When passion proves dangerous....
Curator Shelby Martin's life is as dry, dull, and dusty as the artifacts with which she works. But when she accepts an adventurous dare posed by her friends, Shelby finds more than one night of unforgettable passion.
No-nonsense Vice cop Josh Nichols has seen his fair share of the seedier side of Baltimore. Drawn to Shelby immediately, Josh can't resist the attraction he feels for the quirky, yet sexy, woman coming on to him in the bar. And when she bails without leaving her number after a night of hot sex, he's reeling with desire to see her again.
But suddenly, when Shelby and Josh are thrown together to solve a crime at Shelby's museum, neither can trust the other. Josh sees Shelby in a different light. The carefree and courageous sex goddess from their one night together is nothing like the reserved introvert standing before him. Determined to understand the intriguing woman, he vows to solve the mystery behind the museum and the secrecy behind the woman. As suspicion riddles them with doubt and misconceptions, they struggle to find common ground. After all, they can't possibly build a future on one night of passion--passion that just might tear them apart.

About the Author
Lisa grew up with an overactive imagination, strong encouragement from her parents, and an insatiable infatuation with the Peanuts gang. That infatuation—along with an impatience she has yet to outgrow—jump-started her love of writing. After all, why should she be forced to wait a whole week to read the stories of her favorite characters when she could create stories for them whenever she wanted?
That love of writing continued to grow, along with all those voices in her head, even during her assorted careers: first as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department, then a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.
Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons, one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count.
You may find Lisa on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/LisaBKamps or reach her via email at LisaBKamps@gmail.com She's also on Twitter @LBKamps, but admits she's still trying to figure that one out!

INTERESTING READ. 3.5 stars. This is a standalone book with no cliffhanger and an HEA. Hot and steamy sex so definitely a book for 18+. This is a quick and enjoyable, even if predictable, romance. A one night stand between a vice cop and a museum curator that turned into more. I received a copy of this book and chose to write a review for other readers.
