Josh January — A burned-out, beat-up rogue of a private eye. His last case had nearly killed him! Maggie Gladstone — The vibrant, sexy innkeeper who'd read too many detective novels . . . and wanted badly to believe in heroes! Shrewdly. Josh agreed to investigate the strange goings-on at Maggie's charming bed and breakfast. The case would be a cinch — no heroics necessary. Josh could concentrate on important things like rest, recovery . . . and seducing tawny-haired Maggie. He was dead wrong — about the case and about sweet Maggie. If Josh didn't start playing the hero, he'd pay a very high price.
