Looking for something a little different? Try an out-of-the-ordinary fantasy romance The Smoke Thief. For centuries, creatures that can shift back and forth between dragon and human form have lived in the misty hills of England. But one of their own has gone astray and is now stealing jewels in London. If this master thief, who, according to the newspapers, can walk through walls and vanish just like smoke, is captured, the lives of the Dra’kon will be threatened – possibly even destroyed! Enter main character Clarissa Rue Hawthorne, a Halfling (half dragon, half human). Rue shed her outcast image years ago and has made a life for herself roving the city streets. When the alpha dragon, Kit, comes to stop her, there are more than wills that clash-sparks fly! Winner of many awards, including the Romantic Times’ Historical Romance of the Year.
