Too Hot to Handle
Author: Nancy Warren
Manhattan jewelry designer Lexy Drake knew the warning signs even as she was tempted to have a fling.
Charles Pendegraff III was too rich, too good-looking—and light-fingered. He stole the mysterious Isabella
Emeralds from right under her nose—along with stealing her heart.Rule #1 for Charlie: never have a fling
with your "mark." But Lexy was so hot—and the jewels even hotter, judging by the sudden interest from
far too many people. Charlie had to convince Lexy he'd been framed. And that all the times they'd spent
burning up the bedsheets were not just stolen nights!
