Wish upon a Latino Superstar
A romantic comedy set alongside the Mediterranean Sea is a winning combination for Mucho Caliente! Francesa Prescott reminds everyone in this delightful novel that romance is alive and well for women in their thirties. A rich cast of characters entertains and excites as they engage in the exploits of Gemma Talbot and Emilio Caliente, two unlikely lovers who are thrust together by a passion to escape the lives that they have left behind.
From the moment they meet on a flight to Ibiza, their romantic interlude spawns a series of misadventures evoking the scenery and bohemian lifestyle of the renowned island resort. Despite the difference in years, the two compliment each other in ways that often belie their contrasts.

Emilio represents every woman's fantasy, with a personality to match, who renews confidence within Gemma.
