More about Fatal AffairWashington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career–and her confidence–after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O’Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed, and Sam is assigned to the case. Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O’Connor’s friend and chief of staff…and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case. Sleeping with a material witness is another mistake she can’t afford–especially when the bodies keep piling up.

From Marie: Fatal Affair is a very special book for me because of the amazing journey it started for me back in 2007 when I first started writing this series. Long before anyone had heard of Scandal or House of Cards, I had an idea about a homicide detective who becomes romantically involved with a politician in Washington, DC, and the series I could write for them. We all know there’s no end to the things that go on in our nation’s capital, especially for a fiction writer with an overly active imagination! It took a long time to find a publisher that was interested in a romance series that features the same couple in every book. By the time I sold Fatal Affair to Carina Press, a division of Harlequin, in early 2010, I’d already written book 2, Fatal Justice.

Since Fatal Affair was first released in 2010, the Fatal Series has sold more than 1 million books, and Sam, Nick and their supporting cast have become fan favorites. Books 6-9, Fatal Mistake, Fatal Jeopardy, Fatal Scandal and Fatal Frenzy have all been New York Times bestsellers. I just signed a new contract for books 10 – 13, and I can’t wait to see what’s next for Sam and Nick.
