eBook Description: What do you do with a 'wife' who is more than you can handle? When the FBI and local law enforcement team up for a mutually beneficial crime-stopping partnership, Rookie Agent Chris Tarpington and Detective Vin Pilk team up to prototype the new alliance. How better to bust a ring of drug dealing suburban house wives than to go undercover-way undercover, as a married couple? Though Chris reluctantly gets in touch with his feminine side, he quickly finds ways of making his sexy partner squirm. And Vin is definitely squirming, but will he run away from his faux wife, or right into 'her' arms? One thing is for sure: as the investigation heats up, 'inter-agency cooperation' will take on a whole new meaning...

"Don't forget to tuck 'em, sweetheart." Agent Jennings slapped Chris Tarpington's shoulder. "God, I love fresh rookie meat."
Chris tried to smile good-naturedly, but really, he wanted to storm out of the sector office and slam things.
"What are you complaining about? Your first op and you get to go undercover with the local police farce," Mathis shouted after Chris, not even trying to cover his booming laughter.
"Swing your hips, Tarp. Hold your chest out," Jennings coached.
I'm going to fucking annihilate this case, Chris thought. No fucking way would he be humiliated on his first big assignment by dressing in drag. The detective assigned with him would have to take that honor. He smiled in grim determination.
Clutching the case file in a white knuckled grip, he stalked through the office to the public area and the conference room where his new partner waited. Some of the desk jockeys snortled as he walked by. He shot them each personally designed death glares.
"You're the big guy now, aren't you, Tarp?" one of them mocked as he passed. "Or is that big gal?"
"Don't get your panties in a bunch," another of Chris' old co-workers quipped. "Those big girl panties can bind."
By the time he got the conference room, his shoulders felt tight. God, what a nightmare. Chris steeled himself with a deep breath and brushed the blond strands obscuring one eye off his forehead.
He almost snorted. Detective Vincent Pilk didn't know it yet, but the tables were gonna turn. Detective Pilk would be wearing the dress through this op, and Chris would let him think it was an honor to do it. With a new plan firmly lined up, he swept into the conference room to tell Pilk how things were going to be.
"Aw, shit!" Plans crashed into a heap and spontaneously burst into flame. This? This was Detective Vincent Pilk? A man whose name inspired visions of protruding Adam's apple, knobby knees and sailor suits? "Damn it! You're a fucking bull."
Broad shoulders, dark curling hair and a tight ass turned slowly with a demeanor of being inconvenienced. Pale blue eyes zeroed in on Chris with laser intensity as mocking dark brows rose in arrogance. Full, chiseled lips quirked upward higher on one side than the other. All together, he looked to be patiently waiting out Chris' perusal, taking his initial assessment in stride.
There was no way on God's green Earth a man with the shoulder span and arm circumference of Vincent Pilk could put on a dress. A wide chest narrowed to lean hips and runner's legs. And two hundred twenty or forty pounds of red-blooded American linebacker physique swallowed Chris' five foot, eleven height, and slammed it down with another six inches, easy.
"How the hell do you detect anything without being spotted?" Chris wondered aloud. He circled the Detective, shaking his head. "You'd make one fugly woman."
Pilk folded his arms across his chest, looking more immovable by the second as his smile disappeared. Amusement still twinkled in the blue eyes set in the olive complexion of pure Italian heritage, complete with high cheekbones, square jaw and what looked like a permanent five o'clock shadow. A pale scar curled from the side of his bottom lip toward the point of his chin and stopped just shy of a barely noticeable cleft. Chris would have to be an idiot to force the dress issue.
"Is this a set-up?" Chris laughed suddenly, realizing the sector guys had pulled a good one on him. "It's a fucking set-up. Shit, for a minute there, I thought you were my ops partner. I mean, shit, what were they thinking, right? I could just see you tottering around in red heels and talking about your latest casserole recipes."
Tears streamed from the corner of Chris' eyes. He slapped his hip and peeled in another round of laugher.
"Oh, God, this is amazing!" Chris wiped his eyes and shook his head to show he was duly impressed. "You're amazing. I mean, God, look at you. A gigantic bodyguard with attitude is just what I need in a fucking wife. Damn, I sure as hell wouldn't fuck you in a dress, Vincent."
The breath slammed out of his body. Chris' feet dangled off the floor and two meaty fists wadded his shirt as the wall pressed unforgivingly against his shoulders and head. "What the fuck?" he gasped.
Pilk's stony face, and inch from Chris' nose, snarled. "You're a foulmouthed asshole who talks too much. You're careless and stupid and you will never, ever, ever call me Vincent again."
Chris' eyes widened. "Sure, okay," he gasped.
"My name is Vin, are we clear, rookie?"
"Clear." Chris' voice came out strained and wispy. "Can I come down now?"
"You boys done yet?" The gruff voice of Chris' sector head barked somewhere beyond them.
"Yep. Done," Chris agreed.
Vin smirked, dropped Chris to his feet, and tousled his hair. Chris wheezed, trying to catch his breath. Both men turned toward the room at large where the sector head stood shoulder to shoulder with the police chief. Neither looked pleased, although Chris suspected it was a glint of barely concealed amusement that glittered in the chief's eyes.
"This is serious business and we don't have time to whip out a tape measure for your dicks." The police chief tossed a manila file on the table and it slid several inches toward them.
Chris reached out and snatched it up first. The room felt like every bad covert ops movie ever created with stern faced department heads as a united front on one side of the table and the mismatched duo of investigators on the other.
"Why Feds?" Vin asked his chief.
Flipping through the file, Chris pretended that the answer didn't matter. Didn't want to acknowledge it was a good question. Especially given the case parameters of going undercover as a married couple. Another excellent question "the meat" could have asked--why not a woman Fed?
"Interdepartmental relations. The DEA is involved too, just not in the op. We've been asked to facilitate a new way of approaching crime involving multiple departments in a manner more amicable than historical cases," the sector head explained. "No more jurisdiction arguments, only shared resources and shared discovery."
Chris snorted. "Yeah, that'll work." He felt the regard of the others on him, but continued flipping through the file until his eyes caught on the surveillance photos of soccer moms and women juggling kids or weeding in their gardens. How the hell did they expect him to fit into the community in drag?
"You see, genius," Chris said, addressing Vin. "My question would have been, why the fuck are you having two men go in undercover as a married duo? There are women better suited to this work."
"Are you declining your first mission?" his sector head asked.
"No sir. I'm declining the robust masonry of my so-called partner. Give me a jenny and I'll have this case cracked in no time. Vin here will just fuck up my stats. This is a fluff case."
"It's a test op to see how we work together," the sector head corrected.
Vin wrapped a beefy arm around Chris' shoulders. "Aw look. Our first family spat."
"Fuck off, meat locker."
