My New WiP: To Serve & Protect

If you read my debut novella Obsession you've already met my hero Anthony Stevens. He's the father of Alexandria Stevens-Smyth.

Anthony is forty-seven, divorced, and a NYC Detective. He's spent his life serving his community and protecting it's people. 

To Serve & Protect
(here is a brief unedited summary)

The case was closed, so why did she still haunt him?

Anthony Stevens just closed a case involving one of New York’s prestigious party planners, Vivian Styles.  What he didn’t expect was to be drawn to the much younger victim. Anthony is forty-eight and a grandfather. Deep down he knows he can’t pursue her.  Vivian is young, beautiful, and sophisticated, why would she want a divorced detective when she could have any man she wanted?  

A chance encounter  a few months later with Vivian at a coffee shop could change everything.  Does Vivian feel the the connection between them also? Will Anthony give into his feelings and pursue a relationship with her. How will Alexandria feel about her father dating a woman two years older then her? 

 This takes place between the last chapter and Epilogue of Obsession.

Here is how I envision Anthony...

Here is my Vivian...

If you haven't read Obsession....
