To Catch A Thief
by Nan Dixon


GENRE: Contemporary



What would you do for your family?

When Carolina Castillo’s once vivacious mother becomes ill, she gives up her singing dreams and
comes home to Savannah. She’d do anything for her Mamá, even work at Fitzgerald House for the
family she should have been part of. She’d even steal.

Carolina’s decisions make perfect sense until she comes up against the immovable rock that is gorgeous FBI agent Sage Cornell. The honorable cop sees the world in black-and-white. He would never understand the difficult choices she’s had to make, the secrets she’s been forced to keep close. And he could never love a woman like her. Or could he?

Guest Post

In TO CATCH A THIEF, I explore the theme of needing to choose between love and honor. Carolina, a lonely, illegitimate singer will do anything to comfort her terminally ill mother, even steal. But stealing is the last straw for Sage, the honor-seeking FBI agent she loves.
There are a number of layers to this dilemma. First, Carolina’s mother has been diagnosed with cancer. It has metastasized in her brain and her filters have disappeared. She asks Carolina to steal things from Fitzgerald House, the B&B. When Carolina hesitates, her mother is so stressed she begins having seizures.
Then there is the Carolina’ secret and Sage’s reaction to her concealment and the subsequent exposure. (I won’t say what’s exposed. You’ll need to read the book. ☺)
Finally, when Sage discovers Carolina has stolen a globe from Fitzgerald House he must choose between his love for her and his need to be honorable. Sage believes Carolina’s explanations are just excuses.
But love is powerful. All love. Community love. Family love. And romantic love.
I hope you like the story.

“I really appreciate you coming to the hospital.” How many times had Carolina said that already?

Sage slid closer. “I want to see you again.”

She could see the kiss coming.

He stopped inches from her face and asked, “Can I kiss you?”

“Yes.” Her single word was a whisper.

His lips were gentle. Sweet. Light pressure with a little scrape from his stubble.

“Nice,” he murmured, brushing kisses on her cheeks and eyes.

Her hands rested against his chest. “Really nice.”

Sage leaned in. His tongue licked the seam of her lips, seeking entrance.

She opened and stroked his tongue with hers. He tasted of coffee and mint and somethin
dark and sexy. His chocolate-citrus scent made her want to sip at his lips, kiss his eyelids and
nibble on his collarbone. She gripped his shoulders, the muscles hot under her hands.

He tipped her head and buried his fingers in her hair.

She fell hard into their kiss, wanting to explore the firm body beneath her fingers. “Sage.”

He pulled her closer.

Pain slashed her chest as her seat belt locked in place. "Ooh."

They laughed.

He cupped her cheek. “I guess your car is trying to tell us something.”

That she should take him up on his offer to come up to his apartment?

“I can meet you at the hospital in the morning,” Sage suggested. “Maybe we could have breakfast

Guilt had her sitting back behind the wheel. While kissing Sage, she’d forgotten about her
mother. “I’ll have to see what’s happening.”

“Sure. Sure.” He brushed another kiss on her lips, this one sweet and soft. “Will you let me know
when you get home? I don’t want to worry that you didn’t make it.”

Had anyone ever cared if she got home safely? “I’ll call.”
