Passion must have its way . . .
When curator Sinead O'Sullivan is charged with stealing a dazzling ruby, the infamous Fire of Autumn, investigator Niall Moore is hired to stop her fleeing and to find the jewel.
Desperate as she is to convince Niall of her innocence, Sinead cannot reveal everything she knows. And the feisty red-head's improbable tale tells him that she is not to be trusted.
Yet it's impossible to ignore the fierce carnal heat between them. Niall, an expert interrogator, uses every trick of the trade - and every weapon in his erotic armoury - to get at the truth. Sinead, a fast learner, counters his every move with one of her own. Thief and thief-taker fight for dominance and there can be only one winner.
But what happens in their red-hot game of cat-and-mouse when criminals chasing the precious jewel come after Sinead . . . and the stakes become deadly?
