Christie Craig presents: 15 Things you’ll learn from 
Don’t Mess With Texas that might surprise you!

  1. Never, ever feed a dog broccoli.

  1. You might be surprised how the weight of a dead body in the trunk of your car can go unnoticed.

  1. Don’t ever joke about killing your ex . . . in front of witnesses.

  1. In the right situation, vomiting on someone can endear them to you.

  1. When a good-looking detective steals your underwear, he may not be a pervert; he could just be looking for blood splatter evidence.

  1. Some men think hospital gowns are sexy, especially when a breeze comes by and a detective already stole your underwear.

  1. When your grandmother is getting more action than you are, something’s not right with that picture.

  1. Bed bugs are nasty little creatures but they can come in handy when trying to get someone to fall back in love with you.

  1. In the right set of circumstances, morphine can be an aphrodisiac. 

  1. The consumption of five cupcakes when your heart is hurting is not always a bad thing.

  1. The way a couple shares an ice cream cone tell the viewing public if they’re sharing bodily fluids.

  1. Nothing can bring all the unresolved issues to the surface in a romance more than finding a naked woman in your boyfriend’s bedroom.

  1. The journey to fall in love isn’t all sweetness and light; it can also have its darker moments where you hurt like hell but it’s still a journey that makes life worth living.

  1.   Love can make you laugh so hard you pee in your pants, but it can also make you feel like as though a pit bull just used your heart as a chew toy.

  1.  Things really are hotter in Texas.


Nikki Hunt thought her night couldn't get worse when her no-good, cheating ex ditched her at dinner, sticking her with the bill. Then she found his body stuffed in the trunk of her car and lost her two-hundred-dollar meal all over his three-thousand-dollar suit. Now not only is Nikki nearly broke, she's a murder suspect.

Former cop turned PI, Dallas O'Connor knows what it's like to be unjustly accused. But one look at the sexy-though skittish-suspect tells him she couldn't hurt anyone. The lead detective, Dallas's own brother, has the wrong woman and Dallas hopes a little late-night "undercover" work will help him prove it . . .
