Welcome to Snippet Sunday – ten (or so) sentences from all your favorite romance authors! You’ll find them all at this Facebook Group every Sunday:
Picking up where we left off last week with The Heist, MF romantic suspense. The museum has just been broken into, but nothing was stolen. Kara is reflecting at the end of the day.
Clearing her desk, Kara smiled recalling Sasha’s chauffeur-babysitter reference. Springs might need someone to drive him around, and she’d probably get Irving involved in that, but it was definitely her job to meet him at the airport and see that he was dealt with professionally. He wouldn’t want or need a babysitter.
She allowed her mind to wander to their first meeting in the Art Council’s Chicago offices. It had been a random event, an embarrassing experience. She’d barreled into him while exiting Alice Erikson’s office. Coming along behind her, Alice had made the introductions, saving an awkward moment as Kara disentangled herself from Ted’s arms. She’d never given their meeting much thought, other than to be aware he’d taken more time than needed to free her. She’d never expected to see him again.
Did he remember their brief encounter?
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?
