Description

HelenKay Dimon delivers the third book in her Games People Play series featuring the strong women of the Jane Doe Network and the hot, wealthy men willing to risk it all...


They say it takes a thief to catch a thief, and Harrison Tate is proof. Once a professional burglar, he now makes a lawful living tracking down stolen art. No one needs to know about his secret sideline, "liberating" artifacts acquired through underhanded methods. At least until one of those jobs sees him walking in on a murder.



Gabrielle Wright has long been estranged from her wealthy family, but she didn't kill her sister. Trouble is, the only person who can prove it is the sexy, elusive criminal who shouldn't have been at the island estate on that terrible night. She's not expecting honor among thieves-or for their mutual attraction to spark into an intense inferno of desire.



Under the guise of evaluating her family's art, Harris comes back to the estate hoping to clear Gabby's name. But returning to the scene of the crime has never been riskier, with their hearts and lives on the line.

Review quote

"Dimon has become a go-to author for romantic suspense, with fresh plots, out-of-the-box characters, and romance to root for. Imaginative, emotional, action-packed, and artfully crafted." -- Kirkus Reviews ""A perfect example of [Dimon's] ability to deliver sensually charged, adrenaline-laced tales that will have romance readers on the edge of the seat." -- Booklist "Riveting action, a twisty plot, and strong character development make Dimon's fast-paced romance a winner" -- Publishers Weekly

About Helenkay Dimon

Helenkay Dimon spent the years before becoming a romance author as a . . . divorce attorney. Not the usual transition, she knows. Good news is she now writes full time and is much happier. She has sold over thirty novels, novellas, and shorts to numerous publishers. Her nationally bestselling and award-winning books have been showcased in numerous venues, and her books have twice been named "Red-Hot Reads" and excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine. But if you ask her, she'll tell you the best part of the job is never having to wear pantyhose again.
