But instead of catching the infamous thief Carson in the act, Detective Mackenzie Bennett unexpectedly finds herself falling for the charming and kind criminal.
Mackenzie gets smitten by Carson to the point where she starts to question whether he really is the thief or she is looking in the wrong place.
