Not for nothing is Gabriel Sinclair known as the King of Hearts. His wit beguiles, his charm seduces, and he’s never met a woman he couldn’t captivate. He's at home on the sea but nowhere else. As for family? He has seen enough madness in his own to last a lifetime. He shuns hopeless causes, deeper emotions, and any whiff of permanence.
Widowed Louisa Peabody tolerates no man's touch. Her past has shown her men are seducers and abusers. Accordingly, she devotes herself to aiding abused women. After she accidentally saves Gabriel’s life, he agrees to help her stage a daring rescue. But it’s a devil’s bargain: Can she protect herself from that wild, reckless fire in his eyes?
The League of Rogues series features daring English lords who risk all for their country. Hardened and deadly, they have no use for love—until it ensnares them…
About the Author
Eileen Putman’s love of England’s Regency period and the Napoleonic War period has inspired research trips to Britain, Ireland, France and other countries — there being no substitute for stepping on the soil that Beau Brummell and his champagne-polished Hessians once trod.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am voluntarily submitting my honest review after receiving an ARC of this ebook via NetGalley. King of Hearts is a fun, fast-paced read with romance, tragedy, heartbreak, triumph, hope and a dash of comic relief. The characters are exceptionally complex, and despite the brevity of the novel, Putman paints a vivid picture of how each one's history and present circumstances shape their personality, desires and outlook on the world. This is a beautiful romance about love's transformative power with just the right amount of human quirkiness to make the characters more realistic and interesting and the story more lively and entertaining.
