So, here I am, attending a society ball, researching the rich and their jewels for my first heist.
Wouldnít you know it? Iím looking for rubies and find a man instead. Not just any man, but a cop.
A cat burglar and a cop? No future there. But I canít stop thinking about Inspector Kahu Williams.
To make matters worse, now thereís been a murder.

So Iím hot on the trail of my revenge for date rape while Inspector Williams searches for a killer. But we keep running into each other and Ö no, this is not going to work...
