The Pleasures of Autumn
'Move over Fifty - this gives far more pleasure' Irish Independent on The Pleasures of Winter
Passion will have its way ...
When museum curator Sinead O'Sullivan is charged with stealing the Fire of Autumn, a dazzling ruby with a history of violence and treachery, bail is set at one million Swiss francs. Investigator Niall Moore is hired to stop her fleeing and to find the jewel.
Their sexual chemistry is electric but logic says to ignore it. Desperate as she is to convince Niall of her innocence, Sinead cannot reveal everything she knows. And the feisty red-head's improbable tale tells him that she is not to be trusted.
Yet it's impossible to ignore the carnal heat between them. Niall, an expert interrogator, uses every trick of the trade - and every weapon in his erotic armoury - to get at the truth. Sinead, a fast learner, counters his every move with one of her own. Thief and thief-taker fight for dominance and there can be only one winner.
But what happens in their red-hot game of cat-and-mouse when criminals chasing the precious jewel come after Sinead ... and the stakes become deadly?
