From the author of Good Girl Gone Bad comes the sizzling tale of an undercover cop who shows a little skin to get in with the mob -- and the sexy mafia princess who gets in the way....

Curvaceous and feisty, Francesca Donatello is the owner of Skin, an upscale woman's magazine and her pride and joy. To boost sales, she's decided to feature a smoldering male centerfold in each issue -- even though it was once forbidden by her rigid father, a recently murdered mob boss. He always doubted her ability as a businesswoman, and now Francesca is even more determined to succeed. So when she meets sexy, charismatic model Reese Barrett, she knows he is perfect, and perfectly chiseled, for the job.

From the moment Reese sheds his clothes for the photo shoot, business becomes pleasure, and both are overcome with unadulterated desire for each other. But what Francesca doesn't realize is that Reese is a cop who's using her to infiltrate the Donatello family and find out who murdered her father. Even she is a suspect. But it soon becomes apparent that someone wants Francesca as dead as her father. As they dodge bullets and bodies Francesca and Reese shed secrets and inhibitions -- and learn that they must trust each other to survive.

Strip clubs, kidnappings, the mafia, and undercover missions—it’s all here in the first three books in national bestselling author Karin Tabke’s sizzling Hot Cops series!

Book One: Good Girl Gone Bad
Philamina Zorn is a straight-laced, by-the-book cop working in internal affairs, and this time it’s landed her an undercover job at a gentleman’s club. Jaded vice cop Ty Jamerson has been forced to work with her, but makes it apparent he’d rather see her handing out parking tickets than working his case. But as they enter the sordid world of exotic dancers, murder, and kidnapping, these two hot cops discover that if they want to survive, they’ll have to strip more than just their inhibitions.

Book Two: Skin
Feisty Francesca Donatello needs the sexiest man on the planet to launch her magazine SKIN. Undercover cop Reese Bronson needs the job to infiltrate the Donatello organized crime family. While Reese sheds his clothes and Francesca captures it on film for her magazine, someone decides that Francesca belongs with her mob-boss father—dead. On the run from San Francisco to Wyoming, they dodge bullets and learn that trusting each other is the only way to stay alive.

Book Three: Jaded
Turned out at fourteen by her mother, Ruby Leigh Gentry has a dark past that she will do anything to keep there. Burned-out, cynical detective Jase Vaughn gets a job involving a sexual predator whose killings lead him to the door of the one woman who can break the case wide open: Jade Deveraux, the sultry proprietress of Callahan’s, a blueblood gentleman’s club. But Jade (a.k.a. Ruby Leigh) knows the same secrets as the killer. Are they one and the same…or is she the next victim?

The author of Skin and Good Girl Gone Bad pens another sizzling tale of sex, scandal, and high-stakes corruption when a hard-hitting cop investigates the sultry, secretive hostess of an upscale "gentlemen's club" in the wake of a brutal murder...

It takes more than a red-hot body and stunning sex appeal to manage a club like Callahan's successfully. Jade Devereaux hides whip-sharp smarts and cold calculation behind her sleek facade. She's come a long way from the frightened teenage girl who was once prey to a brutal man. Now, in the cat-and-mouse game of sexual escapades, Jade makes sure that the men are her prey.

When a wealthy businessman is viciously murdered mere yards from Callahan's, cynical cop Jase Vaughn turns to the exclusive private club for answers. Luscious Jade Devereaux sends his masculine desires into overdrive the moment he sees her, but he has plenty of experience with both women and crime suspects, and he can tell Jade has secrets to hide -- secrets that are somehow connected to this twisted killing.

Jase is determined to strip away the pretense and expose the real Jade Devereaux, even if that means getting closer to her than the love-them-and-leave-them playboy has ever been to a woman. If she's guilty, Jase has sworn to see her behind bars. If she's innocent, then she could be the killer's next victim. But whether Jade is guilty or innocent, Jase realizes to his dismay that they are both falling victim to something neither has ever known -- the power of love.
