Publication date: October 30th 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance, Steampunk
An impossible heist. A thief and a rogue. But will she steal his heart, instead?
The Company of Rogues finally knows the identity of the mastermind behind a plot against the queen—but their enemy is still one step ahead of them. When he kidnaps one of theirs, the Rogues plan a daring rescue mission that will lead them into the heart of the bloodthirsty Crimson Court.
It’s a job for a master thief, and there’s nothing Charlie Todd likes more than a challenge. To pull off the impossible, Charlie needs a crew, including the only thief who’s ever been able to outfox him.
He broke her heart. But now she must risk it all to save his life…
Lark’s spent years trying to forget her past, but the one thing she can’t ignore is the way a single smile from Charlie still sets her heart on fire. When he proposes they work together again, it feels just like old times, but she has one rule: this is strictly business.
It’s Charlie’s last chance to prove he can be trusted with her heart. But Lark’s keeping a deadly secret. And as passions are stirred and the stakes mount, it might be the kind of secret that could destroy them all…

There are spoilers for the other books in the series!
I wanted a story for Charlie and Lark since they've been introduced in the 1st London Steampunk book. I didn't necessarily see them together then, but I couldn't see them with anyone than each other now! Ms McMaster did an amazing job to remind us of their shared back ground, but without bogging down the story, and also of advancing the overall plot!
The story starts a few days after the Duke of Malloryn has been kidnapped and it shows the Rogues getting ready to go rescue him from Moscow. Charlie convinces/dares Lark to come with them to Russia for her larcenous expertise. They have a past: they've been best friends till circumstances made them grow apart.
I've loved Charlie in the other books, he's been so funny and sometimes sweet and kinda innocent in some instances. He hates the nickname Gemma gave him but it totally fits. Lark starts of very closed off from Charlie and the other Rogues. She has secretes and her secrets have secrets! I've loved discovering them all, and trust me, you so don't expect them!
Besieds Charlie and Lark, we get a few scenes with Malloryn, and dude they are a mind-fuck! Seeing things from his perspective has been eye-opening and I really need to read his book, like right now! All the other Rogues get bigger or smaller roles, and a character from the 1st series gets a secondary role. He was a bit of a scene stealer.
All in all I loved everything and I need Malloryn's book and that of a few of the new characters. If I had my way, Ms McMaster would only write this series and she'd write at least a book a week :D
