Security consultant Rachel Anderson has three big problems.

1. The priceless gem she's providing security for has disappeared.

2. If anyone looks into her background, they'll discover she was once a thief.

3. The person who has the gem knows exactly who she is....

Because he's the man who raised her -- and trained her to be a cunning thief. She'd fled and made a new life for herself, determined to use her unique skills for good. But to retrieve the stolen gem and keep everything she's fought for, she's got to turn the tables and prove the student is now the master....

About the Author

A Minnesota native, Michele Hauf lives in a Minneapolis suburb with her family. She enjoys being a stay-at-home mom with a son and a daughter. Michele writes the kind of stories she loves to read, filled with romance, fantasy, adventure and always set in France. Though she has yet to leave the U.S., since her family knows that, once gone, she might set up house in a little French village and never return! Always a storyteller, she began to write in the early 90s and hasn't stopped since. Playing guitar, hunting backyard butterflies and coloring (yes, coloring) keep her creativity honed. Research for her Silhouette Bombshell novels has yet to see her stealing jewels or racing cars on a high-speed chase, but...she can pick a lock or bake a mean chocolate cheesecake (with a file inside) if duty calls

One year ago Rachel Blu fled France to escape from her mentor Christian who raised her to be a master thief. She relocated in the American Midwest using her thieving skills to become a security consultant. Her current assignment, keeping a priceless gem safe, will make her reputation. However, the impossible has occurred and the gem is stolen and she knows who the thief is because only her former mentor could have pulled off such an impossible theft. Rachel knows that if she fails to recover the gem she will be the prime suspect especially when her previous occupation surfaces. She also concludes she needs help from a specialist when she begins her quest to regain the stolen gem. Thus she goes to friend and thief Jason Marland not knowing that turning to him in her hour of need will prove even more complex to her heart than stealing back the gem. --- This intriguing romantic suspense will grip readers with its cat and mouse contest between the teacher and the student. Rachel is a terrific protagonist who chose the right side of the law over the morality of her instructor. Jason is her perfect foil as she grants to herself that she loves him but also detests him due to his profession. Christian steals the show though his appearances are comparatively brief as he is not evil yet stealing is in his blood except when he suffers the severe head pains. Michele Hauf provides a fun thriller as it takes a thief to catch a thief. --- Harriet Klausner

Michele Hauf has written another winner. Once a Thief will keep you turning the pages just to discover what happens next. It is filled with action and danger. The heroine will touch your heart and make you want to hurt the villian in the most painful manner you can think of. I highly recommend reading this bombshell.
