When beautician Valentine Beaumont’s star employee, Jock de Marco, goes missing, Valentine fears the worst. Jock could turn a Plain Jane into a knockout with the mere touch of his comb. But despite his talents in the salon, this tame career might not be enough to distance himself from a dangerous past that may be coming back to haunt him.
Valentine will stop at nothing until she finds out what happened to this Argentinean Hercules, but other things are getting in her way: an elusive assailant, a cryptic email, an infuriating employee, and one hot detective who is pressuring her to give up her search for the sexy stylist.
Can this impulsive heroine uncurl the mystery and save Jock? Or will she be too late and live a lifetime filled with regret?
