Can a touch of Satin bring a straight copper to his knees?
Detective Joel Hunter is on surveillance when he first lays eyes on Satin, the singer with the amazing voice, which is as beautiful as she is. But when the stake-out comes to an end, he can’t resist going back to the bar. He gets a shock when he learns what lies beneath the satin dress, but an even bigger one when he realizes he’s attracted to the owner of that sultry voice – Ross Dauntry.
Ross can’t figure out why the cop keeps coming back, even after he’s learned the truth. Is Joel attracted to him, or to Satin? Because the answer is important, and one way or another, Ross needs to know…
This book opened my eyes in many ways – learning the difference between a female impersonator vs drag queen, (I had erroneously thought the 2 were synonymous); leaning that not all female impersonators are cross-dressers. And most of all, I realised that I really like stories about female impersonators ☺
As Satin, Ross is an elegant lounge singer who sings of heartbreak; when he is Ross, he’s a young man who has experienced loss and heartbreak but is all the stronger for it. Joel is a solid policeman (DC) who finds himself attracted to Satin, but falls in love with Ross.
There is a bit of angst with the MC’s separating a couple of times – Joel is unsure of his feelings towards Ross, (after all he’s been ‘straight’ up to this time). But once he works out that what he feels for Ross is like nothing he’s felt for any of the women he’s dated in the past, he goes to get his man.
This is story about getting over misconceptions and opening one’s self to new experience, (I know I learnt from it).
I really enjoyed reading and plan on reading Lace, the first in the series (both are standalones).
