Lady Viola Preston carried the responsibility of taking care of her family as a jewel thief. She was good at her job but now will be stopped in a trap set by Greydon Quinn who needs the help of the jewel thief. He will give her little choice but to accept the task he thrust on to her.
Greydon Quinn has his sights set on the diamond for his friend but to retrieve it only the jewel thief, Viola would be up to that task. Quinn will find that the diamond is not the only thing he wants especially as he finds that Viola has a wanton passion to her. He will find pleasure in her arms but struggles to trust her as her history gives her no credit.
Immediately checking the back of Touch of a Thief by Mia Marlowe I was intrigued with the concept of a thief who heard the diamonds speak to her or in this case she could feel things and if they had a past a vision would come to her. I found that Viola was a contradiction which made her fun to read about and I loved that she was a jewel thief. Then there was Quinn who carried a secret which shamed him. I had a feeling what it was and that it regarded his brother. I was right in my assumption but Marlowe does a great job at uncovering the truth with the help of Viola’s vision. Quinn was a strong character with his own self doubt which made him more human and relatable. The villain was not expected, well there was a couple villains and as a whole they were interesting to read about as the plot unfolded. I am excited to find out where this series will be going with this unique power and if it stays within the family of the Preston’s.
