US Marshal Alexander Girard often mixes business with pleasure. What better way to get what he needs than to have a little fun while doing so? And, what he needs from his beautiful, sassy neighbor is information that will help him bring down a notorious mobster. What he wants from her, however, will likely land him a slap to the face and a kick to the groin. But no matter how much he craves her, he won't be deterred. He will gain her trust and get her to share the memories she has no idea is valuable to the government. When he does finally succeed at his mission, he's going to do what he always does...disappear.

Chess Montgomery has a wonderful life. She runs a successful business (she can afford her half of the rent), has a great roommate (who refuses to do the dishes), and goes on plenty of dates (none to write home about). And to top it off, her gorgeous new neighbor, Alex, is finally showing interest. So what if her father abandoned her the night of her high-school graduation and her ex-fiance followed suit the night he proposed? The honest, fun-loving, attentive Alex is nothing like them. He's a keeper. So, why does she start to feel like he's hiding something?

I don't really get what you mean here?
                              Is the desk clerk supposed to be watching them or what?
                              Or is he more interested in his magazine than them?

Congrats congrats ...this episode is just terrific. I can't go on reading your story now, but will do as soon as I can.

There is a space after the punctuation. I'm not sure why you can't see it. And in fiction, you single-space, not double-space after punctuation. Feel free to point out what you think is incorrect.

This line definitely packs a punch. Don’t forget an end quote here (:
