To the reader

The men I write about are Alpha males in every sense of the word. They are the men society warns us about. They are dominant males with controlling tendencies. They are the men you know you should stay away from but yet
you are drawn like a moth to a flame.

If you are looking for a sweet romance, you won't find it here. What you will find is dark passion.  Many times my heroes carry what would be considered an obsession for the women they love. Each and every character I write about has demanded their voice be heard. I have been true to that calling and I have stayed true to their personalities, which at times the reader may not always agree with. They are dark, they are gritty, and many times their love is dysfunctional but, nonetheless, it is real.

Chapter One

Agent Turner didn’t even try to hide the fact that he was infuriated about being assigned a partner.

“Stick her with someone else. I’m a loner; I have always worked alone,” reinforcing his distaste of working alongside anyone.

“That’s the problem. You need a partner. No man’s an island, Agent Turner.”

“How cliché can you get? I don’t want her. Give her to someone else.” Agent Turner turned to eye the woman sitting in his office waiting for him. “As good as she looks, I’m sure one of the other guys will take her.”

“She’s not a puppy up for adoption, Turner. She’s a top of her class profiler and, just so you know, she can run circles around the men she was trained with at Quantico. Just think… you’ll have a partner who can go undercover as bait. Most of your cases are male serial killers and she may come in handy.”

“Well, that’s something at least… Maybe if I use her as bait, someone will abduct her and get her out of my hair.”

“That’s not funny, Agent. Now be nice and go introduce yourself to your new partner. In other words, I’m not going to change my mind.”

Agent Turner huffed and made his way into his office to meet the new partner he didn’t want. He sat behind his desk and took stock of the woman fresh out of the academy.

She was dressed in the standard black suit and had applied minimal make-up. She had long, red hair that appeared to have a mind of its own. She had attempted to pull it back in a tight braid but some of it still insisted on coming loose and fell in wisps around her face. Her eyes were bright green and held a look of eagerness in their depths. She was animated and though she made a valiant attempt to hide her enthusiasm behind a professional mask, her excitement was still evident in her expression.

His disdain was just as palpable as her enthusiasm, but it clearly didn’t seem to be thwarting her determination to get started on her first case with him.

She jumped up in an overeager manner and stuck her hand out to shake his in introduction. “Rene Murphy, sir. My name’s Rene Murphy.”

“Yeah, I got that the first time,
Agent Murphy.
We don’t use first names here. Well, let me rephrase that… I don’t permit agents who work for me to use first names. You’d do well to refer to me as Agent Turner at all times and just so we’re clear, you work for me.”

“Yes, sir,” she answered, almost too quickly as she ran behind him out the door.

“And another thing,” he began, not waiting to see if she was listening, “I do the driving.”

He never heard her respond because he was already five steps ahead, uncaring if she followed, and still resenting the fact that he had the newbie on his heels. In fact, he didn’t even bother to fill her in on the case they were headed out to investigate. Why waste time training her if he wasn’t going to keep her anyway?

“Where are we headed?” she asked as they jumped in the car.

“You’ll see…” was the only answer he gave her. Agent Turner was doing everything he could to make it evident he didn’t want her, he wasn’t going to keep her, and he didn’t give a shit if she knew it. In fact, he was going out of his way to let her know that she wasn’t welcome.
