HEAT WAVE
by Jill Marie Landis

Genre: Contemporary Romance

RT Rating

The emotional ties between parents and children form the foundation of this poignant novel. Landis is a master of exploring the emotional content of the human psyche, which makes her books unforgettable.

After being shot on a case gone bad, P.I. Kat Vargas needs some R&R. Former partner Jake Montgomery has just the remedy: Kat can house-sit for him up in Twilight Cove, California.

Ty Chandler left town years ago and successfully built a business in Alaska. His mother's terminal illness brought him home, and following her death,
Ty discovers information that rocks his world: He may be a father. His troubled high school girlfriend was apparently pregnant when she left town.

Ty approaches Kat asking for help. No matter what the cost emotionally,
Ty wants to know if he has a child. Kat warns Ty up front that a happy family reunion may not be in the cards. Her own experiences with love and betrayal have made her gun-shy when it comes to relationships, and getting involved with a client is never a good idea, but the pull between Kat and Ty is stronger than either one thinks.
