A MISSION OF MERCY
World-renowned thriller writer Jesse Falconer lives on a clifftop estate in remote Hawaii. But temptation -- and torment -- will arrive on his doorstep: the chance to save his twin's life...and the allure of the woman who comes to plead that dying brother's cause.
A JOURNEY TO LOVE

The Falconer twins are as different as two men can be; Jesse is a mysterious writer of erotic thrillers inspired by the pain of his past, and Patrick is a bright and successful surgeon who basks in the admiration of his peers and friends. Though different as night and day, nothing could separate the two until suspicions of rape and murder tore them apart. Now, years later, Patrick is diagnosed with aplastic anemia and will certainly die without Jesse's blood, a gift that Patrick would never request. Only Caitlin Taylor, a doctor and Patrick's best friend, has the courage to seek out this remote man and ask for this sacred gift.
But when Caitlin meets the dark twin, she discovers Jesse is a complex and almost mystical man with whom she feels an intense connection. Can she convince this reclusive and wounded man to save his brother's life? Though Patrick faces death, he meets Amanda Prentice, a woman who has the power to inspire him with love, if she can overcome her own tortured history. As Caitlin, Jesse, Amanda, and Patrick move towards a future reunion between the brothers, they must all confront a past of heart-wrenching betrayals and unforgivable pain.
In Thief of Hearts Katherine Stone focuses on the intense and internal emotions of four beautiful people with deeply damaged hearts. Stone's characters are richly drawn and the suspense of Patrick's failing health and the blossoming romances is completely consuming. Stone masters the painful results of past grief with such acuity that no character remains unsuffering. Fluff up the pillow, place the tissues nearby, and prepare for a moving tale of exhausting emotional struggle. --Nancy R.E. O'BrienAbout the Author:
