Summary:

The unseen assailant attacked Dr. Miranda Jones outside her Maine home as she returned from a busy lecture tour. After terrorizing her with a knife held to her throat, he stole her purse, slashed her tires, and disappeared. Shaken and bruised, Miranda was determined to put the assault out of her mind, and welcomed the distraction offered by a summons to Italy to verify the authenticity of a Renaissance bronze of a Medici courtesan known as The Dark Lady. However, instead of cementing Miranda's reputation as a leading authority in her field, the bronze nearly destroys it when her professional judgment is called into question and the bronze is declared a hoax. Desperate to restore her credibility and prove The Dark Lady is really a previously unknown work of Michelangelo, Miranda turns to Ryan Boldari, a seductive - and supposedly reformed - art thief. For Miranda, forced to rely on herself and a partner with his own hidden agenda, the only way home is filled with treachery, deception, and a danger that threatens everything she loves.

    Nora Roberts has always been near the top of my author's lists. This one proved to be right up there with the rest. A short but very sweet story with a great twist!

    The abridged version is not worth the time it takes to listening to it. The characters were not developed properly, the entire story jumped around and I found it entirely boring, especially since I knew the outcome from the start. Guy meets gal and get together in the end. Perhaps the unabridged version could have some potential, but that wasn't offered.

    I barely got through this one. It was the only one in the car or ele I'd have passed on it.. Not up to par.

    I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts, but I really felt like I missed so much of the story with the abridged version. It seemed as if the major points of the story were all highlighted without any background information as to how the situation/characters developed leading up to that point. I was really disappointed at the end.
