Back to Troy

She could lose her heart, mind, life—or all three.

Murders and disappearances. Spicy rumors and family secrets. A childhood crush turned ladies’ man.

This could not end well.

What really brought Emma Dill back to Troy? The need to remember—or to forget? The desire to solve a ruthless murder—or to move on? The hope for a blossoming new romance—or an old flame that just won’t die?

The murderer is a sociopath: a savage hiding in plain sight.

The victim is her mother: a former stripper, a hot-headed, cold-blooded enigma.

She is a twenty-two-year-old orphan: a spunky poodlehead, a spitfire in the guise of a songbird.

Her partner in crime is her old heartache: an irresistible freewheeler, a shameless tease…and a delicious, impertinent kiss.

Charged with fast-paced suspense and slow-burn romance, BACK TO TROY kicks off the series with two hundred pages of heat, adrenaline, and humor.
