A topless dancer and a cynical cop doesn’t equal a lifetime love...or does it?

There’s more to Jude Nelson than just a sequined thong. She’s got big dreams to become an artist. There’s one tiny wrinkle in her plan—she’ll never forget the bloody image of her friend’s battered body in the dumpster.     

 Who can a nude dancer turn to for help? Certainly not a hardened undercover cop...

Detective Drew Alwyn is on the case to find out who murdered his good friend and fellow officer. But the moment he sees Jude, he can’t look away. He has to decide which is more important—his dedication to his job or the girl who holds his bruised and battered heart.

Will these two opposites come together to solve the case or will their desire consume them?

Reader Advisory: This story contains scenes of bondage, mentions of drug use by secondary characters, silk, sequins and art supplies used in foreplay, voyeurism and a little spanking for good measure.

 

 

Excerpt

“Nine-one-one. Please state your emergency.”

Jude hugged her knees and rocked on the floor of her art studio space. Instead of the art supplies, all she saw was the vision behind the club.  Her hands trembled as she clutched the cell phone. The blood, the smell...her stomach lurched and bile filled her mouth.

“Excuse me. Hello?”

“I’d like to report a murder.” Jude blinked and drew a long breath into her lungs. She needed to calm down or she’d never make it through the call. Tears burned behind her eyes. She shouldn’t have been in hiding. She needed to be right there with her friend.

“Ok, hon, can you give me the location?”

“Thirteen hundred Broadway. Behind the Silver Steel.”

“Silver Steel Gentlemen’s Club?”

“Yes.” She closed her eyes and once again the visions gripped her. She’d only been asked to dump Astra’s things. Astra ran off to Vegas with Slade. She’s not coming back. Just pitch her trash.  She bit back the sour taste of vomit in her mouth. Tiny never asked her to dump trash. That was Corey’s job. 

“Ma’am?”

“I’m sorry.” Jude cleared her throat. The best thing to do was to just explain what she’d seen. “I took out the garbage behind the club and when I opened the compactor, there was a hand.”

“A hand?”

Jude nodded. How in the world did the dispatcher manage to stay so calm? “Yes. My friend Astra Devlin and her boyfriend Slade McMann were supposed to have gone to Vegas, but they didn’t.”

“And how do you know, Ma’am?”

“Because it was her hand in the compactor.” Jude rocked back and forth. The vision of the hand remained crisp in her mind—bloody and reaching towards the opening to the compactor. The smell of rot and decay held fast as well. Her stomach lurched again.

“We’ve got a unit on the way. Can you give me your name?”

Her name? Oh shit. Jude trembled. If she gave her name, her boss would know who alerted the cops. If she felt confident telling them her name, she’d never have run straight to the safety of her studio. 

She stared at her cell phone, unsure what to do.

“Ma’am?”

Jude snapped the phone shut and gave it a fling across the cramped room. If the cops wanted her bad enough, they’d no doubt find her. She’d seen enough crime dramas to know the police had lots more tricks to finding people.

Just as long as her boss didn’t find out. If he remained in the dark, she’d be safe.

If.
