Harper Torch, Nov 2004, 6.99, 384 pp.
After burying her father, thirty-seven years old Narice Jordan takes a taxi to the Detroit Airport so she can fly to her Baltimore home. However, the driver abducts her demanding she tell him what her dad did with the “Eye of Sheba” diamond. Narice insists she knows nothing. Anthony “Saint” St. Martin arrives to rescue Narice, but he and the driver Arthur Ridley know he each other. Ridley warns Narice not to trust the Saint as he will eventually dump her once he gets the diamond.
Narice did not need the warning as she trusts no man even as the Saint treats her nice and she is attracted to him. Still she knows he has an agenda that obviously ties back to the missing diamond that Ridley insisted her father stole. As Narice insists she knows nothing, she and the Saint fall in love.
