New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kasey Michaels offers a snappy, sexy - and completely original - take on comic mystery with the first book in a new series. Incredibly sexy, tall, dark, handsome, with an accent to die for and charm to spare, Alexandre Drake, Viscount Saint Just, is everything mystery writer Maggie Kelly has ever dreamed of in a man. There's just one problem. He's not real. He's the character who's made her a bestselling author. But for some reason, he is standing in the middle of her apartment. With the adorable, bumbling sidekick she created for him by his side. But just as Maggie's getting used to her new houseguests, things get quite a bit more complicated. It seems her ex-lover, Kirk Toland, ever the inconsiderate cad, has had the nerve to die right there in her living room...of poisoning...after a dinner Maggie made. And if that weren't weird enough, Toland's death is soon followed by the murder of a colleague whom everyone knows Maggie hated. So the mystery writer has become the murder suspect. And the only sleuth who's really on Maggie's side is the one she invented.
