Review: The Devil's Thief by Samantha Kane

Author: Samantha Kane
Publisher: Loveswept
Date of Publication: 

 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.

The Devil's Thief is the first book I have read by Ms. Kane.  It's the first in a new series published by Loveswept.  Just knowing Loveswept published it, I knew I was in for an enjoyable read.  I wasn't disappointed.   I loved the characters in the book.  Julianna and Alasdair were so perfect for each other.  While it was quick, their romance was very believable.  Their meeting helps them both to realize what id truly important.     

Along with the sweet romance, the peripheral characters, namely Alasdair's friends, made the book for me.  I loved the rapport between the men.  There are some very humorous exchanges that had me laughing.   Also, Ms. Kane does have a way with writing a love scene. They were well written and very sensual.  

This was a pretty quick read for me.  I think any lover of historical romance will enjoy this book.  Definitely give it a try!
