Skin Game

A beautiful fugitive—wanted dead or alive.
Kyra is a con woman and a particular kind of thief. She steals with a touch, but she only takes one thing: her target’s strongest skill. Which means she can be a fighter, an athlete, a musician, an artist—anything she wants… for a limited time. Heartbroken, she turns her gift toward avenging her father’s murder; with deadly patience, Kyra works her way into casino owner Gerard Serrano’s inner circle. After pulling off the ultimate con, she flees with his money and his pride.

A hit man who never misses the mark.
Reyes has nothing but his work. Pity for Kyra, he’s the best and mercy never sways him once he takes a job. He’s been hired to find out where Kyra hid the cash—and bring her back to face Serrano’s “justice.” Dead will do, if he can’t locate the loot. He’s never failed to complete a contract, but Kyra tempts him with her fierce heat and her outlaw heart. So Reyes has a hell of a choice: forsake his word or kill the woman he might love.


I’ve been lucky enough to take some wonderful vacations since we moved to Mexico. We’ve visited Puebla, Queretaro, Catemaco, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, and of course, I can’t forget the time I spent in a villa in Cozumel.

That trip was wonderfully relaxing, so tranquil and quiet. We had a local chef come in twice a day and cook breakfast and dinner for us; he made lovely food, and it was just so awesome to have him deal with the details. He did all the shopping, brought the groceries in, and prepared them for us. When he was done cooking, he did the dishes, and then left for the day. How awesome is that? We had some super delicious seafood — not surprising since we were on an island — and he made a vegetable dish that was new to me: chayote. Apparently, it’s a type of squash, but it’s more like potatoes in texture, and it’s way tastier than any squash I ever had before. It was totally delicious! Now we’re heading off to Acapulco on Wednesday and I can’t wait.

I’ve made us a reservation at a nice hotel. It’s always challenging to find a place that offers sufficient room for two adults and two kids. I’m not sure who designs most hotel rooms, but two double beds just does not cut it. This time, we got a condo style room with kitchenette and living room sofa beds. That means some separation between the kids and us, which is necessary for a good time. *g*

In my current release, Skin Game, the hero and heroine do a lot of traveling. How do you guys feel about road trip books? If you could drive across the US, what states would you be sure to drive through? What sights have you always wanted to see?
