Alex’s knowledge of art is undeniable – just as Henry’s attraction to her is irresistible. But, in order to help him recover the real painting, Alex isn’t just risking exposure…she’s risking her life.
This novel starts with a rapid race of wits and courage, then continues to exhilarate until the last page!
Alex has a shady past, but love can make a sane person do crazy things. While on the lam form her ex-lover, she suffers the consequences of her actions through the detriment of others. Fortunately for her, she stumbles across a handsome professor whose own past becomes essential to her survival.
I loved this book! There are several characters in which I became attached. Simon, Henry’s brother has a realistic approach when it comes to Alex. Although he’s somewhat brash at times, he’s got an intriguing backstory of his own. Henry is open-minded, articulate, and an absolute gentleman. He follows his instincts when it comes to Alex, which proves advantageous. Both men are simply delicious, as the author has a way of forming the perfect image, and both are completely different.
The story unfolds beautifully, never faltering, and the love scenes were very rewarding. The villains were a necessary evil that I loved hating, and the plot was thrilling.
Intelligent, exciting, and sexy! Recommend!
