Lisbeth Chance, Author Walker & Company $15.95 (190p) ISBN 978-0-8027-0909-7
Donovan, a free-wheeling helicopter pilot-for-hire whose territory is Bajathe Mexican peninsula below Californiaencounters a handful of trouble when an intriguing girl suddenly appears just as he is taking off from a wealthy island estate, and begs him to take her along. Anna, granddaughter of the recently deceased patron, has overheard Octavio, her powerful, ruthless fiance, discuss the details of an illegal-alien smuggling operation that resulted in the gruesome deaths of hopeful emigrants. She is now fleeing for her life. At first Donovan wants nothing to do with this exasperating, yet alluring woman, but an unfriendly visit from Octavio's vicious henchmen convinces him that he is Anna's only hope. And as the two are thrown together, their initial animosity slowly develops into passion, one that could prove fatal for them both. Chance displays adequate skill with her narration, but the story is far too short to allow for either satisfying plot or character development. (July 21)
