Stealing a diamond to save the world is the easy part.

Mishael Taylor takes comfort in speed, racing from one mission to another as Allegro, one of the Elite Operative Organization's top agents--or from one affair to another, to avoid having to think about the things she's seen and done. Cocky, confident, and used to winning, Mishael confronts her greatest challenge when s

This second book in the 'Elite Operatives' series is a blistering and heartwarming winner. I am certainly hooked into these books and hope that 'The Gemini Deception' was not the last one. Venice, the Netherlands, and Afghanistan are where most of the action takes place in 'Thief of Always'. There is a brilliant cliff hanger conclusion that had me glued to my Nook until all was resolved.

Allegro, aka Mishael Taylor but operating under the cover name of Angie (Angelica) Whitman, certainly operates

This new part in the series was much better than the first one, in the sense that it was more complicated for the main character, which makes it more interesting. The suspense was great and the romance was more complicated than the previous one. The action was better than the previous one, but like before, it was barely there or rarely seen. What I love the most about it was that it brings back some characters from the previous voulumes and the ending looks like the introduction to the next volu ...more

I'm reading the Elite Operatives series this week and just started with the first like two days ago. Its sort of a refreshment for me and I need some easy read nowadays after poking my nose on some disturbing stuff.

I like this more than the first one. Mishael Taylor a.k.a Allegro has the cockiness in its right amount that I found endearing. There's so many scenes in here between Misha and Kris (the countess and heroine) which made me laugh out lou
A great second chapter in the Elite Operatives saga. More exciting than the first book and with more engaging leads, this is when this series really started to take off.

I liked Allegro more than Domino the lead from Lethal Affairs. She is somewhat impulsive at times, but she always feel strong and capable and her moral center seems to be more intact at the start of the book. I also really loved Kristine. She was very strong, as most of the romantic partners are in these, but she has her own styl
I like! And I like even more that there're several more books in the series. I'm one lucky fan of badass women, seeing as I had hit upon the treasure trove.

Will go off to read the first and other books in the series now... er, after exams that is.

I don't really like romance mixed with thrillers, spy or otherwise. Though I do seem to have read a lot of them. I know I gave the first book in this series a relatively high rating but this one fell into the trap, the reason I dislike romantic suspense. Most of the time it's because of the romance. This time the problem is mostly with the suspense part.

The annoyances just kept building to the point where I finally had to just stop reading. With 5% of the book left to read. Probably less as part
Loved this one even more than the first.
Lindsey Stock
This one is just as good as the first book. Don't worry if you haven't read the first in the series, this one could stand by itself and not be confusing to first time readers although the experience is more fun if you've read the first because they sort of cross over a tiny bit. Once again, it is a decent intrigue and the plot is not overpowered by steamy romantic scenes like in most romances (of course most romances don't actually have much a plot to begin with).
Romance, adventure, terrorists, good guys, jewels... What's not to like?
I really enjoy this whole series. The characters each have very distinct personalities and skills. The story lines hold you right to the end.
Enjoyable read. Look forward to reading book three.
