A WOMAN WHO’S AS TOUGH AS IT GETS
Compelled to leave the Dallas police force after killing a convicted rapist in a dark alley, tough and sexy Claudia Cruz becomes an operative with Avalon, a clandestine organization of mercenaries who recover stolen art. But her new career choice pits her against the darkly intense FBI agent Vincent DeLuca, who is determined that this time, Avalon is not going to beat out the Feds.
A MAN WHO’S HER MATCH AND MORE
While Claudia seethes about this irritating man who gives as good as he gets, Vincent is discovering there’s a fine line between love and hate. And though Claudia is willing to use their crazy-hot attraction to achieve her goals, she never intended they’d end up in bed together. She’s always lived on the edge and flirted with danger…but this time the worst danger may be to her heart.

The first chapter of this book reminded me a lot of one of my favorite movies, The Thomas Crowne Affair. A beautiful bombshell, who doesn’t have to play by the rules, walks into a crime scene, while the suits just stare tongue tied. The lead female character is just how I like ‘em, confident and speaks her mind! A new favorite term from the book “sex-fu” like kung-fu, but using sex appeal instead–ha ha! I really enjoyed this book and following the “who done it” trail.
