Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Solstice Publishing is releasing my love story featuring jewel thieves, a cat, and comic complications. Meet Jackie Riordan, a young woman on the run who seeks protection from her father’s ex-jail partner and fellow jewel thief, Andy (Ace) Miller. Falling for Ace’s charms, Jackie faces several obstacles to her romance: Ace’s cat, Roxie who causes her allergy attacks; Ace’s girlfriend, Liz, who won’t give him up or the money he owes her; and her religious hypocrite mother who is ready to turn her into the cops.
When Jack trumps Ace releases February 14, 2017
When her jewel-thief father is caught in the middle of a heist, Jackie makes her getaway to his ex-jail pal’s apartment. a man called Ace, who lives in an upscale neighborhood of Chicago. What she doesn’t count on is falling in love with him and becoming his partner in crime. She also doesn’t expect to compete with Ace’s old flame or deal with his cat Roxie who causes her allergy attacks.
All bets are off . . .
After Jackie discovers clues left by her father which lead her to a treasure that Ace may have stolen, she contemplates her next move. Should she trust Ace and believe her father gave him the money, or head home to her mother, a religious hypocrite who would have no qualms about ratting out her own daughter to the cops?
Before Jackie can decide who the good guys really are, she finds herself atop the Willis Tower carrying her father’s ashes in her pocket and aiding Ace in the largest jewelry heist of his life. Things go terribly wrong, and Jackie’s only choice seems to be to walk away from Ace or face imprisonment.
