A no-nonsense cop falls for an unlikely suspect in Karen Leabo's tale of hot pursuit and hotter passions.
Gunning for a dream job with the FBI, Detective Michael Taggart will not allow anything to stand in his way—especially not a thief whose lies are as distracting as her legs. Solving a high-profile museum robbery may be the career boost he needs, but the redhead claims no knowledge of the stolen jewelry, even after she’s caught delivering them to a crooked dealer. Having been burned by a beautiful woman before, Michael doesn’t want to believe her. And yet his gut tells him to look deeper.
Wendy Thayer’s week just went from bad to worse. After being framed by a client, she’s drawn the interest of a hard-nosed—and hard-bodied—cop. Under different circumstances, Wendy wouldn’t mind being cuffed by the sexy sergeant. But she’s a personal shopper, not a criminal. With her business and her reputation at stake, she must convince Michael of her innocence. Will he break the case without breaking her heart?

"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.
