Destination to Be Determined
Life has never been easy for Emmy London. Raised in foster homes, she learned to never get too comfortable, to never let anyone in. When her classmate, Chloe Oliver, disappeared at the tender age of five, so did she. From that moment on, life was never the same. She kept a secret and kept her distance from everyone. With the twentieth anniversary of Chloe’s disappearance looming, Mr. Oliver sought Emmy’s assistance, asking her to revisit the past in order to give him the closure he so desperately needed. As a private investigator, she was accustomed to facing unpleasant situations and sifting through others’ lives. Unfortunately, this time to do that, she has to face her own. Soon, she herself is being followed. A handsome stranger insinuates himself in her life. Everything she believed and thought she knew is called into question beginning with…can she turn her curse into a gift? Her mission is clear, her destination is to be determined.
When Emmy finally answers a series of missed calls, the first words Sean speaks are, “Peaches is missing!” Rushing back to Shiloh Cove, her new mission is a favor for a friend that lands her in a strip club, working undercover. Blaze really appreciates her new work uniform…and he’s not the only one. Like so many others on the force, Detective Morrow moonlights in a security position after hours at Leather and Lace. He’s seen many girls come and go through the years without giving it another thought, until Emmy enters his life once more, this time wearing makeup and not much else. Then, he can’t stop thinking about her. In the midst of an alpha pissing contest between two men who make her quiver, Emmy finds herself embroiled in a dark and dangerous underground. Everything she believed to be true is put to the test. It has been said rules are meant to be broken, that life is all fun and games. Yet in her case, never has so much been at stake when Emmy finds her destination derailed.
Blaze appeared, and took the phone out of her hand, ending the call. Her face was searing hot. How long had he been at the door?
Taking her hand and opening her palm, he traced the line that she knew went to her heart, and placed a small piece of paper over it along with her phone. “Give me a chance, Sunshine,” he said as his lips brushed against hers. Cupping his palms around her face, he captured her mouth, claiming her. Her knees grew weak, and she slumped against the bricks behind her. He moved one hand around her neck and knotted his fingers in her hair; the other hand traveled down her side and circled her waist. Pushing his hips into hers, he pinned her into place. Allowing him in, their tongues danced and swirled in perfect rhythm. When he pulled back, she was panting, yearning for more. Turning on his heel, he walked away.
She leaned against the building a little longer until her legs were no longer wobbly. Gently, she touched her swollen lips, remembering the kiss. They’d never feel the same again to her.
