Uh-oh. Respectiable night manager Sophie Maplethorpe is about to break and enter – in her own hotel. Worse, she ducks into the wrong room! But it’s hard to be sorry when she discovers the most sexy, mysterious guy in it …

International security expert Simon Lassiter is on the verge of finding a stolen precious – and pricey – gem . . . until the most criminally inept but majorly hot woman creeps into his room. Much to their soon-discovered mutual pleasure!

But Simon’s got hard-earned savvy and sophistication. He’s not about to trust a woman who just happened to stumble into a major heist.

Not even if she is willing to do anything Simon says in the bedroom . . .

Sophie Maplethorpe can’t believe she is using her master key at the Wingate Hotel to break and enter into a room to retrieve her best friend’s cell phone. Sophie’s friend is supposed to get married next week; instead she spends her bachelorette party in the arms of another man while Sophie digs around for lost items. The man in the room is still sleeping, so Sophie tries to be stealthy, but he wakes up any way. Apparently her friend has given Sophie the wrong room number, so Sophie now finds herself held at gun point by a sexy man requesting the use of the infamous master key.

Simon Lassiter is following the man who gave him false information so Simon could steal the Shay Emerald for its rightful owner. Once Simon understands that he’s been duped, he becomes obsessed with getting the stone back. Simon’s objective is to correct his wrong, but the situation gets more complicated when a strange woman breaks into his room with the means to help his situation. Simon doesn’t take into account the beautiful woman and her natural ability to distract him. Somehow he gains her cooperation and together they work to get the Shay Emerald back.
