A thirty-year-old secret. A forged painting. And an old enemy, out for revenge.

Samantha Caine

My life is finally coming together. My boyfriend’s moving home from Italy, my sister’s done her treatments, and I’m starting my first consulting job with the FBI’s Art Crime Team.

But instead of celebrating, I’m reeling over a secret I’ve uncovered about my father—one both my mother and my mentor hid my entire life. Add to that, Antonio’s father is launching a new art investigation company and neither of them told me. And to top it all off, a man’s arrived in town who apparently wants me dead.

I should have known I wasn’t destined for a happily ever after.

Antonio Ferraro, Ph.D.

All I want in the world is to return home from Napoli, take Samantha in my arms, and disappear for a few weeks. Perhaps even convince her to marry me.

But first, I’ll have to contend with the antiquities smuggler who’s after her. Repairing and authenticating potential forgeries for him goes against everything I believe in, but it’s a price I’m willing to pay in exchange for Samantha’s life.

I will do whatever it takes to protect her—and our future. No matter the consequences.

Stolen masterpieces, lifelong secrets, and unwavering devotion collide in this thrilling romantic suspense mystery.

Forging Caine is the fifth and final 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.
