~Book Review~ “Stolen by a Sinner” by Michelle Heard

My Review:

Lara’s life was nothing but misery and the threat of death constantly hanging over her head.  Working as a maid for the head of the Polish mafia was never her choice, but leaving isn’t an option.  Her only goal is to survive another day.

When Gabriel injures a maid during his raid of the Polish mafia’s stronghold, he takes her to use her for information.  Instead, he finds a complete innocent in all ways except violence and death.  As she begins to blossom into the young woman she was meant to be, Gabriel soon realizes he’s stolen more than just a maid . . .he’s stolen his very own reward and now he’s never going to let her go!

I’ll be honest, this book was downright heartbreaking at times.  I wasn’t sure how Lara was ever going to break free from her experiences and become someone strong enough to be with the head of the Turkish mafia, but Michelle Heard did an amazing job of empowering this character to be her own person with the love and support of Gabriel and his household.

While a mafia romance . . . and yes, there is plenty of action . . . I adored that this book focused so much on Lara’s spirit as well as with Gabriel learning that his heart could make room for a woman.

Stolen by a Sinner was a lovely journey of self discovery for Lara and a fantastic romance with some gentle and sweet moments along with some extremely sexy times as Gabriel and Lara explore this Cinderella like romance!  5 stars.

Cinderella said to be kind, have courage, and always believe in a little magic.

She’s wrong.

To survive in my world, you have to be dead inside, be on guard at all times, and never dream of the impossible.

You never dream of anything because you don’t just get to stop working for the Polish mafia.

But you can be stolen from them.

Well, kind of.

When Gabriel Demir, head of the Turkish mafia, attacks my boss, I’m caught in the crossfire.

I’m taken captive, interrogated, and soon find myself in the position of maid again. Only this time, it’s for the Turkish instead of Polish.

This time it’s for a dangerously attractive man and not the insane one I’ve known all my life.

This time I find myself fantasizing about my boss instead of dreaming of ways to escape.

This time I’m not threatened with pain and death but with pleasure.

But can I step out of the maid’s uniform and into a


Do I dare cross that line just for a moment in the
