Vic Flash has spent most of her life disguised as a boy learning to be the best thief and gambler in order to survive. She was certain her daring would get her through the most difficult engagements, until she decides to spin a third hand to make a win that does not fool even the expert card player.
General Jacob Marin has a very keen eye. As one of the King’s Own Guard it is his duty to be attentive. After observing a gifted gambler’s game at cards, he quickly learns that Vic is a Victoria and she might serve his purpose quite well.
Vic is quick getting into jams, and even faster getting out, just like her last name implies. After being spotted for possible cheating by a general in the King’s guard, Vic is called upon to be a spy. It is a dangerous job, but she knows all about the hard life living on the streets, and especially being part of a group known as Thieves Hole. The only concern is working closely with the sexy general. Jacob was certain that hiring Vic would help find the missing pieces to the puzzle of goblins that have been seen in the area troubling the King, as well as smugglers. He realizes it is a huge risk. They must untie the mystery while rescuing a prophecy child before it is too late. If they fail, they risk death as well as world destruction.
Thief’s Desire is a thrilling read. The characters exhibit incredible strength as they go against horrifying creatures while trying to save a baby before it falls into evil hands. The well-developed characters weave action-pack excitement that screams for more. Ms. Kelly pens a gripping story that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.
