Catch up with the Dempseys as one couple celebrates a wedding and another struggles to take the next step. Eli and Alexandra managed to survive the secrets, lies, and downright craziness of Chicago election season and have found their hearts-and-shamrocks happily ever after ... or have they?

This takes place after the end of Playing with Fire, but before that book’s epilogue, and contains spoilers for the previous Hot in Chicago stories.

P.S. Graphic sexytimes ahead and only available as a PDF.
