Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Into the summer heat of New York's Spanish Harlem strides Carmen, a chica who is as hot as the sizzling city streets. When she first meets Jose, she falls for him hard.He's not like the gansta types she knows--tipo duros who are tough, who think they are players. But Jose has a quick temper, and he likes to get his own way. And nobody getsin Carmen's way.

When Escamillo rolls into town, everyone takes notice of the Latino Jay-Z--a quadruple-threat singer/rapper/producer/businessman. But he only notices oneperson--Carmen. And Carmen has given up on Jose--he's not going to get her out of her tough neighborhood, el barrio, and into the action. Escamillo will.

But Jose won't let that happen.

Passion, love, and betrayal explode into tragedy in this modern retelling of an enduring love story.
