Could You Fall in Love in 36 Questions?

The closest star investigative reporter, Jackson Haley and rookie lifestyle writer, Derelie Honeywell are destined to come is an accidental shoulder brush in the breakroom.
Jack is the much admired and feared heartbeat of the city and Derelie is a fresh off the farm try-hard.
Jack’s stories sell newspapers and make the bad guys quake. The only quaking anyone reading Derelie’s stories does is the kind with laughter attached.
Until they’re thrown together, unwilling participants in a love experiment, based on thirty-six questions designed to accelerate intimacy.
But just how intimate can a hard news man chasing a huge expose and a homesick clickbait writer get, when he’s a cat person and she’s a dog person?
And what happens when there are no more questions to answer?


A master jewel thief meets his match in a daring romance of love and larceny… 

Confidence man, master thief and professional crook Cleve Jones knows a thing or two about risk. 

Ten years ago, he risked his freedom to fall in love with a dangerously sexy, foulmouthed, punk-ass professor’s daughter and she disappeared, stealing his future happiness. 

Vegas hustler Aria Harp is back, she’s in disguise, and she’s snatched the famous diamond Cleve’s been casing in a bold heist. She would’ve gotten away clean if her old nemesis hadn’t figured out her sleight of hand and come after her. 

This time around, Aria’s too smart to let Cleve break her heart, but he’ll do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means a dirty double cross and losing the only woman he’s ever loved—all over again.
