One night: kate & walker, book 1

Kate Sikes has it all: she’s smart and sexy, she has a great career, and she really does believe in happy endings—only she always picks the wrong guys. Nonetheless, she’s determined to meet the man of her dreams, and she believes she’s finally found the one when she turns to online dating. However, her high hopes are once again dashed when Mr. Right turns out to be Mr. Wrong, with some seriously heavy baggage that has Kate running for her life.

When Detective Walker Pruett comes to Kate’s rescue not once but twice, he realizes the only way to keep her safe from a crazy stalker is to keep her close. But his life is far from easy. He’s a lone wolf, and the last thing he’s looking for is attachment. After One Night with Kate, though, Walker can’t fight the chemistry sizzling between them. Not only does he find her irresistible, he feels compelled to protect her. And Kate soon discovers just how far Walker will go to do so.

Sample text:

He was considering having a second Guinness. He wasn’t in the mood for talking tonight, and he said a quick goodnight to Febriski, the desk sergeant, as he leaned against the light cedar block of the bar.

“Another, Walker?”

He liked Jean, the short blonde who was part owner of this trendy club. The food was good, the drinks were cold, and it was close to the precinct. “Yeah, sure, why not?”

She pulled the bottle from the fridge, cracked the cap, and set it on the counter. She went to slide him a clean glass, but he waved her off.

“Business looks good,” he said, taking in the crowd, all suits. This location attracted a certain clientele.

She gave him a sly smile. “Business has been phenomenal. Packed every night. Reservations are currently a three-week waitlist, and we had the local paper here doing a write up in the food section. All that great publicity helps.” She tapped the counter and gestured to one of the wait staff, who took over behind the bar.

“Your brother’s the chef, right?” Walker said. He still couldn’t believe the brother-sister team had paired up and opened this successful restaurant. 525 was the talk of the town.

“Vince is the genius behind all those dishes on the menu. He always could cook back when we were kids. Took over from Mom, who couldn’t cook if her life depended on it. I think then it was more about survival.”

He swallowed the dark brew. “How old is he again?”


“You’re twins, right?” he asked. Jean was a pistol, a self-starter, and he wanted to get to know her better. If she was anything in bed like she was running this establishment, hell, she’d be a firecracker.
