One day she turns around and her handsome, arrogant fictional character is standing in the middle of her living room.

While juggling lies explaining her strange “houseguest,” Maggie also finds herself the prime suspect in the murder of her publisher and former lover. St. Just, hero that he is, naturally insists he will solve the crime, but she has her doubts. So far, her perfect hero has yet to remember to put the cap back on the toothpaste…
