A Serenade to Die For by Janet Fogg and David Jackson
"On the verge of her long-sought career breakthrough, singer Isbel Vargas has just completed the performance of a lifetime when a kidnapper demands a ransom for her father. Thanks to his car theft and antiquities operation, her father will be arrested if she involves the Acapulco police. Who can she turn to?
Isbel's ex-boyfriend, Cane Mullins, is once again south of the border, purportedly tracking down his beloved Camaro, a vintage street rod stolen years before by her father. Cane gets more than he bargains for, though, when he again crosses paths with the exquisite singer. Chased at high speed through the Sierra Madres, the former lovers search for Isbel's father and a priceless sword he has hidden away, the sole surviving Aztec maquahuitl, while sparks fly and passion reignites. But can Isbel trust Cane again...with her heart?"
Wow, this was quite one of those reads that you will not want to put it down because it seems like every page is some kind of adventure, romance, suspense and so many twist and turns that will be going on. Will Isabella and Cane be able to reconnect again after what they had at one time? Will Isabella be able to save her estranged father who has been kidnapped? This story will take on some really interesting characters from Cane [Hurricane], Isabella, Mickey, Benicio, Angie, Escalante, Fernando, Octavio, Alvarez, Tank Top, Marquez to a few other people...some good and some not so good that will keep you reading and turning the pages as the reader ride along to see what will happen next. What was up with Hurricane's name? What was so important about the 'maqualhuit' that this kidnapper wanted so desperately? It will be quite riveting as the story will move from one problem to the next even after this kidnapper is found. Be ready for some violence as well as romance as the story is bought out so well by these authors. In the end will Cane and Isabella finally get their HEA?
