Julio Navarro is secretly regarded as the quintessential killer for hire when he is given the sanction on an equally dangerous female assassin. Killing was never personal for Julio, until now when he can't resist falling in love with the intended victim, Ziv Yadin, Mossad's top assassin. Julio rejects the Mossad mandate, and both Julio and Ziv are sanctioned with a death warrant, which would be a chilling undertaking for any killer since Julio and Ziv are the two most dangerous assassins on the planet.
Their love affair is soon tested when Julio's former lover, Claudia Bazán, sends Julio a message "if you ever loved me, prove it now." Claudia faces immanent death in Culiacán at the hands of her boyfriend, Pedro Valdez, Mexico's most fearsome drug lord.
Julio travels to Culiacán, the most dangerous city in Mexico, to save a woman he no longer cares for. Soon Ziv follows to rescue the man she can no longer live without.
The idea for the novel originated from the 1995 film, Desperado, written, produced and directed by Robert Rodriguez with film stars Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek.
Setting: New York City, Madrid, La Coruña, U.S. - Mexico Border, Culiacán, and Mazatlán.

Oh, those women! Independent, unwavering, cold-deadly, unremorseful and drop-dead gorgeous. Then there's Julio Navarro, the world's most dangerous assassin, so perilously predictable that to know his true identity is tantamount to ceasing all life's functions. In addition to Julio's secret identity, there is the little known fact that he exited a Buenos Aires orphanage when he was eight-years old to live on the streets with a cur dog... or that he was once the third world-ranked middleweight boxing contender. Julio is now a successful businessman with untold wealth derived from settling international problems in steel-cold blood. Yet, Julio has a tender side with heartbreaking weakness for the innocent, the disadvantaged and the downtrodden. Seriously, it would be scary to kick beach sand into the face of those women or in fact, any character in the novel Dangerous and Desirable.
