Not once in that entire time has she been caught by security personnel. Until today.Kent Whitaker is disgusted by the beautiful thief he’s caught red-handed, and even more disgusted by his attraction to her. While he won’t allow himself to become romantically involved with a thief, he can certainly help out a friend by curing his daughter of bad habits. They both fight their growing attraction, Kent because dishonesty is the one trait he cannot tolerate, and Daisy because Kent is directly interfering with her long-range career goals. But when an unskilled matchmaker tries his hand at getting them together, the unexpected happens to them both as Kent gets distracted and Daisy steals his heart!

    This was a cute read, I really enjoyed it. Daisy has been hired on to be a shoplifter at a department store. She steals from various departments and then writes up reports on what the store can do to prevent shoplifters. One night she is caught by the head of security, Kent. Sparks fly and both are attracted to one another. The problem is Kent thinks she’s a shoplifter and until her job is done she can’t tell him the truth. It was funny to see Kent try and “save” Daisy and cure her from her shop This was a cute read, I really enjoyed it. Daisy has been hired on to be a shoplifter at a department store. She steals from various departments and then writes up reports on what the store can do to prevent shoplifters. One night she is caught by the head of security, Kent. Sparks fly and both are attracted to one another. The problem is Kent thinks she’s a shoplifter and until her job is done she can’t tell him the truth. It was funny to see Kent try and “save” Daisy and cure her from her shoplifting tendencies. They had fun chemistry together. Besides the whole shoplifting and lack of trust angle, there isn’t a lot of conflict in their relationship, which is fine if you’re in the mood for a fun light-hearted story. I liked Daisy’s matchmaking boss Mr. Larsen. It’s kind of left that there may be another book (maybe two, one for each of Daisy’s sisters), and I hope there is. Overall, a super cute chick-lit type book that will definitely keep you entertained. Now I have to decide which of Darcy's books I should read next!Content: Clean.

    A very fun and flirty book w/ lol moments. It had me captivated from the first page. Great characters, fun story. You can see why both parties were equally frustrated. Glad it didn't take them too long to resolve their issues. Really, really enjoyed it!Moral Note: Clean language, some passionate kisses.

    This was really cute! I did get a little annoyed. I felt it was a little too wordy some times. But I did find myself smiling a lot! Kent was a little over baring.

    What a funny and sweet novel. I chuckled throughout as the situations became awkward and the lying increased. Great new idea for a story.

    My second time reading Steal His Heart and it's still a 5 star read for me! I absolutely loved Daisy and Kent! They were hilarious! Daisy is working as a shoplifter and Kent is working security in the same department store. They met for the first time when Kent caught her shoplifting.

I absolutely loved Daisy and Kent! They were hilarious! Daisy is working as a shoplifter and Kent is working security in the same department store. They met for the first time when Kent caught her shoplifting. They were both instantly attracted to each other but neither one wanted to admit it. When Kent found out that Daisy was the daughter of his mentor he tells himself that he needs to "help" her overcome the shoplifting habit for her father's sake. He was a stubborn man who refused to admit his feelings about Daisy. Daisy really had a hard time lying to Kent. She wanted to tell him what she was really doing but in order to do her job she could not tell him. She had to let him think the worst of her just until she finished the job and then she hoped he would be able to understand why she had to lie in the first place.Of course there are little ups and downs before they get their HEA. And let me tell you.. some of those ups and downs will have you giggling or just straight laughing out loud! I loved the ending of this book. It was perfect! I couldn't help but notice this time around that this book is set up to be a possible series. I wonder if Daisy's sisters will eventually get their own books?! Crossing my fingers that they will! I'm thinking that Sam and Lily's story would be a fun read as well! ;)Steal His Heart was one of the first books I read by Diane Darcy and she instantly became a favorite of mine! I would recommend her books to everyone! Can't wait to read even more by her!

    To be honest, I didn't finish this book. I got as far as the wedding and I'd had it with both Kent and Daisy - especially Kent. I roll my eyes shuddering if he is the example of a swoon-worthy hottie. He's domineering, overbearing, jealous, possessive and thinks he has the right to 'change the girl' - grrrrr, even though she was 'acting outside the law'. He is also dumb.

Original and fun.

    Too cute. These little Diane Darcy shorty books (novellas?) are so fun! This one was a great distraction and escape. The premise is darling, too. The kissing was more, uh, involved than the other books of Diane Darcy that I have read. I would flip it on up to a PG13 for that reason.There was one Glaring problem, and it was an editor thing: the word "y'all" is short for You All. Basic grammar, it's the 2nd person, plural. Never would you say "Y'all" to refer to one person, unless your friend was Too cute. These little Diane Darcy shorty books (novellas?) are so fun! This one was a great distraction and escape.

    I reread this story the other day and was pleasantly reminded why Diane Darcy is one of "my" authors. I LOVE this book. Yes, there are the misunderstandings that create the conflict, but they are realistic and fun. I love Daisy and Kent. They are both strong characters - yay! The chemistry was great. I cheered right along with Daisy's matchmaking boss. It was a sweet, smiley read.Rating: 5 StarsContent: Kisses, mild innuendoSource: Amazon Purchase

    I really did like this book. I would like to give this book 3 1/2 stars. I would even give it 4 stars, except that there were a few times while reading it that I found some interactions to be a stretch in the area of believability. However, with that being said, it really was a cute and funny romance --- and best of all, it had some true romantic tensions without unnecessary details.

    What a blast. Couldn't put it down. Too many chuckles and emotional tension. I will be reading this many times just for the great entertainment. I can't wait to read of Mr. Larsons next adventure.

    Fun, clean, witty. Great for a teen girl. Daisy is a shoplifter. She gets caught by Kent, the stores security. He can't figure out why the store owner won't call the police and have her arrested. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

    This was a really enjoyable story. I'd read "She Owns the Knight" and really enjoyed it so I wanted to try another book by Darcy. This one didn't disappoint.
