SHE GOT THE WRONG MAN…or did she?
Kit Colfax is a sassy insurance investigator who is out to catch herself a suave Southern jewel thief...any way she can. Her career depends on it. But she’s in for the surprise of her life when her sting operation instead mistakenly snares handsome chief of police Simon “Beau” Beaulieux.
Lord have mercy, the man's deep, sexy voice evokes fantasies of smooth satin sheets on hot afternoons, dripping with the sweet scent of honeysuckle and the taste of icy mint juleps. Kit does her best to resist the tempting Louisiana aristocrat. But a series of disasters—certainly not his heated kisses!—have her chasing Beau from Las Vegas to San Diego to the bayous of his stately antebellum plantation. There, wrapped in the embrace of sultry Southern nights, she finds herself hopelessly caught in the sensual web of his passion. But will the demands of their jobs and the conflicting bonds of old family loyalties spell disaster for the future of their blossoming love?
