NIGHT by Anne Stuart:
World-renowned cat burglar, Michael Blackheart, is determined to retire
early from his traditional family business of thievery, after serving
two years in a French prison. However, things change when he learns the
father that he thought was dead is still very much alive, and owns a successful
security firm that is currently in charge of guarding the world famous
Norenheld Treasure. Feeling his father abandoned him, he makes the decision
to mastermind one last robbery. His rewards will be a hefty retirement
fund and revenge.
Isabel Linden thrives
on bringing order to chaos. As an executive assistant, she is the hostess
of the presentation ceremony for the Norenheld Treasure. Having scanned
the guests' registry, she discovers a gatecrasher, Michael Blackheart.
From the first moment she looks into his brown eyes, his tantalizing gaze
captures her. As he asks her to dance and holds her in his strong arms,
her last ounce of common sense vanishes. She simply closes her eyes and
gives in to the strong vibrations that so readily consume her.

her grandmother's priceless jewelry box. Upon seeing Duncan, she notices

I felt "Night and
Day" was masterfully created. Both authors have written books in
the past that have provided me with countless hours of joy. Together,
they have produced an exciting and breath taking volume of romantic suspense
that left me craving more. I hope they combine their formidable talents
again in the future to produce another award winning novel.
