Reviewed By: Lisa
Blurb: Toby never meant to be a highway robber, but needs must. He didn’t plan to impersonate a top London valet either, but when the chance comes to present himself as the earl of Arvon’s new gentleman’s gentleman, he grabs it. Unfortunately, the earl is the man he seduced and robbed on the road to get here. Oops.
Miles, Lord Arvon, is not impressed. But he’s faced with a tumbledown home and lost family fortune, and desperate times call for desperate measures. Toby—shameless, practical, and definitely desperate—may be just the man he needs.
To steal back a priceless bracelet, that is. What else were you thinking?
Review: Toby may be a thief, but that doesn’t mean he’s without a conscience. He feels bad about stealing Miles’s possessions, in fact. Not that that stops him from doing it anyway because, as Toby would say, “Needs must.” He was never going to come face to face with Miles again anyway, so what’s a little thieving amongst strangers when ready coin is always so sparse?
Of course this is tempting fate, and obviously it’s the perfect setup for Toby and Miles to indeed meet again under the most inauspicious of circumstances. Toby showing up on Lord Arvon’s doorstep was supposed to be an opportunity to put a stable roof over his head, earn a bit of income, and guarantee three square meals a day. Two out of three isn’t bad,as the saying goes. Miles being Lord Arvon is a bit of a surprise. Miles agreeing to take Toby in, in exchange for help in clearing out his childhood home—without compensation in the form of coin, naturally—catches Toby off guard, but it also begins a lovely, if tentative, relationship that embraces their close proximity and the ties that will eventually bind them.
As anyone who has read KJ Charles would expect, A Thief in the Night brings all the warm and good feelings and delivers a sweet and sexy romance between two utterly charming and sympathetic characters. Miles and Toby don’t have much in common, but they do share a goal and, eventually, the sort of bond that means they put each other first above all else. In other words, it encompasses the gentle art of falling in love.
