CAT BURGLAR IN TRAINING
By Shelley Munro
Eve Fawkner had no intention of following in her father’s footsteps. But when the thugs harassing him to repay his gambling debts threaten her young daughter, Eve is forced to assume the role of London’s most notorious cat burglar, The Shadow. The plan is simple: pull off a couple of heists, pay back the goons and go into permanent retirement. But things get messy during her first job when Eve witnesses a murder, stumbles across a clue that sheds some light on her past and, worst of all, falls for a cop.
Inspector Kahu Williams would be the perfect man, if Eve were looking, and if there wasn’t the little matter of their career conflict. The man is seriously hot—and hot on the trail of a murderer. A trail that keeps leading him back to Eve…

Here are our hero and heroine.....
Meet Eve Fawkner: Eve is twenty-four years old. She’s the daughter of Viscount Oakthorpe and possesses her own title but prefers not to use it. The mother of a five-year-old daughter, she’s spent the last six years living in France, but on her return to England she re-enters the social whirl, attending balls and acting the vapid socialite. While her busty, blonde image fits the stereotype, she’s intelligent and witty, fiercely protective of her family and friends, and fills the role of The Shadow, a cat burglar.
Meet Kahu Williams: Kahu is a New Zealand cop, and he’s traveled to England to search for his younger brother. He’s signed a contract to work in England and is investigating the murder of Perdita Moning. His investigations take him to society balls, and this is where he meets the very sexy Lady Eve Fawkner. Eve is with a man and out of bounds, but there is something about her that intrigues him. Yes, he can’t stop thinking about Eve.
