TO CATCH HER MAN (originally published May 2014 in eBook format)
USA TODAY BESTSELLER from the Dangerous Dozen Boxed Set
Truth tries the bond between a reporter and the detective who nearly died for her.
Handsome cop Carlos Ramirez nearly lost his life protecting reporter Sylvia Amenabar after her investigative report went south. Carlos knows Sylvia is a tough nut with lots of relationship issues, but he’s never been one to give up without a fight. Even if Sylvia has a lot of luggage she’s carrying into their new relationship.
Sylvia has never had time for a real relationship. She’s too busy trying to make a name as one of Miami’s top journalists. Besides, she’s seen what can happen when you make bad choices. Her mother had made that kind of mistake with Sylvia’s playboy father. But when her mother warns her that some men can start an itch that no amount of scratching can stop, Sylvia worries that Carlos might just be that itch.
When her latest investigative report threatens to ruin her best friend’s boyfriend and implicates Carlos as well, Sylvia finds she must discover the truth and clear Carlos—or lose the things she holds most dear.
