Crime of Fashion
By Karen Cote’
High-fashion women of Orange County are being murdered and Charli Wells seems to be the common denominator linking them together. As the attorney who represented them in a hostile divorce against very wealthy, powerful, and angry men, now Charli’s clients, once known as the ex-housewives of Orange County are making bigger headlines…in the obituaries. And when the killer gets too close to Charli, she is granted protection by a cop who is gorgeous, sexy, and the last person on earth she should trust with her life.
California’s Newport Beach Detective, Jarrett Masters turned his back on the career his wealthy family had wanted for him to pursue his one and only desire. To serve and protect. A job he loved…until Charli Wells is placed in his care. Independent, beautiful, and defiant, his attraction to her is irrational, making him more of a lunatic than the serial killer he’s trying to catch. Who else in their right mind would be drawn to a woman who, not only tried to ruin his reputation and career, she’d represented his ex-wife in their divorce.

Her brother was dead. He’d practically raised her and stood by her during a miscarriage that left her barren. He’d been the sole person she’d had left in this world. How had Dr. Lily Delaney with a PhD in Psychology missed the psychotic signs of Anthony Capriccio, the Kansas City District Attorney and her ex-fiancé? Now at twenty-nine she was on the run to hide from the impending threats to her own life. But on the road to a safe secluded lake community, Lily crashes into the path of a new dangerous element, literally. One with deep blue eyes who totes a badge and carries a gun. And would their budding relationship be threatened when Lily finds out her own doctor had lied and discovers she really can have children? How would the sheriff take knowing she’d gotten pregnant when she’d already heartily assured him she wasn’t?
After his experience as a detective in Kansas City, Missouri, Jet Walker enjoyed his life as sheriff of the quiet lake community, Windom Hills. However, when Lily Delaney literally crashes into his car and life, his world disrupts into chaos. Couldn’t the woman do anything normal? Between fighting to protect her and fighting against his growing attraction for her, the previous peace Jet had found was now falling apart. And how could he possibly trust another woman after the trick his ex-wife played in trying to pass off another man’s child as his?
