Pretending to be something they’re not, afraid to trust anyone completely, destined to tear each other apart– this is the story of unlikely love and unbearable consequences.

Sig Locke is a cop. He was raised by a cop and all his brothers are cops. He bleeds blue, believes in right and wrong, and sees in black and white, never in shades of gray.

But that was before he met Tommi.

Tommi, with her long legs and bright green eyes, she captured Sig’s interest from the moment he saw her. Even after he discovered who she was–the girlfriend of a drug dealer, the beauty behind a criminal–he still found her utterly irresistible. What Sig doesn’t know, however, is that she has a secret even a cop can’t uncover.

Tommi Lawrence hasn’t had an easy life, and it only got more complicated the day she met Sig. She learned long ago that she can’t trust anyone. Her gut tells her that Sig is no exception, her heart tells her that he is. But that was before she found out his real identity.

Can love be forged in a fire of lies? Or will the truth destroy them both?

A chance meeting on the side of the road is just the lead that Sig needs to get in on the inside of a major police investigation. Tommi just doesn't know it yet. But Sig better watch more than his identity when it comes to her. He needs to watch his heart. Pesky feelings can bring down the strongest of men. And Sig is no different.

Oh M. Leighton you have done it again. You have made yet another fabulous male lead and have me drooling at his feet. I absolutely adore Sig. Sure he is a bit rough around the edges...but that is what I love about him. Dude is falling hard for Tommi and it is fun watching him do so. As a reader you cannot help but see it happening. We all want what is best for these Locke guys. Right?

I adored this stunning read that was absolutely full of suspense and mystery. You have this sense of something bad is about to happen at every turn. And let’s not forget the romance. Oh yes, Leighton is once again at the romance reins guiding us readers right into the arms of this masterful read.

I am eagerly anticipating what is to come in part 2. We are left at a major breaking point in the book and it is anyone's guess where it could go. I. Cannot. Wait!! 5 Fiery, Must Read Stars!

I still hear the music from the club; it’s just a little
more muted.  But now, I also hear
laughing and moaning. It’s coming from upstairs.  And it sets my teeth on edge. 

I mount the steps, pausing at the top to look left and
right.  The stairs don’t dump
directly into the balcony.  There’s
a small anteroom before it, and I can see another open doorway. It leads into a
private bathroom.  I can see the
vanity mirror and sink.

The next song that comes on is sexy as hell, Don’t Tell ‘Em.  Under different circumstances, I’d love
to have this playing when I’m with Tommi. 
But not tonight. Not like this.

I ease around the rail that tops the steps and press against
the wall to get a sidelong glance into the balcony room.  My jaw drops open and hangs there,
stunned wide.


There’s a stage up here as well.  A smaller version of the one downstairs.  And Tommi is on it.  Her ass is pressed to the pole, back
arched, eyes closed. Her fingers are threaded into the hair of a brunette.  Looks like she’s licking one of Tommi’s
nipples.  Tonin is on a couch to
the left of the stage, watching the show as the blonde who I must’ve seen from
downstairs sucks his cock.  His
palm is on the back of her head, pumping it up and down, as he eyes Tommi and
the other girl on the stage.

So this is what he likes.  This is what he has her do for him.  While I hate the thought of him seeing
her, of him possibly making her do stuff like this against her will, I almost
hope this is what gets him off, that he never lays a hand on her otherwise.
Just watches other women do it. 
Maybe this is what she does to get what she needs from him, whatever
that is.  Because I know there’s
something.  Right now, Tonin is
saving her from…something.  But
who’s going to save her from him? 
Or from herself?

I can’t stop my eyes from drifting back to the stage. The
brunette is making her way down Tommi’s stomach, her hands plastered to the
round ass that I so often admire. 
Tommi’s eyes are still closed, her body swaying slightly to the sensual
tune, but not necessarily like she’s enjoying what’s happening.  She looks to me like she’s checked out,
like she’s somewhere else. 
Thinking of something else. 
I wonder again if this is what Tonin makes
her do.  Maybe it’s what she has to do to keep him from putting his
dick in her.  Hell, if that’s the
case, I don’t blame her. I’d let a hot chick lick on me all day long if it
saved me from Tonin.  Of course,
I’d let a hot chick lick on me all day anyway, but that’s not the point.

The brunette pulls Tommi’s lacy panties from one hip and I
let my eyes wander back up a flat, golden stomach to pale-white, creamy breasts
that are absolutely perfect in every way. They’re plump and high and topped
with dusky pink nipples that are just the right size.  At the moment, they’re hard as damn rocks, too. 

My cock stirs in my jeans and I think to myself that I
should go back downstairs.  Tonin
would be mad as hell if he found me up here creeping on his party, but I can’t
tear my eyes away from Tommi. 
She’s the sexiest, most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.  Her skin is flawless, her body
exquisite.  Every long, tall inch
of it. 

I pull my gaze away from her tits to find her face.  Her eyes are open now. And focused on

All Things Pretty

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

About Michelle:  I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined.  I'm convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace.  I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.

Michelle loves to hear from readers! You can find her (and she will chat your ear off) here:
