Fear:  Alisa Fenton embarks on a quest to conquer her irrational fear of the mystical Dark Forest near her home. When her brother William goes missing and Alisa searches for him, she realizes the forest and his disappearance are connected.

Secrets:  Lord Daniel Emerson, an agent who steals artifacts for a secret government organization, is also looking for Alisa's brother. He suspects William, a fellow agent, may be in the hands of the enemy, and believes Alisa knows more than she's telling.

Murder:  A killer, intent on silencing anyone connected to William, closes in, forcing Alisa and Daniel to flee.

In seclusion, their passion ignites, reawakening the childhood trauma lurking in Alisa's subconscious and stirring Daniel's secret guilt concerning a woman from his past. Can Alisa and Daniel overcome their fear of betrayal long enough to stop a sinister plot...and, more importantly, find the solace they both desire?


Need a story full of romance, deceit, and an out of this world experience?  Try Secrets of the Gentleman Thief.  Its different, unique storyline is a breath of fresh air from the same old type of stories out there.  I'm always looking for new genres and books to read, this one didn't disappoint.  I love Alisa, she's so strong willed, and portrays a great lead.  Following her story and troubles was such a delight.  Daniel also intrigues me.  There's just something about a hero that has a mysterious past and is shown to us that way.  But as readers learn more and more about him, the easier it is to fall in love with his character!

There's so much to this book- romance, action, secrets, mystery, fantasy...there's really a bit of something to please the eclectic romance reader, and you don't even have to get it from various stories.  It's all right here in this one!  Check it out; you may be surprised at how much you'll want more.
