Theif of Hearts by L.H. Cosway -- New Release and Book Review!!

Title: Thief of Hearts
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 4, 2016

Seduce the teacher.
Meet the cousin.
Make a deal.
Steal the painting.

Andrea Anderson has no clue of the thoughts churning around in the dark and dangerous ex-con’s head as he enters her classroom. In fact, she’s momentarily lost for words. Not in her entire teaching career has she had a student who looked quite like Stu Cross.

A widow at just twenty-eight, love is something Andie hasn’t considered a part of her life for a very long time. However, when lingering touches turn to whispered words and hot, searching stares, she begins to wonder if maybe she should take a leap of faith.

But Stu is in her class for a reason, and it has nothing to do with love. He’s there to burrow his way into her life and repay a debt, otherwise his family will suffer. Andie is the first person to show him true kindness since he left prison, and though he doesn’t want to mislead her, he doesn’t have another choice.

Before long, Stu can’t tell whether or not he’s acting anymore, and his feelings for Andie could throw all of his carefully crafted plans into complete and utter disarray.

**Can be read as a stand alone.

My Review: 4.5 Stars

Andrea has had it rough -- losing her husband at just 24, she’s living with her cousin and struggling to make ends meet. She’s trying her best to pay her deceased husband’s medical bills on her meager teacher’s salary, and just barely keeping her head above water. If only there was a way to come out from under the mounds of debt…

Enter Stu. STU! He’s the broody brother that went away to prison and stepped up to take the rap for his family. Mostly, he did it so that his brother Lee  didn’t go away, and could continue his path to living a life crime free. Stu enrolls in Andrea’s adult education class as a condition of his parole…or does he? 

You soon learn that Stu has ulterior motives and he’s in Andrea’s class for one very specific reason – to get close to her cousin. See, Stu met up with some bad dudes in prison and now he owes them a debt, and he’s using Andrea to pay that off. All seems well until his scheme to woo the girl backfires and he actually develops feelings for her! 

So – plot twists, sexy times, a few OMG – “What the WHAT?” moments. This may be my favorite book in the Hearts series. All the other Hearts characters are there, and you get snippets of the Cross family and their women. 

This is part of a series, but can absolutely be read as a stand-alone without any confusion. But why would you miss this great series? Go get the bunch of them and binge, binge, binge! 

There is one more book left in this series, and I. Cannot. Wait. for Trevor's story!
