Can opposites really attract?
A robbery followed by the discovery of a forgery at a respected art gallery thrusts Chelsea Owens into the center of an investigation headed by Detective Sam Eldridge. The instant chemistry between the high-spirited aspiring curator and the tall, dark, brooding cop is a classic case of opposites attract.
Complications arise when Chelsea uncovers a connection to an unsolved art heist. Teaming up with Sam to find the stolen paintings ignites feelings that could lead to lasting love. But Sam isn’t ready to move beyond the tragedy in his past, no matter how promising his future with Chelsea could be…

There’s a stranger at the door on Christmas Day…
Single mother Paige Summerville wants to give her seven-year-old son the Christmas of his dreams. Jason needs surgery to beat the illness that’s plagued his young life, leaving Paige desperate to make ends meet. So she turns to a charity that grants the wishes of sick children…
Then a stranger arrives bearing gifts for Jason—and for her. He’s Daniel Kinsley, a lawyer who’s grown cynical about family. But his kindness in making Jason’s wishes come true offers him more than he ever imagined. Is there room in Paige’s heart for a man who could fulfill all their dreams? And not just at Christmas!
At work, Sam made a point of wrapping things up on time for a change. In the station’s locker room, he took off his tie and stuck it in his pocket. He washed his face, cleaned his teeth and ran a brush through his hair.
As he pulled up in front of Sorley’s fifteen minutes later, he saw Chelsea’s car. One more thing to like about her. She was punctual. If things went well, maybe he’d be able to talk her into having dinner with him.
One step at a time, he cautioned himself, as he walked into Sorley’s.
She was sitting in a booth, facing the door, and noticed him right away. Smiling, she waved to him, and he felt that strange sensation in his gut again.
Shortly after he sat down, a waitress came to take their order.
“Thanks again for getting together with me,” she said after they had their drinks.
“Thanks for inviting me. But I have to ask—why did you?”
She shrugged. “I’d like to get to know you.”
He was about to ask why again but held back. “Okay. What would you like to know?”
She laughed. “Just like that?”
“Yeah. Just like that.”
She pursed her lips, appearing thoughtful, and he couldn’t stop staring at her, she looked so darn pretty.
“Oh, I know! What does your middle initial, D, stand for?”
Now he laughed. “That’s it? That’s what you want to know about me?”
Her grin was big and bright. “It’s a start. I wondered when I saw it on your business card.”
He hadn’t thought her smile could’ve been any sunnier, but he’d been wrong.
“Dorian? As in The Picture of Dorian Gray?”
“The movie, right?”
She nodded. “And the book. By Oscar Wilde.”
“Well, yes, I suppose so.”
She touched the top of his hand with hers. “See, you do have a connection—tenuous as it might be—to the art world!”
“I don’t have a picture of myself at home that ages instead of me, if that’s what you mean. Speaking of art, how did you first get interested in it?” he asked, wanting to get off the topic of his unusual middle name.
She took a sip of her wine. “Oh, I loved to paint from the time I was old enough to hold a brush.”
He smiled, picturing her as a child with a brush in her hand and paint smeared on her face.
“Before you get too caught up in that fantasy, I have to say I had no talent.”
“I find that hard to believe.” His opinion of her was that she could probably do anything she set her mind to.
She laughed and the joyous, carefree sound touched something deep inside him that had been dormant too long.
