Book Description

Jan. 4 2000
He was a daring cat burglar who never suspected his heart could be stolen....

When Kitty Fontaine invades the opulent homes of London aristocrats, she seeks only one treasure: the Blood of India, the exquisite ruby that will ransom the life of her father. But someone else covets the fabulous gem--the coolly audacious burglar known as the Tiger. A master of seduction, he steals into ladies' bedrooms to relieve them of their valuables, only to capture their hearts in the process.

One night over a plundered safe, she will find herself face-to-face with her rival, instantly spellbound by his smoky gaze. Enticing her with a luring challenge, he brands her with a searing kiss and claims her body as his own. It will not be their last encounter--and she begins to suspect that it was not their first.

Does the Tiger truly have a connection to her painful past? As fate and the ruby bind them on a perilous quest, Kitty will risk her life and freedom. And for a love she never expected to rekindle, she will risk her heart and soul....

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Kitty Fontaine is 19th-century London's Queen of the Skies. By day, she is a world-famous aviatrix, by night a cat burglar now seeking the Blood of India ruby. Her only obstacle is Max "the Tiger" Aveli, another thief after the same prize. Kitty desperately needs the elusive jewel to save her father's life, while Max simply enjoys the thrill of robbing and seduction. When they are both apprehended by Scotland Yard, they are forced to work together to find the ruby. They travel to India, where Kitty was born, and soon they are steeped in local political intrigue, revolution and betrayal. Unable to deny her passion for Max, Kitty must accept that her only chance of survival lies in the hands of the one man she can't trust. O'Neal's (Written in the Stars) skillfully written adventure brims with smoldering sensuality. (Jan.)

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! May 23 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really loved this book! I read a lot of romance, and after a while, they all start to sound the same. This book surprised and thrilled me. The characters are fresh and different, and their romance is really touching and kept me hooked the whole time. The action is exciting and kept me guessing. After I'd finished it, I felt like I'd really been to India, and that I'd shared in their adventures. The hero is to die for! And the heroine is strong and sassy, but I felt like I'd really known her. I definitely plan to keep this book and read it again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR! May 22 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the best book I've read all year. It takes us on a magical journey to India through the exciting experiences of two sexy cat burglars who are at odds not only because what they want differs, but because of a past that's being denied. The writing is superb, the characters are the most interesting I've encountered in romance. It kept me guessing with unexpected plot twists to the very end. Romantic, adventurous, sexy, a fabulous read that I'd recommend to everyone! I plan to read all of Katherine O'Neal's books after this.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! May 16 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm a great fan of Katherine O'Neal's books and I absolutely loved this latest addition. As I've come to expect from her books, it's adventurous, witty, has a hero to die for and a heroine that any woman would want to be, and has love scenes that are some of the best and sexiest being written today. I felt as if I'd really been to India after reading her marvelous descriptions. I was completely captivated by the story, and often surprised, which is rare in this genre. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who wants escape, who wants to be transported to a world where love really does conquer all. I couldn't put it down!
