Professional art restorer Emily Greene is in no mood to
see the devil-may-care Max Aries. She hasnâ€™t forgotten â€“
or forgiven â€“ the way Max dropped into her life a year
ago, stole her heart, then vanished without a word. Max
hadnâ€™t kept in touch with his father, Daniel, either.
Daniel Aries had been a master of art restoration and
reproduction, and not only Emilyâ€™s longtime mentor, but a
trusted friend. His unexpected suicide devastates her. And
when the prodigal playboy Max returns, her welcome is less

saves her from a lethal intruder. But her fury gives way

to her anger at herself for so long denying the truer,
deeper feelings she has for him. As they crisscross
Europe, piecing together the shocking clues to an
insidious international plot, dodging increasingly lethal
traps, and passionately making up for too much lost time,
they realize that â€“ in more ways than one â€“ they canâ€™t
live without each other. With no chance of turning back,
Max and Emily must put their lives on the line, put their
true feelings to the test... and get ready to take the
