Description (Courtesy of Goodreads)
Brilliant art appraiser Alex Northrop’s ex used stolen art to fund his nefarious activities. Now he wants her dead. But it isn’t just herself she’s worried about – if he discovers who she really is, he’ll kill her family.
Professor Henry Chilton is shocked to find a beautiful stranger passed out in his bed, and even more so when she reveals a priceless painting is a forgery – the painting he’d planned to use to fund a woman’s shelter. She’s mysterious and frightened, and he is determined to discover why.
Alex’s knowledge of art is undeniable—just as Henry’s attraction to her is irresistible. But in order to help him recover the real painting, Alex isn’t just risking exposure…she’s risking her life.
I really enjoyed this book! I found myself reading it whenever I had a free moment. The story was filled with unique situations, interesting characters, suspense and a tender love story. Key plot points were very well developed and rolled out at just the right pace to keep the tension high without moving too slowly and boring the reader. Alex is damaged but no typical victim. She hasn’t lost her tough edge and her intellect keeps her a step ahead of her ex. She’s got a talent like few others and is completely confident in her abilities which I found highly appealing. Henry appears every bit the English gentleman to the extent that it never occurs to Alex that his Navy time was anything other than mundane. Villains don’t come much more despicable than Luc and his thugs. Nicola and Simon are also very interesting and their subplot is well woven into the main story. All the pieces of this story weave together in a very believable way. I highly recommend this book to lovers of any genre.
