Sam Beaumont is a lucky guy. As a partner in a successful private investigations agency he can order his life just the way he wants. Especially now that they’ve hired a receptionist that has the office running smoothly. He’s grateful to Lydia, the quiet, efficient woman, with her violet eyes and mysterious past. She intrigues him. And there’s nothing Sam likes better than solving a puzzle. Lydia could be the most pleasurable puzzle he’s tangled with yet.
Lydia Perkins never guessed that her temporary assignment as receptionist for McCoy Beaumont Investigations would become permanent. The excitement she’s feeling is not only due to having stable employment but also her proximity to Sam Beaumont.
Or it could be panic that he’ll discover her sketchy past.
Trouble with a difficult case has Sam asking Lydia for assistance—a clever way to find out more about the woman. However, when she begins receiving harassing phone calls, he wonders if he’s put her in danger. Or if it somehow has to do with her past. Either way, he’s determined to protect her from any attack.
But nothing can protect their hearts as their attraction intensifies. And each must learn to trust the other not only with their past, but with their future.
