“Detective, what a wonderful surprise to see you again, and so early in the morning. To what do we owe this pleasure?” Maurice’s oily voice slipped around Leo, greeting him as he stepped into the Wiltshire Tower’s pristine lobby.
“You know damn well, why I’m here, Mr. Franklin.” Leo’s growl reverberated off the muted walls.
Maurice held up a finger. “Language, Detective. We don’t like to disturb our residents with trivial problems.”
“Such as death and mutilation.”
Maurice’s eyes flashed dark. “Yes, those two subjects would be off-limits.”
“I’ll need those tapes, Mr. Franklin.” Leo called over his shoulder as he walked past the concierge desk toward the elevator. This was becoming a familiar dance.
“Just as soon as you provide me with the warrant, Detective, I’ll give you everything you need,” said Maurice, taunting.
Sawyer twisted, his arm snapped out, and his hand closed around Maurice’s tie, yanking him over the desk. “We are here to solve a murder,” Sawyer hissed, his voice dropping to a whisper. “This is the third person to have been killed in your establishment this year, perhaps you ought to be tending your sheep a bit more closely instead of antagonizing the people who keep returning to clean up your mess.”
“Release him.” The soft command caused Sawyer to glance up over at Leo. Leo nodded, his hard gaze locked on Sawyer. Relaxing his hand, Sawyer let Maurice scramble back across the desk.
Straightening his tie and jacket, Maurice slicked his hair into place. With a sniff, he shot a scowl at Sawyer. “You should keep your dog on a leash, Detective.”
“He’s a big boy, Mr. Franklin,” replied Leo, his voice cold. “I can’t always control him.”
“I’d hate for some type of harm to befall such a beloved pet.”
“Is that a threat?” Leaning forward, Sawyer cracked his knuckles. Maurice flinched, but recovered quickly, his mask of indifference sliding into place.
“Please let me know if I can do anything to assist the police department with this delicate matter.”
Leo leaned across the desk, his finger in Maurice’s face. “Stay out of my crime scene, Mr. Franklin. I will have a police officer on duty until my investigation is complete and if I find that you tampered with evidence, I will have you arrested.”
“That all hinges upon the word if, doesn’t it?”

Planning her wedding takes a dangerous turn, when a woman realizes a member of her engagement party would rather kill her than walk down the aisle.
So far, Miss Samantha Hastings' engagement to Benjamin, Lord Westwood, has been tumultuous at best. Kidnapped by the man who murdered her father, nearly beaten to death, and severely poisoned, Samantha barely manages to escape alive.
When the killer reveals his revenge plot had assistance, the Hastings and Westwood families must band together to defend themselves against a new threat, and Samantha concocts a risky plan to draw the accomplice out of hiding. However, this scheme may cost her more than she is willing to sacrifice. There is a traitor in their midst--one who has already committed murder and is willing to do so again.
The masked ball approaches and, by the evening's end, at least one more person will die. Will Samantha survive until her wedding day... or will her imperfect engagement become a grizzly prelude to murder?
The second book into this intriguing series drags you deeper into the mystery, surrounding the reader in a dizzying array of passion, intrigue, and the richness of the Victorian era. In the vein of Deanna Raybourn and Amanda Quick, this darker installment of the Wiltshire Chronicles will reveal the violent nature of man.

He slipped across the floor. A shadow hiding in the soft folds of the room’s heavy curtains, which lined the walls and rose to the ceiling like a black forest of velvet. His stocking feet made no sound as he glided over the plush, deep red carpet. The color stretched halfway across the room and melted into the silvery hue of the company’s elegant logo. Virtually Yours, a notoriously exclusive dating club, which boasted all the pleasures and passion of an affair without the consequences.
He paused next to a black leather chair, halfway reclined in the center of the room. His thumb caressed the embroidered silver and pink emblem stitched into the headrest. Black nylon restraints, poised in stiff half-circles, waited impatiently for the next patron. The unusual precaution, a necessity after an unnamed–and well compensated–customer fractured their cheekbone during a particularly violent sexual encounter, prevented the participant from falling to the ground during ecstasy. He smirked. The very same automated safety restraint system also prevented the person from escaping.
His fingers trailed lightly down one of the leather arms, stroking the supple material. Memories flooded his mind; her body writhing beneath him, blood trailing from the corner of her lips and dripping seductively down her soft skin–a crimson river of death–and the screaming… Desire coursed through his veins.
Caressing the arm, his fingertips brushed over tiny gouge marks that were dug into the underside of the arm; little half-moon shapes of anguish. Savannah. How she shrieked with pleasure… and with pain. His only regret was killing her too quickly. This time would be different. This time he would draw out his ecstasy.

With her cousin on honeymoon and her aunt's matchmaking propensities now solely focused on her, Annabelle escapes to the cliffs of Firefly Island for solace. When her scarf is ripped from her neck by a gust of wind, Annabelle descends the dangerous cliff in search of the wayward cloth.
