When Graciela Merced fumbles a package she’s delivering for her mysterious and sexy boss, Gene Hardy, she finds out he’s more than just a wealthy photographer. Prepared to lose her job, she confronts him…and ends up embroiled in the tricky takedown of a powerful drug cartel pushing cocaine into the heart of New York City.

Marco Valencia is an undercover agent, working against time—and against Gene Hardy—to crack Angel’s Drug Cartel before the story makes it to the press. When Hardy’s luscious Venezuelan messenger literally falls at his feet, he has no idea just how well he’ll get to know the beauty or how difficult it will be to drop her.

Hardened by experience, Gene Hardy takes his undercover work seriously, and charges a hefty price. When Grace makes a careless mistake and hurls him back into the visage of Marco Valencia, he must either fire her, or involve her in a twisted plot that could kill them all.

As the two men battle over their feelings for Graciela—and their attraction to each other—one thing becomes perfectly clear. Grace is much more than just the messenger.


When you read the synopsis above you don’t necessarily realize this is a VERY spicy/steamy book!  So just putting that out there right off the bat, if you prefer tame sex scenes, probably shouldn’t read this book.  But if you like to spice it up a bit then definitely consider this book.  With all that said, I started reading the book and the first chapter was really good…then something happened during chapters 2 and maybe 3, it seemed like something was missing or the story jumped ahead and I wasn’t on the same page.  However, once I got through those two chapters the rest of the book flowed nicely.  There is a great back story/plot that held my attention probably because it was suspenseful!  When I got to some of those aforementioned steamy scenes, it was interesting trying to picture it in my head….should I have even admitted to that?!
