Sample text:

Sofia Perez mopped her brow and looked out a across the sunbaked flats of the Marisma de Hinojos. Heat rose in waves from the parched earth, shimmering in the summer sun. Sunburned workers chipped away at the baked mud, excavating the canals that ringed the site. The scrape of digging tools on hard earth, and snatches of conversation, drifted across the arid landscape. It was hard to believe the transformation this drought-ridden salt marsh outside of Cadiz, Spain had undergone since early spring. Considering the level of funding their primary donor provide, progress was not just expected, but demanded.

“It’s hot as Satan’s butt crack out here.” Patrick fanned himself with his straw pith helmet. His fair skin was not holding up well under the Spanish sun. In fact, his entire body glowed almost as red as his hair beneath a thick layer of sunscreen. “I don’t know how you handle it.”

“I’m from Miami. This is nothing.” That wasn’t entirely true. She kept going to her backpack for the can of spray-on sunblock to protect her olive skin. She hated sunburns—the itching, the way her clothing rubbed raw in all the wrong places. It was something she avoided at all costs. She noticed the way the corners of Patrick’s mouth twitched and raised an eyebrow. “So, are you going to stand there trying not to smile, or are you going to tell me what’s up?”

“You’re needed in my section.” He stopped fanning. “We think we’ve found the entrance to the temple.”

Now it was her turn to keep her emotions in check.

“No vendas la piel del oso antes de cazarlo,” she said under her breath.

“What’s that?”
