About the Author
Or Catalina as her friends know her, was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1959, the sixth of eight children, in a traditional Catholic family. Communication in such a large family fueled her desire and need to find a voice and write. She spent her childhood in Mexico. Her father became an employee of The World Bank in Washington D.C. In the early 1970s at the age of 12 she moved with her entire family to the United States. Catalina was already fluent in Southern English as she had spent one school year in the town of Pineville, Louisiana with her grandparents. There, she won the English award; ironically being the only one who had English as a second language in her class. In the D.C. suburbs, she attended various private Catholic schools and graduated from Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, Maryland in 1977. She attended Montgomery Community College, where she changed majors every semester. She also studied in Lyons, France at the Catholic University for two years. In 1981, due to an impulsive young marriage to a Viking (the Swedish, not the football player kind) Catalina moved to Sweden where she resided for five years and taught at a language school for Swedish, Danish, and Finnish business people. She returned to the USA in the late 1980s where she has been living ever since. She is fluent in Spanish, English, French and Swedish. Maria Catalina Vergara Egan is married and has one son, who together with Taco, their five-pound Chihuahua, make her feel like a full-time mother. Her many hobbies include astrology and other divination tools used in this book. For more information please visit website TheBridgeofDeaths.com

Love can be blinding and by the time the truth shines through, it’s too late to escape.Fame.
Success.Is that too much to ask?All I need is to catch a break. To snag the attention of someone important. Someone who can help make my career everything I want it to be.Joseph was that man. Until the night the lights went out and I left with someone else. Someone who stole my breath and made me want for things I’d never considered before.
I should have known better than to trust a stranger. Especially one of his stature and class. Money means power and power means control.
Over my heart.
My entire life.
My dreams died the moment I agreed to his terms and a new chapter in my life began. I was blinded by my love for him and thought nothing would ever change the way I felt.
Then I uncovered the truth about him. About the kind of man he really was and the secrets he paid good money to keep hidden from everyone.
Now I’m trapped, with no way out.Thank you so much for taking the time to consider my book. If you have questions or would like further information, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
“I don’t get you, Johnathan. You’re still a mystery to me, but I must admit, I like it. I like not knowing what will happen next. It’s exciting.”
Leaning across the table and taking her hands in mine, I kiss each of them and then whisper so only she can hear.
“And I like that the sound of your voice just turned me on. We’re going to need another bottle of wine before I can stand up from the table thanks to your dirty remarks, my love.”
A fierce blush spreads across Amelia’s cheeks, and a giggle escapes her. She covers her mouth, but it’s loud, and a few tables close to us turn in our direction.
“I’m sorry,” she says. “I was just thinking about your little predicament, and I couldn’t help but laugh.”
“Yeah, well,” I start, releasing one hand and reaching under the table. When my hand meets silk, her laugh comes to an abrupt halt. “Two can play at that game.”
The challenge has been laid on the table, and she’s not backing down, uncrossing her legs for me and scooting closer.
“If that’s how you want to play—”
Amelia’s words are interrupted by a camera flash. I knew things were too good to be true. There are three reporters in the lobby taking pictures as Charles attempts to hold them back.
They’ve killed my hard-on, but that also means we can leave now.
