A follow-up to The Ultimatum finds Bianca St. Ives dodging would-be assassins while searching for a priceless collection of artifacts and collecting intelligence capable of destroying her enemies. 100,000 first printing. - (Baker & Taylor)
Clever, cunning and highly skilled—there’s only one Bianca St. Ives and don’t you dare forget it.
Bianca St. Ives was recently put through the wringer, but she came out the same way she always does—the way her father trained her to—hungry for a fight. Still navigating the fallout from a shocking revelation that’s left a network of assassins’ crosshairs trained on her, Bianca’s ready to take fate into her own hands. It’s kill or be killed, and she’s got her finger flush against the trigger.
But as Bianca races to outmaneuver her tireless pursuers, her father loops her in on a job that might just do the trick: recover King Priam’s Treasure, a collection of heavily guarded, priceless artifacts stolen by the Russians during World War II, and return it to Germany. Impossible? Maybe for some, but a high-risk heist is all in a day’s work for Bianca St. Ives, especially when there’s intel on the line—intel that could finally bring down the shadowy forces seeking to bury Bianca for good. Faced with threats that circle closer with every move she makes, she knows the stakes have never been higher, but when you’re already living on borrowed time, you have to hustle if you want to live to see tomorrow. - (Harlequin)
In this follow-up to The Ultimatum (2017), security expert Bianca St. Ives must steal a heavily guarded European treasure in order to save her own life. As a baby, Bianca was stolen from the lab where she and 40 other infants, bred to have superhuman powers, were being kept. She alone survived and was raised by the man who rescued her and her "biological" mother. Now the government will stop at nothing to erase all evidence of their experiment, and Bianca has a bounty on her head. So she's off to the casinos of Macau to rendezvous with the only man who can help her. But first she has to wriggle out of the clutches of a sexy agent who claims he's on her side. From the custom-weapon garter belt to the museum-hacking circus troupe, this delightfully over-the-top thriller is a mile-a-minute adventure. Fans of improbable spy fiction will eat it up.
