She’s on the run…
Brilliant art appraiser Alex Northrop’s ex used stolen art to fund his nefarious activities. Now he wants her dead. But it isn’t just herself she’s worried about – if he discovers who she really is, he’ll kill her family.
Professor Henry Chilton is shocked to find a beautiful stranger passed out in his bed, and even more so when she reveals a priceless painting is a forgery – the painting he’d planned to use to fund a woman’s shelter. She’s mysterious and frightened, and he is determined to discover why.
Alex's knowledge of art is undeniable—just as Henry’s attraction to her is irresistible. But in order to help him recover the real painting, Alex isn't just risking exposure...she's risking her life.
My Thoughts - Story
I was a bit skeptical about reading this book because romantic suspense isn’t usually my favorite genre to read but I was surprised with how easy it was to get into this book and connect with the characters. I really liked Alex and her personality so much – she was such a strong woman after being abused and on the run. Henry was lovable but I did find his obsession with Alex a bit creepy and too soft for a man like him.
The book was fast paced and a quick read – once you pick it up so much happens that the action completely takes over the story.
Alex is on the run from an ex boyfriend who only used her for her talent in art appraisals. After he didn’t need her anymore – she was on the list to be killed. Able to escape, Alex ends up hiding in the home of Professor Henry Chilton who instantly is attracted and vows to help her. Alex ends up risking her own life and secrets to help Henry get back a stolen painting.
