Romance Paranormal | Fantasy
For centuries theyâ€™ve lived in secret among northern
Englandâ€™s green and misted hills. Creatures of
extraordinary beauty, power, and sensuality, they possess
the ability to shape-shift from human to dragon and back
again. Now their secretâ€“and their survivalâ€“is threatened
by a temptation that will break every boundary....
Dubbed the Smoke Thief, a daring jewel thief is
confounding the London police. His wealthy victims claim
the master burglar can walk through walls and vanish into
thin air. But Christoff, the charismatic Marquess of
Langford, knows the truth: the thief is no ordinary human
but a â€śrunnerâ€ť whoâ€™s fled Darkfrith without
permission. As Alpha leader of the draÂ´kon, itâ€™s Kitâ€™s
duty to capture the fugitive before the secrets of the
tribe are revealed to mortals. But not even Kit suspects
that the Smoke Thief could be a woman.
Clarissa Rue Hawthorne knew her dangerous exploits would
attract the attention of the draÂ´kon. But she didnâ€™t
expect Christoff himself to come to London, dangling the
tribeâ€™s most valuable jewelâ€“the Langford Diamondâ€“as bait.
For as long as she could remember, Rue had lived the life
of a halflingâ€“half draÂ´kon, half mortalâ€“and an outcast in
both worlds. Sheâ€™d always loved the handsome and willful
Kit from the only place it was safe: from afar. But now
she was no longer the shy, timid girl sheâ€™d once been. She
was the first woman capable of making the Turn in four
generations. So why did she still feel the same dizzying
sense of vulnerability whenever he was near?
From the moment he saw her, Kit knew that the alluring and
powerful beauty was every bit his Alpha equal and destined
to be his bride. And by the harsh laws of the draÂ´kon, Rue
knew that she was the property of the marquess. But they
will risk banishment and worse for a chance at something
greater. For now Rue is his
prisoner, the diamond has disappeared, and sheâ€™s made the
kind of dangerous proposition a man like Kit cannot
resist....In this bewitching novel, Shana AbĂ© transports
us into a world of exhilarating romance and magic
