To Catch a Thief. . .

For centuries, Gideon Montrose has served the King of Fairies without question and, often, without mercy. So when the King orders him to apprehend a notorious thief, Gideon obeys. But when he finally gets his hands on the beautiful culprit, Gideon's in for a shock.

Arabella Locksley is none other than the spirited, unpredictable woman he knew back in Make Believe as Robin Hood--the love of his life whose tragic death destroyed his chance at Happily Ever After.

Now, he has an impossible choice. Betray the woman he once loved, or the king he's bound to serve?

Gideon Montrose, the last of his kind, the Unseelies, has served the King of the Seelies, ever since his beloved Robin Hood had fell over a cliff and died. Fast-track to modern times and to the world of the Ordinaries, where now the King, his queen, Mab, and his court live and exist with the normal human kind and other Tales (beings from fairytales and other books). The King has ordered Gideon to search and find the thief who has been snatching artifacts that belonged to the fabled King Arthur. When he finds who it is, none other than his beloved Robin Hood, or Arabella Lockley as she is really known, Loving her still, he doesn’t bring her to his king, and even helps her find the last of the pieces, that together may bring immortality, besides fight off some hired thieves for some unknown person, also searching for the fabled pieces.

At first, it started off slow for me, but a few chapters in, it hooked me and swept me along the storyline. I didn’t want to put it down, but read to the end. I liked Gideon, and enjoyed the way he loved his Arabella. I also enjoyed that Ms. Serine brought back in characters from the book before this one in the series. The author has me hooked and wanting to read more about the Transplanted Tales world. These are not your children’s fairytales, but ones that adults can enjoy in a more grownup way.

About the Author:
Like a lot of other writers, I began storytelling even before I could hold a pen, entertaining family and friends with intricately plotted stories and skits at family gatherings. By the age of six, I was writing poetry and short stories and gearing up for my first novel manuscript, which I completed when I was fourteen. Many other such “practice” projects followed through the years and are currently taking up residence in a 75-gallon storage trunk in my upstairs loft, anxiously awaiting revision or cannibalization for the good of other projects.

I write romance novels—currently of the paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and romantic suspense variety. But I fully intend to write horror, epic fantasy, and sci-fi at some point. I’m represented by the fabulous Nicole Resciniti, who is an absolutely amazing agent! She is extremely patient with my penchant for breaking the rules when it comes to genres and knows exactly how to help me dial it back a notch while still keeping things edgy.

I live in a smallish, quintessentially Midwestern town with my husband (variously referred to online as Webmaster or Handsome Hubby), and two sons (henceforth known as Professor and Costello). When I’m not doing the day-job-thing or the wife/mom/maid/chauffeur/pack mule-thing, you’ll find me curled up with my laptop and a strong cup of coffee busily and happily doing the writer-thing.
