He Was a Gentleman...

In tuxedo and bow tie, Jordan Tavistock was the unlikeliest burglar. But when a chum asked him to steal back some X-rated love letters from her ex-lover's estate, he had no choice but to oblige. He never expected to get caught...by another thief.

She Was a Wanted Woman...

Despite her protests, Diana Lamb was too sleek to be anything but a cat burglar. In

Extremely predictable plot, a female protagonist that made me want to bash my head into a wall and a completely unbelievable romance. I'm trying to think back to when I read the first book and if it was this bad, since I remember liking it. But then again I was fifteen, so maybe these books are more suited for teenagers.
In favor of this book, it isn't too long and it's easy to read. If I had brain damage, I might have enjoyed it more.

When Jordan Tavistock found himself in the unenviable position of first time burgler, he didn’t expect to be caught. But caught he was, and not by the inhabitants of the house, no, by another burgler! Clea Rice had burgled before, she had spent time in prison for past misdeeds, but she didn’t expect to have her plans thwarted by a bumbling, noisy amateur. As they escaped the house together, Clea without what she came for and Jordan with what he came for, he didn’t realize his aristocratic life h ...more

Recommends it for: No one except those who's a fan of historical romance because this feels like it
Hmmm what can i say about this book... That i regret spending any money to buy this book even though it's on sale and that I hope Gerritsen's Rizzoli and Isles series are nothing like this. Because if it is, i might as well donate them all.

The reason i bought this book was because i heard good things about the rizzoli and isles series, so when i saw this book in the 3 for 2 bargain bins at Borders, I bought three of Gerritsen's earlier books. but this is nothing like the mystery-thriller type of

The Thief of Hearts is Tess Gerritsen’s 10th stand-alone novel. Jordan Tavistock, doing a favour for a friend, encounters a very attractive female thief whilst himself trying to steal some letters from a local wealthy playboy’s bedroom. Soon, Jordan chances upon Clea Rice again, and after a narrow escape from an exploding car, their destinies seem to become irrevocably entwined. While Clea thinks Jordan would be safer leaving her to fend for herself, Jordan isn’t about to let that happen. Lots o ...more

Kitabı okuduğumda başlarda kopukluk hissettim... Bölümleri bağlamakta zorlandım. bölümleri okudukça bir şeyler netleşmeye başladı fakat bir bölümü anlayana kadar zaman geçiyor. kitabın bana hiçbir katkısı olmadı. şöyle ki karakterlerin ruh hali hiç yansıtılmamış. sadece olaylar akış halinde. akış çok hızlı olduğu için kopma oluyor.
bir bölümde tavistock clea ile bir şeyler yapmışken birdeeen hopppp başka bir olay oluyorrr... Aaaaa ne olacak şimdi derken başka birşey. Kafam karıştı açıkçası. alıp

Novels by Tess Gerritsen were first recommended to me by my friend Ann. Ann is a scientist and Gerritsen was a medical doctor before she was an author so I thought the books might be too scientific for me. I delayed reading any of her books but now I really enjoy them. This author writes a very good thriller. Gerritsen was born on 12 June, 1953 in San Diego, California, USA. She is now an American novelist having retired as a physician. In 1975, Gerritsen graduated from Stanford University in Ca ...more

It's not the worst book I've ever read but it's definitely no where near the best! I found the character of Clea fairly annoying and the romance with Jordan really didn't move me at all. Nothing really special I'm starting to wonder what all the fuss about Tess Gerritsen is actually about. This book is like a bad Mills and Boon and most Mills and Boon books are bad!

I've heard Rizzoli and Isles is better but I'm yet to discover if that's true. This has kind of put me off.

Tess'in yazdığı ilk kitaplardan olduğu nasıl da belli. Polisiye, gerilim falan değil de keyifli bir macera romanıydı. 3/5
--
It's pretty obvious that "Stolen" is one of the first works of Gerritsen. Was not a thriller or detective kind but was an adventure novel, can be read with delight.
Wayne
Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli Isles series is one of my favorites. Unfortunately this isn't of the same standard. Nice escapist read on holiday but pretty predictable.

I andra delen om familjen Travistok får vi följa Beryls bror Jordan, en sann engelsk gentleman.
Och som den gentleman han är så hjälper han en bekant att bryta sig in i ett hus för att ta tillbaka några väldigt privata brev. När han bryter sig in i huset inser han att han inte är den enda tjuven- det finns en till. Efter att dom börjar jaga varandra får han dessutom se att hon är en tjej, vilket var den största överaskningen!
Tjejen, Clea Rice, eller Diana Lamb som hon kallar sig, är föröljd av

Beğenerek okudum özellikler Aristokrat Jordan Tavistock ile Clea Rice'in kitabın başından itibaren başlayan macerasını çok sevdim..
Bir Harlequinn Kitabı olmasına rağmen dolu dolu bir kitap idi..Yazarın diğer kitaplarındaki gibi tıbbı gerilim ve cinayet ile bezeli değildi..Ama tam da benim istediğim gibi bir macera vardı eskiden televizyonlarda oynayan bir bölümlük tv.

"Thief of Hearts" by Tess Gerritsen
(from back cover)

He was a gentleman bandit, she was a cat burglar. And they caught each other in more ways than one. But their desire was as strong as their distrust, and Jordan Tavistock began to fear that Diana Lamb was more than just a thief of hearts.........

MY THOUGHTS: This is the second book by Tess Gerritsen that I have read. I liked this one just as much as the first one. You may ask how one book can be a Conspiracy Thriller and a Romance Thriller at t

The gratuitous sex & relationships that are completely unbelievable, & add no value to the story, have completely put me off Tess Gerritsen. I feel like I'm reading a cross between a Jackie Collins romance novel & an actually okay thriller writer, but the overdone relationships have put me off. So I don't think I'll be buying any more of her books.

Depois de Beryl Tavistock, agora foi do seu irmão Jordan, que já em In Their Footsteps se revelou interessante, de ter o seu romance. Foi uma história bonita e querida, também com os seus momentos engraçados com Jordan e Clea a conhecerem-se quando os 2, individualmente, assaltam a mesma casa, ainda que com motivos bastante diferentes.

Teve um bom enredo por trás do romance, com Clea a procurar a sua vingança. Gostei desta per

unexpected from "Rizzoli & Isles" Author

I read the book because I love the R&I series and found myself in a romcom I didn't expect but unfortunately became just like a Harlequin romance. Fun romp
Carrie Mudge
First of her stand-alone's I've read, and nowhere near the quality of her R&I series. An ok read, but the totally slushy romance angle spoils it, and Clea is not a very interesting female lead, very angsty and predictable.
Ceren
Ve Tess'den yine aşk yüklü bir roman. Neden Rizolli & Isles serisi kadar etkilemiyor bunlar? (Sanırım CSI moduna girmek istiyorum ama bir türlü giremedim.)İngilizlerin asilliği... Yedi bitirdi beni. He ayrıca maalesef şartlardan dolayı çeviri okumak zorunda olmak da çok kötü bir şey. Martı Yayınları kitabı basmadan önce kontrol etmiyor sanırım. ['önünde sonunda' kullanımı ne kadar da itici bir şey. 'eninde sonunda' bari bu doğru yazılaydı.]
Raymond
Genre: Adolescent, Romantic, Thrivel (thriller/Drivel). The first Tess Gerritsen book I read was great, it was one of the most recent. Most of the earlier books (Stolen included) have been mediocre.

I am sorry to say that this book was a complete disappointment. Having read "The Surgeon" and "The Apprentice", I had much higher expectations of the writer. I confess that I checked the cover twice to make sure that it was really her name on it. In a few words, the plot was weak, predictable and uninteresting, the romance was cheap and some of the descriptions were almost soft-porn. Needless to say, that was irrelevant to the development of the plot and didn't contribute to it in any way. Deep ...more

Tavistock kardeşlerin hikayesini bitirmiş bulunmaktayım :)
Bu kitap da güzel ama suçlular belli, olaylar belli.. Beni kitabın içine çeken, sayfaları merakla çevirmemi sağlayan çoğu Tess kitabı gibi değildi.
Ama Jordan'ın hikayesini merak ediyordum. Ben ablasının hikayesinden iyi olur diyordum ama ilk kitap daha iyiydi gerilim, gizem, cinayetler açısından.
Konuya değinmeyeceğim üstte konu kısmında yazandan pek farklı bişey yok. Sadece beni bir olay şaşırttı. O da başta Jordan'a oynanan oyu

Another trashy love novel with a bit of adventure on the high seas. An easy read.
Louise
Not the usual tess standard
Kandie Geffre
It was more a romance than mystery. Not as good as the others, but not uninteresting. I still prefer her Rizzoli and Isles series to her stand alone books.
Lainy
I quite liked it. I was expecting the worst as people have said her older writing isn't nearly as good as her newer novels. Picking it up it is stamped as a Mills & Boons which I loved as an young teenager and to be honest it had much more pace and story than the Mills & Boons I remember. There is a good plot surrounded with murder and mystery aswell as emotions and attractions. Overall a 3 out of 5 for me, easy and good read.
