When rule-bending PI Rachel McCormick stumbles across evidence that not only incriminates the town mayor of corrupt dealings but endangers her sister's welfare, she's determined to put the politician behind bars. She doesn't count on straitlaced cop Grant Harkness--a rumored lady's man--getting in her way. Not only does he warn her off the case, but he takes her heart into custody with his surprisingly compassionate nature and endearing soft spot for a cat named Helga. Burned by an ex-fiancé and jaded by the unseemly aspects of her job, Rachel tries to ignore the bad boy's claims that he's been redeemed by the God she stopped trusting long ago. But love is not so easily dismissed. Rachel is torn between the bitterness that has fueled her life and the man whose passion stokes within her a new fire, one which could burn away the ashes of her past if only she could learn to trust again.
