eBook Description: In this modern retelling of a fairy tale classic, Goldie Lax is a safecracking prodigy who learned her craft from her father and her grandfather before him. When she pairs up with Richard Campbell, who can hack any system, together they make the perfect team, mixing both business and pleasure. When Goldie's grandfather, who survived the holocaust only to end up a nursing home in his eighties, tells her about a horrific crime that robbed a good friend of his family's inheritance, Goldie enlists Campbell's help to recover the diamonds. The three Behr brothers have stolen something too precious for words and Goldie, safecracker extraordinaire, and Campbell, their head of security, have hatched a foolproof scheme to get it back, but the long, involved plan may just complicate their relationship beyond repair.

"...sexy, bawdy, naughty, but guaranteed to turn you on. A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Goldilocks is a great read!" -Patrizia M., Manic Readers Reviews, 4.5/5 Stars!
"You can't go wrong with Ms. Kitt...her writing brings to life what she is describing...This is definitely not the fairy tale you remember from grammar school, that Goldilocks tale was never this hot. I happily recommend this excellent book..." -Celtic Debbie, The Romance Studio, 5/5 Hearts!
"Most people go to Brazil to work on their tan." Goldie sighed, watching Campbell use his iPhone to bypass the alarm system. She kicked at a Styrofoam cup in the alleyway, startling a cat--or a really big rat--behind a dumpster. It bolted in the darkness and her heart jumped in her chest in spite of her outward calm."
"We can do that later." He glanced up at her and then nodded at the door. "It's all yours."
"Promises, promises." She unholstered the drill out of her belt like a six-shooter, making quick work of the bolt. No alarm went off. The cameras on the side of the building had already been disabled, thanks to Campbell. "Is there a night guard?"
"Nope." He swung the door wide and they went into the back entrance of the bank, down a dark hallway lit red by the emergency exit light behind them. "Yet another oversight."
"You know, a lot of people go on their honeymoon in Brazil," she suggested hopefully.
Campbell didn't take the bait.
"The safe?" She could feel it, could almost taste it, heavy gauge steel, lever like a roulette wheel waiting to be spun--everyone place your bets, who's going to get lucky tonight? But Goldie didn't need luck.
"Through here." Campbell was playing with his phone again, glancing up at the security cameras. The red lights on them were off.
Goldie drilled through another door, this one with two bolts. She heard the secondary locking mechanism at the bottom and swore under her breath.
"They got a backup," Goldie warned him, already feeling around on her belt. She found what she was looking for, pulling out the hand-held plasma saw.
Campbell raised his eyebrows. "Nifty gadget."
"You know I love my toys." She smirked, grabbing her goggles off her belt and pulling them on. "Step back."
He did as he was told, getting out of her way as she pressed the trigger, waiting for it to spark. She was through the secondary lock in less than ten seconds and Campbell pulled the door open, revealing the vault room behind it.
"Pretty." Goldie pulled her goggles off to get a better look. "Dual combination. I assume it's on a timer?"
