Fatal Affair by Marie Force is the first book in the “Fatal” romantic suspense series. Publisher: Carina Press, July 2010
Washington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career—and her confidence—after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O’Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed, and Sam is assigned to the case. Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O’Connor’s friend and chief of staff…and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case. Sleeping with a material witness is another mistake she can’t afford—especially when the bodies keep piling up.
When Sam is handed a high-profile murder case, she didn’t know it would change her life. When she runs into a someone from a past who she had a one-night stand, the sparks that was doused is ignited again as the two work to bring the killer to justice. This was an enjoyable read with characters that I want to learn more about. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. My rating: 5 stars
