From Publishers Weekly
Kitty Fontaine is 19th-century London's Queen of the Skies. By day, she is a world-famous aviatrix, by night a cat burglar now seeking the Blood of India ruby. Her only obstacle is Max "the Tiger" Aveli, another thief after the same prize. Kitty desperately needs the elusive jewel to save her father's life, while Max simply enjoys the thrill of robbing and seduction. When they are both apprehended by Scotland Yard, they are forced to work together to find the ruby. They travel to India, where Kitty was born, and soon they are steeped in local political intrigue, revolution and betrayal. Unable to deny her passion for Max, Kitty must accept that her only chance of survival lies in the hands of the one man she can't trust. O'Neal's (Written in the Stars) skillfully written adventure brims with smoldering sensuality. (Jan.)
