Book Description:For centuries theyâ€™ve lived in secret among northern Englandâ€™s green and misted hills. Creatures of extraordinary beauty, power, and sensuality, they possess the ability to shape-shift from human to dragon and back again. Now their secretâ€“and their survivalâ€“is threatened by a temptation that will break every boundary....Dubbed the Smoke Thief, a daring jewel thief is confounding the London police. His wealthy victims claim the master burglar can walk through walls and vanish into thin air. But Christoff, the charismatic Marquess of Langford, knows the truth: the thief is no ordinary human but a â€śrunnerâ€ť whoâ€™s fled Darkfrith without permission. As Alpha leader of the draÂ´kon, itâ€™s Kitâ€™s duty to capture the fugitive before the secrets of the tribe are revealed to mortals. But not even Kit suspects that the Smoke Thief could be a woman. Clarissa Rue Hawthorne knew her dangerous exploits would attract the attention of the draÂ´kon. But she didnâ€™t expect Christoff himself to come to London, dangling the tribeâ€™s most valuable jewelâ€“the Langford Diamondâ€“as bait. For as long as she could remember, Rue had lived the life of a halflingâ€“half draÂ´kon, half mortalâ€“and an outcast in both worlds. Sheâ€™d always loved the handsome and willful Kit from the only place it was safe: from afar. But now she was no longer the shy, timid girl sheâ€™d once been. She was the first woman capable of making the Turn in four generations. So why did she still feel the same dizzying sense of vulnerability whenever he was near?From the moment he saw her, Kit knew that the alluring and powerful beauty was every bit his Alpha equal and destined to be his bride. And by the harsh laws of the draÂ´kon, Rue knew that she was the property of the marquess. But they will risk banishment and worse for a chance at something greater. For now Rue is his prisoner, the diamond has disappeared, and sheâ€™s made the kind of dangerous proposition a man like Kit cannot resist....In this bewitching novel, Shana AbĂ© transports us into a world of exhilarating romance and magic.From the Hardcover edition.
