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.

Caro’s Review: 5 stars
This book was simply amazing! Honestly, I had my doubts going in because in the previous books in this series, I couldn’t stand Stu. Not one single bit. He was always the standoffish, coldhearted asshole. And I was really afraid, that he couldn’t remedy his first impression of him in my eyes. But you know what? He did. L.H. Cosway’s seriously went and created one of the most adorable characters ever in Stu. Seriously. I kid you not. First, he tugged at my heartstrings with his vulnerability. Then he started to make me fall for him with his heart of gold and sealed the deal with his loyalty in the end. If you’re not interested in the story according to the blurb, consider reading this story for the male main character Stu alone, he’s more than worth it. His character growth was amazing. And he and the female main Character Andy were the perfect couple together.
Everything in this story was well balanced. I started reading it and couldn’t stop till the ending and I swooned my butt off. This is definitely a new favorite of this authors for me.
All in all, I rate “Thief of Hearts” with 5 stars and can definitely recommend it. Can be read as a standalone, but I can recommend this whole series. And now I’m looking forward to the next (and obviously final) instalment in this series “Hearts on Air”, scheduled sometime next year.
Sasha’s Review: 6+ STARS
L.H. Cosway words are utterly addictive, beautiful and achingly romantic. She combines worlds and creates magic. Is like if she chooses the differences of the hero and the heroine on purpose, and the magical thing is that she makes them right for one another. Thief of Hearts was pure bliss. Beautiful book bliss.
Oh my STU. I had no idea what Cosway was going to do with him. After meeting the Cross brothers in King of Hearts then more closely on Hearts of Blue I just knew the rest of the Hearts Series was going to be about them, yet Stu was the kind of brother I had no idea what could happen to him. We didn’t exactly knew him, even as Alexis ex I didn’t knew what to expect. Oh and that’s the thing, Thief of Hearts was nothing like I expected it would be. I read the blurb so immediately thought how the story was going to unfold but none that happened. Reading Thief of Hearts was like the feel of a late afternoon when you sit down to watch pride and prejudice with a cup of coffee or tea, and sigh and sigh and sigh and SIGH full of hope and romance. Calm.Thief of Hearts was also calm and peaceful and the weird thing is that what you’re reading is not peaceful, is sad and heartbreaking and lovely and yet when you finish it, it leaves you with a sense of calm and happiness and that happens when you read a really good book.
“Seduce the teacher and steal the painting.” That’s it. That’s all you guys need to know because the rest is really up to you. Is not your typical teacher and student romance if that’s what you’re thinking. IS MORE. SO MUCH MORE. IS A CLASSIC LOVE STORY.
“I’m just the muscle. You’re the brains.” He paused and then glanced at me before whispering, “She’s the heart.”
GOSH! I love that quote, but is more the scene you guys. It has so much heart.
Our heroine Andrea, GOODNESS she was the BEST! She and I had so much things in common, the passion to help people, passion for reading and even her insecurities some were same as mine. I really felt connected to her. And one thing I enjoy is that Cosway writes in the heroine pov and is so easy to slip inside the heroine head and basically be her. I ADORE THAT. Two authors so far can pull that off on my list of faves and Cosway is one of them.
Stu and Andrea were intoxicating. Every moment was full of desire, love and fate. I just love how just the first time they met she affected Stu. Even through her eyes, it was beautiful! Everything about this book was deeply moving. I couldn’t get enough.
Obviously Thief of Hearts can be read as a standalone but I don’t go anywhere without recommending the rest of the series. This series is my true love.
Undeniably one of my favorite reads this year, I hope everyone gets to read it and enjoy as much as I did! Well there’s basically nothing of this author that’s is not a fave.
