Overview

From the author of Pleasure U comes the erotic tale of a jewel thief who uses the art of seduction to get what she wants.

After relieving a wealthy young count of his irreplaceable jewels, master thief Olivia is ready to lie back and live the good life for a while. Then the one man she's never forgotten turns up. Paul taught her everything she knows about thieving, as well as more intimate arts. Now he's stolen the gems she herself purloined-and wants more than money in exchange for them. He wants her to pull a heist with him. The mark is a wild heiress whose parties are known to push the limits of all who attend.

But what begins with a heist turns into a lusty game of cat-and-mouse. Olivia is game to play with both cops and robbers-and anyone else who gets in her way. Because if there's one thing Olivia knows how to handle, it's the family jewels?

    This is an interesting character study of two amoral unrepentant thieves who use sex as a weapon

    Jewel thief Olivia is addicted to sex; any male will do when she has the tickle, but especially those she can steal gems from. Jewel thief Paul is addicted to sex; any female will do when he has the tickle of ¿impulse control¿. They know each other intimately, but she has an issue with his sleeping with her sister.<BR/><BR/>Olivia uses sex to rob victims. She loves her life of crime and sex. Paul feels the same way about his. They collide when they both try to steal the same jewels from an aristocrat. She purloins them with her loins and he steals them from her; leading to a challenge to see who can make the other submit to their superiority.<BR/><BR/>This is an interesting character study of two amoral unrepentant thieves who use sex as a weapon. The story line is driven by the rivalry between the lead couple although the climax (pun intended) feels out of place for this libido obsessed dueling duo. Fans who prefer a more ethical relationship in their heated tales need to pass; but those who enjoy something different starring dishonorable antagonists will want to read THE FAMILY JEWELS; as Olivia and Paul have the heart of unprincipled sex thieves.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
