Adrianne is a princess, with jewels, power and lots of money. She also happens to be one of the world’s greatest thieves and she has been practicing for years to take revenge on her father. Philip used to be a thief and now he is a cop, he catches thieves, but he can’t seem to stop wanting Adrianne. When Philip finds out that Adrianne plans to steal what was supposed to be her mothers’ dowry back from her father, he decides to help her. Now he and Adrianne have to decide whether they want to make what they were only pretending to have real. Adrianne is a tough heroine, she had a messed up child hood and had to take care of her mother. She is also really smart and giving, she tries to help other woman. Philip is interesting, he is strong but at the same time he has more patients than a saint when it comes to Adrianne. I loved the storyline, not many women would have the courage to go back to a place that holds such horrible memories. The romance in the book was not overplayed, there was just enough to keep the story going without it consuming the entire book. Sweet Revenge was an enjoyable afternoon read.
