Readers who can accept a few jumps in logic and a tepid love story may find something entertaining in To Love a Thief. For me there just wasn’t enough to earn a higher rating.

Synopsis

It’s one thing to lose your heart. Quite another to have it stolen.

Steel Hawk, Book 1

Years ago, notorious jewel thief “The Raven” vanished into the shadows. In 1851, Nathan Hawk emerges into a life of respectability, determined to make up for past sins.

He and his business partner are introducing a lock they’re so sure can’t be broken, they’re displaying a priceless diamond, the Pasha Star, at the Great Exhibition. It’s bad enough catching a light-fingered young man trying to steal the stone. Worse when he realizes it’s the daughter of his old mentor.

Rose Valetta’s father has been kidnapped, and she needs the Star to buy his freedom. She never expected to come nose-to-nose with Nathan. Their reunion is fraught with tension, especially when they discover the diamond in Nathan’s impregnable case is not the Pasha Star.

With Nathan’s reputation in tatters, they race to find the real stone before it’s too late for Rose’s father. Too late to save the empire from a usurper. And too late to keep from losing their hearts.

Warning: Contains a woman who dreams of a world with a level playing field, and an ex-thief who can run from his past but can’t hide from it.
