Is Nicky Sassy Enough? Six Sentence Sunday

Posted: September 3, 2011 in Uncategorized

Well, I must tell you Nicky is screaming to be heard. Tired of long Board meetings and screaming battles over ordering pool chairs, she longs for a hot bath, a glass of wine and a sensuous romantic read. Too bad she’s called out in the middle of the night to see why the developer of the community is impaled on the pool gates, stuffed full of pink flamingos. There’s one saving grace – a wickedly hot detective who knows how to boil her blood! Rough-hewn and sultry, he sets her on fire. Let’s take a taste…

“Are you always such a ball buster or does the term ice queen follow you around in the community?”

Nicky smiled and sauntered toward him, knowing he anticipated some hot fiery answer or perhaps a kick in the groin. For some reason she enjoyed the hell out of this game. Tyler was witty, intelligent as hell and good looking to boot, so why not play a little? Licking her lips, she gave him a come hither look. “Wanna find out?”


When Community Association Manager Nicky French received a call about one of her communities in the middle of the night, she knew something serious was up. Finding the developer of Leopard’s Pointe impaled on the iron pool gates surrounded by a sea of inflatable pink flamingoes, Nicky was stunned to find bonfires raging and the community rejoicing. William Barrington was the brilliant designer of the upscale multi-use community, yet apparently everyone wanted him dead. And there were too many suspects to name including every single homeowner in the community and his two sons.

For rough and tumble Detective Tyler Deverall to be called to a scene of a murder in the middle of the night was nothing unusual. And given the only thing keeping the owners from partying all night long and celebrating thus hindering his investigation was Nicky French’s tough stance, Tyler was intrigued.

As Nicky and Tyler set out to find the murderer, builders begin to drop like flies with each murder becoming more horrific and comical than the last. Set against the backdrop of Chesterfield County, Virginia, enter the realm (and sometimes nightmare) of one very special homeowner’s association – where living can be dangerous to your health. As Nicky and Tyler delve into the wild world of spray painted flowers, kinky sex, neon signs and a tango with the mafia, they soon learn that their understanding of humanity will never be the same. Who knew a glue gun could be such an effective murder weapon?

The first in a series – Pinked will be released on October 17th from Rebel Ink Press. Don’t you just want to smack her?
