The Thieves of Winter series is about the stories of Edmund, Simon and Monty. Jewel of Winter is Edmund's story.
It starts out in a isolated inn just north of London on the road to Scotland. The inn is owed by Jessanine, a widow. The inn was empty except for one lone customer when suddenly three gentlemen come into the inn bringing with them a gust of wind and snow. They were rude and Jess new trouble was blowing her way. She thought of their coin and greeted them with a smile. They demanded a private room.
Jess was on her way to tell them their rooms were ready when she eavesdrops on their conversation of stolen jewels. While leaning on the door to hear better, she finds herself falling when Edmund, the leader, pulls the door open. Edmund decides to use her to his advantage and the fun begins. The book is only 99 pages long, a short read. Now I have to find out about the other thieves.... The next book is "At Winter's Demand" Judith and Simon's story. The third book is Under Winter's Control", Lady katherine Reddington and Monty' story.
This is a quick read where the mystery is intriguing and the tensions on all sides are high. The tale is marvelously written with wonderful descriptions and clever turns of phrases. The plot moves ahead swiftly taking the reader on a scorching hot ride. I wasn't surprised by what happened, but it was a fun journey!
This story was an absolute delight to read. It combined two of my favorite genres: historical and erotica. Worth every cent of the 99 cents I paid for it. I regret nothing.
I liked it so much I bought the second immediately once I found it was already out.
As the first book in a trilogy, it sets the scene, so I caught glimpses of the other two thieves and one of the heroines, which was a nice touch. But of course, the main focus was on the leading pair, feisty inn keeper Jess and mysterious jewel thief Edmund. Neither is quite who and what they seem at the beginning, which made for an interesting read. I enjoyed it immensely that the heroine isn’t just some meek damsel in distress but has some spunk and is also smart. It made her a perfect – if surprising – match for the disturbingly sexy hero. Edmund is no common thief, that much seems apparent right away, and it was a treat to see him open up more and reveal an astonishing depth of character despite his demanding and dominant behaviour.
Mixed with the intrigue and dose of mystery were wonderful descriptions of the surroundings (highlighting their differences in status) as well as steamy scenes that made me all hot and bothered. The chemistry between the protagonists lighted the pages on fire without appearing too constructed. I was satisfied with the ending, but would have liked the story to be a little longer and reveal more about Edmund and the mysterious Katherine. I am sufficiently intrigued by Simon to want to pick up Book 2 in the series.
