A Stolen Heart

by Kayelle Allen

Breakups are hard, and Luc's immortal ex allows no lifetime to pass without trying to win him back. That's not happening, but despite Pietas being the jealous sort and manipulative, he's also the king. As his General, Luc can't simply walk away.

So when summoned for a "simple mission" of finding a lost child, he suspects it covers some hidden agenda or lurking secret.

The mission goes off with surprising ease, and when an alien toddler needing rescue falls into Luc's lap, worry about Pietas takes a backseat. While attempting to care for the boy, a late-night visit from the immortal king reveals Luc's easy solution screwed up everything Pietas was planning. Now Luc's slap in the middle of a dubious fix that endangers not just himself and his king, it also threatens the adorable tot Luc has decided to foster, along with all the other mortals he's come to love.

Because at the center of the Thieves' Guild Academy lies a lifetime of dark secrets, and Luc has just ripped off the veil and exposed its sinister heart...

When your king is immortal—and your ex—how do you guard your 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 Her Only, and then book 2, which is A Broken Heart, and then A Stolen Heart, followed by Her Crystal Clear Truth.
