After being fired from the Academie des Artes in Paris, art historian Katrina McLeod’s job options are extremely limited. Although over-qualified, she agrees to inventory the Baron de Gervay’s art collection at his remote chateau in Provence. Her mundane job soon turns into a nightmare as she finds herself enmeshed in Gervay’s plot to smuggle terrorists out of France.
During the day, Nick Santini can be seen taking land surveys for a ski resort that his company plans to build just a few miles from the chateau. It’s his nighttime activities that he needs to keep secret.
Katrina’s smart enough to know she can’t handle the situation alone. After learning Nick’s true identity, she accepts his offer of help. With the French Riviera as a backdrop, they race against the clock to trap Gervay and prevent a planned terrorist bombing in New York City.
