A female cop apprehends a jewel thief…
“We caught you trespassing,” she snapped. “What were you doing there? What did you take?” Her gaze slid down his body toward his crotch.
Jonno laughed, not even trying to control his unruly body. The steal of color across her cheeks charmed him. A blusher. He wondered how big an area the flush covered. “I’m not hiding any jewels there, aside from the obvious, although you’re welcome to investigate.” A sly grin slid across his lips. He hadn’t had so much fun with a woman in ages.
“You’re trying to embarrass me.”
“Is it working?”
“Yes,” she hissed. “Are you satisfied? You’re making me behave in an unprofessional manner.”
“I’m not making you do anything, sweet cheeks.”
Here is the blurb:
Middlemarch Mates, Book 8
Laura Adams is a cop with ambition, and a job in Middlemarch isn’t what she wants for her future. Hooking up with the wrong man is responsible for the wrong turning, and she refuses to repeat the mistake, especially with a sexy thief.
Leopard shifter Jonno Campbell takes one look at Laura and desires her as his mate. He’s enthralled with the fiery cop, and when she arrests him, he’s ready for a strip search. Convincing Laura he’s innocent and that they should work together to capture the thieves stealing from Middlemarch residents isn’t easy. A kiss laced with his easy charm does the trick and sparks fly. Passion escalates into primitive hunger. A night of hot loving convinces Jonno. He wants forever with the gorgeous Laura, but her ambition, his feline heritage and a gang of thieves stand in the way of his progress. Then there’s the ex-boyfriend who wants Laura back. This time charisma and erotic promises mightn’t be enough to win the lady.
