Of all the juice joints he had to bust, this one had to be hers…

In the world of illegal speakeasies, Kate Kirkland has her life running smoother than a Model T. Maybe moving the family bar into the basement wasn’t the best choice for her alcoholic brother, but Kate’s making them a living—until a local gangster tries to expand his territory. Right into her bar.

Luckily Micah Trent, her handsome and too-suave bootlegger, is ready and willing to offer her a helping hand. If Kate can bring herself to accept it. Since sharing one sensual dance to seal their deal, she can’t ignore the delectably wicked way he makes her feel.

Micah is keeping secrets of his own. He’s a Prohibition Agent, sworn to shut down the gin mills and distilleries that keep illegal booze flowing. Kate’s speakeasy is next on his list—right after he uses her as bait to catch the gangster hunting her.

But even if Micah and Kate can maneuver their way through the gangsters’ dangerous underworld, will their love survive the trial by fire?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Dear Author, 15 April 2010, reviewed by Jayne. B+ “Kate is a strong heroine up against some tall odds… With all the risks involved, the attraction which Micah fights for Kate seems all the more powerful.”

Babbling About Books and More, 1 March 2010, reviewed by Katiebabs. A- “Not only has [Lorelie Brown] written a wonderful and steamy romance, but her storytelling skills, intricate, thought out plot and characters really hooks you…. This is an excellent, well written romance that comes across somewhat literary in its telling.”

The Bookpushers, 28 Feb 2010, reviewed by E. 4.5 Stars. “I was immediately drawn into the world of speakeasies, and undercover agents… I could feel Kate’s struggles and frustration with her brother, her intense attraction to Mica, and her determination not to lose her family business by mixing business with pleasure – or by meekly giving into the local gangster’s demands.”

Dark Diva Reviews, 5 April 2010, reviewed by AJ. 4.5 out of 5. “Bravo to Ms. Brown for providing us with a sexy, enticing story during Prohibition that will draw the reader into the storyline, make you laugh at times from the bantering between the characters and have you sitting on the edge of your seat wondering how it will all play out in the end.”
