The first three books in the Vasquez and James series gathered into a single volume.
When badass meets artist, sparks and bullets fly. Blazing romance, chilling suspense, enduring love...
*Loving Luki Vasquez: Renowned but reclusive weaver Sonny Bly James masters color, texture, and shape in his tapestries, but when he meets Luki Vasquez, an ex-ATF agent and all-around badass, his heart and desire spin out of control. The heat between them won’t be denied. United by danger, can Sonny and Luki put fear and anger aside, and fight together to save Sonny’s nephew and their own lives?
*Delsyn’s Blues: Devastated by loss, Sonny James listens to a voice singing the blues from beyond the grave. Convinced he’s failed in an all-important life task, he tries to shut out Luki Vasquez and love just when he needs him the most. But when Luki finally breaks through Sonny’s fortress of grief, it’s just in time for the newly reunited couple to face a new, violent, escalating danger.
*Finding Jackie: When Sonny James asked Luki Vasquez to marry him, Luki’s “yes” was accompanied by a request -- a wedding in Hawaii. Months and many trials later, their hilltop island ceremony is poignant and funny, and every bit as beautiful as they’d hoped. The honeymoon is all sex, surfing, and sunshine… until Luki’s sixteen-year-old nephew is kidnapped by a sadistic killer. When it all comes to an ultimate showdown with evil, it’s not only love at stake, but their lives.

I am so in love with these 2 beautiful men. 5 heart pounding beautifully written stars. Better than the 1st installment. You learn so much more about these 2 men in book 2.
Luki a wonderfully beautiful insecure man who loves Sonny with his whole being. And smokes way to much!
On Delsyn's Blues 1st edition: Sonny a heart broken artist who lost his nephew Delsyn to an unspeakable crime, Pushes the man he loves away basically to grieve it’s all he knows to do. But Luki strong and determined will not let Sonny do this alone. He is an amazing man. And together they have to deal with so many ups and downs twists and turns to make it through the events following this tragedy.
Their love is beautiful and true and makes me smile! I did hate the Richard aspect and Sonny even considering it grr, that whole scenario tore me apart.
I can’t wait until the next book. Sonny to Luki….. What are YOU looking at?
On Finding Jackie 1st edition: This book is part of a series that needs to be read in order, with the titles Loving Luki Vasquez, followed by Delsyn’s Blues, having come prior.
Yay! It is so exciting to have Sonny and Luki back. I’m happy to acknowledge that I have been in love with both of them ever since reading the first 2 pages of “Loving Luki Vasquez.” An apropos title in many respects. Both characters are very well drawn, charismatic, compelling, and are portrayed in equal depth. Sonny definitely does not get short shrift simply because Luki is a badass law man and investigator. The reader is treated to significant character growth as both men adjust to life as a couple, and recognize the essential need to measure their individual desires and actions against how it will affect their relationship.
As the story opens, Sonny and Luki are enjoying their wedding in Hawaii....
