But master thief Bryant Westley is after the necklace too and has every intention of seducing his quirky and beautiful competition. He offers to partner up in the search - even though Min is a distraction he can't afford.
Min can’t refuse Bryant’s offer either – even when she realizes she's fallen in love with Bryant. Bryant fears he can't double cross the young lady he's come to love. Can they find the necklace together and admit their love before it's too late?
"Readers will cheer for Min and Bryant! They start out as enemies and rivals and become romantic distractions that neither can afford. They'd secretly love to be together and share the treasure but both have loved ones relying on them which makes betraying each other inevitable. Yet they somehow find a way to their happily ever after." ~ Author Michelle McLean

“You won’t tell me?” Min asked.
He brought his gaze up to meet hers, speaking through clenched teeth. “I can’t tell you.”
“Yet you dare question whether or not I’m sharing everything with you.” The hypocrisy was a bitter sting on her tongue, but better that than hand everything to him and get nothing in return.
Bryant leaned in, his lips brushing across her jaw line. Min gasped, her heart pounding so hard she couldn’t breathe.
“Do you think you are the only one distracted here?” he whispered into her ear. “And do you think I believe for a moment you’ve told me everything?” His finger dipped into the neckline of her blouse and trailed along the locket’s chain.
Min jerked back, but he wouldn’t let go.
“The difference, my dear Minuette, is the more I tell you, the more danger I put you in. I’m trying to keep you safe.” He rubbed his cheek against hers. “Why are you hiding things from me?”
“Because I don’t trust you,” Min murmured.
“I don’t trust you either,” he whispered just before his lips met hers.
