Nikki Johnson was the perfect wife to millionaire real estate tycoon Duncan Johnson until discovering his mistress and love child. Stressed out by her husband's infidelity, her teenage son's carelessness, and her son's pregnant girlfriend moving in, Nikki has had enough. When Duncan cannot get in touch with his upset wife, he uncovers evidence that makes him suspicious of a secret affair going on between Nikki and her ex-husband, Chance Brown, and wonders if she is the culprit behind a death threat he receives.
Chance, a successful attorney, is just as skeptical when his once spiteful ex-wife comes back into the picture, remarried, claiming to still be in love with him. During a private getaway to Las Vegas, Nikki's bitter side re-emerges as they reminisce on their past relationship, how he has neglected their son since the divorce, and why he cheated on her with a close family friend. His suspicions are confirmed when Nikki lures him into a death trap, but why?
With a dangerous love triangle and a mother out for revenge, Darling Nikki is a cunningly crafted thriller sure to keep readers guessing until the very end.
