Love Thieves Book 1
Maxwell Sauvage was born into a life of privilege…and boredom. As a “security consultant” to the powerful, he enjoys pitting his wits against the most intricate of security systems for business and pleasure.
Anya Swift is a woman with high-class tastes and a high-octane need for adventure. As an operative for International Art and Antiquities Recovery she stays just on the “right” side of the law, while satisfying her desire for the finer things and her thirst for adventure.
When a high tech camera catches Anya taking The Fortunate Buddha from the French Ambassador’s vault, Max is eager to help the provocative thief for his own reasons, not the least of which being that he set the camera. But after one stunning night of passion, Anya disappears. Now Max must find Anya before the Ambassador’s men and claim the thief for his own, but they are running against a clock, danger and deception.
Anya has stolen The Fortunate Buddha to return it to the proper owners. Unfortunately she sees a camera in the vault, one she knew nothing about. Now to replace the Buddha and escape with no one being the wiser. She needed help and that came in the form of Max. He could help her, she just had to fight the strong attraction she felt for him.
“I removed the Buddha from the vault. But I need to return it.” Her smile flickered, a fraction of uncertainty echoing in her words.
“You what?” Why did the words startle him? She’s a thief. I saw her take the manuscript. She’s linked to the disappearance of so many other items. That’s why I planted the flat cam, because it was just the thing to attract her. Score in one shot.
“I’m not going to say it again.” Her sultry little laugh knocked over his objections.
“All right.” He understood. He scouted their surroundings. Despite the number of couples on the dance floor, the music shifted to a slower moody piano piece. Tugging her more firmly against him, he enjoyed the supple feel of her warm softness relaxing into him. “You don’t have to say it again. But if you want my help, I want something in return.”
For a brief moment, he wondered at his words. Why would he challenge her? Wasn’t this what he’d wanted all along? To have her come to him? To seek him out? Here she was…in his arms. And he wanted to make a deal.
“I’m listening.” Her voice, low and husky, shot him through with warmth. Their first regrettable tango in Paris ended when she walked away. He’d blamed her, blamed himself. He’d given her too much power. But this was a chance to explore the passion simmering beneath every word.
