A beautiful no-nonsense marine, one by-the-book ruggedly handsome homicide detective, and the case that may well give them eternal bliss or eternal rest, can they trust in each other long enough to find out which it will be?

Fallon Maddox is reunited with her family the day they bury her father. She has no idea that coming home will be the beginning of an adventure she may not survive and even if she does, her life will never be the same.

Ian Cavanaugh is a homicide detective who is wrapped up in a case that may not be as simple as it first appears. The deceased is the father of a group of foster children who had made quite a reputation for themselves when he was growing up. He knew it was in his best interest to get the case solved ... and fast.

His priorities begin to waver as he is reunited with the only daughter in the family. Her never-wavering calm makes him want to shatter it and expose the passion he knows lies beneath it. No matter how hot blooded their unions are, it was becoming clear that he may have to choose between love and his brotherhood in blue, for their families seemed to always be at increasing odds.

Will he have time to make the decision or will it be made for him?


The Detective’s Lover is an erotic, multicultural romance. It's filled with plenty of action, conflict, and suspense. The suspense is dark and edgy, but makes for a great read.

I enjoyed Fallon and Ian's story. The emotions of the characters were fleshed out well, but the characterization could have been done a little more. There were a few times where I got lost and confused, and had to go back to make sure I didn't miss something.

Overall, I found this to be a good romantic suspense novel. Interracial romances are always interesting to read about because it blends two different worlds together and leaves the characters to adapt to different situations.

If you enjoy suspense, romance, plenty of love scenes to make your toes curl, then don't miss The Detective’s Lover.
