Marguerite Rousseau was forced into a double life that she leads. During the day, she’s known as the Le Voleur D’or, the golden thief. And at night, she’s subjugated to that of a servant to an evil, malevolent oppressor.
Kane watched from afar as the golden haired beauty lured her victims to complacency until they find themselves stripped off their riches. When an opportunity afforded him the chance to uncover the real Marguerite, Kane was surprised with how familiar she was with his secret life. Though his kind is something she has no knowledge of, there are certainly other creatures
This is my intro to Lisa Kessler’s literary world. Historical Paranormal Romance is quite a novelty in my shelves so I wasn’t at all expecting the surprise I got in this novella. What I got was a story that gave everything it had promised without giving me an impression that I’d missed something. Romance, suspense and a glimpse at an opulent world darkened by the creatures that stalked their preys at night.
Her immortal characters are derivative of vampires whose appetites tend to favour those who didn’t deserve to live. And while they audaciously consider themselves judge, jury and executioner, I’m all for vigilante justice.
The romance was as good and surprisingly not lacking in steam for a book so slight. The characters’ mutual attractions were as natural as Lisa’s writing. I’m more inclined to check out the rest of the series after reading this little bitty. I just know that there’s a lot more in store with interesting characters that I’m dying to get to know.
Night Thief was the perfect introduction to this series. It will whet your appetite just so that you would crave the subsequent books before you even finish this one. I, for one, have just become a follower.
