Can a sheriff untangle the mysteries invading his town and those which surround the local IT geek who’s captured his attention?

Sheriff Robin Burke is pissed off. His quiet seaside town is troubled with all kinds of problems. Looking for the man who tried to poison Samuel Ashford is high on his priority list, but there is more in store. When someone he crushes on returns, he hopes to ignite his non-existent love life.

Returning from London, Beau Courtenay discovers his home has been invaded by his troubled half-brother. Dealing with the chaos, he is busy with a massive backlog of work and renovating the entire Southern Charm system. He finds another troubling detail in the form of random USB interfaces around Shore Breeze that don’t belong there. And there’s also the allure of the sheriff distracting him and threatening to reveal his darkest secret.

What will happen when Robin connects his suspect to the handsome IT geek with the delicious British accent and tight ass? Can Beau help the sheriff follow the law to prosecute anyone who dares to attack their beloved town?

My View:

I have to say this is my favorite of the Southern Charm series to date. It is the most cohesively written and the most developed of the stories thus far.

I have to start off by admitting that I had almost completely forgotten about the entire Samuel allergic reaction debacle. It was left on the back burner too long, so when this story was all about it, I had to force myself to care. But I was so glad I did, because I finally got answers and we finally got that real mystery/adventure feel I have been wishing for.

But for me, the best part of this story was Beau and how the author DID NOT TRY TO FIX HIM! Thank you Ms. Dennis for allowing an asexual character to shine and to find a supporting and loving partner! I loved the neither Beau NOR Robin had to change who they were at heart. They just found love and found ways to compromise so that BOTH men got what they needed. There was learning involved and bound to be some stumbling, but there was LEARNING involved!!!! Ms. Dennis, you have no idea how much it means to me that you wrote this story as you did! This one was just right for me and I will recommend it to anyone looking for a well written asexual romance with a great mystery and some nice action.
