Romance, humor, mystery:
Brad Malone, undercover cop, is trying to blend with the homeless community and find a killer before somebody else dies. He's been a cop for thirteen years. Dealing with murder is nothing new to him. However, he's never before dealt with anyone like television news reporter, Allison Prescott. She follows him, takes his picture, asks embarrassing questions and gets close enough that she could blow his cover. Yet in spite of his irritation with her and the warning of his own common sense, he finds himself involved in her personal life, helping her deal with her obnoxious ex, taking her daughter to a rock concert and falling in love with her.
Allison is struggling to start over after her plastic surgeon husband dumped her for his hot young nurse. Dr. Doug got the big house, the nice car and the fat bank account, though he generously offered Allison a free face lift since she's over thirty. Allison did not think it would be a good idea to let her ex anywhere near her with a sharp knife.
Now Dr. Doug is suing for custody of their daughter, twelve-year old Megan, and Allison doesn't have the money to fight him. With nothing on her resume except "homemaker" and "mom," Allison is lucky that an old friend helps her get her a job as a reporter for a local television station. However, her beginner's salary isn't enough to fight Dr. Doug in court. She needs a big story, a promotion and a raise. Allison will do whatever it takes to keep her daughter.
She's covering the story of the latest murder of a homeless man on the streets of Oklahoma City when she spots a derelict who looks anything but homeless. He's too alert, too well-muscled…too sexy. Who is this man and why is he pretending to be one of the street people? Can he be the murderer?
Her daughter thinks he's a famous rock star in hiding.
Dr. Doug thinks he's generally annoying. He resents this strange man who effortlessly hustles him out the door when he's not finished berating Allison. He's also disturbed by the spate of tickets he's suddenly getting…parking, speeding, failure to signal…but surely there's no connection.
Whoever this man is, Allison is determined to stick to him like glue until she gets the big story which will equal more money which will equal the ability to fight for her daughter. But her plans did not include falling in love.
