Graduate student, Grace Locke moved from the Midwest to New York City to complete her Masters degree in Criminology. She longs to one day be a college professor. She takes a part time secretarial job at a private investigator office, she assumes it will be interesting to watch how the cases unfold. Even more perfect is that the office is run by street wise hardened males. It was time to toughen up or she wouldn’t make it in a career she yearned to have. She finds power and defiance in her new attitude—until Vinnie.
Fragments of Ash
My name is Ashley Ellis… I was thirteen years old when my mother – retired supermodel, Tig – married Mosier Răumann, who was twice her age and the head of the Răumann crime family. When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched “work” he expected me to do.
It sucks waking up rich, then finding out your father has stolen everything you had. But a clause in my grandmother’s will can solve all my problems. There’s one catch – I need to have a baby. I’ve always wanted to be a mother. To have a family. But I’ll need to beat my rival cousin to the delivery room in order to inherit. Good thing my best friend’s devilishly handsome brother needs a cash injection to keep his construction company afloat.
