Passion and emotion still
run hot with the undeniably dynamic duo of Rick and Sam. Kick back as the superbly talented Enoch stirs the pot yet again for this mismatched pair. Their emotional tug of war hits a high note as they continue to butt heads over Sam's adventures; but that just means loads more high jinks and action!

It's the one-year anniversary of the time ex-cat burglar Samantha Jellicoe and billionaire Rick Addison met. Although they appear to be polar opposites, Rick is adamant about wanting Sam permanently in his life - it's convincing the skittish Sam that will be the trick. Focusing her efforts on her new law-abiding career, Sam winds up with two cases: the first is trying to recover ancient Japanese armor and swords stolen from the Met a decade ago. The second is at the request of Rick's 10-year-old almost-niece who wants the "anatomy man" stolen from her school returned. Neither case turns out to be simple, but one could get dangerously nasty.
