Overview

He'd vowed to capture the pretty thief, but would she steal his heart instead?

Detective Sergeant Michael Taggart watched as the woman passed the stolen Art Deco gems to a fence whose record was as long as her legs—and then quickly arrested her for robbing the museum! Wendy Thayer struggled in his cuffs, insisting she'd only been doing errands for an elderly client. Could this feisty redhead with the kissable mouth be as innocent as she claimed, or would her secret be enough to shatter his dreams?

In a delightful tale of passionate pursuit and irresistible intrigue, Karen Leabo sends two unlikely lovers chasing after the truth—and on a journey to discover their own unspoken longings. She wanted him to see her as she truly was, but could a tough guy on a mission be hero enough to cherish a woman with a shadowy past?

"I can't offer you any promises," Michael said. "As soon as I'm accepted at the Bureau, I'll be shipping out to Quantico for training, then to Washington."

Wendy thrust her chin out in a gesture he was becoming very familiar with. "I'm not looking for a long-term relationship," she said. "But I'm scared and feeling all alone, and you're real and warm and solid, and I just . . . I just need you tonight. Stay here with me. One night."

One night. A promise of eight or ten or twelve hours of incredible delight. "And then we both walk away?"

"Do we have any other choice?"

"No." But maybe, he thought, if he indulged every fantasy he'd had about Wendy--and he'd entertained plenty--he could get over his fixation on her.

"Make up your mind," she said, crossing her arms. "I don't make this sort of offer every day."

Ah, hell, he already knew what his answer was. "You drive a hard bargain, lady," he said, reaching for her.
