Whitney MacAllister is gorgeous, reckless, and rich. Douglas Lord is a street-wise criminal with a weakness for literature--and beautiful jewels. Chased by gangsters who are trying to kill him, Lord jumps into Whitney's car at a street light and before he knows it, she's taking them on a wild chase across Manhattan to elude his killers. She probably saves his life, and although he is grateful, and attracted to the beautiful Whitney, what Lord really needs is to get to Madagascar, where he is sure to find a treasure buried since the French Revolution. A treasure that will set him up for the rest of his life. The only probably is getting there. He has no money, and before he knows it, the chronically bored Whitney is using her cash and connections to get them both on a plane to Africa.
This is a classic Nora Roberts tale, with all the elements of great romantic suspense: murder, evil villians, and a fierce, dangerous attraction between the main characters.
