Sabinne ‘Saber’ Darrieux’s father, the billionaire CEO of Frontenac Global Security has been kidnapped. His ransom is not cash in a numbered offshore account, or a briefcase of Bearer Bonds but something utterly unique, incredibly valuable, and until recently, hidden away from the world.
The kidnapper seems to know Saber very well and knows that the next day, through her work as an elite translator she will be in the same location as the Object. She must steal the Object and deliver it to the kidnapper to ransom her father.
Adrian Steele, a British Intelligence agent has just come off of two harrowing missions. Upon returning to London for a well-earned rest, he learns that his friend and a fellow agent have been murdered in Moscow, but not before he made use of a unique Object as a mobile ‘drop site’ for the valuable intelligence he was carrying.
The drop site is traveling from Moscow to England. Steele insists on completing the mission to honor the death of his friend, Gerry Cornell.
At an ultra-chic quasi-diplomatic gathering in a mansion in Windsor, England, Saber and Steele meet and find themselves faced with a powerful, undeniable attraction. But at the moment, this compelling attraction is very inconvenient.
In reality, they are at the mansion to check out the security arrangements — for their own reasons — to steal the Object, a Fabergé egg worth thirty million dollars. But who will get to the egg first?
Fabergé eggs are very famous for their unique surprises. Saber and Steele are about to be very surprised, indeed.
And when Saber clashes with Steele; more than sparks will explode!
The engine of the performance-tuned Mini roared under his expert handing as he shifted into higher gear. Her eyes flickered down to the tachometer, then to his serious profile.
“Why do you want the egg?” Saber asked bluntly. She glanced out the window, recognizing the road turning. She had to do something quickly or she would be lost. In more ways than one.
“If I told you, then I’d have to kill you,” he replied through a clenched jaw, only half joking.
“Kiss me again, and it’ll be worth it,” she whispered as she leaned into him. Her warm breath tickled his ear. She edged even closer.
She reached down pulling up hard on the parking brake with her right hand, grabbing the steering wheel with her left at the same time. She wrestled with the wheel, trying to maintain control as the little Mini Cooper S wove madly from side to side, spun in a half circle and shuddered to a stop in the deserted road.
He stared at her, looking deep into her bottomless eyes.
She stared back into his eyes, licking her lips.
“You’ve got very interesting ideas about foreplay,” his voice just barely above a whisper, his heart thundering faster than before.
“Is that what this is?” she asked of him, breathless.
