Ryland Fletcher is the investigator determined to catch her. As he tracks Claire and gets to know her he finds there are more questions than answers. He doesn’t trust the beautiful thief in his bed but it doesn’t stop him from wanting her. The risk is life or death but the rewards are too great to resist.

  • “I’d burn the whole world down to protect you.”


  • “I think I was yours from the moment I laid eyes on you.”


  • “You are everything to me.


  • At the end of the day, it was all about love and trust, and the two were inexplicably intertwined.


  • It was true. She did love him, but the need to fulfill her final promise to her granda pulled at her something fierce. 


Excerpt 1

“You didn’t lie to him. You have chosen him over what you thought was your path. You’re willing to change and give up a lot for him. I see the Clarion Necklace as the final piece and kind of a closing homage to your granda. You once told me it was the piece that had eluded him again and again. Fletch will understand. Don’t get me wrong; there may be groveling and cock sucking involved but, hey, a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.”


“If all I have to do is grovel and suck his dick, I’m down for that,” Claire said, managing to grin at her. She wasn’t at all sure that Mia was right. She hoped she was, but she couldn’t be sure. 


The train was late when it arrived in Calais. They barely managed to exit the station and get a cab for the docks. Once there, they hurried to Jules’ boat.


“I was worried for a minute you weren’t going to make it,” said Jules as he helped them aboard.


“The train was late, but here we are. We’ll put our stuff away and stay below until you let us know we’re clear. Thanks again for your help.”


“It is always my pleasure.”


Once they were below, they stowed their gear and then got comfortable on the two berths. They heard Jules start the engine and untie the boat as the great rope lines hit the deck before being coiled. Slowly the boat pulled away from the dock, and they were on their way.


“I always breathe easier once we clear French waters,” said Mia.


“You know it never occurred to me—who has jurisdiction over the Channel?”


“Depends on where you are in the Channel. Some of it belongs to the French and some to the English. But there are parts that are separated by international water.”


“That must be a nightmare to tease out when there’s money to be recouped. Money always makes things trickier.”


“Sometimes it isn’t money that ups the ante, so to speak,” said a decidedly male voice without a trace of a French accent. “If the person or entity being apprehended has a string of crimes that can be attributed to them, the authorities want credit for shutting them down.”


“Ho… how did you find us?” stuttered Claire.


“Carter has gotten very adept at hunting Mia down. Why don’t you come up on deck? It’s a lovely evening.”


“I can’t believe Jules betrayed us,” said Mia.


“For what it’s worth, he didn’t do it for money or for notoriety. He is, after all, French; he did it for love and romance. Once he knew Claire was mine and was just confused about her loyalties, he was only too happy to help. 


Excerpt 2

Looking at her was physically painful. He loved her so much and she seemed to be unable to make the choice he needed her to make. Was he going to lose her to this obsession she had? An obsession that only she and those to whom she gave over the pieces of stolen jewelry would ever know or care about.


Claire stopped at the doorway and turned back towards him. “How can you say that to me? How can you issue an ultimatum and think I won’t tell you to go fuck yourself?”


So that was her response. Not only wouldn’t she give up her Don Quixote-like quest, but she would also turn on him.


“Because I don’t know any other way to get through to you.”


“You know how much I loved my granda. You know what the Clarion meant to him and why I am determined to see this through. Can’t you just turn your back and let me finish?”


He really had hoped to avoid this confrontation standing in the middle of the cottage’s front lawn, in front of his team, but she seemed determined to have it out with him.


“Do I mean anything to you?” he asked. “Was any of it real? Or was I just a means to an end?”


She jerked her head back as if he’d physically struck her. He wanted to go forward, fold her in his arms, and tell her they’d find a way, but they were at a crossroads and Claire needed to decide which way she wanted to go.


“How can you say that to me? One minute you tell me you love me and the next you’re telling me I have to choose? Why is it me? Why can’t you be the one to choose between me and forcing me not to do something that you know is important to me?”

“Because I’m not the one breaking the law. I am on the right side of this, you aren’t.”


“Do you have any idea how much I love you? Do you know I’ve never said that to any man before? How can you not know how important you are to me?”


The instinct to soothe her fears was so strong. He needed her to be strong enough to choose him.


“If I’m that important to you, you’ll abandon this deadly mission of yours.”


She recoiled from him and turned back to the cottage. “I want you and your men off my property tonight.


Excerpt 3

He always lifted her up as if she weighed nothing. To a woman who had been chided about her weight by those fashionable women she had once envied, the ease with which he moved her around was like a heady aphrodisiac that she never wanted to tire of. 


Gently he set her down on her feet, rendering her naked as if he had been doing it for a very long time. Nothing was unfastened with his hands that wasn’t followed by his lips, tongue or teeth. He nibbled, licked and sucked his way along her skin, ensuring she was always keenly aware of their connection.


Claire knew he was trying to forge a connection between them that she was unwilling to break. She didn’t want to break it, but she did wonder how much room there might be within those parameters to do what she felt she needed to do.


“You are so beautiful. I can’t believe you’re mine. You do understand that, right?”


“I understand, but does that make you mine, as well?”


“I think I was yours from the moment I laid eyes on you.”
