Take Me For a Ride
A stolen necklace, a hidden family treasure and the Russian mob collide in a sizzling-hot romance from the "witty, irresistible" imagination of Karen Kendall . . .
Art restorer Natalie Rosen is a true romantic, inspired by the world's great art and literature. But nothing stirs her emotions like the legendary St. George necklace, which once belonged to Catherine the Great. The priceless heirloom was seized by the Nazis from Nat's family in Old Russia, never to be seen again. When against all odds, the necklace turns up in her office for repairs before auction, it vanishes, along with the impulsive Natalie.
Hard-living recovery agent Eric McDougal is no gentleman, but then he's never advertised himself as one. McDougal thrives on chasing women—and stolen art. Now he gets a dream assignment to do both, and thinks it'll be a cinch. But he doesn't count on his high-octane attraction to Natalie, or that she'll unwittingly lead them both into a dangerous underworld where falling in love—and staying alive—are part of the game.
