Featuring: The Badge and The Beauty,

a Romantic Suspense short by Denise Wells

Release Date: 6/28/23

We may be running for our lives, but the real danger is in the way her body feels pressed against mine.

I’m a damn good detective, but I’ve seen enough of this world to know that justice isn’t always served. So, when a pageant queen gets dethroned after being slapped with bogus charges, I smell trouble.

And trouble means someone’s out for blood.

The deeper I dig, the more I realize this beauty’s got herself tangled up with some bad dudes. They’re on our tail, and it’s up to me to be the knight in shining armor that gets her out alive.

Problem is, I’m finding myself drawn to her like she’s magnetic—as in the steel that can’t resist her pull. I’m falling hard, even knowing it’s a bad idea. This ain’t my first rodeo. I’ve seen how it ends and it’s not pretty.

Which is why I’m hoping maybe, just maybe, this time will be different.
