A bevy of beautiful women lounging around the conference table at Camacho and Associates, each exhibiting their own take on ‘aloof’, wasn’t exactly par for the course, but it wasn’t all that surprising, either. When I stepped through the door of the PI firm I worked for, what waited for me was anybody’s guess.
But abundantly flowing locks, perfectly tanned bodies, perky breasts with enticingly rounded cleavage were a surprise.
I knew one thing for sure… they were clients, and while I didn’t know what the case was, I definitely wanted to be the lead investigator.
Let me tell you about Manny Camacho. He owns the small investigative firm in Sacramento, is an ex-cop, and super PI, and Dios mio, he’s dark and misterioso.
And then there’s Jack Callaghan. He’s the one I’ve wanted since I was in high school, and we’ve been on again/off again since he came back to Sac. If only I could tell him about this new case, but going under cover for the Sacramento Royals Dancers, and then the whole nudist tie-in… I just don’t know if he’d understand.
I know mis padres wouldn’t. Mami would be lighting candles and praying the rosary over and over. I’m a good girl, and really, how far am I willing to go for my job.
That’s the big question, and I don’t know the answer. Will I, or won’t I go nude for a case, and what will Jack think if I do?
Ay caramba, decisions, decisions.

About Bare-Naked Lola
Going undercover is second nature for Private Investigator Lola Cruz, but she’s out of her league when the case of a murdered Royals Courtside Dancer leads her to a local nudist resort. Parading around the sidelines of Sacramento’s professional basketball scene in a barely-there cheerleading outfit is one thing—but parading around in nothing but smile? If she has any chance of hiding this from her traditional family and on-again/off-again boyfriend Jack, she’s going to have a lot more than her duct tape bra and killer dance moves to keep under wraps.
