And along with his company, he leaves Desiree a hidden container full of stolen paintings. But she can't admit her father was a thief!

Jill Elizabeth Nelson's debut novel will leave you breathless!" Linda Wichman, award-winning author of Legend of the Emerald Rose "Reluctant Burglar offers a unique blend of who-dunit mystery and high-stakes thriller, with a touch of humor and romance." Sharon Dunn, award-winning author of the Ruby Taylor mysteries READER'S GUIDE INCLUDED Story Behind the Book"One night I woke up, my whole body tense, after dreaming that a woman had snuck into a home in the middle of the night to return a genuine painting that had been stolen and replaced by a clever forgery. I knew little about her except that she was an expert at what she did, and if she was caught, disaster would follow. My imagination began to play with that nugget. I love stories where people risk much to do the right thing, and I feel sick whenever I hear of art or antiquities desecrated or stolen. Putting these elements together into a tale of intrigue--with a sassy heroine and an intense hero--came easily. I believe that capturing the imagination with a gripping story makes a most effective vehicle to convey thought-provoking realities." -- Jill Elizabeth NelsonFrom the Trade Paperback edition.
