Diamonds Under the Mistletoe
The High-End Jeweler
Winter Janvier’s life falls apart just when he thinks he’s on top of the world. With only hours to spare, he completes a dazzling necklace worth a small fortune for the madam who operates the Courtesan Hotel. He’s delighted to ship the jewelry off with a courier, then heads out to celebrate. There is only one problem: the necklace never reaches the hotel and the madam is furious.
The Ex-Cop Turned Murderer
RJ Chandler became a criminal the minute he dedicated his life to getting revenge on the man who slit his throat. The scar he carries reminds him of his new life’s purpose. Unfortunately, he still needs to pay bills, so he works for the madam as an all-around fix-it man. When he is sent to bring Winter Janvier to her, he is struck by Winter’s insistence that he is innocent—and his beauty. Winter swears he would never steal from the madam. RJ wants to believe Winter is telling the truth, so he promises to help find the real thief to buy Winter some time.
Uncovering the Culprit
RJ is suspicious of Winter, but Winter is sweet, which makes RJ want to help. RJ hopes he isn’t making the same mistake twice; he has been fooled before by a pretty face. Will RJ get over his cynical nature to believe in Winter and help him recover the jewelry he owes the madam? Or will RJ end up putting a bullet in a man he is falling for?
