Samantha "Sam" Jellicoe used to be one of the best cat buglers in the world. In fact, Sam had been a pro before she even reached the age of ten. (Thanks, Dad.) Then, one year ago, Sam dropped through the skylight of wealthy Richard Addison. Samantha saved Richard's life, but she had been trying to rob him at the time. To be with Richard, Samantha had to retire for being a professional thief and begin a new career.
It has been nine months since Sam began her security consulting and installation business, Jellicoe Security. Joseph Viscanti, with the museum, offers Sam the job of tracking down some Japanese armor. Sam takes the job for a few different reasons; the main one is for the adrenalin rush she'd get. On the side, Sam deals with another theft. This robbery was very recent. Someone has stolen a neutral-gender anatomical dummy from the elementary school. It is not the type of job Samantha would normally accept, but Sam could not tell Olivia (the girl who asked her for help) no.
As for Sam's rich Brit boyfriend, Richard, he is building up the courage to propose to Sam. Seems that the life of a former thief is not so dull after all.
***** Author Suzanne Enoch has done a masterful job with Sam and Richard. A few months ago these two characters were in a half-novel length tale (Twice the Temptation). The two were entertaining in that story, but in this one they absolutely ROCK! (Perhaps because it is full-length and the author could add more into the characters. I do not know.) The author actually seems to breathe life into all of the characters in this book. They seemed vivid and REAL! Consider yourselves warned in advance that once you open the cover to this book, you will not want to stop. Absolutely sinful. I loved it! *****
