Art & Soul
When Penelope Mallory murders Rollyn Rys' painting, he has no choice but to track her down. After all, Rollie is a spy, frequently out of town while saving the world. He can't have people like Pen running around, devaluing art, particularly when his family maintains several of the most prestigious galleries in town. Things go terribly wrong, and instead of warning her away, Rollie somehow ends up instilling her in the Rys Gallery, where she can be nothing but trouble. He vanishes to parts unknown after giving her the best job of her life, but without arranging for her paycheck. Pen is near destitute when she decides she must take steps. Challenges arise when one of the Gallery's newest acquisitions takes on an evil cast, and Pen realizes it needs only her touch to set it loose to wreak havoc. Demon or not, havoc abounds as Rollie determines that whatever Pen's effect on pieces of art, her touch is something he can't live without or can he?
