Path of the Jaguar a mystery romance by Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson

Path of the Jaguar is the very first book my sister and I wrote together.  We were on vacation, headed for the Yucatan, when I suddenly got lost in the airport.  My sister soon found me, but the incident sparked a question...what would you do if someone you were traveling with suddenly disappeared?  This became the setting for our mystery/romance Path of the Jaguar.

When Lennea Andrew's traveling companion, Delores, mysteriously vanishes in the bustling Mexico City airport, Lennea has no choice but to trust handsome Joseph Darrigo, who gallantly comes to her aid. The handsome, dark-eyed stranger helps her get through customs and escorts her to Merida, where she is to work with renowned archaeologist Wesley Hern. 

When Lennea finds a large amount of money in a secret compartment in Delores' luggage, she becomes tangled in a web of intrigue. Where did the money come from? And what of the handsome stranger Lennea has come to trust? Is Joseph Darrigo really who he claims to be, or is he, along with Delores, involved in some illegal scheme?

Since then, we have written many novels set in foreign countries, including the Ardis Cole series.  Our works, including our suspenses, The Vanished Lady and Nightmare in Morocco, are suitable for all ages to read, and the loves scenes are sweet rather than steamy.
