By day, Erica Hardin is a barista at Brewed Moon, a trendy downtown St. John's cafe, but by night, she is one of the city's most sought-after burlesque dancers. She craves more adventure and excitement in her somewhat dull, coffee-pouring life, and she gets all that and more when Peter Swanson walks into Brewed Moon. Unknown to Erica, Peter is a detective, part of a special team trained to fight the scourge of organized crime. When he and his team have suspicions of mobsters associating in the Brewed Moon, they spring into action, investigating the cafe and everyone who works there. In Peter and his sinfully-good looks, Erica sees the element of danger she's been craving. Peter however, can't look past her luscious curves and wily red-lipped smile, and he's willing to sacrifice everything he holds dear to get close to her. Despite the circumstances, neither Erica nor Peter can escape the instant attraction they feel, and before they know it, their steamy, forbidden affair is embroiled in a sinister plot perpetrated by Irish mob kingpin, Dylan O'Connell. Soon Erica finds herself in more danger than she anticipated, and she must rely on her own wits to survive, while Peter has to stop O'Connell before he makes his evil plans a reality.
