Some desires are too dangerous to embrace.

As the owner of a flourishing Latin American crafts boutique, Karina Strauss should be basking in her success. Instead she’s worried about her troubled sister, the girlfriend—and prisoner—of drug lord Carlos Moreno. Kari wants no part of that life, but when she helps a friend cross into the United States illegally, two men on opposite sides of the law take notice: Moreno and Adam Cortez, the handsome border protection officer who lets Kari off the hook. It’s not just Kari’s tantalizing flash of skin that catches Adam’s attention—her drug cartel connections bring back the demons of his past.

Moreno demands that Kari smuggle a package for him in exchange for her sister’s freedom. Adam also gets dangerously close, tempting her to surrender and fulfill her wildest desires. As Kari prepares for the drug run, dark secrets, violent criminals, and deadly consequences lurk around every corner. But concern for her sister drives Kari toward a terrifying act, despite Adam’s warnings, despite her overwhelming fears—and despite the odds against coming out alive.

From the Paperback edition.

All in all I was so happy with this read. The action was never ending, kept the story moving and me on the edge of my seat. The suspense isn’t super mysterious, but the unpredictability of the drug dealers kept me guessing as to where the story would go next.

Reviewed by Rowena on Apr 16 2012

As much as I enjoyed this story, the amount of infractions that both Adam and Ian did in this book where their jobs were concerned, I thought it was unrealistic that they didn't get into more trouble then they actually did but aside from that, this was a delightful read.
