the case as more and more murders pile up? Will her relationship with Jack hinder their investigations? And what about Evan Jones? He seems like the perfect man, but could he actually be the murderer?

One thing is for sure: someone close to Carolyn and Jack has a taste for killing.

A Taste For Danger

Jack Heart drinks to excess daily. His apartment is in shambles, he's isolated himself from all his friends, and he stumbles to the couch every night to sleep off an alcoholic stupor. All that changes when he receives a phone call with a job offer from a man he barely knew. Asked to go undercover in an elite business, Jack is thrown into the deep end and hasn't a clue what he's in for— or looking for— until he starts asking questions.

Suddenly, Jack must track down an embezzler inside a swanky corporation riff with politics, game-playing, and treachery. The deeper Jack goes, the more dirt he finds. Can this out-of-place detective survive and still crack the case? Not to mention some of women he works with have plans for him—plans that are way more than he bargained for.

One thing is certain: Jack's taste for danger will take him to the edge of disaster.

Teaser: Excerpt

As he gathered his jacket up to go, another visitor stopped by. At the door stood Cheryl Wong. "Hola. ¿Habla usted español u otros idiomas?" Cheryl was a petite woman with pale skin and dark hair that hung loosely around her shoulders. Attractive, now that he saw her up close.

Jack stared at her, perplexed.

She came in and closed the door. Then she took a seat at his desk. She seemed comfortable, like she had done this before. "Sorry," she said now in English. That's just my way with new people. I like to find out if there are any other bilinguals here and Spanish is the most common."

"Ah," said Jack. "Well, I speak a little football and baseball, but that's about it."

Cheryl laughed. She was prettier when she smiled. But then most women were.

"You are on your way out?" she asked. "I was wondering if you could do me a favor? My car is in the shop and I took the subway here this morning, but I don't want to take it back after dark. Would you be able to give me a lift home?"

Jack was nothing if not gallant. "Sure, I could do that."

Then she threw a twist in. "You know, there's a bar on the way. We could stop and have a drink."

Jack studied her. What was she up to? He'd have to go through with it to figure her out.

"If you're up to it," she added.

"Okay, sure. But I can't stay too late."

"You have a wife or partner?"

Blunt, this one. "No, I just have some work I have to get to."

"Your first day, and they're already piling it on? That hardly seems fair." She pouted her lips in sympathy.

What was that song? Maneater? He had a feeling it was an apt description of Cheryl Wong.
