She upholds the law. He breaks it.
Two blue hearts, both alike in bravery
In not-so-fair London, where we lay our scene
From gun crime to petty theft
Where family is blood and survival makes hands unclean
In this place, we find two hearts who should be foes
And yet, amidst the turmoil their love still grows
Misadventure abounds and the divide will bring them strife
But with luck, death doesn’t always mean an end to life.
Hearts of Blue is a standalone contemporary romance that tells the story of star-crossed lovers Karla Sheehan and Lee Cross, a police constable and the thief who steals her heart.
Release Date: November 19, 2015
Constable Karla Sheehan knew from the first moment that she first laid eyes on Lee Cross that he would be nothing but trouble. He is far too gorgeous and smart for his own good and he doesn’t mind painting outside the lines of the law.
Everywhere she looks – everywhere she goes, she sees him. Falling under his spell isn’t something that she ever planned on, yet the more she finds out about the man under the balaclava, the more she loses her grip on her heart.
Everybody’s always so quick to judge, but we’re all born into our own patch. Some patches are worse than others, and yeah, most of the time you get a choice on what way to live. Trouble is, sometimes the choice is between bad and worse. I had two choices, and if I had picked the one I didn’t, my brothers would’ve been split up and shipped off to a bunch of shitty care homes, where they’d-a been turned into victims. Instead, I chose the other option and turned them into survivors.
Lee Cross grew up hard and did whatever he had to do to protect his family. He’s not a cold heartless criminal and believes that there really can be honour among thieves.
He’s going to prove to Karla that what is growing between is more than just physical. But when you live your life so close to the edge, you can’t see the danger in falling in love.
I’d never loved before. Now I loved too much. And in the morning, I’d lose him.
L.H. Cosway has the most unique way of breaking your heart and then healing it beautifully with just her words – and Hearts of Blue is yet another glorious addition to her literary arsenal.
It encompassed so many intense emotions that it literally left me reeling. One moment I was swooning my knickers off and the next I was trying – unsuccessfully – to hold back the tears. Not only is this book the best in the Hearts series so far, it’s also on my list for the Best of 2015. I know that Lee and Karla will stay with me for a very long time to come…
