Summary

Leah Samuels, owner of the Black Orchid Investigations firm, has a new client—her old nemesis, Stephanie Grandini, mob boss and notorious adulterer whose longtime paramours included Leah’s late wife, Quinn. Grandini has had millions stolen from her, and she wants the name of the embezzler and the location of her money. Though BOI has the preeminent resources and reputation to take on such a task, Leah can’t help thinking that Grandini has more personal motives in mind.
 
What starts as a simple corporate espionage case quickly hits close to home when Leah discovers that her finacée, the wealthy and important Jardain Bensington, also has ties to the infamous mobster. The investigation takes the BOI team in directions they didn’t expect when they first accepted the case, and Leah finds herself in a web of intrigue and deceit that blurs the lines between professional and personal, and leaves her in a roiling state of déjà vu. Once the culprit is found, Leah isn’t sure they should—or can—turn the perpetrator over to the ruthless Grandini. Worse, she isn’t sure that she can trust the one woman she loves more than anything in the world.

    Keeping the Peace: Walking into the interrogation room, a council enforcer realizes Fate has decided to throw him a curveball. Enforcer Delanrue Drudeson is a komodo dragon shifter who's known as the intense brother, the unapproachable one, but he has his reasons. Keeping his brothers safe from a sadistic alpha while growing up meant he'd had to be a careful, manipulative adult…from a very early age. Specializing in interrogation for the last several decades, Delanrue is happy with his life. Then he walks into a secure room where he's supposed to question the occupant by any means necessary—Midget Suvergy, a guinea pig shifter. Except, one sniff tells Delanrue that Midget is his mate—the other half of his soul. Knowing the mate-pull could easily compromise his judgment, he immediately assigns the interrogation duties to another. That doesn't stop him from walking back into that room to be with him. Midget claims just to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and to Delanrue's relief, his words scent true. Then word comes down that Midget is wanted for the murder of a member of his guinea pig muddle. Delanrue isn't stupid. It's easy to see that Midget is no killer, no matter what anyone says. Can Delanrue's connections keep Midget safe long enough to clear him from the conspiracy dogging his steps?
