Glad you asked.
Xavier & Vic
The Missing Partner
By Liza O’Connor
Cases to be Resolved:
The ‘New Woman’ Who Lost Her Old Mind
The Lost Servant of Dante’s Hell
The Disappearance of a Very Important Man
The Abduction of Sneaky Snake by a Grand Elephant
The Cat Who Wore Too Much
Most alarming, she befriends and hires a dangerous criminal as an employee of Xavier Thorn’s Private Inquiries--without Xavier’s permission.
Vic sighed. “If I can.”
Her answer infuriated him. “What the hell does that mean?”
She matched his glare with a scowl of her own. “It means just what I said. If I can afford to wait, I will. However, if some young parlor maid is two hours from death, I am not waiting two weeks for you to return and intercede.”
“Take Davy. Yes, I will.”
“And your gun!”
“That goes without saying. I’ll take my knife, as well, if you like.”
Evidently, Vic’s intuition told her this case was more than a fired servant. “Call up Davy.”
He huffed at her challenge. “My God! I’ve been gone for a mere month and you think you can challenge every command from my mouth. You do not need to know why. Just call him up!”
Vic glared at him and stormed from the room.
By the time he had finished dressing, she returned with his trusted driver in tow. Upon sight of his boss, the man rushed forward and crushed him in a powerful hug.
Xavier struggled to escape his grip. Why couldn’t he have normal employees? “Davy, stop before you break bones.”
Releasing him, his driver stood back. “Sorry, sir. I’m just so glad to see you.” His brow furrowed as he stared at his employer’s face. “That’s just a disguise, I hope.”
“No, I caught my nose in a meat grinder and am now forced to live in the streets because my true love cannot bear the sight of me.”
Vic laughed. “Can’t fault her there.”
Davy nodded in agreement. “Me either.”
“A fine set of friends you two are! If I ever do lose my looks, I’ll remember not to expect a happy welcome home from either of you. In fact, I’ll fire you both and hire blind people in your stead.”
Davy frowned. “I don’t think a blind driver will work out very well.”
“I’ll sit beside him and call out directions. As long as he follows my instructions to the letter, he’ll be fine.”

The Missing Partner
Liza O’Connor was born, raised badly, left the South/Midwest and wandered off to find nicer people on the east coast…and employment. There she worked for the meanest man on Wall Street, while her psychotic husband tried to kill her three times. (So much for finding nicer people.) Then one day she declared enough, got a better job, divorced her husband, and fell in love with her new life where people behaved normally. All those bad behaviors has given her lots of fodder for her humorous romances. Please buy these books, because otherwise, she’ll become grumpy and write troubled novels instead. And given her past, they will likely traumatize you.
