This is a really interesting suspense adventure romance between two rival art dealers.
This is a hot romance - there are Christian elements (the protagonists are church goers who help their communities and there are no bedroom scenes) but the romance is sizzling all the same.
Cassie - 29 yo, pretty curly-haired brunette would love to get married and have a bogs family but so far she's devoted to her successful career as head buyer for a prestigious art gallery in California. Elegant, educated, intelligent and cultured career woman at work - but a wholesome Christian and kind girl when with her friends - Cassie is clueless when it comes to men and romance. She isn't aware when men are interested, which some men assume is her being a cold snob, when she's actually oblivious to flirting.
Jared - 33 yo, good-looking head buyer for a prestigious art gallery in New York, Jared is also a Church going practising Christian who comes from a big family and would eventually like to settle down and have a large family too. However, initially Jared and Cassie don't see eye to eye and almost hate each other before circumstances and mutual attraction brings them closer.
Supporting Characters - all are well fleshed out and introduced really well. Unlike some books that describe each character to detail as they come into the picture - this story has the character details sewn into the plot, hence you get to know a person as the action unfolds rather than a monologue of each person's attributes. Makes it far more interesting.
Plot: there's romance, suspense/mystery and action (what with hit-men, the FBI and other suspicious activity going gone). The "mystery" was pretty obvious and who was responsible but despite that it was still enjoyable. I liked the details relating to how auction houses work, the pricing and cultural references - it's the right amount to make it interesting (and make the book realistic) without turning into a documentary.
The only thing I would say is that some of the author's (political?) agenda comes across such as large families and guns - this might give pause to some readers.
