What do you get when you mix a brooding king with a sexy pickpocket? Not your usual fairytale.

Ava Wilder is beautiful, she lives in a pink castle, and she’s a thief. Rowan Westringham Tate loves power, speed, and Ava.

Their romance is straight out of a dirty Cinderella story, until the one man Ava is running from shows up to claim what she stole—or to claim her.

Now Ava might be forced to take another thing to protect her happily ever after… A life.

DIRTY THIEF is a white-hot CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE in the “Dirty Players” universe. It features secrets, lies, a touch of darkness, and scorching-hot sexy times. Prepare for frequent panty changes, frantic clicking, and rapid breathing until the end. Mature readers only.

I get so freaking giddy when Tia Louise gives us a new romance, and when DIRTY THIEF popped up on my Kindle, I just knew it was going to be a GREAT night! To say I was THRILLED that we were getting more Rowan and Ava, would be an absolute understatement. These two beautiful characters intrigued me from the very beginning, and never really left my heart, so I was SO EXCITED to dive in! DIRTY THIEF is book four in the SCORCHING HOT romance series, DIRTY PLAYERS, but it can be read as a standalone. Although, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the full series, because it is AMAZING! Tia Louise didn’t hold anything back with Ava and Rowan’s story. NOT AT ALL. Let’s just say, we witness a side of King Rowan that I will never forget. If you like a possessive, alpha-male, gorgeous royal who is hell-bent on keeping his woman safe and chasing away her past demons, Rowan is your man! And ladies, HE IS ALL MAN!

“I will not let anyone hurt you, my love,” I whisper. “We’ll sort out your past. I’ll make this right.”

If you have read the first two books in the series, you have an inkling as to what kind of childhood Ava and her sister had. If not, no worries, your heart will break when you read about it in DIRTY THIEF. Emotion pours off of every page, leaving me in tears, happy and sad ones. With how far Ava has come, you will embrace the love that Rowan has for her, and you will root for these two the whole way through. It’s SEXY, SUSPENSEFUL, and downright FILTHY, and I adored every single word. Tia Louise definitely TURNS UP THE HEAT with Dirty Thief, and I for one, hope to see more of these amazing characters in the future. 

“I love you, Ava Wilder-Tate. Your worries are my worries. My shoulders are wider than yours, and my back is stronger. I have no problem taking this from you.”

I’m just about to text Rowan back when the door opens, and he’s standing in the entrance. His face is unreadable. He doesn’t enter. He only waits looking like the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen in a dark suit and tie. He’s still wearing the glasses he’ll occasionally put on when he’s reading, and I rise out of my chair, closing the laptop before I go to him.

“I’m sorry,”I say, reaching out for his hand.

He takes mine and raises it to his lips before pulling me closer.

“What’s troubling you, Ava?”

I look down at my shoes, awkwardness filling my stomach.

“You didn’t have tocome all the way over here.”

“Why are you having second thoughts about the baby?”

I take a deep breath and sigh, lifting my eyes to his.

“It just seems like everything is in such chaos. What makes us want to bring a child into this mess?”

His dark eyes soften as they hold mine, but he doesn’t answer immediately. I love that he doesn’t pat me on the head and tell me to stop being ridiculous. He takes my fears seriously.

“It’s our royal duty,”he finally says. 

Now I’m frowning.

“That’s your only reason?”


He touches the side of my cheek with his thumb, and I wait.

“I’d also like to see what happens when we take half of you and mix it with half of me.”

My frown softens a little.

“I have dreamed of our babies.”

I remember my chubby, dark-haired daydreams. 

“I expect we’ll have an overly analytical, extremely controlled little leader,” he says,and I sigh and nod. “Or a thief who steals cars and races them away.”


I push his arm, ready to storm across the room.
