mailing, and I'll keep writing. I think I might have one more in me after this. In the meantime,
please enjoy Heart and Soul , and thanks so much for taking the time to let me know you care
about the guys.
Author's Note
While Heart and Soul may be read as a stand-alone book, readers would probably enjoy it
more if they took the time to get to know Detectives Valenti and O'Brian, starting with The
Assignment , followed by I'll Be Hot for Christmas and then Fireworks . All preceding books are
available at Loose Id.
Chapter One
LA, the early '80s
“I'm takin' it.” His partner's words rang in Detective Nick Valenti's head as he walked
purposefully up the broad marble steps, adjusting the gray coveralls he was wearing that said
Chuck's Emergency Plumbing—We fix it fast ! in red letters on the back. His heart was beating a
quick rhythm in his chest, and the toolbox he carried had more than just tools in it. Under the
wrenches and wire and the long metal snake to unclog drains was a snub-nosed Viper with a full
clipa deadly surprise for anyone who crossed him. Valenti had considered wearing the gun on
his body instead of hiding it in the toolbox, but he was afraid that a suspicious bulge under the
coveralls would give the game away too soon.
The disguise was necessary to get him into the huge white mansion of porn kingpin James
Talbert. A huge white mansion where unspeakable things went on, if you believed half the
rumors and all the conveniently absent witnessesmost of them slender, hot little twinks who
had checked into the Talbert mansion and never checked out again. Even now those same
unspeakable things might be happening to Valenti's partner, Sean O'Brian.
Valenti shook his head. He didn't want to think about thatcouldn't afford to think of it if
he wanted to get O'Brian out alive. If only the stubborn bastard hadn't been so determined to
jump headlong into danger! His mind went back to their argument the month before, when
Captain Harris had offered them the risky assignment. Well, had offered it to O'Brian, anyway.
And again, O'Brian's words repeated in his mind…
* * *
“I'm takin' it. I'm takin' it, and that's the last I wanna hear about it.” Sean O'Brian drew
himself up to his full height of five feet nine and turned the blazing power of his sea green eyes
on Valenti.
