Book Review: The Devil's Thief by Samantha Kane

Series: The Saint’s Devils #1
Author: Samantha Kane
Published: November 12th 2012 by Loveswept
The daughter of a reformed jewel thief, Julianna Harte knows a thing or two about stealth. When the foundling home she provides for finds itself in dire financial straits, Julianna is forced to do the unthinkable. In a bit of misguided Robin Hood derring-do, she slips through the window of a wealthy rake to search for a treasure she knows is there: an invaluable pearl. But when the towering and very naked occupant of the moonlit bedroom ambushes her with a bargain—a night in his bed in exchange for the pearl—Julianna doesn’t know if it’s masculine heat or sheer desperation that makes his terms so tempting.
Alasdair Sharpe had no intention of keeping his end of the bargain. Planning to offer his little cat burglar carte blanche instead, he promptly loses himself in the delights of unexpected pleasure. But when he awakes the next morning to find his family heirloom gone, fury quickly replaces sensual languor. Of course, Alasdair is more than willing to use seduction to reclaim his stolen pearl—and find the key to Julianna’s heart.
When I think of The Devil's Thief, I think sexy! Wow, Julianna and Alasdair were on fire! It's not easy to write natural sexy scenes, but Samantha Kane knows how to do it. From the first line, I was hooked with this twenty years old thief, Julianna, who is capable of giving her body for a pearl. And Alasdair, who isn't a saint but more like a hot devil, I wouldn't mind breaking into his room too.

Julianna is feisty and smart, everyone see her as a wallflower, and she kind of is one, but she wants Alasdair, her neigboor. Or just his pearl, which have great value and selling it could mean the end of her money least some. I liked her, she had an opportunity with Alasdair and grab it, without forgetting why she was there. And I lover her attitude when he discovered her.

Alasdair is more complex, because he ain't no saint and he doesn't want to like her, after all she's a thief, but can forget having her body in his arms. He was naturally kinky, I couldn't help but like him!

The story was different than I expected it, which was a nice surprise. Also, Alasdair's friends were a great addition to the story, obviously I want to know more of them.

Overall, The Devil's Thief was an amazing historical romance, it was the perfect book to start the year. The protagonists were hot and sexy, it isn't easy to find such a good chemistry. Samantha Kane is definitely on my radar now, and I can't wait to read the next book of the series, Tempting a Devil.
