Virgin Heat is a cocktail; Angelina Amaro is approaching thirty, a virgin hot for a bartender, whose hands she sees in her Uncle Louie’s home video mixing the drink in Key West. The hands look familiar – they look like the hands of her one true love, Sal from ten years earlier. Angelina secretly leaves New York and her father, Mafia godfather Paul Amaro, to search for Sal in Key West. The problem? Sal betrayed Paul Amaro and sent him to prison for nine years making him number one on the Mafia hit list. Sal has hidden behind plastic surgery and the Witness Protection Program ever since.
So begins another Laurence Shames’ tale with the same wonderfully descriptive writing, funny dialogue and great quirky characters as the other Key West Capers. Will Angelina find her true love? Will Paul Amaro get his revenge? Will Sal escape with his life? And why is Uncle Louie dressing as a woman, his man boobs fitting snuggly in those brassiere cups?
