Brenda Sue Radisson, alias ‘Bones’, has every intention of “reacquiring” three precious Monet paintings stolen from her father in a crooked card game four years earlier. She congratulates herself on a job well done once the second one is in her safe keeping.

On the fateful day she steals back the second painting, a mysterious stranger with campfire smoke eyes appears in her casino. When she finds out he is a detective, she wonders if the fates could really be that cruel? If true love has finally found her, their odious timing couldn’t be worse! She has one more painting to acquire, and she just knows that Mister Campfire Smoke Eyes would never approve of her self-imposed mission.

Flynn Chambers, an art forensics specialist, has been summoned to Reno to investigate the theft of a valuable Monet painting. On the very day of his arrival, a second Monet is stolen, and the trail soon leads to the beautiful owner of The Lonely Angel casino. He finds himself entranced with the girl they call Bones, but he is sorely afraid she is destined for prison life if he can’t find a way to help her. The problem is, the feisty Bones is fighting him on every front and refusing to trust him or cooperate with him. Frustrated, he decides what she really needs is a firm hand applied to her backside for pulling such a crazy stunt. But all in good time.
