About A Stolen Heart
A Victorian twist on Robin Hood.
The Earl of Rochelle, Nikolas Whitworth, is handsome, charming. And a traitor.
He can outwit and outcon any Englishman—and any Englishwoman. When his debts are called in a savior appears, the criminal mastermind known only as the Tailor.
Nikolas is bought and sold, his future no longer his. But when a beguiling thief picks his pocket, Rosalyn Devereaux steals more than his coin. Orphaned as a child, Rosalyn trusts no one. She picks the pockets of lords and ladies alike, donating her spoils to the poor. The Tailor notices her skills and demands Rosalyn enlist in his cause.
With every moment beside Rosalyn, Nikolas changes from a life of lies to a man with a conviction. She occupies his every thought but can Nikolas outcon the Tailor and secure Rosalyn’s heart before the Tailor steal’s his love?
I enjoy reading retellings. This is actually the second Robin Hood retelling I’ve read this year. And I love that there isn’t just one way to do these. This one was so great! I loved the way, Clarissa Kae wrote this one.
Rosalyn is our heroine. She’s a young woman who can’t trust because of her past. She also is really great at shooting the bow and arrow. I loved how she uses this skill to help those who are orphans, the way she was. But Rosalyn hides a secret. Her heart is not what whole and that causes her many problems doing the things that she loves to do.
Nikolas. I loved the way he loves Rosalyn. He wants what is best for her. And he wants to help her in any way he can. Unfortunately, due to some mistakes he’s made, he is watched continually. One thing about Nikolas is that he always finds a way. He is scrappy and resourceful.
This book kept me guessing until the very end about who the Tailor was. I loved how the author did that. You should definitely read this one!
I was sent a copy of A Stolen Heart as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
