Take Me Two Times by Karen Kendall is the second book in the ARTemis romantic suspense series about an agency that recovers stolen art. Publisher: Signet, April 2009
New to the art recovery world, agent Gwen Davies takes on her very first repo assignment for ARTemis, Inc.: restoring a solid gold, bejeweled Venetian mask to its rightful owner. But she’s mortified to find that she’s stolen back a carefully engineered fake, and the disappointed client is a man she’d hope never to see again.
Quinn Lawson’s clean-cut corporate image belies his troubled, tattooed, bad-boy past. But when he’s held accountable for the missing mask, he’s forced to return to his shady ways and team up with Gwen in order to find the real one. Unfortunately the mask’s centuries-old curse is alive and well—and so is the stranger who’s prepared to kill for the mask. As their quest takes Quinn and Gwen through the twisting romantic canals of old Venice, danger forces them closer together than they ever expected to be—again.
This was a very enjoyable story through the streets of Florida to Venice. My rating: 3.5 stars
