About this ebook

A romantic suspense short story…

Intrepid investigative journalist Eve Reynolds has a passion for justice that often puts her in danger. When she agrees to travel to Phoenix to investigate a drug gang known as the Desert Diablos, she becomes a target. Good thing she has a guardian angel.

DEA undercover agent Nico Johnson is no angel. He’s definitely human, and his weakness for Eve proves it. She’s tough and capable, but he’s watched from afar to make sure she’s safe. The woman has a reckless streak that would have her running headlong into a raging storm to save a stranger. This time, his gut is telling him she’s in more danger than she can handle.

The ruthless Desert Diablos will do anything necessary to take out a threat to their drug-running organization. Nico’s used to fighting threats like them. What he can’t fight is his growing desire for Eve. Despite his good intentions, he can’t resist her. After all, everything’s hotter in the desert.
