Body Heat

Department 6 Trilogy, Book 2

Twelve people have been shot at point-blank range and left to rot in the desert sun. It’s Sophia St. Claire’s job to do something about it. She’s Bordertown, Arizona’s new chief of police—and she’s out of her depth.

Help arrives in the form of Department 6 hired gun Roderick Guerrero. As far as Sophia’s concerned, his involvement only makes things worse. Maybe he’s managed to turn his life around. And maybe he’s a good investigator. But as the bastard son of a wealthy local rancher, he has a history he can’t get past. A history that includes her.

Rod refuses to leave town until the killer is caught. He’s not worried about the danger posed by some vigilante. It’s Sophia who threatens him. Because he’s used to risking his life—but his heart is another story.

Praise

"Body Heat is a fast-paced, enjoyable read. Novak provides plot twists and turns galore, so the reader isn’t really sure until the closing pages who’s responsible for killing the illegals or who’s out to ruin Sophia’s job and reputation. The plethora of minor characters — all well developed — will keep you guessing to the end. If you’re a fan of romantic suspense, this story set in the hot Southwest will satisfy."
