This is an excellent piece of erotica writing. A perfect case of judging a book by the cover, and the description in the back. Looking at the cover and reading the back, I thought I was picking up a mystery/thriller. Wow, was I wrong! The first three fourths of the book or more is all very descriptive erotic sex between the hero and heroine. The action thriller part is only three chapters long if even that. So if you want a good mystery, stay away from this one, those three chapters were also pr ...more

Grabbed this at my library and thought I'd just read a few pages to check it out. Next thing I know I'm done. It was a great story of finding love and an art thief.

Damien Black is the son of a convicted art thief and found the life fit him perfectly as well. Although now he's retired, someone's offered him a lot of money to come out of retirement and help him out on a big $ job. While wandering around a museum one day he spots a beautiful woman, Angel Lafonte, and cannot take his eyes off her. H

This was a great novel, romance and suspense together is always good..It was definitely a page turner and a very good one, I loved Damien and Angel's characters, and the way the author kept you wondering throughout the book. Although it didn't leave you hanging, it left you wondering will there be a sequel....:-))
Wow this book had it all. Mystery, suspense, and hot hot sex scenes. I'm so glad I came across this little gem while looking through Ms. Byrd's books. This book had so many surprises, and had me thinking on my toes, and shocked by the turn of events at times. Ms. Byrd had yet to disappointment me and I'd love to read a sequel featuring the Black's!

This was a very intriguing love story about the mysterious Damien Black and Ms. Angel LaFonte! It had loads of suspense as ex-cop Broche from France thought he was onto the infamous art thief, better known as the LaFantome. Hold on tight as while this couple have you weaving in and out of this spectacular story. Hell, it made me want Damien for myself! Awesome job, Ms. Byrd as always!!!!!
