Rich, gorgeous Whitney MacAllister possesses all the wealth and beauty every woman dreams of. Reckless Whitney likes fast cars, vintage movies, and dangerous men. But even this jaded, high-living Manhattan socialite is taken by surprise when a stranger in black leather hijacks her Mercedes--just before the bullets start flying. Streetwise Douglas Lord has the good looks and quick wits to be a success at his chosen profession: larceny. International jewel thief Douglas is used to living life on the run--part of the lure of his chosen profession is the thrill of the chase. But he has one iron-clad rule: he always works alone. Until now.
Wounded and in desperate need of cash for what could be the glittering crown of his dazzling career, Doug reluctantly accepts the wealthy, well-connected Whitney as his new partner in crime. With the papers screaming headlines about the missing New York heiress, and a gang of cunning criminals in hot pursuit, Doug and Whitney take off for the sultry wilds of Madagascar in search of a fabulous treasure dating back to the French Revolution.
But the race to find the treasure, from Manhattan to Madagascar, is only part of the game. For Whitney, what began as a high-speed adventure becomes a race between life and death as she tries to outmaneuver a pack of merciless killers who coolly eliminate anyone in their way. For Doug, who has been betrayed one time too many, it's a chance to capture the elusive pot of gold and perhaps one final shot at redemption. For both of them, it's an exotic quest for meaning--and a surrender to an irresistible passion worth any risk--as a deadly high-stakes game is played out to its terrifying conclusion, one that may have no winners or losers. Or survivors.

This novel was wonderful and entertaining! It was exciting and action-packed right from the very beginning. I absolutely love the personalities & attitudes of the main characters, including the character build-up of the other characters as well. Together, it formed a true plot that evoked so many emotions: I was sad one moment, then in suspense, and happy & blissful the next, but never calm, because there was always something going on as the characters were never safe from the villains. :] Did I mention, there was A LOT of humor. The bickering between the two main characters is hilarious!
