Kari Strauss crosses from San Diego into Tijuana every week to pick up arts and crafts for her boutique. She’s sweating buckets and carrying illegal cargo when she meets Officer Adam Cortez stationed at the border.

    I loved Caught in the Act! Unexpected gem Jill Sorenson packs readable prose, a streamlined narrative, suspense, and spicy roma

    I was interested more in Maria the illegal the heroine smuggled and Ian, the hero’s best friend, DEA undercover agent and the officer who found Maria raped and beaten four years ago when she tried to come to the US.
