➡WICKED IMPULSE CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE⬅
ALFA Private Investigations is a spin-off of the Men of Inked series, but can be read separately.
**Includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas**
There’s only one thing worse than dating a friend’s sister sleeping with his mother.
Fran DeLuca’s known for her bossy, overbearing personality almost as much as for her love of nylon tracksuits. But when someone runs off with fifty thousand dollars, she becomes involved in an ALFA investigation and catches the eye of silver fox biker, Bear.
Bear North, ALFA’s resident bad boy, has never thought of Fran as anything more than his buddy’s mom. When she trades in her elastic pants and orthopedic tennis shoes for a pair of skintight jeans and high heels, he takes notice of the fifty-something MILF.
When the money trail leads closer to Fran than expected, Bear takes charge of the investigation and will do anything to protect her. Can Bear track a thief, claim Fran, and keep Morgan DeLuca in the dark long enough to solve the case?
Wicked Impulse is book 3 in the ALFA PI series and includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas.
I’ve always found Bear an interesting character. One who has his friends’ backs at all cost but still conceals parts of himself from them, never allowing his brothers to see the pain hidden beneath Bear’s bravado and jokes…the agony that’s lasted three decades since he lost his wife, abandoned his kids, and maneuvered down a path of self-destruction of his own.
The fact that Bear’s a manwhore hasn’t gone unnoticed by his fellow private investigators, which makes the fact that Fran DeLuca, Morgan’s mother, seems to be the one woman who can bring love back into Bear’s life and calm his messed up existence, freeing him from his past and allowing him a way to make amends.
Since meeting Fran in Sinful Intent, I’ve seen her as the hilarious, inappropriate, and a bit nagging mother of Morgan DeLuca and aunt to the Gallo clan. She and her sister-in-law, Maria, love to meddle as well as be a bit too forward in what they choose to share and how they choose to deliver their lessons. But in Wicked Impulse, readers are introduced to a more womanly version of Fran – one who no longer wears track suits as an attempt to keep men away from her…who proves to be quite adventurous in the bedroom with the right partner…who interferes in the lives of the people she loves most in order to give them a chance at a life of love and happiness. All that Fran is, is brought out further by Bear, and together, they heal one another’s past wounds and allow themselves to move forward, knowing that Bear’s impulse to pursue the woman who was supposed to be off-limits has brought them everything they could want and then some.
Bear and Fran’s story is about second chances, redemption, and brotherhood. It’s about taking chances, making changes, and proving that the choices one makes can transform their lives in glorious ways, especially when it’s wrapped in crazy, adventurous, foul mouthed awesomeness.
