This was my first book by Julie Anne Long and so I really did not know what to expect after buying it on impulse. I am glad to say that by the end I was very much a fan.
The story uses Pygmalion for its inspiration but although there are similarities - this is so much more than just a reworking of an old story.
Lily Masters is a skilled London pickpocket who steals to support herself and her sister, and is good at what she does. Gideon Cole is a handsome barrister who has a desire to better his position in life and plans to do so by marrying the daughter of a marquis and so obtain a position in the government.
Gideon catches Lily trying to rob a man and in exchange for her freedom she must pose as the object of his affection to make the marquis's daughter jealous enough to accept his proposal. So Lily and her sister move to Gideon's estate and as she is polished into a lady, they find themselves drawn to each other and start to fall in love.
Lily is spirited and feisty without being a stereotype and is someone you can really root for. Gideon is your typical deliciously rugged male who despite his desire to marry high to better his life, is not single-minded and makes a convincingly troubled hero. Together, the pair have chemistry that jumps off the page and this makes you more than interested in their story.
The basic story is not new, but with the quality of the writing it really shines through as an original. The character development shows you the characters struggling with their feelings and you can really see why they act the way they do and feel their happiness and pains. At times the book is poignant and touching but is also witty, and on occasion laugh-out-loud funny.

I loved this book. I have recently read the Pennyroyal Green series up to date, and am awaiting Lyon Redmond's story later this year. I think this book was an earlier one from the author, and it shows a little in the writing without in any way detracting from the wonderful story. It is crammed with all the ingredients - a reclusive uncle who needs rescuing from himself, a loyal and honest best friend, a grasping and generally unlikeable society woman, a slightly batty aunt, etc, etc. A very easy read, but one that made me teary and made me laugh, moved me - and made me cheer at the end. This author always brings such believable touches to her characters; in this book the main couple exchange private looks and smiles of complete understanding and empathy when they share a moment whilst in the company of others, but passion and love come later. I have not found any other of this author's books on Kindle, which is such a shame; just this one and the Pennyroyal series. Awful pity, but do read this book; maybe Amazon will put more of her books on for Kindle!

A nice story to while away the time. Yeh you have to suspend belief, but that's ok, it's a nice short love story that doesn't border on the wishy-washy, cringe worthy edge (well, maybe a little bit)!

TO LOVE A THIEF tells the story of Gideon Cole, a brilliant barrister, and Lily Masters, an orphan pickpocket from the slums of St. Giles, and how her transformation into a lady of high society changes both of their lives forever.

I absolutely adored this book, the emotions were so beautifully written that I constantly felt like I was being hit in the solar plexus, the story was romantic to the extreme and rendered perfectly. I read one of this authors other books reduced and bought this at full price because I loved the way she wrote, brilliant!
