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.
Alex is on the run from her ex-boyfriend who is trying to kill her. She is highly intelligent and good at hiding. She encounters Henry and they team up to find his missing painting. I enjoyed this. Lots of suspense with some romance mixed in. It's hard to work in romance when you're trying to hide from your murderous ex, but Alex manages. I liked how strong and smart Alex is, even if she sometimes makes the wrong choices in order to protect her loved ones. And Henry is just a sweetheart. He's much more than just a nerdy professor. I enjoyed this and recommend for romantic suspense fans.
