Sacrifice of Passion

She ripped his heart apart…

Vic Vargas planned to marry Delaney West, but when she suddenly left town—and him—behind, she turned from the love of his life to the woman who’d torn his world apart.  Now, twelve years later, she’s back, and the walls protecting his heart are crumbling.


He betrayed her trust…

The night she and Vic were supposed to meet at the Chain Tree and elope still haunts Delaney.  He left her there, at the mercy of someone else.  Coming home to San Julio was supposed to help keep her sleepwalking at bay. Instead, it’s opened up old wounds, and put her in the path of the so-called legendary monster tormenting San Julio.


Now time is running out… 

With a killer on the loose, will Vic and Delaney learn to trust each other again, or do the roots of betrayal run too deep?
