Book Two of the Deadly Trilogy

Frankie has found the one man she wants more than life itself. If she can only forgive him so they can stop a killer.

In Deadly Deception, the second book of Alexa Grace’s Deadly Trilogy, enter the disturbing world of illegal adoptions, baby trafficking and murder with new detective Lane Hansen and private investigator Frankie Douglas.

Lane Hansen has a problem.  He needs a woman to portray his wife in an undercover operation and the only females on his team are either very pregnant or built like linebackers.  Then he remembers gorgeous P.I. Frankie Douglas — a woman who could take his breath away by her beauty and take him down in 2.5 seconds.  Unfortunately, she’s the same woman he treated like a one night stand six months before.

Frankie Douglas has a problem. She wants to rid the world of one baby trafficking killer.  The only way to do that is to partner with Lane Hanson, the man who hurt her by disappearing from her life after a night of mind-blowing sex.

They’ve been warned!  Getting personally involved with a partner can put cases and lives at risk.  Going undercover as husband and wife, Lane and Frankie struggle to keep their relationship strictly professional as their sizzling passion threatens to burn out of control.

 “Lane, I know you’re ready to do undercover work, but with this case I need two cops who can pose as a married couple.  Unfortunately, we’ve got three women on the team. One is built like a linebacker and the other two are pregnant.”

“Sir, for this case, why don’t we go outside the department?  I know a Private Investigator who can handle herself on a job like this.”

Newly appointed Sheriff Tim Brennan’s brows drew together in a suspicious expression.  “What’s the PI’s name?”

“Frankie Douglas.  I worked with her last year on the Charles Beatty serial killer case.  She’s a former sharpshooter for the Army.”

“Is this the same Frankie Douglas you shot?”

Lane’s face flushed with the guilt he still felt about the shooting.   “Yes, sir.  It was an accident.  We were heading down the stairs of Beatty’s cellar to apprehend him when one of the steps gave way and when I fell my gun went off and hit Frankie.”

“Has Frankie Douglas done police work before?”

“I heard she’s a former detective.”

“I think I’ve heard about her.  Isn’t she a pretty tall blonde woman?”

“Oh, she’s smokin’ hot.  Think Victoria Secret hot.”

“Is that right?  Do you have a personal thing going with Ms. Douglas?”

“No sir.  Strictly professional.”  Of course, if he’d had a chance, he’d have made in personal in 2.5 seconds.

Brennan glared at Lane then picked up his phone and dialed a number.  “Hello, Frankie, this is Uncle Tim.  I may have a job for you. Would you please drop by my office?”
