Miss Lucy Bowes has suffered unbearable shame. Her brother is a thief and his deserter status in the army dashed all of Lucy's marital aspirations. Presently, she is helping her close friend Caroline, the new Marchioness of Dash, put her husband's estate together. To see to both women's safety while he is still serving Wellington, Dash assigns trusted officer Captain Ewan Sandeford to stand guard. From the outset, Lucy doesn't like the stuffy Ewan. However, he's needed more than ever as someone is constantly breaking into the Dashwood estate. Unlikely as it may be, Lucy finds herself drawn to the mysterious thief, who she knows instinctively is a gentleman. She is determined to unmask him, unaware that this man will soon steal her heart. Her Other Thief (4) by Glenda Garland is a complicated story loaded with secrets and intrigue. The warm affection that grows between Lucy and Ewan is highly effective. (Dec., 320 pp., $4.99)
