Review - The Scarlet Emerald by Kate Rudolph (Stealing the Alpha #1)

The Scarlet Emerald
Stealing the Alpha #1
by Kate Rudolph

Goodreads blurb:  The thief takes what she wants…

When something needs stealing, Mel is the woman to call. But even the best thief has her limits. When someone from her past offers her the one thing that she truly wants she’ll take on an impossible job to get it.

The alpha keeps what's his…

Luke Torres keeps his pack’s prized possession, The Scarlet Emerald, deep in the bowels of his Colorado domain. But most days the stone is more of a burden than a treasure. With a long-anticipated vampire summit on the horizon, he can’t afford to lose the symbol of his pack’s power. And when his sister turns up, things go from complicated to disastrous.

One alpha, one thief, and an adventure that’s only the beginning.

Mel’s goal puts her on a collision course with Luke, leading them both to something they never thought possible and never knew they wanted. And in the end they will both learn that there's more than one way to kiss a cat.

Stealing the Alpha is a three-part series featuring Mel, wereleopard burglar extraordinaire, and Luke Torres, werelion alpha. Join them while they pull off heists, battle witches, learn to trust, and fall in love.

Part two, Entangled with the Thief, and part three, In the Alpha’s Bed, will be available for pre-order soon.

About the Author:  I grew up in a small town in Indiana. When I was a little kid we went to a wolf sanctuary a few hours away from where I lived. It's an event that has stuck with me to this day. Now I write about werewolves, so there's that. Though I'm pretty sure that none of the wolves I saw that day were actually werewolves in disguise.

***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review from ARCade

The cover has quite a bit going on…love the people and the cats, but I’m not sure why the cityscape is at the bottom.

This is my first time reading Kate Rudolph’s work, and it definitely won’t be my last.  I love finding amazing new authors.  I’m kicking myself for not reading this sooner.  She has created this amazing world that I definitely want to get lost in again because it is unique. She definitely keeps you guessing and surprises you because things happened that I hadn’t thought of which is always a lovely surprise when an author can do that :)  I really like Mel, but at the same time she is a puzzle because I still don’t have all the pieces to figure her out or the sexy Alpha Luke.  This book has it all magic, Witches, cat shifters, vampires, and still has unknowns to keep you guessing :)  I do not know if for sure, but I’m guessing that this is a serial because it ended on a cliffhanger and the description mentions Part Two not book 2.  This doesn’t bother me, but if you don’t like cliffhangers, collect all the parts until it is complete and then read them.  Please don’t let this stop you from reading it eventually though because it is really awesome :)

I highly recommend this story to all the paranormal fans out there especially if you love cat shifters :)

Interested in reading???
