Isabella Cale has been in hiding; certain she is better off without a husband who would use her to further his criminal career. She has worked hard to build a reputable business selling fabulous imitation jewelry. Isa has not stepped a foot out of line since the night ten years ago when her husband substituted her stunning forgeries for the royal Dutch diamonds.
Victor Cale will never give up looking for the lying wife that left him to take the fall for her theft of the Dutch royal jewels. Not only does he want to find Isa, he wants to know why she betrayed him. When his work as an investigator for Manton's Investigations leads him to Isabella's very door, Victor cannot believe fate is so accommodating.
Isa is both terrified and thrilled to see Victor after all this time. So many lies litter their past, but she cannot deny how much she has secretly missed him. When the two lovers finally begin to dig for truth, both discover a common adversary that wants nothing more than to continue ruthlessly pulling their strings.
Although the second in a series, readers will not feel lost while enjoying this quirky story. It has a fast paced plot that will hook you in and keep you turning pages. Isabella is a witty woman with far more smarts than her dashing hero. This one is well worth picking up.
