Known for sparkling originality and dazzling dialogue, USA Today bestselling author Julie Kenner blends the intrigue of film noir with the fun of a sexy romance in this fast and flirty new novel.
Sexy private investigator David Anderson takes one look at Jacey Wilder and knows she's no femme fatale. The red-headed smart-aleck in his office couldn't be more different from the tight-skirted dames he creates in the pulp fiction novels he writes in his spare time. But Jacey is a paying customer and he's encountered precious few of those lately. All he has to do is track down her old boyfriend. How hard could it be?
With her thirtieth birthday fast approaching, Jacey is determined to get her life on track. Locating her old flame -- a suave, normal guy -- seems like the logical first step. But when she enlists the services of P.I. Anderson, logic is suddenly in short supply: the tough-talking detective is the one who is making her blood sizzle and Jacey's starting to wonder if the man she's really searching for isn't right under her nose....

Excerpt from Nobody But You by Julie Kenner
"I need the best," the dame in the doorway said.
She sashayed in to my office, her painted-on skirt hugging curves tighter than a Ferrari maneuvering the Swiss Alps. Her hips twitched out a message in Morse Code just for me -- a message I considered answering, then thought better of it.
You just never know with dames.
I keep a hard wooden chair across from my desk. Uncomfortable, so as to discourage clients from staying and shooting the breeze. She glided to the chair and sat down. Her short, red skirt rode up her thigh, revealing the black lace top of thigh-high stockings.
I sucked in my breath and cursed buying that damn chair.
"They tell me that's you," she crooned. "The best, I mean." I concentrated on the way her lips moved under blood-red lipstick. "I need you, Mr. Anderson."
Anderson? Who the hell was Anderson? "You got the wrong sap, lady," I said. A damn shame, too. "The name's Monroe. Philip Monroe. Private detective, at your service."
