The Learning to Live Again Series, Book 1
Will everything go up in smoke with the desert heat or can they survive with their lives and hearts intact?
For Luce Velazquez, an undercover policewoman, her life is in shambles. Her long time lover left her and an automobile accident that resulted in a child’s death haunts her. She has spent the last year proving herself to Donavon Vargas, a crime boss who demands loyalty and respect. Donavan hires Luce to be the bodyguard for his girlfriend, Beth. That causes Luce to walk a tightrope between attraction for Beth and her ability to perform her job for the police.
Beth Ryan, long time lover of Vargas, knows all his dirty secrets. She and Luce begin an affair that has far-reaching consequences for both of them-when Joe Alverez, a man with a secret, becomes embroiled in the triangle. Love and betrayal become a matter of everyday life.
