Overview

When a gunshot wound puts him on six months medical leave, 44 yr old fraud investigator Morgan Reed spends two months alone and lonely in Las Vegas before deciding to spend the remaining four months in Sedona visiting his elderly father. The last thing Morgan expects to find there is that his 72 yr old father has become a local Lothario and is being scammed for money by one of the many females in his life. Though it pains Morgan to investigate the man who raised him, doing surveillance on Althea Carmichael gets even more complicated when Morgan discovers how badly he wants to believe the woman professing to be his father's friend is innocent in the matter. He knows that talking a fraud suspect and potential criminal into a having romantic relationship would definitely not be a good thing to do, even if it is the first time Morgan has ever been in love.

At 54, Althea Carmichael is seriously unhappy with her life. Her now decade long widowhood keeps her tethered to a restaurant business she still doesn't want, but can't give up because she has a sick mother-in-law in a nursing home financially dependent on her. Her life is a endless series of hectic work days trying to keep the failing business alive just a little bit longer. Then as if that wasn't enough problems, Morgan Reed comes along and says he wants to date her. Despite the fact that Thea doesn't want the complications of a relationship, Morgan talks his way into her bed. Now she is practically addicted to the man and he's leaving in a few months. His looming departure is difficult enough to handle, but nothing compares to discovering Morgan’s real agenda for getting close to her was because he believes she's been scamming money from his elderly father. Angry at herself as much as at him, Thea does the only sane thing she can and kicks the jaded, cynical man out of her life for good.

Meet the Author

After 35 years of doing everything for a living except writing books, Donna McDonald finally published her first romance novel in March of 2011. Ten novels later, she is now living her own “happily ever after” life as a modestly successful author who gives back to the universe by doing her best to keep several Lexington, Kentucky coffee shops in business. McDonald dreams of selling her house and taking to the open road once she figures out how to do so without her children and grandchildren finding out. For the time being, she continues to live contentedly with her permanent fiancée of many years who helps her sneak away from real life as often as he can. She loves him dearly for it.
