A PRIZE BEYOND JEWELS (4.5) by Carole Mortimer: When a fiery redheaded designer walks into Rafe D’Angelo’s Archangel gallery, he knows his bachelor days are numbered. Not even her bodyguards or her powerful father can scare him or lessen his intense desire for her. Nina Palitov has been put in charge of the Archangel’s showing of her father’s private jewelry collection. If she could take charge of her lustful feelings toward the sexy, roguish gallery owner, her heart would be safer. Mortimer uses opulent New York City as her palette for an emotionally fraught romance with a mystery. Her heroine is complicated and spirited; her hero is tenacious with hidden depth. Their lively banter camouflages their fears and electrifies their lovemaking.
