For centuries theyve lived in secret among northern Englands green and misted hills. Creatures of extraordinary beauty, power, and sensuality, they possess the ability to shape-shift from human to dragon and back again. Now their secret-and their survival-is threatened by a temptation that will break every boundary....

Dubbed the Smoke Thief, a daring jewel thief is confounding the London police. His wealthy victims claim the master burglar can walk through walls and vanish into thin air. But Christoff, the charismatic Marquess of Langford, knows the truth: the thief is no ordinary human but a “runner” whos fled Darkfrith without permission. As Alpha leader of the dra´kon, its Kits duty to capture the fugitive before the secrets of the tribe are revealed to mortals. But not even Kit suspects that the Smoke Thief could be a woman.

Clarissa Rue Hawthorne knew her dangerous exploits would attract the attention of the dra´kon. But she didnt expect Christoff himself to come to London, dangling the tribes most valuable jewel-the Langford Diamond-as bait. For as long as she could remember, Rue had lived the life of a halfling-half dra´kon, half mortal-and an outcast in both worlds. Shed always loved the handsome and willful Kit from the only place it was safe: from afar. But now she was no longer the shy, timid girl shed once been. She was the first woman capable of making the Turn in four generations. So why did she still feel the same dizzying sense of vulnerability whenever he was near?

From the moment he saw her, Kit knew that the alluring and powerful beauty was every bit his Alpha equal and destined to be his bride. And by the harsh laws of the dra´kon, Rue knew that she was the property of the marquess. But they will risk banishment and worse for a chance at something greater. For now Rue is his prisoner, the diamond has disappeared, and shes made the kind of dangerous proposition a man like Kit cannot resist....In this bewitching novel, Shana Abé transports us into a world of exhilarating romance and magic.

After reading Dream Thief and Queen of the Dragons, I had to find book #1. Smoke Thief was even better than the other two. If you have not had the opportunity to read it, you must pick up a copy of Dream Thief. Rue is one of the most entertaining heroines I have encountered in a long time. I loved the way she stood up to Kit the Drakon council. And Kit, who would have thought that dragons could be sexy! Wow!

I really liked the idea behind this book. Setting the story in England in the 1700's was a brilliant idea. The main character, Rue, already has a complicated life, a dragon living as human among humans. Then add to the mix that she is a woman in a time when women had so little independence and makes her struggle to live on her own terms that much more compelling. Even with the mysticism of dragons this book reads like historical fiction with plenty of romance thrown into the mix. What an adventure!
