Diamonds are a dog’s best friend.
Harper Sinclair discovers that her champion, award-winning standard poodle, Ch. Edgewood Sky High Blue is missing her $50,000 diamond dog collar that was given to her by Harper’s eccentric, indulging grandmother. Harper calls the robbery division of the NYPD and reports the theft. The detective they send is surly and tough with a pair of blue eyes that make even this calm, cool socialite’s lungs claw for air.
Rough and tumble Detective Caleb Shaw has better things to do than run over to the penthouse of a frigging socialite to find a frigging collar for a frigging pampered poodle—award winning or not. He has real cases to solve, but when he gets a load of the poodle’s owner, his interest in the case…heats up. Satin sheets or not, he wants Harper.
Can a lovely socialite collar a hard-boiled detective or are they worlds apart?
“So, Harper, has he let you handle his loaded weapon yet?” Brooke asked, taking a sip of the soda she had in her hand.
“She has a trigger finger that’s…very dangerous.” Caleb’s deep voice made Harper’s head jerk around to find him standing behind the bench with an amused look on his face.
Callie and Poe whipped their heads around at the same time. Brooke was too busy spraying her soda all over her lap and the ground.
He leaned his elbows on the back of the dog park bench and gave Brooke a deadpan look. “It could go off unexpectedly.”
Brooke turned a deep red. Never had they ever been caught red-handed gossiping about the men they were seeing. The fact that Caleb had only made Harper giggle, and her heart bounced at the sight of him. She could hardly breathe as her eyes took in everything.
“Is this the drop-dead gorgeous cop?” Poe asked.
Everyone burst into laughter.
