Genre: Art thieves
Responsible, disciplined William Fox channeled his love for art and his faith in the rules into being an FBI Art Crimes agent. Right and wrong, justice and injustice-the differences are clear, and Will has spent his career drawing a line between them. Maybe his convictions have cost him relationships, but he's not willing to compromise what he knows is right. Until the night he meets Amory Vaughn. As the head of his family's philanthropic foundation, Vaughn knows very well that being rich and powerful can get him almost anything he wants. And when he meets endearingly grumpy and slightly awkward William Fox, he wants him more than he's wanted anything. Vaughn is used to being desired for his name and his money, but Will doesn't care about either. When Vaughn falls back on old habits and attempts to impress Will by stealing a painting Will admires, their nascent bond blows up in his face. But Vaughn isn't willing to give up on the glimpse of passion he saw the night he took Will apart. Before Will knows it, he's falling for the man he should have arrested, and Vaughn has to realize that some things can't be bought or stolen. Love has to be given freely. But can a man who lives by the rules, and a man who thinks the rules don't apply to him, ever see eye to eye?
