With surprising twists and sky-high passion, STEALING VALENTINE is an enthralling story from beginning to end. The book starts off with an intriguing situation, and the following events are just as riveting. Whether a happening has action taking place or is packed with steamy intimate encounters, I was kept captivated by the always engaging responses of the main characters.
When Dutch goes into the room where the Whistler diamond jewelry set is located, finding a woman there was not part of his carefully thought-out plot. After months of planning, he was determined to steal the very valuable pieces which would set him up for life. But nothing goes as expected, and he ends up taking her with him as it seems she already has the diamonds in her possession. Now Dutch just has to decide what he will do with Valentine.
Much intensity is displayed in every scene, and the wide range of emotions always come across as believable because of the author’s skilled writing. Although the relationship between Dutch and Valentine moves at a very swift pace, the way in which Madison Faye conveys the thoughts of the couple made their reactions seem convincing. Since the story is told from both points of view, I got an understanding of what each one was thinking about the same situation. A blazingly hot romance with very appealing characters and clever dialogue. Rating - 4.5 Stars
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
I came to rob diamonds,
But now I’m stealing her too…
I’ve spent my life taking what I want, even if it doesn’t belong to me. Stealing the infamous Whistler diamonds is supposed to be my last job before I can retire wealthy beyond imagination, and I’ve planned for everything…
Everything except for her.
Valentine is like nothing I’ve ever known before. Good, young, sweet, and alluring—with curves and an innocence far more tempting than any vault or priceless art. I didn’t plan on her, and I sure as h*ll didn’t plan on the diamonds I’m supposed to steal being draped around her neck.
…So I’m taking her too.
But when I lay my hands on the gorgeous little tease squirming against me, and with one taste of that sassy mouth, I’m lost. And when I find out she’s never been touched?
Well, that’s something else I’ll be stealing too.
I know she’s off limits. I know this breaks every one of my rules. I know I don’t give a damn about any of that.
Claiming her cherry is going to be the sweetest sin. But stealing her heart is going to be the greatest heist this thief ever pulled…
All the clichés, ridiculously over-the-top, and more sugary sweetness than a marshmallow peep. Chocolates, roses, diamonds, kidnapped by an obsessed growly alpha... you know, just the old fashioned classics ;).
As with all my books, this standalone is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.
