About this title

Synopsis:

Azalea Twilight wrote some pretty torrid romances -- but that hardly seemed a reason to murder her. But Claire Molloy finds that Twilight's romances contained as much fact as fiction, and perhaps hold the clue to her killer's identity!

From the Back Cover:

Professor of Passion, the smutty new romance from Mildred Twiler--a.k.a. Azalea Twilight--isn't the kind of book Claire Malloy likes to hock at her bookstore, but Claire agrees to host a book party for her friend's trashy tale. As torrid as the novel is, it's nothing compared to the evening. After the party, poor Mildred is found dead in her home--strangled with a tightly knotted silk scarf. Now it's up to Claire to find Mildred's killer, and it won't be easy--the two-bit author had offended nearly every faculty member she worked with at nearby Faber College. But who could have hated Mildred with such smoldering passion?
