Get A DESPERADO anytime of the year

I live in Arizona, near the Mexican border, and stories of the border patrol abound in the area. Political issues aside, there is a human angle to the drama unfurling in this part of the US. There are evil people with no regard for human life, and there are victims. I see it every day. So how do you make a romantic novella out of all this violence? I like challenges, and kick-butt girls with guns. This is a story about hope.

Not just another busy night on the Arizona border.

Rookie Border Patrol Agent Kaitlin Harrington hates Christmas and all men, since her lover jilted her and she lost her unborn child on Christmas Eve. This year, as she guards the Mexican border in southern Arizona, she encounters more than she can handle. No amount of training prepared her to arrest the gorgeous desperado who challenges her. His name is Miguel, a human smuggler fascinated by the green eyes of the feisty auburn-haired beauty bent on impeding his important work. But Miguel is a man of many secrets. And on this dangerous adventure through the Arizona desert, anything can and will happen.

"A Desperado for Christmas is a love story and an adventure rolled in to one. There is very little "down time" in this fast-paced story, and this reader was glued to it until the very end." Fallen Angel Reviews

"...The reader can really empathize with her character on many levels. Ms. Schartz also does a fantastic job of setting you right in the scene with her characters. She builds the suspense and follows through with vigor, sweeping her readers up in the action." Coffee Time Romance

"Vijaya Schartz always manages to produce stories that are a spectacular blend of romance and action and this one is no exception." Debbie - CK2S Kwips & Kritiques

"...a romantic adventure from beginning to end. Brimming with twists, secret identities and danger on every page, this is a page turner that will entertain any reader. I will be interested in checking out additional titles by this author." Katherine - Joyfully Reviewed

"Exciting and action packed, this story will keep you reading page after page. The characters of Miguel and Kaitlin are superb. Bravo to Ms. Schartz on a story well written and one I will be reading again." Liadan - CTR
