Book 1 in the Crime Tells series. Solving a case about pilfered pooches is pretty tame work for a vice cop, but when the victim is your grandmother, well… the police take care of their own. Trouble is, one look at Lyric Montgomery, the PI his grandmother has hired to recover her stolen dachshunds, and Kieran Burke knows he's got a problem. He's never been turned on so fast—or so attracted to a hellion with a reputation for breaking the law.Lyric Montgomery can't believe she's falling for a cop. She's always had a little problem staying inside the lines, and Kieran is definitely a complication she doesn't need. But his dominant, I'm-in-control attitude tempts her like fire tempts a pyromaniac.Kieran may lay down the rules, but he quickly finds out that for Lyric, breaking them is half the fun, especially when it drives him crazy and evokes his special brand of "punishment".As the trail heats up, it isn't the only thing burning hot enough to melt steel. Bad boy Kieran finds the only way to keep his sexy little pet detective safe may be tying her to his bed—permanently.
