After fleeing crumbling, volatile Venezuela, Yola Palacio wants nothing more than to settle into a peaceful new life in Trinidad with her family. And who cares if they're there illegally, aren't most of the people on the island? But when Yola's Aunt Celia dies, the family once again find their lives turned upside down. For Celia had been keeping a very big secret-- she owed a LOT of money to a local criminal called Ugly. And without the funds to pay him off, Ugly has the entire family do his bidding until Celia's debt is settled. To say that the year that follows is tumultuous for the Palacios is an understatement. But in the midst of the turmoil appears Roman, Ugly's distractingly gorgeous right-hand man. And although she knows it's terrible and quite possibly dangerous, Yola just can't help but give in to the attraction."--Amazon.
