4 Words for Stolen Chances – romance, adventure, suspense, intrigue

Stolen Chances is the fourth book in Elisabeth Naughton’s Stolen series. This can be read as a standalone but you do meet characters from the previous books. It is easy to follow and once you experience this adventure you’ll want to start the series from the beginning.

For the past nine years Archaeologist Maren Hudson has been working at her mother’s hotel. But being behind a desk isn’t where Maren desires to be. When she

Maren and Thad were hot and heavy 9 years ago when they are reunited for the search of an artifact that took the life of Thad's brother during the first search. But for Maren, she could not put that episode behind her. She now had a daughter from the relationship and a dangerous treasure hunter hounding her to try and find that artifact.

I've been reading a lot of new authors lately and although I have liked many of these books,

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in place of an honest review.

Maren Hudson never thought she would go back to Mexico. She hasn't been there in nine years. She was a great Archaeologist and loved what she did. Everything changed when someone kidnapped her daughter. It was Evan and to say this guy is psycho is an understatement. Her dad tells her he is sick and needs her to come. What she wasn't expecting when she was picked up that it would be Thad Leighton. He left her nine years ag

A fascinating read.

This read was full in intrigue, awesome local, cool characters, and drama.

The chemistry was sweet between Thad and Maren, showing them what they had shared years before was true. A few years has managed to dull that heartache a bit but Maren is hiding some secrets that could costs them their lives.

I really thought the historical legend was interesting and the danger that surrounds it adds to the suspense of book......along with a true evil villian. All these make for an entert

Another enjoyable book in the "Stolen" series by Elisabeth Naughton. Although this is the fourth book in the series, you can be read as a stand alone and not feel lost. I thought this was a good story with equal amounts of romance and suspense.

My rating: 4 of 5

When salvage expert Thad Leighton and archeologist Maren Hudson are both conned into returning to the Yucatan in search of an elusive treasure that cost a team member's life nine years ago, neither is particularly happy to be there. They certainly would have gladly avoided seeing each other. Things were not left very friendly when they parted ways and both held secrets they were eager to hang on to.

Elisabeth Naughton has a talent that really speaks to me and as yet, I have not read a book she has written, that I did not love.. Stolen Chances just adds to the list!!

Stolen Chances is book four in her Stolen Series and in a way only a great author can do, Elisabeth nods to the past while making this book all about these two characters. Sure we see a couple of people from previous books, when and if they fit in. We get a mention on a couple of others so we have that connection. But the main st

4 1/2 Stars.... Now I need to go back and read the 2nd and 3rd books in this trilogy turned series. *sigh*

I received Stolen Chances in exchange for a fair and honest review.

It is almost guaranteed that if I pick up a book by Elisabeth Naughton I am going to love it and I will not be able to put it down. The first book I picked up by her was Marked, the first book in her Eternal Guardians series. I’ve been hooked ever since. Contemporary or PNR, it doesn’t matter. Her characters and her writing

When I requested this, for some reason I thought I’d read at least one of the prior books in their entirety, though I knew I hadn’t read all of them. But now, I seriously question that belief. I remember checking them out from the library, but actually reading them…not so much, it seems. However, for the most part, that lack of reading the rest of the series, didn’t impair my enjoyment of this book. Since reading it, I’ve read one and a half of the other books and while the characters are ...more

Elisabeth Naughton steals our hearts once again with a new addition to her Stolen series, Stolen Chances

I first got hooked on Elisabeth Naughton when I read Stolen Fury, the first book in her Stolen Series. I quickly devoured the next two books - Stolen Heat and Stolen Seduction, then moved on to her also addictive Eternal Guardians series. I had no idea she'd expand on the Stolen trilogy, but was absolutely delighted when her publisher offered a review copy of book four in the series, Stolen Ch

I started this series years ago, and had no idea any more books were planned. The second book, Stolen Heat, became a favourite of mine, with an angsty back from the dead theme.

Elisabeth Naughton might be more focused on paranormal books, but I love her romantic suspense (or as I see them labelled, Romantic Adventure) books. Realistic characters, mystery, lost relics and exotic destinations make for interesting reads.

I had a fright at the start of Stolen Chances, as it in

Overall I thought this was a really great book. The main characters had a strong chemistry and there is adventure entwined in the story as well as romance.

I liked Maren and Thad a lot. I really enjoy learning about their past together and how the story unfolded and them coming together again. They share a history, have a pull towards one another, and their attraction is obvious. They're still drawn to one another after all this time – I could really get a sense of longing from both of t
The Yucatan doesn't have fond memories for salvage expert Thad Leighton or archeologist Maren Hudson. His brother and her team member, Colin, was murdered, putting enough pressure on Thad that he disappeared without knowing he was to become a father. Each heartbroken for years and missing what they had together neither is prepared to be thrown back into each other's worlds.

Maren's father continued to look for the artifact they were searching for and nine years later, he believes he's found it.

LOVE this author!! Since the first moment I bought one of her special priced Argonaut books, I have been stuck on this author! I am a true fan!! I will read ALL her books no matter the type of story! She's just that good! Plus, she's totally original!

This one is part of her treasure hunting "Stolen" series! I love these too! I just looked & there are 2 I haven't read & I have no idea why! I will be buying those asap! Meaning in like an hour or so!

and she has done it again! Elizabeth brings us another in the Stolen series, it tells of Maren and Thad. they have history, a little more hostile than Thad knows about and it's a while before be finds out thAt he has a daughter with Karen from their previous affair.
this book has action, danger, hot sex, a dysfunctional family and a slightly insane man up to no good! It's story is based around an item dated back to the Spanish invasion of the new world, and whether this item is a reality or not,

Another winner by Elisabeth Naughton! I have loved the other 3 books in her Stolen series and couldn't wait to read this newest installment. Lisa and Rafe made an appearance, but Thad and Maren stole the show.

Thad and Maren reconnect after 9 years and still feel the same spark from years ago. As usual, the romance in this book was fantastic. Thad has clearly matured since leaving Maren, and it was great to watch him realize what is important in life.

As with the other books in this series, the a

Once again, Elisabeth Naughton knocks it out of the park with another great book! Stolen Chances is the fourth book in her Stolen Series, and one great thing is this book can be read in order or as a stand alone (I myself like them in order but I've also been hooked since day one). This book tells the story of Maren Hudson and Thad Leighton. I absolutely loved the chemistry between Maren and Thad and I loved that they had a history! I love the adventure, the romance, and the mystery that ...more

Number 4 of the soft core porn "Stolen" series by Elisabeth Naughton. This one deals with Maren and Thad getting back together after a diving incident nine years ago when Thad's brother Colin was killed. Patrick, Maren's father and the driving force behind the search for La Miliche gets the old gang back together and sparks begin again. Maren has a child from their last get together nine years ago but Thad knows nothing about Isabel.

I enjoyed some of the story but the end was a little over the t

The latest in the Stolen series didn't disappoint. As usual this author smoothly entwines deep emotions, strong storyline and lots of action. Maren and Thad are a great couple. Love that Lisa and Rafe were part of the story as well. The historical information was another great treat as it is in all the Stolen stories. One item that was aggravating was the baseball inaccuracy. How no one editing didn't see it's not Red Socks it's Red Sox. Bad research on that one.

Another great book by Elisabeth Naughton. I really enjoy these. I wasn't sure how this one would be as it introduced new main characters. But Maren and Thad were instantly interesting and a few favorites from previous books showed up.

I haven't read any of Naughton's paranormal series but I had always stayed away from contemporary romance until I read my first of Elisabeth's books. Maybe I'll give the paranormal a a shot. I do enjoy her writing.

This book was awesome - definitely the best in a series that I really enjoyed and which had few low points. Great H&H with hot chemistry, good plot and pace and an idealic setting. It made me laugh, had a few tears welling up here and there and kept me glued to it's pages - a great all rounder and definitely recommended. This author has been a real find for me.
