Synopsis

To set things right, she has to be very wrong…

Former constable Daniel Carlyle hasn’t the foggiest notion how to be a viscount. No one is more shocked than he when his father’s second cousin and his son die on the same day. When a prominent earl offers to guide Daniel through Society and the House of Lords, he’s grateful to have a champion. Things seem to be falling into place when he meets a lovely young woman he intends to make his viscountess. Until he catches her stealing from his mentor.

The moment Jocelyn Renwick glimpses her family's stolen heirlooms in the possession of a wealthy earl, she demands their return. He dismissively insists they’ve been in his family for generations, and she privately vows to get them back at any cost. But the law-abiding Lord Carlyle foils her plans, and she reluctantly partners with him to solve the theft of her property. When they discover the earl is up to his ears in criminal acts, he threatens to link Daniel to his gang of thieves. Jocelyn must decide if justice for her family is worth risking a chance at love.

To Love a Thief

Wish it had been longer

To Love a Thief is the 4th book in Darcy Burke's Secrets & Scandals Series. It is actually a novella, and the only tie in to the rest of the series is Jagger. He is a criminal, who has appeared or been mentioned briefly in all the previous books. Jagger's character is developed a little more and it is hinted that he is more than what he seems. But I digress, this story is about Lord Daniel Carlyle and Miss Jocelyn Renwick. Theirs is an intriguing story about stolen heirlooms. a theft ring, and an Earl who thinks he's above the law. Daniel was a constable before he inherited a Viscountcy. Helping Jocelyn determine who robbed her family calls to his sense of justice and also gives him an excuse to keep her close. I purchases this novella, long before I became a member of Darcy's Dream Team (where I received ARCs in exchange for honest reviews), but hadn't gotten a chance to read it until I started reviewing the series. Daniel and Jocelyn's story would have been better as a full length novel. A lot of characters were introduced with no development. The plot was fast paced, which made the story feel rushed, and then everything was resolved much too quickly and unsatisfactorily. I loved that Daniel was a Constable before he became a Viscount. The situation was unique but was not elaborated on. Jocelyn was at times witty and immature, which made her difficult to empathize with. Daniel and Jocelyn deserved more time for character development.

A wonderful find! An interesting plot and engaging characters. This is the first book I've read by Darcy, but it will not be the last.
