The Raw Touch
The most simplest form of communication.
For some, the most complex.
Undercover cop, Lucia has more secrets than a rat's nest. She works the beat, works it well, until she infiltrates a gang where she finally finds her place. Jungle justice suits her down to a tee, but the day comes when she has to return to her real life, and brothers in arms suddenly become enemies, as she flounders to find her place in the world once more.
Martinez, a gang boss, one of the most powerful men in the city, has had his eyes on Lucia from the start. His instincts told him she was the rat in his midst, but other, baser, parts of him swayed his judgment. When his brother is sent down thanks to Lucia's testimony, he can think only of revenge.
When a woman who can't stand to be touched has to fight for her life in the bed of a man who can kill her in the blink of an eye, everything, even reality, unravels.
On the run, her past as a cop and footsoldier chasing at her heels, Lucia's safety lies in the hands of the one man who can and will hurt her the most.
Through his raw touch, she has to find a haven where all around her, there is nothing but hell. Can she allow him into the ashes of her life, if it means her survival is at risk?
