Carefully guarded, untouchable – her heart was like a museum piece
James Elliott thwarted her at every turn, outmanoeuvring and outbidding her, scooping up art treasures before she could acquire them for San Francisco's Museum of American Art. Mary Lindsay McDonough decided to send him a letter of protest, a very cool, very professional letter – after she had written a poison pen letter – the letter she would have sent if she didn't have her reputation and that of the museum to consider. Unfortunately, distracted, she slipped the wrong letter into the envelope . . .

After two years of celibacy, Molly McDonough, assistant curator at a San Francisco antiquities museum, has met her match in James Elliott, acquisitions director for one of the world’s richest men. When James steals two of Molly’s finds, she’s incensed and writes him a scathing letter that she doesn’t mean to mail but does so by mistake. James retaliates, and the war is on. As everyone knows, all is fair in love and war. But as they battle for artworks and slowly fall in love, other aspects of their lives interfere. Molly’s father is remarrying after his wife’s death; Molly’s former lover, an artist, wants her back; and James’ boss is dying. As they deal with these setbacks, they battle for control over each other, even as they fight their attraction. Stuart steals a bit from Pride and Prejudice, and her word choices are a bit dated, but readers will delight in the lovers’ witty banter and this slightly skewed waltz of love, a 1984 classic available in hardcover for the first time. --Pat Henshaw
