Only Mia Bartholomew could attend a body mod convention and end up at an illegal street race, running from the boys in blue. So what’s a hot-blooded Latina piercer to do? Jump on the first motorcycle out of there, that’s what. She’s got a career to think about, after all.
Of course, that motorcycle would have to belong to a crazy-cute ex-cop with a broken heart and a burning vendetta. Garrett Long’s former girlfriend was a casualty of his last case. He won’t rest until he punishes her murderer, a drug-running trust-fund kid with the DA in his pocket.
Garrett and Mia try to go their separate ways, but their animalistic attraction simply won’t fade. And the sex? Best. Ever. Though their fiery passion really couldn’t have picked a worse time to flare—Garrett’s target is upping his game, leaving him with a choice. Die for revenge? Or live for Mia?
A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave.

Copyright Regina Cole and Ellora’s Cave Publishing.
She stood by the bottom step, one hand on the railing while the other was planted firmly on the flare of her hip. Her clothes were wrinkled and dusty from the warehouse, her hair was wilder than ever and her green eyes sized him up.
“Please let me out. I’m not interested in another argument with you.”
“I don’t want to fight either,” Garret said matter-of-factly as he took her hand and led her over to the bike. “That’s why it’ll be a lot easier if you just shut up and get on my bike.”
She yanked her hand free of his grip. “I’m fine. I can get back on my own. You have shit to take care of—”
“And part of that shit is you, so come on and let me do this.” Garrett swung his leg over the bike, but Mia flew around and planted her hands on the handlebars before he could roll the machine forward.
“I’m shit now, is that what you’re saying?”
Garret ran his hand over his close-cropped hair in annoyance. “Jesus Christ, Mia, that wasn’t what I meant and you know it. Listen, there’s nothing else we can do tonight. The rest of the guys are going home and they’ll follow up leads tomorrow. So I’m at a loose end, and I’d like to take you back. If you remember, I promised to do that, so I’d really appreciate it if you let me keep my promise.”
She stared at him hard for a moment and he stared right back. Her chest was heaving with temper, her perfect brows narrowed in a scowl. But after a moment, she relented, stepping off and coming around to the side of the bike. “You’d better not be lying to me.”
Garrett cranked the engine as she settled in behind him. “I don’t need to lie to you.”
