A fast-paced fantasy romance filled with
warmth and love. Victoria and Jacob are tender, fun, passionate,
and supportive. With some suspense and violence, these two never
lose sight of each other, or their senses of humor."

Vic Flash is a talented street thief
and gambler. When she is forced into hiding from a rival gang's
leader, Big Charlie, she must find a different way to survive
until it is safe for her to return to the streets again. Her
salvation comes in the form of a handsome King's Own who hires
her for her stealthy talents. Vic soon finds herself launched
on a deadly quest against smugglers, blood magician's, and goblins
and Jacob are two fascinating characters brought to life in
this magical tale filled with intrigue, humor and romance. I
love the irony of Jacob admiring Vic's courage but then wanting
to squash it in order to protect her as he sees it. A classic
romance mixed with an imaginative plot makes this a must-read
romantic fantasy. THIEF'S DESIRE will grab your attention and
keep you spell-bound to the final, satisfying conclusion.

I found THIEF'S DESIRE to be a very entertaining
story. The developing relationship between Victoria and Jacob
is a hoot. Because of past experiences both are trying to fight
their feelings only to be drawn closer together. Of course,
no path to love is smooth and this one is no different. Full
of angst, humor, danger and loss Victoria and Jacob slowly find
their way to each other and solve the mystery of the prophecy.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories of other
worlds filled with magic and unusual creatures.

Outstanding is one word that comes to
mind for this book. The repartee between Vic and Jacob is engaging
as an old Hepburn / Grant movie, and the plot moves along quickly,
with no wasted tedious events designed to stretch it to epic
levels. The quest does not plod on forever, as many of this
genre do. It is also welcome to have conventional names. Every
character sparkled with real life reactions, and I enjoyed the
transformation from ruffian to lady Vic underwent, though it
did not change her essential personality, fortunately. I hope
this is the beginning of a series, as the potential is left
wide open for one.

This is a well-plotted, often exciting
story with great action, fine
characters and truly horrible villains.

"Thief's Desire" is a true
gem of a book. The characters of Victoria and Jacob are well
drawn and detailed enough for the reader to get a clear image
of them. Victoria's motivations are well thought out and her
feelings for Jacob are completely believable
Also a plus is Victoria's gutsy personality. She never sat around
waiting for things to happen, but was a take-charge character
who made things happen.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Thief's
Desire" and recommend it to anyone looking for a well-written,
fantasy driven romance.

THIEF'S DESIRE is a grand, desperate
adventure and the first in the Fate's Hand Trilogy. Ms. Kelly's
work echoes that of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover Series,
beloved by many readers
. The romance develops slowly but
once the adventure begins, it becomes passionate and deeply
emotional. The battle scenes are exciting and move at a fast
