Cold, withdrawn Border Patrol agent Rafael Contretas was attracted to Krista MacLaren from the first moment he saw her. Ah, and therein begins the trouble - Rafael is working with the DEA agent to bring down Art MacLaren. Mexicans were good enough to work for him but not for his daughter to associate with.
There were many reasons not to get involved with her. She came from money, she was from New York and played with the rich and famous. He loved the desert and he had no intentions of ever leaving it. He craved solitude, he had no use for a treacherous, beautiful blonde, blue-eyed woman. Rafe had been betrayed once and his family suffered for that betrayal.
But Abby, being a forward, positive woman [actually a little hussy] was bent on getting what she wanted. No man would turn her down. And she wanted Rafe.
