Raven's Tears by Michael Matson and Alesia Matson

Thursday, March 27, 2014

A con turned cop. And urchin turned lady.
Two webs of lies. An epic love.

Sir Vincent Sultaire is the Raven, rakehell, playboy, con, serving a term of indenture for the crimes of burglary and extortion. His lover, Lady Angelique Blakesly, seems to be a wealthy, widowed baronness and devout member of the conservative Guardian Paladin church. But Angel's careful poise and reserve conceal the Iris, one of Fernwall's most successful high-stakes burglars; and beneath the collar of Raven's indenture, he's playing the cops and the cons for fun and profit.

Their deceptions intersect explosively after the brilliantly executed theft of the priceless Tôrg-Dernäd. Sir Vincent is put in charge of the investigation, a thief set up to catch a thief. Angelique, beholden to forces beyond her control, is desperate to stop him.

Will Raven discover the truth? And will it be enough to set Angel free before their lies destroy them both?

Goodreads Summary

Many people in this world lead double lives, and this book is a great example of two people who are succeeding very well at it. She is a member of higher society and appears to e conservative and he is a criminal trying to hide his "old" ways from the public. Yet in secret they meet together and begin a relationship that would never be met with smiles if it was discovered. 

One of the things that makes this book stand out a little more than the last romance is its element of magic. It makes the story a lot more unique and interesting. I also really liked reading about a high society type that was fooling everyone and fitting right in with her women's groups and ritzy lifestyle like nothing was going on on the side. Another twist that I enjoyed a lot was that Raven was eventually set to investigate crimes that he committed. It makes for a crazy web of lies that you would never want to be tied up in but enjoy the heck out of reading about and watching from afar.
