Jackie is a thief struggling to survive when she learns of a man who's got the best of luck. He's just won a Faberge egg worth enough money that Jackie could retire and quit stealing. Unfortunately, she gets caught. Days later, needing a governess for his 6-year old son, the man agrees to hire Jackie rather than send her to jail. The two develop feelings for one another and before long, they're married. Of course there are several twists and turns that cause problems for the couple, all relating to Jackie's past profession, but you'll have to read the story to find out if they weather their many storms.
Jacqueline Beresford is a thief, looking for one last job that will enable her to afford a small cottage and live a normal life. But the beautiful burglar is surprised when she climbs into a huge estate, only to be confronted by the owner, Rory Donovan. Rory takes advantage of the situation and blackmails Jackie into taking the position of his son, Kevin's, governess. Soon, Jackie, Rory and Kevin become a family, but Jackie's past begins to catch up with her.
Nice retelling of Jack & the Beanstalk. My rating: 4 Stars.
It wasn't a castle, but Cloudmont was close: The enormous estate housed everything Jacqueline Beresford needed to quit her life of crime. But climbing up to the window, Jackie got a shock. The gorgeous giant of an owner was awake-and he was a greater treasure than she'd ever imagined.
It hardly surprised Rory Donovan that the beautiful burglar was not what she'd claimed, but capturing the feisty felon offered an excellent opportunity. He'd been searching for a governess for his son, and against all logic, he felt Jackie was perfect for the role-and for many others. But he knew that she'd broken into his home to rob him of his wealth-for what reason had she stolen his heart?
