The Blackthorn Detective Agency is well-known in Fort Worth, Texas, as an outfit that can find people who don’t want to be found and uncover the darkest secrets. This comes in useful when Josephine Douglas, their only female detective, is killed while on a case. Her dying wish was for the best detective in the agency, Simon Creed, to find her long-lost half-brother Quinn. Reserved and detached from everyone he knows, Creed agreed because she was the closest thing he had to a friend. He manages to find Quinn in the mountains of Colorado.
Quinn Donahue, however, is actually Josephine’s younger half-sister. The truth had been hidden from everyone, including her, and she agrees to go to Texas to claim her sister’s estate and clear up the misunderstanding. The moment she sees Creed she falls for him. Knowing that they’ll only have something in common as long as her sister’s estate is in the balance, she takes the drastic step of cutting off her hair and dressing like a man in order to stay close to Creed and step into Josephine’s shoes at the agency.
Creed grudgingly accepts Quinn as his trainee, only to discover her secret at the same time he finds out someone is trying to kill him. Even more unexpected for Creed are his feelings for Quinn, and his desire to protect her. They’ll have to work together to find who’s behind it before one – or both of them – is killed.
