Cara Connelly's second Save the Date novel proves that opposites do attract . . .
Sexy billionaire Adam LeCroix has a mission: hunt down the sultry spitfire he blames for his troubles, demand her help, and exact revenge while he's at it. Maddie St. Clair will help him . . . or else.
Former prosecutor Maddie damn near nailed Adam for stealing, but the lucky bastard walked. Now, five years later, he's back, arrogant as ever, giving her an ultimatum—work for him to collect the insurance money, or she'll never work again.
Maddie's all about right and wrong. Adam's shades of gray. So when he uncovers the hot body under her hard-ass veneer and she finds he's a thief with a heart, can the law-and-order lawyer and the fast-and-loose felon put their prickly past behind them?
Heists and romance mix in the feisty second Save the Date contemporary (after The Wedding Favor). Political shenanigans prevented federal prosecutor Maddie St. Clair from taking on Adam Le Croix, the self-made billionaire turned art thief. Five years later, someone steals from Adam and his insurance company won't pay out, so he hires Maddie, who's now in private practice. What begins as a mercenary talent acquisition quickly turns into a full-fledged seduction, but Maddie is an abuse survivor who shuns even the sexiest of men. Of course, that just makes her more desirable to Adam, who whisks her away to Italy where his villa, staff, and Mediterranean scenery might accomplish what personal charm can't. It's also where he's housing his biggest secret and planning the heist that might spell the end of their fragile relationship. This battle of the sexes is sensual, zesty, and full of zing, but readers will wish for less reliance on Adam's alpha-know-best arrogance to break through Maddie's barriers.
