Seduction hotter than stolen jewels in this new series from the New York Times bestselling author of Big Rock.
Bounty hunter Jake Harlowe knows how to track a criminal. So when a group of swindled shareholders hire him to trail their former CEO, Jake expects a quick trip to the Cayman Islands to close another case. Until a devastatingly beautiful woman gets in the way.
Steph Anderson is visiting the Caymans for a rock climbing and dive trip—or so she tells Jake. She’s really trying to find out whether or not her stepfather embezzled money from his company. The last thing Steph needs is the distraction of a sexy, charming man whose kisses drive her wild.
Soon, the pair discover they’re after the same target—and millions in jewels. While Jake can’t be certain Steph isn’t working for her stepfather, and Steph can’t be certain Jake isn’t after the diamonds for himself, they can agree the heat between them is intense, and neither can deny the passion for long.
But the morning after, Steph discovers that she just might have slept with the enemy, and now she’ll have to outwit him to get everything she needs…
REVIEW by CA Borgford:
The Sapphire Affair is a light and dreamy read. I was easily swept up into the mystery. Lauren Blakely continues to be a master at writing steamy pursuits. Jake and Steph sparkle like diamonds and shine like a bright sunny day. Their characters are very well developed and equally matched. I adore this couple together. Their attempts at self-restraint are laugh out loud funny and their sexy time is adventurous and electric. Jake radiates sex appeal. The yum factor is high … very very high. Add in a setting that’s perfect for a summertime beach read and you’ve got a recipe for success. What happens when your island tryst exceeds your expectations? Will love be their bounty? Or will they realize that the truth is still too risky? I can’t wait to find out when Jake and Steph’s adventure concludes in The Sapphire Heist.
