After the fall of the Mayan civilization, Kane, an immortal Night Walker, has taken refuge in France for over 800 years. The modern world holds little interest for him until the night he meets the Golden Thief and is robbed of much more than his pocket watch.
Marguerite Rousseau is living a double life. By day she is the assistant to an eccentric French artist, Antoine Berjon, and by night she dons elegant evening gowns to woo French dignitaries before lifting their wallets.
Sparks ignite when Kane captures the thief, but Marguerite harbors a dark secret that could ruin them both.

I love this author’s writing! She is just soooooooooo good at what she does.
My first thought when I finished reading this was…
WHY DID I NOT READ THIS IN OCTOBER WHEN IT WAS RELEASED?!
**yes in caps because I literally yelled at myself**
I loved that I didn't need a refresh on Night Walker to love this book – it is a completely separate story. IMO, you don’t have to read Night Walker first… If you want an easy, fast, fun, and well written story look no further – pick this book up.
What else… oh I loved Kane – he is awesome – hands down, one of my favorites <3 old school swoon right there! Marguerite is strong and I really liked that about her. There is action and romance all over this story. I was so not expecting the twist regarding her day job at all!!
