Stephen, jerk off, has some redeeming qualities but I found myself constantly wanting to punch him. Tabitha was something else, even though I didn't get to really know her long, I feel like I knew her well. From the stories that were told and the way that Gabrielle saw her. I understood her and why she did some of the things she did. Harrison is classy, funny, well bred, and has some interesting qualities when it comes to honor and who to steal from. Gabrielle, man that chick is tough. She was basically hit from all sides but she showed no fear and didn’t give her underside. She stuck through and got to the bottom of what happened to her sister.
The sexual tension between Gabrielle and Harrison was off the charts. The pages practically burned my hands they were so steamy. I loved how the relationship developed, even though it wasn’t an ideal situation, they were still able to find time for themselves. "The Pretender" was a smooth read that I enjoyed greatly.
They say it takes a thief to catch a thief, and Harrison Tate is proof. Once a professional burglar, he now makes a lawful living tracking down stolen art. No one needs to know about his secret sideline, “liberating” artifacts acquired through underhanded methods. At least until one of those jobs sees him walking in on a murder.
Gabrielle Wright has long been estranged from her wealthy family, but she didn’t kill her sister. Trouble is, the only person who can prove it is the sexy, elusive criminal who shouldn’t have been at the island estate on that terrible night. She’s not expecting honor among thieves—or for their mutual attraction to spark into an intense inferno of desire.
Under the guise of evaluating her family’s art, Harris comes back to the estate hoping to clear Gabby’s name. But returning to the scene of the crime has never been riskier, with their hearts and lives on the line.
