*This book previously appeared as Color Me Bad.* It has been ten years since Hecuba Jones last burgled her way into a darkened house, but how else can she recover the lost paintings of her artist mother? She manages to find the Earl of Underwood's study and the four paintings she's searching for--but just when she is about to make off with her prizes, she is discovered by the earl's sardonic younger brother. John Rushmore has all but given up on his talents as a painter, unable to recapture the passion of earlier days. He is thrilled to have his boredom lightened by the appearance of a redheaded thief--and even more delighted to be introduced to her the following night in an elegant Society ballroom. Miss Hecuba Jones is prickly and suspicious and absolutely irresistible. She's also an inspiration. Before long John finds himself working deep into the night to try and capture the feverish, erotic visions she provokes. Soon, they reach an agreement. John will trade the four paintings she attempted to steal for four portraits of Hecuba herself. Intimate nights and candlelight soon transform artistic pleasures into physical ecstasy--but old family secrets and a blossoming scandal threaten to shatter their fragile liaison.… (more)
