“A charming, action-packed heist.” —Publishers Weekly
Don’t miss this new high-stakes romantic caper series, where they’re planning the art heist of the century—to right the wrongs of the past.
When catching a thief requires becoming one.
Jared Towers has skills. One of them is being able to talk his way out of—or into—anything.
Audrey Abbott has skills, too. Need something hacked and only the best will do? She’s your girl.
They have absolutely nothing in common—except for a driving desire to take care of those who need it the most.
For Jared, that means assembling a team of thieves to steal back what rightfully belongs to the victims of a crime perpetrated by his own father. For Audrey, it means doing whatever she can to make sure her grandma never has to worry again.
And now they have something else in common: the art heist of the century.
It was supposed to be all business. Get in and get out, then move on to the next target. But when Jared finds himself falling for Audrey, artwork isn’t the only thing at risk of being stolen...

Book 3: To Catch a Thief
Steele—a pen name for Shannyn Schroeder (His Dream Role)—kicks off her Counterfeit Capers series with a charming, action-packed heist. Jared "Jay" Towers and his cousin, Mia Benson, plan to atone for the sins of their wealthy fathers, who bilked countless families out of their life savings in a Ponzi scheme before fleeing the country, by playing Robin Hood and giving back everything their fathers stole. Their first move is an art heist, but to pull it off they must gather a ragtag team: Audrey, aka Data, a genius hacker who moonlights at a coffee shop to support her grandmother; Nikki, an expert burglar and adrenaline junkie; and London, an artist who can forge just about anything. As the team pull off their elaborate crime, Jared and Audrey fall in love, sparking hot sex scenes, charming banter—and a huge fight that could both end their budding romance and jeopardize their operation. Steele's storytelling chops are on full view throughout, with an expertly drawn cast of characters—particularly Nikki, who steals every scene she's in—and taut, surprising plotting. The cliffhanger ending may frustrate some, but this fun, fast-paced romance is sure to leave readers wanting more.
