Our Life of Love
When soap opera star, Cherylyn Dwyer is murdered in her dressing room, the police discover that her young co-star, seven-year-old Kassidy Scanlin, may have been spotted by the killer.
Enter hard-boiled homicide detective Jace Brooks who is instantly attracted to Kassidy’s mother, Maureen, despite the fact that he classifies her as a bohemian pain-in-the-ass who never shuts up. The more Jace tries to deny his longing, the more acute it becomes.
Placing mother and child under police protection seems the only answer and they are moved to a safe house.
Fearing for her child’s life, yet determined not to give in to all police demands, Maureen does battle on more than one occasion with Jace, which only serves to heighten his desire for the petite spitfire. At the same time, Maureen is unable to resist the ruggedly handsome detective and the sparks begin to fly.
As the case unfolds, more secrets come to light and in the end Jace puts his life on the line to save the woman and child he has come to love.
