John Crusher is hauled into his hotel room only to come fact-to-face with a stunning redhead who orders him to strip. But when the room service is this superb, what’s a guy to do but show his appreciation.
Every MaryJanice Davidson story I’ve read is completely off-kilter different from what I’d expected and just downright funny. This novella was no different. My Thief had me out and out laughing, smiling and just grinning as the heroine, who is so different to what you’d expect, hooked up with a hunky accountant. Talk about turning stereotypes on their head.
I’ve been very much into romances lately. They involve a little less concentration than many of the fantasies that I love, and I’ve kind of needed that break in the pattern. As a general, they’re a little bit lighter than many of the other genres which fill my shelves. Yet, there is something even more light-hearted about this novella. Something that made me feel like I was on a happy universe where everything actually does work out in the end… especially when you consider the competition between Robin and her Uncle Rich.
I love imagining the happily ever after, sunset moment that both of these characters are going to have. Particularly the idea of Robin meeting John’s Hallmark family. It’s a future filled with humour and entertainment. One that would never have a dull moment. And, honestly, who wouldn’t want that?
