Too hot to handle… Too sweet to give up.

Tamsyn Holt, seductress and chameleon. Her sensual beauty has ensnared many a mark into her honey trap. With her client base, she’s quite an asset to the family PI agency’s bottom line. But can any man hope to tame her? Only Jason St. John, a man as elusive and seductive as she, can lay claim to her body. But will she trust any man with her heart? No way!

Jason St. John is a man with secrets. His first FBI undercover assignment will show the Bureau and his father Jason's worth as an agent. But becoming attracted–okay, more than attracted–to a sexy PI, isn’t the way to go about it. And becoming the person of interest in a murder investigation not only threatens his operation but also his career.

Nashville... A pregnant nurse goes missing... A killer on the loose.

When a pregnant friend and fellow case manager goes missing, Allison Lackey turns to her family's P.I. agency for help. Just her luck, her brother assigns his old pal and new employee, Nick Vitelli, to the case. Wouldn't you know he's the same fellow she had the hots for when she was a skinny teenager. When the old feelings emerge, being around him is pure torture. Besides, in Allison's opinion, his investigation is headed in the wrong direction.

Former Atlanta PD detective Nick Vitelli is newly divorced and halfway resents being palmed off on a "family" case. Initially, he doesn't believe in the case's urgency or that Allison knows what she's talking about. He figures she may know a lot about nursing, but trying to tell him how to run an investigation is out of line.

When the missing woman's car is found and the evidence points to homicide, Nick and Allison put aside their differences and work together. Allison's all grown up, and Nick finds working so closely with his boss's sister more and more difficult. Getting mixed up with Allie could mean a quick trip to the unemployment line. Losing this job is too great a risk because he has a young son to support.

Another nurse goes missing, and Allison creates an enemy or two when she doggedly pursues a physician as the culprit. Not only is she risking her job, but she's also painting a target on her back as victim number three.
