some of the world’s most talented criminal minds. Because as
everyone knows, it takes a thief to catch a thief—or to seduce one. . .
thief Josephine Deveraux. Admittedly, there aren’t many men in the
vicinity, but she has her cat to cuddle up with. It’s a far cry
from her former life, constantly running from the law, and she’s
enjoying her peace . . . until the intruder in the three-piece suit
tackles her. He wants her back in the game, helping with a heist—and
he’s not above making threats to get his way.
Xavier Lambert, is after the very same 180-carat prize she’s being
blackmailed to steal. To his chagrin, he’s doing it not as a free
agent, but as a member of the Elite Crimes Unit—the team he was
forced to join when his brilliant career came to a sudden end. And
little does Xavier know that his comeback is about to include a
stranger’s kiss, a stinging slap, and a hunt for missing
treasure—along with the infuriatingly sexy woman who’s outfoxing him . . .
This was simply an amazing and astonishing story! It gave me the feeling that I really want to know all that is possible about the characters. I loved the main character, he is a hero and at the same time thief or special agent.
The story starts with Josephine Deveraux who is a retired thief or at least she thought so. The problem is, she’s blackmailed by her ex to try and steal a diamond. When she goes to try and steal it, she is surprised by the appearing of Xavier Lambert who works for the Elite Crimes Unit.
This is where the story develops, because both Josephine and Xavier are after the big prize. They both have different reasons, the problem is Xavier wants the stone because he is working off his jail time, and because of this particular reason he cannot leave Elite Crimes Unit. He really has to get the diamond so he pushes Josephine to help him.
This was a really great story and I highly recommend The Thief to anyone who enjoys a good romantic and suspense story, which has a lot of twists and turns. I loved the story and I can’t wait to read more stories written from Michele Hauf. Thank you for the opportunity!
