Tara Harris steals from the rich and corrupted, returning objects to their rightful owners one case at a time. When Jake shows up in her life, at first, she's thrilled. But then when she finds out that she has to help the man she stole from or go to jail…it's the choice between two evils.

I don't know what's better, begging a dominant man for pleasure or a dominant man begging you for forgiveness! You get both in STEALING HIS HEART!
Once a thief, always a thief. Well, Tara Harris considers herself more like Robin Hood, stealing stolen items back from the bad guys who took them to begin with. She's got a "recovery specialist" business and everything--super legit. But of course, childhood friend, super-crush and fellow former thief Jake Forsythe would be the one to catch her in the act now, years after he disappeared from her life like she had the plague. Jake is pissed that Tara's still stealing, and Tara's pissed that Jake is now blackmailing her into helping him.
Jake was once a playful and lighthearted man, but adulthood has changed him horribly. He's cranky and bossy and stuffy, and if Tara's going to be forced to spend time with him, she'll definitely be trying to get him to loosen up! Jake is certain that Tara WILL submit to him, both in his blackmail request AND in bed. But he's only got a few days to make that happen, and Tara isn't playing nicely. Which one will lose control first?
OOOH, I absolutely loved STEALING HIS HEART, a Shilling Agency novel! The night that Jake catches Tara in the act had some incredible sexual tension and hot hot hot banter! I adored them together and thought that they made a crazy awesome couple--the thief and the security specialist. Tara is just a big kid in some ways, but all woman in others. Jake kind of drove me nutso with his constant NEED for Tara to beg. I mean, really, I'm all for a little D/s action, but he virtually BEGGED her to BEG him and it came off needy and sometimes asshatish (though I loved when he wound up BEGGING her toward the end!).
The two of them together completely steamed up the sheets, making this both a sexy and fun read. The writing was excellent and the back-story both believable and organic. After devouring STEALING HIS HEART, I can't wait to read any other books in the Shilling Agency series if they're anything as good as this one!
