Former Marine and bona fide hero, Ranger Corrigan, is one paycheck away from joining his brethren among the ranks of Los Angeles’s homeless Veterans. When he is offered a great paying job in a palatial mansion, Ranger jumps at the chance for a roof over his head and a hot meal in his belly.
Handsome and cultured Landry Metzel lives too well to be the insurance appraiser he claims to be, and Ranger can’t help but want to know why he’s been hired to protect an innocuous man with no enemies. Metzel certainly won’t be sorry to see him go.
As famous masterpieces suddenly begin disappearing from private collections, Ranger begins putting two and two together. When an LAPD detective starts asking questions about murders tied to the thefts, Ranger suddenly wants to learn more about the man he’s hopelessly attracted to.
A wisecracking former Marine, a man with a desperate secret to hide, and a murderous villain come together in a tale of murder, danger, intrigue, and the crime of the century.
I was apprehensive when I opened this book because I wasn’t a fan of the first in the series. I’m so very glad that I chose to read it. This book is beautiful! The history of the art and the artists and paintings mentioned makes my inner art nerd so happy. I know not all of the paintings mentioned were real, but some were. As someone that knows a tiny bit more than the average person about art, I absolutely loved being able to tell when facts are well researched. The story kept my interest from start to finish. Watching the relationship between Ranger and Landry build was perfect. They fit together so well. Ranger’s struggle with his feelings and Landry’s struggles with his double life. You don’t have to have read the first book to enjoy this one. Though if you’ve read it, and some of Patricia’s previous work, you’ll see some familiar faces. Now I’m super excited for the third book in the series.
