Some call her a killer.

Others call her a hero.

Lexie Olympia calls herself neither. She's getting the job done because she can. A beloved philanthropist by day who's nicknamed Melville's Sweetheart, Lexie has the city wrapped around her little finger. Having been a victim in the past, left behind with the killer still on the loose, Lexie knows what it's like to live with that fear. Instead of biting her nails over it, she takes action. Drug lords, gang leaders, con artists, kidnappers, serial killers, anyone who leaves behind innocent victims are marked on Lexie's list.

When a neighbor leaves a stolen ancient dagger on her doorstep and skips town, Lexie’s left picking up the pieces. The police, a local private investigator, and a gang are all after this artifact and Lexie uses her nighttime persona, Artemis, to get to the bottom of things. Everything is going smoothly until she gets caught.

Review by Holly Roberts:
Simply put…I loved this book. I was hunting for something different and oh momma, this story gave me everything I craved. “In Her Sights” took me on a thrill ride of romance, mystery, and just plain fun.

Lexie is my kind of female. She’s smart, tough, and independent while hiding her secret life behind a sweet socialite persona. Ms. Colins kept me turning the pages, trying to solve the mystery, and wanting more Lexie Olympia.

Then we have Clayton; ex-police officer, haunted by past demons, a hunky heart of gold, and a longing to uncover every secret Lexie hides. He’s falling for the mysterious community sweetheart but sees more than meets the public eye.

I’d like to complain about the limited sex (I’m a smut lover) but I can’t because the story stood on its own and the slow burn was worth the wait. I’m harsh on proper police procedural and only noticed two writer/misconceptions that will most likely be overlooked by the average reader. If you’re a stickler, you’ll roll your eyes, crack a smile, and continue reading this special story.

Batman, meet Lexie Olympia and plan on getting your ass kicked.
