This is the third book in Mia Marlowe's series "Touch of Seduction." In each book one of the main characters has a special gift of touch. When they touch an specific type of item they can either see the past or the future.

In this book our hero Devon has the magic touch but can only see the near future within 12 hours of now. He is an Earl in charge of an estate that is barely keeping in the black. His Gift has helped out at cards more than once. Then his brother brings home from Egypt a soon to be, if she concents, fiance.

Emmaline is a con artist along with her protector "father" Monty. This latest con involving an Egyptian statue is sure to be the big one they have waited for. Until Devon falls for his brother's woman. Worse yet, Emmaline falls for an Earl. How could this scam possibly work when you have to decide between a scam that will pay for your father's desperately needed medical treatment or becoming a mistress to the man you love?

There was a bit of a lull in the middle of the book, swamped in story setup that really wasn't needed in my opinion but once past that the book once again held my interest to the finishing line. A passionate fun read.
