Bad Cop by Angela McCallister
Book #2 in the Immortalis series
A cop who tosses the rulebooks to get his way…
Vampire Ian McCready doesn’t care for Alice Capshaw’s opinions about his version of justice. Her humanity makes her off-limits, but that does nothing to lessen his overwhelming desire for her. To Alice, Ian is just another bad cop as detestable as the one who destroyed her family. She’s attracted to him, yes, but he threatened his way into her agency’s murder case and has too many secrets.
When a new case resurrects ghosts Ian believed long dead and buried, his law-bending ways might result in his execution. The second Alice becomes a target, his cold heart flares into blinding existence. But following the law for her sake may end with devastating results.
ExcerptAs predicted, the sun had been long gone by the time she reached the office to find Ian waiting not so patiently at her office door. Practically edible in thigh-hugging black jeans and a hunter-green, ab-loving T-shirt, he stopped midprowl when she approached. Expression thunderous, his eyebrows lowered in a scowl until they nearly touched and a frown pulled at the corners of his lips.“How have you been getting into the building? We have security, you know.” She pushed past him, unlocking her door and tossing her coat and purse across her desk. He was a breath behind her.“Never mind how I got in. You didn’t answer your phone. Where’ve you been?”She whirled on him. “You are not my boss. You don’t set my hours, and you don’t get to be all huffy because you had to wait a few minutes.”He got right in her face, his minty breath brushing her skin and raising goose bumps. “It was an hour. In case you forgot, we have murders to solve.”“In case you forgot, an hour isn’t going to bring them back to life. Get. Off. My. Ass.”Eyes widening, he laughed. “Who pissed in your Cheerios?”“It was Lucky Charms.” She grinned.His head tilted in a way that totally did not appeal to her feminine, I-want-you-to-rip-my-panties-off side. No, it did not.“Thinking of me when you went for those?”Actually, she had been, but he didn’t need to know that.“Why are your pants on fire?” God, don’t think about his pants.Don’t check them out. She focused on his T-shirt with the words Vampires Suck across his broad chest. Nope, that didn’t help one bit.“Got a lead, a huge one.” His grin widened, deepening the dimples she wanted to lick.
Angela is very laid-back and happy to try just about anything once, from skydiving, sailing, slacklining, Aikido, and even hang-gliding--as long as she doesn't have to subject anyone to her "singing" or make an appearance in a bikini. Like all authors, she's crazy for books, especially Romance, and will talk about them for days. She's currently stationed at Naval Base Ventura County Point Mugu in California where she can be spoiled with some of the best weather in the country. With such platforms as an aircraft carrier, an amphibious ship, and an Aegis destroyer, and duty stations in Illinois, Washington, Hawaii, and California, her experiences vary widely. She's visited Thailand (a favorite), Bahrain, Dubai, Jebel Ali, Hong Kong, Guam, Canada, Mexico, and Singapore. She's a member of RWA San Diego, From the Heart Romance Writers, and Rose City Romance Writers and especially loves to hear from and meet readers and fellow authors.
