Recruited, Book 4, Tender Mysteries Series
Liza’s accused of stealing fifteen hundred dollars from her employer.
Antonio seems to be the only person who can help her out of the mess she’s in.
June, 1896: Liza’s not sure she can trust the handsome private investigator she needs to help her, but she decides to work with Antonio anyway.
Antonio believes Liza is as guilty as the prosecutor says she is, but, having been instantly smitten with the beautiful woman, he wants more than anything to find a way to get her acquitted of the charges against her.
He devises a plan to prove Liza’s innocence by trying to connect the missing money to a ring of pickpockets who have been operating in eastern Nebraska. Despite the fact that he has every intention of running his investigation on his own, Liza, trusting her life to no one but herself, doggedly stays at his side.
Caught up in the adventure of dealing with pickpockets, train robbers and desperados, Liza is swept into romance as well, and, before long, she realizes she’s found something special with Antonio she hadn’t even known she’d been seeking.
