Diamonds are a thief’s best friend…but rubies make for an interesting twist.
Adam and Jess are back and ready for the next heist in Twisted Taste. The target: a legendary diamond-and-ruby necklace, the Red Scarlet.
Professional jewel thief Adam Henry lives by one rule: only steal from bad guys. The Red Scarlet’s wine-mogul owner is one, or so Adam’s been led to believe. He and Jess need to fake it through an engagement party, ID the Red Scarlet’s location and get out. But the plan changes quickly when Adam spots Celeste, his prickly ex and former accomplice.
She’s talented, and she’s got her sights set on the Red Scarlet, too.
As if dealing with Adam’s gorgeous ex isn’t enough, Jess nearly blows their cover with a single misstep. She still has a lot to learn when it comes to being a thief…and, apparently, a girlfriend. Things go from bad to worse when Celeste turns up dead. When Adam orders Jess off the case, she’s determined to stick around…even if their partnership—and relationship—has never been stormier.
Adam’s never fully trusted a partner before, never mind tried to solve a heist-related murder with the woman he loves. Chemistry isn’t the issue for Adam and Jess. But they’ll need to figure out how to transfer it from romance to business if they want to make it out of wine country alive.
