FRENCH TWIST by ROXANNE ST. CLAIRE
In the land of romance, there is love in the air...and
danger in the shadows.
Acting as curator of the prestigious exhibit at the Palace
of Versailles is Professor Janine Coulter's chance to
prove herself and vindicate her deceased mentor and
friend. She will stop at nothing to be sure the three
priceless vases once commissioned by Madame du Pompadour
but lost for centuries are showcased to the art world.
Unfortunately, Luc Tremont, a security specialist, has
made decisions without consulting her, undercutting her
authority and threatening the success of the exhibit.
Regardless of her sizzling attraction to the handsome
Frenchman, Janine also has to fight the uneasy suspicion
that he's not all that he seems.
Luc Tremont has lived a lie for many years and he finally
has the chance to escape his dark past. All he has to do
is follow a trail that leads directly to a vicious
criminal and lead the FBI art crimes division to its
target. To do so, Luc arranges an elaborate scheme to make
it appear that the Pompadour Plums have been stolen.
Unfortunately, Luc's nemesis is one step ahead of him and
the plan is foiledthe real vases are stolen and it
suddenly appears that Luc is the thief. Unless Luc can
find the missing Pompadour Plums and turn his enemy over
to the FBI, he'll never be free.
Janine and Luc are forced to ignore the powerful current
that draws them to each other. With the same goal, but
very different motivations, they team up as both the
hunters and the hunted, racing across the lush countryside
of Burgundy to the glamorous casinos of the French Alps.
As danger mounts, so does their mutual attraction and the
inevitable disclosure that will reveal Luc's true
identity. Janine begins to fear the thief who will steal
her heart more than the one who has stolen the famed
and Luc knows that it's only a matter of time until Janine
learns his true identity. That revelation will kill their
chances of any future together...if his enemy doesn't kill
them both first.
