Gold Coast (Paperback)
Ahen he died, Florida mob boss Frank DiCilia left his gorgeous widow, Karen, everything, but with strings attached. If she ever gets involved with another man, she loses the millions, the cars, and the palatial Gold Coast mansion. A crazy cowboy-wannabe thug named Roland, who's acting as Frank's eyes beyond the grave, is making sure Karen doesn't dally, with serious muscle if necessary. But now Cal Maguire's come into the picture. A sexy, street-smart Detroit ex-con, Cal's got a line and a scam for every occasion. And he's got the perfect plan for getting Karen DiCilia her money and her freedom . . . if it doesn't get them both killed first.
