Larklyn Davis, professional dressage trainer by day and amateur sleuth by impulse, is ready to admit it: she loves solving murder cases. And her track record is pretty impressive.

I turned my boyfriend into a vampire and now he won’t return my calls.

I’m operating on a low budget with a broken heart until a client makes me an offer I can’t refuse – go undercover in a sex cult to find his sister. This cleaning lady isn’t interested in getting down and dirty, but I could use the getaway.

At first the cult only seems interested in bringing humans and supes together…in bed. But I quickly discover there’s way more than just group orgies happening here. Despite preaching peace and love, I suspect their real aim is to force their own brand of sexual healing onto the rest of the world.

Complications increase when Nico shows up, worried for my safety. As the attraction that’s been simmering between the two of us threatens to boil over, will Nico and I go all the way to solve the case? Or can I save the day and keep our relationship squeaky clean? (Amazon)
