Samantha Jellicoe is trying to build a new life.  This retired cat burglar started a security company to help the rich and famous keep their valuables.  But she can’t help but feel the urge to steal whenever she is under a lot of stress.  However, she can resist the temptation because Rick keeps her grounded.  Despite what people think, she loves him for his wit, laughter and the awesome sex.  When they go to an invitation only auction at Sotheby’s, it’s like she is a kid in a candy store.  As Samantha sits and looks around, she notices that she isn’t the only one looking at the artwork.  It looks like dear old dad is there too.  The only problem is he’s supposed to be dead.


Rick Addison is happy with his relationship with Samantha.  He knows that she is reformed and is trying to live on the straight and narrow but he wants her to lean on him whenever she is feeling overwhelmed.  When a priceless painting is stolen and all eyes point to her, Rick’s instincts tell him that there is more going on that meets the eye.  Soon this billionaire and retired thief are on the prowl to find out who is behind the theft and try to stop them from stealing again.

 

BILLIONAIRES PREFER BLONDES follows the continuing relationship between Rick and Samantha.  Samantha is an independent woman who is learning how to trust and lean on others especially Rick.   Old habits die hard, especially when trusting someone can mean the difference between a big pay day and jail.  I enjoyed reading about how she tries to take those baby steps with Rick.  As they get deeper into the mystery, both of them learn more about each other and their own relationship. 

 

Rick is an aggressive man who knows what he wants and he will do everything in his power to get it.  He thinks that he needs to protect Samantha but soon realizes she needs an equal, not a master.  She teaches him quite a few things, but most of all patience.  Their sex life certainly doesn’t suffer!  The secondary characters are quite colorful and fun.  They add a lot of laughter but also bring out another side of Rick and Samantha.  If you enjoy reading a mystery filled with a smart couple and colorful characters, BILLIONAIRES PREFER BLONDES is the book for you.  It will keep you guessing about who is the ultimate thief.
