Super sexy Detective Gonzalez has been burned by reporters in the past.  Now he has the hot little Miami Start reporter Ms. Rebecca Challenger in his life again.  She has managed to weasel into his latest case, and he can’t help but give into his attraction after spending as much time with her as is necessary.  When she pulls away he is very confused and is ready to give up on women all together.

Rebecca has always been drawn to Rick, since she first met him while covering the police beat.  Now he is the one person who can help (or hinder) her opportunity to move to features.  If she can only keep her hormones in check, as he never appears to be interested in her, and get what she needs for her story.  When she finds out that their attraction is mutual and they act on it, will she confront him when rumors surface or assume they are true?

Will Rick and Rebecca work things out or will Rebecca’s kidnapping by a local serial killer kill more than just their relationship?  Can Rick find her in time?

Miami Steam is a fast paced story right from the beginning.  I enjoyed how Ms. Verlaine was able to intertwine the main characters and their personal pasts, but their previous working interactions.  The chase for the killer is one that has a couple of twists and turns that does not make either character happy but does pull together the story very well.  If you want a little intrigue and a couple of sexy characters be sure to pick up Miami Steam soon.
