In author Samantha Kane’s new novel The Devil's Thief we meet Lady Julianna Harte. Julianna is the provider of a foundling home and behind on the rent. In the hopes of gaining the back-owed rent money she decides to take up the past family business and steal her wealthy neighbor’s family heirloom: the renowned Stewart Pearl.
When she is caught pretty much red-handed by the owner of said pearl, Alasdair Sharpe, she does not know what to do, and not just because he is naked and holding a gun. She is surprised when he offers her a deal, one that allows her to keep the pearl.
One night in his bed and the pearl is hers.
Alasdair never had any intention of keeping his deal with the little thief that came to lift him of the Stewart Pearl. He did however intend to have her and then provide for her from there on after. When he finds she is, or was, a virgin he is horrified and angry as he thought her a street woman. Then more than ever he was determined to care and provide for her. Too bad Julianna did not know that.
After a night of passion that leaves a mark on them both, like the she came to be, Julianna disappears into the night—with the Stewart Pearl.
When he wake the next morning Alasdair is angry and embarrassed that it was ‘stolen’. For help he goes to his friend Sir Hilary St. John for help in tracking her down and their fiend, and fellow 'Devil', Roger Templeton joins the hunt.
This is the start of a very interesting and at times amusing historical romance novel. Kane blends romance and amusement well together giving us something sexy but also a book that hand me laughing at the characters antics as well.
Julianna does sell the pearl but then feels horrible about it as her feelings for Alasdair grow and she fears he will never love her unless she gives it back for him. Unfortunately the horrid man she sold it to will not sell it back to her for the price she was given for it. Instead he wants double that and Julianna just does not have that kind of money; which was what landed her in the predicament to begin with.
So she decides to seal the pearl back from the very dangerous man she sold it to. Need I even say that she is a terrible thief? Or was that obvious when she was caught the first time? I think the worst part is that Julianna thinks she is a great thief!
I liked Julianna and Alasdair they made a great couple and you could pretty much see that Alasdair was infatuated with her and half-way in love from the start even if he does not realize it. While there is sex in this book a lot of the scenes do fade-to-black but there are some pretty hot sex scenes (one that comes to mind in particular involving a desk...* shivers*) in it that does not fade-to-black.
At times erotic while at others funny I have to say that The Devil's Thief is a wonderfully quick read that I would recommend to anyone who likes historical romance.
I am looking forward to the rest of the ‘Devils’ novels. We cannot forget about Alasdair’s two friends after all and I am thrilled that they are going to get books. Well, I know for a fact one of them is getting a book, Roger Templeton. Described as looking like a Greek god, his book Tempting a Devil is slated for release on
However, Sir Hilary St. John was an enigma and I do love mysterious men!
