Kate Kelly is another of the authors represented in the Romance Super Bundle, 10 contemporary, historical, and romantic suspense novels available right now for a mere .99 cents. 

Kate has had a love affair with books her entire life. She finaled in the RWA Golden Heart and is the recipient of the RWA Daphne du Maurier award. She has the good fortune to live on the east coast of Canada with her husband (the children have flown away.) She writes, grow herbs and perennials, and sails when the wind blows her way. Learn more about Kate at her website.

Kate is here today to tell us where she got the idea for Sleight of Hand, her contribution to the Romance Super Bundle.

In 1990, a theft of thirteen paintings occurred in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. The crime is still unsolved and the spaces where those 13 paintings used to hang are still empty. To me, that’s an invitation to a thousand what-ifs. Sleight of Hand is the story I fabricated of what happened to those paintings and why they were stolen. I like to think there are people like Chance Spencer in this world.

Sleight of Hand
Suddenly suspected of stealing half a million dollars of original paintings, Chance Spencer can't afford to have the FBI delve too closely into his covert past. When one agent in particular endeavors to put him behind bars, Chance coerces the real thief's daughter, Sarah O'Sullivan, into helping him flush her wily father out of hiding. But his plan quickly deteriorates when the stakes for his freedom soar. How can he ruthlessly use the woman with whom he's falling in love?

I remember reading about that heist. What a great idea for a romance novel.
