Natalie Rosen is in a bit of a bind. She's an accidental jewelry thief. When she first sees the legendary St. George necklace, she immediately knows it was the one her grandma had always talked about and in a fit of temporary insanity, she swipes it from the repairs office she works at and takes the necklace to her grandmother.

What she never even thought about is that her grandma would be adamant in not giving it back to Nat so then everyone, including her boss, would think she stole it.

Based on the blurb and cover, I expected a darker romantic suspense. That isn't what I got. Despite being lighter than I expected, it started out fairly well. Unfortunately it quickly went downhill.

Most of my issues stemmed from the fact that Natalie is completely too stupid to live. She had absolutely no common sense. Right from the beginning I was scratching my head at her antics. The way she refused to go to the police and blindly trusted a stranger she met in a bar was just the beginning of

Karen Kendall writes a male heroine like no other, always sexy, always believable. The 3rd book in this series is no difference and he is the ultimate bad boy. Plus I liked that this book was the darkest of the three, with references back to WWII and Nazi's and of course, good old fashioned art theft. A great summer read!

This is one of those books you simply can't put down once you stated it. It has everything a book needs to have an attractive plot, mistery, romance, erotica and action. It is like a movie, a thriller that keeps you glued until the end.
The recovery of a stolen jewell is the trace the story follows... is not an ordinary jewell.... I won't say more, just read it

This was a fun book to read -- lots of laugh-out-loud dialogue between h/h. Plenty of suspense set in a storyline involving a stolen Russian necklace.
