A Whole New Woman
Samantha Shaw remembers a time when she believed in true love. When buying Heart Mates—the dating service her now-deceased husband did business with—seemed like a good idea. But her romantic reveries ended the day she found a stash of sexy panties (not hers) hidden in his car. Leaving Sam with one question: What else was the cheating creep hiding?
Try an illegal drug trade—and a whole lot of money. That's just some of what surfaces after a man walks into Heart Mates and promises to kill Sam—and her kids—if she doesn't come up with the cash her spouse stole.
On that disturbing note, Sam decides to really get down to business. Inspired by the savvy heroines of the romance novels she reviews as a hobby, she comes up with a catchy new slogan, gives herself a sexy new makeover, and sets out to rejuvenate Heart Mates—all while tracking down the thug who threatened her. But when she finds him, it becomes chillingly clear that someone even more dangerous is gunning for her. It's enough to set most women shaking in their stilettos. Not Sam. She's got a business to run, a mystery to solve, and a life to save…her own.
