A mysterious painting. A madman with a gun. And a Christmas Sam and Antonio won’t soon forget.

Samantha Caine

All I need is to get through the holidays, then Antonio will finally be home from Naples. So when a friend brings a suspicious painting to my attention, I’m happy for a distraction.

Not as happy about the attempt on my friend’s life just after she tells me.

Then to make matters worse, Antonio’s contract in Italy is extended by another four months.

Antonio Ferraro, Ph.D.

Desperate to see Samantha again, I surprise her with a last-minute Christmas visit. But our reunion’s cut short by a shooting.

Someone’s after her, and I suspect it’s related to the painting she insists on searching for. Despite the danger, she won’t call her FBI Art Crimes mentor until she’s gathered enough evidence.

I swore to be her partner in all things. But I worry that helping with her investigation puts both of us in the line of fire, instead of keeping her safe.

Love, revenge, and family secrets collide in this action-packed romantic suspense mystery.

Disarming Caine is the third installment in the Caine & Ferraro series, featuring a strong heroine, an Italian love interest, and an art-world mystery in every book. The main couple is together from book one, with no cheating and no cliffhangers.
