What does Dr. Olivia Alvarado - full-time vet and part-time coroner for Port Serenity, Texas - do when she discovers that the man she loves is married? She doesn't often give her heart away, and this time she did it in spades. Talk about being annoyed - big time! How dare the scoundrel sweep her off her feet when he already has a wife. Sheriff C.J. Baker has discovered the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished. Back when he was a narcotics cop, he married Selena to get her away from the clutches of a Columbian drug cartel. His relationship with Selena has always platonic, and now that he's divorced he wants to make amends with Olivia, his fiery-tempered brunette beauty. To complicate - or perhaps facilitate - the situation, Olivia and C.J. are working together on a suspicious death case. And to make matters worse, Selena's brother is trying to drag her back to South America. Sparks are flying between C.J. and Olivia, and life in Port Serenity is never dull, especially when mayhem and romance are involved.
