Publisher's Summary

Just because the marriage is fake doesn't mean the attraction is...

Delilah Barrett is a head-turning beauty on a quest for justice. She's made a career of recovering stolen rare books with her private detective firm. She's level-headed, smart, cool under pressure...and entirely unprepared for her new assignment.

When a centuries-old book worth an astronomical fortune disappears from Philadelphia's Franklin Museum, Delilah is paired up with Henry Finch, a brilliant rare book librarian and celebrated academic. Their orders: Go undercover as a married couple and recover the book by whatever means necessary.

Henry can speak four languages and wear a suit like he was born in Armani. But he's never squared off against criminals. Never operated in this underground society of glamour and greed. And he's certainly never pretended to be married to a woman who both dazzles and distrusts him.

Delilah's keen instincts are her greatest gift, but her growing attraction to the sexy librarian is messing with her head. Every feigned caress, every for-the-audience kiss only heightens the seduction, building a fire that refuses to extinguish. As the danger intensifies, so does the temptation to let their fake desire become real. With a priceless artifact at stake, can this undercover couple learn to trust each other...before it's too late?

Contains mature themes.

Rarified Air

Dark and twisted passageways. Ancient libraries filled with light spangled dust motes. A verdant rooftop garden. Glittering ballrooms. Museums holding the world’s most precious works of art. This is the world of Henry Finch and Delilah Barrett. Working for Codex, the mysterious company that discretely recovers stolen rare books for a price. A world filled with gray areas and questionable characters masquerading as philanthropists.
I loved the way Henry and Delilah were equally matched in their respective fields, at the same time feeling out of depth in each other’s worlds. Delilah teaching Henry about crime, trust, and detective work, while he teaches her about the rare books they are tasked with recovering.
Once again, Kathryn Nolan immerses her readers in a world filled with texture and depth, longing looks and lingering touches, dazzling prose and characters we helplessly fall in love with. Even the characters we shouldn’t. And once again, leaving me breathless with the beauty of a perfectly crafted love story, this time wrapped in suspense!
The narration by Mia Madison and Leon Nixon really amps up this story, it’s superbly done!

Great story

Holy. Wow. This book sucked me in and didn't let go. Twists, turns, and a fake marriage all rolled into an epic story. Full of suspense, this is another must read book by Nolan. Leon Nixon & Mia Madison are fabulous narrators and voice artists. They do an amazing job portraying the characters, bringing them to life and humanizing them with their emotions, attitude and personality.

Looking forward to more in the series!

Loved this listen! Kathryn Nolan wrote such a great romantic suspense, and I can't wait for more in the Codex Series!

Mia Madison and Leon Nixon did a great job narrating Henry and Delilah. Kathryn Nolan wrote a novel with such electric chemistry between our two main characters, as well as great friendships with their other Codex co-workers. The plot was so intriguing and fast moving, and I loved every minute of it.
