Scent of Persuasion by Nikki Duncan is a novel that will have the reader hoping for a happy ending. The reader is introduced to two people looking for revenge for the wrongs that have been done to family members. Kami the female lead character is undercover as a call girl to find the person that killed the closet thing that she could call family. I found this novel to be a great pleasure to read. The characters were very well developed and the story kept a quick pace that left me wanting more! Though this is the second book in the series it really doesn't matter if you read this as a standalone or a part of the series. Some of the characters carry from story to story but I never felt that I was missing some key point to the story. Never did I guess what would happen, and the shocking conclusion made me an instant fan of Ms. Duncan’s writing.
Kami swore to herself she would never return to the world that Breck Lawson belongs too, but there is something about him that tempts her into his world. She has seen many things in her life and she knows that the suicide of her stepbrother isn't at all what it seems. When too many coincidences and connections bring Breck and Kami together there will be no stopping what they feel for each other. While in the grips of a mysterious murder will their love conquer all or will they fall into the murder's trap?
An alluring woman in a red dress. Is she an ally…or a killer’s lure?
Actress Kami Evans is tackling the biggest role of her life—as an escort. There’s definitely something going on in Madame V’s mansion, but Kami has to prove herself trustworthy before she can dig deeper and prove her stepbrother didn’t commit suicide.
Her first assignment: seduce a CEO and, oddly, steal his hair brush. He’s everything she avoids in a man: suave, sexy, suited. She plays her role all the way to the bedroom…and finds it stunningly difficult to walk away.
Breck Lawson’s undercover assignment, posing as a replacement CEO, is yielding zero clues as to why his friend tried to kill himself—until Kami comes on the scene. She’s everything he likes in a woman: safe, sexy, temporary. She also arouses him just by walking into a room, a sure sign it’s time to push her away.
Then he connects the dots she unwittingly shares, and realizes their investigations are linked by delicate strands of DNA. Keeping her near isn’t wise, but he has to know her secrets and keep her safe.
Unless they trust each other and come clean, those dots could lead to death for both of them…
