There's nothing like being blackmailed by a dead man to really bring a group of cons together. And what a group we are: a hacker, a thief, a con artist, a thug, and a Federal agent with an ax to grind. The deal is simple: We do the jobs, and Charlie's lawyer wipes the slate clean for each of us, one at a time. Since job number one calls for some muscle, it looks like I'm up first.
Veterinarian Blaise Hanssen understood animals...especially the strays he collected. When he stumbled across a dog and its homeless owner scrounging for food in an alley, his protective instincts kicked in.

As the two unraveled the mystery of her amnesia and the intentional accident that caused it, Blaise called upon the Saints.

Now, I'm back home in Seattle. I'm definitely tied...and the pressure is on. I have a tiny surprise that will last forever. But Lorenzo is the heir to a dark legacy he wants no part of. What will he do when he finds out he has an heir of his own?

Unfortunately, my biggest distraction is my biggest asset - Danny Monroe. Danny is a leftover complication from our first job. He's a smart, funny, gorgeous ex-prostitute who can't seem to keep his clothes on.

Erik Sørenson. Fast. Hot. Electrifying. With a grin that could melt ice. My life was going just fine here in Brooklyn where I've lived all my life. Then, the player they call the Nordic Lightning came skating into it. What I know about hockey I could fit on the tip of my little finger. I know even less about Erik Sørenson.

I've learned he's the playmaker, the one that helps his teammates score - both on and off the ice.

Andrew Mercier. Cocky. Enigmatic. Seductive as sin. Appearing when and where I least expect him. Is he just a chameleon? Or a wolf in sheep's clothing?

Including the fact that I have my eye set on a valuable painting that disappeared in Occupied France during WWII.
