SHE WAS PAMPERED, POSH AND PROTECTED
Laura Marley happened to have valuable information about the Garden Emerald, otherwise former agent Mickey Stone considered her a liability.
Exiled so long from the mainstream, living so close to the streets, Mickey had only one chance to regain his respectability. And no one was going to jeopardize his recovery of the eighty-eight-carat gem his ex-wife had snatched.
Laura wouldn't be sidelined. She, too, had suffered losses, losses even greater than Mickey's--he couldn't know the demons that drove her.
But Mickey was right about one thing: Laura had always been shielded from desperate, dangerous men--men like Mickey Stone.
