Almost the same here, except I don't like fighting with a shield, so I went with magic instead.
It's an... interesting build, I have to admit. Heavy armor and sneak works okay and the armor rating helps balance out the lack of a shield. I basically sneak around, sinking arrows into faces until someone discovers me, at which point I whip out my ol' sword and proceed to punish the weak in close range combat with fire and stabbing. Lots of stabbing.
The 1h sword fatality where you hug someone and stab the sword clear through their torso is still my favorite of them all. It's even better when your left hand is a ball of fire when it happens since you grab the opponent's head with that hand during the animation.
Flaming hand to face, followed by sword through chest in slow-motion. Sexy.
