She, her son Davey, and her prizewinning poodles are more than willing to take little Dox in as a temporary boarder But the more Melanie discovers about the pup's background the messier the case gets. It seems the wiener dog is part of a divorced couple's emotional tug-o-war. Marian Firth, who bred Dox, is certainly concerned for his welfare. Unfortunately, her vindictive ex-husband George, won custody-and is going out of his way to use the animal as ammunition. George knows that donating the dog to the auction will hurt Marian-and only he can rescind the offer. As if tiptoeing through the minefield of a broken marriage isn't nerve-wracking enough, there's also Melanie's new stalker-or stalkers-to deal with.

Everywhere she turns, they seem to turn up. It's annoying, but what's truly frightening is the presence of someone stealthier-and far more sinister. Someone who's gotten into her house at night; and turned on every single light in the place; someone who's stolen her wallet, and let her dogs loose in her neighborhood. Someone who's dognapped Dox. With the doggy abduction and her son's safety on mind, Melanie is determined to clear things up as soon as possible. But new suspects keep coming out of the woodwork, including Phil, the dogsitting client with a penchant for "watching," and Jean and Mike Azaria, a pair of Bichon breeders who are furious at Melanie because of a favor gone awry. As things grow more desperate-and dangerous-it's beginning look like Melanie's life may be the next thing up for auction...

Award-winning author Cherry Adair broke thrilling new ground with On Thin Ice-her stunning romantic suspense hardcover debut. Now Cherry's turning up the temperature, amping up the action, and raising the degree of danger and desire to irresistibly hot new heights. Diamonds-jewels of every kind, in fact-are Taylor Kincaid's best friends. The only thing she enjoys more is the challenge of stealing them, at which she excels like few others in the world. And specializing in plundering precious stones from wealthy international criminals just makes it all the more satisfying . . . and dangerously exciting. So for Taylor, there's no resisting the double allure of snatching the elusive Blue Star diamonds-a prize she has pursued across three continents-from the South American stronghold of the murderous Morales terrorist organization. The heist goes down without a hitch. Until Taylor discovers she has made off with more than she bargained for, namely the secret security-system codes that provide access to a South African diamond mine-packed with enough gems to sink a battleship. Suddenly, Taylor's no longer just an ultrachic freelance jewel thief, but a reluctant player in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game against elite global trouble-shooters and bloodthirsty terrorists. There's nothing reluctant, however, about Huntington St. John, the top T-FLAC operative who's hot on Taylor's trail. And in Taylor's opinion, just plain hot. The feeling, emotional and otherwise, is very mutual. Though they're on opposite sides of the law, Hunt and Taylor swiftly come to appreciate each other's well-honed skills. But since ecstasy is fleeting, and diamonds are forever, Taylor soon slips from the sheets and hits the streets . . . to reclaim the jewels she stashed overseas. And true to his name, Hunt is close behind-but this time, he's after more than the codes. With the clock ticking, and two groups of terrorists closing fast, they'll have to mix pleasure with some very risky business. If they can survive danger at every turn, outwit the ultimate high-tech security system, and somehow conquer each other . . . they just might get everything they desire. From the Hardcover edition.
