Beg For Mercy - Jami Alden

Megan Flynn thought she was falling in love. Cole Williams wasn't just handsome and passionate, he was one of the good guys. Or so she thought, until he arrested her brother-the only family she has left-for a murder she knows he couldn't have possibly committed. Now, with her heart broken and her brother's life hanging in the balance, Megan will risk everything to prove his innocence. Even if that means throwing herself into the path of a sadistic killer with a hauntingly familiar MO.

Seattle Detective Cole Williams had given up on making Megan see reason where her brother is concerned. But when she insinuates herself into the most shockingly brutal case Cole has ever worked, he can't stand idly by. Plunged into a secret world where the city's elite indulge their darkest desires, Cole will do whatever it takes to bring down a madman who has made Megan his most coveted prey.

Beg for Mercy is the first in a new series.  Once Megan's brother, Sean, is convicted of murder, Megan takes it upon herself to prove he is innocent.  When Megan starts to get to close to the truth, all hell breaks loose.  After Cole was the one to arrest Sean, and then publicly denounced his feeling for Megan, she wrote him off, never wanting to see him again.  While Cole is conducting his investigation of new murders, Megan is hell bent on finding out if the new set of murders are connected to her brother's case.  After convincing Cole to give her classified information, she is more convinced then ever that her brother is innocent, but her brother has given up hope and refuses to fight the justice system any longer.  Megan is running out of time, and there is a killer on the loose that is closer than she ever imagined.  Can the heat between Megan and Cole keep the case alive, keep the bed sheets warm AND catch a killer?

I loved this book, this was my first Jami Alden book, but not my last.  Once I got in to Jami's writing style, I was hooked.  I had a very hard time putting it together.  The suspense was intense.  I thought I knew who the real killer was, then I guessed again, then I wasn't was GREAT.  The romance was hot, and believable.   The secondary characters were intriguing, and you were left wanting more, but in a good way.  I can't wait until Sean's story comes out in November.
