Publisher's Summary

A star quarterback and a feisty detective play for keeps in this sporty, sexy, sassy novel - a long-awaited new entry in the beloved award-winning, New York Times best-selling author's fan-favorite Chicago Stars football series.
Piper Dove is a woman with a dream - to become the best detective in the city of Chicago. First job? Trail former Chicago Stars quarterback Cooper Graham. Problem? Graham's spotted her, and he's not happy.
Which is why a good detective needs to think on her feet. "The fact is...I'm your stalker. Not full-out barmy. Just...mildly unhinged."
Piper soon finds herself working for Graham himself, although not as the bodyguard he refuses to admit he so desperately needs. Instead he's hired her to keep an eye on the employees at his exclusive new nightclub. But Coop's life might be in danger, and Piper's determined to protect him whether he wants it or not. (Hint: not!) If only she weren't also dealing with a bevy of Middle Eastern princesses, a Pakistani servant girl yearning for freedom, a teenager who just wants to fit in, and an elderly neighbor demanding Piper find her very dead husband.
And then there's Cooper Graham himself, a legendary sports hero who always gets what he wants - even if what he wants is a feisty detective hell-bent on proving she's as tough as he is.
From the bustling streets of Chicago to a windswept lighthouse on Lake Superior to the glistening waters of Biscayne Bay, two people who can't stand to lose will test themselves and each other to discover what matters most.

Her best book yet!

Would you listen to First Star I See Tonight again? Why?

Yes. The story has great pace, and lots of twists and turns with supporting characters. I was genuinely sad when it came to an end.


What did you like best about this story?

It's funny and feels very modern. SEP plays with the usual romance cliches without falling into them, and keeps the action moving throughout. The heroine feels like someone you'd want to know - and the hero is appealing without being totally (he's still a millionaire sportsman) unrealistic. Its nice that other characters from previous books are referenced, but you can read and enjoy without having read them.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this all in one day. Had it on in the house, and couldn't bear to set it aside, so took it with me as I went shopping, to lunch and then home again. Finally finished it in a bath with a glass of wine. Perfect.
