"Sometimes giving into the heart's desire can produce passionate results."

Sylvia Amenabar has three fabulous friends. They make time
for each other every week and at the drop of a pin. They
talk about anything and everything that matters to their
hearts and minds. In the previous book, SEX AND THE SOUTH
BEACH CHICAS, Tori surprised the group by getting married,
leaving Sylvia the only one who didn't have a man in her
life. That was okay with Sylvia because for her, all men
Carlos Ramirez almost died protecting Sylvia from gunfire
at the end of the first Chicas story and is released from
the hospital in the beginning of this one. Was it all in
the name of police duty, or is there more to their
relationship than Sylvia will admit to herself?
Carlos is a man with a mountain of patience. He needs that
to deal with Sylvia. As the career reporter she is, she's
been tending to him as domestically as possible, but now
someone has made an accusation that Carlos is a dirty cop
and that he killed the man's brother, a fellow cop, four
years previous. Sylvia's boss asks her to write an
investigative story about the accusation, which gives her
the emotional out she needs in the heart-versus-mind tug-of-
war she plays.
It doesn't help Sylvia that her mother is thinking about
reconnecting with Sylvia's father, the original dog of men.
Sylvia learns that her mother has kept a bit of a secret
from her all these years. Now she doesn't know what to
believe about men. She does know one thing -- guilty or
innocent, Carlos has crawled under her skin. She can't stop
thinking about him.
SOUTH BEACH CHICAS CATCH THEIR MAN is a wonderful story
about four Latina women whose bonds of friendship have no
limit. It should be the dream of all women to have friends
such as these characters. The relationships between the men
and women of this story are passionate and solid.

Four single girls + four sexy men =
Trouble for one confirmed
who just wants to hang with her amigas!
Reporter Sylvia Amenabar loves her vida
loca. Just months ago, she and her three best friends -
- Adriana, Juli, and Tori -- were happily single, hoisting
mojitos at their weekly get-together. Now, everything's
changed. All four women have sexy men in their lives --
and Sylvia's not sure she likes it that way.
since handsome cop Carlos Ramirez took a bullet for Sylvia
after an investigative report went south, she's been
fighting their intensifying attraction. Sure, he's
gorgeous and great in bed -- and nearly died for
her -- but Sylvia has sworn never to let a man be in a
position to break her heart the way her father did by
abandoning her and her mother.
Besides, who has time
for the whole relationship dance? Sylvia's got a
reputation to maintain as Miami's hottest new journalist.
But when her latest assignment threatens to smear
Adriana's boyfriend, Riley, and too-good-to-be-true
Carlos, and her mother is hell-bent on reuniting
with her father, Sylvia finds that life and love and
family aren't things you can control!
