    I love this author’s writing! She is just soooooooooo good at what she does. My first thought when I finished reading this was… WHY DID I NOT READ THIS IN OCTOBER WHEN IT WAS RELEASED?!
    **yes in caps because I literally yelled at myself**




    I loved that I didn’t need a refresh on Night Walker to love this book – it is a completely separate story. IMO, you don’t have to read Night Walker first… If you want an easy, fast, fun, and well written story look no further – pick this book up. 
    What else… oh I loved Kane – he is awesome – hands down, one of my favorites <3 old school swoon right there! Marguerite is strong and I really liked that about her. There is action and romance all over this story. I was so not expecting the twist regarding her day job at all!! 




    4 very solid stars for this novella – you should check it out

    4.25 stars

    Kane has been living among the humans in France since his brothers spread around the world after the fall of the Mayan civilization. As a Night Walker he roams the night feeding on those who mean to cause harm to others and has no tolerance for posturing in France's high society. One night his attention is drawn to a beautiful blond woman who has stolen from another man. He is determined to know more about her and sets out to meet her. However, he was not counting on how he would react to her.

    Marguerite is a servant of an artist. She steals from rich men who are paying more attention to her beauty than their pockets so she could escape her situation. During her nightly outings she has noticed the handsome man with the gold-tipped cane and set her sights on him. But like Kane, she is not expecting to be drawn to him or to be found out. She is even more surprised by his kindness and tender ways. Even after finding out what he is she can't stay away.

    Night Thief is a novella in The Night series, but it can be read as a stand alone too. This time around Lisa Kessler brings to the page Kane's story as a Night Walker. I enjoyed how she went about setting the ground for the next book in the series while still telling Kane and Marguerite's romantic tale. What follows are a series of events, revelations and declarations that will keep you engaged in this story until the very end.

    I appreciated how she brought to the page the connection between Kane and Marguerite in a way that made it seem plausible for these two to get together. They both had their doubts and hesitations, especially Marquerite, which was completely understandable considering her situation, but their attraction was hard to deny and their connection was strong from the beginning and they couldn't stay away from each other. I enjoyed their banter and flirtatious and honest dialogue. It revealed a lot about their personalities, concerns and attraction for each other.

    The conflict in the story was engaging and interesting too, which only added to my enjoyment of this novella. It was great to learn about Kane and his brothers' story and I am curious to know the Night Walkers and their world. Lisa Kessler managed to pack a lot of history, facts and emotions in this novella and I am certainly looking forward to Night Demon, the next book in the series, which releases on March 18th.

    I received this title from Entangled Publishing in exchange of my honest opinion.

    Lisa Kessler has done it again. Her novella Night Thief is a great read to keep you sane until the next book (Night Demon) in the Night Series comes out in the Spring of 2013.
    Marguerite Rousseau, better known as Le Voleur D'or (The golden thief), is a girl just trying to survive, and if she has to do that by stealing from the rich and elite, she’ll do that without hesitation. Getting away from her cruel and heartless “master” with her young cousin is her goal and she is bound and bent she will achieve it at all costs. She is witty, clever, stubborn and personable, even as a thief. She comes across quite likeable, with a sexy attitude that just won’t quit.
    Kane Bordeaux, having been around for centuries, is intrigued immediately after seeing her swipe a gentleman’s purse. Kane is an immortal Night Walker who protects humans while keeping alive by feeding on the scourge of the earth. He is oh so much more than a vampire! He is a sweet talking, confident hunk of a man. He too has a sense of humour that makes him much more than likeable! Even though an immortal, he has retained a human sweetness, a generosity and kindness not usually inherent in one similar to a vampire.
    Lisa, as usual, builds up the world and the characters with an ease that astounds me. She again sets a wonderful pace that keeps us interested but not left feeling that things were too rushed.
    Woven in a historical setting, this paranormal romance will only whet your appetite for more of the Night Series.

    Night Thief is everything you can ask for in a full length book

    Night Thief is everything you can ask for in a full length book wrapped up in a novella. Kane and Rita's characters are well built and easy to form a connection with. An amazing addition to Lisa's Night Series but can be read as a stand alone. If you have read her first book Night Walker this will help ease the waiting pains until Night Demon is released and for anyone who has not yet read Night Walker I have to highly suggest that you do. This series is not one to miss and both books in it so far are definite MUST reads!!

    If you enjoy historical romances with a paranormal twist then this is the novella for you!

    Kane & Marguerite (Rita) both spot each other at a party and their curiosities are roused. Hers because of his presence and the confidence he exudes and his because he could have sworn she just pickpocketed an unsuspecting gentleman while flirting with him.
    I loved the tension between Kane and Rita as they try to figure out each others secrets without divulging their own, it soon becomes apparent that they must trust each other if they want Rita to live.

    I liked Rita, she's fiesty and even with her faults her heart was in the right place. Kane was allsorts of yummy, my kind of protector! I loved them together, I believe they will make a good team and I hope to see them in future books

    Night Thief is another winner for Lisa Kessler. Kane & Rita's story has it all.
    The distrust turned to love makes your heart ache for this couple. The ending made me cry. I was so happy for them. Can not wait to see the further adventures of Kane & Rita along with Kane's brothers :)

    A must read for all Lisa Kessler fans.

    All of the good bits combined to a neatly drawn, tightly woven romantic novella. Quickly paced with well-developed characters, a touch of mystery and a newly defined type of paranormal creature, this story does not disappoint and is a fun addition to historical romance, with a twist that will appeal to fans of many genres.

    The author has a breezy and light hand with description, and an ability to match fact to fantasy to build a world that is a perfect setting for the action. This book stood alone perfectly, although the second in a series, and was a nice introduction to this author and her work.

    I received an eBook copy for purpose of review for Book and Trailer Showcase eMagazine. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    A wonderful blending of Paranormal Romance and Historical Romance

    So first a little synopsis, you have drool worthy fashion rebel, Kane and you have "Rita", Marguerite Rousseau, as a thief who catches the eye of Kane. Kane is intrigued by her but he is well aware they come from two different worlds and nothing can ever bring those worlds together although little does he know, she's closer to his world then he knows........*evil cackle, muahahahaha* - totally not going to give any more spoilers then that. Lisa does a fabulous job blending a typical historical romance with paranormal romance. I'm not typically a historical romance person but I am totally a paranormal romance person and I loved it! In the book, like I said, you have a typical historical romance but then interwoven in it is another story about the paranormal. You have Immortals, Shapeshifters, Vampires and even Demons are mentioned. If you love either genre, I think you'll love this book? Oh and yes, there are smoldering love scenes. This book covers all the emotional gambit for your romance needs. Totally recommend it to everyone, well not the YA kids but to any adult, yep you betcha!
    This book is a novella in her Night series. The first book (Night Walker) is awesome also BTW, highly recommend that one as well.

    The golden thief steals more than his jeweled pocket watch.

    When Kane thinks he sees a woman stealing from a man at a party, his curiosity is piqued. They call her Le Voleur D'or (The golden thief). She noticed his jeweled watch, he noticed her beauty. Each had a mission to run into each other again (albeit not for the same reasons).

    Marguerite is desperate to get get out from under her "master". Men have hurt her in the past and she is always on guard. When Kane catches her going through her "finds" (including his jeweled watch); she denies being Le Voleur D'or. Why is she "finding" objects?

    Kane is different, but too much like the men in her past. Can she trust him? Can he help her escape from her "master"? What secrets is he hiding?

    When all is revealed, was more than a jeweled pocket watch stolen? Could they have stolen each others hearts?

    A full story compacted into a novella. Wonderful writing and an exciting story!
