Recovering crown jewels could get the FBI off Cortez Jones’s back, but he needs the help of a DSF researcher who blames his jewel-thief father for destroying her family. Forming an uneasy alliance with Mara Marton, Cort finds her courage and tender heart make him want more than just redemption.
When Mara’s insurance investigator father was accused of conspiring with the Jeweler, the scandal ruined him and led to his death. Now the jewel thief’s son wants her help. Although sharing her research expertise and her father’s files with this sexy ex-con could prove her father’s innocence, how can she trust that Cort doesn’t want the treasure for himself?
Sparks fly as they struggle to trust one another and recover the jewels before they are claimed by a deadly black-market syndicate. But with their lives—and their hearts—on the line, there’s no turning back.
