London's most talented criminal is about to be fingered...

Touch of a Thief by Mia Marlowe

Lady Viola Preston can relieve a gentleman of the studs at his wrists without his being any the wiser and pick any lock devised by man in less than a minute. But she's careful to wear gloves when she steals jewels. Because when Viola touches a gemstone, it "speaks" to her, sending disturbing visions--visions almost as unsettling as the sight of the cool-eyed stranger who catches her red handed.

Now Viola will only be stealing at Greydon Quinn's behest. And even more daunting than the violent history of the red diamond he's after is the prospect of a night in the devastatingly handsome lieutenant's arms. Touch has always been Viola's weakness and the full body-to-body contact Quinn has in mind is about to shatter her defenses and set her senses reeling.

My Thoughts

I could re-read this book in a heart beat, it's that good. I really like the character of Viola because she doesn't lower herself to become a prostitute, but becomes a thief instead to help her family. The cousin of Viola had no right to not support his own family, just because the Earl didn't sire a son. Quinn is another matter because I like him, but at the same time I didn't like him until closer to the end. Viola and Quinn have so much sexual tension between them that even Sanjay can tell. Now when it comes to Sanjay, I really like him, he's witty and fun. He's not afraid to speak his mind to Quinn even though he is a prince. The whole thing with Viola being able to touch a jewel and be able to hear it and see visions is a little far fetched for me, but it is different. I'm glad that Quinn and Viola were able to work out their problems and except them for each other as they are.
