I read Anne Stuart's Catspaw & Catspaw II several years ago. I stumbled across this novella called "Night" which finishes up the series.
Night: Nearing the age of thirty, Michael Blackheart is contemplating retirement from his life as a thief. But when he discovers that the Southworth Auction House will be showing a priceless collection of art, he is very interested. On top of that, the private firm working to protect the art is owned by Michael's father, a man he has never met. This is Michael's chance to make a last big score and show up his father.
This 90-page story has a lot going on. Michael is in the middle of the heist when he meets Isabel Linden who happens to be working for Mr. Helm, the owner of the art. A short thirteen hours later, they are in love and planning a wedding. Talk about a whirlwind romance! Patrick Blackheart and his wife Ferris are back for this story. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
