Samantha Jellicoe and her billionaire honey, Rick Addison, are back and bigger than ever in Suzanne Enochís latest contemporary suspense story.

Itís been five months since Samantha turned her back on the crime world. Sheís been relatively clean since meeting Rick and she plans to stay that way. Her new security firm keeps her passably content though she longs for the adrenaline rush that a particularly difficult robbery would give her. Fortunately, sheís got Rick, who definitely gives her an adrenaline rush, and then some!

Samantha and Rick are currently in New York and Sam is anticipating the Sothebyís auction they will be attending. Her cat-burglary days have installed in her an appreciation for art. However, Samís world is rocked on its axis when she spots Martin Jellicoe, her father. Her father who is supposed to be dead! Samís instincts are on red alert and those suspicions are only confirmed when someone breaks into Rickís home and steals a piece of artwork he won at Sothebyís. Samís somewhat normal world comes crashing down around her yet again. What is happening and who is responsible? Sam and Rick are on the case and looking for answers, else, Sam may just face some time in jail.

Suzanne Enoch has done it again! Billionaires Prefer Blondes grips you from the first page and doesnít let you go until the climactic ending. Ms. Enoch certainly hasnít lost her touch in keeping Sam interesting and magnetic. She faces more temptation in this book than in the previous stories. Her father is back, dangling some forbidden fruit in her eyes and Sam isnít sure what to make of it. Her internal dialogue is perhaps one of the most mesmerizing features of this story because in the end, it all comes down to Samís newly acquired values and joys. Rick or thievery?

Rick is as charismatic as ever. Heís definitely a delicious part of this dynamic duo and his white knight tendencies are endearing and frustrating because readers know Sam has it in her to go this alone. However, Sam herself realizes that love requires compromise and sheís definitely making the effort.

The action is fascinating, the plotting is detailed and at times, very comical, and the romance scorches the pages. Sam, Rick, and company just become more detailed, more fleshed-out, and more fun in this new installment. Dynamic, magnetic and downright deliciousÖ satisfy your inner-thief with this fresh crime-caper.
