“When he robbed the casino, he left with more than money. He took me and stole a night of my life.”
A DARK ROMANCE
Once upon a time, a thief stole me in the middle of the night.
He took what he wanted, gave me an illusion, and ripped it all away to claim his ultimate trophy.
My heart may be physically weak, but fighting to live made me stronger.
I won’t perish as easily as that.
I’m turning the tables on him.
After all, I learned from the best.
I’m robbing him of what he stole from me.

Sensational Trilogy Conclusion
Stolen Love is the final book in the phenomenal Beauty in the Stolen Trilogy which concludes the story of Cas and Ian. The book begins at the unbelievable cliffhanger at the end of the second book, Stolen Life. Detective Wolfe has not given up his pursuit of the couple since they have found the answers to certain truths. This book is a very emotional read which will take you to the depths of despair, the burn of revenge, the anxiety of being hunted, and the steam of passionate attraction and love. Stolen Love is a well written romance packed with unexpected twists, drama, and action. I highly recommend this sensational trilogy!
Final book in the trilogy has a cinematic finish
Stolen Love, the third and final book in Cas and Ian's trilogy, did not open the way I thought it was going to after the cliffhanger of book two's ending, and though there were maybe some things I would have liked to have seen or some elements through the first half or so that I would have liked expanded upon, I ended up being pretty pleased with the direction the author went instead. The book has the same even-keel, slow and steady pace the whole series did, but in this finale really comes to a rather cinematic climax that I enjoyed immensely, complete with some levity from Damian and Leon (as well as hints for Leon's own potential story). Overall, I really liked the character journey Cas went on in this whole series, going from a really kind of lost place in life to fully embracing the full, colorful life she can share as equals with Ian, even if it was something she never could have imagined before.
This is the third and final book starring Cas and Ian who is one of the Hart brothers. Lina, my favorite character in the Diamond world makes an appearance along with her soulmate, Damian Hart. Fingers crossed for a Leon Hart trilogy.
I would be remised if I failed to mention the gorgeous and vivid covers. Some of the most beautiful artwork has accompanied this trilogy - more than likely because it's a story that elicits very strong emotions from the reader. This is a page turning drama that does not follow the expected path.
Without writing spoilers, I'm truly at a loss to describe Charmaine Pauls' stories. Her stories are sometimes gut wrenching for the reader, but page turning at the same time. You truly feel everything these characters are going through and I'm eagerly awaiting the next Charmaine Pauls' read which will be a collaboration with Anna Zaires.
