Publisher's summary

She sets a thief to catch a thief. Will he also steal her heart?

Private investigator Helen Hu must team up with reformed art thief Reuben Costa to rescue her mother, who has vanished while trying to make amends for stealing some bejeweled eggs connected to the Amber Room.

Set in Greece and Italy, Once a Thief is Book 1 in USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Protector Sweethearts Christian romantic suspense series of books that showcase Private Investigator Helen Hu, her associates, and friends. This collection is a spinoff of Jan’s Savannah Sweethearts beach romance and Vacation Sweethearts travel romance collections.

Reuben’s Record…

To protect the woman he loves whom he cannot have because she is another man’s wife, Frederico Costa goes to prison and leaves his art theft crime organization to his only son, Reuben.

When his father dies in prison, Reuben vows to never love or marry. He pours the next several years into expanding his father’s activities across Europe, all the while sacrificing his own personal happiness.

Some years into Reuben’s incarceration, the FBI Art Crime Team and INTERPOL offer him an early release from prison and a second chance for a new life in Greece if he helps them to catch a bigger criminal. Reuben agrees, and is now a free man.
Until they require his services again. This time, he must visit his own family's past in order to help private investigator Helen Hu find her missing mother and twelve Petros eggs, keys to the lost Amber Room…

Helen’s Havoc…

Past memories have never been darker for Helen as she deals with a long-lost secret that her mother has hidden from their family for fifteen years. Afraid that it will shame her daughter, Mama Hu tries to fix what she has done and redeem herself. Unfortunately, as Helen fears, she disappears.

The best way for Helen to rescue her mother is to go underground where thieves and robbers live. Her only ticket into that nefarious world is another art thief. He says he is reformed. Is he, really?

As Helen and Reuben rush to find Mama Hu before the matriarch gets herself killed, the unlikely partners end up bargaining for not only life and death but also their own hearts and souls.
