Conspiracy Theory (Veiled Intentions, book 1)
by Elle Keaton
From the author:
Murder, betrayal, love…
Moving home after his father’s death effectively forces Sheriff Mat Dempsey back into the closet, but he’s happy enough. Right?
Bitter and dispirited after years investigating homicides, Niall Hamarsson heads for the only place he’s ever called home.
A body is discovered in the waters off Piedras Island and Mat’s first priority is investigating the murder. He doesn’t need the help of the ex-detective, what he wants from the man is entirely different.
Detective Niall Hamarsson remembers Mat Dempsey, but he’d prefer to avoid him.
Too bad Mat is one piece of his past Niall can’t escape…
Their chemistry is electric, and two heads are better than one, but will Mat’s pride get in the way?
