darcy/steve mistaken identity au
In the criminal world, she is known only as La Comtesse—an art thief and sometimes-spy who sells the information she hears in the course of her work to the highest bidder. She is beautiful, impossibly elegant, and she has information that SHIELD wants. Steve is sent to bring her in, and he finds her just in time to foil a kidnapping attempt. There’s only one problem…
After a series of disastrous job interviews, Darcy doesn’t see the harm in delving into her cousin/roommate’s closet to play Successful Adult for one day. So she borrows her cousin’s nicest outfit, heads to the fanciest part of town and just…pretends. She never expects for a couple of goons to try to nab her off the street, or for Captain America to save her—and then keep her.
Steve’s at a loss. The woman with him is a dead ringer for La Comtesse, but anyone who spends five minutes in Darcy Lewis’ presence knows that she’s not the art thief. But as long as other people think she’s La Comtesse, she’s in danger.
He doesn’t expect her to be anything but someone to protect, but appearances can be deceiving. And attraction can flare up at the most inconvenient times. He’s got to keep her safe and find La Comtesse before it’s too late—for both women.
