Secrets of the Gentleman Thief by Melissa Murphy

Fear: Alisa Fenton embarks on a quest to conquer her irrational fear of the mystical Dark Forest near her home. When her brother William goes missing and Alisa searches for him, she realizes the forest and his disappearance are connected.

Secrets: Lord Daniel Emerson, an agent who steals artifacts for a secret government organization, is also looking for Alisa's brother. He suspects William, a fellow agent, may be in the hands of the enemy, and believes Alisa knows more than she's telling.

Murder: A killer, intent on silencing anyone connected to William, closes in, forcing Alisa and Daniel to flee.

In seclusion, their passion ignites, reawakening the childhood trauma lurking in Alisa's subconscious and stirring Daniel's secret guilt concerning a woman from his past. Can Alisa and Daniel overcome their fear of betrayal long enough to stop a sinister plot...and, more importantly, find the solace they both desire?

Reviewer: Fashionta
This was not what I expected but in a good way! By choosing the novel to be classified as a fantasy rather than a historical I knew that it was going to be no ordinary historical and I wasn’t wrong. I loved it!

It was the perfect balance between fantasy and historical. A reformed rake who doesn’t trust anyone, and a heroine who has a little issue (make that a big issue). This novel was the perfect combination of the two genres that I love.

I give this book five stars and hopes that the author will write a sequel to this book featuring the heroine's brother William. This author is being put on my to watch list as I have fallen in love with her writing style.
