Lasting Pride synopsis:
At almost eighteen years old, Roberta Stanton had grown up a thief, taught by her father, the best in the trade. Breaking into the old brick building was easy, the rewards had been high and she’d got away with it. Or so she’d thought, it had only cost her the lives of seven of her best friends.
Ten years later, now Rob found herself on the other side of the law. Tracking down the thieves of millions of dollars worth of art and getting attacked, was the least of her problems.
Ric Derby has spent his last ten years inventing himself and the Blue Spot, his art galleries. Now with five different “Spots” opened around the United States, he is finally in control of his life. What he didn’t expected to find, was his new assistant dead and several millions of dollars of art stollen. But, what really shocked him, is seeing the detective assigned to the case.
Then, they find out the theft is a personal vendetta. Meant to steal everything he’s worked hard for and trying to kill him in the process. Even trying to take away something that Ric had just found for the first time in his life, love.
