Blog Tour of Reluctant Smuggler by Jill Elizabeth Nelson and Aussie Giveaway!


Looting of archaeological sites is big business in a thriving art and antiquities black market. When a desperate foreign government hires Desiree Jacobs’s security company to stop the hemorrhage, she runs afoul of a deadly art-for-drugs operation. Tony Lucano risks his rising career in the FBI to dive into the international underworld after her. Before either of them can come up for air, they must navigate through a deepening murk of ruthless looters, hair-trigger DEA agents, crooked government agents, and innocent bystanders caught up in an illegal trade beyond their understanding. Even if a miracle delivers Desi and Tony from evil, will their love survive the test?

Complete with a reader’s guide, this third book in the To Catch a Thief series explores the power of hope in the darkest of circumstances.

Thanks so much for featuring Reluctant Runaway on your blog. I hope my readers have at least as much fun reading the book as I did writing it!

Excellent Blessings,

I have not long since finished 'Reluctant Burglar' and absolutely loved it. Can't wait to read the rest of this series!

Could you put me in the draw?

And the famous painting I've seen. Hmmm....golly. I've only been to the NGV twice in my life (yeah, I'm not art person) and I do remember seeing some beautiful paintings by Monet. I love his stuff. Muted gardens with gentle colours suits me better than a Picasso!

Angela said...

Rel, I have to agree, I too have seen the Mona Lisa painting and wow, I had to lean in close (not that you can get too close) to see much at all.

I've seen Picasso's works.

Please add my name to the hat

Tamara Leigh said...

Wow! Sounds like another winner. I thoroughly enjoyed "Reluctant Burglar". Another one for my TBR list!

I'm not really into art, so I guess I'd like to go and see the Mona Lisa.

Sounds like a good book so please add me in too.I love Micheal Angelos work especially the Sistine chapel.

Naomi said...

I don't really know which one I would like to see either. But I know I would love to go to the Louvre and see them all.

Jen said...

Not sure there is one particular art piece I want to see but I did enjoy looking at some of Monet's work in Europe and liking them. Ta Rel

Nolene said...

I know nothing about art. So the only thing I can think of is that I would like to actually see some of Da Vinici's work(not necessarily the Mona Lisa) and also Michael Angelo's apparently magnificent things.

Even though I am not into art. I love these books and can't wait for this one!
