After a convoluted setup, romance master Palmer settles into her sizzling story about drug smuggling in Texas. Central to the tale is tiny, unpretentious Gloryanne Barnes, a formidable prosecutor in the San Antonio district attorney's office whose bum hip, twice broken in childhood, has left her disabled. A major drug czar whom Glory put away is using his worldwide connections to plot a hit on her. After a bullet whizzes by her ear, she's sent to work as a canner at a small organic farm to keep her out of harm's way—a move that turns out to be unexpectedly fraught with danger and romance. Taciturn farm manager Rodrigo Ramirez is more than he appears to be, as is Glory, undercover as a "little country hick." It takes a tragedy for the two proud individuals to learn trust, as both are swept up in violence and passion. (June)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
