I don't normally read sci-fi. And as soon as I saw the title, "A Stolen Heart," I assumed it was a romantic novel, which I wasn't really in the mood for at the time, but as I was just about to find a different title, I thought "maybe I should just check what the book is I about before I decide." I gave it a chance, and I'm glad I did. Reading this book was an extremely wonderful experience. ...more
When I started reading A Stolen Heart, I didn’t really know what to expect, I must admit that I was a bit confused at the beginning. It has some terms that I’ve never really seen before, and it was quite a lot of information for me to take in at once. I mean, I liked that it has its unique touch, I like when authors invent things and such, it was just quite a LO ...more

At last we get to see Luc Saint-Cyr as the man he really is, and I loved it! When he meets Senthys the shock he feels as love first enters his heart for the kid is heartwarming. And then we see it grow and grow until he realizes that he loves the boy more than anything—more than his love for Pietas, even, which is saying a great deal. This primary story is so wonderful. But the secondary story, regarding how children are being treating i ...more
I did read this out of order ad read At the Mercy of Her Pleasure which was Senth’s story and this one helps you understand his and Luc’s relationship much better. It also shows the softness in this hard, monster of a man and I absolutely loved it.
Everything about this story is great. The characters are am ...more
Kayelle Allen's 'A Stolen Heart' is a good dose of mystifying science fiction. Perhaps you are still on the fence about it, with the cover image pulling at your heartstrings. I know that I sure was. If you're into science fiction with hefty servings of cuteness; then I think this is going to be your next read. For some, a family is everything. Even if no one they think of as a family member is related. In a nutshell, this is a statement on how far ...more

Senthys is just too adorable! In this book the characters are well developed and quite likeable. The story does tug at your heart strings. Easy to read and quite entertaining. Close knit family with good old family problems but they all follow the house rules (mostly) and still take our the bad monsters. Good book!
