Love Me Tender by Lorraine Mace - Book Tour


Love Me Tender

IF HE WANTS YOU . . . THERE'S NO ESCAPE.


A brutal murder . . .
Responding to a tip-off, newly promoted Detective Chief Inspector Paolo Sterling arrives at an apartment block to find the dismembered body of a young woman. And with no indication of a break-in, all signs suggest the killer was known to her.

An abduction in plain sight . . .
Then the victim's friend is snatched with no witnesses and the unanswered questions mount up.

At the same time, Sterling's team are leading the surveillance of a local club, thought to be involved in a drug operation. But when one of his colleagues ends up in hospital close to death, Paolo begins to lose his grip.

A detective on the edge . . .
With the odds stacked against him, and time running out, can DCI Sterling uncover the truth before it's too late? Or will this case finally tip him over the edge?

Excerpt
Boy is waiting for Sasha so that he can tell her he loves her and they can start their life together. The only problem for Sasha is that she doesn’t even know he exists.

He glanced over to the apartment block, but no light shone in her window. Where was she? He’d left work early just for her. His hand gripped the flower stems so tight he could feel each strand of string tying them together. Forcing himself to relax, he dropped the roses back into the bag. Shaking his head, he closed the zip, shutting them from view.

She didn’t know yet she had to come straight home and not keep him waiting. That would be the first lesson he’d teach her. Some understanding of her role would be in order before he handed over the posy of roses.

Another five minutes passed and still no welcoming light showed in her window. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a bag of sweets. They had always been Grammy’s favourites, but he liked them because each one carried a special message. He wondered which one he would need for tonight. When he’d first arrived, he was convinced it could only be ‘She Loves Me’ but now that she’d kept him waiting for so long, maybe he’d have to sort out a different love heart.

Breathe, he told himself; don’t let her selfishness ruin the evening. He would soon encourage her to become a better person.
