Kate Gardener Mysteries #5
It was about halfway through the food, and a couple of drinks in, before Pierce started talking.
“I suppose you heard about yesterday.”
Kate nodded. “Yeah, I heard. You seem pretty calm about it.” Pierce nearly choked on the sip of beer he was taking, but his coughing dissolved into laughter that went just a little too long, and too intensely, for Kate’s comfort.
“Calm. Yeah.” Pierce took another, larger sip of beer, swallowing without difficulty. “Let’s just say… I have to buy a new boxing bag.”
Kate grimaced. “Killed it, huh?”
“Oh yeah, it’s dead.” Pierce winked at that, and Kate sighed internally, relieved as she felt the tension begin to ebb away.
“So, what’s the next step? What’s Reynolds going to do?”
Pierce finished chewing a mouthful of his burger before he replied. “Mister Reynolds is employing an investigator to check things out. More accurately, check me out, and see if he can find some way to prove that I didn’t beat the confession out of Eddowes, or plant the murder weapon.” He grabbed up a couple of rosemary salt chips, but hesitated before putting them in his mouth. “It will be over soon, one way or another.”
Kate frowned. “One way or another? What is that?”
Pierce sighed raggedly, and chewed on, even as he spoke. “That is me being realistic.”
“Realistic.” Kate studied Pierce, the frown not leaving her face until her scrutiny came to an end. “Huh… okay, so, realistically… how much of it is true?”

September 30, 2018
Summer, and the city is heating up…
When a scandalous tabloid reporter is gunned down in broad daylight, the question isn’t who did it, but who wouldn’t? The man had “dirt” on some of the biggest names in politics and business, and rumor has it he was ready to break something big… a scandal that could threaten the upcoming elections, and even the very foundations of government.
Caught up in a tide of crime and controversy, where friend and foe alike are poised upon the razor’s edge…
DS Richard Pierce finds his career and his reputation in peril when he is accused of planting evidence to frame the “Cathgate Ripper”, a vicious serial killer whose trial is poised to begin. Convinced of his innocence, Kate Gardener races desperately to gather evidence to salvage the case and exonerate Pierce.
Kate has balanced on that edge before… but will she be able to save her friends without falling from grace herself?

Kate let out a whoosh of air, and wilted a bit. This was proving to be a more complicated evening of coffee and conversation than she’d anticipated…
“Parris, who are we really trying to save here?”
Parris grimaced, and pinched the bridge of his nose, doubtless to stifle the emotions that were on the threshold of overwhelming him. “I don’t know anymore… My father is… my father… but…” He trailed off, at a loss for words.
“Okay, let me ask you this.” Kate paused a moment, gathering her words. “Do you believe that your brother will be a good Prime Minister if he’s elected?”
Parris didn’t hesitate, nodding enthusiastically. “Absolutely. Yes.”
Kate nodded slowly. To save the son, they’d have to save the father, even if he didn’t deserve it… “Can you get the note for me? And anything else related to this?”
Parris nodded again. “Yes, of course. What are you going to do?”
A ‘Mona Lisa’ smile appeared on Kate’s face. “I’ll do what I can.”

Every time she opened her sassy little mouth, I imagined my dick in it.
Losing my virginity was a big step. Losing it to a giant green ogre would be a monumental one.
Patience, little princess. Naughty girls get only what Daddy wants to give and nothing more.
No more Mr. Nice Daddy
The princess was destined to be mine. She just didn’t know it yet.
Sparks fly, skirts go up and panties come down. My stubborn princess will learn that her Ogre Daddy is determined to turn our nightmare into the ultimate happily ever after.
“Are you ready to talk, little princess?”
“Good, come here then please.” Her cheeks were tinged with a blush of color as she made her way over to me. I sat down on the floor and pulled her into my lap. “Listen, I know we have a long road of recovery ahead of us. Two years of hurt are not going to magically disappear, but consider this step one. No more self-deprecation. You are an intelligent woman, and you can find productive ways to convey your insecurities. No more name calling. Got it?”
She laid her head on my chest as I spoke, and I wrapped my arms around her. “Speaking those things gives them power so even if they live up here”—I tapped her head—“they need to stay out of here.” I moved my finger to her mouth and circled her lips.
She surprised me by snapping at my finger almost catching it in her teeth.
“Brat.” I stood her on her feet and faced her toward me. Cupping her shoulders I looked her straight in the eyes. “I mean it, Ari. If I hear any more of that nonsense, I’m going to spank your ass cherry red. No more Mr. Nice Daddy.”
“Okay, I get it. Can I go back to bed now?” She wasn’t taking my threat seriously, I could tell. That was mostly my fault, I had definitely made empty threats, but it obviously was not doing either of us any favors. The little princess was in for a rude awakening next time she poked her ogre.
“Grayson, I want you.”
I stopped dead in my tracks, not even sure that I had heard her quite right. My heart beat fast, and my blood pressure rose. My cock twitched, and I ached with need. Every feeling of arousal I had spent the last hour pushing back rushed to the surface.
I turned to look at her, and the moment my eyes met hers, I knew I had heard correctly. Her eyes were filled with vulnerability and need, and she chewed softly on her bottom lip, looking up at me, then down at the floor, and up at me once more.
God, I wanted her. And she wanted me. I knew that—had known it for a while. But there was one big obstacle. One big green obstacle.
“I’ll hurt you,” I whispered.
She drew a shaky breath and her gaze zoomed in on my bulging crotch. I swore I saw her gulp.
“I want you to,” she answered.
His cock was erect with its usual morning wood, but it was no longer green and, while still quite impressive, was now considerably… less large. We both stood staring it it in complete silence until finally Grayson spoke.
“Well, shit. I’m kinda going to miss the big green guy. We were just getting to the fun stuff.”
Grinning, I leaned against him, reaching down to wrap my hand around his now human dick. “I’m thinking we can have plenty of fun with this guy too, even if he is a little late to the party.”
“Mmm.” His lips nuzzled my neck, and his cock twitched in my grasp. My girly parts tingled as they came to life, all but begging to be introduced to this new hunk of flesh. I pressed my body against his, wrapping my arms around his neck, ready to take this celebration into the bed where it belonged.
“We could start right now,” I whispered, grabbing his hand and pulling him back toward the bed.
He moaned loudly, and pushed himself away, creating distance between us. “You have no idea how good that sounds, and I assure you it will happen, but, it seems like there are more pressing matters to attend to at the moment. Because, you know, I went to bed a huge, green ogre, just as I have every night for the past two years, and somehow, I woke up a human. With human size parts. I’m kind of dying to know how that happened, and what this silver lining you were rambling about is.”

Anastasia Lintel never wanted for more than a simple existence, arranging flowers in her father’s shop, catering to the soft-palmed elite. However, when tragedy strikes, taking with it the only family she has ever known, Anastasia must adapt to an unexpected new life.
Decreed missive in hand, Nathaniel Fitzpatrick, Duke of Avondale, descends on Anastasia’s flower shop like an invading storm, removing her from her ordinary world with little explanation and thrusting her into his extravagant life.
Anastasia quickly realizes the Duke is the least of her troubles when she meets his four scandalous brothers. Each sibling is rivaling in intensity, physical prowess, and the unrelenting quest to see her gone, but none is as dangerous as their leader, Clinton Fitzpatrick.
Anastasia’s litany of questions regarding The Duke’s guardianship over her will have to wait while she tries to figure out how to manage her new role and the tormenting Lords that come with it.
With their wealth, power and mystery, these Lords set a stage that is far from ordinary. Will Anastasia be able to survive them until she turns one-and-twenty, or gets married, whichever comes first? Or will she lose herself in their glittering world that is anything but what it seems…
The cover is basic but delivers a message and secret about what you may read. When I read the blurb I knew it would be an adventure I wanted to be in. Before you even finish with the first chapter the author has entangled you in her historical romance. The writing style was smooth and fluent so as a reader you wouldn’t be bored or confused on what was happening with the story. You can tell as you progress through the novel the author has taken great pride and did her research because it fits perfectly within the time period that the story happened. In honesty there were times where the author fed you breadcrumbs in the middle at the perfect time so you questioned what was going on but still may not have figured it out. As the story unfolds so does secrets well kept. The authors description of not just the characters but also of the people were described so if you closed your eyes you knew what, where, and who at any given time. I loved Anastasia because she was feisty and not one to kneel down when put to the test. Her force is one to be reckoned with by any man or in this case a houseful of them. As much as I just want to go into detail about everything I will not ruin it for others.
I will definitely want to read more from this author especially if all her other work pulls you in to continue reading such as this one did. I will close with this if you have not picked this gem up you need to grab it now. I promise you will not be disappointed.
