Lady Katherine Fawkner comes from a family of cat burglars. And though she has no desire to follow in their footsteps, she has come home to find her family in dire financial straits. With no other options, Kate suits up and plans her first heist. She successfully snatches the gems, but also finds herself witnessing a murder. While checking the condition of the victim, she spies a picture of a little girl who looks remarkably like her young daughter.
Six years earlier Kate was drugged during a party and woke up to realize she’d been raped. Two months later she was undeniably pregnant. Unable to figure out the identity of her rapist all these years, the picture gives her the first promising clue. Now to figure out how to research the photo when she can’t tell anyone she has it.
To make matters even more complicated, she finds herself very attracted to sexy Inspector Kahu Williams. Despite her father’s horror at her choice in men, she finds it impossible to resist his kisses. Can her life possibly get any more complex? In a word – yes!
This story is written in first person, and the reader will find themselves drawn to Kate as she tries so hard to do the right thing, even if does require her to break the law. So many story lines combine to make this a very heartwarming book and I was sad to see it end.
