Keziah, aka the Kitty Cat Burglar, has left her childhood life of crime far behind. Or so she thinks, until someone who knows her former identity begins sending threatening notes. She's blackmailed into making one more robbery.
Gavin Piscin, Australian leopard shapeshifter, must recover the stolen Leopard's Paw diamond in order to assure the fertility of his people.
Their trails cross in the Natural History Museum, both after the same gem. There's a double-cross, guns fired... and Keziah, Gavin, and the Leopard's Paw end up in the same room, waiting to make a break for the exits.
I, too, would have a hard time saying no to a hot, naked, Aussie man, yet... It felt a little unbelievable that they'd be spilling their life stories and getting it on, standing up (and nobody needs to grab anything for balance?) while somebody with a gun might be right outside the door.
I did like in the end that Keziah took charge of the burglary situation, instead of caving in and doing it the way The Man wanted - and her ideas worked out well for both of them. But it felt a little too short and undeveloped, and too much backstory rather than action crammed in. 3.5 stars
