Nikko needs a scandal. Something, anything, that will keep media eyes on him and far away from the fight for his deadbeat brother´s children. When he sees Jake Hallow in a bar, it seems a perfect solution. What would cause more noise than planting a kiss on a ruler-straight country star? He didn´t expect Jake to kiss him back. Jake´s faced a lot of surprises in the forty-four years he´s been alive. But being kissed senseless by the beautiful Nikko Star is something else entirely, and he doesn´t at all know what to do with the long-banked feelings that Nikko turns into a blaze. Or the disappointment he feels when he learns the real reason Nikko kissed him. But hearing Nikko´s story, Jake decides to help, and agrees to give the world a fake love affair for the sake of protecting a couple of kids. And he´s always believed in putting on one hell of a show-no matter how much it leaves him hurting when the lights go down.

When Perri´s BFF Babette hosts a meeting of Fairfax County´s affluent animal lovers to save a local horse rescue farm, the agenda gets sidetracked by the discovery of a corpse in the master bedroom. Everyone present is a suspect, including Perri´s main squeeze, Wing Pruett-Washington, DC´s sexiest reporter. While Perri scours local horse and dog shows hoping to unmask the killer, she uncovers bad manners, infidelity, and low-level crime in her hunt for the killer-but what she can´t find are grounds for murder. When the killer strikes again and she gets a warning to stop her sleuthing, Perri has to muster all her training-and all her allies, human and animal alike-to make it out of the ring alive.
