After the fall of the Mayan civilization, Kane, an immortal Night Walker, has taken refuge in France for over 800 years. The modern world holds little interest for him until the night he meets the Golden Thief and is robbed of much more than his pocket watch.
Marguerite Rousseau is living a double life. By day she is the assistant to an eccentric French artist, Antoine Berjon, and by night she dons elegant evening gowns to woo French dignitaries before lifting their wallets.
Sparks ignite when Kane captures the thief, but Marguerite harbors a dark secret that could ruin them both.

I have a major major love for Lisa Kessler's books. Back when I first started blogging I received this awesome novella for review called Across the Veil and there was no looking back. I was obsessed. And Lisa was the first author to truly talk to me and actually be interested in what I had to say so it's fair to say she was my very first author friend. Since then I have totally been stalking (not in a creepy way I promise) all of Lisa's work and I absolutely adored the first installment in the Night Series Night Walker, I mean really who wouldn't love Calisto? So anyway I have been dying to read more from Lisa so I was dying to read Night Thief. A big thank you to the awesome people over at Entangled Publishing for providing me with a review copy.
Kane is beautiful, mysterious and super yummy. But he has a secret, he is a Night Walker. Not usually interested in the mortal world it is a surprise when he comes across Marguerite, the woman who thieves to try and improve the life of her and her cousin. Kane cannot resist the mysterious and incredibly beautiful Marguerite but is he chasing after someone who is after nothng more than his riches? Marguerite will do anything to make a better safer life for her and her cousin but when she meets Kane she starts feeling things she has never felt before. But can she trust her heart when it has betrayed her before?
I absolutely adored this novella. It was crazy amazing. Lisa's writing style is just absolutely phenomenal. She just instantly draws the attention into this world and you truly become so emotionally invested in these characters where you cannot possibly stop reading until you know what happens. I was completely captured by these new characters and I just had to know what was going to happen. This was a one-sitting read.
Kane, *insert dreamy sigh here*. Wow, I never really thought anyone could really beat Calisto but I fell head over heels for Kane. He is so swoon-worthy. He is incredibly sweet and romantic and is definitely the character that every girl will wish was real because he is just incredibly amazing. I also really loved Marguerite. She is such a great character and you see her really grow throughout the book. She is a total kick-ass heroine who will do anything to protect her family and those she cares about and you get to experience everything with her. The fear for hers and her cousin's life, her hesitence at her feelings for Kane and her finally allowing herself to open her heart again.
This was without a doubt a fantastic love story and I truly loved every moment of it. I'm pretty sure there is absolutely nothing that Lisa can write that I will not fall head-over-heels in love with. I adored every moment for and I cannot wait for book 2 in the Night Series, Night Demon. No doubt it's going to be absolutely amazing. If you want a short novella you can read fairly quickly filled with heart-stopping romance and pulse-pounding heat this is definitely the book for you. It was incredible!
