Deputy Marshal Rafael Grant has heard of meeting someone and seeing stars, but this is ridiculous. How did he end up on the ground bleeding all over the place when he just went to the airport to pick up his sister? His first meeting with Kate wasn’t the most orthodox, but he can’t complain, she is the first woman he’s been interested in since moving to Arizona.
As Kate and Rafe explore their feelings for one another, strange things are afoot at the Matthew’s household. Kate’s father’s notes and computer are stolen, and Kate receives a ransom note for their return. Whom can they trust? It’s a race against time to find the notes or finish the research before someone unethical does it first.
Janice Sims does a phenomenal job pulling the reader into the culture and setting of Arizona. Her attention to details made me feel like I was actually under a desert sky, and wish I was eating some of the dishes Kate’s mom prepared! This was my first novel from BET books, and I’m sure it won’t be my last.
