Olivia Stewart is a jewel thief. She has always found the wealthy fascinating. A mysterious man caught her eye one summer when she was a teenager. When the mystery man reveals himself and his trade to Olivia, she is hooked on the adrenaline rush of sex with strangers and stealing their prized jewels.
Paul Breakness taught Olivia everything she knows about sex and the thievery game. She left him four years ago. In order to get her attention and help, he steals a young count’s jewels out from under her nose. It is going to take more than money for Olivia to get them back.
Olivia loves men and everything to do with men. This comes in handy in her profession. With the money she earns from the sales of the gems, she is able to care for herself and her sister, Lee. When the count’s family jewels are stolen from under her nose, a note left in their place has Olivia looking for the man who stole her heart. When Olivia discovers her sister, Lee, has become involved in this world, the game changes.
This is a book which is overflowing with adventure and action as well as hot, steamy sex. There is a bit of humor to be found in the way Paul gets Olivia’s attention. Olivia is quite the promiscuous gal as she willingly hops from one victim’s bed to another. There is a little bit of erotica for every taste in this story. From male/female to female/female to any combination of the two, everything is covered. Ms. Hart writes a tale sure to cause your heart to race.
