Marina Petrocelli's life is about as mundane as it gets for the sister of an infamous psychic/paranormal PI. Which is why she's pretty shocked when a couple of vampires try to kidnap her on her way home from work. And don't even get her started on the sexy-as-all-hell Irish dhampyre who gallantly (if somewhat drunkenly) rushes to her rescue out of nowhere, kisses the ever-lovin' crap out of her, then disappears without a trace. It's all too weird to comprehend Quinn Connell's life is anything but mundane. As an ex-convict with a shady past and an even shadier employment history, all he has to do is obey the terms of his parole, which are exceedingly simple: get a job, and stay out of trouble. Unfortunately, getting involved with Marina is the very definition of trouble for someone like him. And, as it turns out, her sister is the only employer in town willing to hire him. Quinn's head tells him Marina's officially off limits. Too bad his heart-and body, which can't seem to stop touching her-didn't get the memo.But when Quinn and Marina find themselves in the middle of a brutal life-or-death situation, Quinn knows keeping his distance and staying out of trouble is no longer an option. He'll do anything to keep Marina safe, even if it means relying on a few of his quirky (and sometimes scary) new coworkers and utilizing the very same dubious skills that landed him in prison in the first place. Nab the bad guys, stay out of prison, and (hopefully) get the girl. Easy, right?Yeah, not so much.WARNING: Semi-Obsessed is a novella in the Harper Hall Investigations series. You can read it as a stand-alone, but it works best if you've read the other books in the series, starting with Semi-Charmed. It also works best if you like kick-ass heroines and the sometimes befuddled alpha heroes who love them. You also might want to skip this one if you don't have a healthy appreciation for cussing and pop culture references. But for everyone else, enjoy.
