Tiffany Cartierri isn't the type of woman to have a one night stand with a man, but that's exactly what she does while on vacation. Never expecting to see him again, she is pleasantly surprised when she has to depend on him if she is to find a rare artefact which has been stolen and clear her name for both the theft and murder.

Ian Soren can't believe his luck. He's finally found the woman he had an incredible one night stand with. However, the very woman has got herself into a spot of trouble and it's up to him to help her out of it. If only she'll give him the chance to help her when he soon realises someone is framing her for crimes she didn't commit.

From the start, I found the plot of this book a tad confusing with the hero giving the heroine false information as to his identity. As for the rest of the book, I found it intriguing because it left me desperate to find out who was setting Tiffany up to take the fall. The dialogue was very involved, and did draw me in because of the suspense element that existed because I felt sorry for Tiffany. It was as if she couldn't trust anyone to find the truth of the missing artefact and the person responsible for the murders. The sex scenes were steamy, and I liked how they were spaced out throughout the book and revealed the attraction these two had from the beginning. What I liked so much about Tiffany was that in the end she trusted Ian to help her, even though he didn't give her a reason to. While with Ian, I liked that once he figured out someone was setting Tiffany up to take the fall for a crime she didn't commit that he was willing to help clear her name.

Overall, this book was a good read that I would recommend to readers who like books with lots of complicity and deception by both the main and secondary characters.
