Royal, Texas – Present Day

Alisha Winters, along with her brother, Marcus, and his fiancée, Jessica, recently discovered a missing piece of jewelry hidden in their family’s basement. It apparently belonged to someone else and was stolen by their late great-grandmother. The problem is that the piece of jewelry belongs to the Del Rio family and if it is discovered who exactly stole it, then it would jeopardize the recent détente between the two rival families. One day, Tremaine Knowles shows up on Alisha’s doorstep. He’s been hired to investigate the reappearance of the jewelry. He immediately suspects Alisha isn’t telling him the truth—and he would be right. 

Sparks fly immediately between Alisha and Tremaine. Unfortunately, he’s there to do a job and she can’t have him find out the truth. Or, at least until she and her brother can complete their own investigation as to how their great-grandmother got possession of the necklace. After the hotel where Tremaine was staying forces him out due to a gas leak, Alisha decides to offer him a place to stay at her home. Why did she ask him? Maybe it was to keep an eye on him and his investigation. Or maybe it is because she is attracted to him and hopes they will be able to act upon it. But Alisha could be playing a dangerous game if she gets involved with Tremaine. He might discover her secret—and break her heart. 

Imagine hiding a secret from someone but feeling attracted to them. That is how Alisha feels in UNDER THE SAME ROOF. Family will always come first for her, even if that means hiding a secret from the authorities and her brother Jericho and his fiancée Maggie, who happens to be a Del Rio. It was the engagement of Jericho and Maggie that brought together the feuding families. Alisha, Marcus, and Jessica all agreed that they needed to learn more before they told the truth about how they found the necklace. Meanwhile, Tremaine is breathing down Alisha’s neck. It is like he can read her mind and knows that she is lying. But there is no denying their mutual attraction. Before he has barely settled into his room at her house, she is asking him to make love to her. Will he turn her down, or will they embark on a naughty fling?

Both Alisha and Tremaine are smart people who want to do the right thing, though she goes about it in a different manner. Readers will enjoy the sexual chemistry that sizzles between them in UNDER THE SAME ROOF. Part of the Texas Cattleman’s Club series, this can be read as a standalone book without too much trouble. It’s a compelling and emotional read that you won’t want to miss.
