It’s been two years since Eva Sokolov came home to join the local police force in hopes of putting to rest the unsolved mystery of her parents’ brutal murder. But after all these years, the case is beyond cold. Things heat up when she responds to a swatting call at the high school and encounters the charmingly goofy math teacher, Nate Gardner. While the chemistry is undeniable, Eva is–by reputation–a cold and hardened woman with a talent for failed relationships. Secretly, she dons silk lingerie and loses herself in romance books. But her secrecy isn’t limited to the undergarments she hides beneath her masculine uniform and bulletproof vest. She also is able to teleport, a skill she considers more of a risk than an asset. And given that her parents’ killer has returned and is intent on trying to expose her and finish her off once and for all, she may be right.

Carrigan Fox began developing her passion for writing during her gruesome middle school years, where the prospect of escaping into a world of her own making was infinitely more satisfying than that of the petty pre-teen dramas that baffled her. When she was nineteen, someone had the audacity to suggest that she consider writing romance.
Instead, her writing took a backseat to her budding teaching career, where she has spent fifteen years struggling to comprehend how someone couldn’t love Dickens, Twain, and Wilde. But with the rise of the self-publishing industry, she realized she now had no excuse to avoid pursuing her dream.
She continues to balance her teaching and writing careers while also keeping busy with her family. Her next goal is to try her hand at gardening, but past experience has taught her that her husband’s thumb is greener than hers. She has also been toying with landscape design, and she finds that she does well with the concrete blocks. She can’t kill them, which works well for the blocks.
And nineteen years after she snorted at the preposterous suggestion of writing romance, she decided to do exactly that! Fortunately for all involved, the survival of her protagonists is dependent only on her imagination rather than her ability to avoid over-watering them.

After wrapping up the second historical romance of a trilogy, I needed a break from the research. So I decided to dig in with another paranormal. I felt like teleportation was something that hadn’t been done to death. And the directions I could take the story were limitless. From there, Detective Sokolov evolved and the other characters formed around her.
