A Stolen Heart

by Kayelle Allen

When a glorified space pirate turned entrepreneur rescues a vulnerable orphan, a chain of events sets chaos in motion.

At war with his compassion for the toddler, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he's coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path. A hard choice for any man.

For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible. A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child.

Luc must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him.

Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart...

Reviews:Justine Smith on Goodreads wrote:

A Stolen Heart is a fascinating story. Luc is sent on a mission by Pietas, the king. He finds the request simple enough but he didn't anticipate Senthys, the boy that would change his world. Senthys, a HalfKin, took over Luc's heart from their first encounter and didn't let go. This was an enjoyable story with well developed characters and lots of world building, which I like in science fiction stories.

Kayelle Allen's 'A Stolen Heart' is a good dose of mystifying science fiction. Perhaps you are still on the fence about it, with the cover image pulling at your heartstrings. I know that I sure was. If you're into science fiction with hefty servings of cuteness; then I think this is going to be your next read. For some, a family is everything. Even if no one they think of as a family member is related. In a nutshell, this is a statement on how far a person would go to protect the ones they love. How far would that person go to save children that he barely knows? And, what does it take to keep the mortal public safe from itself? Inside of that is a past that some Ultras can't forget and the regrets that won't leave.

I loved writing about little Senthys, but I didn't write A Stolen Heart first. In fact, I borrowed a page out of the George Lucas Star Wars playbook, and began with book 3, At the Mercy of Her Pleasure. Then I wrote book 4, For Women Only, and then book 2, which is Bro, and then A Stolen Heart, followed by Crystal Clear Truth.

A Stolen Heart is the only book in the series with gay romance at its core. The others are male-female. However, the spinoff from the Antonello Brothers series is Antonello Brothers: Immortal, and all those books feature main characters who are LGBTQ.
