From the moment he saw Jennifer Roberts, his instinct was to protect her. But she wanted nothing to do with him. In fact, the last thing Jennifer wanted to do that Saturday afternoon was call the police. She didn’t trust them. She’d fallen hard for a cop – the exact person every child is told to run to for safety – and he betrayed her and broke her heart. She wouldn’t make that mistake again. But she has no choice when she discovers her apartment has been broken into and five simple words turn her world upside down: “You called for the police?” When blond-haired, blue-eyed Max Domer walks in her doorway he is ready to protect and serve. It is his motto. It will be her downfall. Max is ready to leave Center City behind, cut all ties and make a fresh start as a detective on the West Coast. There is nothing unusual about the burglary call he catches, except that the woman is stunning and, for some reason, antagonistic toward police. But she’s caught in someone’s crosshairs – her car is stolen, her father dies and murder comes to her doorstep – and, like it or not, she needs his help. But while Max is on the trail of a master crime ring, the real thief sets about stealing his heart. And Jennifer, who innocently lets her guard down, learns she can’t judge a man by his uniform. They are polar opposites destined to stand together and fight for their future.

This is a story that comes from my heart. It's based on real-life events and features two men who, in my mind, are real-life heroes.

“Thief Of The Heart,” author Rena Koontz’s third romantic suspense novel, does more than cast a passionate love story and weave an intriguing plot. This page-turner also steals a reader’s heart — capturing your imagination through characters that linger long after the epilogue...Koontz’s trademarks are plot twists and characters that keep readers guessing as the pages fly, and “Thief Of The Heart” shines on both counts.


I have read all three of Rena Koontz books and once again after I start, I can't put it down. Her characters are real-like and the suspense made it easy to keep reading. I can't wait for her next book!
