The Devil's Theif by Samantha Kane

Thursday, November 8, 2012

SYNOPSIS: 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 Sharp 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
REVIEW: The Devil’s Thief was enticing from the start. Samantha Kane does an amazing job at taking us back into the 1800s, where life back then was tremendously different. When Julianna decides to break into Alasdair Sharp’s bedroom with one mission in mind- to steal the pearl, the last thing she expected was to wind up spending an evening in bed with the man. Samantha knows deep down that Alasdair has no intention of keeping his end of the bargain and sneaks out as soon as she possibly could-with the pearl in hand. Alasdair awakens the next day and two things come to light; his family heirloom is gone and he is angry but more importantly Samantha is gone. Alasdair’s emotions are raging off the charts; sure he has taken many women to bed but none of them affected him the way Samantha did. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and loved everything it had to offer. Both of the main characters change right before your eyes through the story. Although you don’t actually read about Alasdair’s womanizing days, you hear quite a bit about them. So you can easily follow his transformation. Samantha, the quiet, shy girl turned thief turned a woman in love. I love how passionate she is when it comes to the orphaned children she cares for in the foundling home and is willing to do whatever it takes to provide for them. Even stealing a prized jewel from the man across the street. This book offers seduction, humor, and love. And on more than one time had me silently laughing to myself.
