Love Thieves Book 2
Some would kill to know what Sophie Kingston knows. Rich and powerful people will do anything to possess the secret, but not even Sophie realizes how much danger she is in—or how far they will go to hunt her down and take it from her. But when she sees a murder no one can prove, the threats to her life keep coming.
Pietr Sauvage is neck deep in the hunt for The Fortunate Buddha when a lead draws him to New York and thrusts him into the life of art history specialist Sophie. What began as a favor turns into a desperate need to protect the sexy curator from the dark web of deception threatening to pull her under.
Too Many Thieves…
Lost in the shadow of intrigue and danger, Sophie must learn to trust Pietr, a man with an agenda, a man she can’t help but desire, before the ruthless thieves steal their only chance.
Raising the stakes heightens the attraction…
As the quest for the Fortunate Buddha continues, Pietr finds himself in NY, following a lead. He has sworn he will never fall like his cousin Max, little does he know there is a fiesty Art History specialist about to rock his world.
When you have a bad day, you never expect it to get worse once you get home. Unfortunately Sophie’s did. To start her day she witnessed a murder but no one believes her. Of course there’s no body and no evidence of foul play anywhere. Then she arrives home to find a strange man (Pietr) in her living room. After a delightful (to the reader) conversation, she kicks him out but not before he gives her his card. but thinks better of it and as he requested agrees to meet him for a drink. Selecting a close place she is comfortable in. Getting shot at there, followed immediately by a reported breakin at her apartment causes Pietr to get even more concerned and protective. This is one my favorite scenes after Lady Katherine has interrupted their 4 AM breakfast.
“What can I say? You make me want to be a bad boy. Shall I let you spank me?”
Heat speared her at the offer. She’d not let her hands drift down to where his shirt tucked into his pants, but now since he’d conjured the image, she wanted to.
“Sophie?” His voice deepened, his accent lilting the soft syllables of her name. The smile eased away from his lips, his expression sobering. “Lady Katherine and I are not now, nor have we ever, been lovers. I promise.”
Sophie stared silently, her heart popping at her ribs. Heat pooled in her stomach. He was a damn good-looking man, a fact he seemed well aware of. Charm practically swirled in the air around him. She’d liked holding him, too.
Pietr watched her, the embers of amusement dying in his eyes. “I am sorry if I offended you.” Utter sincerity coated each word, and Sophie tilted her head, considering.
“You know what I want?” She slid forward a step. Pietr went completely still, the playful schoolboy replaced by a very real, very desirable, and very gorgeous man. Sophie tipped her head back, letting some of the heat seep into her gaze. “Do you know what I really, really want?” she whispered.
“Yes?” He angled his head toward her, his gaze dropping from her eyes to her lips.
“Food.” Sophie winked and all but flounced to her chair.
“Et tu brute.” Pietr laughed. “Et tu.”
Treasure Me (Love Thieves #2) (Kindle Locations 830-857). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.
All this is somehow related to her PhD. thesis research. To her it doesn’t make sense, but it does to Pietr and who ever else is looking for the Buddha.
A fun, suspenseful, keep you on your toes read. With a hot Frenchman that won’t stop trying to seduce his sexy museum worker.
