Summary: After an assault at her family home in Maine, Dr. Miranda Jones is determined to put the experience behind her. Distraction comes when she is summoned to Italyâ€”to verify the authenticity of a Renaissance bronze of a Medici courtesan known as The Dark Lady.
But instead of cementing Mirandaâ€™s reputation as the leading expert in the field, the job nearly destroys it when her professional judgment is called into question. Emotionally estranged from her mother, with a brother immersed in his own troubles, Miranda has no one to turn to...except Ryan Boldari, a seductive art thief whose own agenda forces them into a reluctant alliance.
Now it becomes clear that the incident in Maine was not a simple muggingâ€”and that The Dark Lady may possess as many secrets as its beautiful namesake once did. For Miranda, forced to rely on herselfâ€”and a partner who offers her both unnerving suspicion and intoxicating passionâ€”the only way home is filled with deception, treachery, and a danger that threatens them all.
