SHE KNOWS HOW TO STEAL A KISS.
Alex Harland, Earl of Melton and dedicated rake, never pictured himself as an agent of inquiry. But the thrill of investigation is a challenge he now embraces. When he’s asked to pursue the Nightjar, a notorious thief who is reclaiming France’s crown jewels, the case throws him into the path of the beautiful and equally elusive Emmy Danvers, reminding him of the only puzzle he’s never solved: the identity of the mysterious woman who once stole a kiss from him—and left him wanting so much more…
WILL HE SURRENDER HIS HEART?
The daughter of a thief, Emmy learned long ago how to keep her secrets safeguarded—and, as the notorious Nightjar, her love for Alex Harland is one of them. With the determined earl hot on her trail—and making her hot under the collar—Emmy has no choice but to keep her distance. But when a moment’s danger threatens Emmy’s life as well as her name, will Alex finally discover that he’s followed every clue…to true love?
“Full of intense emotions and dramatic twists….Future installments will be eagerly anticipated by Regency readers.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) on This Earl of Mine
In Bateman's sparkling second Bow Street Bachelors Regency (after This Earl of Mine) an elusive thief falls for the investigator seeking her arrest. Emmy Danvers comes from a long line of French jewel thieves but has been content to live a crime-free life in the four years since her father, the notorious Nightjar, died.

Emmy reluctantly takes up her father's mantel as the Nightjar, hatching a plan to recover the crown jewels of France from the British Museum. Alex Harland, Earl of Melton, works as an agent of inquiry after returning from battle in the continent and is determined to capture the Nightjar. But when his investigation leads him to Emmy, she steals his heart, forcing Alex to decide if he is willing to implicate the woman he loves. Bateman loads her fast-paced heist with fun secret identity hijinks, clever characters, and sizzling romance. Series fans and new readers alike will be thrilled.
