I’m so excited for THE THIEF, which is released in April. RTBookReviews really liked it and gave it a Top Pick! This will be available digitally or in paperback format (which you can pre-order now). Here’s the review:
Hauf’s story is chock-full of non-stop action and excitement as both characters constantly try to escape one another and the bad guys. The action of the story is an equal partner to the romance. Hauf does a particularly nice job with characterization. Xavier is a supremely sexy thief, and his attraction to former thief Josephine is hot. Josephine is quite well-drawn as a strong woman who’s not afraid to go after what she wants. Their mutual attraction rings quite true.
Former jewel thief Josephine Deveraux lives in the French countryside until her past comes to haunt her in the form of an ex-boyfriend who catnaps her pet in order to force her to steal a necklace for him. But when she attempts the steal, she discovers that Xavier Lambert, a thief formerly known as The Fox but who now works for the Elite Crimes Unit, has gotten there before her, and she must steal the necklace from him. Things get even more complicated when the two learn the necklace has the key to releasing a chemical agent in Paris that will kill huge numbers of people, and they must work together to stop that from happening.
