Deceit in the Desert: A Nico & Eve Short Story

Anne Marie Becker
Free sample

A romantic suspense short story…


Intrepid investigative journalist Eve Reynolds has a passion for justice that often puts her in danger. When she agrees to travel to Phoenix to investigate a drug gang known as the Desert Diablos, she becomes a target. Good thing she has a guardian angel.


DEA undercover agent Nico Johnson is no angel. He’s definitely human, and his weakness for Eve proves it. She’s tough and capable, but he’s watched from afar to make sure she’s safe. The woman has a reckless streak that would have her running headlong into a raging storm to save a stranger. This time, his gut is telling him she’s in more danger than she can handle.


The ruthless Desert Diablos will do anything necessary to take out a threat to their drug-running organization. Nico’s used to fighting threats like them. What he can’t fight is his growing desire for Eve. Despite his good intentions, he can’t resist her. After all, everything’s hotter in the desert.

It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s whether you make it out alive.


Abby Rhodes learned early on that her gift could do more harm than good, so she stifled her psychic abilities for years. But in an unguarded moment, she touches an object connected to the murders of eleven girls and receives a message—one that could help capture a killer. When a twelfth victim goes missing, she must choose whether to trust her gift and risk everything, or stay silent and possibly jeopardize a young girl’s life.


Tech genius and ex-SEAL Andrew “Einstein” MacKenzie doubts the sexy yoga instructor with the soft smile can help find a killer who has eluded authorities for decades, but he’ll do anything to catch a break in this case—until he learns Abby’s methods have no basis in science. He prefers verified data and reliable statistics that fit neatly into his crime-solving algorithms. This woman, both his polar opposite and his perfect match, threatens to upend his carefully controlled world in every way.


Twenty years ago, the Charmer began his deadly game, killing beautiful young women to serve his needs. Now, the agents at SSAM are breathing down his neck. Determined to stay in control, he initiates a plan to destroy the agency—unless they find him first. It’s a race against the clock as Einstein and Abby hunt the ruthless serial killer, and the winner will take all.
