Author Zara West

Genre Romantic Thriller

Publisher The Wild Rose Press

Book Blurb

Born poor and raised on the streets, celebrated bridge builder and billionaire, Mic Vargas is knee-deep in the construction of a trouble-plagued bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey. He really can't afford to take in a stray thief and fall in love with her. But when a beautiful, snappy-tongued, illegal immigrant literally drops at his feet, he becomes consumed with saving her and her family from poverty.

Cat burglar, Lena Correr stopped trusting anyone long ago. Not even a rich, handsome billionaire with good intentions can break through her defenses. At least, not until an East Coast crime boss threatens her family and forces her to steal for him. Mic vows to help her and her family escape the hell they are in. But will the man Lena is coming to love succeed, or will he end up dead at the hands of an old enemy?


Lena inhaled through the soft fuzz of the scarf. It smelled deliciously clean, almost like the sheets in Mr. Rich Guy’s townhouse.

What was it about the guy? Two quick encounters and she couldn’t get him out of her head. Sure, with his sharp, dark features, he was attractive in an exotic way. But he wasn’t swoon-worthy material. He certainly didn’t have the build of a one of those heroes on the covers of the romance novels that she ogled on the drugstore racks. In fact, she didn’t think he was much taller than her own five foot five.

Nice lips though. Kissable lips. Full on the bottom with a slight upturn at the corners.

She gave herself a hard shake. Imagining kissable lips on a rich bastard who probably thought her a disgusting crook meant she was either a first-class idiot or having a brain freeze. A gust a wind buffeted her. Right now, she’d vote for the brain freeze. Cielos, it was cold enough to freeze a heck of a lot more than her brain. She wiggled her fingers in the thin gloves and hurried up the street.

But she couldn’t stop thinking about Leather Jacket. Probably had a rich papa and a gilt inheritance. Tomorrow, she’d go to the library with the boys, and while they read in the children’s section, she’d use the computer there to look up Mircea Vargas.
