Las Vegas embalmer Lily Sanborn’s vacation at the remote retreat in Belize should have been heaven...if her idea of heaven was a gazillion degrees, humidity, and enough mosquitos to require daily transfusions. Just as she decides to make the best of her tropical destination, she stumbles upon a murder, witnesses a kidnapping and meets the most attractive man she’s ever seen.
Dr. Cooper Deforest is seriously attracted to this stunning woman with a razor-sharp tongue. In fact, he is having the damnedest time trying to keep his hands off Lily. But when murder, kidnapping, a drug cartel and police corruption intrude on his peaceful jungle world, Cooper wonders just what sort of person Lily is.
Even though their chemistry sizzles, Lily’s trust issues get in the way. As much as Cooper wants this woman, he can’t get over the fact that wherever Lily goes, death seems to follow...

Deadly Trouble excerpt

She started to relax just as a pair of parrots began to squabble. Green and red feathers flew, and their high-pitched screeches caught everyone’s and everything’s attention. Why couldn’t Frankie have booked a lodge on a quiet, white, sandy beach? With a huff, Lily snatched a palm-sized piece of pineapple from her plate and pitched it at the obnoxious birds. All the birds scattered.
“You know,” a deep voice—unmistakably American—said from behind her. “The clay-colored robins will stay and sing you a pretty song if you feed them the fruit rather than pelting them on the head.” A devilishly handsome man, skin darkened from the sun and clad in a white-linen shirt and khaki shorts, approached.
“I was aiming for the parrots. Anyway, who said I wanted them to sing?” She kept her expression blank as she peered up into his hooded, blue eyes. Instantly attraction sizzled through her. Without a doubt, her body betrayed her effort to be indifferent as her breathing grew rapid and her traitorous tongue moistened her lips.
“I take it you’re not a birder.” Amusement laced his words.
She struggled to focus on the conversation, growing more annoyed with herself by each passing second. “No. The only bird I like is one roasted on my dinner plate.”
He unleashed a million-dollar smile.
Inwardly, Lily groaned—he even had perfectly straight, white teeth and dimples. This guy oozed sexy and had “flirt” stamped on his tan, wide forehead. Then and there she decided he was probably a little more than she wanted to deal with. It would be like going fishing and catching a marlin. You’re going to want to keep it, polish it with oil, stare at it constantly, unable to believe your good luck, and place it on the trailer wall to show off to all your friends, but in retrospect, you’re going to realize you really just needed a Red Snapper: something less time consuming and pretty good in the fish tacos department.
