- Heat Wave (Twilight Cove Trilogy Book 2)
He hired her to find his long-lost daughter, not to fall in love.
California private investigator Kat Vargas lives a lonely life of danger with a painful past. Desperate for rest and relaxation, she leaves the city lights of Long Beach to house sit in Twilight Cove, a tiny beach town.
Having recently found out about the baby he fathered when he was in high school, Ty Chandler has been eager to find her. After he learns about the P.I. in his neighborhood he hires her to find his now nineteen-year-old daughter.
Kat and Ty join forces to hunt for the girl and begin to fall in love. But Kat knows better than to give her heart away. Her tragic past can't be forgotten.
When she and Ty locate his daughter, Sunny, she's a cynical outcast, living hand-to-mouth, and caring for her baby. They coax her to Twilight Cove, where Kat becomes convinced Sunny is on the run from some kind of trouble.
Can these damaged loners form a family?
