The Dragon Key
There was a time when Marisol Villarreal believed life had a way of making sure she was in the right place at the right time. After ten years of struggling to build a relationship with her estranged father, the twenty-seven year old no longer believes in fate, or much else for that matter. When her father announces he is moving back to Mexico and plans to take her with him, everything changes. She packs up her shattered life and relocates to the last place she remembers being happy, California.
It is here that she finds herself entangled with a man by the name of Go Joon-suh. He's aloof, cryptic and somehow oddly familiar. As time goes on and their fascination for each other blossoms, Marisol finds herself drawn into Joon's world; a world of hidden identities, conspiracies and old family secrets.
"You aren't hurting people are you?" she asked so quietly he barely heard her.
Joon whirled around to look into her eyes, praying to see the truth behind what he was about to ask her. "You think I would do that?"
Brought together by destiny, the pair team up to uncover the true identity of Son-saeng-nim, the leader of a notorious local gang. Torn apart, their need for each other grows. In the end, Marisol and Joon must decide the ultimate price they are willing to pay to be together.
