Some want shiny new toys to play with—others want blood.
Mona Walters dreams of adventure, of a world beyond the shoreline she’s confined to. She yearns for vibrancy in her dull, mundane existence, but succumbs to the bleakness.
Until the necklace her sister wore the night she was brutally murdered shows up on her door wrapped in a neat bow, fueling her to run away and seek out the person responsible for stealing her sister’s life.
Mona wished for more—for color in her gray world.
What she didn’t realize was just how much more she would get.
And that the world outside her own was soaked in red—blood red.
The world she dreamed of is made of nightmares.
A rich, influential world of two brothers—and once they have her in their sights, they plan to keep her there.
Her father kept her secluded for a reason.
Be careful what you wish for.
There’s a thief out there, and he’s coming for Mona’s heart.
Lita T’s Review: 5 STARS
Heart Thief (Sinister Fairy Tales series) by Ker Dukey is a story about Mona. She lives on a secluded island where her father is the head of a religious cult. Always skirting the rules Mona and her sister Clara want out of their drab, rigid existence. When Clara leaves Mona, Mona’s world is turned upside down. Years later when Clara is found dead with her heart cut out Mona is on a mission. Determined to get off the island and discover who killed her sister, Mona leaves the island and embarks on a very dangerous journey. The only clue she has is to seek out the Ward brothers. This story is not loosely based on a child’s fairy tale like the other books in the series but a gritty story of cults, murder, secrets and lies. And in true Ker fashion this is a tale that is sick, dark and twisted with doses of kinky sex. I truly enjoyed this story. Didn’t want to put this story down. Couldn’t wait to get to the end and the ending was a true surprise. Mona was a strong willed young girl who grew stronger and more adventurous as she got older. She knew her own mind and didn’t let anything deter her from her mission, not her father or her betrothed. Of course the Ward brothers didn’t disappoint in looks, sex appeal and a touch of deviousness. 5 stars for me
