Suddenly, the woman with no permanent ties finds herself almost wishing for one... Artist Ashton Archer knows his brother isn’t capable of violence—against himself or others.

Chalking up their intense attraction to the heat of the moment, Lila agrees to help Ash try to find out who murdered his brother and why. From the penthouses of Manhattan to grand Italian villas, their investigation draws them into a rarefied circle where priceless antiques are bought, sold, gambled away and stolen; where what you possess is who you are; and where what you desire becomes a deadly obsession...

Download and read online The Collector in PDF and EPUB She lies in a pool of her own blood. More blood decorates one wall in macabre finger paintings. The victim is a fortune-teller from the Little Saigon community of Westminster, California—it's a seemingly random murder. Detective Seven Bushard wonders cynically if she saw it coming. When local artist Gia Moon shows up at the precinct with visions of another murder yet to happen, Seven doesn't buy it. Some say Gia's paintings give a glimpse into the next world, but all Seven knows is cold, hard evidence. Then when her prediction comes true, he's left looking six ways from incompetent, and worse—now it's a serial killer he's after. But Gia is not all that she seems. A link to her past points to a deranged lunatic whose desire to complete a bizarre collection has become an obsession. Now Seven is locked in a game of greed and murder with a woman he can't entirely trust, and a killer who will silence anyone who gets in the way.
