If I could give Stone of Thieves 100 stars I would. I absolutely love this book and I cannot wait to read the other books in this series!
Robin and Creek head to Italy to search for her mother and find answers to her gypsy heritage. What they find is a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Their love is put to the ultimate test and Robin has to become the woman she is meant to be. There is so much more to this story, but I don't want to spoil any of it for you. Trust me this book is brilliant!
One of my favorite quotes from the book is from Creek to Robin. It melted my heart and I instantly fell head over heels for him. "Forever for me began the very moment I set eyes on you. I protect what I love, Robin." I get chills every time I read it and can picture his beautiful blue eyes full of intensity and passion. Creek is hotness personified.
This book has everything that I love most in a book. It has mystery, danger,magic, ROMANCE, passion and so much more. The concept is fresh and unique. It pulled me in from the very first page and I couldn't put it down. I give my highest recommendation for this book. Love, love, love it!! Please note that it has a few mature situations.
