BOOK BLURB / SYNOPSIS

Love can be such a “coulda, woulda, shoulda” song sometimes...

Lucia Mpobo-Riddell could have been a dancer like the rest of women of her family but instead she

chose music. Marcus Grant could have been a doctor like the rest of his family but instead he chose

music. She also could have not fallen for Marcus on her birthday but she did. And Marcus, he could have

told Lucia the truth about his real reason for being in Toronto that night, but he didn’t. Now they have

to deal with big reveals and consequences: Marcus almost stealing her job and being force to work on

an album together. Marcus, because he couldn’t swallow his pride, leaves Toronto and goes home to

London. Lucia, because she just couldn’t give up on her first amazing opportunity to produce a whole

album. And to complicate the situation further, the band they’re working for is not the easiest one.

Mary Gillis, Marcus’ on and off flame, still has a hold on him. Greg McMullen, Lucia’s close friend and

former dance partner is back in town and has been in love with her for years. Then there’s Marcus and

Lucia, in the middle of their own a professional and personal tug-of- war with each over and the rest of

the world. But maybe things could still work out... All things considered, this could have been one heck

of a love song!

BOOK BLURB / SYNOPSIS


Marcus, Greg and Lucia are back in the second part of their journey to 

their perfect love song... will they finally find it?

This would have been their perfect love song...

It has been two years since Lucia Mpobo-Riddell has made her choice between the two men in her life.

She and her beloved would have been perfectly happy if it wasn’t for... the constant distractions from

her past, her sister Noor’s complicated life, her own doubts and fears. Maybe there wasn’t such a thing

as perfection and this was a lesson that Lucia was going to learn the hard way. Greg McMullen and

Marcus Grant’s lives had been affected by Lucia’s choice that day in Glasgow two years ago. Since then

one had been fighting to keep her when the other had been relentlessly trying to get her back. It soon

became apparent to them that she wasn’t the Lucia they met and fell in love with anymore. Her life and

priorities had completely shifted. To even consider keeping her or just getting her back, they would have

to accept it or they would have to let her go. But would they ever be able to do either?

BOOK BLURB / SYNOPSIS


18+ adult content

This was supposed to be an easy case...

Sémya Slotin had spent the last three years living in London with her best friend Polliannah Koch staying

away from solving cases. After Hawaii, she was taking a break from puzzles, cases and mysteries that

could potentially get her killed. Instead, she had been doing her second and third favorite things,

drinking and selling expensive vintage wines and having earth-shattering sex with the mysterious, sexy,

beautiful but ever so secretive Josh Heinz. Life in London was good....until her funds ran out. Too much

wine drinking, not enough wine selling!

When fashion designer and adoptive mother, Annika Slotin, summoned her back to Paris to hire her for

what Sémya considered being the easiest case of her amateur sleuth career, all she could think of and

see was money signs and a well-deserved Cuban holiday once it was solved.

What Sémya didn't see was her stumbling on the fresh corpse of supermodel Johanna Cartier. She didn't

think that male model turned fashion designer Julian Marais-Caldwin, who also happened to be Sémya's

ex, would be suspected of brutally murdering her. Johanna was his girlfriend, his muse and he loved her.

Sémya didn't see the dead bodies piling up or the conspiracy theories.

Sémya was a little rusty. But then again, it was supposed to be an easy case and she was going to solve

it. One vintage wine at a time... Sémya Slotin was officially back in business!

The pursuit of peace is not always pacific.

Vincent Mallory Edgerton had always been an efficient FREGG operative. It was his family legacy and

his pride. He had always loved his job, even when he had to leave everything behind for his safety and

become Josh Heinz.

Every love story has a beginning.

Sémya Slotin had been coasting through life solving one mystery after another. While in Hawaii, her

young protégée disappeared. When Sémya met Josh Heinz, her mind kept telling her to stay away from

the handsome stranger with the hypnotic light brown eyes but she found herself inexplicably drawn to

him. He awakened something in her and she was unable to resist him. It never happened to her before.

Who was that man?

In Hawaii, Vincent had to work covertly with the sexy bold sleuth. Sémya’s beauty and intellect

completely enthralled him, but his passion and growing love for her also changed him. There was

nothing he wouldn’t do to finally win her trust and keep her safe, causing him to unleash events that

would shape the rest of their lives. From the moment their gazes locked, Sémya and Vincent sealed their

fate.

Note: This book is part of the series and is not a 

standalone. You might be able

to enjoy without reading Bird of Prey and The Plot Thickens first BUT I really advise to read 

Polliannah Got Married! first.
