Hearts In Vegas-Colleen Collins

In Las Vegas, Vanderbilt Insurance assigns agent Frances Jefferies to investigate stolen jewels and antiquities.  In spite of a court warning to break no laws after receiving probation for stealing a few years ago, Frances breaks into Fortier’s Jewelry to take back a brooch belonging to Lady Melbourne that was stolen a decade ago from an Amsterdam museum. 

Dmitri Romanov calls Morgan-Leroy Investigations to speak to security specialist Braxton Morgan. He explains to Brax and his brother Drake (see Sleepless in Las Vegas) that the Russian community is concerned over the arrest and rumors involving Yuri Glazkov who Brax once worked for at the Topaz club.  Meanwhile Frances is caught on tape doing the brooch switch; a Russian holding the tape demands she steal the extremely valuable Helena Diamond necklace; which Brax has been hired to prevent.  When the two private investigators meet: first comes attraction; then comes danger; third comes love; and last comes trust.

The third Private Eyes in Las Vegas (see The Next Right Thing) is a fabulous romantic mystery as Russian mobsters and a thief inadvertently play matchmakers.  Readers will take delight in this twisting tale.
