Sofie's getting her feet under her as a PI and business is booming. So much so that she's hired her layabout cousin and a one-time petty criminal as "boys of all work". Okay, so her reputation's become, well, complicated - everyone in Astoria, Queens, knows that from time to time she shoots one of her own clients - but on the whole, she's getting a lot more respect than when she was best known for leaving her groom at the altar.
"Sofie done wrong...."
Mace Harrison is a decorated Marine. In his country's eyes, he's a hero. But in six months his last tour ends, and Mace's next step is unclear. Then he meets graphics designer and diner waitress Geneva Davis, and an immediate friendship turns into…well, a business deal. The terms? They feign a relationship to keep her ex-boyfriend off her back, and matchmaking pals off his.
"Did I miss something?"
Sofie Metropolis is the newest P.I. on the mean streets of Astoria, Queens. She's known for her trademark frappes and her itchy trigger finger. Uncle Tolly was acting odd right before he disappeared. The proof? The brand-new Mercedes Tolly just bought. And the business' books, which show that Uncle Tolly was laundering more than just clothes. Which is where the mob comes in, in the darkly handsome figure of Tony DiPiazza.
"If you want to know Greek Food"
Christmas, a kidnapping, Jake Porter, and a stray reindeer - oh my! Sofie’s mother tells her it is the season for miracles, but Sofie’s convinced it’s more of a season for whackos and flashing Santas. After nearly losing a battle with the local strange vampire a month ago, she regrets ever having bitched about boring cheating spouse cases and process serving. She’s ready for a quiet spell doing nothing but finding people’s lost pets. But Sofie’s life will probably never be boring again. After all, kidnapping is never boring. Especially when it’s Sophie who’s being kidnapped.
"Good story, lousy narrator"
After shooting one of her own clients and accidentally getting involved with the mob, Sofie Metropolis is finally starting to get the hang of the PI business. She's just landed her first high-profile case. A local Astoria girl has made good by marrying an up-and-coming South American pitcher who has just been signed by the New York Mets. Reni Venezuela's good looks and charm, not to mention his fastball and his slider, are bringing hordes of fans to Shea Stadium.
"fine for passing the time"
Sofie Metropolis is back and in the deep end of the coffee pot when she's retained by the neighborhood vampire to prove he isn’t responsible for a recent string of grisly murders, and her mother talks her into looking for a missing woman neither of them knows, but Thalia has adopted in absentia nonetheless. And if her plate isn’t full enough, things heat up on the romantic front when ‘bounty hunter’ Jake Porter and yummy Greek baker Dino both decide to vie for her undivided attention.
"A Little Bland"
Sofie's a young Greek-American woman living in Queens. If you'd asked her a few months ago what she'd be doing now, she'd have replied, "I'm going to be married to a wonderful guy and working at my father's, or maybe my grandfather's, Greek restaurant."
"Don't expect too much"
One-night-only anonymous sex with a stranger? Seems too wanton even for Nina Leonard. Until it's insinuated that the mystery man might be one of her business partners - two guys she adores who also happen to be complete hotties.
He wants her caught. She just wants him. Ex-army ranger Jonathon Reece needs to prove himself with his new job at Lazarus Security. And his first big assignment is to hunt down a fugitive wanted for murder. But his cut-and-dried case suddenly gets a lot juicier - and way more complicated - when the fugitive in question is a scorchin'-hot gal who won't take "you're under arrest" for an answer! Normally, Mara Findlay would be delighted to have a nice piece of man like Jon hot on her tail - on the road and in bed! But having been framed for murder and eluding authorities (even sexy ones!) is taking its toll.
"Yeah for the Lil Lady!!"
Some girls just won't take no for an answer… Security expert Jason Savage lives for his job. Nobody gets past him. No one. So why is he so hot under the collar (and then some) about his latest case? Jordan Cosby is just an assignment—albeit a sexy, damn near irresistible one…
It's just a simple surveillance job, right? Former marine and FBI agent Linc Williams is monitoring his target's ex-girlfriend, Regina Dodson. But nothing is simple when he's watching a woman who makes him forget everything – except for the need to know Regina as thoroughly and wickedly as possible….
