Blurb: Chester. Magpie shifter, renowned thief.
Chester knows better than to get involved when a dragon requests his services. Anyone who steals from a dragon’s hoard is not to be screwed with. There’s something alluring about Michal though, and Chester’s always loved playing with fire…
Michal. Dragon shifter, first-born son.
Michal knows exactly who’s taken the centrepiece of his hoard—his estranged brother. The one person he can’t touch thanks to family politics. It seems simple enough to hire the little magpie shifter to retrieve what is his. But, Chester is nothing like Michal expected, and in the end he might need to decide whether the last piece of his mother is worth more than the man who could own his heart.
Review: Chester is hired by Michal to steal a painting for him as a test. Once done he finds himself in a situation of intimacy with Michal. Plans are made to steal a bracelet back that was Michal’s mothers.
I loved the intensity of the story. There was passion, suspense and reconciliation.
A great short story that packed a punch.
