It's never too late for revenge...
Adrianne, daughter of a fabled Hollywood beauty and an equally fabled Arab playboy, leads a remarkable double life. The paparazzi and the gossip columnists know her as a modern princess, a frivolous socialite flitting from exclusive watering spot to glittering charity ball.
No one knows her as The Shadow, the most extraordinary jewel thief of the decade. She hones her skills at larceny as she parties with the super-rich, stealing their trinkets and baubles just for practice. For she has a secret plan for the ultimate heist--a spectacular plan to even a bitter score. The Shadow is intent on justice--and sweet revenge.
Her secret is her own... until Philip Chamberlain, once a renowned thief himself, now the smartest, toughest cop on Interpol's team, closes in for the kill. The only mistake he makes is to fall under Arianne's seductive spell.
