Crimes Unit #2
Lawsonâ€™s bosses at Scotland Yard donâ€™t take her work very
seriously. Art and antiquities? Bor-ing! But her latest
investigation, at Londonâ€™s world-renowned Tate, is turning out to
be far more explosive than anyone expected. In fact, the vandalized,
booby-trapped painting hanging on the gallery wall would have blown
her off her feet if it wasnâ€™t for the tall, dark-haired stranger
who tackled her at the last secondâ€”a stranger as finely sculpted as
any masterpiece in the museum.
Maxwell is working this case for the Elite Crimes Unit because it was
a choice between that and lockup. A (barely) reformed art forger,
heâ€™s got the expertise to lead Olivia through a dangerous manhunt.
But the crime may have a more personal connection to himâ€”and the
all-too-real feelings heâ€™s developing toward Olivia could pull her
into the line of fire too . . .
Crimes Unit #1
Elite Crimes Unit works behind the scenes of Interpolâ€”and employs
some of the worldâ€™s most talented criminal minds. Because as
everyone knows, it takes a thief to catch a thiefâ€”or to seduce one

old farmhouse in the French countryside is a refuge for former jewel
thief Josephine Deveraux. Admittedly, there arenâ€™t many men in the
vicinity, but she has her cat to cuddle up with. Itâ€™s a far cry
from her former life, constantly running from the law, and sheâ€™s
enjoying her peace . . . until the intruder in the three-piece suit
tackles her. He wants her back in the game, helping with a heistâ€”and
heâ€™s not above making threats to get his way.
does Josephine know that notoriousâ€”and notoriously charmingâ€”thief,
Xavier Lambert, is after the very same 180-carat prize sheâ€™s being
blackmailed to steal. To his chagrin, heâ€™s doing it not as a free
agent, but as a member of the Elite Crimes Unitâ€”the team he was
forced to join when his brilliant career came to a sudden end. And
little does Xavier know that his comeback is about to include a
strangerâ€™s kiss, a stinging slap, and a hunt for missing
treasureâ€”along with the infuriatingly sexy woman whoâ€™s outfoxing
him . . .
Hauf has been writing romance, action-adventure and fantasy stories
for over twenty years. Her first published novel was Dark Rapture
(Zebra). France, musketeers, vampires and faeries populate her
stories. And if she followed the adage â€œwrite what you know,â€ all
her stories would have snow in them. Fortunately, she steps beyond
her comfort zone and writes about countries she has never visited and
of creatures she has never seen.
