With a priceless collection at stake...Is everything for the taking? It had taken centuries for Max Bannister's family to acquire their treasures, and now he's been asked to risk his collection as bait for a master criminal. For his own reasons, Max allows a public exhibition, and to protect the family fortune he must rely on the skills of his half brother--a world-class security expert--and his smart and savvy exhibit director, Morgan West. But almost immediately, Morgan comes face-to-face with the mysterious Quinn, Interpol's most wanted thief for the past decade--and a man who makes it very clear he has an eye on the Bannister collection. And if that's not enough, Morgan begins to realize that she's surrounded by secrets and lies, and that someone very close to Max is moving behind the scenes, intent on murder as well as robbery...someone whose ultimate plan threatens to ruin them all.… (mais)

Quickie Review

The first in a set of two, this book sets up the story arc and the relationships well, but the plot seems harried and the characters incomplete.

Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to reading the second book to find out what happens. ( )

It seemed like it would be a straightforward caper novel from the back cover. However, there was a little too much of the author's background as an author of romance novels in this one for me to enjoy it. It wasn't something mentioned on the back or else I would have read a bit before purchasing.

Busty heroine sighing over legendary-but-mysterious, dashingly handsome (and, oh, those flashing green eyes!!) thief who wins her heart by saving her from the really bad robbers and never lets his hands wander whilst manhandling her around...

Blond spitfire who teases handsome head of security mercilessly while secretly melting inside—his for the asking if he would just ask...

...Not quite as billed in the blurb (in my opinion) but not badly written. If you like romances and want them spiced up with a bit of a caper plot, this might be your cup of tea. ( )

I like these people. There's a lot of 'not quite who they're presented to be', but the author doesn't try to fool the reader - we know quickly that there's more to this person, though not what. Wolfe and Storm are great, though it was a little disconcerting to be suddenly diverted from Quinn and Morgan (which was the first part of the book). This is really the first part of a three-volume novel - it doese't quite stand on its own. There's a good story in here but there are way too many loose threads by the end of the book to call it a complete story - Wolfe and Storm are settled but not the bigger story. And being me, I really want to read the original Loveswept version of these stories - she tells us she's modified this into a deeper story than she could tell in a genre romance but I'd like to see the original as well.

Summary from amazon.ca:
With a priceless collection at stake...Is everything for the taking?

It had taken centuries for Max Bannister’s family to acquire their treasures, and now he’s been asked to risk his collection as bait for a master criminal. For his own reasons, Max allows a public exhibition, and to protect the family fortune he must rely on the skills of his half brother--a world-class security expert--and his smart and savvy exhibit director, Morgan West.

But almost immediately, Morgan comes face-to-face with the mysterious Quinn, Interpol’s most wanted thief for the past decade--and a man who makes it very clear he has an eye on the Bannister collection. And if that’s not enough, Morgan begins to realize that she’s surrounded by secrets and lies, and that someone very close to Max is moving behind the scenes, intent on murder as well as robbery...someone whose ultimate plan threatens to ruin them all.

Draussen vor den Fenstern des Penthouse verbarg die Dunkelheit den Nebel, der vom Meer hereingezogen war und nun feucht über der Stadt lag; es war eine ziemlich typische Nacht für San Francisco.
