Cleo Morgan's dream of being a respectable member of the mainstream press is waylaid when her mother, a retired Las Vegas showgirl, gets into a financial jam. Instead of following up her Pulitzer-nominated story with more hard-hitting news, she’ll be writing a different kind of exposé. Soon it will be stories about Bigfoot sightings and alien abductions and having dinner with Elvis. And the day her byline appears in the tabloid, The Inside Word, her hopes of a bright and shiny career will be over.
Not everything at the tabloid is repulsive however. Cleo certainly never expected anyone on the dark side would have her thinking wicked thoughts. But Alec Ramirez is more than a pretty face (or even an enticing hardbody) as he proves when Cleo’s mother is arrested for the murder of a Las Vegas casino owner.
Together, they work to find out what really happened, who had the most to gain and, most importantly, to clear Cleo’s mother of the charges. That should be enough to keep anyone busy, but life gets even more complicated when Cleo’s very rich ex-boyfriend appears and tempts her with the one thing she might just sell her soul for. If she can bring in the story, swiping it from under the feet of Alec and her new employer, her old life will be hers again.
All it will cost is a little betrayal.
