Release Blitz: To Catch a Thief by Nana Malone

The only thing more dangerous than kissing the enemy... sleeping with the enemy. Good thing I had no intentions of doing either.

To Catch a Thief by Nana Malone is now live!

To catch a thief... you have to think like a thief.

And Rian Beaumont was my mark.
I'd start by stealing her kisses. But I already knew that wouldn't be punishment enough.

The only crime I committed was almost stealing her from my brother, and for that, I served my time.

She thought she knew me, but she had it all wrong-- I was nothing like my brother. To prove her wrong, I was going to steal her heart and make her mine.


Oliver Wexler might not have been the one that ruined my life five years ago, but he basically drove the getaway car.

The only thing more dangerous than kissing the enemy... sleeping with the enemy. Good thing I had no intentions of doing either.

But Ollie had a pesky habit of sticking his nose-- and his lips--where they didn't belong. Even though I've already learned my lessons about falling for a man like him. Because with a Wexler brother, it was never only your future on the line . . . but your heart too.

USA Today Bestseller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion, and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

She holds the power to enchant him, but he only wants to debunk it.
When a lass's college sweetheart calls her insane and promptly dumps her, she has a right to expect never to see him again. But Luke Turner has returned—by crashing my cousin's wedding reception, no less. Has he come to win me back? No. The scunner wants to "study" me so he can determine how to disabuse me of my Wiccan beliefs.

Maybe Luke is the only man who ever made me wish I were "normal," but I don't feel that way anymore.

Kirsty MacTaggart was my first love—until she announced she's a witch. The girl must be insane to believe she has "witchy powers." Twelve years after we broke up, I find myself face to face with the only woman I've ever loved. But the experiment I'm about to conduct isn't quite what I've told Kirsty it is. Will she ever forgive me when she finds out my ulterior motive?

Checkmate: an act or instance of maneuvering the opponent's king into a check from which it cannot escape, thus bringing the game to a victorious conclusion.

Serena Valentine had it all - the Blood Empire in which she was the reigning queen, a family that loved her, and subjects that worshiped her. But most importantly, she had peace. Being a living relative of the Vampire Queen, Lillith, Serena strived to maintain peace between the vampires and humans, looking at humans as a means of survival and not as the enemy.

Claus Devlin had differing views on humans and more importantly hated the fact that a woman reigned over the Blood Empire. Eventually, his way of thinking got him banished from the Empire and his intended bride, Serena. Angered by her father’s disregard for his way of thinking, Claus built an army of his own and rose up against Serena and her kingdom. He killed her family and in turn banished her from the Blood Empire.

Defeated, Serena leaves her beloved kingdom with one vow - she will return and take back what is rightfully hers.

When Serena finally returns to the Blood Empire, she comes with a vengeance. She plays the game according to Claus’ rules. She answers to his every desire and shows him every day, that she belongs to him and him alone. She is punished and treated like a common slave. But through it all her one mission is to make Claus believe that she has submitted to him completely all the while lying in wait for the right time to strike against him. When opportunity presents itself in the form of a handsome guard who is loyal to her, Serena makes her move and puts the king under direct attack from which escape is impossible.
Stalemate: a situation in which further action or progress by opposing or competing parties seems impossible.

Following her mother’s death, Calista rises as the new queen for the Arelia Region of Merfolk, and her troubles start. A failing region, suffering subjects, humans and merfolk killing each other, and a queen over all merfolk who doesn’t care what happens to any region, least of all, Calista’s.

With her sub-mate by her side, Calista knows she must rescue her region, but she cannot from her current position. Determined to restore order and safety to all merfolk, she does the only thing she can: challenge the current queen for her throne.

Queen's Pin: A pinned piece can still check the opposing king and therefore can still defend friendly pieces against captures made by the enemy king.

Knowing vulnerable information will help me during an attack, giving me the advantage. King Devlin is expecting to marry the woman his father arranged for him. It would secure his seat on the throne by his birthday. A quick switch guarantees me to be queen, regaining my stature and making me his wife. Once he finds out the truth, it will be too late. Being tricked into marrying a banished princess wouldn't fair well to our unforgiving people.

My father arranged a marriage to a beautiful woman who will give me heirs and secure our bloodline on the throne. Feisty and more responsive to me than I could have ever imagined, she is perfect in every way. With the prestige of her family, my wealth, and our popularity, there would be no question of our destiny to be king and queen.

Refute: To prove that a previously accepted move, line, or opening is deficient when the best play is pursued by both sides. It is not necessarily the best move, but good enough to refute the opponent’s previous move.

A night out at Club Hellion was supposed to be my remedy for a horrid week, fate had a different plan though. King Demarq requested me for a night in his bed but I wasn’t interested. His family took away my birthright including that throne he likes to sit on. So excuse me for hating everything about him. I won’t dance with the devil, even if he is the dragon king of our realm. I’ve got better things to do like plotting his downfall. It’s time for the rightful bloodline to take a stand and for his to die off. End of story.

Nobody tells me what I can’t have, including the temptress Andaya. She walked away from a once-in-a-lifetime offer that will ruin everything she touches. I have the power to make her suffer, and I will. The destruction of her self-determination could have been prevented if only she would have said yes. Either way, I win.
