About A Devils Thief by Samantha Kane
In Samantha Kane’s sensual tale of wicked passion, a desperate woman must resort to burglary-but the beautiful thief ends up stealing the heart of a rogue.
The daughter of a reformed jewel thief, Julianna Harte knows a thing or two about stealth. When the foundling home she provides for finds itself in dire financial straits, Julianna is forced to do the unthinkable. In a bit of misguided Robin Hood derring-do, she slips through the window of a wealthy rake to search for a treasure she knows is there: an invaluable pearl. But when the towering and very naked occupant of the moonlit bedroom ambushes her with a bargain-a night in his bed in exchange for the pearl-Julianna doesn’t know if it’s masculine heat or sheer desperation that makes his terms so tempting.
Alasdair Sharpe had no intention of keeping his end of the bargain. Planning to offer his little cat burglar carte blanche instead, he promptly loses himself in the delights of unexpected pleasure. But when he awakes the next morning to find his family heirloom gone, fury quickly replaces sensual languor. Of course, Alasdair is more than willing to use seduction to reclaim his stolen pearl-and find the key to Julianna’s heart.
My Review of The Devils Thief: Publication Date November 12th 2012
This was a very fun and entertaining book to read! Julianna is a very developed character when we meet her. She has a history she is already hiding, she has interest beyond trying to catch a man and she’s intelligent. Something that even in current times can be lacking in women.
What I love most about this book is that the female character is really more of a male role for the period this is written. She’s a thief, involved in business and can do things on her own.
Alasdair, (who doesn’t love that name!) is also an interesting character. He’s not the typical guy that the heron normally goes after, but he’s fun, handsome and has a few problems of his own and that’s before he even meet Julianna!
Overall I give this book a 5 out of 5 for a romance novel this is a very good read and full of fun and a little wickedness!
