Behind the Veil by Kathryn Nolan

11/05/2021

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?

Author's Note: If fake marriage, closet sex, secret passages, guns and garter belts, high-society galas, mysterious code words, and danger pushes your pleasure buttons Behind the Veil is for you!

Books in the contemporary fiction genre are composed of stories that may happen to real people in actual settings. The novels don't fall under other genres or categories. They often happen in precisely the same period that the reader is living (the present), with things that are now, or might be occurring, precisely the same period. The contemporary genre also contains conversational and casual dialogue and sometimes even regional dialects. Contemporary fiction novels will provide you a lot of choices to grow your life reading list. Writers, generally speaking, search for what's trending in their own time for their literary work since it lets them illuminate the weakness or strength of the society.
