High Desert Heat
Wanda McLaughlin, author
The Heat’s On! An act of kindness to a pregnant teen propels Geri Whittier into the dark world of a notorious Mexican drug lord who's ready to retire in the high desert of Scottsdale, Arizona--if only he could convince Geri to stay away from his daughter. Geri is still reeling from the discovery of her dead husband's gambling and infidelity that left her emotionally shattered and broke. But then she saves Reyna Mendoza from a scary tarantula, meets handsome neighbor, Art Coltrane, and finds a job. Just as things are looking up, Geri's good intentions get in the way of Luis Mendoza's plans for his daughter, and she becomes a target for his revenge.
