Publisher's summary

Which is more powerful: romance or revenge?

Mafia princess Angelina Amaro has only ever loved one man - and even that lone affair was never consummated. Why not? Because her would-be lover, Sal Martucci, fled into the Witness Protection Program after ratting out Big Paul, Angelina's father. Not a great way to begin life with the in-laws....

But when Sal is discovered, a decade later, working as a bartender in Key West, the wildly dysfunctional Amaro clan heads south - one member with love on her mind, the others with murder in their hearts. With an improbable team of allies - Aunt Rose and Uncle Louie and the relentlessly romantic and flamboyant Michael-Angelina sets out to quench her passion before Daddy quenches Sal. And before you can say Romeo and Juliet, the Southernmost City becomes the setting for a touching and hilarious tale of love, the Mob, underdogs rising, bad guys redeemed, and, oh, some incidental cross-dressing.

A hilarious masterpiece

My mother-in-law resided in an old folks home with a book trading table. Imagine my surprise when while browsing the books in this home I saw a book called "Virgin Heat.' I couldn't resist taking it to see what the old folks were reading. My second surprise came when I discovered that it was fascinating, exciting, and often so laugh-out-loud funny that my stomach hurt. I had just discovered a fantastic author I'd never heard of before. Since then I've read over a dozen of his books and loved them all. Highly recommended. And the narrator, Jem Matzan, is excellent, one of the best Audible narrators I've ever heard.
