Alexandra Forest is unlike any librarian that art history professor Duncan Forbes has ever seen. With her short skirts and tight tops, she is a sight to behold. Duncan, the Indiana Jones of the art world, arrives in Oregon to check on a rumor that Frederick Forest has a long-lost Van Gogh. But Frederick is dead and Alexandra is the only one who might know the truth.

It is the body of a small-time art thief that brings Alex and Duncan closer together. While Alex can't seem to tolerate Duncan, she is still hot for him. And despite bizarre events (a gun turns up in Alex's desk; someone takes a shot at Duncan), Alex and Duncan can't keep their hands off each other.

A great mystery and one fast-paced sexy romp, with quick-witted dialogue and characters to adore, this book puts Warren on the to-buy list. (Feb., 320 pp., $14.00)
