Reluctant Smuggler

Ready for another great read? Here's a recommendation especially for romantic suspense fans: Jill Elizabeth Nelson's third To Catch a Thief novel, Reluctant Smuggler.

If you've followed Desi and Tony's story of art , antiquities, and great FBI action like I have, then this book will capture your heart as well. Full of toe-curling romance and a fascinating FBI story, Reluctant Smuggler is sure to please.

Story summary:

Looting of archaeological sites is big business in a thriving art and antiquities black market. When a desperate foreign government hires Desiree Jacobs’s security company to stop the hemorrhage, she runs afoul of a deadly art-for-drugs operation. Tony Lucano risks his rising career in the FBI to dive into the international underworld after her. Before either of them can come up for air, they must navigate through a deepening murk of ruthless looters, hair-trigger DEA agents, crooked government agents, and innocent bystanders caught up in an illegal trade beyond their understanding. Even if a miracle delivers Desi and Tony from evil, will their love survive the test?

Complete with a reader’s guide, this third book in the To Catch a Thief series explores the power of hope in the darkest of circumstances.
