An Eye for an Eye
As owner of Dirty Deeds, a tech-savvy company specializing in the age-old art of revenge, Eden Smith knows first-hand that secrecy is critical. But when a dead body washes up on the shores of Lake Michigan clutching her business card, Eden’s well-constructed world begins to fall apart. Apparently, she’s not the only one with a passion for payback, and staying alive to outsmart a killer has become her most important job of all.

A Game for a Game
Hardened homicide detective Kelly Riordan is convinced Eden Smith is hiding more than she’s willing to admit. Years on the force have taught him that nothing is what it seems, and that couldn’t be truer than when it comes to investigating the alluring owner of a revenge-for-hire business. But revealing her past could put everything Eden has worked for in jeopardy. And trusting a man like Riordan goes against the very instincts that have kept her alive this long.

Dirty Deeds, A Likely Story Book 1Ahh, revenge, a dish best served by Eden Smith, owner of Dirty Deeds, a woman who knows how satisfying it can be for the gourmet pallet whose craving for secrecy is nearly as delicious as the revenge, itself. Have a grudge to assuage? Have a never-ending bank account? Eden is your ticket and she is good at what she does, maybe too good, but what drives this beautiful and brilliant woman to provide such a service? Perhaps she has her own DIRTY DEEDS buried deep in her past. Perhaps she is a one-woman crusader for justice, no matter, it comes at a price…

What happens when the tables are turned and one dead body marks Eden for more trouble than she could have imagined. Think that isn’t bad enough? Kelly Riordan, dogged and determined detective is determined to uncover Eden’s past that will either point to her as a murderer or a beautiful corpse. Eden is definitely more than she seems, much more than Kelly could have imagined and the male in him is standing at attention. Will his tactics prove to be more irritating to Eden than poison ivy or will she find that Kelly’s method of getting under her skin will go straight to her heart?

Who wrote this intriguing and passion-filled romantic suspense, you ask? Why, A.J. Nuest, princess of passion, queen of fantasy, headmistress of humor and heat. Using her mastery of the written word, you will recognize Ms. Nuest’s signature style, strong characters and keen sense of romantic heat! From start to finish, I was hooked on these characters, invested in their lives and their stories as once again, A.J. Nuest takes me on a dizzying ride where no one is perfect on their own, but together they are explosive! No magic was used in the creation of this tale, unless you count the magic of A.J. Nuest’s words! Contemporary romantic suspense that will have you gripping the edge of your seat, both from the action and the knee- weakening heat! DIRTY DEEDS read it for the great suspense, melt for the sizzling chemistry…pass the ice water, please…
