Stealing a diamond to save the world is the easy part. Mishael Taylor takes comfort in speed, racing from one mission to another as Allegro, one of the Elite Operative Organization's top agents--or from one affair to another, to avoid having to think about the things she's seen and done. Cocky, confident, and used to winning, Mishael confronts her greatest challenge when she's assigned to steal the priceless Blue Star Diamond from Dutch countess Kristine Marie van der Jagt. Not only must she win a high-stakes race with Arab terrorists and Neo-Nazis, she also has to contend with a target who has somehow managed to steal her heart. Second in the romantic intrigue series: Elite Operatives.
