Orphan. Runaway. Thief.
Since the moment I was ripped from my mother's womb, I've been an outcast amongst my own kind. The Sidhe might possess magical Gifts, unbelievable wealth and unfathomable power but I don't want a thing to do with them. I ran away from their lands in the Highlands of Scotland when I was eleven years old and I've never looked back. I don't need a Clan. I've got my own family of highly skilled thieves who mean more to me than any Sidhe ever could.
Unfortunately for me, the playboy heir to the Moncrieffe Clan has something I desperately need. To get it back, I'm going to have to plunge myself back into that world, no matter what the consequences may be. I suppose it's just as well I have sense of humour. I think I'm going to need it.
Gifted Thief by Helen Harper
Gifted Thief was a vibrant start to the Highland Magic series.
Integrity, an outcast, the runaway, clanless, has been living by her wits and survival skills for almost longer than she can remember. She is shocked to discover the high born clans have been keeping their eye on her. Wanting nothing to do with clans, Integrity is pulled back kicking and screaming into their world of deceit and magical manipulation by none other than Byron, prince charming of the clans.
She is the last surviving member of her clan, it was all but wiped out, leaving a black mark in everyone’s memory. The deeper Integrity delves into her clan history the more she discovers that the history has been rewritten by someone who wishes to do her harm.
Integrity must pull out all the stops and employee all her well-honed skills if she wishes to survive her return to her rightful place being the last of Clan Adair.
There is a chemistry at play between Integrity and Byron that has potential but overall this is Integrity’s search for truth.
She does bring along her side kicks, partners in crime (quite literally), which provide some great character interactions.
Definitely a series I will continue to follow, Gifted Thief left me hanging and looking for more to come.
I receive this ARC copy of Gifted Thief from HarperFire in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication Jan. 29, 2016.
