A Touch of Minx – Suzanne Enoch

Enoch, Suzanne. A Touch of Minx. (New York: Avon, 2007). ISBN – 9780060875237.

Main Characters: Samantha Jellicoe & Richard Addison

Related Works: This book is part of a series of works about Sam & Rick. The first is Flirting with Danger; the second is Don’t Look Down; the third is Billionaires Prefer Blondes; the fourth is the story “Diamonds are Not a Girl’s Best Friend” from the anthology Twice the Temptation; and A Touch of Minx is the fifth story of the series.

Description from book:

Who says crime doesn’t pay?

A year ago, Samantha Jellicoe robbed from the rich and gave . . . to herself! Now, though, she’s using her larcenous skills for good as a private security consultant, trying to walk the high road for her sexy billionaire boyfriend, Richard Addison, and asking herself if there’s anything more torturous than tracking down priceless artifacts (only to give them back!).

So when the Metropolitan Museum of Art asks for her help, she’s only too happy to leap into the fray again: If nothing else, this adventure will help her avoid that little (not!) sparkly item Rick’s been hiding in his pocket, and postpone another kind of walk—down the aisle. It’s only when she’s targeted by a deadly adversary after the same treasure that Sam starts to think that “till death do you part” is maybe the lesser of two evils . . .

My Thoughts:

As a huge fan of Suzanne Enoch’s historical romances, I resisted reading these contemporary tales until recently. I was convinced that I wouldn’t like them. I was totally wrong. Samantha Jellicoe is an incredibly endearing character – and who wouldn’t love a rich, titled British hunk. Their relationship is wonderful. Sam has a unique personality. I love that she keeps an escape backpack at the ready in case of an emergency. Rick, meanwhile, worries about whether Sam will be able to walk the straight and narrow. I love the scene where Rick empties out her escape backpack. I have since gone back and read the entire series – and am looking forward to forthcoming titles.
