Sample text:

Chapter 1

            All Adrienne Roche could think of as she crossed through the quaint town of Sierra Dunes, Spain was Jack Porter’s last words to her before she left Paris.

            “If he doesn’t sell the portrait, I’m giving you permission to steal it.”

            Her boss never took no for an answer and sent her there to check the authenticity of a painting.

            “I’m an Art Historian, not a thief.” Adrienne winced, but she knew nothing could be more threatening than the nasty divorce she had been through a year before. Sierra Dunes was an escape for her, and if she had to convince the town’s mayor to sell the damn portrait, she would...in a heartbeat.

            “For the record, you’re not really stealing it, you’re bringing it back to where it originated. It belonged to my grandfather.”

            Adrienne had caught a glimpse of the portrait of a beautiful lady painted during the 1940’s. She didn’t doubt there was something mysterious about the woman’s emerald green melancholic eyes that exuded a look that commanded attention.
