TheHeist_MED“You are perceptive.” She traced his jaw line with a finger.

He grabbed her wrist. “Careful, woman. I’m not sure I can be patient again.”

She giggled softly. “What if I were to tell you I’m coming to Chicago in two weeks to attend a museum conference? Will you be in the city?”

It was his turn to gulp. “You’d be traveling?”

She nodded, giving him what he was learning was her daring glare. “And apparently we both know how horny I get when I travel away from Elk Grove. Perhaps you’ll be willing to help me take care of that problem now that you’ve had a little sample of what I have to offer.”

Ted leaned over with his hands on his knees and took three deep breaths. He straightened. “Damn, you are something else. You want to stay at my place?”

She shook her head. “No. That would be far too domestic. We’ll meet at my hotel.” She gave him a sharp look. “You must know I don’t reconnect with any of the guys I invite to my room.”




A heist? A murder? It’s villain’s choice.

A special-order art theft? Tedious, but seamless – until small town museum director Kara Daniels calls in the experts. Furious her favorite trio of priceless impressionist paintings has been stolen from its traveling exhibit on her watch, Kara is determined to save not only the paintings, but her future in the art world. She’ll stop at nothing to entrap the thief.

Ted Springs knows the underbelly of the criminal world a little closer than he might like—but he’s turned it to good advantage, first as a police officer, and now as detective for the Upper Midwest Arts Council. His job? To guarantee the security of the valuable paintings in the Council’s traveling exhibits.

Heat sizzles when Ted and Kara collide—can they work together, before it’s too late?

Celebrate Summer ~ Bloghop and #Free book

Welcome to the Summer Lovin’ Blog Hop! Click on the graphic to travel to the rest of the participating blogs, and be sure to scroll down and enter for my giveaway and free book information.

Celebrate Summer!

The two halves of Adriana Kraft got married on the summer solstice thirty-four years ago, so you can bet we’re always up for some Summer Lovin!  With our Welsh and Scottish roots, we’re quite partial to the Celtic calendar, so it was especially meaningful to us to select that date for our wedding.

It should come as no surprise that we reach back to those roots in our fiction. We had a lot of fun crafting our romantic suspense The Unmasking, weaving in Celtic lore as our undercover cop heroine puzzles out the clues to the campus stalker’s warped timetable. The Unmasking will be #FREE at Amazon the last two days of the hop, June 21 and 22, to celebrate the solstice.


Whose mask will crumble first—
the enigmatic professor of Celtic Studies,
the undercover cop masquerading as a co-ed,
or the campus stalker, biding his time to strike again?


Is anthropology professor Matt Bayfield the Blackthorn College rapist, or a potential ally? Aloof and unapproachable, Matt has academic ambitions. He can’t escape Blackthorn College soon enough, and he doesn’t want any entanglements to slow down his exit.

Nancy Appleby would like nothing more than to solve the string of campus rape cases before Thanksgiving so she can go home. The last thing she wants is a relationship to complicate her life—but she’ll settle for a fling, especially when the sex sizzles.

The stalker has his own carefully crafted timetable, with a special date just for Nancy. Can Matt and Nancy force him out of his hidey-hole before it’s too late?


Five Stars at Amazon: One of the best stories ever written by Adriana Kraft…a truly great read. Could not put it down until I finished it. Amy B. Full of unexpected twists, the mystery and suspense intensifies. Wendy C.

Five Stars at Goodreads: The suspense is so well done you don’t know who the bad guy is until it’s revealed in the book. The action is fast paced and kept my interest to the very end. Could not put the book down. Donna H.


Amazon  #FREE June 21-22


Chapter One

Who will be the next victim?

Nancy Appleby scanned the co-eds in the small lecture hall. Each could be his next prey. Each looked much younger than she remembered being as a full-time student. Each woman hung on Professor Bayfield’s well crafted words.

Was it the topic, Celtic Myths and Rituals, or was it the aloofness of the tall, dark-haired lecturer with the strong protruding chin that mesmerized? He did command attention. Although his tone was mild, Bayfield played with his audience like a polished actor. Clearly he was in control. Though he gestured but rarely, he moved like an athlete, comfortable in his body.

Nancy jotted notes on a yellow pad pretending to be no different than anyone else in the room. She glanced up at Bayfield, whose eyes had settled on her; they were piercing and inquisitive. Then he shifted his gaze, but he’d noticed her, was thinking about her. Why? She’d done everything she could to blend in. He hadn’t seemed particularly troubled by her presence, just curious.

Nancy redirected her attention to the individuals sitting in front of her. She’d arrived early to claim an aisle seat in the back row. The raised auditorium layout provided an advantageous observation post. About sixty women and twenty men were in attendance, no doubt a decent turnout. Blackthorn College had a student body of less than two thousand.

Nancy scribbled more notes and then focused on the men in the room.

Was he in the lecture hall? Would he strike again, tonight? Or would the rapist stay in his hole, biding his time?
