eBook Description: Master Electrician Rose Norris is wiring a new hotel on a Florida beach when a lethal, high voltage accident takes her down. Her friend Jimmy revives her with CPR, but she quickly discovers his friendship might be deadlier than the accident-which wasn't an accident at all. Jimmy's dark secret has brought gangsters from Miami seeking retribution for his transgressions in their world. Rose's friendship with Jimmy forces her to play their game, but the mobsters find that tough, resourceful Rose doesn't make a good pawn. Sexy construction boss Ryan Vernon becomes Rose's partner, and they must fight their way through a series of complex lies to a place where friends are suspects and enemies are ... well, so attractive that Rose forgets 'crossed wires' are big trouble. Although Ryan stands by her side, exotic Leandro, the man with the face of an angel and the soul of a killer, may steal her heart.

"An enticing, fresh voice. Lee Roland knows how to capture your heart."--Kelley St. John, National Readers Choice Award Winner
"I don't want to be a problem," Rose said. "The jerk back there, his name is Grift. He's a mean one. I told you, if they don't want me here--"
"Screw them. I want you." He glanced at her. "Here, I want you here."
Rose laughed, slow and soft.
Ryan knew he'd lied to her and himself. He wanted her. He'd met her two hours ago and he wanted her in his bed and in his life.
The white doublewide trailer that served as the construction office stood a hundred yards from the gate. When he parked, he unsnapped his seat belt, leaned over, caught her chin in his fingers and kissed her. Not with passion, but in sudden surrender to an overpowering desire to taste that soft mouth.
He released her, leaned back, then couldn't meet her eyes. Great! Now what did he do? "God, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to ..."
"That's okay." Rose's voice sounded a bit shaky. "Moving a little too fast. That's all."
"Too fast." Ryan grinned with relief. "Ah ... could you give me a timetable or something? So I won't get ahead of you again."
She smiled, her eyes bright with amusement. "Well, Mr. Vernon, let's start with a couple of beers and conversation. Get to know each other. Then, we talk about a date. How's that?"
Ryan couldn't believe it. He'd just negotiated a possible relationship. Mr. Vernon. She'd reminded him that he had come into her world a stranger.
"Sounds good to me."
