When Marie Simco finds out that the money for her research is about to be cut, she’ll do anything to keep her lab funded. Pitted against her former professor in a race to publish on deadline, she finds herself in a desert oasis fighting sabotage, drug lords, natives and her attraction to one very hunky lab tech.
Darren Newbury is ready to follow Marie deep into the New Mexico desert if it will finally get her to acknowledge the connection between them. Determined to help her win the competition against his former employer, he fights to protect their work and break down the barriers around her heart.
This book was like Grey's Anatomy in the desert. All these scientists, more worried about hooking up than the research they are supposed to be doing. And someone is always up to something. The writing is smooth and the story flows well, I'd read eighty pages in before I even realized it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick and cute read. -Jennifer Hart
I liked this book and its story. It was easy to read and fast paced enough to keep me glued to it throughout the book. The storyline was very believable and the characters were easy to identify with. All in all it is a well written good book. -Larry Gray
