A journalist stumbles onto the story of a lifetime ... and finds herself falling in danger.
When naive young reporter Jessica Brady is kidnapped and held for ransom by the head of an illegal dog-fighting organization, undercover police officer Ian Cole realizes he's got his hands full. He's on the verge of busting the ring when he's assigned to babysit her, which isn't an easy feat. She's neurotic, feisty, and also happens to be scared to death of dogs. Now he has to figure out a way to get them both out alive.
Jessica has no idea the thug she's becoming attracted to is actually a cop, but it's clear he's not like the rest of the men in the organization. Particularly Albert Mancini, the disturbed only son of the ring boss, who has an appetite for alcohol and women-especially Jessica.
When Ian's cover is blown, he's forced to bust the ring early. Weeks later, Jessica can't stop thinking about the experience that has changed her forever. She wonders about the tall, sexy detective who saved her life-and the mobster's prizewinning pit bull, Bruta.
An idea for a story is born. What if these dogs were given a second chance at life?
As Jessica digs deeper into their troubled world, she ends up falling for the police officer who rescued them. And discovers layers of her heart she never knew existed.
But when Albert escapes from jail, her happiness turns to terror. He hasn't forgotten about the detective who put him behind bars ... or the beautiful young woman whose every move has become his obsession.
Miss Gertrude Cadwalader hoped her position as the paid companion to the wealthy Mrs. Davenport would be easy, but as she becomes acquainted with her employer, she realizes that she has a strange tendency to be a bit light-fingered with other people's trinkets. Gertrude is relieved when Mrs. Davenport decides to have a quiet summer away from the social scene—but then the woman changes her mind in order to help a young socialite launch into society.
When Gertrude is caught in the act of trying to return one of the trinkets Mrs. Davenport had taken, Mrs. Sinclair, the mother of shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair, jumps to an unfortunate conclusion. Harrison is determined to mend fences with Miss Cadwalader, but he's unprepared for the escapades a friendship with her will entail...
Miss Permilia Griswold may have been given the opportunity of a debut into New York high society, but no one warned her she wasn't guaranteed to "take." After spending the last six years banished to the wallflower section of the ballroom, she's finally putting her status on the fringes of society to good use by penning anonymous society gossip columns under the pseudonym "Miss Quill."
The estimable Mr. Asher Rutherford has managed to maintain his status as a reputable gentleman of society despite opening his own department store. When Permilia overhears a threat against him, she's determined to find and warn the man, taking matters into her own hands and never realizing she'll end up at risk as well.
As Asher and Permilia are forced to work together, they spend time away from the spotlight of society and discover that there may be more going on behind the scenes than they could have ever anticipated...
After her father lost the family's fortune, Wilhelmina was cast out of the fashionable set and banished to the wallflower section. Taking a position as a social secretary to help support her family, she's mostly come to terms with her new status. But when her old friend Edgar returns to New York society for the first time since she rejected his marriage proposal, she's newly ashamed at how far she's fallen — and how hastily she dismissed him years ago.
Her strategy is to avoid a face-to-face encounter at all costs, but he seems to have other plans. Will Edgar take advantage of their now reversed positions and make her regret her refusal, or is there still hope for a friendship between them—or something more?
