STEALING HIS HEART by Diane Alberts
About The Book:
A sexy category romance from Entangled publishing’s Brazen imprint…
Shillings Agency employee Jake Forsythe is not happy to discover that the thief who he has to track down is none other than his ex-partner from his past. Now he’s forced to blackmail her into submission…or throw her in jail.
Tara Harris steals from the rich and corrupted, returning objects to their rightful owners one case at a time. When Jake shows up in her life, at first, she’s thrilled. But then when she finds out that she has to help the man she stole from or go to jail…it’s the choice between two evils.
These two can’t deny the burning passion between them, but when push comes to shove, they’ll have to lay their hearts and their lives on the line.
Stealing his Heart
Hello! I’m Diane Alberts (but I also write as Jen McLaughlin), and I am so happy to be here today! I have a new book out with Entangled Publishing (Entangled Brazen), and it’s the second book in my Shillings Agency series. The first book was Temporarily! I’m thrilled to be here talking about the second book in the series (which is loosely tied with Falling for the Groomsman, which came out in June).
One of the things I love the most about writing is being able to explore different types of people, and the challenge that arises from doing so. In Stealing his Heart, the hero and heroine were quite the challenge! The hero is an ex-thief, ex-Marine, and a private security agent. The heroine? Well, not only is she the woman he has to blackmail into submission…but she’s also a thief, his ex-partner, and the woman he never quite got over.
The fun part about writing a couple like this is their history. They have so much between them—that you can’t possibly show in the book—that it has to come out in bits and pieces throughout the story. And, man do these two have some interesting fights. On top of that, Jake is a dominant man…in more ways than one.
The fire and steam between these tow is undeniable, and was so much fun to write. I hope that it will be just as much fun for you all to read. What kind of couples do you like to read about the most?
(what? those are my fave kinda couples. lol)
