I salute Naomi Bellis on her amazingly creative mastery in the blending of the paranormal and historical genres. . . . a fantastic and original storyline, probably the most original and well-written plot I have read this year. Ms. Bellis has created a magnificent, powerful and visceral world in her novels, and THEFT OF SHADOWS is a brilliant addition to this series. I truly cannot wait to read more from this talented author.

Bellis’ heroes are wonderful
adventurers - like a Musketeer and the Scarlet Pimpernel all rolled into
one. Her heroines are always strong, independent women, willing to risk
everything to save the day.

Draw Down the Darkness
Dark, sumptuous, powerful, emotional adventure romances with a touch of the paranormal are Bellis’ trademark. She sweeps you into a world as romantic and sensual as it is dangerous and mysterious and allows your fantasies free rein. Her strong voice and powerful plot put her on the top of this month’s paranormal historical readers list.

Bellis's second novel (after Step into Darkness) is a Georgian romantic adventure that blends historical and magical elements to make a satisfying potion with a strong bite . . . This lively adventure features vibrant leads and a tight plot, with well-drawn secondary characters and, in Waring, a bad guy readers will love to hate.

Bellis' second paranormal-steeped historical is a particularly beguiling blend of subtly nuanced characters, elegant writing, and an intriguing plot expertly laced with danger, desire, and dark magic.
